Hello! This is driving me and mostly my roommates nuts. I have Verizon DSL. I'm using an old Westell Wirespeed DSL modem and a Netgear WGT624v3 Wireless Router. As far as I can tell everything's configured correctly. However, ONLY ONE out of the three laptops in my apartment can connect at a time. If one person is online, no one else can connect. Basically, we've been yelling, "Hey! Is anyone online? ... No? Cool." or "Hey! Is anyone online? ... Ok. Let me know when you're off, so I can get on." It's insane. and I know it's possible for us all to be online at the same time. My laptop runs Windows XP. One roommate has Windows Vista and the other has a MAC. None of us have problems connecting, as long as one of the other two isn't online. My guess is that this is a router config issue. Any assistance would be GREATLY appreciated. Thank you.

This is usually caused by somebody connecting the modem to a router LAN port instead of the WAN port. If this is not the case with yours, please show for one of the PCs when it is connected ...

Start, Run, CMD, OK to open a command prompt:
(For Vista type CMD in the Search box after Start)

Type the following command:

IPCONFIG /ALL

[Note that there is no space between the slash and ALL.]

Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter.
Paste the results in a message here.

If necessary use a text file and removable media to copy the results to a computer with internet access.

You might also tell us the exact model of the modem.
