Question about Computers & Internet
I presume that you are trying to attach a wireless g router between your machine and your isp connection. To do this you need to know about the ip numbering that is going on. Look in internet connections in the control panel to see what your IP number is. If it is 192.168.x.x where x is a number 0 - 255, you are on an inhome network, probably because you are hooked to a dsl or other router. In this case, you want to plug the cable that is currently plugged into your computer intoe the WAN port of the G router and then put a cable between your computer and a LAN port of the G router. Set your computer to automatically get an IP number and reboot. When you reboot, connect to the G router (usually at 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.2.1 - your instructions that came with the router should tell you the address. You do this just by typing http://126.96.36.199 into the address bar of your browser.) You then need to tell the G Router to DHCP to get an ip number - this is usually the default. When the G router gets and ip number, then the packets for your computer will come through it, then to your computer. You should set up some encryption withing the G router unless you want to share your connection with the neighborhood. If your computer has an IP number that is NOT 192.168.x.x then that IP number and associated gateway, subnet mask and DNS server information must be put into the G router, with your computer plugging into a LAN port of the router and the wire that is currently in your computer plugged into the WAN port of the router. This one will probably need the assistance of your ISP as the information you need may be hard for you to get unless you really play around in control panel. Hope this helped.
