Re: Wireless Network Connection - Annoying Problems
I'm a bit confused here. The computer you are trying to connect is GETTING the internet via ethernet cable from another computer? Or is it GIVING the internet to another computer via ethernet cable?
I am no expert on connection sharing, but I believe the computer giving the internet needs to be the one set up as Shared to other Computers.
The computer getting the internet needs nothing in particular, I'd think you can set it up for DHCP and get an address from the other computer. If you connect but can't access the internet, you may need a DNS nameserver listing in /etc/resolv.conf.
