OK I will have to get one of these from eBay after Xmas, I must admit though it's all very confusing to me.

Need nont be, Dead simple realy, but then I know how to do it so it would be. When the time come I will guide you. The hard bit is setting up the network, but that a wizard anyway.
What I need to know is, what is your opperating system?
What you need to find out is :-
IP address of the modem you have, the way to find that out is open a broswer and in the address bar type 192.168.1.1 then 192.168.1.0 and see what happens.
Your user name and password for the ISP

Also try this.
Click on.
Start
Run
in the run box type cmd
a black box should open with white writting.
type in ipconfig and then hit enter.

write down what it says...IP address etc.
Quote:
I always thought that the router provided by the ISP must be used with their software.


Well they want you to thing that. USB connection will use system resources which you do not want.

More than lightly the router that you buy (if it's a good one) will have the software that will do all the above for you, all you will need to do is type in the relevant, such a IP address, username, password.

Buy a D-link, Netgear, Belkin,

heres a good one BT Voyager 2110 Wireless Network ADSL Router/Hub
Keep your eye on it.

Another here LINKSYS WIRELESS NETWORK ROUTER WITH 4 PORT SWITCH

Anyway that's the sort of thing you should be looking for. on ebay do a search for network routers, you need one with at least 4 ports, wireless if you plan to go that route.

Catch you later

That saves me the 600 mile round trip. :.:
But if you need my help, I'm only on the other end of this cable. 8)

Ok I've been having router traumas this afternoon.

I'm working from home again over most of the next two weeks, and i want to be able to run both computers at once.

Work laptop is connected to a Netgear Wireless and that works fine.
Home PC is connected to a speedgear USB modem - that works fine, but has processing drain issues.

I have tried to connect the Home PC to the router using the RJ cable and MSN and Outlook work fine, but no Internet.

Laptop works fine still - I had internet on Laptop, and MSN/Outlook on PC. I was getting a Forbidden - access control denied when I opened a browser.

Any clues anyone (for anyone read saviour...!)

Should not be a problem there!

OK,

USB WILL DRAIN it uses a lot of Windows resources, where’s a network will not.

Which router have you connect that to? WL or USB modem?
MSM & OL will work fine as they have the info already in their script. That you or someone must have put in.

Quote:

Not sure what you mean here. PC has MSM & OL running OK
Laptop has Internet, but forbidden. This has to be username/PW and IP are not setup right??

To recap, Laptop on WL
PC on USB but you have connected the PC using an RJ45 cable, here you will also have to setup a network.
Am I right in saying that the LT is your work unit and the PC is your own? If so then am also right in saying that the LT would have been set up by your work techeys?
What you need to do is have both units connected to the WL router, LT via WL and PC via RJ45, have you got the setup disk that came with the router? If not what is the Netgear MODEL number of the router?
You should be able to download the setup SW from their web site.
If you cannot get that then we will have to set it up manually. In which case you will need the following:-
Username, Password to the log in point, IE, ISP or work, and the IP.
To get the IP use the LT, by clicking on
START
RUN
In the box type cmd, when the black box come up type ipconfig, look there and you will see the IP address etc, write down all the numbers in this format.
xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx , may well be 192.168.1.1
It should look something like this.


Windows IP Configuration


Ethernet adapter Local Area Connection:

Connection-specific DNS Suffix . :
IP Address. . . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.1.2
Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . : 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.1.1

If you would rather talk PM me and I will send you my number.

Cheers - I thought you'd have some answers!! You can come back in and hang your coat up again.

I'll be back home tonight at some point and PM you then, but basically your right with what is connected to what.

I want to use the router as the sole net connection. The USB modem is a bit pointless and the Task manager shows it to be using too much CPU.
It works fine WL with laptop, whether I am connected to the corporate VPN or not, but when the Home PC is plugged into the router, it works with Outlook & MSN but when I connect to Internet Explorer I get the forbidden message on that. The network Connections shows connected via LAN.

I was on MSN to Dave last night having a bit of a strop about the whole thing - yesterday was not a good day!

It's all back to how it was before I started faffing around with it!
