View Full Version : [ubuntu] Connecting to Wifi through wireless router and computer with XP

November 24th, 2009, 07:27 PM
Hi Everyone,
I have a bit of a problem and was wondering if anyone could help me out. I am trying to connect my Ubuntu 9.04 notebook to the internet via a wireless router through a desktop running XP and to a wifi hotspot. I realise this is a complicated way of doing things, but I live on a boat so everything is complicated. So far I have been able to connect the XP desktop to the internet, enable Internet sharing. Also the Ubuntu notebook can connect to the wireless router, but does not seem to be able to connect to the internet.
So in short notebook (Ubuntu) > linksys wrv200 router > XP desktop > wifi antenna > internet.
If anyone could shed some light on this I would be very grateful.
