bridge a wired and wireless network?

pavlos's picture

I have an existing wired network 192.168.1.* and would like to add a wireless router as 192.168.5.* That way, my wired systems work on the dot 1 subnet and the wireless systems would work on the dot 5 subnet.

Do I need to setup a bridge per your article?


More than Ethernet?

I have a TokenRing network running at my house and would like to "Bridge" the Ethernet Internet router/TokenRing network divide.
Will this work as detailed in the article?
Using a TokenRing & Ethernet adapter in stead of Ethernet/Ethernet.

Why are you using tokenring? I haven't seen a tokenring network since '89 (though am still a proud owner of a token ring device from my old HP Vectra 286).
