Probably, a problem with the IP addresses. A conflict between the two computers. Try to connect to the internet with only one computer turned on. Let the other one turned off. Find out the IP address with the command ipconfig. You may have to renew it (ipconfig /renew).

Then, go to the router config: See the manual of your router. You may have to reserve the 2 IP addresses in your router configuration.

I have one computer on the internet what do I do toset up a wireless router for second computer?


The wire that is connected to the first computer probably goes to your modem. Take the wire from the modem and put it into a wireless router that has wire output, put another wire from the modem back to your first computer. Then check the settings. You should then run the setup program for the new router so that you can set the wireless security and other settings.

I have a belkin router i am having trouble connecting it. i dont know where to connect the ethernet cable. Does it go the computer or the modem?


the ethernet cable should be connected to the ethernet port of the router to the ethernet/network port of the computer. you will also need to connect a cable through the router and the modem, then a phone cable from the modem to the phone line.

I need a ips address as my computer won't connect to the internext


Your modem/router should provide you with an ip address automatically. Otherwise(Im assuming that you are running Windows XP) go to Start>control pane>Network Connections and right click on your Local Area Connection. Click on properties and make sure your computer is set to receive configuration from modem/router automatically.

Is your cable modem also a wireless router?

From my search on it, it is not a wireless router.

This means you need to attach a hub or a wireless router to your cable modem so that more than one computer can connect to the internet simultaneously.

Go out and buy a wireless router. Connect the wireless router to your cable modem.

Connect your desktop to the wireless router with an ethernet cable.

Then you should have internet on your desktop.

Let me know if this helps. Give me a good rating and vote for me please.

Internet no longer working, but internal network is fine.


i agree with all the above.. it's definately clear as mud how the network is designed and or funtioning. The machines connected to the wireless d-link router.. are they via cat5 inthe wired ports or wireless ? is the server the machine thats connecting to the switch and wiress router and modem? i'd say reset all switches modems routers and machines.. shut them all down.. then fire the cable modem, then the wireless router then the desktop switch then the server, the workstations and the one lonely wireless.. run "ipconfig /all" on all machines and if they aren't all sharing common ips and access, provide the results here for further investigation.

Only one computer is able to connect to the internet even though i have 2 connected to the router


Well the modem should be connected to the UPLINK port on the router(the port without a number) both computers should be connected to the numbered port. Ensure you do NOT have a problem with one of your cables.

Im not able to connect to get the belkin router to connect to the internet


Make sure that the router is connected to the cable modem. The network cable from the modem goes into the Internet or WAN port of the router. Then your cable from the Ethernet port onyour computer goes into any of the ports labled 1,2,3,or 4.
after you are sure that the connections are right. Take the power cords off of the cable modem and the router. Wait 30 seconds, then plug in the cable modem in first, wait till the light are on the modem. Then plug in the power to your router. Restart your computer and you should be able to get on line.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

I can't get internet connection when the router is in place but it works without it, i no longer have my instalation guide or software(cd)


The only "installation" you need for the router is to connect it to the modem, plug in the power and, if it's a wired router, to connect it to the computer.

Then configure your computer's internet connection to connect to the router. (How you do that depends on which operating system the computer is running.)

If you're getting a wireless connection with no router, you're connecting to someone else's router - which is both illegal and dangerous (it gives them access to your computer).
