Two laptops, one connection, how do I get both online?

I have two laptops and am attempting to connect to the router at the same time. I can log one in, but the other one will not log in. How can I get both to log in? It also says that I have the same IP Address, I think this is the problem but I don't know how to fix it. Please help.

On one of the laptops go to start on the taskbar, select run, in the field next to open key in ipconfig /renew. This should instruct the network host to request a new ip address from the DHCP server.

Make sure that your computer is able to go online through the modem.
If your computer is not able to go online through the modem then you will need to call ISP first.

1. Each wireless device has to be allow to connect to the router via a specific IP address assigned by the router in its router table.
It also can setup a wireless device, such as a laptop or phone via a MAC Address ( Media Access Control) number that is assigned to almost every wireless device.
Here is an instruction set to follow to set up your wireless device in your router ( it is generic but works).


.Log into router. Using either 192.168.0.1 ot 192.168.1.1 in a browser window that is ( internet Explorer or firefox)
2. Verify wireless router name( on the computer) >>> ( on/off) ( router status window)

On the back of the router is a reset button, Hold for this for 10-30 seconds, then attempt connection, Please note this will remove any password that keeps devices from connecting and as such you should log on to the device and reapply one to keep little demons from leeching your internet. >:D

Router won't log into it's IP address online


It appears to me that you have everything plugged into the desktop PC. This is not the way that it should be done. Plug the cable modem into the wireless router via the Internet/WAN port. Plug your desktop PC into one of the ports numbered 1-4. Now connect to the router via the wireless connection for the router and you should be able to now connect to the internet with your laptop.
If it still does not work, power down everything in this order: Laptop, Desktop, Router, Cable Modem. Bring everthing up in the reverse order (Cable Modem, Router, Desktop, Laptop) waiting for each device to stablize before moving to the next.
Once you get everything working, turn on your wireless security (WPA not WEP) asap to keep your computers and surfing safe, and to keep intruders off your network.

Constantly losing connection


A wireless router if set at enable DHCP will always asign an IP address to each pc, and keep it, it will not alter until the next time your connected, and even if the first pc that you connected with, first next time, it will get the same ip address allocation. The solution may be that your router is set to disconnect from the internet after a period of innactivity. Go into router settings and look for something similair to (Idle connection-Never).
