    My desktop XP is temporarily off-line. It was connected to the Internet via a DSL router, using ethernet cabling. My portable Toshiba Satellite A20, with XP, is currently connected to the Internet through a Netgear router to a satellite internet provider via a dish. this works fine, except when we have snow or ice, which happens often in Canada.

    I would like to connect both the DSL router and the satellite router to the A20, so that I can share printers and other devices with my iPad (on the DSL LAN). i want to avoid any major changes to my configuration parameters, so that I can return to the status quo ante, when my desktop is returned soon.

    Advice would be appreciated.
