Well, I would assume if you have wifi you have some type of wireless router. You would simply just have her computer connect as well, there shouldn't be any reason to go thru your Slackware machine or server.

I think snoopx is trying to make his computer function like a wifi router using an ethernet connection (i.e., there's no wifi router to speak of). I'm not sure if you can do that, but I'm sure one of the gurus can answer that better.

Well, it should, that's what routers do.
