    hello all. please help if you can.

    so the scenario is...
    my source of internet is the dorm wifi.

    the predicament is that...
    i have two computers(vista and xp) connect by lan to the wrt54g
    the vista use wifi to the dorm, xp have no wifi.

    what i would like to do is...
    have file sharing between the two computers
    also have internet access for both using the wrt54g

    keep in mind that the dorm wifi side, i have no further info beside what the network status said.

    i have some idea but not the technical knowledge to get it to work
    - have the wrt54g connect to the wifi as a repeater or access point and the two computer can see each other via the wrt54g
    - have the two computer see each other through the wrt54g and use wifi internet through the vista's connection to the dorm wifi.

    more info:
    -for me to connect to the dorm wifi, i load the browser and type in a login to gain access
    - i tried connecting the lan(router) and wifi at the same time. i get no internet.
    so i set the router to router mode and turn off DHCP.

    last resort i'll get a very basic router with no wan, and have the vista run share internet through the wifi connection.

    thank you all please help!
