I want to set up a network bridge to share the internet connection from my router. I don't need this bridge to have a firewall. Does anyone have a step-by-step guide for this? Thanks in advance for your help.
wait I'm confused. I'm looking for a router? I already have a router connected to this pc. I want to connect this pc to another so they both can have internet. I used to have Windows XP. In that, I would select both NIC's right click and select bridge. Windows XP would create a bridge. So wouldn't that mean I'm looking for how to create a bridge?
Sorry to be confusing you.
Does your router have more than 1 port for local computers? If so then connect the other computer to that port.
Does your router have NAT support, then the easiest way is to buy a small ethernet switch/hub.
If your router doesn't have NAT built in then you would have to go with bridging or routing in your first computer. (This of course has the disadvantage that the first computer need to be running for the other to reach Internet).
OK I think this needs more clarification. I have this router http://www.dlink.com/products/?sec=0&pid=62 .
I have 3 computers. I have 2 computers which connect to the router. One of these it in the same room as the router, the other is connected by a 70 foot cable. The 3rd computer is in the same room as the 70 foot cable. Instead of running another 70 foot cable to the router, I would like to create a bridge between the two computers using two nics.
I tried creating a bridge using this guide here : http://www.linux.com/howtos/BRIDGE-S...e-bridge.shtml
I have ethernet bridging enabledc in my kernel and I have installed the bridge utilities. After I create my bridge, both Nic's do not have an IP address. Also when I restart my computer the bridge is not there.
Thats my situation, I hope someone can help.
