As title says.

I have a wireless enabled eee pc 700 on XP SP2, a high performance new gaming desktop, and some ethernet cables
and a netgear RP614 v4 router.

I built my desktop from scratch but the network card is bogged doen in the warehouse its shipping from due to excessive
holiday backlog and not expected anytime soon.

I want to be able to use the net on my desktop for gaming and convenience (20" screen for browsing rather than 5" etc).

I have tried bridging the connection and directly connecting the two PC's and also puting the eee like this into the net in port on router. If this is the solution i obviously didnt do it right. Anyone got any ideas on how to help me?

Cheers, Chris

Sorry, don't quite understand.

You have internet (ADSL via Wireless?) on the eee?

You have ethernet on your new PC?

You are waiting on a wireless network card (which you could just pop down to DSE and get)?

Where is your wireless coming from , the netgear RP614 is a wired router?

If you have a wireless ADSL modem or something, it should have 4 lan ports on the back, just plug a cable from one of them to the PC.
If you have a wireless access point coming off the router, just plug you computer into one of the other 4 ports on the router.
Or do you have a different configuration?

How can you connect the network on the desktop if the network card is not there?

Or you didn't give us all the information?

MY aplogies, i will clarify some stuff

I cannot get to a PC store and buy a card due to my location, and i have one ordered from ascent but it was delayed over xmas (it is now here as of yesterday).

The wireless comes from a dynalink wireless router elsewhere in the building, in the room with the desktop i have at my disposal a netgear router, a DSE switch and the eee and desktop.

As for lack of network card, my Asus motherboard has an onboard backup graphics intergrated unit and intergrated wired network card. The network card that was coming was a wireless PCI card.

Even though the problem is now obsolete im still interested in how this would be done for future reference.

Thanks for your time and patience.

Chris

ahh ok.

You could have just run the XP home networking wizard on the computer connected wirelessly back to the Dynalink. It would have asked you which of your network connections was the connection to the internet (in this case the wireless connection), and turned on a DHCP server on the other one (the wired connection). From there you would plug in your other computer with a cable directly to the connected one (either a cross-over cable, or if the new computer has got gigabit ethernet or an Auto-Negotiating network port a straight through cable would do). From there, it should just work.

We do this occasionally for clients who are have a conference or a meeting somewhere there is no internet/phone lines and use a Vodem as the internet connection and share it out from a little XP machine with or without a wireless router attached.
