This is the setup i have right now:
In my basement i have the home computer, wired to a router thats connected to the cable modem, i have my computer (in my room, 2nd floor) also wired to the same router. i'm trying to setup my computer to act as a wireless access point of sort, so my sister can connect to the internet on her laptop (windows vista).
On my computer i currently have 2 Ethernet ports, 1 is wired to the router downstairs, the other is free...what I'd like to happen is to use that free Ethernet port and plug in my access point and relay the signal to her room, which is right beside mine.
Is it at all possible?
thanks, hope to hear from some of you.
For additional info, i have it plugged in right now but its showing limited or no connectivity, with the yellow triangle/exclamation point on the local area connection 2.
