wlan to lan internet sharing

Asked by nick54 on 2009-11-18

My acer aspire netbook running ubuntu 9.04 can connect to a free wireless internet connection but because surfing the net on a netbook is cumbersome, I wanted to share the internet connection on wired lan to my desktop machine running windows vista. How can I do this?

You can use Firestarter for Internet Sharing Connection http://www.fs-security.com/docs/connection-sharing.php . It's easy to install and configure.

Or you can do it manually after reading this: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/EasyWirelessToWiredConnectionSharing

Good luck.
