    I have 2 comps hooked up to a Linksys 4 Port router. I am using a cable modem. One comp is an Emachines eTower and is on Windows XP Pro and the other is a Compaq and using Windows ME. I hooked up the router and all the cables are working and all, except for the Compaq computer. I can connect fine to my comp that is Windows XP Pro but when I try to access the internet on the other computer it wont connect. If I open up IE then click tools>Internet Options> Connections I click on Seup and go through the steps of creating a LAN connection and it still doesn't work. When I look in the Dial up and Private Virtual Network settings there is nothing in there. When I try to add something to that nothing happens when I click the Add button. At the bottom of the Connections tab I click the LAN settings and check the box to automatically detect network settings and I still cant connect to the internet on that computer. I try to add a network by click Network Connections and then adding one but says it cant. I dont know what else to try now. Any help would be appreciative. Thanks for your time.

    I think you need to open network properties in CP and adjust the properties of TCP/IP protocol to the NIC. You want "Obtain IP address automatically", and NETBIOS over TCP/IP enabled, and you should be talking to the router.

    On the Win ME machine, Click Start > Settings > Control Panel.
    Double click Network.
    Look for your network adapter then look for the tcp/ip for the network adapter and double click it.
    Make sure you have Obtain IP address automatically selected.
    If it is, tell us everything that is listed in configuration?
