Re: Help with home networking

There is one ethernet connection to the modem which supports one computer. I have this device with my ATT Yahoo service.

This simplest however possibly undesirable option would be to take turns using the single connection.

I added a router between the modem and my computers and I can wire up to 4 computers to the router connected to the modem.

WIreless routers (as was mine) often have 4 wired ports for multiple machines connected by wire and can accomodate additional machines wirelessly.

The first set of answers you can probably give me to assist you is the make and model of the two computers you want to connect as well as the name of your internet service provider or even better a link to their help/support web site.

If you decided to connect them with a wire could you place a wire safely (like along a wall to connect both computers)?

Second option is connect wirelessly one or both computers the information already provided.

The answer to the above question will affect the router you choose to purchase to connect the machines.

If necessary there is a means to connect the second machine to the first and the first to the internet without a router however unless you already have the hardware and are willing to have the first machine on for the second to use the internet the cost of parts for this solution will likely be the same as for the router and it is not very flexible if you want to add another machine.

I would be happy to analyze the above alternatives and provide you a recommendation to move forward -- however to do so I need you to add a comment to this request with the information about your computers and your Internet service provider. and whether or not a wire only solution works for you. Look forward to the receiving the information and providing you some options.

If you are using USB connection to connect to the modem, you need the installation disc. If you are using NIC port (network port), you do not need the disc.

How to set dsl modem

You go to start menu and access the Control Panel. Open Network Connections and make sure the LAN connection is enabled. If not, right click and select Enable. After confirming LAN connection, then go back a page and click Internet Options. Then the page will automatically show you the General Tab. Type in (or verify) home page in the window. eg. . Then select Connections Tab. Remove any connections that appear in the window below. Below that on the same page, select LAN Settings. Check the Automatically Detect option.

If your internet service is active the window will open to your home page. Good Luck!

I just bought a SpeedStream 4100 modem

if you brought the wireless new from a vendor. you don't need to configure it. unless you want to.
but if you brought a used one (in you case). you have to configure it. You need to get inside (software wise) of the modem. to do that you need login name and password to start with. if you don't have it, please call or e-mail the guy you brought the modem from.
then you have to configure the security for the wireless, unless you want everyone under sun to access your modem via wireless.
search on the web, you should come away with a user manual for the unit.

I cannt play wolrd of warcraft online but i go and check my and things like that should be close enough to get you started (they don't have pictures for the 4200). Check the link for the downloader too - you'll need those ports forwarded if you want to download upgrades. (And you probably can't get both the desktop and the laptop playing at the same time - a port can only be forwarded to one computer at a time.)
