How to share internet connection using ADSL modem to two PCs/NBs

Now, I want to share such internet connection with another one notebook or PC, what should I do then and what other peripherals should I add so that both the PC and notebook are running the internet connection using the same source.

How to connect Satellite 4090XCDT laptop to ADSL?


You computer was set up to use a modem to access the internet.

You computer does not have USB, so you cannot use Wi-Fi.

You need to purchase a 2 x PC Card Type II or 1 x PC Card Type III Ethernet card. Then you can plug a Ethernet cable into the ADSL router.

I have a laptop OS win7. I hav internet over LAN port. My laptop has wifi. How can i share my internet with laptop wifi. i hav a mobile which has wifi. My question is how can i share my internet through...


It sounds to me like you only have a cable/adsl modem bringing in your internet connection. To share your internet with other wifi devices you will need to buy a Wireless router. Be aware you can buy adsl and cable routers depending on what your broadband provider has given you. Take these details into a computer shop who will advise you of the right type of router to buy. Dont buy cheap, go for something like a netgear router.

Reset all again.
Power off the modem, router, and PCs and wait 20 seconds or so.
Then power up the Modem first, then the router, and finally your PCs, wait a couple of minutes and try to connect.

Internet disconnection on hp dv 6500


When the internet connection goes down what does your network and sharing center say the status is? does it says access: local and internet? or does it say access: local only?
do any other pcs have this problem on your network?
if this is the only pc having this issue the best thing to do is contact Vista support while you are still under warranty so they can troubleshoot the issue further... more than likely simply need to update the drivers for the network connections... this is a known issue they have had in the past... its not your ISP if all other pcs are fine... its just one of the lovely side affects of Vista..
GOOD LUCK!!!

Internet connection problem


The address range on your router is set low.. reconfigure it, or pull the plug on it, your cable box/ adsl modem and all your pcs.. wait 1 minute. repower the modem/cable box, then the router, then the pc in question.

I said pull the plug, not turn off the power switch.. pull the plug, hold its ends in your hand, feel the warmth.. goooooood..

Still no luck? find the manual for your router, manually reset IP range.
