Howdy DiGiTY...

Any reason you can't get a wireless router, and set it up that way?

Bridgeing them isn't going to get you where you want to be. It would be easier to get a Wireless router (you realy don't want to go ICS, too much of a headache)...

the only thing available to me is the switch and the ethernet & wireless adapters. if a bridge isn't gonna do the trick, then what is with the hardware available?

Maaan...I hate ICS (didnt I say that before somewhere else :D )...

Well...

What you will have to do is to set each wireless adapter to ADHoc mode, and get them communicating, talking together, slapping each other on the back, telling good jokes between them, etc....first...

Then you will have to setup the wired connection (haven't seen what OS's are involved yet, so can't tell you the steps involved) for ICS (Internet Connection Sharing :( :down: ), then after that the rest is (crosses fingers) pretty much downhill (need to know the OS's involved)...

You may also have to buy a high gain antenna (you can probably get a router cheaper) for the host pc (the one that is sharing the connection), it's one thing I've seen in these AdHoc mode connections is that they will loose their signal strength...
