Default Need help to set up wireless home network from wireless internet connection

I am not even sure if what I want to do is possible or what equipment I will need. I live in a RV. The campground we are currently staying at has a wireless hotspot. I connect to it with my laptop's wireless adapter. To get onto the internet i have to log into a website and put my user name and password in. I would like to set up my own wireless network inside my RV. In my mind it seems like there should be something I could hook up to my computer, which has an internet connection after I have logged into the Tengo internet, that would then broadcast out the internet connection so I could use my printer wirelessly, use my ipod and tivo all at the same time. The wireless printer and TIVO connections wont work because neither can sign in on the webpage and only one item can be logged in at a time. Any ideas if this is possible, what equipment and what configurations I need? I have a computer with a windows vista operating system. Thanks

Depending on your operating system, you could use Windows Internet Connection sharing.
Wifes laptop connects to internet, shares out ethernet port on wifes laptop to your local router(or access point) (which you'd need to buy).
The laptop would have to be on, and logged in in order for it all to work.

Default Thank you, please explain more

Thank you for your help. I have done a basic search to try and set the network up this way but most responses all are about laptop to laptop sharing. I have enabled internet connection sharing on the wireless network connection and I have a D-Link DIR-615 router. I have a CAT 5 Ethernet cable or CAT 6 crossover cable to use. Can you provide some more steps on how I get the wireless network to share to the with the local area connection and then how the router should be connected?

i think you need a wireless client router. there are available. the wireless client router acts as a client for the wireless hotspot, then it routes for your laptops and other devices.

now you have a DIR615, you can search DD WRT firmware to see if they support this in client router mode.
