First see weather you have given a correct and diffrent ip address for both and the computer name should not be same and the check with the dns it shound be correct if you dont have any ask your service provider


if this all does not work check with the network cable it should be crimped striaght when connecting to a computer from switch and it should be crimped cross when you connect a modem to switch

and if you are not using a broadband via ethernet then you have to use a proxy

Connecting 2 computers to a SohoWare ND4025. I would like to connect two computers to this router in order for them both to use internet. The network, is set up right now, the computer im typing on...


With firewall disabled, try setting the ipv4 properties of your connection as follows: ip address:
obtain an ip address automatically.
DNS
Obtain DNS server address automatically
since this is a peer to peer network you have to understand that the two machines are independent of each other so if this is not the settings on your first machine, please duplicate the exact settings of the first machine on the second machine. The hub might be distributing specific requirements from the modem. Hope this helps

IF possible to share internet on TE100-S50g ? Because i have 2 computer but my second computer doesn't have internet :(


Hi!
As I see here what you have is a switch. What you need is a router. A switch has no capability to share an internet connection between two PCs. I suggest purchasing a router.

You have a great day.

I connected my modem to my router and then plugged my computers to the router, but only one of them has access to internet.


Hi,

with default settings on the Router, only one computer will be having access to the internet.
To allow multiple computers to connect to the internet through a single modem, You have to configure NAT ( Network Address Translation) on the router.

NAT basically hides your internal IPS of the computers and goes outside with the IP which you gets from the service provider through Modem.
If you dont enable NAT on the router then you have only one IP for all your computers to go out and only one of them can go to internet with that IP.

Best Regards

Only one computer can acces the internet in my hub , I have a Linksys NH1005 hub , I'm using cable dsl , but only one computer can acces the internet , it does not matter wich port


If you want to use more than one computers you will need to replace that hub with router. Best is to get wireless router because in most routers you have places for wired connections and also wireless connection.

Reason why you can't use more than one computer is simple because most ISP are allowing only one computer to be connected from DSL modem.

D-link cant accesed internet 4pc


Most of DSL modems are connected to PC with USB cable...
n if ur server is connected with other pc on lan .. you can use internet sharing option available in winxp.

Following are the steps to enable Internetsharing for other pcs.


How to use Internet Connection Sharing loadTOCNode(2, 'summary'); To use Internet Connection Sharing to share your Internet connection, the host computer must have one network adapter that is configured to connect to the internal network, and one network adapter or modem that is configured to connect to the Internet.

On the host computer loadTOCNode(3, 'summary'); On the host computer, follow these steps to share the Internet connection:
  1. Log on to the host computer as Administrator or as Owner.
  2. Click Start, and then click Control Panel.
  3. Click Network and Internet Connections.
  4. Click Network Connections.
  5. Right-click the connection that you use to connect to the Internet. For example, if you connect to the Internet by using a modem, right-click the connection that you want under Dial-up.
  6. Click Properties.
  7. Click the Advanced tab.
  8. Under Internet Connection Sharing, select the Allow other network users to connect through this computer's Internet connection check box.
  9. If you are sharing a dial-up Internet connection, select the Establish a dial-up connection whenever a computer on my network attempts to access the Internet check box if you want to permit your computer to automatically connect to the Internet.
  10. Click OK. You receive the following message: When Internet Connection Sharing is enabled, your LAN adapter will be set to use IP
    address 192.168.0.1. Your computer may lose connectivity with other computers on
    your network. If these other computers have static IP addresses, it is a good idea to set them
    to obtain their IP addresses automatically. Are you sure you want to enable Internet
    Connection Sharing?
  11. Click Yes.
The connection to the Internet is shared to other computers on the local area network (LAN). The network adapter that is connected to the LAN is configured with a static IP address of 192.168.0.1 and a subnet mask of 255.255.255.0

let me know if it helps.

best regards,

Connecting to the Internet with more than 1 computer (using a PureData 16 port device)


The PureData 16 port is just a hub and does not perform any of the housekeeping functions you would need in order to create a home network and connect several computers to the Internet at the same time. The reason why your procedure works is because your service provider by default will only allow you to have one IP address. When you unplug your modem that forces the providers equipment to reconnect to your computer and reissue the IP address. The way to get your desktop and laptop to connect simultaneously is to go down to your local computer store and purchase a home router/firewall. I?ve seen some on sale for as little as $35 at times and are fairly easy to setup. Good luck and let us know how it goes.
