Check with your routers settings that automatic DHCP is enabled, as this will allocate each laptop an individual IP Address. Also go to network connections in control panel and right click on your network card (not the wireless card, if you have inbuilt wireless), and make sure they are set on both laptops to 'automatically assign IP Address'. Also ensure that your wireless network cards are dissabled if you have them; as this can confuse laptops as to which network you wish to connect to, even if your router isn't wireless, it will be looking for a connection.

I have a gateway M675 portable desktop w/wireless to a gateway router WGR200. Recently could not access internet (dsl) so purchsed new modem from ATT. Now I have internet access when modem is plugged into...

Yes. You need to configure the router. Most of the new routers come with a cd that will guide you. You can also call ATT and they will guide you as well.

Hope that helps you.

Connecting Laptop wireless and Desktop wired to the router

Do you need to see the desktop or just share folders from each other? If the latter then you need to do the following:

Use Windows Explorer and select a folder you want to share. Right click and select sharing and security.

On the sharing tab click on Share this folder. Enter a share name ( I like to enter the PC name _folder name; Rick1_Downloads)

Click on Permissions. If your ok with everyone using the PC's and Laptops having access then highlight Everyone and click on Full Control.

Do this on each PC and Laptop.

That should be it or darned near close.

Connecting my dynamode 6004 W G1 wireless router to modem

Cable modems and routers must be turned on in a specific way. First, unplug both the router and modem. Next, plug the ethernet cable from the modem, into the cable router, and unplug the cable from the modem to the computer. Next, turn on the modem, and wait for all of the lights to stay static (usually there's 4 lights, the main one we're interested in, is the status light). Next, plug in and turn on your router. You should now be able to access the router and configure it for your internet connection.
