Make Linksys WMP54g card AP
“IN SITU: have WiFi on my computer, I want it now on my Blackberry”
WIRELESS CARD:= Linksys WMP54G
BLACKBERRY:= Pearl Flip 8220
WIRELESS BRIDGE:= Airlink 101 over-firmware’d with DD-WRT.
Having my desk in a location rather remote to the wireless Access Point, the 802.11g WIRELESS CARD for my XP computer doesn’t get any useful signal. I am lucky to rely on a WIRELESS BRIDGE which even in my desk gets a pretty good signal, so I plug my XP computer via Ethernet to this WIRELESS BRIDGE, and voilà.
I Wish I could use my BLACKBERRY to access the WiFi from within my desk as well; This BLACKBERRY certainly cannot get good WiFi signal right there; I’d like to use my XP PC’s WIRELESS CARD as an access point for my BLACKBERRY. Sadly, the WIRELESS CARD properties tab doesn’t even have a “Station/AP” property switch. Although I’ve heard reports of this being possible in Linux with this very card, I haven’t found a way to configure it in Windows so far. Manufacturer’s driver updates haven’t been of help.
WIRELESS CARD: Linksys WMP54G
BLACKBERRY: Pearl Flip 8220
WIRELESS BRIDGE: Airlink 101 over-firmware’d with DD-WRT.
Thanks in advance!
