Can I use pcmcia wifi and a router to share internet access?
Would it be possible to use a laptop with wifi card in it as a repeater for a network?
Basically my laptop can get a signal from one half of the house, but rather than run cable all over, I'd like to use this laptop's wifi to share Internet access on a switch for the other half.
The laptop should receive the signal (wlan0) and forward it on to the Linksys switch (via eth0), sharing Internet access to all who are plugged into that switch. I realize that these computers' ethernet speeds would be limited to the connection speed of the wifi, but its ok for now.
The laptop is currently running Xubuntu 6.06 Alternate (for low-RAM systems).
