View Full Version : [ubuntu] Using wireless and wired port at same time

September 23rd, 2009, 03:10 AM
Hi all,

I'm doing some software development with ethernet-connected devices but I'm not always close to a wired network to plug them in. Is there a way I can use my existing wireless modem as-is and connect these devices to my laptops ethernet jack and gain access to them?

I'm presuming I would have to turn on a DHCP server and possibly use a crossover adapter but I'm at a loss as to how to configure my machine to enable the rest of it.

I'm cool with the command-line so if any of you can let me know what to do the thanks in advance!
