Can't find the instructions to hook up second computer, we have two computers and the reason for the dx was to hook both of them up now I find I have no instructions, pls help!

Assuming that the router has one 'WAN' (or 'Internet') port, and more than one 'LAN' (or 'Network') port, just connect an Ethernet cable from the 2nd LAN port to the network-port on the second computer.

Both the router and the second computer should auto-configure themselves, giving you an Internet connection, without any fuss.

Network is hooked up correctly but when I try to get internet on the wireless laptop it says to unplug router for 10 seconds and try again. I did this and it still doesn't work. What else can I do?

Open the control panel ... delete the connection in yout network folder. Turn off the modem. Turn off the router. wait ... wait ... turn on the modem ... wait ... wait ... turn on the router ... wait ... wait ... turn on your computer wait ... wait ... run the connection wizard to discover the router. Windows should take if from there with a little help from you.

Trying to set up a second computer for wireless

What wireless mode is you router operating in? Does it support the cards on your other systems?

Do you have mac address control enabled?

Try disabling security temporarily to see if you can connect; your wireless connection may not be setup to authenticate properly.

Used to have 2 computers working with our wireless router. One was directly hooked up with an ethernet cable, the other was wireless. I'm now trying to have two computers hooked up wireless from network...

Perhaps you turned on MAC address filtering in your router's wireless security settings? It's a pretty good security measure for not allowing unwanted visitors to try hooking up to your wireless internet connection, so it might have been recommended.
Go to your router's configuration and see if MAC filtering is turned on. If it is, you have to add your second computer's wireless card MAC address to the "allowed" list.
Your card's MAC address is sometimes written on it, but it's simpler to go to command prompt and type "ipconfig /all", which will show you details about all the network devices present in the system. Find the wireless card and note the MAC (physical) address. Note: in windows the address has a "-" dash as a separator, whereas normally a ":" colon is used as a separator and this is usually the way you have to enter it.

Second computer cant connet through the router..

You must reconfigure the wireless settings on the wireless computer. Go to Network and Sharing Center > Manage Wireless Networks. Now you must delete all the prefered wireless network profile there. If they are all deleted, click on ADD > Click Add A Network in range of this computer > Select the signal from your router and connect. If it asks you for a network key, you should know that, otherwise, contact your router provider to determine what your network key is. That should solve it.

Cannot get a second computer on my secure wireless network

Have you set the properties on the second computer to match the security expected by the router? Since one computer works I would compare the settings for the network connection and set the second computer to the same.

DI 624- Cant connect from router to computer

Hi mark - please don't rate this til it's fixed. Hook it up the way you had it. i.e. modem>router>pc. Try it, probably won't work. Unplug the power on your modem and the router. After 60 seconds plug in your modem. When all the lights return to normal (except the activity light), plug in your router. Give it 20 seconds or so. Try it and let me know what happens. Thanks.

Hooking up a 2nd computer upstairs with the router downstairs.

In order to setup a second computer with your router you need to first make certain that you have the following:

The second PC must have a wireless adapter. Determine if you have security setup for your network. Meaning determine if you have a wep, wpa, etc. setup. This is a security Hexidecimal encryption that allows only the administrator (you) of the network the ability to place other devices onto your network. You then need to access the web-based tool that allows you to setup and or change settings. Any more questions please feel free to ask I could walk you through it step by step.
