If you want to access the internet with two computer, the easiest thing to do is to get a broadband router where the two computer will be connected so they can access the internet at the same time, you can get a Linksys router like this model BEFSR41 or a wireless router so you dont need a cable connected to your computer the model is WRT54G...

Hope that helps..........

It tells me there is a problem with web site and FB isn't responding. I'm on the net already and have my home pages pulled up.


HI Michael,

Looks like corrupted cookies. Try deleting them and then try to access FB. Please follow the steps below:
1. Click Start Menu> All Programs> Accessories> RUN or press Windows Key (the Flag key on bottom of the keyboard) and press R
2. It will open the RUN command, type "%temp%" (without quotes) and hit Enter key
3. It will open the Temp files folder, delete all the files in there and restart the computer.

Now try to access the FB, it should be working now.

Thanks!

How do i net work four computers to the internet


Hi For connecting four computers to the internet,you can use two ways
1. Connect 1 PC to net and then share connectivity 2. Use a router, connect the router with internet and connect all the PC's to the router so that all will enabled with internet
Better go for the second option as it will ensure a more reliable and error free network
Thanks

I have satellite broad band on the host computer with a lap top via belkin.how do I connect the two computers together as a net work sharing printer internet etc?


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

With the indulgence of jmichelsen4, two ways:
  • a router if the satellite modem uses Ethernet port;
  • a hub or crossover cable if the satellite modem uses USB port on the host computer.
Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

The easiest way is to get a multirouter run your net to the router and run all the pc's you want on the net to the router and install software on both pc's for net use and away you go.

Connect two computers together


Hi,

Technically, yes. Both computers should have an Ethernet port (LAN), a crossover networking cable, peer to peer networking using static IP add, and Internet Connection Sharing on the PC with the Wireless Internet Connection. If by chance the PC with the Internet access is already using its Ethernet port, a second NIC could be installed.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

L cannot run 2 compters at tihe or can L run on either one or the other.from the same modem?


  1. If using a dial up modem you would need to network the computers together with ethernet cards and a cross-over cat5e cable and set up shared internet connection. One would be a server and one a client server would have to be on all the time for client to access the net.
  2. If using broadband (DSL or Cable) you will need a router. Wired or Wireless. Connect modem to router, router to computers, re-boot the computers, then reboot the modem and router so the modem can assign IP addresses.

Hi,

Have you tried static IP addresses on the 2 new laptops even if DHCP is enabled?

Additionally, pls try with the WEP, WPA or MAC Filter off/disabled.

Alternately, on the 2 new units, pls try configuring the Wireless LAN Properties Advanced tab to use "ANY" or your SSID.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

What are the step for setting up you computers to a network using a Linksys router. I have a 2 PC's and a laptop that I would linke to net work together. My first computer is connect to the Wireless-B...


Hi Ed, if your using windows you can open network connections & run network setup wizard. Follow the instruction for a home network for the wireless PC's & notebooks. Once the network is setup for all PC's than you can install the printer cd software in the PC's that you want to access the printer. Each PC & notebook will have access to the printer through the network.
The PC that that is connected to the printer needs to be shared.
Open printers and Faxes. Right click once on the printer & left click sharing. Agai follow the instructions.
Lastly,I strongly suggest you setup security for your wireless. If you do not anyone close can tap into your network connection. Follow linksys instruction to setup security. If you run into a problem you can call linksys for free advise from a pro. Their number is listed in the manual.

Good Luck! Take your time.
Have more questions, feel free to ask.
