I have a laptop connected to internet via wireless and have a desktop which cannot connect to the wireless and I wished to share internet between the two. Thus, I posted a question on here and was suggested to use network bridge to that.

I did it, it worked. so far so good. Looks like the following

Desktop ( --------> Laptop ( Bridge) --------> Router (

But there is a problem... that is on the Desktop computer the internet stops working after a while (after every 10 mins approx) and I can do nothing. Also, when this happens, I cannot ping my laptop, the router and definitely not After about 2-3 minutes it starts working automatically. It is surprising to me what exactly is happening.

Need help !
