Using both USB and Ethernet to connect to the internet
i have 2 pcs that i use to connect to the internet, i currently use a paradyne 6381-a3 router/modem to connect to the internet (adsl), it is configured as a bridge and dhcp is enabled. i am using the ethernet port to connect and it assigns ip addresses automatically when connected to a pc, however only one pc can be used at one time.
i want to to use both usb and ethernet ports on the router to connect both pcs at the same time. is that possible? one pc will connect via ethernet and the other via usb, simultaneously.
please assist in a solution, any help will be appreciated.

To configure your router, open your web browser. Type the default IP address (http://192.168.1.1) into the Location field of your browser and press the Enter key. A Login screen will appear. Use the below to log into your router.
The default IP address is 192.168.1.1
The default user name is Admin
The default password is Admin
Hi; I have used it with both ethernet and usb connections at the same time. I have never used the bridge, but I use it at home.
Try this ( I have XP SP3): Right-click on the monitors where the clock is (lower right corner), select "Open Network Connections". Go to the LAN connection and r-click "Properties". On the "general" tab select "Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)". There you select "Obtain IP address automatically" and "Obtain DNS server automatically" then click "Ok" until exit. Either Shut Down or Restart the PC. Check if this work.
assuming that you are plugged into your router and it has dhcp enabled...
IN WINDOWS XP: go to start menu --> run --> type "cmd.exe" in the text field (a black window should pop up) --> in the black window type "ipconfig" (it will display your current network settings) --> look for where is says "Default Gateway" as the number to the left of it is your routers internal ipaddress
If I understand you right, what you want is to use your Paradyne 6211 modem to share the Internet connection to 2 PCs. One is connected through the USB and the second through Ethernet port.
Tried it on a Siemens 4200 and a Prolink Hurricane 9000, both worked and can be done. To be sure, the IP settings of the PC connected via Ethernet was set to manual configuration. In your case try IP 192.168.1.3, Subnet Mask 255.255.255.0, Default Gateway 192.168.1.1, DNS Servers - whatever your ISP are using. You of course can try and see if it works in your modem.
Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.
