I hope I'm missing something but I've searched everywhere but couldn't find a solution - either homegrown or commercial. I travel a lot and this spent a lot of time in Hotel Rooms. Many of the Hotels only allow one MAC address per account. So I'm looking for something providing the following:

  • Connects to the Hotel's WLAN as CLient
  • Shares this connection with multiple WLAN on private Subnet like an ordinary router (NAT)

Kinda like a WLAN to WLAN Distribution to NAT clients.

Geekbeat had a review of a product that looks to do what you are asking. The D-Link SharePort shares one connection with multiple devices.

You don't mentioned which OS you are using but i give solution for Windows and MacOS:

The general solution is you have to make your laptop as HOTSPOT.

In MacOS try this :

System Preferences-> Sharing -> internet Sharing-> Select the USB Dongle as the source, and Airport Wireless as the Share via.

In Windows:

You can't do it if your windows earlier than Windows7 because they don't included the Virtual WiFi components. But in later version of windows 7(Include win7) you have to download softwares like Virtual router to make your system as HOTSPOT.

I use Connectify Hotspot, and even the free version works great.

Connectify Hotspot is an easy to use software router for Windows that utilizes your PC’s built in Wi-Fi card to wirelessly share any available Internet connection with friends, co-workers, and mobile devices.
