Create a wireless network bridge
Authored by: Firefishe on Apr 20, '04 01:37:04AM

Hello. I am using my G4 1GHz powerbook to connect to my linksys wireless router which is connected to my cable modem and the Internet.

I have an IBM laptop with a pcmcia network card that I am using to connect to the powerbook's ethernet port, so the ibm laptop can share the apple's internet connection. However, I have run up against a snag.

I can ping out via the command line on the ibm laptop to various sites such as,, and, my choices for a "ping" test. I get ping replies back, indicating that the ibm is able to ping out to those sites through the mac.

Problem is, I can't bring up a web page on the ibm. Is there any reason why I would not be able to do this? I have Internet Connection Sharing and Windows Sharing enabled on the powerbook.

Kind regards,
