if you are using IP phone, make sure that you connect the Ethernet cable (yellow cable) from the modem or router to the LAN part of it whereas another Ethernet cable (blue cable) is connected from the IP Phone to your PC Desktop.. This connection will surely connect your phone to internet and to your PC...
every computer has an ip adress you might have to go to your internet setting and find some thing that says some thing like... internet adress hook up hopefully you keep files on your computer becuase with out your ip adress you might not be able to hook up its sorta like a combination hope it helpes:)
It could be. Check your Device Manager and make sure the device isn't disabled. Also each adapter has its own TCP/IP settings so make sure yours on your ethernet adapter are set the same as your USB adapter that is working. If it does turn out to be bad you can always add a new ethernet card for cheap.
router talks to your provider and gets IP address from them, depending on your subscription, you may have a static or dynamic IP.
your computer gets internal (home network) IP from the router, you don't have to worry about that since it is the router's IP address that is seen on the internet (router splits / shares a single internet connection in home networks).
about wireless connection from computers/wi-fi gadgets to the router, must configure the router with the ff:
wireless network name (aka SSID) security type (WPA/WEP) and password/passphrase/security key channel (1-12)
the above info must be then set to the connecting computers/gadgets
about wired connection: a working ethernet cable (looks like a phone cord but fatter) and a working computer/gadget ethernet port.
Wii will work - check Wii's website for connectivity options / instructions.
Possible three (3) solutions: 1. Purchase and install a PCI LAN card (NIC) inside your "old tower". Should not be that difficult using any available PCI slot. Most would be auto detect/install by Windows (XP) or should come with a driver CD; 2. Use a USB to Ethernet adapter/converter; and/or 3. Use static IP address for the tower Same IP add (+1 on the last
digit, same Subnet Mask, Default Gateway and DNS (if any). Should you
need additional information on this method you need to post back
details of your modem (brand/model, normally in a sticker underneath) so we can determine if it will allow simultaneous connection on USB & LAN.
Hope this be of help/idea. Pls post back should you need additional information.
When dealing with a router there are multiple IP address scenarios, on the internet service provider's (ISP) side you can have either a static or dynamic IP address. I believe most routers by default are set to accept a dynamic IP address from the ISP. Where the ISP permits the router can also assign IP addresses to each device that attaches to it allowing a single ISP connection to be shared by multiple computers. This is also generally the default for routers purchased for home use and the wireless adapters also accept the dynamic IP assignment from the Router. With the logical discussion out of the way I believe you wish to discuss the physical connections to be established. Again this is a generic discussion not knowing your specific environment. port types - I will refer to phone ports (technically RJ-11 either two or 4 wires (these cables plug snugly into phone jacks and modem connectors) and ethernet ports (technically RJ-45 which are 8 wires and to big to fit in phone and modem ports) First you have a connection provided by the ISP for DSL this is your phone line where filters are attached to your voice phones and an unfiltered phone connection goes into the DSL modem's phone port often with an ethernet port. If you have cable generally the cable company provides a connection to a cable modem which has an ethernet or other port to connect to your system. The ethernet port generally connects to the wan port (generally separate) of your wrt54g router with an ethernet cable. Computers can be attached to the wrt54g router using the 4 ethernet ports in a group provided they have an ethernet port too. Wireless cards connect to the wrt54g router through radio waves and with antennas on the router and often internal to the wireless adapter (often embedded in a notebook computer today). These details are enclosed with your ISP's instructions and the Linksys router instructions often with pictures to help the explanation.
