Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I have four computers on a wireless router, 3 desktops, 1 laptop. All computers except the lap top are connected to the cable modem via cable. If 2 computers are accessing the internet with normal inquiries and the 3rd(laptop) is continually playing interactive games on the internet, will the internet response time for the 2 desktops deminish because of all the game playing of the 3rd ?

Yes it will. Since all the connected device whether wired or wireless were connected to the same network, they will share bandwidth speed. For example your network is capable of 10 Mbps connection, the four devices connected in the network will acquire the bandwidth of that according to the software or application it was running. Mostly interactive games consume more bandwidth speed than just plain internet browsing. It will only support the devices up to the 10 Mbps limit.

Wireless connection works fine from the d-link router but the desktop linked from the phoneline keeps going offline. Why?


You've omitted some information about your hardware & configuration & connections.

You should have:

1. cable-modem connected to cable socket (or DSL-modem connected to telephone wall-jack);
2. router connected via Ethernet cable to the cable-modem (or DSL-modem)
3. desktop computer connected via Ethernet cable to the desktop computer
4. wireless device (iPod or netbook or notebook) connected over the "ether" to the router -- this connection will stay "up" almost "forever" (as long as there is AC-power to the router and power to the wireless device).

Which parts & connections do you have?

Connection problem


The first thing to check is that both of your computers are assigned to the same workgroup name. Right click 'my computer' and select properties. Change the workgroup name so that they are identical on both machines. You will need to reboot if you change the name one one or both of the machines.

My desktop uses a DSL internet connection but my lap top will not pick up the signal from it to connect even when I have it sitting right next to my desktop. If I actually unplug yellow connection cord...


Having your laptop sitting next to your desktop will not let your laptop connect to the DSL link.

You need what's called a Wireless Router. (assuming your laptop has a wireless adapter, if not you'll need a network cable for that.

1. Go to the store, buy a wireless router
2. install router in between your DSL modem and the computer.
3. Plug the WAN port into the DSL modem (cable is usually included with the router)
4. Plug the desktop into the back of one of the ports of the wireless router
5. Run the setup disk
6. For manual configuration of the router you can usually go to: 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.2.1 depending on the brand)
7. If you don't know anything about networking, let the install disk do all the work.
8. Follow the instructions on what it tells you your configuration is for your wireless network.
9. Go to your laptop, apply said instructions.
10. ???
11. Profit.

Want to hook laptop up to home computer via cable modem


You need a router or a wireless router to do that.
If your cable modem is wireless you can set directly via wireless network a connection with your laptop (the laptop also need a wireless card (if dont have any built in))
The connection must be done in this way

ISP ----->> Cable Modem ---->> Wireless Router o Router ----->> Computer ( 1, 2, or more)

Set up problem


First make sure you have the blue cable connected from your modem to the wan port on your router. This is the port closest to the power connection. Make sure all of your computers tcp/ip settings are set to obtain ip address automatically. If this still doesn't work unplug your modem and router at the same time for about 60 seconds. Plug in your modem and after all lights come on except the activity light, plug in your router. You should have have the power light, wan light and however many pcs are connected and on lit up. This should solve your problem. If not, add a comment and I'll be glad to come back and help.
