What are the two ethernet for? Does it let you plug in both and you can use both at the same time, therefore downloading faster than one or something?

Hi,

No you can't download any faster with 2 NIC ports.

In a typical setup where a PC has 2 NICs, one is setup as the connection to the internet and the other can be used to interface with any device that is Ethernet capable (home video cameras, alarm systems, home control systems, etc). However, the other NIC can be connected to another network.

You can even share an internet connection though a wall NIC throughout the home.

This means 1 for the internet and the other for networking to another hub/server or computer.

Regards.

Is it okay to plug 2 computers into the back of my dsl modem (2-wire) by means of 2 ethernet cables? There are plenty of places to plug into, so I tend to think it's okay, but I really have no idea and...


this is fine most modems can take up to 5 aslong as you have space in your ethernet slots on your modem its fine i would say buy another one if you want a faster connection and link them if you would like if not its fine but the more connected to the modem the slow the internet will be if all working at the same time

My pc has room for one ethernet cable and its already taken to a router box. i have no idea what its for but now there seems to be nowhere to hook up my 360. i want to hook up for xbox live and netflix....


Simply put

You need to plug your xBox 360 into the Router not the PC.

The Router should have more than one ethernet slot. (That is what is generally meant by the term Router).

Therefore:

1. Plug one end of the Ethernet cable into your xBox 360.
2. Plug the other end of the Ethernet cable into an available slot on the Router.

If your Router is constantly connected to the Internet then this should solve the problem. If it is not, then connect to the Internet via your PC and then when the internet is on the xBox should find it.

Hope this helps. Regards,

C5180 all in one is not connecting via ethernet.


Before you begin: Check requirements Make sure you have the following items:
  • One of the following types of wired access points or routers: Ethernet router, switch, hub, or wireless router with Ethernet ports
  • A computer that connects to the wired access point or router
  • A Category 5 Ethernet cable to use for the HP product. (Do not use a standard telephone cable.) Figure 2: Cable comparisonc01710115.gif 1 - Ethernet cable 2 - Telephone cable (do not use) Although an Ethernet cable looks similar to standard telephone cable, each has a different plug and a different number of wires. The plug on an Ethernet cable (also called an RJ-45 connector) is wide, thick, and always has eight wires. The plug on a telephone cable is narrower and has between two and six wires.
Are you changing from USB connection to Ethernet connection?If you previously installed the software for a USB connection and now want to change to an Ethernet connection, follow these instructions to remove the USB installation before continuing.
  1. Click Start , click Printers and Faxes , and then right-click the icon for HP product.
  2. Click Delete to remove the product.
  3. Disconnect the USB cable from the product and the computer.
Step one: Connect the HP All-in-One to the network
  1. Remove any plug or protective cover from the Ethernet port on the back of the product. Figure 3: Remove plugc01710117.gif
  2. Connect the Ethernet cable to the Ethernet port on the product, and then connect the other end of the cable to an available port on the wired access point or router. Figure 4: Connect the Ethernet cablec01710118.gif
  3. Connect the power cord to the product, and then plug it into an electrical outlet.
  4. Turn the product on.
Step two: Decide whether to install with the product CD or download the software Don’t worry if you don’t have the product CD! You can download the most current software available for your product from the HP Web site at no cost. The following information might help you decide which installation method to use:
CD Download For a new product: CD installation is a quick and easy method. If you do not have a CD, you can download the software you need. For an older product: CD installation might not work if you are installing the product on a computer running a newer operating system that released AFTER the HP product released. Downloading the software provides the best results for your older product. Even though it takes more time than using the CD, downloading the latest software can help you avoid installation issues.

Downloading is the recommended method if your computer operating system released after the HP product released. About the software: The software on the CD is current to the date of the product release. The software that you can download from the HP Web site is the most current software available for your product. HP often updates software and drivers AFTER the product and CD release to the market.Step three: Install the software

Laptop unable to connect to cable modem


Although you can use a USB connection, you have experienced first hand one reason why I never recommend it. Firstly, you have to install drivers for the modem itself, usually included on the install CD. However, if you just purchased an ethernet card for under $15 locally or under $8 on the web, you plug it in, and once it's installed you just go without further complications and it is faster and more reliable as well.

The "smaller" plug you're talking about is an RJ45 plug, used for dial-up Internet - you'll get nowhere with that. You have a couple of options if you want to hook up your Ethernet cable. As you mentioned, yes there are plenty of USB to Ethernet adaptors out there, this is the simplest way of getting an Ethernet port on your computer. There are also PCI Ethernet Cards if you fancy your chances at installing it inside the computer, this will make it a little tidier and they're usually a little cheaper too. Your PCI slots, once installed will have the plugs located at the back of your PC, horizontally angled at the bottom - you usually have at least 4 slots, at the max of 7.
