Connect to 2 networks at a time
Ok, when it comes to connecting to a network, I am fine with that, but when you throw in a second one I am out of my league. lol
Basically, I moved into a condo with a friend who already has a wireless network setup (802.11g). With my laptop, I have no problem connecting wirelessly to it. But this is where I am stuck. I have an older box that is running Ubuntu and Samba on it. I used to use it as a file server to hold backed up movies, my music, saved documents, pictures and other random stuff that I don't want to keep on my limited sized laptop hard drive. I have mapped it for my laptop so it is just a basic NAS that I can wireless connect to (or used to be able to connect to).
The current network is using a D-Link wireless router. I used to use a Netgear 802.11g router as well. What I am wondering is if it is possible to set up My Netgear router to act as a second wireless network so that I can be connected to both wirelessly, his for the internet, and mine for the NAS? I used to and would like to have my NAS connect to the Netgear router through a wired CAT5 cable and then be connected to the Netgear wirelessly but still be able to be connected to the D-Link for internet services.
Im not sure what to really do. But I want to be able to use his network for the internet, and then have my NAS only open to me. I just have a lot of files from work as well as school on there. I just don't want him to put random crap on there and screw with my method of storage.
Sorry this is long and drawn out but I am a little over my head here and from previous times coming here, you all have your heads on straight and have provided amazing help to me. I hope this will be the same.
