There are two ways you can share that connection - wired or wireless.
Obviously, if you ran another ethernet cable from the router to the other pc, it would be connected. But you could also hard wire that ethernet cable into the house, using cat5e cable and modular connectors mounted into wall receptacles, just like your phone jack. If you can easily run the wire under the floor or through an attic, it would provide the fastest link for the pc in the other room.
If that's too much work, or not an option, you'll need to buy a wireless pci card for that pc. Make sure you have an empty pci slot in the back of the computer, then simply install the wireless card, which will usually have an antennae built into it, and configure the pc to recognize the router.
You may find this page full of helpful information. Please take a look at the article on networking computers running different versions of windows. Here's another link for xp. And this great site may answer some of the technical questions about routers, access points, etc.
Have fun, and good luck.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

HOW TO USE INTERNET IN MORE THAN ONE PC FROM LINKSYS WIRELESS G B


You have two ways on how you can get other computer online through this router. First, you can wired them (using an Ethernet cable) to one of the Ethernet ports on the back of the router. They are the ones labeled 1, 2, 3, and 4.

Second is through wireless, but those computers that will connect through wireless must also have a wireless adapter to be able to pick up the signal that this router is broadcasting.

WIFI not working with Linksys wireless-g broadband router/Comcast


Unplugging the wireless router and connecting it again should not have altered the wireless connection/configuration. You have connected the cables correctly because the Internet works when you connect a LAN cable to the router.
The Linksys wireless configuration or the wireless card configuration in the computer was changed it to lose the wireless connection. The wireless card configuration needs to be changed to match the wireless router's settings or change the Linksys with new configuration settings and configure the wireless card accordingly.

Connecting Laptop wireless and Desktop wired to the router


Do you need to see the desktop or just share folders from each other? If the latter then you need to do the following:

Use Windows Explorer and select a folder you want to share. Right click and select sharing and security.

On the sharing tab click on Share this folder. Enter a share name ( I like to enter the PC name _folder name; Rick1_Downloads)

Click on Permissions. If your ok with everyone using the PC's and Laptops having access then highlight Everyone and click on Full Control.

Do this on each PC and Laptop.

That should be it or darned near close.

Using my linskys router


If you have internet through a cellphone, it doesn't sound like the router can help you-- it's meant to split up a wired broadband connection like cable internet or DSL internet from your home phone lines. the router certainly was built to let you share a broadbank net connection-- you didnt mention if you have one or not-- not a cellphone connection... you might have to spring for another card if you need to stick with just the cellphone connection.

run the telephone line from your modem into the wall jack. From the modem connect a network cable (cat5) into the back ( via the uplink port) of your linksys router . Your router can now route the IP from the modem.

Hi,

It really depends on what "modem" Orange provided you with and how your personal PC is connected to the modem.

If the "modem" provided by Orange uses WiFi (such as Livebox) networking, then it is a matter of setting up your daighter's laptop to access and use the Livebox WiFi Network. In this case no router is needed since your modem is also a router.

If your PC is connected via Ethernet port to the "modem" and Orange's "modem" is a single Ethernet output port, you would need an AP/Router (Wireless since I am presuming the your daughter's laptop would be accessing the Internet wirelessly) such as the LinkSys WRT54G.

If your PC is connected via USB port to the "modem" and Orange's "modem" has only a USB output port (no Ethernet), you need to make your PC as the default gateway/software router and share your PC's Internet connection. If you are connecting your daughter's laptop using Ethernet cable, then you don't need a WiFi AP/Router but an ordinary hub. If on the other hand the new laptop would connect wirelessly, you would still need something like the WRT54G.

Hope that this be of some help/idea. Pls post again how things turned out or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.
