As long as both computers are connected to the same network then yes, you can use the LAN to play games

Router or switch? I'm getting cable internet service in a couple days. The modem will only have one ethernet output but I have multiple PCs and xbox 360s in the house. My question is: Will I be able to...


Hello wetgrass 80,

Switches create a network. Routers connect networks. A router links computers to the Internet, so users can share the connection. A router acts as a dispatcher, choosing the best path for information to travel so it's received quickly.

So, you need a router. Be sure to buy one with wireless connection (wi-fi) so you can connect other gadgets too such as cellphones, psp, netbook, etc..

I hope this helped you.
You can rate my answer if you appreciate my help.
Thanks!

How many pc's, laptop's & printer's can i link up to belkin n1 vision wireless router model f5d8232-4


You can uplink a fairly good number of PCs or laptops with Belkin N1 as it supports high bandwidth. Keep in mind that upon adding every new PC, the overall bandwidth for the other PCs is reduced. If the PCs/ laptops do not require much bandwidth, you can connect / add more PCs to the network.
Generally, I have uplinked upto 10-15 clients to one router and the network worked just fine. It all depends upon the network environment and the bandwidth usage by each client PC. If the PCs are using just email and simple internet browsing (and remain idle for most of the time), you can add more clients to your network as not all the systems consume network resources at the same time.

Hope it helps! Good Luck!

I can not get by daughters compute to hook up to my netgear wireless router. My other computers had no problem in getting connected. We have tried everything and can not get it to take the router


Hello
Have you tried going to control panel,network and sharing center.

Once there, make sure all pcs are on the same network,either homgroup or public.

Your daughters needs to be on the same network as the others.Also be sure the firewall is not blocking any connections.

You may also want to reboot the router do this by...
1 shut down all pcs
2 Unplug all cables from router including power.
3 Let router set for a min then plug all cables back in and power up
4 Once you get stedy lights on router restart pcs.

Sir can i connect two pcs one desktop and other laptop for sharing files bw the two and playing games bw them


There are a couple of ways you can network two computers together.
Each computer must have a network card installed together with the LAN card drivers. The two computers needs to be connected to a network hub and these computers need to be set up on the same workgroup name.
Using a network hub will allow more the two computers to be connected to a network and the number of computers that can be installed on this network depends upon the number of available ports on the network hub.
You can use a Crossover LAN cable to connect the two computers together and you won't need a network hub.

What is it used for?


Hello,
You can use this wireless router to connect different wireless devices together. Each device with a wireless network card (computer, phone, gaming system, printer, etc.) can connect to the router without a cable. This will form a network where information can be shared.
The main purpose people use this for is to connect their network to the internet. As long as the router is connected to your internet, every other wireless device can also connect.
Thanks,
Pat

Only 2 of our PCs can connect to our Linksys WRT150N router


No. All routers will support up to 254 devices or computers.
1. Check that the third computer is set to automatically get a IP address (called DHCP).
2. Check to make sure there are blinking lights on the back of the computer where the network cable connects.
3. network speed. your computer should be set to auto detect speed. You may have to edit the properties of your network adapter to set it this way.

If this is about a wireless setup, wireless can be touchy and sometimes difficult to get connected.
Types of wireless - older computers may not be able to connect to newer wireless routers for example it may use 802.11 B, and your router is set to only use G.


Its also possible that your setup is such that your ISP provides Internet Addresses, and they only give you two. If so, it will require you to configure your router so that all of the client computer are on the LAN.

If you can proide more info, I can help.

Wired router connection


Hi,

To my knowledge, yes. "dial-up internet" connotes standard modem attached to a computer unlike DSL modems (non USB) that are stand alone. Therefore the dial-up internet modem should be connected to a single computer. That PC then would have to enable its Internet Sharing for others in the network to access the Internet. This is accomplished by hooking all the PCs to a single network using a hub/switch. The router can perform this function (hub), however, all the PCs in the network would have to use for their Default Gateway IP address not that of the router but that of the PC with the dial-up internet modem. Having said that, it would then be necessary to use static IP adds in all the PCs. The built-in firewall and DHCP features of the router would not be necessary.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
