    Exclamation Creating a Network Bridge (Ubuntu 12.04)

    I've been all around the internet trying to see how I can get this to work. It shouldn't be this hard considering Microsoft has made this as simple as point and click since pre XP.
    Here's my setup
    I have a wireless card and an ethernet card. Where my computer is located I pick up on the wireless signal. I am attempting to get that signal to be bridged to my ethernet card so I can then hook up an additional router and extend my network range. I am fairly certain I will need to do some manual good 'ol fashioned typing to do this (which is fine) but all the guides I read are incorrect or simply don't work on 12.04.

    PLEASE HELP!!!!

    Network connection sharing is built in to Network Manager.
    Step by step instructions are at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/In...nectionSharing.
    It's very easy.
