View Full Version : [ubuntu] [Help]WLAN Internet to LAN

November 19th, 2009, 11:45 AM

I am a bit desperate because I cant find any reference on the net to my specific problem.
What I am trying to achieve is distribution of a wireless internet connection to clients that are on a wired ethernet.
Apparently only the other way around is shown in many tutorials.
I got one wireless ethernet card and one wired ethernet card.
Also there is a wlan router around that supplies wireless internet.
There is no way to connect to that router over a wired connection.
I already read this (https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Router) and what I need to know is if I need one aditional (wireless/wired) network card or If I am good to go with this setup.
Also some minor directions on howto setup the /etc/network/interfaces would be appreciated.
My plan was to simply bridge the eth0(wired card) with my wlan0 and all's fine or is there an error in my master piece ? ;)
Thank you all for your help!
