I have a big lynksys thing that I can hook up multiple pc up to. I know it works because I used it before. When I bypass the box I can get one pc online. I can't seem to figure out where the phone line connects to the lynksys box so I can have all my pcs online. Please help. Its a lynksys 16 port.
Re: where does the phone line go in the lynksys box.
You need a cable or dsl modem to connect to the internet. From the modem you run an ethernet cable to the "broadband" or "Internet" port of your router. Also make sure your lynksys is a router, not a switch
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

The short answer is no you really cant use multiple modems. The internet should come in to your home via the modem, then go in to a ROUTER. Many times the router will have 3 to 5 ports on the back to hook your other computers too. This means running cables. Another way is to use WIRELESS cards that you can find on the net or from best buy.
If your router does not have any extra ports you need to buy something called and ethernet switch. Again they come in 4 and 8 port models up to LOTS AND LOTS Of ports for big companies. You hook the switch in to the router, then hook the computers in to the switch.
your statment dosnt clearly define what you intend to do im going to guss your reffering to an account on your internet conection this is only posible if you have a broadband conection
ie dsl or cable modem
if you do the next pice of hardware you will need is a router i recomend the newer standerd witch is defined as wirless N or simply N the older tech is the g standard
the diffrence in the 2 is conectivity speed
the g standard has a max thru put of 150 Mb/s
where as the N standard has a thruput of 1
Gb/s or 1000 Mb/s
i just bought a netgear n300 to replace a failing 12 year old lynksis g standard
works great but isnt expandable past 4 pc's with out using the wirless features but i have no intention of ever having more then 4 pc's hooked up in this house so no big deal there
I paid 79$ for my N300 from bestbuy
once you have the router the rest is a matter of hooking it up and configuring it
hope this is what you ment by adding your grandsons computer to your account
if not you will have to repost and in alot more details about what your intent is
best of luck the all knowing moron
You have to set seting from routers menu. To use it hold 15 second
router restart button, that restore factory setings, then go browser http://192.168.1.1/ , and use username "admin" and password "admin" in default. There you can set setting by your connection.
The very first thing to check with a fax machine is that the line itself is OK. The possibilities are much greater that there is a problem with the LINE and not the HP itself.
Hook up a regular telephone to the fax line, disconnecting anything else that may be on the line. If the telephone doesn't have a dial tone, call the phone company. If you DO have a dial tone, then maker sure that the phone line is connected to the correct port on the HP. There are two, usually. One is for the LINE and the other is for an EXTENSION (a phone that is daisy chained off the fax machine). If you have the LINE connected to the EXT port, it may give you this error.
If you have multiple items connected to the same phone line, try removing all of them but one regular phone, and see if you have a dial tone. If so, add the other items back, checking for a dial tone after each one. If one of them causes a lack of dial tone, replace or repair it.
The phone company may tell you that the problem lies in your inside wiring. I have seen that before. You can take your phone out to the telephone service box on the outside of the building. These usually have regular phone jacks in them. Disconnect the jack wire that runs into your house, and connect the regular telephone into the box itself. If you have a dial tone, then there is indeed a problem with the wiring in your building.
If it's answering on your main number, then you are not plugged into the fax jack. You should have a separate phone jack for fax. If you have internet phone there should be a second jack on the back of your phone box. You can test that you have a functioning second line by plugging the fax into it and using the fax unit to dial your home number.
occassionally, the wireless router needs to be turned off and on. The are some issues with regards to the stabitlity of these entry level wireless routers. What I do is put a timer at the outlet to reset it every morning. cheers!
To hook up your lynksys router plug your internet connection wire in the back of the router where it says linksys then run another cable from the slot one to your computer, when you first get your router your username and password will be admin type your IP address into your internets browser window and use your username and password to log onto your linksys router, choose your router settings and there you have it,
Your having what is called "line loss". The telephone signal is not strong enough to power multiple units. You should use the hold feature, or turn your volume up, or use the conference feature, but the best solution is to put it on hold if you can.
