Re: Daisy-Chaining a HomeLink Phoneline Network
With a HomeLink card installed in your PC, connect your PC to a phone jack using a standard phone cable. Using another standard phone cable, connect the card's other phone cable port to connect to your second PC. Continue to connect up to twenty-five PCs in this way on one chain. If you want to use your telephone, modem, or fax machine, add a two-way splitter to your wall?s phone jack or connect the device to the empty phone jack in the last card at the end of your daisy chain.
Daisy-chaining your HomeLink PCs and peripherals can create a simple network that acts in the same way an Ethernet network acts on your PC's desktop. In a HomeLink network, data passes into one side of a port, and continues out from the port?s other side. You can string up to 25 PCs on a single HomeLink network, provided that the entire length of cable does not exceed 150 meters (500 feet).
HomeLink networks can send data through existing telephone lines without disrupting your telephone service. If you have PCs on two different floors of your house, plug one of the downstairs PCs into the phone jack in the wall, and you're able to network your PCs upstairs without running excessive amounts of extra cable.

if you are using dynamic ip address makes sure in that computer that are not connecting has no static ip address, go to my network places and hit propertis, and select tcp ip4 and hit properties, make sure its selected as dynamic not static, if this not working this means, there is cable problem, or network card problem. or try to change the port from the router could be the router port is bad.
It is not recommended to daisy chain subnets because the flow of information is slowed as well as transfer of information But if done properly by using routers as well as correctly identifying the flow of information with the use of static routing then that is the correct way of daisy chaining subnets.
The following routers are the only models that support the AOL Broadband Cable service.
Note: All Linksys routers support AOL DSL connections due to the standard PPPoE login and authentication connection type used with that service.
Please be sure to check the version number of your router (which can be found on the underside label). Only the specific models and versions listed here are supported by AOL Cable:
BEFW11S4 v2, v3, and v3.2
HPRO200 (Available from AOL only at this time)
You must Enable the "AOL Parental Controls" option located in the Security tab of the web-based Setup utility pages of these routers in order to get a connection using AOL Cable. You may access the utility by visiting http://192.168.1.1 in a web browser and by logging in using the router's password (by default, the password is admin).
