Where does the phone line go in the lynksys box.

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.

Phone Line?

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


Hope this helps

I cant run my PC and X-box at the same time.


On you PC, go to a command prompt (aka dos window).  Type "ipconfig" in both cases, the case that works and the case that doesn't work and post the results.  Also find the network config on the X-box and post the address and subnet mask that it reports in both cases.
Your router typically uses DHCP to provide IP addresses.  It needs to provide an address to the X-box as well as your PC.  The router should be setup to act like a DHCP server, this allows it to pass out the IP addresses.
If your PC and / or X-box is setup to use a static address, it could be the addresses are in different subnets (172.16.1.1 vs 168.1.1.1) with an IP mask that doesn't allow them to communicate (255.255.255.0).
You may need to change some of the DHCP configuration options in the router to make it act like a server, and set both your PC and your X-box to be automatically assigned an address from a DHCP server.
Let me know if that helps.

Auto-Sensing Hub - ' Router? '


Hello Steve,

A hub will work to hook two PCs together, but you will need a router to get any data transferred. You can set up your XP computer to act as a router in the Network Connections section of Control Panel. Be aware that one of your computers must have two network cards. One must plug in to the DSL and the other must plug in to the hub. If that's the case, click the "Set up a home or small office network" on the left side of the window and a wizard will pop up and help you the rest of the way.

If you don't want to deal with it, you can just purchase a router.

Let me know if you have questions - I'll monitor this thread.

How to hook up the Ethernet 5port Workgroup Hub Model No. ew5HUB


To start with please make sure it says router on it as the title says "Networking Hub". These are two different devices. If not return the Hub and purchase a Linksys Router then follow instructions below.

Assuming you have a router:

Before you begin unplug the power from the Cable or DSL Modem before you start as they will have to be powered on in a particular order I will discuss later.

Your cable or DSL modem will have a cable coming out of it that looks similar to a phone line except a little larger. The cable will say CAT5 or CAT6 or Ethernet on it.

On your Linksys Router there will be a ports/jack that you can plug the Cable into from your Cable/DSL Modem. You want to look for one labled "WAN" or "Internet". Plug it in then plug in the power to your Cable or DSL Modem. When the "Ready" light is on the modem, plug in the power cable to your router.

The next step is hooking it up to your computer. There will be anywhere from 1 to 8 more ports available on your Router that is number 1,2,3,4, etc. Plug another Ethernet Cable into any one of those ports. With the other end plug it into your PC or Laptop, there is only one port/jack on your computer that this plug will fit in. Power up your PC and voila, you should be on the Internet.

Please let me know if this solves your problem.

Thanks,
Adam

Just connected to cable modem from dsl


two things are you hooked up from the dsl to the router via Ethernet or usb is so check the settings in the router, it should be auto, so it could choose but lets not assume anything.may sure dhcp client or server is enabled on the router, if not it would not pick up the ip adddress from dsl.
Is the mac address of your computer hardcoded to your dsl, if it is then you would have to clone your pc mac to the router for it to work.
If this is not the case, try a different router if it works the router is faulty. if that does not work plug the dsl directly to the pc and go to start, run type ipconfig /all if you recieve an ip address and you can see a dns address from your isp and you can go to the internet, then the problem is your router, if not the problem is with you isp dsl, please contact them. was this helpful let me know.

Only 1 computer getting internet with FS605


Sorry to say, you have the wrong part. Whoever told you you could hook it up to both your PCs and your cable modem didn't know what they were talking about.

Your FS605 is just a switch; hooked up directly to a cable modem, you will only see one IP address as that's all the cable modem will allocate.

What you need is a router, to allocate multiple local IP addresses and share the connection up to the cable modem.

Linksys BEFSR41 routers are ridiculously cheap these days and highly reliable, or if you like Netgear, you'll need the RP614.
