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.

I AM UNABLE TO ACCESS INTERNET THRU MY HYBRID APPLE MAC DESK TOP-


Go into network set up a shared Internet connection using ICS (Internet Connection Sharing) You can use Internet Connection Sharing (ICS) to share an Internet connection among two or more computers on a network. First, you need one computer, called the host computer, that is connected to the Internet and that has a separate connection to the other computers on your network. You enable ICS on the Internet connection. The other computers on your network then connect to the host computer, and from there to the Internet through the host computer's shared Internet connection.
If your computer is connected to a network, network policy settings might prevent you from completing these steps.
On the host computer (the computer whose Internet connection you plan to share):
  1. ?id=microsoft.windows.resources.shellexecutetopiciconClick to open Network Connections.
  2. Right-click the connection that you want to share, and then click Properties.getcontent.aspx?assetid=18abb370-ac1e-4b6b-b663-e028a75bf05b&documentset=en-us&renderkey=signed1 If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
  3. Click the Sharing tab, and then select the Allow other network users to connect through this computer’s Internet connection check box.

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.
