    Setting up a network with a bridged connection


    I have been trying to get my home network setup. I have internet coming into PC1 via a wireless signal coming from a Belkin router. I bridged the connection to a Ethernet connection and from there I am wanting to send it out to 2 - 4 more computers. I have tried it with a linksys switch and another Belkin router but get the same results. PC1 (which I am on now) works great, but the others do not have internet connection. Any help is appreciated.

    you need a router that will capture the wireless signal and sends it through the network. is called a wireless router, for example, can have 4-5 network output for computers. configure and work

    I presume BOTH of the Belkin's are wireless. Please let us know if that is correct. Both of them will need to be paired with each other (or maybe just the repeater/bridge itself; depends on how they do it in the software.) I'd check with the belkin site as they probably have a step-by-step guide on how to do it.
