The wireless router will only require an installation disc and then you will be able to connect to it with your wireless card on your computer, or an Ethernet cable, neither of these require the PCI slots.

Set up difficulties


You sure can. Start w/ the Comcast modem as long as it is NOT a USB type and hooks using a CAT-5 cable (regular network cable). Hook the comcast modem to the WAN port of the wireless router. On the back of the wireless router use the normal 1-4 extra LAN ports to hook other computers or the SD208 switch to it and other computers from there.

Word of advise if using Wireless Router, be sure to read manual and set a KEY for your network to secure it from unwanted outside use.

How do i hook up the desk computer in the a diffent room from the main computer


Is your desk computer (the one you want to move) wireless capable? If so, simply move it. If not add a PCI based wireless card to it OR, if it has a NIC (Network Interface Card) (integral to the mother bord or PCI based) you can run a ethernet cable back to the router. Wire is more secure and faster.

You can get these PCI cards at the Big Box Store that has computer equipment. Generally, the sales personell there can also advise you. If they have a computer service department, they can even install the equipment for you and tell you how to make it work, for a small fee.

A NIC looks like a large telephone jack. A NIC category 5 port is called a RJ-45 while a phone jack is a RJ-11 and would be found on your modem, if so equipped. The phone wire will (RJ-11) will fit into a RJ-45 but please dont dxo it. Phone voltage in your computer NIC will fry everything.

I AM ON TOTAL BROADBAND HOW DO I CONNECT WIRELESS TO MY COMPUTOR


With a broadband connection you will need a wireless router (you will connect your broadband modem to the router) a wireless adaptor for every computer you want to be wireless. If you have a desktop you can either add a pci wireless card (you will need to open your pc and insert the card in a pci slot) or you can use a usb wireless adaptor.

Want to add port for utoorrent,also how to fix nat problem


If you are running a router (sometimes called wireless access point) at home, you will have to configure it to route all TCP / UDP BitTorrent traffic to port 55641 to your computer.When the router asks for a range of ports to forward, simply specify 55641 to 55641.It would be beneficial if you can let me know the type of router you are using so that i can provide step to step solution.

No ethernet port on older Dell desktop


Yes, all you need is a PCI ethernet card. You can pick them up rather cheap. Here is one. You basically plug it into an available PCI port on the inside of your computer. If XP doesn't automatically install it, just insert the included CD with the drivers on it and XP will do the rest. And remember to please give this answer a good rating of fixya. Thanks.

Dlink dir 300 internet problem


First you have to make sure that you connected it correctly. the cable coming out of the modem should be connected to the single port (Internet port) at the right when facing the back of the router.

All computers that are wired through it should be able to access the internet. if one of your computers cannot access the internet you may want to check the IP address that you are getting. (go to a command prompt and type ipconfig).

If you are connecting a wireless computer check the wireless security setting which you can find at the configuration (setup) page of the router. to access the configuration page check the owner's manual.

Local area connection, no internet connection


My guess is the LAN port on your motherboard is bad. The simple solution would be to add a PCI ethernet card and disable the one on your motherboard in device manager.

Set up ftp server behind the router


you need to set port forwarding for the correct ports, the default port number is 21. so you need to forward port 21 for 192.168.1.50

then go to www.whatismyip.com

copy your ip and add" :21 " without the " " in to the address so it looks something like this: 85.76.240.1:21

now your friend should be able to login from internet explorer for examble after typeing ftp://yourip:21 or from my computer by typeing ftp://yourip:21 into the address bar.

if you need more assistance let me know. im here to help.
Also if you are intrested we can try remote assistance to solve the problem but I would like some compensation for my time with remote control.

All started with wireless router (Belkin)


Actually, is does **t really matter what computer *********** in law has or whether she has a computer or **t. Your wireless connection is **t with her computer, it is with the router.

I take it for granted that the router has got a wireless facility , since you said you set it up. Your computer must then also be wireless enabled (internal or Using an USB Dongle).

Set the connection type on the router and your computer as such that there is ** authorization or encryption involved - once you got that working please the ensure that you activate authorization and encryption for security reasons
