USB DSL + Airport + Wireless Access Point?
Authored by: shucks on Feb 14, '03 03:33:50AM

I've this problem that was ok before 10.2.4. But somehow it got broken after I installed 10.2.4 update. I have a G4 PowerBook that is connected to the net via USB SpeedTouch DSL. I have an linksys router+4 port switch (with the router disabled since i'm not connecting to internet via ethernet dsl) I have a Debian box connected to the 4 port switch. Now before all i have to do is connect to the internet and leave internet sharing off, put the debian to use the ip address of my g4 powerbook airport card ( as the gateway and it works! But now with the latest update I tried all sorts of combination (turning internet connection sharing for my USB DSL to share through ethernet (configured to and also setting to share through g4 airport (which is hopeless coz i can't even ping when i did this)) Phew that seems complicated to right. Anyone of you got any ideas what went wrong? P/S reason why i didn't just use a ethernet cable from my G4 to the linksys wireless switch is because i'm lazy to buy a new ethernet cable and am so stubborn and also would like to have my powerbook mobile at the same time).
