Hello...if your son's desktop is set up near the router, the simplest way is connect his desktop to the router via an ethernet cable.

To do this, find an ethernet cable. Plug one end into a spare port (socket) on the back of the router, and the other into the ethernet port on his desktop (it should look like this, with the ethernet symbol under it).

That's it! He should soon be connected to the internet.

NOTE: If you need to buy an ethernet cable, key words to look for are Cat5e or Cat6, straight or patch cable - NOT crossover.

If your son's desktop is not near the router, you may want to consider a wireless connection. Please come back to Fixya if this is the case, as this takes a little more time.

If the wireless internet works, the desktop doesn't


Check that the cable-modem (or the DSL-modem) is connected to the 'WAN' port on the router -- there is only one 'WAN' port.

Check that one of the 4 (or 5?) 'LAN' ports on the router is connected to the network-adapter on your computer.

Turn the router off.
Turn the router on.
Restart your computer, and it should regain Internet access, for both "wired" and "wireless" devices.

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. Your internet service provider is DSL. You can try to reconfigure the router. Press the reset button on the router for 30 seconds. release it. unplug the power to the router. plug it back in. wait for 1 minute and try to reconfigure the router.

Although cable to desktop connects to internet, my router from desktop to laptop via router won't connect.


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.
