Your router has an lan address or IP. Something like 192.168.1.1. This is what you must connect to. Each of the machines you want to connect must have (in this example) an IP number between 192.168.1.2 and 192.168.1.225. As long as your machines all have a unique IP they should all connect to your router. Your modem will have a gateway and typically this will be something like 10.0.0.1. So setup for one machine may look like this [192.168.1.3 subnet 255.255.255.0

To find these setting, click on your lan connection, select "properties" and choose "Internet Protocol TCP/IP". Here you will see these settings. Your router guide will give you these settings, make sure you get them from your router guide.

Computer connection to broadband DIMMENSION 4600 5 YEAR OLD


You need to have a connection to an internet service provider to connect to the internet. Normally they will provide you with an IP address to configure your modem. I would contact them for these details.
If you have that info in hand, run the network setup wizard from the control panel.
For XP, please see this link
For Vista, please see this link
If you think there is some hardware fault, you can check this by looking in the Device Manager. A disabled adapter will appear with a red X across it.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.
If I've managed to answer your question or solve a problem, please take a moment to kindly rate this post....thanks!

AOL broadband connection


The answer is very simple ... Uninstall the AOL browser, you do not need it to connect to the internet, AOL's browser, as I have discovered chokes your bandwidth and slows down your PC. I would strongly recommend using something like Firefox (you can add the AOL toolbar if needed). I removed AOL's browser over a year ago and have not had a single problem, bespite the fact that AOL insist I must have it installed on my PC ... Absolute rubbish.

I have a linksy instant broadband etherfast cable/dsl router and I have WOW internet service. I'm been using a dell computer and just obtain a EMac computer and would like to share the WOW internet...


Greetings...

Which Linksys router do you have?
If it has 4 ethernet ports in the rear of the router you will need CAT 5 cable to run from the router to the computer...
One cable per computer...
The computer needs to have a network card in it...

So the setup is... WOW modem to Internet input on Linksys router and cables to each computer from the Linksys...
