    Default Windows to Linux Ethernet Bridge

    Ok well as the title says i have a pretty complicated question.

    Basically here is what I want todo:
    I recieve the internet from my service provider it comes into my house and then goes through my wireless router up to my home computer that I use everyday(it runs windows) but now I have acquired a new computer and installed backtrack on it, I want to allow it to use the same internet that my windows computer uses through a network bridge, is this possible?

    Lemme Draw something:

    INTERNET -------- ROUTER ----(Wireless)---- HOME PC (WINDOWS) ----(WIRE)---- WORKSTATION (LINUX)

    So i hope my drawing helps

    Thanks for any help

    sure but that is complex and not really what this fourm is here to solve. google the following phrase...
    internet connection sharing

    ideally you want to get a firewall or something that can NAT your public ISP address if you have issues with your ISP and multiple MAC address on the WAN then just spoof the MAC address of your Windows PC on the firewall

    so to help with your ASCII art picture...

    ISP---(wire)----FIrewall---whatever,media,you,want----what,ever,os,you,want

    vendors that make this are ...linksys dlink netgear smc ..etc....etc..

    Why not just connect the Linux PC to the router? Does the router have a wired connection, or does the Linux PC have a wireless card? If not maybe you should upgrade one or the other.

    If not just use ICS as suggested above.
