Can I Share Dsl Using Only A N/w Switch

AnonymousDec 4, 2006, 2:09 AM Just buy any home router (wired or wireless) power off the DSL modem, connect the DSL modem to the router's Internet port, connect the 2 PCs I took my modem, unplugged the usb from my first computer and brought it across the hall to my second computer. These are usually orange or red cables (whereas regular CAT5 is blue or grey). Is there any such product?

I have a similar problem as John Porter. I currently have a wireless router in my home office. Each criterion carries equal weighting (i.e. 20% of the overall mark), items 2 – 5 in the above list relate to the module learning outcomes in order; the outline proposal addresses Thank you for any assistance you may be able to provide. https://forums.techguy.org/threads/can-i-share-dsl-using-only-a-n-w-switch.673523/

This seems stupid, and even though this is not about my Netgear is particular maybe it applys to mine. the internet is working fine, but the file sharing isn't. My aim of writting you this letter is that, I am a young man of 22years old who want to learn about networking. Once I moved the router closer to the centre of the house, I had a much stronger connection.

  • You see that modem will only run with either the eithernet OR the USB and not both.From the manual"Ethernet and USB connectivity.
  • Sharing the speakers between two computers Accessing/ Sharing Two computers with common Internet Connection Two Computers sharing the Net More resources See also Rundown on sharing between two xp pro computers
  • Many DSL modems are actually routers, but without any information, it's hard to say.

This configuration worked well until my kids decided that they needed computers in their bedrooms, which are on the house's second floor. Paul -The Mad Hatter08-29-01, 12:25 AMwell i think i'm going w/ the router. If wireless connectivity is necessary, consider using multiple access points for complete coverage. If you don't have a hub or ethernet switch, you need one, particularly if you don't have enough ports on the router for all the machines that need to connect to

I am thinking about adding another computer for my other sons' in their room which is next to the room with the other two computers divided by a bathroom. can you tell me in full detail Report aarthi- Nov 30, 2012 02:23AM Thkz sam,really so useful.

With all Windows (windows xp professional or windows home xp sp 2)laptops I get half the speed for wireless (3 mbps) compared to wired? Is it possible if you can tell me what I should do with my new company I am about to set up on one level floor, which is situated on level How do I set it up to do this. This process shows you how well the wireless connection will work.

NOTE: if the uplink port is shared with a regular port, use only one at a time (ie: if the uplink is shared w/ port 1, use only the uplink or I need your assistance to set up my home network.

Hopefully you can help me out in planning this floor plan. The most obvious difference between wired and wireless networking is speed. The OP asked to keep it simple.If you ignore the links on the top of the page, there were only 8 links and not 10,000. :wink: GrumpyYeah, I exaggerate... I was, however, most intregued by your pass-time, the car project.

The router protects your network from nasty packets on the internet by blocking them (which is called being a firewall) and, perhaps more important to the rest of us and your PC - 1: - Go to My Computer > Properties > Computer Name. - Change the Computer Name to A and Workgroup name to ABC and click OK to save changes. In most cases, you could then plug more PCs into the other 6 ports on your 8-port switch, and then you'd be sharing the one internet connection among all of the All pcs running win xp pro, on same subnet within same workgroup, etc., etc.

Ethernet is highly recommended, does not require drivers, and is not dependent on any particular OS. Power cycle the router after the cable/dsl modem - the router needs to obtain its new WAN/Internet IP address from the cable/dsl modem.

What OS's are you running?Or, you could use the USB port for the second computer; refer to your documentation on how to set that up.I recommend the ethernet switch since it

Minimal electrical and metal interference made this location more effective for wireless connectivity. If you wre to sell your PC and buy another, you'd have to tell the ISP that you had a new MAC address, or you could spoof the old address.Now in Any ideas how to fix this? I don't think so but want to be sure.

A common bandwidth for LAN-based streaming video is 300Kbps, so at best, you can play four concurrent streams at full bandwidth. I use linksys WRT54G router. All you would have to do is enable SHARING on both PC's (you mentioned you are using XP - on both PC's ??). My home is a contemporary wood frame structure with a full basement, which makes wiring the house much easier.

A wired 100Mbps network gives you at least nine times the theoretical network bandwidth, but pulling network cable might not be practical or possible in your networking environment. The second difference between wired and wireless networks is convenience: Not needing to run wires is obviously an attractive proposition. The designers have installed a wired (Cat 5 Ethernet) facility in the first stage of the development, but for a variety of reasons, they are considering wireless (802.11 a/b) connectivity for and more over if I used pen Drive it will be infected by virus so I decieded to go in for net-work cable but I dont know how to do it.
