Question about Computers & Internet
Lets see if you can offer me some assistance. Im at work and im trying to connect one of our desktops through another computer, i bought the leviton router and was basically going to use the router as a splitter. Before I drilled holes in walls to pull the cord through I gave it a dry run and looped it back to the computer that had the internet to begin with i just put the router in line. ex. Wall Jack---------Router--------computer.
My intentions were.... wall jack-----Router---------Computer #1
Guess what.... it dint work, I was getting no packets back to computer#1?
is this router even compatable? whats going on boss?
Where does the cable from the wall jack come from? A switch that is connected to the Internet?
For the Internet to work with router, you need to have a modem that is connected to Internet already, meaning ISP knows about the router via MAC address, and from the modem use an ethernet cable to connect router port called "Internet" or "WAN". then from an open port in back of router another ethernet cable to your NIC in back of computer.
