It could be a difference configuration of the ethernet adapters on each machine.

Try this from each machine when connected to the cable.
(assumes Windows XP)

Click Start then All Programs then Accessories then Command Prompt A new window will open -- in that window type the following

ipconfig /all

If this works copy the following for each adapter (there may be more than one per machine)

IP Address
Subnet Mask
Default Gateway
DNS Address(es) may be more than one

Put the answers in a comment to this problem and I will attempt to provide additional steps to resolve the issue.

one possibility --
If you loaded your DNS addresses into the laptop's adapter configuration and not into the desktop's laptop configuration that could be the issue.

There could be other issues the ipconfig answers should narrow down the problem so a specific solution can be given.

    you issued the command on each machine when attached to the router with the cable

    ipconfig /all

    PS there should be no space between the / and the all it appears UI made a typo before.

    And you did not get an IP address or Subnet Mask or Default Gateway or DNS addresses on either machine?

  • david Dec 24, 2007

    When you did ipconfig did you get IP Address, Subnet Mask, Default Gateway, and DNS Address? If so please tell me what they were. Those other two responses are normal.

    I almost bet you are missing DNS addresses in the one machine.

    Try this command in the command window you used for ipconfig before on both machines

    Replace with your router address if you know it



    They will either tineout 4 times or display elapsed time 4 times.

    Let me know the one that does not timeout

    Do these on both machines.

Try with a shorter enet cable and see if you get internet, if you are able to get internet with a shorter cable then the cable might not be working fine. Else get a wireless card installed on your computer since the 2wire modem has wireless connectivity. It would be more easy and convenient to connect to wireless using the 2 wire modem.
