If you would like to use two computers on the same intenet, you'll need to purchase a router. Linksys is one of the top brands in routers.

Routers allow you to connect a vast amount of computers to your inter. The router connect to your modem and then you connect the two computers to your router.

A decent price of a router is about 49.99. Here is a good one from Best Buy: http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage.jsp;jsessionid=ODENRVPZTXBBRKC4D3JFAGI?_dyncharset=ISO-8859-1&id=pcat17071&type=page&st=linksys+router&sc=Global&cp=1&nrp=15&sp=&qp=&list=n&iht=y&usc=All+Categories&ks=960

First look in device manager and verify that the network adapter is enabled, if so you can try disabling it then shut down and reboot the PC.
Once booted, go back into device manager and enable the network adapter.
Run the software that came with your router and follow the steps provided.
Make sure your network cable from your router is NOT connected untill instructed to do so.
You will need to have the network cable from your modem connected to your PC for the router software to detect network connection.

Good luck, I hope this helps.
Have a nice day.

Cable and wireless question


Not possible, since the "input" to the 2WIRE modem is a 4-wire telephone-line, not an 8-wire Ethernet cable.

Instead, spend about $40 to buy a D-Link Wireless G modem, and connect its WAN port to the cable-modem, and connect up to 4 Ethernet cables to "wired" computers, and configure the "wireless" component of the D-Link router.

Can't connect to internet thru 2wire modem on new computer


check the ipaddress. go to start -> run -> type ipconfig and hit enter. if you have a 169.x.x.x then you have an invalid ipaddress. if you have any other address go to start -> run -> and type ping google.com. if you recieve replies then the problem is browser . if you dont get replies then check your dns and verify with your isp that that is the correct address. if all checks out then call your isp and tell them they need to replace the modem wether is cable or dsl.

Your new computer should have came with a resource cd for drivers, if not then you need to contact dell for support and have them provide you with a CD thaqt copntains all the drivers for your computer. You might want to have this anyway in case you need to troubleshoot your computer. I hope this info helps.
