I have a desktop with no wireless card in it. To use the wireless service, I have Asus Pocket Wireless Access Point (WL-330gE). Now I want to connect to the wireless network connection for my desktop pc by using this Access Point in Adaptor mode. So, the basic idea is just to capture the wireless network connection through access point and transfer it through regular LAN cable so that I can use the internet (like in wifi)
For this I have done the following steps:
The IP address of the access point is 192.168.1.220. I connected the ethernet port of the Access point to the ethernet port of my desktop using the regular ethernet cable. The IP address of the ethernet in my desktop automatically became 192.168.1.2.
Now, when I typed 192.168.1.220 on internet explorer, I could see the number of wireless network connections available in my place. I connected to one of the wireless connections ( free_bird).
Though the connection was there, I couldn't connect to the internet at this point. After that, I unplugged the RJ45 cable from the accesspoint and reconnected it. Still there is no internet connection.
I set the IP address of my desktop to be set automatically but it still doesn't work. I don't know what could be the solution? Could anyone help me?
