(right click) MY COMPUTER, Manage, DEVICES (Device Manager). All devices should show up by category.
under Ethernet/Networking you will see a Yellow Caution or a red X. Either way, click once on that line, and press DELETE key. Remove the device.
Close out, RESTART COMPUTER
This should trigger the system to re-install the Ethernet Networking Device. If you leave the Ether Cable plugged in, then you should automatically recognize/discover the network (nternet, etc).
If this does not work, then you should probably look your system up (support.dell.com, support.hp.com, etc) and identify the network device. You SHOULD be able to download the drivers write them onto a CD and transfer to Desktop #2.

Try plugging the desktop into another router port. Recycle the router. Set both your desktop and laptop to obtain IP address automatically. Make sure router is dynamically assigning IP addresses. Make sure your Domain and Workgroup settings are the same on both machines. Those are just a few ideas. :) Hope it helps.
You will need to check the wireless settings of the router
is there any computer connected to the router ?
If yes then you can open the router set up page on that computer.
Router set up page is the page where you can check all the wireless settings of the router.
You will need to check the settings of the router.
You are able to go online when you connect the computer directly to the modem.

First connect that desktop to linksys with ethernet cable. then set ip property to network adapter . Set ip address ,subnet mask and gateway ip to ip property. Set ip address as the ip of network like if router ip is 192.168.1.1 so set ip like 192.168.1.15 set subnet mask as same as your other computer. Set default gatway ip as your router ip. Then you can connect internet. Let me know if you need more assistance.
You can manually go into the network settings and delete the old network configuration, and set up a new one. If all else fails, go to your desktop (which I am assuming connects OK) and check the settings on it, and use those to set up the laptop. Hope this helps
Desk top to internet is OK. How about Destop through Router connection to Internet OK? Assuming you want to connect wireless from Lap top to Network, need to configure correctly for wireless in Router. If you connect Lap top to router by wire and it didn't work that mean your router is bad.
make sure both computers are on the same workgroup.. make sure you have the firewall settings to allow incoming connections to your shared files... make sure you have allowed acces to them in windows security panel..if you can access the media then you are almost there with the setting... fasted way is to right click on start choose explore then right click on drive or folder you want to share and then choose share from menu.. it will change your firewall and security settings so long as you have already turned off the windows advisor..
You don't need to have a WiFi adapter for the desktop. It can be connected using a LAN cable from the PC's Ethernet port to one of the routers Ethernet port. AS long as the desktop is set to "Auto obtain IP add" then it should work straight out.
If the LinkSys WRT54G did not came with a setup CD/Wizard, then you would need to reset it since I can only assume that it has been tried/used elsewhere before and the settings/configuration may not match your ISP and/or your network configuration. Reset involves pressing a small recessed button at the rear of the unit for about 10 seconds or more.
Once the reset was done and your router can connect to your ISP and therefore your desktop to the Internet, the laptop would also follow suit as long as the network settings is likewise set to Auto obtain.....
To verify if you can connect to the router, on your desktop, open a browser and log on to your router using 192.168.1.1,
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
