A router is basically a mini-computer that splits up one internet connections to 4 (or whatever # of ports you have).

Basic Connections to a router:
A Router requires a internet connections, so your broadband modem must connect to the WAN port (theres only one) of the router DIRECTLY. Then Ethernet cables go from the router to the computers on the LAN ports. Don't do something weird like connecting your internet to your computer then your computer to the routers WAN port, it'll most likely mess up.

Once you have connected your router like this, it should work.

If your modem only has a usb port, I have no idea how to make that work out. Sorry. Try getting a new modem from your ISP, or check if your modem does have a ethernet port, if it does just connnect that to the routers wan port.

Also computers should not interconnect with each other with use of a router. Thats what the router is for. Everything gets connected and split up at the router, nothing connects to anything else but the router, basically.

    As for the drivers, use google to find them, if they were originally part of your system, go to your manufacturers website, and go to their support/download section to find your drivers, and install them. If they were added later on to the system, just google it/go to the manufacturers support section as well.

    Especially for the PCMCIA ethernet card, you should go to the manufacturers site to download the drivers there (from support/downloads), since it is a card/addon.

I am trying to setup up a D-Link DES-1016D, 10/100 Fast Ethernet Switch to allow 5 laptops to connect, 1 cat 5 is connected to another switch that will provide these 5 laptops internet how can i do this? I...


The Simplest Way of doing this is this:

You will need just 1 switch and 5 Straight-Through cables.

(This is Provided that your laptop will connect to the internet through another method. e.g (Though a USB Modem or WIFI) ).

Connect the Main laptop to the internet through either a USB Modem or a WIFI.

Next, Connect a straight-through cable to the LAN Port of the laptop, and the other end to one of the ports of the switch.

On the network connections page, right-click on the ethernet adapter, go to TCP/IP, and give the laptop a static IP-Address, e.g 192.168.0.1 and Subnet 255.255.255.0

For the other laptops, connect each one of them to the switch using the straight-through cables, and on their ethernet adapter TCP/IP Properties, give them different IP Adresses, but in the same subnet. e.g

192.168.0.2 and 255.255.255.0 for the 1st one
192.168.0.3 and 255.255.255.0 for the 2nd one
192.168.0.4 and 255.255.255.0 for the 3rd one, ....and so on.

Next, in the default gateway for these other laptops, put the IP-Address of the First laptop that is connected to the internet. i.e 192.168.0.1.

Also repeat the same IP Address of the 1st laptop in the Preferred DNS Server for these other ones.

Next, setup home or office network on all of them,

follow on-screen instructions and when you get to the place where you have to select the type of network setup, Just select :

"This computer connects directly to the internet........" for the 1st laptop,

For the others, select : " This Computer Connect through a residential gateway or other computer on my network.".

Then give them all the same workgroup name, and accept file and printer sharing for all of them.

In case you are using Windows Vista.
The only different things include:
When you get to the TCP/IP Place, select TCP/IPv4 and Not TCP/IPv6.

Also, When you are changing the workgroup, all you need to do is to right-click on My Computer Icon, then Properties then go to Advanced, then Select Computer Name, and change the workgroup from there and restart the computer.

What I have told you is a typical, very easy network setup, and I do hope it helps you out.

Keep me posted about the problem.

Hope it helps you out.
Good luck

connect the router to the switch using any port-it does not matter which port you use. Connect each computer to any port on the switch-it matters not. The router will assign IP address to the computer as they are added.

DONE!!!

I have a d link DES-1105. cant get more than one computer to work on hub/switch.


Hi!
Unfortunately, hubs or switches cannot be use to share internet access specially if it's connected to a modem. To share internet access, you will need a router. If you prefer not to use a router, you can enable ICS (Internet Connection sharing) on one PC and share internet access to the others. However, the PC that will share internet access will need two ethernet cards (or LAN cards).

Your setup will look like this:

If internet is not a concern, and you just want to connect the computers to share files and resources, you will have to se your computers to static IP. You do not need any additional device - just connect your computers to the hub, setup a static IP on all the computers.

If you need further assistance setting up static IP on the computers, please reply and I'll give you the step by step instruction for that.

For any setup, a router will be the best option.


I hope that helps.

Good luck and have a nice day!

Just purchased laptop with windows vista home premium


If your PC has a wireless card, you can setup an AD-HOC network :

If your PC is XP: http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/using/networking/setup/adhoc.mspx

If your PC is Vista: http://windowshelp.microsoft.com/windows/en-us/help/293c504f-b944-4d5d-835c-f080129bd5dc1033.mspx

If your PC only has a wired Ethernet connection, you may still connect the two using a Wireless Access Point/Router.

Once you have the two computers connected, you may do whatever networked operations you would like:

File & Printer Sharing is the most common:

Vista: http://www.windowsnetworking.com/articles_tutorials/File-Print-Sharing-Windows-Vista.html

Try to setup home wireless network to share two home computer


Connect the home wireless network router box to the main PC through an ethernet cable with the PC powered off and the home wireless router powered off, then power on the PC & the router. Vista should locate the new wireless network and follow the windows vista network setup procedures. After the wireless network has been detected you then while the second PC's power is shut off you connect dongle adapter to the PC power on and XP will locate the new adapter. You will probably have to enter your networks pin for the connection.
Get back to me when you complete these steps.
Try next time contacting me through an online chat session. We can resolve the issue quicker while chatting together.
