Ours is a 2 Mbit/s DSL connection from VSNL TATA connected to a desktop computer. The static IP provided is "configured in the PC LAN card but not in the x8821r+ router". The router is operating in "bridged mode".

Below are the present setup details:

Router: x8821r+
Bridging: enabled
WAN to WAN bridging: enabled
ATM interface: 0
Operation mode: enabled
Encapsulation: 1483 Bridged IP LLC
VPI: 0
VCI: 32
LAN mode: Routing and bridging
LAN side DHCP server: enabled

Desktop PC
PC LAN IP: both the static IP and
No of LAN cards: 1

I'd like to share this connection between the PC and a laptop that has Wi-fi. I am ready to buy a Wi-fi AP/router if required. Someone suggested buying a Dlink DIR 300 wireless router.

Do I need to change the PC's and router's existing configuration and bring in the wireless router? Could someone please tell me the detailed procedure to do all this? Thanks.
