Re: connection

Yes I have a suggestion, here is what you need to do.
1 Make sure your new router is connected to the Ethernet port on the DSL/Cable Modem, you never specified which type of modem you have, if I knew this information I could assist you even more accurately. Your PC should be connected to the new router also on one of the Ehternet ports, they usually have 4. You need to verify your computer (PC) is getting the DHCP information from the new Router(Linksys) This can easily be determined using this command in az DOS window. If you are using Windows XP, again you did not specify your PC's OS, go to "Start", then "Run" and type in "cmd", withouth the quotes.
This will open a DOS window. In this window type "ipconfig /all"
The important thing to look for here is your Network cards IP Address, Default Gateway, Primary and Secondary Domain Servers Addresses. These should nearly match your daughters information, except for the IP address, whcih will be close but the last number(s) will be different. Most of the time the problem is due to both the modem and the router are on the same network and are both running DHCP, which is what gives out the IP address, default gateway and DNS information for your PC and your Daughters to use for Internet access. It could also be that your PC has the same IP address as her's, whcih will cause the exact problem you are discribing as well. If you turn off her laptop and can then access the Internet on your PC, then this is exactly what is happening. You will then need to make sure the Linksys Router and the DSL/Cable Modem are on a different network, by changing the address of one or the other, it is easiest for you to probably just change the Router. It is problably set to or Hook your PC directly into the modem again. run the command "ipconfig /all" and look at the IP address it gives your PC. If this is the same as the one your Router is giving, then you have found your problem. Unplug from the modem an again plug straight into the router, nothing else. Open a web browser and type in http://192.168.x.x whatever the IP address is for the default gateway that is shown on your PC. You should get a login window. By default Linksys usually uses admin as the username and password, consult your manual to be certain. In the web page that opens, your manual can help you further here as well, there should be a "Setup" link you can click where you can change the "LAN" network IP Address. You only need to change the 3rd number, as in 192.168."X".1 If the modem was for example change the Routher to and you should be fine. Please let me know if this has helped or if you need further assistance.

Wht should i do to conenct to internet

1. Uninstall or disable all Internet-sharing applications, proxy software and security software such as anti-virus programs or firewalls. Although every program is different, if you choose to uninstall one, you can typically do so by clicking "Start," "Control Panel" and "Add/Remove Software" and then selecting the software you wish to remove. Because Homeportal 1000 comes with its own versions of these programs, this step is essential to avoid conflicts.

2. Connect Homeportal's AC power adapter to the back of your router, and then plug it into a power outlet. The green power light should come on.

3. Connect the router to your
computer. If you're using Ethernet, connect the Ethernet cable to both the router and the Ethernet jack on the back of your computer. If you plan to use USB, follow the same procedure using the USB cable and ports, instead. For a wireless connection, ensure that your wireless card is correctly installed on your PC.

4. Connect the phone cable to the back of your router and then plug it into a phone jack. This will allow the Homeportal 1000 to receive DSL signals from the phone company.

5. Place the Homeportal 1000 installation CD into your CD drive and follow the on-screen instructions to install the necessary software and until finish installation.

Can't connect with 2nd computer...

1st.  What brand and model # of your router? 2. The router cd should be run only on the computer u have connected to the router with a network cable. Your vista laptop. Is it connected with to the router with a cable? 3. If so, it will be the one used to configure your router for wireless setup. When you ran the setup it should have gone thru Wireless Setup. It will ask you for an SSID. That is a name you will give your wirless network. It can be anything you want. just remember it.  It will also ask you to setup security for your wireless network. follow the instructions to setup a password. write it down. This is an important step so anyone cannot just logon to your wireless signal an start using ur internet connection or gain access to your computers. 4. when u setup your dongle on your kids computer it will search for wireless signals in the area. you will look for the one u setup in the previeous step. you will select it and it should ask you for the passkey you setup. once connected you will have access to the internet.
Think of your router as a private radio station and the wireless usb dongle is the radio. The only way your computers can tune to it is using the dongle and if you know the name of the station (your SSID) and the passkey.
