Re: network driver for my clone computer
The driver you need depends on the chipset used. What brand of computer do you have, or is it home-built? For name-brand computers you can normally get the drivers you need from the manufacturer's website. If it's home-built, the drivers can be downloaded from the motherboard maker's site if the network adapter is integrated into the board. If you are using an expansion network card, you can look on the card for manufacturer and model number and get the drivers from their site. Or you can search for generic drivers based on the chip number.

Ok, this happens because you are having Driver Issues with the WiFi Driver and your USB "Layer" "\'stop ubeschi\' " (sic) This is what this means. I advice you to try to upgrade the driver. upgrade the USB layer, apply all MS "Hot Fixes" applying to the USB layer. Also make sure any other USB devices, are "playing nice" with each other, so upgrade all USB drivers for any other devices too. Try using a Powered Hub, this can often help, after doing all the above though. If this doesn't help, I have heard that a complete reinstall of the OS, can alleviate this problem if the above methods don't work.

Most likely, your ISP only allows a single MAC address to connect to them. To make this work with multiple computers you'll need a router that can do MAC address cloning, i.e. it reads the MAC address off of the computer that works and presents this to the ISP in all cases even when the request comes from different MAC address.
The MAC address is unique and set at the factory for each ethernet card so it's not something you can or should attempt to change. If you were able to change the MAC address on the second computer to match the first you would break your network rather than fix the problem.
It is also possible that you are using fixed ip addresses and simply need to configure the NIC on the new computer. If you check the IP v4 settings for the old computer and they have an explicit address for the card then this is is the issue. If so, simply configure the new computer to match the old computer but make sure the last of the four numbers in the ip address is something between 1 and 254 that does not match the first computer or the gateway address.
HI. you have to check first what kid of modem u have.. im sure if the laptop is connected directly to the modem, u have a wired connection and u can connect to the internet.. if ur modem is a cable modem, u need to mac clone the mac address of the computer that can connect to the internet. u need to connect the computer that can connect to the internet to the router and do a mac clone and the internet connection settings is dhcp..if u are using a username and password to connect to the internet, u need to use the pppoe settings on the router, and if ur isp give u a static ip address, u need to set the router on static ip. how u can check the ip address, click on start, run and type cmd and it will show a dos prompt, type ipconfig/all and it will list the ip address, subnetmask, default gateway and dns server.. u need to setup the router first in order to talk to ur modem..
Go to the computer manufacturers web site and put in the product number for your computer, then when you have the info on your computer up, you should see a link for support or software and drivers, when you are on the drivers page, look for networking drivers and download.
