How to install a network for a number of PC's?


This answer reffers to a windows based machines. First, a router is needed. Second, each PC must have a network connection. Use cables is order to connect between the computers if they are located close to one another.Then run network cables to the router, set Network Settings / TCP/IP settings to 'acquire an IP address automatically' . This will set up the network allowing you to transfer files and play network based games.

Regarding my laptop connection


you shouldn't need to, though I've run into one or two laptops that only like the s-video if you get that hooked up before you turn the machine on. I don't know if that's universal, it could be as simple as using the Function key and selecting which video output to use. It will usually default to it's own screen. Hope this helps, let me know how it turns out!

How to use cross cable and straight cables in network


ok, i think what you mean is this.  Crossover cable is for connecting 2 computers together without the need for a router.  also called pc-to-pc.  Straight cables need the use of a router or hub to connect 2 computers together.  Hope this helps, if not let me know more info.

Limited connnectivity on a data cable


If you made the cable, I would start with the wire setting in the plugs. When I make cables, this is the biggest mistake that I make (I spend an extra $10 some times in remakes). Then make sure that the correct cabling schema is used for the XBox, I am not sure if it uses the standard T-568-B or T-568-A. This could cause some problems.

Additionally, I would check to see if the IP addressing is set up correctly, but it sounds like the cable is the problem, maybe the cable itself, not the connections.

Against my better judgement, because crimping doesn't work half the time, here's the color code.

A 4-pair Cat-5e or 6 cable has BLUE, ORANGE, GREEN, and BROWN pairs. The ones with the most white are called Tip. In a 568B wiring scheme, they go 54361278.

or, like this

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8

wo ow wg bw wb gw wbr brw


Data is actually carried on pins 1 2 3 and 6.

If you wire the other end of the cable the same way as above, it's called a straight through cable.

If you reverse the orange and green pairs, it's a crossover cable. This is also the pattern for 568A

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8
wg gw wo bw wb ow wbr brw

Getting the wires to untwist and behave is half the fun, that's why we use special plugs when we absolutely have to crimp. Otherwise, we use a jack and patch cord.

Connecting a pc to a laptop


Have checked the IP address both should be in the same class like 192.168.1.1 and 192.168.1.2

after setting the IP address
go to run type ping 192.168.1.1 or 2 each other to ensure they are talking propely.

check the serviceability of crossover cable also.

Cannot "ping" 192.168.1.1 (default gateway)


1) yes, referring to the router's IP address.

2) I determined the IP addresses of all my computers and tried to "ping" them but could not "ping" any of them. I can "ping" the IP address of the computer I am working from but I don't think that helps in TS this situation.

3) I'm wondering if my router is fully set up correctly. Do each of the computers have to be "saved" in the router's settings?
