    Hi guys, my first post, and I have to say I'm rather green in the area of networking. I'm volunteering at an organisation in india, and we need to set up a wireless network with the ability to share an internet connection.

    I went and got a linksys wrt54gs, along with a few wireless g pci cards for the computers to be linked by wireless. The wireless network itself seems to work, though the main thing we would like is to have our internet connection shared. Sadly, we don't have a modem that is compatible with the linksys' routing functions, but is a cdma fixe wireless phone, which uses the the cellular network to dial into the net. This is connected to our main office pc via a serial cable. We have limited networking experience here, and can't seem to find a way to share this internet connection over the wireless network...

    Is there any way to configure the router so we can use Internet Connection Sharing? All of our computers are using Windows XP Pro....

    Let me know if you need any more information, or if it's simply a lost cause and I need to get a server/new internet connection!
