    wlan0 bridged to eth0 to share internet/nfs shares


    hi
    I am using fedora 11 64. I am connecting to my dad's wifi this works good online etc, and was hoping I could feed my wlan0 connection to my ethernet card eth0 then to my router to feed my other wired computers in my house to share the wifi connection and my nfs shares.
    I do not know if this would be called bridged?
    thank you

    Sharing a wifi connection will be slow, but it should work. This is fairly straightforward to do using iptables. I would look for guides on how to set up linux based home router. The basic idea is to enable packet forwarding on your machine and create iptables rules to do NAT for your wired network. I would make sure all the connections are in switch ports and that you don't use the WAN port on the router.

    there are many guides available on the internet, I don't need to write a new one, here is one example: Linux gateway/router - (another) HOWTO

    or you can google them for yourself
