Can I use the same wireless network card for receiving and sharing internet?

Haval Abdulkarim November 22, 2012

I am receiving my Internet connection via wireless using PPPOE connection. Is it possible to share this connection using the same wireless card to other devices?

    You can use your wireless network card to connect to the internet, and then use your laptop wireless for example to share internet! But you can't use the card itself to share internet!

    You will need two cards one for coming in. And a second for going out on a separate connection

      ha14: Connectify couldn't solve my problem since I am using PPPOE connection for Internet user authontication. When I use Connectify to share internet, it disconnects my Internet. Thanks

        same problem mentioned here

        1) clock, right click and select Open Network and Sharing Center and further down the page left click
        on Set up a new connection or network > Connect to the Internet > Next > Create a new connection

        > Broadband (PPPoE) where you key in the ISP's credentials then save the connection.

        2. Again open Open Network and Sharing Center where from the left menu choose Change adapter

        settings > right click to the new PPPoE connection > Properties > left click on the Sharing tab and

        tick on Allow other network users to connect through this computer's Internet connection.

        3. From Open Network and Sharing Center left click on Set up a new connection or network and from

        the new opened window left click on Set up a wireless ad hoc (computer-to-computer) network >

        click Next where in this new window you key in the settings details for the new so called Wireless

        router hosted on the PC in question.

          ha14: Thanks for your effort. I have already done step 1, 2 and I did step 3. The problem still remain. Now, I think their is no solution for this problem because windows doesn't allow to connect to two wireless networks at the same time.

          Watch this photo,

          In conclusion:
          The same wireless network card couldn't be used for both receiving and sharing internet at the same time using PPPOE connection.

          Thanks for everyone

    I think you cannot do that using the same wireless card.But you can share it through a LAN cable.
