Re: Hooking up a 2nd computer upstairs with the router...

In order to setup a second computer with your router you need to first make certain that you have the following:

The second PC must have a wireless adapter. Determine if you have security setup for your network. Meaning determine if you have a wep, wpa, etc. setup. This is a security Hexidecimal encryption that allows only the administrator (you) of the network the ability to place other devices onto your network. You then need to access the web-based tool that allows you to setup and or change settings. Any more questions please feel free to ask I could walk you through it step by step.

So I really need help. I have a Linksys (WRT54GS) wireless router upstairs connected to the internet, printers, etc. and a Netgear (WGT624) downstairs connected to a desktop, xbox and laptop. I don't want...

More information is needed.
Is the 'WAN' port on the Netgear router connected to anything?
(cable-modem? DSL-modem?)

How many friends will come over at the same time?
How many 'LAN' ports are on the Linksys? How many ports are "free" ?
How many 'LAN' ports are on the Netgaear? How many ports are "free" ?
How many "spare" Ethernet cables do you have?

Is your goal to provide computer-to-computer connectivity,
or are you just trying to provide Internet access for everybody?

If you are "downstairs", is the wireless signal from the "upstairs" router strong-enough to provide wireless coverage "downstairs"?

If you are "upstairs", is the wireless signal from the "downstairs" router strong-enough to provide wireless coverage "upstairs"?

Cant connect to internet with main computer, one upstairs is fine

The upstairs computer is wired or wireless ?

If the upstairs computer is working then the router must be working properly.
Check the connection between the downstairs computer and the router.
If it is a wireless computer then check the wireless connection status on that computer.

Trying to connect a wired network wirelessly to a router

No. You'll need to run a "cross-over" Ethernet cable from one of the "LAN" ports on the "downstairs" router, connecting to the "WAN" port on another router that you will need to buy, and place "upstairs", and connect the 4 devices to the 4 "LAN" ports.

Or, run a long "straight-through" Ethernet cable from your DSL-modem (or cable-modem) that is "downstairs", and move your wireless router "upstairs", and connect the 4 devices to the router's "LAN" ports.
Your laptop "downstairs" should still be able to connect (wirelessly) to the wireless-router that is "upstairs".

My second computer downstairs can not make a connection to the internet via my wireless router that is connected to my first computer upstairs

to difficult for explain that your problem. Wireless Router must be set into DHCP mode enabled. And your 1st laptop and 2nd computer have to been set into "Obtain an IP address automatically".
Don't forget to set your Wireless Router in section DNS server, IP range for wireless connectivity, and IP address from your adsl link.
If you confuse, you must call by phone, IT expert for do this...

Cannot get internet connection on pc with wireless adapter

The LAN will really tell you that its disconnected since your computer downstairs is not connected with a cable to the router, the only problem here is the wireless PCI adapter is not installed properly, try to run again the setup CD for the adapter and make sure you restart the computer when the installation is complete...

Lost internet connection to my 2nd wireless p.c

Suggestion: Move your router. Your PC 3 appears to be in a 'dead zone' so to speak.

Slow connection

Your slow connection could be affected by poor location wireless router (therefore poor signal strength), electrical interference, or even someone else with a wireless router transmitting on the same channel as your wireless router.
Try relocating your router away from solid walls, and/or move your computer or router to another location.
If your connection speed varies, could be electrical interference with appliance/s in your house, turn off all appliances, test your internet speed connecting then turn on one appliance at a time to determine which appliance is at fault (could have a faulty capacitor in the appliance)

Connection keeps going on and off

check the ip addresses with the pc downstairs and see if all the pc's have the same default gateway. If not check your network card or network cable.
