Constant Disconnects W/ Bridged Connection

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hey all, I'm currently in a hotel on vacation, and the hotel I'm staying at does not have any wired connection ports that I can use to connect my computer. I am using the wifi (Which is half decent, no real lag in vidya gaems) on my laptop and then connecting my computer to the laptop, and creating a bridged connection. The only problem with this is that while the wireless connection on the laptop never wavers, the wired connection constantly disconnects every once in a while.

It's an annoying circumstance because when playing League of Legends I will sometimes get disconnected from League, but still be connected to a VoIP program (Mumble) and sometimes I will get disconnected from VoIP but still be able to play on League Of Legends. It is fairly constant when playing League of Legends, but still occurs when just browsing the internet. Lastly, my drivers ARE updated. Any help is appreciated.

Edit: To add to the hotels wifi, it uses a system where you are given a coupon code, and upon first connecting to the Internet you are brought to their AT&T website where you input the code, using just the laptop I only ever had to input the code once, but for some reason after bridging the connection, using the wired computer it'll ask me to input the code several times at random, as if I'm using a different device.

sounds like its not recognizing the pc as the same mac address. It keeps getting a signal from 2 PCs within the same IP. Which is confusing there security system. You probably wont be able to get around this due to there security system. Best bet would be to buy a wireless antenna for the PC. They are pretty cheap:

but if you wanna go all out and get a good connection:

or if you REALLY wanna go all out:

Use ICS instead.
By just using bridging you are advertising two MACs and obtaining two IPs.

ICS will tuck everything behind the wifi adapter.
