    I just recently installed Bodhi onto my old laptop and I need to know is there any way I can bridge my wlan on my laptop to its ethernet then run it to my desktop so that both computers can have internet access? I've googled this several times and found some sites that kind of show how to do it but I either can't get it to work or its incomplete. So can anyone here help me?

    Hello,

    If I understand you, you want connect yor old laptop to your computer that has a wan connection.

    In this case you should configure your desktop to run as a router, specify a network between desktop and laptop and make the default router in your laptop the interface of your desktop.

    Regards.
