The router in my house is clear across the building from my room, which is on the other side. Because of this, I have problems connecting wireless devices to the internet from my room. For this reason, I decided to use a Linksys wireless USB adapter I have as an access point.
I bridged my LAN connection (which my desktop is connected to the router through) to the wireless adapter and made it an ad hoc network, and it seemed to have worked in turning it into an access point. However, now my PC is trying to use the wireless adapter to connect wirelessly to my router, rather than use its hardwired LAN connection, resulting in barely any signal and the inability to get past a few webpages online.
So basically, this is what I want to do.
I would like to know if it's possible to have the wireless USB adapter to ONLY act as an access point (through using my computer's LAN connection to receive its internet connection to the router) and to NOT act as a wireless card, trying to connect my PC to the router wirelessly. To make my computer use its hardwired LAN connection again, I have to unplug the wireless USB device.
