I have tried using windows internet sharing to my bamt machines but had alot of issues. I would highly recommend buying a dd-wrt capable router (ie linksys wrt54g) and using the 2nd router as a client instead. I see them on craigslist regularly for $20 or so, another advantage is if your one system goes down your whole network doesnt
Thanks for the reply. Initially I used a windows machine as a router but that conked out just a day later so I installed Linux on it and it's been running perfectly since then. Your idea is better since my box is likely drawing down way to much current just as a router! I'll definitely look into that.
