I am using windows XP in my Toshiba laptop sattellie Series. I am unable to make any new connection to connect to Internet.


That is because the L300 does not support XP.
If you reinstall Vista, all will be well again.
XP is no longer supported even by Microsoft as it is over 10 years old and now obsolete.
Hope that helps.

Works with xp computer but cannot get my new vista premium computer to recognise it . I've tried cmd/ipconfig etc but no joy


Turn the modem off.
Turn the modem on.
Try: IPCONFIG /RENEW
to get an IP-address.

Does your Internet Service Provider require you to "register" each computer that you connect to the modem? Obviously, the new computer has a different Ethernet adapter than the old computer.
Thus, the ISP may be allowing _only_ the old Ethernet adapter to be used -- until you contact your ISP.

DHG535-2 and LAN switch issue


It sounds like the LInksys that they replaced was also a router. A router will route packets to multiple pc's that are connected to it. The cable modem just sees the router as 1 pc. When you use a switch, the cable modem will see all of your PC's. and Comcast just allows 1 pc. You will need to buy a router to use more than 1 PC which will be cheaper than using Comcasts Home Networking service which will network up to 4 pcs

A router is basically a mini-computer that splits up one internet connections to 4 (or whatever # of ports you have).

Basic Connections to a router:
A Router requires a internet connections, so your broadband modem must connect to the WAN port (theres only one) of the router DIRECTLY. Then Ethernet cables go from the router to the computers on the LAN ports. Don't do something weird like connecting your internet to your computer then your computer to the routers WAN port, it'll most likely mess up.

Once you have connected your router like this, it should work.

If your modem only has a usb port, I have no idea how to make that work out. Sorry. Try getting a new modem from your ISP, or check if your modem does have a ethernet port, if it does just connnect that to the routers wan port.

Also computers should not interconnect with each other with use of a router. Thats what the router is for. Everything gets connected and split up at the router, nothing connects to anything else but the router, basically.

Cannot connect to the internet


Are you running the setup disc provided by comcast to get your email setup?

If you are , you do not really need that disc as it provides useless and often outdated junk on the disc. You should be able to surf the internet by plugging in your Ethernet Cord into the laptop with no problem.

On the issue of the Comcast user name and password, this was originally used at the original configuration of the modem when it is wallgardened.

You can always call Comcast and have then activate the modem for you. You'll need the Mac address at the bottom of your modem to activate it over the phone.

Online Activation usually requires your customer account number. But since it looks like you do not have this data, you will need to call them directly.

Bought a new computer with vista instead of XP and cannot connect to internet via the ethernet line from my cable modem. what is the secret? Usually plugging it in is enough when I have moved or changed...


Yes! plugging it in on the Ethernet cable on the modem to the computer should get you online. If your not able to get online, you may want to check the following:

1. Make sure that the Ethernet adapter on the computer is enabled. If you can't find the Local Area Connection icon in your Network connections (control panel\network and sharing center), check if the network adapter is properly installed.

2. Some cable service providers require the MAC/Physical address of the Computer to get it online through the modem. If the old computer is working with the modem, you may want to contact your ISP and ask their assistance in getting you online using your new computer.
