slmagus Posted January 2, 2011 Share Posted January 2, 2011 I just moved to a new apartment and while I will be getting FIOS soon, it won't be here until next month. So one of my neighbors is kindly lending me their wifi. Unfortunately, I have a desktop that I would like to connect as well with no wireless card. How do I connect and configure my desktop Ethernet(win7) to my laptop(debian) such that internet requests are forwarded via the laptop and out the wifi? If this helps, I want to do this: Desktop ethernet -> ethernet -> laptop eth0 -> laptop wifi -> neighbors AP -> Internets I realize I might need a crossover(autosensing nics) to go between desktop and laptop, and assign static addresses to those interfaces. I am more concerned with the necessary steps to configure the computers to route/forward between networks. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
