If there is only 1 ethernet port on your router it sounds like this is the port for your modem to connect to your router and that your router is only built for wireless. If you want to connect computers via ethernet cable you will need either a new router with a 4 port switch or a new wireless router with a 4 port switch. (you can get more than 4 ports if you have more that 4 computers).
For this, you have two types of connection
1. LAN_LAN (ethernet to ethernet) -->wireless router is acting as a switch
2. LAN_WAN (ethernet to internet)-->wireless router is acting as a wireless router
in this case, you need the LAN_LAN connection
plug an ethernet cable from the ethernet port on the wired router and connect the other end of that cabl to the ethernet port on the wireless router
log-on to the setup page of the wireless router, do this while the wired router is turned off.
-open your internet browser, type 192.168.0.1 on the address bar. Then type the username & password for the router ( default admin as the username, password : ).
Under the setup tab, click manual configuration. Then click network settings, change the router ip address to 192.168.0.5 & disable the DHCP server. save the settings. Just personalize the wireless network.
well i think u have to get a new wireless router because the router u r using right now is an adsl router u cannot use that router for this perpose because this router does not have an ethernet WAN port. the WAN port available on the back of this router is for telephone line. i'll suggest to get a new router. try to get linksys router because linksys router r more flexible.
Yes, all you need is a PCI ethernet card. You can pick them up rather cheap. Here is one. You basically plug it into an available PCI port on the inside of your computer. If XP doesn't automatically install it, just insert the included CD with the drivers on it and XP will do the rest. And remember to please give this answer a good rating of fixya. Thanks.
Hi Sherry - The etherport port on your modem should be connected to the WAN port on your router. You then connect your pc to one of the 4 ethernet ports on the router. If this answers your question PLEASE rate this as fixed. If you need more help just add a comment and I'll be happy to assist you further. Thanks.
1. Make sure the wireless is disabled when you're doing that. It might cause a confusion between the wired and wireless connection.
2. Try to plug it at other ports (1-4)
3. Try another known working ethernet or CAT-5 cable.
4. Set the laptop's LAN card's speed to 10-hald duplex.
I have this router, you do not need two ports for your pc. one port marked internet goes into your modem then the other ports marked 1-4 goes into your pc. it doesnt matter what one you plug it into. heres a little diagram
MODEM---------> LINKSYS ROUTER ------------> PC ethernet port.
(note: the cable from the modem to router and router to pc is a straight through cable, AKA Patch Cable. )
