I'm new to the Ubuntu system and would like to migrate over.
My problem is that as I currently have no access to a hardwire landline, my only access to the internet is with a 3G USB dongle and that of course has on Windows Drivers. It's a Huawei E220 HSDPA USB Modem from T-Mobile (UK).
What I would like to do is set up a small network using redundant kit.
I have a Netgear Cable Router, Netgear Ethernet Printer Server, PC Box with XP and a laptop with Ubuntu installed.
If I can get the laptop and the XP Box to share the internet, I'll invest in a wireless AP to replace the current CAT5 cable used with the laptop.
I have the Laptop connect to port 1
The XP Box is connect to port 2
The Printer Server is connected to port 4.
I can see the Windows shares in Ubuntu, but I can not access the internet.
I have enabled Sharing on the T-Mobile Dial-up but this is beyond my current skills set.
Any advice or help would be very gratefully received.
Running XP Pro and 8.0.4 LTS.
