Dell Dimension 4600 - unable to connect to internet.
Have a working PC on the same connection, When I move the cable to new PC (Dell dim 4600 running XP Profesional version) is not working. I use Comcast High Speed Internet and have not been able to install nor create a new connection from new machine. I looked at the adapter (Intel (R) PRO/100 VE Network Connection in the device manager but it seems to be working properly, however under other divices the Network Controller says that divers are not installed.

When working with routers, CAT-5 cables are the more usual cable used. Your modem's Ethernet Port --- connect it via cable to the router's WAN input. Connect one of the router's LAN outputs to your computer's LAN input with another CAT-5 cable. Go through the appropriate Router Setup by putting http://192.168.1.1 into your Internet Explorer, with ' admin ' for User Name, and no password (just press Enter in Password frame). Once you are in to the router setup, you can select your Network Name (SSID) and then implement whatever Security you might want to use. You should be up and running by now, nhave lots of fun!
it easy plug your big plug rg 45 cable from the 2010 into your port 1 on your router then buy more rg45 cable from comp store plug it into port 2 then into comp 1 plug another one into port 3 on your router and plug it into other comp. everything should work xp will pick up and install anything needed. have fun surfing
Just connect my dlink 615 to a new dell computer on the vista page for the Network and internet the broadband connection is disconnected. What can I do to connect it? When I switch the dlink network back to the old computer everything works fine.
The cable modem sometimes register the hardware MAC address of the connected device. So your PC may be registered and it won't accept the router now. Connect the WAN port of the router to your cable modem and power the modem off and on again. It should re-register the connected device and now your router should work.
open internet explorer, go to tools, internet options, then the connections tab and make sure ' never dial a connection' is ticked, assuming you had a dial up connection before using the router on this pc or if you briefly used it.
How far are you running the CAT5 cables from house to house? CAT5e only has a solid range of about 150ft, and anything near 100ft is pushing it. You may also need to use CROSSOVER cables when plugging routers into other routers.
Also, who has the actual internet connection? I'm assuming House 2 does. One big problem is a router is your Gateway address. And, if house 2 is the only one with a valid Internet connection (via DSL or Cable, etc), then the router in house 2 is the only "true gateway". And, all 3 houses need to be in the same physical network (i.e. 192.168.1.0 range or whatever), and all computers should have the same Gateway address...which would be the IP address of the router in House 2.
What you really need in this situation is 1 router and 2 switches. Put the router in House 2 and put switches in House 1 and 3. That would be the best way to handle this problem. It would also end your connectivity problems.
