    I have a bit of a problem here. I've been trying to figure this out for a couple of hours now, but I can't seem to get it to work.

    Here's my problem:

    My PC is connected to a wireless acces point (internet), using a linksys wireless card (d'oh!). My WRT54G Is connected to my other networkcard with an UTP cable. This cable is connected to the first LAN port of the router.
    Now I want my brothers laptop to be able to connect to the WRT54G router, so it has an internet connection too.
    How the hell do I do that? :halo:

    Your question is a bit confusing, please list the names of the routers or access points and how they are connected. For instance:

    internet comes in goes to a WAP??? connected wirelessly to my computer, and port 1 is connected to my wrt54g wan port etc. Right now your explanation is a little confusing. Keep it detailed but simple and I am sure your question will get answered quickly.

    I'm connecting my computer to an access point outside of my house, so I can't 'touch' it or make changes to it whatsoever.

    I have to pay to get internet from this access point. So what I want to do is to connect the WRT54G to my 2nd network card (non-wifi) and share internet wirelessly with my brothers laptop. So I won't have to pay twice (you can only login once with the code).
    I hope this clarifies my story a bit. So in the end it looks a bit like this:

    access point -> my computer -> WRT54G -> Brothers laptop
