Question about Computers & Internet
I have 3 computers, all ar going threw a linksys router to a cable modem.
All have internet access!
computer 1 has a printer that is set to share!
computer 2 and 3 I have been sucessfule in seting up a home network.
but when I run Network setup wizard (win XP) it asks to select conection method. I do so, then it asks for secripton and name, then network name, I also enter this.now it asks file and print sharing question, I also answer yes.
It says ready to apply network setting, I hit NEXT and it begins to set it up!
then it stops and says: cannot complete network setup wizard.
error occured during cinfiguration of the network on this computer.
you can configure network manualy or run setup with differnt settings!
I have tried every setting there is and dont know how to manually set up!
I have internet on all 3 comps!
the other 2 comps see the #1 computer but can not find a pathway to it!
i have had 2 diff motherboards on this comp and both did same thing.
if you need anyother info please just ask!
Sounds like something is not right with the sharing... Assuming that computer 1 (the computer with the printer) is sharing and everything is set correctly, I would change the workgroup name. Instead of using "MSHOME" use say some basic word like "example" or some other name.
Ironically for my workgroup here I call it "StarWars"
needless to say my printers and everything shares just perfect. When you use "MShome" there's restrictions on what XP professional and XP home machines see on the network. I changed the workgroup name and that solved that problem.
Be sure to put all computers on the same workgroup name that you pick. You can even choose your first name if you want.

NOTE: The image may vary depending on the computer and modem you're using.
Connecting the Devices Together
After confirming the Internet connection through the modem, connect the modem to the Internet port of the router; connect the computer to any of the four Ethernet ports at the back of the router. For instructions, click here.
Checking the Router's LEDs
After connecting the devices together, check the lights on the front panel of the router. Ensure that the Internet light, as well as numbered light corresponding to the Ethernet port where the computer is connected, is lit. For further instructions, click here.
Setting Up a Linksys Router for Cable Internet Connection
Access the router's web-based setup page. For instructions, click here.
NOTE: If you are using a Mac computer to access the router's web-based setup page, click here.
On the Setup tab, click the MAC Address Clone sub-tab.
Select Enabled then click Clone My PC's MAC.
Click Save Settings.
Click the Status tab.
Check the Internet IP Address. If the Internet IP Address has numbers, this means the router has been properly configured. You should now be able to access the Internet. If you're still unable to access the Internet, powercycle the modem, the router and then restart the computer.
NOTE: If the IP address is still 0.0.0.0, click IP Address Release then, click IP Address Renew. If this does not change the IP Address, powercycle the modem, the router and then restart the computer.

NOTE: It is
advisable to connect the computer to one of the Ethernet (1, 2, 3 or 4)
ports when setting up the router for the first time. If you have
successfully configured the router using a wireless computer, unplug the
Ethernet cable which connects the computer to the router for you to
have wireless Internet connection. For instructions on how to connect
the wireless computer to go online using the Linksys router, click here.
Make sure the power adapter is plugged in to an available power outlet.
Check if the corresponding LEDs on the router are lit. For instructions, click here.
