I've added an asus Wl-138G WLAN card to my Desktop PC, which is the gateway PC for my Internet connection. The Desktop also has another LAN port which I had been using to connect the laptop to.(I've disabled this LAN for the time being) I'm trying to connect my laptop wirelessly to my desktop, giving my laptop full file/print sharing and internet access. I hope to set up the WL-138G card in ad-hoc mode (although I'm having problems configuring the card, as it seems determined to activate ICS!!).
I'm struggling with the Traffic Policy configuration of KWF, as I can't seem to add the Wireless Card Interface into my rules. In theory, what should I be doing to allow unrestricted access between the laptop and Firewall? I am able to add any source/destination *except* for anything related to the wireless interface! I ran through the Rules Wizard and it didn't add any 'Local Traffic' rules, which I think it should have. Does that mean that the firewall doesn't recognize any connected network interfaces - including the wireless interface?
I was planning to assign the Wireless interface on the Desktop manually assigned IP (192.168.1.1), Sub (255.255.255.0) Gateway - Automatic.
On the laptop, I have assigned the IP as 192.168.1.2, Sub 255.255.255.0 and gateway of 192.168.1.1 - does that sound right?
this really is as far from plug and play as I can imagine!! if there's anything else I have missed please let me know, I'm pretty new to networking.
