Howdy this is my first post here,
I am a network novice, I have a desktop PC on an oil rig this is set up for internet access.
Most pc's are configured here not to have internet access but being a senior engineer I have this on a desktop PC (Windows XP) in my office.
I have added an airport express (bridge mode via a spare LAN port) to connect to the network, this was successful however joining the wifi via my mac or ipod i have the same access rights as any other pc / laptop on the rig but can access network drives.
Is there a way to configure my mac to connect to my "personal" network and have internet access to get emails etc.
The techy is onshore for a few months so I am at a loss (hammer and spanners no good for this job).
I believe they use a static IP adress (possibly
to allow my desktop internet and email access.
Could I perhaps put my airport between my desktop and LAN port and configure it that way...... i have no idea
Hope you can help
