Most likely, your ISP only allows a single MAC address to connect to them. To make this work with multiple computers you'll need a router that can do MAC address cloning, i.e. it reads the MAC address off of the computer that works and presents this to the ISP in all cases even when the request comes from different MAC address.

The MAC address is unique and set at the factory for each ethernet card so it's not something you can or should attempt to change. If you were able to change the MAC address on the second computer to match the first you would break your network rather than fix the problem.

It is also possible that you are using fixed ip addresses and simply need to configure the NIC on the new computer. If you check the IP v4 settings for the old computer and they have an explicit address for the card then this is is the issue. If so, simply configure the new computer to match the old computer but make sure the last of the four numbers in the ip address is something between 1 and 254 that does not match the first computer or the gateway address.

I have two ParkerVision WR1500 4-port Wireless DSL/Cable Routers. The first one I have connected my Ethernet Cable from my modem to the WAN port. This is where I get my Internet Signal. My understanding...


You won't get internet connection that way because there is no connection between the first parkervision and the 2nd one.
Best way is use only one parkervision router. Connect WAN port to modem for internet, 1st lan port connect to your pc and 2nd lan port connect to 2nd pc in other room. 2nd way is, use only one parkervision. Connect WAN port to modem for internet, 1st lan port connect to your pc, setup wireless SSID and connect your 2nd pc to this router for internet wirelessly. Assuming your 2nd pc has wireless capability.

Cannot connect to internet thru ethernet jack on computer


It could be. Check your Device Manager and make sure the device isn't disabled. Also each adapter has its own TCP/IP settings so make sure yours on your ethernet adapter are set the same as your USB adapter that is working. If it does turn out to be bad you can always add a new ethernet card for cheap.

No internet connection


Have to reinstall ethernet driver. Need to use a usb wireless to get online, then choose search online for driver, or right click the ethernet adapter in device manager and choose device ID and search for driver on another computer and then install it on yours.

Set up 2 wireless routers, 1st for printer, 2nd for internet


You should only need one wireless router for everything. The purpose of the router is to "route" multiple devices together. Your set-up should be something like this:

Modem connected to wireless router via Ethernet cable.
Wireless router broadcasting wireless internet connection.
Computer(s) connected to wireless router via cable or wireless adapter.
Computer with network printer sharing enabled.
Turn on wireless printer.
You should be able to detect the printer via Windows.

No Internet With New Router, Computer, or Adapter


This document is relevant if you had an Internet connection, but lost it when: * Adding a router to your network, or * Using a different Ethernet adapter card or computer than the one your ISP used during installation. Use ISP Configuration to see whether you need to "spoof a MAC address" to connect to your ISP. If so, follow the instructions in this document. If the Ethernet card that was used during ISP installation is not available, you may need to register the new Ethernet card's MAC address with your ISP for the following to work. MAC address stands for Media Access Control address (not "Macintosh computer"!), a unique number built into modems, routers and other network hardware. It ensures that one piece of equipment is not mistaken for another one. Some ISPs validate your connection by checking the MAC address of the Ethernet adapter in computer that was registered during ISP installation. If you add a router or change computer or Ethernet adapter, these ISPs will drop your Internet connection, because they find the MAC address of the newly added router or adapter, instead of the one they expect. To fix this, change the router to report the Ethernet adapter's MAC, instead of its own. This is called "spoofing the MAC address". To find a PC's or Macintosh's MAC address, see How to Find an Adapter's MAC address : http://www.fixya.com/ThreadView.aspx?prdid=252225&thid=102075. To Spoof a MAC Address 1. Connect the computer that your ISP's installers used to establish Internet connection to the router. If you are unsure which computer was used, call your ISP, and ask what MAC address was registered. Then, using the instructions in the box below find the computer whose MAC address matches their records. 2. Disconnect other computers from the router. (If you do not want to disconnect other computers, you need to know the adapter's MAC address, as described in the box below. Then, in step 6, type Use This MAC Address, entering the adapter's address.) 3. In an Internet browser type the address 192.168.0.1. 4. Type admin for the username, password for the password, and click OK. 5. Go to the Basic Settings > Router Mac Address. 6. Select Use Computer MAC Address. 7. Click Apply. This automatically gives the router the computer's MAC address. 8. Click Test to make sure you are connected. If you are not connected, contact your ISP.
