Setting up Fedora 15 for ethernet-wireless bridge
 
I am not too knowledgeable on networking, however I want to set up my notebook as a router so that my desktop can access the internet through the notebook's wireless card. This should preferably be done in as secure a way as possible.

After searching lots of online articles, I am still unable to achieve this. I have ip forwarding enabled and have tried numerous things with iptables and brctl. Can anybody tell me how I can get this to work? If possible I would prefer something that would work for more than 1 machine as I plan to expand this operation, however right now I will take what I can get.

Thank-you in advance for any assistance offered,
-kev717.

Figured it out -- right under my nose: had to add a new network device that was "share to other computers" in network connections under wired. I prefer doing it the command line way, but as long as it works I'm happy.
