    Simply Setup a WLAN on Fedora Core


    I have a Fedore Core 6 and need to create my own LAN.

    Currently my computer is connected to a wired LAN (eth0:128.32.186.22) and to a wireless network (eth1:169.229.253.102).

    I need to set up my own Wireless LAN with for instance this IP 10.0.0.1 and let other computers able to connect to this WLAN

    Can you please tell me how or give me a link to a tutorial?

    Here is my settings:

    This is a "How To Set Up A FreeBSD Wireless Access Point" and not for Fedora Core. It is a different setting right?

    Yeah, but it doesn't have to be specific. When you say WLAN, do you mean a wireless network of shared internet and files? The internet bit is OS-Free but files are simple too, I'm not so sure because I haven't touched anything to do with networks in linux, except my ethernet connection to my wireless router, other than that. :s

    Try googling around or even trying yourself.
