Question about Computers & Internet
We use the Creative Modem Blaster with Blue tooth Wireless Tech CB5722 for dial-up as in this area we can NOT get high speed internet what so ever! This equipemnt works beautifully on the Microsoft OP systems EXCEPT VISTA!!! We currently purchased a new portable MAC as well as a new portable PC both equiped with wifi AND Bluetooth. the PC has VISTA the MAC op 10+. Obviously we woudl like to use teh bluetooth wireless modem blaster to logonto the interent with these new portable machines, however the VISTA op does not seem to work with the blaster nor the MAC op.
The easiest thing would be for us to access the Creative Blue tooth modem blaster form teh remote machines.. does anyone have the drivers or a solution for this?
OTHERWISE... more complicated and hindering...
We could dedicate one of our older XP PCs as a dial-up server.. equiped as well with a wifi AND bluetooth.
Once we join the network that has this machine on it..
How can we force the VISTA and/or MAC machine to run the XP application AND/OR remotely ask the slave dial-up machine to dial-up the internet?
We also have a D-Link wifi router (currently installed on the MAC, how can the PC also join and see this network?
sounds like your internet access is the slow down, not the router. You don't say if you have DSL or CABLE or what. I'd check there. Make sure you are getting a strong signal. Hook up one system directly, without the router and check the speed.

you will not be able to access from one network to another even if you are on the same workgroup. However, you can setup VPN on both side. the other is to use commercial remote software. i.e.: vnc, mypc, teamviewer, etc.... they don't need anything else, but do require setup on both machine. This is much easier, don't need any permission from the network administrator, or company permission.

i agree with all the above.. it's definately clear as mud how the network is designed and or funtioning. The machines connected to the wireless d-link router.. are they via cat5 inthe wired ports or wireless ? is the server the machine thats connecting to the switch and wiress router and modem? i'd say reset all switches modems routers and machines.. shut them all down.. then fire the cable modem, then the wireless router then the desktop switch then the server, the workstations and the one lonely wireless.. run "ipconfig /all" on all machines and if they aren't all sharing common ips and access, provide the results here for further investigation.

Did you call Comcast and give them the new MAC address of the Motorola SB5101 SURFboard cable modem? I'm surpised it works at all without doing this first. This is the hardware address of your modem so the world can see you, no one in the world has the same MAC address, they are all different. It's on a sticker on the modem.
