Quote (I use a usb network adapter for my internet access. How can I configure my computer to share the internet with the ethernet port, so that I can use my wireless router for my laptop? Its like this. I get my internet off of my neighbors wireless access point with a usb network adapter. I want to send it through a wireless router so that my other wireless devices can connect to the internet. Do I need to bridge something, or will this even work? My adapter is outside because the signal is very weak to non existing inside. Thanks in advance, Jayden)

raytaylor my ip is 192.168.1.103

Does your neighbour know that you are stealing his bandwidth?

Here in New Zealand, your actions are illegal - assuming that you have not obtained your neighbour's approval.

Oh and I'm from the U.S. not Canada like my profile says. I'm not sure why it set me there. Even if I didn't have permission its a standard practice here....

Great video.

Should be compulsory viewing for all wireless router owners/users.

Zippity: Does your neighbour know that you are stealing his bandwidth?

Even if you did have permission from your neighbour, isn't it still against your T&C's to share a residential ADSL connection? I'm pretty sure they say you can't do this...

Stupid, stupid lady!

Calling up for help because she can't access her internet connection that she had be stealing for the past year and a half.

Some people are just ignorant..... it doesn't matter if it's common practise, it's illegal and you are putting yourself at risk!

You said you shared the bill, but we have no way to ensure that you actually do... I think the community here (together) wants to avoid to come across as giving advice to an activity that seem borderline shady practices.

Geekzone cannot be seen to encourage illegal activities.

Turn on internet connection sharing and plug the wifi router into the lan of the computer should do it.

I have done it before at tech when they wanted to audit computers before allowing them on the wifi before they deployed the hotspot SSID.
