Hi, basically it really doesn't matter what sort of PC ya using... when ya connect up to the WiFi Router, the PC "Detects the SSID" (An SSID is just a unique name say.. My_WiFi) of said Router, and then with the "Remote" Computer, you simply look for, and then connect to, that network. The DHCP address server in the Router will automatically assign the "Remote" PC a WiFi address.. and from then on it doesn't really matter what any other Operating Systems the PC's are using as you are not actually connecting to them, per se, but rather conecting thru the WiFi Router to the internet. To access other PC's Windows "Files & Data" from a "Mac" & vice versa, is a slightly different matter.. but still easy to set up. The links below will be of assistance to you in setting it all up. www.macdevcenter.com/pub/a/mac/2002/11/19/mac_pc.html - 26k lifehacker.com/software/networking/connect-your-mac-to-a-windows-network-211108.php The best way to connect up a Modem & separate WiFi Router... is: Connect Modem to Router, Router to A "Main" PC, via Ethernet cable. (Router set to DCHP Server & assign an SSID) All Other PC's connect to the "WiFi Router". After setting up an "Unsecured Network" & when & after, it is all working. THEN one can set up WEP security keys for the WiFi network.

It sounds like you have lost the connection with the ISP
Contact your cable provider and see if you can get a reset on the CMTS
They provided. the reset your router. To default and use the software to set up the router for the different wireless device you have by either MAC address or by name. You will have to log into the router to do this. using either 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1 depending how your manufacturer of the router you have has configured it. You may also ask your provider for assistance for the main computer ( PC).

My internet won't go wireless


routher cable must be connected to the Internet, then connect the cable routher - pc and run your browser in order to configure the connection. check that you have enabled wifi, save the settings and check if it works. Make sure that your ISP does not grant the Internet through the network adapter MAC address, in which case you will need to change your MAC address on the routhera which you used previously.

Router not recognizing internet connection from cable modem.


No, you do not need a Hub. You also should not need to add the mac address. On the router, you need to enable DHCP so that your PC can get its IP address from your router. Then try your reboot again. Modem------------->Router----------------->PC. Wait about 1 minute between each device for them to sync up. Make sure that your PC IP settings are set on obtain IP address automatically under Control Panel----->Network Settings

Local only on wireless, dont know how to change it.


I had the same problem, but then I found out that I was connected to the hamatchi server at the same time what somehow prevented me from using the internet. So just watch that you are connected to only one network, might help.

We recently did the same thing, on the MAC there is a Network assistant which asks how you want to connect, choose Connect to my Local Area Network. Should connect immediately.

The PC and Mac don't interact when they are connected to the router. The router provides a DHCP server, and the PC and Mac should simply log in to the router and run fine. If the router is a new addition too, you'll need to connect the WAN port on the router to your DSL or Cable Modem's ethernet port... and then hook up the computers to any of the open ethernet ports on the router. An ethernet port looks like an extra large phone cable connector.
