I have a server with Ubuntu 12.04 which is accessing internet (through crossover cable) with the help of network shared by my laptop(with VISTA) connected to wifi of my home. So my laptop has two ip addresses, one is of wireless network and other is acting as a router address for my server to connect to. Server is able to access the internet and the pair is working fine.
Now, I want to connect other laptops (which are sharing the same wifi of my home) to my server. But when I ping server's ip or my laptop's router's ip, I get 'request timed out'.
How can I wirelessly connect other laptops to the network created by my Windows laptop? Do I need to do bridging between both the networks of my first laptop?
