Using my Wireless Laptop as a internet connection for my DVD/TV Ethernet connections

Discussion in 'Wireless Internet' started by Yashaan Mavalvala, Jan 31, 2007.

  1. Hi

    I have a wireless laptop that is set up and permanently connected to
    my tv and amp etc. It is used to view downloaded content, videos,
    music etc and played through my TV.

    My TV and HD-DVD Player both have Ethernet sockets for updating their
    firmware. Is there anyway I can connect the devices two my wireless
    laptop (using the laptops Ethernet socket) and then update my firmware
    etc.

    Is it just a matter of connecting them together using a CAT5 Ethernet
    cable or do I need to change a setting on the laptop to allow this to
    happen??

    Thanks

    HT

    Are you sure those are ethernet, and not USB?
    What product model numbers do you have?

    If they are truly Ethernet (which would surprise me), and if they
    support DHCP, then you may be able to get them online by enabling ICS
    (Internet Connection Sharing) in your laptop.
