Use eee pc as router?

125 New Member
I have a ASUS eee Pc (the linux version) that have access to wireless Internet.

Can I somehow connect a network cable to the eee pc to give Internet access to an other computer? (a windows xp computer). So it acts as a router or something like that?

As the eeePC has a standard ethernet port, you should be able to bridge the network. A quick google search gave me this manual, but I have not read all of it. It should be OK though.

Note that this will mean a considerable amount of work, including possibly recompiling the kernel. It's not difficult, but don't imagine something like "plug and play".

What exactly do you mean, you "can't run ifconfig in [your] terminal"? Do you mean, you don't know how to or does it give you an error?

I hope that works for you, if you choose to use it. :-)

Gives me an error, something like this:

bash: ifconfig: not found

and the same with ifconfig eth0, ifconfig ath0, ifconfig wlan0
and i have net-tools with ifconfig

but i can't use it in the shell

edit: ops, needed to be in a root shell lol

Hehe, reminds me of an old saying: "What to do when having Problems: In Windows, reboot. In Linux, be root." ^^

So basically my software is listening to IP address but the external connection is trying to connect to xx.xx.xx.xx on the internet which in concept...

Today something weird happened: I bought myself a new wireless router for home, got it set up, and everything was great. Browsing, email, even Shareaza p2p.

Not all menu options though, only the ones requiring postback. Hyperlink
