    Ok guys, here's a new on for you. I have a linksys 4-port router. Up until 2 days ago it was working fine. I decided to go wireless and bought a d-link wireless router and cards for my 2 computers. It refused to function in my house so I ditched it and decided to hard wire everything. When I hook my old router up it refuses to let both computers access the net. One computer can access the router, but cant access the net and one computer can access the net but not the router. I've tried everything I can think of all to no avail. Help!

    Something's misconfigured. Please post the current configurations.

    Exactly how is the network wired?

    I'm guessing that you have all of the devices plugged into the LAN port, which would give what you describe.

    Plug the broadband modem into the WAN port.
    Plug each of the computers into one of the LAN ports.

    Let us know if it works better. :)
