Question about Linksys EtherFast 8-Port 10/100 Auto-Sensing Hub (Desktop) [ EFAH08W ] (104832)
I am using a ''Linksys EtherFast 10/100 8 Port Auto-Sensing Hub#EFAH08W'' and I cannot connect my two PC's together in order to sharefiles and the internet. I keep getting an IP error. It says somethingalong the lines of ''IP conflict''.
I asked around a bit and was told I needed a router.
The thing is I thought what I had was a router of sorts and it has worked in the past through other high-speed ISP's.
The ISP I use now provides HS access through a CABLE modemn as previously I had connected a HS ISP through the phone line.
My question, therefore, is ''Am I merely doing something wrong in the connection settings or do I need to replace the hardware?'' I have had it work for me in the past through other ISP's.''
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.
