How do I connect two notebooks (running on XP


Connect the two computers together either with a Crossover cable or a Hub/Switch to the Ethernet card in your computer.
Set the IP address on both computers. Goto Start > Control Panel >Network Connections (choose switch to classic view if you cannot see network connections)
Look for your Local Area Connection Ethernet adapter, right-click and choose properties.
Select Internet Protocol TCP/IP and choose properties.
Setup the IP as 192.168.1.1 and the subnet mask of 255.255.255. 0 on the first computer and 192.168.1.2 on the second with the same subnet mask.
Choose OK then OK/close again
To share your files, right click on any folder and choose Sharing to make them shared.

MY compaq laptop will connect to a wireless network but when I connect to the Uni netwrk via the cable my computer indicates there is MAC address and won't work. Any ideas please, I have tried other cables...


Calm down, try this step. do you want to connect your laptop to cable network? if yes, then click on LAN icon on your task bar or you click on "My Network Places" once it open, click on view my network connections, there you see Local Area Connection which is your LAN device. Right click and point to Properties. There you see Options like Client for Microsoft Network, File and Printer Sharing for Microsoft Networks, Qos Packet Schedule, and Internet Protocol (TCP/IP). Click on Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) and then on Properties. Now you see options like "Obtain an IP address automatically and Use the following IP address. Click the second option which is "Use the following IP address" input the ip address like follows. IP address: 192.168.0.25, Subnet Mask:255.255.255.0, Default gateway is the ip address of your network, then input it there and the same thing with Preferred DNS server:also input the ip address of your network. Finally click on OK and wait a moment for the system to apply the settings. After that, you click on OK. Thanks and Goodluck..........

No ip address on computer


IP addresses are generally assigned when you connect to another networking device such as a router, switch, or modem. You should first go to your Network Connections and right click on your networking device and click on properties. Click on Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) and hit properties. Then click on the box that says Obtain IP address automatically and Obtain DNS server address automatically. Now when you make connection with the router, switch or modem it should assign you an IP address. If this doesn't happen then you need to check your network cable, or wireless log in proceedure to find out why you're not connecting. These rules aren't for all systems. Some ISPs may require you to put in DNS servers and IP addresses. If the above doesn't help then contact your ISP to find out if there are specific settings. You can also view your Network Configuration settings by going to "Start" > "Run" cmd then in the window type /ipconfig /all. If you're connected properly you should have IP address, default gateway, DNS server and DHCP servers.

Internet hookup


This is not the manufacturer's site, but i will try to help.
Is it your own network?
You need to make sure that the network is not protected, or you'll need the password.
Go to Start>Control Panel on your computer
Then go to Network Connections
There should be an icon for your wireless connection.
Right-click -> select Properties
In the selectbox select 'Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)'
Click Properties
Check if 'Obtain an IP-address automatically' and 'Obtain DNS-server' are selected
If they were not, Press <Ok> two times and try to connect to the wireless network again.

Can you also tell what IP-address you get?
Find it by going to Start > Run
Type 'cmd' without the quotation marks and press <Ok>
you get a black command box
type 'ipconfig', again without the quotation marks and press <Enter>
Please tell me the IP-address it tells you...

Hi
I am try to take a stab at answering your query.

Internet Protocol (IP) Address preceeding with "169" means your PC is not receiving IP Address "generally" from your Boradband Modem or Internet Service Provider (ISP). The PC through Automatic Private Internet Protocol Addressing (APIPA) is assigning itself a temporal IP address.
This conditions means either
1. Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) Client service is not running properly on your PC (Unlikely)
2. There is no connection between your PC and Broadband Device or ISP wired or wirelessly (very likely)
3. DHCP Server Service is not configured or not running on Boardband device (likely) or ISP (unlikely)
4. Some firewall software when improperly configured are known to block all ports and services. This can block TCP Ports 67 and 68 used by DHCP Client/Server communication (quite likely)
Some pointers for more info;
1. Your query suggest your issues are limited to Wireless connection. Can you access Internet through wired connection? If so;
a) What Wired connection is in use? USB or Ethernet?
b) Is wired connection through same Broadband device?
c) What IP is assigned to your PC in wired connection?
d) If wired connection works, is IP assignment static or by DHCP?
e) What Boardband device is in use? In which mode is the device set to? Router/Bridge
2. If you can't connect both wired and wireless, then it is unlikely your PC hardware is at fault. Call your Broadband Provider for further help and configuration. Try entily disabling your firwall software (if installed) and test conection.
3. If you can connect through wired connection and your IP Address does not proceed with "192.168" or "172.16" then your boadband device is likely in a bridge mode. In bridge mode, the DHCP Server Service on your boardband device is disabled. Most ISPs will only assign only one IP address to a user. If an IP address has been assigned to your PC on the wired connection, then the wireless connection will not receive an IP address and therefore your PC will assign itself an IP in the range "169.254"
