Ok you've done something that I'm not real sere that you wanted to do. You're trying to connect a gateway/modem to a layer 2 highly configureable web switch. It may/may not require any crossover cables this canbe determined later.
First however you the 100WR must be configured A) Plug-in the power B) Plugin a "4" wire telephone cable this may not be nessarry however I do not know anything about your service provider and a few do require this also make sure that there is no alarm system on the same line or you will have to call your phone company or alarm company. plug the telephone line from the wall to the 1000WR now you should get not only the power light but the internet/adsl light now on the back of the 1000WR is a series of 4 or so ethernet ports. Connect an ethernet cable between the port and your computer you will see that your computer will try to get a connection how it shows it will be some kind of network signal on microsoft products, also a light will light on the 1000WR if not get a crossover.To go any furter is a shot in the dark what I need is what is your operating system the reason you are useing a layer 2 web switch (bet you paid a lot for it) and who we are connceting to

I want to network two pc with windows xp using crossover cable,, how do i do it step by step pls.


Connect two computers using a crossover cable
If you need to connect two computers but you don't have access to a network and can't set up an ad hoc network, you can use an Ethernet crossover cable to create a direct cable connection.
Generally speaking, a crossover cable is constructed by reversing ("crossing over") the order of the wires inside so that it can connect two computers directly. A crossover cable looks almost exactly like a regular Ethernet cable (a "straight-through" cable), so make sure you have a crossover cable before following these steps.
Before buying a crossover cable, check your network adapter. Some newer network adapters automatically "cross over" when they detect that they are connected directly to another network adapter using a regular Ethernet cable.
To connect two computers with a crossover cable
This works best if both computers are running this version of Windows.
Plug each end of the crossover cable into a network port on the back of each computer.
On one of the computers that is running this version of Windows, do the following:
Open Network and Sharing Center by clicking the Start button , clicking Control Panel, clicking Network and Internet, and then clicking Network and Sharing Center.
In the network map at the top of Network and Sharing Center, double-click the Unidentified network? icon. (If you have more than one network, this icon will be labeled Multiple networks.)
If network discovery and file sharing are turned off, in Network, click the Information bar containing the following message: "Network discovery and file sharing are turned off. Network computers and devices are not visible. Click to change...," and then click Turn on network discovery and file sharing. If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
In the Network discovery and file sharing dialog box, select one of the following options:
No, make the network that I am connected to a private network
Yes, turn on network discovery and file sharing for all public networks
The first option is usually the best choice because it only affects the network that you are connected to.
Notes
Networks created with crossover cables are automatically set up as "Public place" networks, which means that network discovery, file sharing, and printer sharing are off by default.
For Gigabit Ethernet or token ring networks, you will need a slightly different kind of crossover cable. For more information, contact a cable manufacturer.
Icons for both computers should now be visible in the Network window. Double-click each computer icon to share printers and other resources.
Note
If one of the computers is running Windows XP, it can take some time for that computer to appear in the Network window. You might need to move both computers to the same workgroup. You can do that by changing the workgroup on either computer. To change a workgroup, see Join or create a workgroup. You might also need to turn on file and printer sharing on the computer running Windows XP.
Hope this help!

Using a crossover cable to connect two computers.


Hi.

You can use a crossover cable to share files and folders between the two computers.

A crossover cable looks exactly the same as any Ethernet cable, but its internal wiring is reversed respect to the regular cables used to connect computers to routers or switches.Crossover cables have the 1st and 3rd wires (counting from left to right) crossed, and the 2nd and 6th wires crossed, thay can be recognised because the word Crossover is printed on top of the cable.

31e17ac.gif

Before proceeding ensure that the cable you are using is a crossover. Crossover wiring isdifferent. By using an ordinary ethernet cable you will not be able to extablish a directconnection between computers.

To use the crossover you will need to disconnect any other cable connection to computer ethernet cards. Naturally both computers must have a wired network adapter installed .

After connecting the crossover, you will need to configure the network connection.

Turn off both computers, connect the crossover (cat5 or cat6) cable, and turn back on computers.

Ensure that all firewallare turned off, and on Vista answer yes to all requests of authorization for the new network.

On both computers go to system properties, and ensure that the two computers have the same workgroup.

Second step is going to Sharing and Security, in system properties, and sharing the files and folder that you want to transfer.

Once the folders are shared you will see in My computer (Computer on Vista) the folder shared from the other computer. Simply copy and paste the files.

You may be asked to restart computer after each step.

If after sharing files and folder you want to share Internet connection, then you will have to assign two IP addresses that are in the same range to the two connected computers.
An IP address is a series of numbers from 1 to 256, in the format XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX . The two IP addresses must share the first three numbers to share the internet connection. In the real case, you can set the IP adresses to 192.168.0.1 and 192.168.0.2.

Connect D-Link DWL-G700AP to dreambox decoder


you can connect to your box via FTP via a crossover cable. If you can’t, you might want to read up on that before attempting this.
Now, what we’ll need is…
Ethernet cable (crossover or patch)
Router
Modem
We’ll also assume that you have a router (wireless or not) and that your modem is connected to the ‘Internet’ or ‘WAN’ port.
If you have a free port on your wireless router, you can connect your dreambox to this. Use the ethernet cable (crossover or patch, most modern routers will accept either) connect one end to your dreambox and one end to a free port on your router. You don’t need to change any settings on your router or PC.
Over to the dreambox. Navigate to the networking page on your dreambox.

I cant connect to two computers at the same time


How to connect....

1- Two Computers:

# We are connect two computers together to share Internet, printer, scanner, files, and even programs

We can do it through either way:

1- Use A Crossover Cable And Two Network Cards.Two network cards are installed in two computers.Then use crossover cable to connect them.

2- Use a Phone Line and Two Special Adapters Sold as "Phone line network Kit". Two adapters are installed in two computers. Then use existing Phone line to connect them.

Connecting Two Computers Wirelessly:

1- Wi-Fi
2- Bluetooth
3- Infrared


Several types of fixtures exist for home networking:

1- Hubs
2- Switches
3- Routers


2- Computer with the internet

Before you can connect to the Internet and access the World Wide Web, you need to have certain equipment. In brief, you must have:

-A computer (preferably running an up-to-date operating system); -
-A modem and access to a telephone line or a local area network (LAN) that is in turn connected to the Internet; and connection software that will allow you to establish an account with a service provider and access the Internet


You Need:

Modem: This converts your digital computer information into analogue telephone signals. Phone Line: his may be your biggest expense after the equipment.

Internet Service Provider (ISP): ISP has a permanent connection to the Internet.

ADSL: a newly standardized transmission technology facilitating simultaneous use of normal telephone services, data transmission of 6 Mbit/s in the downstream and Basic-rate Access (BRA).

ADSL facilitates the simultaneous use of normal telephone services, ISDN, and high speed data transmission.

Another advantage of having an ADSL line is not missing calls while you're online, as both voice and data can be transferred at the same time.

Crossover Cable


crossover cables are designed to connect two DCEs (data communication equipments like modems) or two DTEs(data terminal equipments like computers)
most routers nowadays have smart ports so you can use either a crossover or a straight-through cable to connect a computer. but if your router doesn't have smart ports, it's advisable to use straight-through cables

hope this'll help you

Connection problem between modem router and hub


Sounds like you may need what is called a "Crossover Cable' connecting your router to your hub, or if either device has an uplink port, use it on one device to connect to normal port on other device. Here are instructions for making your own cables: http://www.lanshack.com/make-cat5E.aspx

Can't get connection between modem and wireless router


You probably will need crossover; a straight through cable is normally lan card to lan card on both PC's, that is the router is set correctly and there are no other issues.
