Re: How to bridge 3 computers together?
said by SteveJobs:Open the "Network Connections" window. When you see the icons for the two network adaptors, hold the shift key on the keyboard and click each of them so they are highlighted. Right click with the mouse and select the option that says "Bridge Connections".
I have a Linkeys network adaptor, that connects via USB. I want to plug that into a computer, then via Ethernet crossover cable plug in in to computer 2, then run from computer 2 to 3.
Now that computer will bridge the connections together and see them both as a single IP address. The computer that you have connected to it by cable will now obtain service from the wireless router via the bridged computer's Wi-Fi dongle. This may require a cross-over cable ( 100% perfectly safe ) or a network switch between the two computers.
