Subject: [nSLUG] PCI wireless card as access point

At the Green Party office is a computer with a wired and a wireless PCI 
card. The wired is connected to Eastlink cable modem. Can the wireless 
card be used as an access point for wireless laptops giving them 
internet access also?

The crappy part of this is: that the box is running Windoze XP :-[ , 
haven't used Windoze since 98SE. The stuff has been loaned, so it is not 
mine to change, as much as I would like to.



You can use the network sharing in XP but I think that is limited to adhock
not a managed connection.
