HELP!!!!!
i am about to pull my hair out after 2 weeks of the same old problem. i got verizon dsl set up on my main comp and then set the linksys router up on the 2nd comp - all went well for about 2 days. now after many resets and several setting changes my IE refuses to work (i cannot get my 2nd comp online). the IE says: that it has encountered a problem and needs to close. main comp works fine - address/gateway is correct - comp can ping. any ideals????


THX,
Rhapsody :D

:D Networking is not one of my stronger suits but I think you would get better results if it is connected this way. ( :eek: I'm sure one of the networking guru's will correct me if I'm wrong).

The DSL cable (from wall) goes to the modem.

Connect an ethernet cable from the "ethernet out" jack on the modem to the "ethernet in" on the router.


Connect an ethernet cable from one "ethernet out" jack on the router to the NIC card on the main computer.

Connect an ethernet cable from another "ethernet out" jack on the router to the second computer.

Good luck.

All machines are must be in the same subnet, i.e. 192.168.0.x where x is any number. The subnet mask should be 255.255.255.0 for most small networks.

Turn off any firewalls for debugging. If the firewall is the problem, you'll have to configure it to allow access to "trusted zone" addresses.

PING each computer by IP address, and if successful, PING by name. You can obtain the IP address of a computer by opening a command prompt (DOS window) and typing IPCONFIG. This should work for any Windows version.

All computers should be in the same workgroup for computer browsing to function properly. File & Print Sharing has to be enabled on any computer you wish to share files or printers from. You also need to actually share the resource in question from My Computer, right click on the drive/printer/folder, and select sharing.

If you encounter difficulties accessing computers that are visible in Network Neighborhood, make sure the computer being accessed has an account with the same name/password as the system connecting to it uses to login.

While the default NetBIOS setting is correct for normal network configurations, it's possible for it to be altered, and it costs nothing to make sure it's correct. NETBIOS over TCP/IP must be enabled for normal network browsing.
