I was previously using Windows 7 to to share wireless internet to a device without wireless capability over Ethernet, and it worked perfectly.
I've now switched to a Linux machine and am trying to do the same, however the results are extremely shaky. For example, when using the client machine using the shared connection and with Windows sharing, Netflix runs fine, when using Linux to share, Netflix buffers every few minutes.
All Ethernet interfaces are using static addresses.
All I did to setup Linux to act as a gateway in this manner was:
iptables -t nat -A POSTROUTING -o wlan0 -j MASQUERADE sysctl net.ipv4.ip_forward=1
Is there anything else I can do to improve the connection?
