View Full Version : [ubuntu] share wireless connection

November 15th, 2009, 12:10 AM
Hello guru's,


ubuntu 9.10 box dual bootable (the other OS is, forgive me, Windows XP)
wireless PCI card Linksys (working like a charm with both OS'es)
an access point somewhere

I would like to use my PC's ethernet port to connect with a cross cable another PC and share the internet access with the second PC.
I must admit that with Windows this task is very easy. I spent a lot of time googling around but I haven't been able to find an easy way to do the same with ubuntu.

Anyone can help?

Thanks in advance

Here (https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Internet/ConnectionSharing) is an ICS How-to that includes this (https://help.ubuntu.com/community/WifiDocs/ShareEthernetConnectionThroughWireless) link for wireless. It is the other way around, though - connecting to internet via wire, sharing via wireless.
