Sharing a connection with wired and wireless computers

I cannot get on line on my wired computer if I hook up the way the directions tell me. I have called Belkin and they say I have it connected correctly but I have to bypass the router to make connection on my wired computer. What am I doing wrong?

I just have a question, do you have an internet connection when your computer connected to your modem(the device provided by your Internet Service Provider)? Possible that the Belkin not working is that maybe you don't have internet from ypur ISP.

I suggest you to connect your computer first to the modem, turn off the pc and afterwards the modem, after 2 minutes, turn on the modem first, when all lights stable, turn on the pc and check if you can go online. If not, better contact your ISP first for them to check the connection. If everything working fine with your ISP. Reply to this post again and provide the following information.

Your ISP?
Brand of the Modem?
Brand of the Belkin Router?
Type of Connection you have form ISP, DSL or CABLE?
If DSL, please make sure that you have a username and password from your ISP?
How many computers do you have?
What is the Windows Version your using or the Operating System?

Thanks.

I do not know what type of cable and hoe to hook to pc


Most modern computers have a Network Interface Card (NIC) that used an industry standard RJ45 network jack (8 wire connection similar to a telephone RJ11 connector)
Most people now have broadband service (Cable Modem or DSL Modem) that has RJ45 connections. you also may have a Router between the computer and the Modem to share that internet connection with other computers. The router will also have RJ45 connections. Routers can also be wireless, and you can connect via 802.11 A/B/G/N wireless connection if your computer has an 802.11 standard wireless card.
So, once you detail the brand and model computer and the type fo network conenction/equipment you have, I can give more detailed answers.

How Can One Cable Modem Work With Two Wireless Routers? By Terry Stockdale Leave a Comment In How to Fry a Wireless Router or Two, I wrote about my brother's experience frying a pair of wireless modems in a lightning storm. Last week, I talked about what had happened, why it happened, and what he could do to prevent the problem in the future (this was the third set of routers, plus he lost a computer motherboard in that storm).
This week, we'll look at his network layout, and why he could not get the network to set up properly.
To summarize the situation, he has an office an a shop, with computers on his network in both locations. Some connect via wired connections (Ethernet), while others use wireless connections. His Internet cable comes into the office first.
In the past, he first used Linksys wireless routers. Then DLinks. This time, he chose Belkin wireless routers.
The incoming cable (standard cable-company RG6 coaxial cable) connects to the cable modem.
Then, the cable modem connects to the WAN (wide area network "Internet") connection on the router.
The local wired ports on the router provide connections for two wired computers. Notebooks connect via wireless connections. Finally, one wired connection on the router is used to connect an Ethernet cable that runs 250 feed to the office from the shop.
That cable was the lightning problem, as it runs outside in a conduit just a little bit underground. Effectively, he's got a 250 foot antenna looking for the electromagnetic pulse from a lightning strike. Most of us don't worry about that because our equipment is so well grounded in the house, plus the Ethernet cables we use are much shorter lines. Even if we have underground cable company lines running from their switch boxes to our houses, those lines are usually only exposed about 40 to 50 feet before they enter the dwellings.
Back to the situation. When he hooked up his replacement routers, the router at the shop immediately worked. Not so, on the router in the office. The Ethernet light and the Activity light just poounded away, blinking and blinking rapidly. But, nothing connecting to the router could get to the Internet.
If they connected a computer directly to the Ethernet cable in the office, without running it into the router first, it worked just fine. But, with the router in place, it didn't work.
The problem was the way he connected the two routers. The problem is that there is no Out Of The Box connection that will work reliably. At least one thing, usually two, has/have to be tweaked one way or another.
As one might guess, the easiest way to connect would be to connect one router's WAN connector to the cable modem, using Ethernet cable, and then use Ethernet cable to connect one of the Local Area Network (LAN) connectors on that router ot the WAN router on the other computer.
There is a problem with this setup, but it's easily solved. First, if you're using identical wireless routers, as he was, the wireless routers are both trying to use the same IP Address range and subnet mask for their local area networks.
That works fine for the first router, which is connected to cable modem. On the cable modem side, it gets an IP address on the Internet Service Provider's network - often an actual Internet address and not just a private network address. On the local area network, it assigns the IP address range specified in its setup menu. This often varies by manufacturer. In the case of Linksys, this is 192.168.1.x. In the case of the Belkin routers he bought, it was 192.168.2.x.
The problem occurs at the second router. On it's WAN side, it sees a 192.168.2.x network - but it's default setting tells it to give 192.168.2.x addresses on it's local area network side, too. In other words - it's confused. It doesn't know where to find the Internet because both networks are assigned the same addresses.
The solution was to disconnect the second router's WAN/Internet cable, connect to it via a wired computer, and tell the second router to use a different IP address range. We chose 192.168.3.x.
We hooked up the Ethernet cable to the Internet/WAN side of the router again. The router started working fine, normal light blinks for activity, no more confusion. The computers could get to the Internet just fine.
Problem solved.
That solved the Internet connection problem. However, no computers in the office would be able to share files or printers with the shop, nor would computers in the shop be able to share with the office. That was both acceptable and intended, in this case.
It could be done; however, that would require a different configuration on the routers and connections.

From your description, you appeared to have to have set up the printer correctly to print over your internet.
Can you see the remote computer from the main computer and the remote computer from the main computer?
Are both computers in the same workgroup or network name?

If you are using the wireless router then you will not use the Ad-hoc mode.
You aloso don't need to share the internet on the modem.
make sure that if you conecnt the computer directly to the modem, it goes on line.
If it is on line then you can connect the modem to the router and computer to the router.
open the setup page and change the settings of the router.
once ytou setup the router then you should be able to go on line on all the computer.
You just need to connect to the network on other computers.

Can i hook my printer to this router Linksys wireless-g 2.4ghz


You want to connect a printer to the network.
If you have Ethernet port on the printer then you can connect it to the router with the ethernet cable. IF it is wireless printer then you will need to connect to the wireless network on the printer. In both the cases you will need to set up your printer as a network printer. If you contact the manufacturer of the printer they will tell you how to do it.
If you do not have ethernet port on the printer and it has only USB port and it is not a wireless printer then you will need a print server. You can purchase a wireless print server and you can set it up so that all the computers will be able to print onthe same printer.
If you have only the USB port and you don't want to use print server, then you can connect your printer to one of your computer. Enable File and printer sharing on all the computer. If you go to microsoft.com and search for file and printer sharing, you will get steps to enable file and printer sharing.
If you want to check the wireless settings of the router, you will need to open the set up page of the router .

I checked my firewall. All cords are connected properly. The same


When using a router with your internet connection (cable, dsl modem etc.) hooked directly to the routers data port it will use the roughter's dhcp to assign ip addresses to other computer on the network. If you have your internet connection hooked directly to a computer and are using internet connect sharing then you must disable the dhcp service on the roughter because the internet connect sharing has its own dhcp and it will assign all the ip addresses. to get into the roughter's setup you open a browser (internet explorer, mozilla etc.) and type 192.168.1.1

Have two computers but only one will get internet access


The tech is right, you can only have 1 modem on your residential line. The 2-wire router/modem should
have 4 ports in back to share with other computers AND a wireless signal too. You can run an
ethernet cable to your bedroom or get an adapter (either USB or PCI card) to connect to your router and
share the modem. If you go wireless, the 2-wire router is by default an encrypted signal. The password
is on the sticker, usually all numbers. Look at manual for changing configuration.

Did you try to check if the cord is properly connected to the router? Check if you can connect to another LAN port. If the router is working on the another computer it means that there is something on part of your computer that is not working properly, Check also the Ethernet cable if working properly? or try to use another Ethernet cable to connect with the computer.
