Problems setting up new macs and a new wireless system with a PC

Hi, I have got a Dell PC currently connected to Tiscali broadband. We have just bought 2 MacBook Pros and want to use these and get rid of the PC. Currently we have a wired broadband connection and I have tried to convert this to wireless from the PC using a Belkin G4 modem router which doesn't seem to work. I also have airport express for the Macs. Should I just start from scratch with the Macs or do I have to get the PC to set up the wireless system first? its a chicken and egg situation and I know very little about IT. All I want at the end of the day is 2 macs that are wireless and no PC but can't figure out what order to do things in - can anyone help?

The MAC address of the network card on the PC is probably registered with Tiscali. The easiest thing to do is to Connect the Belkin router to the internet, then go into the config and clone the MAC address of the windows PC. Once this is done, then you can either plug in the airport express, or configure wifi for the Macs from the belkin.

I have just 2 computers currently connected to my Dell Power connect 2124...One is accessing the internet just fine but the other cannot acquire an ip.....I put new ends on the cable but stll no soultion


I assume you have connected your switch to any broadband router and then trying to access multiple systems at the sametime.
This is not possible if NAT (Network Address Translation) is not enabled on your broadband router.

Hi I'm looking to install a DG834G router to give wireless access but the only instal disc is from AOL and I'm not with them anymore, I have tiscali broadband. How do install the router if it won't plug...


Try NOT using any install disk.

Turn the TISCALI router off.
Turn the NetGear off.

Use an Ethernet cable to connect from the LAN port on the TISCALI router to the WAN port on the router.

Use another Ethenet cable to connect from one LAN port on the router to the network-port on your computer.

Turn the TISCALI on. Wait 60 seconds.
Turn the NetGear on. Wait 60 seconds.
Restart your computer.
Click Start
Click Run
Type CMD
Press Enter
Type IPCONFIG
Press Enter
Look for output like: Default Gateway....192.168.123.456
Note that the '123.456' will be some other numbers.
Start Internet Explorer.
Type http://192.168.123.456 (substitute the current values)
Login to the web-server running on the router.
Run the "Wireless Networking Setup Wizard"
to configure a SSID, an encryption-level (use 'WPA')
and a password for your network.
After the router restarts, you should be able to get wireless access, using the SSID and password that you configured your router to use.

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)

Till now i can not get tiscali working in my computer. is still dificult to set broadband. since got tiscali broadband i have never used it, but iam still paying. I tried to contact you over the phone but...


You're not really acting sensible, and you have not described what is difficult about uh...setting broadband. Setting it up, I suppose. I mean, if you set it up and then some thugs come by and rip up the cords, that would really set your case apart. Which is weird for country 79...Belize or Brazil? Have a friend whose Tiscali service works show you what her configuration is so you can copy what isn't privately hers, and indicate what works for her, and help call the company and find out what's going on, rather than wait.

No connection


what you should have bought was a ADSL modem/router, but if you only have a router, try the following:- go to the TCP/IP properties of your network card and ensure that it is set as obtain ip address automatically, restart the pc. Connect modem to the router then connect your router via rj45 cable to your pc, then type 192.168.1.254(This should be the default gateway) into your internet browser to get to the router settings. Look for DHCP and enable it to give your pc an automatic ip address and save settings. You should now have a 100MBPS connection to the router, if you have got a modem router ensure that you have the correct Tiscali settings inputed.
