I do not know what type of cable and hoe to hook to pc


Most modern computers have a Network Interface Card (NIC) that used an industry standard RJ45 network jack (8 wire connection similar to a telephone RJ11 connector)
Most people now have broadband service (Cable Modem or DSL Modem) that has RJ45 connections. you also may have a Router between the computer and the Modem to share that internet connection with other computers. The router will also have RJ45 connections. Routers can also be wireless, and you can connect via 802.11 A/B/G/N wireless connection if your computer has an 802.11 standard wireless card.
So, once you detail the brand and model computer and the type fo network conenction/equipment you have, I can give more detailed answers.

I got 1 modem (pldt dsl) cdrking wireless router and 2 desktop pc. i can connect to the internet in my host pc but unable to access the internet on the 2nd pc. when enabling the LAN on the 2nd pc it says...


It could be a faulty wiring connection from the ethernet cable to the RJ45 (plug). Exchange the cables from your PC1 and PC2 to confirm it. If that worked then you can either buy another set of cable (just make sure to try it in the store first). Or if you have a wire cutter especially made for ethernet cables, then just cut the RJ45 and replace it with a new one. You can buy those on CD-R king too.

How can i connect my desktop computer to the internet plz i need someone to help


Currently, the most common way to connect a desktop system to the internet, is by using the network jack to connect to a broadband cable modem or DSL modem. To do either you must have the service from either you cable provider or phone company (For DSL) and have the modem device for the service. Fees run $20 to $50 a month depending on speed you subscribe.
You connect the device to the system using a CAT5 network cable to a RJ45 (8 wire telephone type jack). Some Cable/DSL modems also have USB connection capability for the few systems these days that do not have a built in RJ45 connector To use them, you install the associated software, then connect the USB cable when prompted.
If you don't have Cable/DSL then dial up telephone modem is the next option, this requires a telephone modem that has an RJ11c telephone cord jack connection, most current computers only have a telephone modem as an option, but they can still be bought for around $20 and you will require a dial up internet service (Few remain, one is Netzero in the USA)

I have a Dynamode wireless router which i have configured however the cable which came with it does not fit into telephone connection. What other cable do i require


The nework cable that came with the wireless router has RJ45 connectors (8 wire cable) and the telephone cable has narrower connectors RJ11 (4 wire cable) or RJ12 (6 wire cable - less commonly used).
I assume the Dynamode wireless router does not have a built-in modem and therefore needs to be connected to a broadband modem.
If broadband modem is a cable or DSL type, the broadband modem is connected to the Dynamode WAN/Internet socket with a RJ45 LAN cable.
If you have a broadband DSL modem you need a RJ11 phone cable to connect the moden to the phone socket.

Router with RJ45 cable port available


Nowadays most routers come with RJ45 connectors. That is a connector for network cable.
You might be talking about a serial port, found on many security systems.
If you want to connect the security system, you need a serial cable to connect the security system with your computer, and thru a specialized software (more certain provided by the security equipment, be able to perform the task you have in mind.

Adding another computer to network


You can have 4 PCs connecting to your 2 wire 2701hgv or 2700hgv wired or wirelessly. Make sure the DSL light and the internet light is green and lighted up
For wired connection, just plug in the RJ45 cable to the ethernet 1,2,3, or 4 and the other end of the RJ45 cable on your laptop LAN card or network adaptor
For wireless connectivity, SSID is 2wire followed by the last 3 digits of the SN(or serial number) and the WEP key is located at the bottom of the 2wire modem in between 2 bar codes in square brackets. If the WEP key and the SSID was changed before in the modem page, go to the modem page and see what is the latest SSID and WEP key using RJ45 cable connected

Hello, The wire from your cable modem plugs into the WAN (labelled "connect to modem") port on your wireless router. You then need to install the software on your PC to set up the router.
