How easy is to do that with my linux?


Dear all,
a short question to our linux users.

I am using the latest opensuse and I am connected to internet through ethernet.
I want at the same time connect my cell phone to a private wifi network (I have an android app that allows me to send sms messages remotely from my comptuter).

For that I guess I have to buy
-the cheapest wireless usb card
-make a hidden wireles access point that only my cell phone can connect to
-make a routing table and ip assignment so my internet connection keeps running smoothly.

Would it be easy to do that in my opensuse?

Regards
Alex

hm. I would say that is relatively easy, but obviously it depends on your knowledge. What have you done so far, is there any problem?

We'd have to know more about how this sms deal works. For example, I have a motorola phone. It integrates to chrome and once connected to motorola it will then work on a chrome popup.

Hi all,
I am really sorry I did not reply back after that many days. Unfortunately my computer died (at home) in the mean time and I had to spent time on the recovering process.

Now at my works computer.
The application in android is called: http://mightytext.net/
that connects the cell phone over wifi and allows you to control over wifi-web browser remotely the phone. Great app!

I do not have wifi at my work and thus I bought the http://www.amazon.de/gp/product/B00A...ilpage_o03_s00

Currently looks like is not recognized by kernel

I guess you are asking now how to use internet sharing in windows 8 to a wifi cell phone.

As I recall MS made you issue some commands to get that adapter on a new virtual lan.

See if this how to doesn't fix it. http://www.7tutorials.com/how-turn-y...i-access-point

A long time ago I just used a program called analogx proxy. It worked great for common http but not sure about any other stuff. It may still work but you'll still have to get the wifi to wifi on either in a proxy state or direct. (not sure if they got wifi direct working either)

Hi,
I was able finally to make my wifi card to work.
I can not see it in my yast but I am not sure how I should configure it.

To remind one more.
I have a computer that connects to internet over Ethernet cable.
I added a second card which is my wifi. I want to make that wifi card
1. A hotspot that is not "visible". My cell phone would connect to that cellphone. For that I would use a private ip address.
2. Route internet packets of my cell phone to the internet. That means cell phones sends something. This goes to the wifi card of my desktop and then from there is transferred through ethernet on the outside world

Any ideas on how to proceed?
Regards
Alex

Again, what have you done so far? Wifi works? Does it have an ip address already? Could you connect your phone? What kind of desktop do you have (I assume KDE)?
What will ifconfig -a tell?

I tried to configure wifi over yast but I do not understand the three modes, managed,master and adhoc.
I was able though to set my ip address
