I currently am connected to the internet behind a Lynksys Wireless-G 2.4 Ghz router. I have a roommate who needs to add his laptop on the LAN behind the same router. He already has a wireless card installed. What settings are required from the router parameters as well as the laptop to allow the 2nd internet connection?

Assuming that:

1. The router is configured for DHCP
2. The computers are configure to obtain an IP address automatically.
3. Any security on the router like WEP is also configured on the workstation. Since you already have one computer working, if this is there you likely know how to set it up.

You should be set to go.
