Router works fine most of the time with one wired and one wireless connection. When I plug in an extra PC I lose connection on both wired connections. Both are running XP. Any ideas?

My first suggestion would be to shutdown the modem, router, and XP PCs. Then power up the modem, router, then PCs (in that order) pausing about 20 seconds between powering each unit.
Good luck.

I have wireless Internet! I have a laptop, I tried to connect to it~ It will connect to the router, but won't connect to the Internet! Help!


How many wired and wireless computers do you have ion the network.
Do you have any wired computer ?
Connect your laptop to the router with the Ethernet cable and try to access Internet. See if the wired connection is working or not.
If the wired connection is working then I think you will need to check the wireless settings of the router and the laptop.

One end should go in your router(on one of the ports) and the other, your computer (It should fit perfectly in the ports and you should here a click), only use this if you want an Ethernet (Wired Internet) connection. If you want a Wireless connection, do not use this cable.

Wired connection randomly drops


Since the wireless works fine on your router, then it is possible that there is a problem either on your ethernet cable or on the port of the belkin router.
Try a different ethernet cable. (Ethernet cable is the one that is connected from your computer to the router.) If you don't have a spare cable, you can directly connect the computer to the modem, just to isolate the issue and determine if it is the cable or the computer itself.
If you have determined that the cable is working fine, then try a different port on the router.
I hope this helps!

If you get the same speed on all three computers, I'd recommend replacing the router. I can't imagine any possible configuration setting that would cause a router to communicate at only 10KB over a wired Ethernet channel.

Wireless router - establish wired connection with desktop PC


You are right, cable connection is more secure. The steps are:
1.) Connect the PC to the router with a crossover cable.
2.) Once connected, try to see if you are in the network. If you are, then you are ready to connect to the net.

Connecting Laptop wireless and Desktop wired to the router


Do you need to see the desktop or just share folders from each other? If the latter then you need to do the following:

Use Windows Explorer and select a folder you want to share. Right click and select sharing and security.

On the sharing tab click on Share this folder. Enter a share name ( I like to enter the PC name _folder name; Rick1_Downloads)

Click on Permissions. If your ok with everyone using the PC's and Laptops having access then highlight Everyone and click on Full Control.

Do this on each PC and Laptop.

That should be it or darned near close.

Pleaase check if the PC connects when plugged directly to the DSL or cable connection whatever you have without the router in between. That would ensure the functionality of the ethernet card on the other pc.
