I have 5 computers all running XP sp2 Home Edition. Two of them are wired via ethernet directly into a D-Link Router. The other three have DLink wireless NIC's.

One of the wired computers has a DLInk wireless NIC in addition to the ethernet interface. I have tried bridging this computers two network connections so the 3 with wireless can see the router and use the broadband connection. I have pulled almost all my hair out trying to get this to work. I made sure promes. mode was enabled and still nothing. All cards are in Ad-Hoc mode. Any help would be appreciated.

The router assigns IP addresses to the 2 wired computers and you can access the internet from the both of thim.

Well, I have never done this before personally, but I believe all you would need to do is run Internet Connection Sharing on the ethernet adapter in the PC and then join the wireless computers to the same workgroup and hopefully your wireless pc's will be receiving IP addresses from the wireless adapter on the pc with ICS running on it.
