I'm trying to configure the rocket stick to work my computer and a wireless router + a couple other computers. What I'd like to do is have the following configuration:
Rogers USB Stick + Computer A ---- Router ------- Computer B
------- Computer C
------- Computer D
Essentially I just want the router to act as a switch. Computers A, B, C, D are plugged into the LAN ports of the router. Computer A has two internet connections: (1) to the Roger's modem and (2) for the router. I've tried setting up internet connection sharing on the Roger's connection (1) and using the LAN address of Computer A as the gateway address for B,C,D. I've turned off DHCP on the router and assigned static IPs for the LAN addresses of A,B,C,D. I've also reconfigured the router to have the following IP adddress: 192.168.0.2. ICS says that A should have 192.168.0.1 as address when ICS is turned on. No luck. Am I missing something ? Should A be plugged into the WAN port? Is there an alternative configuration Any ideas?
I would have the internetsharing setup on the Computer A like you have done. Then I would plug Computer A into the WAN port of the router. I would leave DHCP on on the router and computers B C and D.
You would have to statically set the ipAddress on Computer A's LAN port.. Probably something like 192.168.1.1. Then have the router using the 192.168.0.x range to the internal computers... This should get your internet connection shared.
Unfortunately in this config you will not be able to see computer A from computers BCD but at least you will have internet.
