Re: Hooking up a second computer
If your HP computer is connected with a wire to the router, you don't need to run or install the setup CD of the router you just need to connect the HP computer to the router with an ethernet cable and restart the HP computer and internet should already be working fine, But if your Hp computer is going to work wirelessly with the router meaning the HP will not be connected with a wire to the router, You just need to connect to the wireless network of your router if your not familiar with that I will advice you to call Linksys tech support so one of their tech can walk you through with that process they are open 24/7 this is the number 800-3267114.........

You hook up with an Ethernet cable, you type in the "Address" of the router, in manual, login, using default name and password, in manual, once logged in toy can then run the "Wizard" this will help you connect. You need to know your Internet Account login and password. Once all setup you save and now you can use it. it is all explained in the manual. It is a few pages so it was not possible to post here.
You will need to check the settings of the router.
You are able to go online when you connect the computer directly to the modem.
Your internet service provider is DSL.
You can try to reconfigure the router.

Try to access the setup page of your router and look for MTU settings. Set it to manual settings and set the size to 1492 then save. You must power cycle the router and the modem. Unplug the power on both for 30 seconds
You must reconfigure the wireless settings on the wireless computer. Go to Network and Sharing Center > Manage Wireless Networks. Now you must delete all the prefered wireless network profile there. If they are all deleted, click on ADD > Click Add A Network in range of this computer > Select the signal from your router and connect. If it asks you for a network key, you should know that, otherwise, contact your router provider to determine what your network key is. That should solve it.
First of all u should ensure that DHCP server is configured for your required number of computers. this problem seems that you have less clients configured in your DHCP server, existing in router configuration.
A wireless router is device where in you can connect 2 or more computers in your home network. It is secured and is capable or providing you wireless connection. You can also get to connect printer wirelessly. Basically theres a lot of stuff you can do with a router depedning what brand it is and model. Let us know if you needed how to set it up. Just lemme know.
Yes, I have pretty much the same setup at home. Wired desktop and wireless laptop. On the back of your wireless router, there should be 4 or 5 wired connections which you can use. You will only have to use the setup disk on one computer. Basically, the setup disk is for the router, not the computers, it simply guides you through the router configuration process. You can also do this manually, the manual for the router will give those instructions as well.
