I recently came about an old desktop pc with windows xp installed on it. I have it in a room where I cannot get a wired internet connection to it. I do have a laptop with windows 7 and wireless capabilities, and I am wondering if there is a way to bridge the connection from the wireless signal on the laptop to the desktop. The problem is that I do not have any crossover cables to spare. I do however, have 2 cat5 ethernet cables and a linksys 5-port workgroup switch. Is there a way to bridge the connection through that?
