You can network both of these machines together so they share hard drive info and also the internet connection from the modem too,


What operating systems are loaded on each machine thanks

XP and Vista are very different so we need to know to provide the correct solution for you.

Does your modem have 4 ports on the back?
do you have a network switch?4 ports?

XP ------->>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

Go to start
then my computer
network places
veiw network connection
(could be on or off,need to turn this on and
make sure modem is connected to the machines or network.)

click on set up new network wizard
do this on both machines at the same time
go all the way thru to the end and select to just finish the wizard at the end

shut down and restart -

Go back to network places and check the new settings your have just set up,
you should see the computers on the network now and should be able to share across the network too .
network shared files to network shared files
from computer 1 to computer 2.

Check your internet connections too....

Hope this helps ,,,,
Need more help let me know,

Cheers Misterdj

First you need to delete your phonenumber from this post. This is a public post accessible from all over the globe.
Second you need to contact your ISP with this problem. It might be that your ADSL modem isn't compatible or wrongly configured for your present connection.

Bought second hand d-link524 is this adsl or adsl2 not sure

The Dlink DI-524 is a router, which is used behind a modem to connect multiple machines to a single internet modem. You will still need a some sort of modem whether it be DSL or cable.

Compatibility with high speed ADSL2 Broadband

Yes, Linksys WRT160N is 100% compatible with ADSL2. Linksys WRT160N is a Broadband router.

you will not be able to use the linksys WRT160N, as an ADSL2 modem router. you should be using an ADSL2 Modem separately and connect the cable from the modem to the Linksys WRT160N. Hope this clarify the doubt.

My compaq presario V2000 will only connect to dialup

To connect to your DSL internet you will need an ethernet port or wireless card on your laptop. Your laptop should have an ethernet port, it will look like a phone jack but a little bigger. In the off chance that you don't have an ethernet port on your laptop you can also purchase an ethernet to usb adpater. You may have a wireless card installed on your laptop, but if not you can purchase a usb wireless adapter. To use your internet wirelessly in your home you'll also need a wireless router. All of these things can be purchased at your local electronics store (walmart, best buy, kmart, frys) and usually are fairly easy to setup with the included instructions.

Not being able to connect to Internet still

  1. Check the wireless adapter of your laptop. To do that, go to control panel then go click on System then go to Device manager.
  2. On Device Manager window, look for Network adapter. Check all the Network adapters installed to your laptop.
  3. Look for the wireless adapter installed in your laptop. Once you found it, right click on it and then click properties.
  4. Under the general tab, look for Device status.
  5. Make sure that the wi-fi button of your laptop is enabled.
Hope this helps!

Connect another laptop using Vista operation system to my wireless network

thank u for the clarification..if it says "low signal strength" then u will have to reduce the distance between the laptop and the wireless router..also please ensure there are no big objects,walls etc between the two..u can get better signal strength by doing these..also other nearby wireless networks and cordless phones can hamper with signal..hope it helps!regards!
