Hi, The DVMRe manual states if connecting via ethernet port to use a Cat5 crossover connection. I have a 50' Cat6 ethernet crossover cable and a D-Link USB 2.0 ethernet Adapter. I connected both the DVMRe and my PC together with the ehternet adapter and crossover cable. I changed the ethernet settings in the DVMRe to talk with the USB ethernet adapter and still no network connectivity. I'm over my head, help.

Most desktops only have one ethernet port on their network interface cards. You can find this port on the back of the computer and is used for connecting to a network via an ethernet cable (CAT5/6/7). The port looks very much like a telephone port only larger as it has eight pins inside rather than than two or four for telephone ports. What is the model number of the computer and we can check whether you should have more than ethernet port or not.
It depends on the router but how I did it is
1. Connect the ethernet cable to the router, then the cable that came with the router to the router with one end, then plug the other end into the computer.
2. There should be a disk that you have to install which is the firmware for the router. Once this is done, it will automatically update from now on.
3. It should set up itself!
Hi, 1.Connect a Cat5 cable into the Ethernet port on the back of your cable or DSL modem. Plug the other end of the cable into the "Connect to Modem Internet/WAN" port on the back of the Belkin Router. 2.Connect a Cat5 cable into the "Ethernet" port on the back of any desktop or stationary computers and then plug the other end of the cable into one of the LAN ports on the back of the Belkin Router. Start with port one and work your way up with subsequent computer connections. 3.Turn the Belkin Router on by plugging the router into a power outlet. Allow 30 seconds for the router to fully boot up. All computers tethered to the modem via a Cat5 cable have access to the Internet. 4.Open the Wi-Fi Wizard on your laptop and turn on the Wi-Fi antenna. Once turned on, the Wizard finds all network connections in your area. Connect to your network to establish an Internet connection. Complete this step for each computer not tethered to the Belkin Router with a Cat5 cable.
I hope you are trying to connect two PC using LAN. For that you will need the following
1) One Cat5/Cat6 Ethernet cable with Cross connected RJ-45 connectors at both end,
2 You need to assign IP adresses to both of your PCs.
You can use the following two IP addresses for your two PC
You can assign IP address by Control Panel -> Network Connection -> Right Click on Local Area Connection, -> Select Properties -> Select Internet Protocol and Click Properties -> Select Use the following IP address. Then type the IP address mentioned above. Press Tab when you are done. The Subnet mask will be automatically filled.
Note that you have to use two different IPs for two PCs.
Cable has changed it's policy and standards many times in the past
if you have a cable modem you will most certanly need to decide
if you're going to be using the cat5 ethernet connection or the USB connection cable
if you have an onboard ethernet adaptor or a PCI ethernet adaptor
it's best if you use the cat5 connection of the cable modem
if you have no ethernet adaptor , you will need to use the USB connection of the cable modem
and connect that to your computer , which will most deffinately require that you have working
USB ports and at least service pack 2 loaded to enable USB 2.0 , and a driver from the cable
modems driver CD
if you're using a router , use the cat5 connection of the cable modem
( make sure you contact your ISP to walk you through the setup proceedures )
Technically, yes. Both computers should have an Ethernet port (LAN), a crossover networking cable, peer to peer networking using static IP add, and Internet Connection Sharing on the PC with the Wireless Internet Connection. If by chance the PC with the Internet access is already using its Ethernet port, a second NIC could be installed.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
I have done what you are talking about with making the one router act as a network bridge. It is a pain in the **** to do but with enough time it can be done. The main things you need to do are:
Configure the 2nd router as a bridge/access point.
Disable DHCP on that router and give it a static IP address on the same subnet as your main router.
Use the same exact wireless encryption for both routers. I believe I used WPA2 and set the passwords for both to be the same key.
LOL. It is a pretty involved project and took me a little bit. The only reason I did this in the first place was I promised my gf that I wouldn't spend 100$ to get my XBOX360 online and since I had a spare wireless laying around I decided to see if it could be done. I'll see if I can dig up a few sites I visited that helped me along the way. Good luck!
