Problem using Wa1003A and Tew 432 brp to share my internet


lan wires are the same. lan wires used to connect your computer to your modem can also be used to connect your Wa1003A adsl router and TEW 432 brp.

you just got some things mixed up.

1. you should set your Wa1003A adsl router to bridge mode. At this point, it will just be "pass through" device and will not be the one who will ask for IP adds from your ISP.

2. configure your TEW 432 brp with your pppoe username and password. Your TEW 432 brp will now ask the network for the IP address to that it can connect to your ISP.

3. leave your lan wires the same.

2 Eth Cards one for Internet & one for LAN


First of all, I would really recommend you to buy a Cable/DSL router. It is quite cheap, usualy more secure, much easier to configure and troubleshoot. Also, it does not require to have one PC up and running all the time, hense saving energy. Do you know that a PC running 24/7 may cost between 60$ and 100$ in electricity annually? This is more than the cost of a basic router!

But, since your question is about sharing your Internet connection with a PC, here are some guidelines. I will assume here that you are using Windows XP.

On PC1:
1. Connect the modem to Eth0 in the PC. Do not connect anything in the USB port of the modem.
2. Make sure that the link lights are lit both side. If they are not, you may need a cross-over cable (this is usualy not the case)
3. Configure Eth0 to get IP address DNS automatically
4. Disable (uncheck) all protocols except TCP/IP on Eth0.
5. Run the Network Setup Wizard (Start > All Programs > Accessories > Communications > Network Setup Wizard) and follow the steps.

On PC2:
Simply run the Network Setup Wizard (Start > All Programs > Accessories > Communications > Network Setup Wizard) and follow the steps. Specify and you Internet connection is through a Home or LAN network.

That should do it.

Ef3116 has different up and down speed.


PC1 may have a defective NIC card. Also, verify that PC1's NIC card is using an up-to-date driver and that it's interface speed and duplex settings are set to auto-negotiate.

You need to go to control panel>network set up wizard on the pc which has the internet connection and when you go through the wizard amongst prompts select, allow other computers to connect through this computer and then finish off the wizard. On the other computer you do the same but, on this one select this computer connects via another computer on the network and again finish off the wizard.
