I’m an ultra-newbie to wireless. Yeah, I know I’m supposed to search and everything before asking, but they all use terms I have no clue what they are talking about. I tried searching, but I’m not even sure what to search for now.
Let me explain what I want and what I have, and could anyone tell me if it’s even possible to do.
I have two computers at home, one desktop and one laptop. I only have one “internet connection” (i.e. I don’t have a router and I connect to the internet using a LAN cable that goes from the wall to my computer)
My desktop ALSO has a wireless card. It’s a ATHEROS AR5413. It has a little antenna coming out. openSuse does detect it and I can configure it and so on. If there was wireless where I live, I think I could connect to the internet using it (but I haven’t tested it though :)).
What I want to do is to connect my laptop using wireless to my computer, and use that to connect to the internet from the laptop.
Is that even possible? I mean, I’m thinking maybe there are such things as “wireless out” and “wireless in” types of cards. I don’t know.
I really appreciate it!
