Open your control panel then open the network wizard do also to the other computer. note: in order to have a network the your work group name should be the same e.g. MSHOME.

DGN2000 router problem. I have 2 pc connected on the router and only the main one has access to the internet. Am i doing something wrong with the settings or does my router has a problem? Is it true that...

I'm not aware of any problem with the DGN2000 that only lets you connect 1 computer (If it was I dont think they would sell many and EVERYBODY would know about it)

Anyway - try swapping the network leads over (remember which port is the "live" one) does the other PC now have internet access and the 1st one not?

if the 2nd pc DOES have internet access the yes you have a suspect router.
if the 1st computer DOESN'T have Internet access you have suspect router.

if the 2nd pc DOESN't have internet access but the 1st pc DOES - then the problem is something on the 2nd pc.

Hope this helps.

You need to make sure the password is entered correctly as well as the settings you have setup on the router as like WEP or WPA match the same settings your computer is recieving. Worse come to worse you can call clear internet and can see if they can help you

Internet light and port light blink constantly no internet access

Sounds like 2 things, either one something is really really using your internet connection or you may try to press the reset button on the back of the router to bring it back to defaults.

if you have any settings in the router it WILL reset them to defaults. I.E. if you connect wirelessly to it you will need to set it back up.

If it doesn't work and the same situation happens you may need to try and plug your computer directly into the internet connection and see if you can get online that way. if it works that way you know it is the router. if it doesn't work it is something on the computer or the cords between the router and the computer

I have comcast and as soon as i hookup the Zonet router zsr0104cp i dont have the internet on either of my computers

If you connect the computer to the modem, it works. but it does not work with the router. You will need to check the settings of the router. For this you will need to access the router set up. Your ISP is comcast. The computer which is online when connected to the router is your main computer. you will need to use that computer to set up the router. Click Here for step by step solutions

Need to boost my wireless signal for remote laptop

It's almost a DIY deal, but how close are you to Corpus?

The unit you need is a Wireless access point. My favorite, fairly inexpensive, WAP is made by TP Link.

You can start with one, at ***********'s, add an external antenna, and set it up as a client pointing to your wireless internet connection. If that doesn't work, you duplicate the equipment set up as a wireless access point at your location.

Post back if you need purchasing help or are near Corpus.

A router is basically a mini-computer that splits up one internet connections to 4 (or whatever # of ports you have).

Basic Connections to a router:
A Router requires a internet connections, so your broadband modem must connect to the WAN port (theres only one) of the router DIRECTLY. Then Ethernet cables go from the router to the computers on the LAN ports. Don't do something weird like connecting your internet to your computer then your computer to the routers WAN port, it'll most likely mess up.

Once you have connected your router like this, it should work.

If your modem only has a usb port, I have no idea how to make that work out. Sorry. Try getting a new modem from your ISP, or check if your modem does have a ethernet port, if it does just connnect that to the routers wan port.

Also computers should not interconnect with each other with use of a router. Thats what the router is for. Everything gets connected and split up at the router, nothing connects to anything else but the router, basically.

Disc loaded connection exc. still can't get on to internet

Lets start at the beginning, you should have a DSL/CABLE modem that connects you to the internet to begin with now. It would be helpful to know the Manufacturer and model of that device. There were probably two possibilities on how you had your internet set up before. The modem could be a modem/router with only one port in which the router supplied the username and password to access the internet. If this is the case you will need to hook a computer up to the modem directly access its default IP address usually or .254. To access this device you will have to manually set your IP address to a address that is on the same subnet. You do this by going to network connections in control panel right clicking the Local Area Connection and clicking properties. Then scroll down in the box until you see TCP/IP click on it and hit the properties button. Set your ip address to something like and a subnet of You will need to change the routing pattern to Bridged Ethernet. This will allow your new router to do all the work. You will then need to hook your modem directly to the WAN port on your router and connect your computer to one of the switch ports on the router. You will then need access your router by using or .254. You will need to set the PPoE Information i.e. username and password. Now you will need to go back to your network connections and change your ip address back to the obtain automatically. Your internet should kick on and start working. If i have made any wrong assumptions please let me know and I will follow up with a more detailed response.
