Question about Computers & Internet
I have a linksys router and it was working until we got two different computers, and now I don't even know if I am setting it up right, i don't have a manuel any more, please hel;
The router should change your set up all too much, but just incase... I want to cover how the set up SHOULD be from the wall to the computers.
From the wall, (a phone wire for DSL or cable wire for cable internet) should go to the modem.
From the modem, a single ethernet line should go to your router.
From the router, since you have 2 computers, will have a single line going to each computer (2 lines coming from the router, one to each computer).
Unless the router was only issuing a single IP address (I don't expect you to know this) then there is no reason why both computers are not working.
If your setup is as above and it is still not working, then unplug both the router and the modem for about 10 or so seconds and plug them back in (can pull the power from either the back of each unit or at the outlet... doesn't matter) Doing this gives the modem/router to restart fresh.
If this does not solve your problem, please comment and I'll try to assist you further.
