  Subject: [accesscomp] Turning my Laptop into a Wireless Router

  Okay here's a complicated one, at least for me.  Thought I would ask all my 
friends here because I'm desperate.

  I'm going in a week or so to a location where their will be only a wireless 
internet connection available.  I need to attach my IP phone to the Ethernet 
port of my Windows XP based laptop so I can work.  I thought of bringing my own 
router and trying to configure it as an access point but, I'm not sure I could 
make that work so this seems like the safest way.  I'm sure open to ideas.  

  I have been trying to use internet connection sharing or network bridging 
under XP but, then it won't connect to the wireless network any more, maybe 
because I think you need three adapters, one with internet connection sharing 
enabled, and the other two for the bridge.  Am I wrong about that?  Bridging 
only seems to work when you are using a wired internet connection.  There has 
to be an easy way to accomplish this.  Thanks in advance for any thoughts and 
feel free to write me privately.
