    Please supply the following info, exact make and models of the equipment please.

    Make and exact model of the broadband modem.
    Make and exact model of the router (if a separate unit).
    Model numbers can usually be obtained from the label on the device.
    Version and patch level of Windows on all affected machines, i.e. XP-Home (or XP-Pro), SP1-SP2, Vista, etc.

    Also, please give an exact description of your problem symptoms, including the exact text of any error messages.

    On each of the computers, I'd also like to see this:

    Hold the Windows key and press R, then type CMD to open a command prompt:

    Type the following commands:

    NBTSTAT -n


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

    If you are on a machine with no network connection, use a floppy, USB disk, or a CD-RW disk to transfer a text file with the information to allow pasting it here.
