Windows 7: Connection Sharing

Connection Sharing

I don't know all the behind the scenes stuff about enabling connection sharing. So bare with me.

What I've had to do so far is go to my adapters and enable connection sharing from the sharing tab, on my wireless.. I've got an ethernet cable running to my desktop on the floor. I need the connection to work primarily so I can share my laptop keyboard and cursor with the desktop. What I've been doing for the desktop is sufficing with an xbox controller and xpadder which allows me a cursor, doesn't solve the typing issue.

Anyways, on with it. I bring my laptop to and from campus and I plugin an ethernet while at the campus for access to blocked stuff. Ethernet in my classroom isn't hindered

So if you haven't already figured it.. this disallows me from leaving connection sharing on 24/7 this is an extra hassle having to navigate to and from that area. So obviously a shortcut of sorts is desired here.


This is what I've been trying to find info for so far. I've been searching for netsh commands to configure the wireless connection to share, I've been pulling up useless info. If I can get some sort of script that doesn't require 3rd party software to run, which can enable and disable that particular thing.. or even just reproduce all the necessary footwork for the share to work and reset it as the counter.

My original thinking was netsh would be able to for sure, so I could just make a simple batch file.

So, nobody has any knowledge of such a thing, and any google searches have obviously failed.
