On a laptop with two adapter:
- a wireless connected to the public internet trough a router AP
- a builtin ethernet NIC connected with a crossover cable to an IP phone
I wish to bridge the two adapters so that the IP phone is issued an
internal IP (192.168.xxx.xx) by the DHCP server on the router and ends up
on-line,connected to the public internet.
Using netsh command I checked that the wireless adapter (Orinoco PCMCIA)
is in promiscuous mode and even usued the forcecompatmode=enable command
just in case.
The bridge does not aquire an IP from the router because as soon as XP
built the bridge, the wireless adapter link to the router an its DHCP
server is lost. What is wrong. I read that it is supposed to work:
Could it be that the Orinoco wireless adapter does not support promiscuous
mode even though it reports that it is enabled? Where could I find if it
does or not?
