My new computer has a built in wireless card and it also has dual gig ethernet ports. I was wondering if it was possible to connect to a wireless lan and then connect another PC to the motherboard to alow it access to the internet. Any ideas?

With ICS (Internet Connection Sharing) in Windows XP you can. It would be slow though!

There are also a slew of 3rd party software products as well. You could also just get a wireless ethernet bridge or just put a wifi card in the other machine.

Well its going to be running Linux. I already have a D-Link DWL-550. The only problem is there are no linux drivers. I was looking for a wireless adapter on Newegg but I couldnt find anything. Ill have to look again. I dont know why they wouldnt have them.

The DWL's usually work perfectly on Linux
Look for the madwifi drivers on sourceforge.
