Routing via Windows XP

hhmm.. sometime you may want to have windows XP as gateway instead of linux…

the reason might be varies.. depend on the current situation you’re having .

let’s start.

go to Start > run >

type regedit … press Ok.


something as below should appear..


browse to HKEY_CURRENT_MACHINE]\\ regedit2.PNG

right click at IPEnableRouter -> Modify … change the value to 1.

as this pic.


i think have to reboot your machine after changing those registry before it can be

effective.. else log out and log in back also can work..

hmm.. now connect the U-Mobile or your modem to internet what so ever.


then.. need to setup internet connection sharing for this modem with other network device..

go to Start -> Connect -> All Connection


then..  i think just have to follow this sequence


this will assign the ip of to the selected network device straight away..

but if you want to change also can..

after clicking yes…

go back to the that network device properties..

at tcp/ip .. put in your desired ip.. and netmask.. but leave the gateway as blank..


from other pc.. can use this ip as gateway ip address.

from linux.. system-config-network..

set static ip.. and the ip of windows xp as gateway

    Good Morning ,
    I have a TL-WR1043ND router Ver 1.10 and not able to find Hardware version, as what I understood from other posts that this should be then Hardware version 1.
    Have installed OpenWRT in total 3 files :
    German stock firmware (v3.9.17)
    – attitude_adjustment 12.09-rc2 and
    attitude_adjustment 12.09-rc2 and able to able access my router TL-WRT1043ND

    I guess that it is my age (59) but I a losing it on the configuration and explanation, first the first of all on many images that I have seen on the internet in the part Internet -> Swith VLAN witch is starting with PORT 1 -2-3-4-5-CPU however on my installed OpenWRT it starts with PORT 0-1-2-3-4-CPU so I guess something is already wrong on my side, having said this most images are related to HARDWARE VERSION 1.8

    My main goal is to get connect to UNIFI Malaysia (20MB connection) I know that Unifi provides an IPTV package but to honest I don’t need this IPTV connection at all.

    The bottom line, I like get connected to UNIFI with OPENWRT and I am really begging f someone can assist me in to get connect to Unifi. I know it is labor day (May 1) but will be great full if somebody can assist me.


Anything to add?
