Router into laptop question?

can i plug a router into a laptop with an ethernet cable and then go onto a DIFFERENT laptop and get internet WIRELESSLY from the router thats plugged into the other laptop??thnx


sure why not? that's sort of roundabout though. first off where is the Internet coming from? you have a laptop connected to a wireless router through a cable, then another laptop that is supposed to connect to that laptop through the wireless router, but no connection out to the internet. if the laptop has some other connection out to the internet then you just have to turn on internet connection sharing in the control panel. if it doesn't, then normally you'd plug the router's WAN Port to the internet and both laptops would connect through the router to the internet, using the wireless or the wired connections.
