Hello, I have a business and am going to a trade show. I want to figure out how to connect my cedit card terminal machine, via ethernet cable to my laptop so that I can accept credit cards at the show without having to pay for a phone line.

My credit card machine works at my shop by plugging it into the router via Ethernet cable. I have a Sprint wireless card for my Laptop and want to be able to use my laptop as a bridge (so to speak) to the internet.

Please help. Thank you.

Think you can try to enable Internet Connection Sharing on your laptop (with working wireless broadband), after that connect to your credit card terminal machine to share Internet access.
