I have a new hp desktop running vista, which connects fine to the net when using the ethernet cable from the modem. I would however prefer to run the ethernet cable to a router, and when I try to use the usb cable connection to the computer it will not connect to the net.Even after running the full installation wizard it says unable to connect...check connections etc. Again it is fine using the ethernet connection.

When you use USB for networking the "Network" it is on is 10.10.0.1 or similar, Now the Ethernet is 22.214.171.124 or similar. You simply MUST enter the correct address if you wish to change anything. Use the Connect to the Internet wizard and ensure you choose correct net, address. & if you have two Nic's Ethernet & USB, you must make sure you choose right one too.
power down cable modem, router, and computer. Connect ethernet cable from modem to router/ and connect ethernet cable from router to PC. Power up cable modem first, after modem shows connectivity, plug in router. After router shows internet connectivity, start computer. Be sure that you LAN card operable
you could try getting a wifi adapter and creating an access point, you can connect that way if your ps3 has wifi I have a laptop with windows XP Pro and have been trying that my desktop PC with Vista Home can see it. MY Components: -Desktop PC with Vista Home (Main PC, connected to Internet with Ethernet to a Linksys Wireless Router B and G). -Get internet thru cable TV (broadband),from this cable modem plugs to router and from router to PC Vista(desktop) -Linksys Wireless G/B Router -G-Card for my Laptop Windows XP Pro and -Playstation 3 capable of sharing info and use printer
At the moment all of them have internet w different IP's (000.000.0.001, 000.000.0.002,etc.). What I want to achieve is that I can use the Printer that is connected via USB to my PC Vista (desktop) and share files. Right now the only thing been able to do is that my PC Vista see my Laptop but Can't find my PC on my laptop. Anybody, Help? -When I turn On my media sharing in my PS3, my internet on Laptop loses it while PS3 search and find,then, because laptop lost wireless,the PS3 looses the laptop and I get wireless back. I knowis a stupid setting but tired of workin back n forth. Thanks
The easiest solution would be to use an ethernet connection. A second problem is probably on most cable modems you can either use a USB connection OR an ethernet connection you cannoot use both at the same time.
Huh? You installed Vista through your Virgin Cable Modem? What on earth does that mean?
Are you trying to ask "How do I install my Belkin Wireless G Router?"
If that is the actual question, here is the answer:
1) Unplug your cable modem from your computer. 2) Plug the cable modem into the router using a Ethernet Cable. 3) Plug the router into the computer using another Ethernet Cable. 4) Plug in the power supply for the cable modem and then the router.
(If your cable modem is ONLY USB, and doesn't have a spot to plug in a Ethernet Cable, you'll have to call Virgin and replace the modem with a model that does)
Once everything is up and running, you should be on the internet as soon as the computer starts.
(You may want to log into the router and disable the "Wireless" settings if you aren't using them to stop others from gaining entry to your network)
OK. First of all you do not need a special or seperate driver for the Ethernet port. Its factory loaded with your OS.
All you need to do is plug the Ethernet cable into the LAN port on your HP Desktop and then into the LAN port (not the WAN port) of your cable modem.
The second thing is if its only a cable modem, then I suggest you proceed with caution as there is NO built-in firewall on a cable modem. Yes you will get on the net, but you are likely to be attacked with virus the moment you connect. I suggest you check very carefully whether the cable modem (if that's what it is) does/does not have a firewall as you would be very unwise connecting up like that.
Next, forget USB connection to the router/cable modem. That technolgy we've moved on from.. Your Vista shodul be 'plug n play' adn should configure the router for you. obviously that bit isn't so slick on yours.
