If your router is already set-up properly, yes it would be easy as connecting pc1 to router and connecting pc2 to router.. pc1 connects to pc2

Connected to wifi but no internet connection


Wireless networks have become an increasingly popular way to access the Internet. Connecting to a wireless network allows you to browse the Internet without having to physically connect any cords to your computer.


Troubleshooting wireless connectivity can sometimes be confusing, because even if a wireless network is not able to bring you to any web pages, often your computer's wireless card will still connect to the wireless network that is being broadcast.


In other words, a wireless network will read "connected" even if it is not connected to the Internet.


Connect to a different wireless network. If there is an alternate wireless network within range of your computer that you legally are able to use (a free public Wi-Fi rather than your neighbor's wireless network, for instance), try connecting to it and browsing the Internet.


If the same issue occurs on the alternate wireless network, you may have an issue with your computer's wireless card or with your Internet browser.


If you are able to connect to the alternate network but still not able to connect to your own, the problem is most likely localized to the wireless network you use at home.


Reset all devices.

The great majority of Internet connection issues can be resolved by a simple reset of all the devices in your home network.


Locate the power cords of both your modem and your wireless router and unplug them (if you use a modem/router combination, simply unplug its power cord) for a full 30 seconds.


Plug them back in and restart your computer.

Try to connect to the Internet using your wireless network after your computer has booted back up.


If the connection still fails, some further troubleshooting is required.

Bypass your wireless router.


If your computer's wireless card is connecting to your wireless network of choice yet you are still not able to access any websites, there may be a connection issue on either your modem or router.


The easiest way to locate the problem is to temporarily eliminate the router from the network. Locate the Ethernet cable that connects your modem to your router and unplug it from the router.


Plug the cable directly into one of the Ethernet ports on your computer and reset the modem in the manner described above.


Now try your Internet connection again. If there is still no Internet access, the problem is most likely with your modem or your computer; contact the technical support department of your Internet service provider (ISP) for further assistance.


If the modem goes online directly connected, your router is causing the problem and may need to be reconfigured. Contact the router manufacturer for further assistance.


Hope this helps

No internet or lan lights on? Tried reset, hard reset. All other lights, power, wireless, router are on and green. No lights on internet and lan connection. I have tried another wireless router and have no...


Hi there,
The LAN lights will only turn on once you have an Ethernet cable connected to it and the other end of the cable is connected to a working computer.
If you already have a computer connected to the Ethernet port of the router via an Ethernet cable and the lights are still off. Check if the computer you have connected recognizes a network via LAN.
If the lights on the router are still off and the computer doesn't recognize a network then that means that the port for the ethernet of your Router is bad and sadly there's no way of getting that fixed but to have the router replaced.
Otherwise if the lights are off and the computer recognizes the Network and lets you connect to the internet or other computers on the same network then its just the LED of the LAN light that's broken and I think you can live with that.
Hope this helps!

How do I ad another computer to my router


Since you are adding one, it means you do have a computer that is already working with this router. It means you router is been configured already. So if you need to add another one, its very simple.

For wired connection:
-just get an Ethernet cable long enough to reach your computer then connect the ends on the available Ethernet port located on the back of the router and the other end should be connected on the Ethernet port on your computer.

For wireless connection:
Look for a wireless icon on the bottom part of your screen near the clock. For Windows Vista and Windows 7 just click it and will show you the wireless networks that are available. For Windows XP, right click the icon and select "View available wirleess networks". As soon as you see the list of wireless networks, select yours and click "Connect". If your network is secure type the security key that been setup on the wireless router, if not secured it should connect immediately.

Modem <-- Ethernet cable --> WAN port on router

LAN port #1 on router <--- Ethernet cable --> network-port on desktop computer

LAN port #2 on router <-- Ethernet cable --> network-port on laptop computer

If the router has built-in "wireless" capability, then use the desktop computer's connection to the router to "configure" the wireless adapter, i.e., pick an SSID, and establish a password, and then your laptop computer can use the SSID/password to connect "wirelessly" to the router.

Computer says that a network cable is disconnected


This could either be the router or the computers network card. Both can be blown by lightening strikes / storms. If you have a laptop or another computer try connecting this, or asking a friend to try there laptop - this will tell you if it is the router or the network card.
Either way - a new router is £10 and a new network card is also about £10 off eBay.

Sharing of internet connection


You need to purchase a router and two network cables to connect the computers. If your computers do not have ethernet connections then you need a wireless router and two wireless network adapters for the computer. II recommend the Linksys W300N or similar for the router and the Linksys WUSB300N or similar for the network card. There are very simple set up instruction with the router and cards.

Brand new linksys wireless, Host (Hard wired)has intermittent connectivity. Indicates it is conneted and is working properly.Cannot browse Web. The wireless part works great!


try to plug the Ethernet cord for the Host computer on another Ethernet port on the Linksys router.

have you tried replacing the Ethernet cable that's connecting the Host computer to the linksys router?

check if Host computer can get a response from a website by going to Start>Run, then type CMD on the Run box and click OK. On the black screen, type PING www.yahoo.com then press Enter.. if you get the word reply 4 times, it means the computer is connected to the Internet.
If there's no response from the PING test, it means there's totally no connection.

It's also possible the problem is with the Local Area Network adapter or Ethernet adapter. Try disabling the Ethernet adapter and re-enable it by going to Start>Control Panel>Network Connections, you should see the Local Area Connection, right click on it then select Disable then Enable it again. then observe if you're still experiencing intermittent connection on the Host computer.

and if you have security software, try disabling it temporarily and check the connection again.

and let's make sure the cable or dsl modem is connected to the Internet port on the back of the Linksys router.
