This spring I shared a broadband connection from a laptop in Mexico by using ICS from the PCI broadband card to the ethernet port. I then used a router as an A/P only. The laptop is underpowered and performance was lousy.
I am wondering if I can use bridging to pass the broadband signal directly to the ethernet and then use the router as a true router? I tried it once quickly and it appeared to not work. Anyone have knowlege of such bridging?
