    Hi. Can someone plese help me with this. I would like to take and existing web connection thats on a laptop and send it to a new Netgear wireless modem providing an internet connection for devices out of the wifi modem. My original connection is from a DSL modem and is connected via wifi to my laptop. Here is what i tried so far: The router i want to use now is connected to my laptop via Ethernet cable and goes into the Wan port of the router. First i simply turned on sharing on my existing wifi connection and the internet icon on the router is green but when i go to status of the router it says no web connection and devices such as an ipod don't receive any internet. Next i tried to bridge the connection but that did not work either even though my laptop showed that they were bridged.

    Please help as i have spent 8 hours on this already.

    Thanks in advance

    Is "a new Netgear wireless modem" the same device as "The router i want to use now"? If so, I suggest ...

    JohnWill's procedure (Aug. 30, 2008) for configuring a secondary router as a switch and, optionally, wireless access point follows.

    Connecting two (or more) SOHO broadband routers together.

    Note: The "primary" router can be an actual router, a software gateway like Microsoft Internet Connection Sharing, or a server connection that has the capability to supply more than one IP address using DHCP server capability. No changes are made to the primary "router" configuration.

    Configure the IP address of the secondary router(s) to be in the same subnet as the primary router, but out of the range of the DHCP server in the primary router. For instance DHCP server addresses 192.168.0.2 through 192.168.0.100, I'd assign the secondary router 192.168.0.254 as it's IP address, 192.168.0.253 for another router, etc.

    Note: Do this first, as you will have to reboot the computer to connect to the router again for the remaining changes.

    Disable the DHCP server in the secondary router.

    Setup the wireless section just the way you would if it was the primary router, channels, encryption, etc.

    Connect from the primary router's LAN port to one of the LAN ports on the secondary router. If there is no uplink port and neither of the routers have auto-sensing ports, use a cross-over cable. [You will not need a cross-over cable if one of the "routers" is a computer.] Leave the WAN port unconnected!

    This procedure bypasses the routing function (NAT layer) and configures the router as a switch (or wireless access point for wireless routers).

    For reference, here's a link to a Typical example config using a Netgear router

    Thanks for that. I actually saw that answer a few times, Let me clarify a bit. I have a DSL Modem from the phone company giving
    me internet and im connected to that wirelessly with my notebook. I now have my laptops Ethernet port connected to a simple Netgear wifi router that i would like to feed internet into. There are 4 Lan ports on the router and i need to plug some internet phones into it. I am using an ipod touch to detect whether or not there is internet coming in or not. So far the bridge method dosnt work. Nor does the share method. An issue i keep having is that when i do an 'ipconfig' the secong router has no default gateway address. Unless i reset the the router. But as soon as i try to bridge or share, the default gateway gets nocked off again.

    Hope this was a drop clearer.
    Thanks

    For the laptop please show the following for ICS and then for the bridge ...

    Open a (black) Command Prompt window:
    Hold the Windows logo key and press r; in the Run box type cmd and click on OK.

    Type the following command:

    IPCONFIG /ALL

    [Note that there is no space between the slash and ALL.]

    Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter.
    Paste the results in a message here.

    If necessary use a text file and removable media to copy the results to a computer with internet access.

    I think that you accidentally posted the ICS one again instead of the bridged instance.

    The ICS one should work as far as I can see. The only thing that I can think of is possibly a firewall or security suite on the laptop that is not configured to allow ICS.

    Sometimes that just irritates them and makes them more ornery. Which firewall?

    That bridge should also be working as far as I can tell.
