I have a 5450 with latest firmware OS, and WLAN updates and am trying to get it to connect to my network.
My network is hardwired 100Mb thru a 5 port switch. Internet access is via a dial up account on a machine set up for Internet connection Sharing, therefore it is 192.168.0.1. All machines running Win 2k Pro. The machine that I want to run Media centre on is a laptop with PCMCIA LAN network card.
Can I run two network cards in the same machine? I thought I could. One will be the hardwired LAN card, the other a Belkin 802.11b PCMCIA WLAN card.
The hardwired card is set to obtain IP address automatically from ICS machine.
What setting do I need on the WLAN card, ? ie IP address, DNS server etc.
As well as controlling Girder and Media centre, is it going to be possible to also access the internet thru such a set up?
