I started to assist you with this in chat, but the window closed. Please let me know how your network is setup. Are you connecting directly or through a router? Have you added both PCs to a workgroup or domain?

Let me know on this and we can go to the nest step.

    Has the second computer been on the network before? I would start by opening the Device Manager and making sure that the network card is enabled. If it has a red X on it, right click on it and choose enable. I see that frequently in my work environment.

    Let me know what you find.


  • Barry Parks Feb 23, 2009

    Let's step back and make sure we are aiming at the same target. Do you want the two computers to 'talk' to each other, or just share the internet connection? I wish we could get back into the chat area, it would save time. Have you checked to see if the network card is enabled?

    I'll be online for a while. Let me know.

To reset the Linksys back to the default settings - Press and hold the pinhole RESET button at the back of therouter with the power ON for 20 secs. then release the RESET button.
To connect to your wireless router, the router's wireless settings needs to beconfigured with the SSID, encryption etc. and also the wireless cards in allthe laptops/computers needs to be configured with these router's wirelesssettings. Then the laptops/desktop computers can communicate with your wirelessrouter.
Connect a LAN cable from the Linksys to the LAN port on your computer.
Open a browser and enter the Linksys configuration URL
http://192.168.1.1
The default login = admin
The default PW = admin
You can protect your router by changing the default PW (write it down and putit in a safe place)
Go to the wireless configuration and set up the SSID and WPA or WPA2encryption.
Apply these settings to the wireless card in your laptop/computer.

WHEN I DIRECT MY INTERNET WIRE I CAN CONNECT BUT WHEN CONNECTING IT TO ROUTER I GET LIMITED CONNECTIVITY.


It means that the router is not configured yet. First, you have make sure that your internet wire is connected to the WAN port of your router and the computer should be connected to one of the LAN ports of your router.

Check the LEDs. Be sure that the LEDs for WAN and LAN where your computer is connected to is lit up or blinking (will depend on the brand and model number of the router).

Then you need to access the Web Utility of the router to set it up correctly. You need to refer to the manual of your router. Having a router does not mean that it will work immediately once you connect your internet or modem to it. It needs configuration.

You may also contact the tech support of your router (since the brand was not provided) for assistance

Thank you!

Have 604 router. all of a sudden only two computers can be active through the router and it does not allow the other two to work. things were working fine with all computers getting browser access... now...


On the computers that are not getting Internet access, check the LAN cables to the router. Does the Link LEDs on the router for these computers are ON?
If the LED lights are off then the LAN cable and/or network cards are faulty.
Check Device Manager on these computers to see if the LAN card is working and enabled. If not re-install the LAN drivers. If the driver installation cannot detect the LAN card then most likely the LAN card is faulty and needs replacing.
Get back to me with the results of these tests and I can advise what to do next.

I wanna connect two computers using a usb bridge cable 2.0. I don't know what driver i have to look for. I don't have the CD


You can also connect two computers together using a CROSSOVER LAN cable (usually red colored cable) so they are networked together.
This is a preferred method of networking two computers.

Some of my workstation immediately disconnects fron internet


That sounds (apart from a really heavy load on the little router) very much like you are running out of DHCP addresses.
Are your computers set to static or DHCP?
Are they connected via cable or wireless?
What is your DHCP range?
What is your lease time?

If the computers get rebooted i.e. 6 times per day and your default lease time is 1 day, that means that only one computer is blocking already 6 IP addresses per day. 33 computers therefore are blocking 198 addresses, which is almost your entire spectrum from 192.168.1.2 - 192.168.1.254.
So either set them to static IP or shorten the lease time.

Will a computer with 10/10 LAN connect to my wireless LAN?


The 10/100 LAN is a wired connection. If it is connected to the wrt54g through an ethernet cable yes it will see anything on the wireless connection but if you want the computer to use a wireless connection then you will need to get an 802.11B or 802.11G wireless adapter. The wireless adapter does not have to be Linksys but it does generally make thing easier if you use all the same brand.

Laptop can't connect to internet


1) Your Network or DSL router may have bad or missing information. Powercycle your router and/or rebuild the configuration in your router.
2) Double-check your cabling to the computer. Make sure you have the correct type of cabling, straight-through CAT 5 or possibly a crossover cable and try another cable or test the cable to make sure its working properly.
3) Check your network card to make sure its configured correctly and working properly. Many times setting the network card to 10Mbps/Full Duplex will solve this issue. To do this, open Control Panel, System, Device Manager. Go to the properties of the Network card, click on the Advanced tab and find the Link Speed and Duplex section. Change it from Auto Detect to 10Mbps/Full Duplex.
4) Check and test your firewall. Your firewall, especially if its a software firewall like ZoneAlarm, Black Ice, Norton Firewall or something else could be blocking the connection. Disable your firewall and test the connection. You may have to resolve the problem by even uninstalling and reinstalling the firewall.
5) Check your IP address assignments and workgroup settings in the computer for accuracy. Statically assign IPs to the computers in your network.
6) Reset your TCP/IP stack by downloading and running WinsockXPFix.exe a Visual Basic program designed to fix corrupted TCP/IP issues, host file problems and a variety of other connectivity issues.

Siemens 4200 2 computers


Yes and No! The 4200 gives you the option to connect via USB or Ethernet. You can only use one or the other to connect. You have two options. The first DOES involve another "gadget". The second does not!

Solution #1

I realize you're not looking to use additional equipment, but a network hub, switch or router will give you what you need. You can pick up a very inexpensive router for under $50 or even better a wireless router for a few bucks more.

I recommend a Linksys Wireless Router (Model - WRT54G) as it is very user friendly and comes ready to use. Just connect the port labeled "Ethernet" to the "WAN" port of the Linksys Wireless Router. Then connect both of your computers to any of the four "LAN" ports.

Solution #2

You can connect the first computer directly to the 4200 via USB and connect the second computer directly to the first computers ethernet port using a Network Crossover cable. Without a router of hub between the two computers, a crossover cable is required to allow them to talk to each other.

Once you have them connected to each other, on the first computer open the network connection properties for your internet connection (will be the one setup during the install of the USB modem) and click "Share This Computers Internet Connection".

Now the first option is surely the most reliable and keeps the traffic separate.

Hope this help!

There is no utility that comes natively with XP to monitor traffic on an ICS connected LAN. I assume you are not directly connected to the ICS computer, and are running through a Switch or Hub? And you do not have access to this to see how many lines are connected?

If this is the case, you can download and install a packet sniffer and place it within the LAN in front of the ICS computer. It will 'see' all packets traveling across the wire, and report the MAC addresses and IP Addresses to which they are bound. Since every NIC has a unique MAC address (and IP Address), you can see how many computers (NICs) there are in the LAN, and connected to the wire.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Packet_sniffer

Ethereal:

http://www.ethereal.com/download.html

You can also use a utility like LanGuard Analyzer to search for all computers on the LAN:

http://www.gfi.com/lannetscan/

The last time I checked the trial version is fully operational for 30 days.. I use it in my Corporate LAN to monitor all 1000 computers in my domain.

One other thing to keep in mind, since ICS uses the Class C subnet (this cannot be changed), it has a limit of 254 clients that can be attached.. just an FYI..

Good luck!
