How to Set Up a Bridge Between the LAN & a Wireless Network

How to Set Up a Bridge Between the LAN & a Wireless Network : A local area network, commonly called a LAN, refers to two or more computers connected via Ethernet cable. If one of those computers also connects to the Internet via a wireless network, you can create a network bridge to allow other computers on the LAN to connect to the same wireless network. So even if some computers on the LAN do not have wireless cards, they can still receive the Internet through the network bridge.

How to set up your home wireless network

The following section has been taken from the link mentioned above. This belongs to Microsoft’s data.

  • What you’ll need to set up your wireless network.
  • A wireless router, a DSL modem, or a cable modem with built-in wireless networking support
    The router converts the signals coming across your Internet connection into a wireless broadcast, sort of like a cordless phone base station. Newer DSL and cable modems come with integrated wireless networking capability and are called modem routers. If the modem router you received or purchased from your ISP already has wireless capability built in, you do not need to purchase a separate wireless router. Just follow the instructions provided by your ISP for activating your wireless connection.
  • If you do need to purchase a wireless router, be sure that you buy a wireless router and not a wireless access point. The Linksys router is a popular router for wireless networks because it’s simple to set up. There are many routers to choose from, for example:
  • While you’re looking for a wireless router or other wireless equipment in stores or on the Internet, you might notice that you can choose equipment that supports four different wireless networking technologies: 802.11a, 802.11b, 802.11g, and 802.11n. We recommend 802.11g (Wireless-G) or 802.11n (Wireless-N) because they offer excellent performance and are compatible with almost everything.

NOTE: If you do not want to buy a wireless router or if you want to connect computers or devices temporarily for a specific purpose, like sharing devices or games, you can set up a temporary wireless network without a router. This is called an ad hoc network.

Set up an ad hoc network:

After you have everything you need, follow these five steps to set up your wireless network.
1. Connect to the Internet

Make sure that your Internet connection and your DSL or cable modem are working. Your wireless network depends on this connection.
2. Connect your wireless router

These are the steps for connecting a stand-alone wireless router to your DSL modem or cable modem. If you have a modem router, follow your ISP’s instructions for connecting your network.

Since you’ll be temporarily disconnected from the Internet, print these instructions before you go any further.

First, locate your cable modem or DSL modem and unplug it to turn it off.

Next, connect your wireless router to your modem. Your modem should stay connected directly to the Internet. Later, after you’ve hooked everything up, your computer will wirelessly connect to your router, and the router will send communications through your modem to the Internet.
