Connecting ReplayTV With Wireless Internet and No Cable/DSL Modem

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey everyone, I couldn't find my question in the ReplayTV FAQ. My apartment building has wireless internet installed, so I don't get my internet via phone modem, cable or DSL. Is there a way for my ReplayTV to connect to the Replay network by using an ethernet cable to connect with my computer? I'm not sure how else the ReplayTV can access the wireless internet connection. Thanks!

1. You'll have to leave the laptop / computer on.
2. You'll need a Cross-over Ethernet Cable.
3. You'll need to assign an IP Address to your PC (for the Ethernet LAN Card Only).
4. You'll have to configure your wireless adapter on your laptop / computer to share its Internet Connection.

I leave it to others how to configure the RTV. At a minimum, you'd have to put it on the same subnet as your PC's Ethernet Card. I also guess that you'd have to manually configure the RTV to use your PC as its gateway. Not really sure how hard or difficult it is.

I leave that to others.

In a nutshell, it's possible.

Cheers!

Wouldn't it be simpler to use a gaming adapter or wireless bridge?
