what is the adaptor connected to? – Journeyman Geek Dec 14 '11 at 11:31
LAN connection is connected to modem and nothing connected to Wireless Adapter – Omid Amraei Dec 14 '11 at 12:13
its not even connected to a computer? o0 – Journeyman Geek Dec 14 '11 at 12:25
No, I want to use it as access point or Wi-Fi hotspot – Omid Amraei Dec 14 '11 at 12:31
by adaptor, do you mean an access point (either as a second box attached to your modem) or a USB device connected to something else? – Journeyman Geek Dec 14 '11 at 12:38

I guess you want to share your ADSL connection via the D-Link adapter.
So you access internet with the ADSL link on a computer, and want to turn this computer into a wifi hotspot ?
Please tell more about your installation.
If what I think is right, take a look at :

Yes that's what i really want to do – Omid Amraei Dec 14 '11 at 11:54
Is there any way to do that without any special application ? – Omid Amraei Dec 14 '11 at 12:12
If you want to do it without any special application, it has to be built in your operating system. What is your OS ? – PatrickCUDO Dec 14 '11 at 12:48
Windows Server 2003 – Omid Amraei Dec 14 '11 at 13:19
I don't recommend using a server as a wireless access point if the server has some critical data / usage. But if you want, you can add Wireless Provisioning Services and configure it the way you like. I am not into it so the configuration is up to you. – PatrickCUDO Dec 14 '11 at 13:37
