I have a problem with an IP telephone which I am trying to connect. I am traveling a lot in connection with my work, and as such, I am staying quite a bit of my time at hotels. Those hotels normally offer WiFi internet connections. I am taking with me a notebook, which has built-in WiFi network adapter, so there is no problem getting on the Internet from the PC. My PC gets its IP address automatically via DHCP. However, my IP telephone adapter requires a network cable for the connection.
As the PC also has a connector for a network cable, I would like the IP adapter to connect to that. This means that the route from the Internet to the IP adapter and vice versa goes through the PC. However, whatever I try, the IP adapter does not seem to get connected.
What can be wrong, and how should I do?
Thank you in advance.
