Read the the description in the link again.

Makes no difference which is connected wireless to the router.

Will use a Cross Over Cable and Make a BRIDGE connection.

I know it doesn't make a difference which is connected to router.

I have the crossover cable made and it WORKS.

To BRIDGE a connection, you highlight both the WIRELESS card and LAN card, right click and choose BRIDGE CONNECTIONS? Correct?

That should be Correct although MS instructions say to use ICS with a Hub.

We shall try to McGyver the setup.

I've wondered this for a while, how do you get your icon above your username to animate?

Thanks for the help Rick P. and glad you finally got this to work hArLtRoN.

You what the funny part is?

I had problems BRIDGING! my setup at home. And that's when I decided to just share the connection. LOL

I am still confused as to why you such trouble sharing the connection.

But the good thing is that you are now connected!

Good job guys.

Cheers!

It all began in the 1960s when I stole a couple of books on electronics from my high school library.

I did return the books by mail some 30 years later. (LOL) (LOL)

True Story !!
