I ISP demands that I use VPN to connect to internet. This is ok for my laptop, but my Squeezebox does not support this.

How do I connect the squeezebox to internet via the wireless NIC on my laptop?

I've tried to do some searching, but honestly, I don't know where to start.

Turn on internet radio proxying in the player's settings, Audio, MP3
streaming method.

Hm, I see. But I think you are one step(at least) ahead of me.

I don't know how to connect it to my laptop. I need to do something with the settings on my computer. Right?

I guess to disable Networkmanager is the first step. And then? iwconfig wlan0 mode ad-hoc?

Just open the slimserver web interface and go to the player settings.

Ok, thanks for taking your time. But I understand what to do with the Squeezebox.

I'm posting this on the Linux/Unix-forum because I don't know how my wireless-settings on my Linux-computer should be.

What do I do with my Linux-computer to allow other devices, such as the Squeezebox, to connect to it?
