Sharing usb modem internet connection with wireless router

Q: Sharing usb modem internet connection with wireless router

Hi. Is it possible to create a network between two laptops and share the internet signal from a 3g usb mobile broadband connection. I've been trying to accomplish this with a TP-Link TL-WR641G router with no success. I've trawled several forums but can't really find a definitive answer. Any help would be much appreciated.

I know this topic has been on here before, but I can't find one specific to mine. Here's what's going on:

I had my desktop & wireless router all hooked up (DSL internet) and running fine in one room. I moved the desktop to another room, so i disconnected everything to move it and hooked it back up in the new room (different phone jack).

When the wires are plugged in, it registers on the modem and on the router that I have the internet connection.

The Desktop picks up the LAC but I'm assuming its just picking up the router power and not the actual connection, because it will not let me connect to the internet.

The laptop connects to the network but not the internet.

I have the DSL line plugged into the modem; a network cable running from that to the 'internet' port on the router, and another ethernet cable running from an ethernet port on the router to the network port on the pc (sounds right, right?) lol.

Here's the catch...If I disconnect the router altogether, and connect the network cable directly from the modem to the pc or laptop, viola I can access the internet.

As you can probably tell, I've done lots of trial & error in this process. I'm thinking there's a setup or configuring thing I may be missing. I guess my mind is thinking that something like that shouldn't have to be done considering it's all hardware that was connected and installed and configured before. I'm not ... Read more

A:Internet connection on wireless router & modem, but no access

Reset the wireless router back to factory default settings. Then reconfigure it back. I would backup your settings first though on the router. That feature is hidden in the tools tab on the router. Did you have the power go out or what happen prior to this?

hi i have had the Belkin ADSL Modem with Wireless-G Router for a while now and have had a tesco's 2.2mbs connection but i have just upgreaded to a tiscali 8mbs connection, i no i can get the full 8mbs speed through the supplied modem but am just wonederind if the Belkin ADSL Modem with Wireless-G Router's buitl in modem is fast enogh to get the full 8mps or if it wil run slower. would be great to no i was just wondering


There THe belkin modem/gateway shouldnt limit your speed capabilities. You should be able to find the speed listed inside the modem's status page. To do this..
Click start>run>In run type CMD
In the black window type IPCONFIG and then enter. Note down your default gateway.
Open a browser window and enter the gateway's address into it. Click go
This should take you to your gateways graphical user interface.
Look for a status tab or see if it lists connection speeds on the general page.

Also you can test speeds at different sites. Google search broadband speed test and choose 1 of the millions of sites

Immediately after a power outage, my internet connection predictably drops after a set period of time or usage. It is either after about 30 min or 5-15 mins of watching Netflix. I have a modem hooked up to a wireless router and use the network on my iPhone, laptop and Roku. Since the problem, I have dropped to just having my laptop connected but this has not helped. The wireless network will disappear after the 5 - 20 mins, the light on the modem and router will show no internet (all other lights are normal). Internet connection will be reestablished if I either unplug both the modem and the router (not just one or the other) OR if I unplug the ethernet line from the modem to the router and plug it directly into my laptop (the internet light on the modem will go from "off" to "on"). Despite internet connection working from transferring from the router to the laptop if I connect it back to the router, the internet lights goes off again (resolves upon unplugging and plugging modem and router back in). The internet has not yet dropped when it is physically plugged into my laptop.

I have tried the following:
-Powercycling (temp fix until it crashes again)
-Plugging into a different outlet (I cannot connect it to a different phone line, only have 1 with DSL. Also, I do not have phone service or cable, just internet via DSL)
-Resetting modem
-Resetting 2 different routers
-Calling ISP, their test of the modem was inconclusive

I was thinking electrical just from the thread title. Reinforced by your first five words: "Immediately after a power outage."

Whether the Westell and/or Linksys is damaged or if the whole cause is the "funny" electrical system I cannot tell. I think you should have a qualified electrician check out the system.

You tried PPPoE where? Unless you have the Westell bridged the PPPoE is specified in the WAN section of its router portion.

Hi all,

Hoping someone can help me. I'm not the world's greatest computer girl but I know enough to be good at following directions

I have Comcast internet including a modem and router, both installed by the company around 6 months ago (details below). A few times recently, I will suddenly lose connectivity. My laptop wireless connection shows that I am connected but "No Internet Connection." Laptop browsers, as well as my consoles (so I know it's not just the PC) all show DNS errors.

RCA modem
Model DCM425
MAC 001E69165148

Netgear wireless router
MAC A021B796DCE0
Of course it seems to happen on Friday afternoons when I get home from work, requiring a service visit on Sunday at the earliest, and resulting in potential service charges and (WORST) a whole weekend with no internet.

I've spoken to multiple Comcast reps and all they do is push a new signal to the box. When that doesn't work, it seems they just want to get me off the phone asap, and schedule a service call. Last time, the guy came to my house, and ended up solving it by unplugging everything. He said to try this and "pray." Well I've tried to no avail. I'm piggybacking on someone else's connection now and hoping they don't kick me off before my conference calls (and gaming <_<) this weekend.

I'll be eternally grateful if someone can help me. Let me know any info I can provide.

ok right to it: I have a 3g usb modem that i use to connect to the internet. That connection is shared to my wlan connection that connects to my ddwrt router which is used for home networking and internet sharing.. It would look something like this:


My problem is that i have trouble accessing the admin area of my router at when my 3g internet is connected or accesing the internet when i can access the admin area ( depending which connection is on top of the list in advanced network settings -> adapter and bindings). What do you think would be the easiest way to solve this and to setup 3g internet sharing most efficiently?

Hope this isn't confusing but, my internet provider (my cable company) came in to set up a wireless modem/router when we upped our internet speed today. We have three desktop computers which are hard wired to our existing Linksys router which we have been using previously. Would it be in our best interest to turn off the wireless function of that router (it's hooked up to the new modem/wireless router so the hardwired computers can function since the new unit has no ports to plug in the desktop computers into). Our wireless devices are all 'connected' to the new modem/router (using its passphrase and SSID). Can the wireless capabilities of each interfere with each other? They are sitting right next to each other.

A:Solved: Internet provider wireless modem/router and my hard wired router

It's confusing to me, but can make two comments ...

a. If you are not using the wireless network of a router it's best to disable or turn off the wireless--saves electricity and should extend the life of the router.

b. Two wireless networks whose channel numbers are less than five from each other can interfere. In North America if possible use channels 1, 6 and 11 to guarantee non interference.

Hi Folks,

After too many hours of reading and trying various things. It appears that Internet Connection Sharing (ICS) from USB 3G Modems has been broken in Windows 8.1.

On my Desktop PC, which uses Windows 2000 Server, I am able to share a Huawei E156B USB 3G Modem to 1 of the Ethernet ports to which is connected a Netgear Router with 4 LAN ports and a Wireless Antenna which broadcasts a signal that can be used by my smartphone.

On my recently acquired Lenovo B590 Laptop, I use the same SIM chip in a Huawei E3131 USB 3G Modem but have not been able to share the connection with the Ethernet port. I get the dreaded Unidentified Network and Limited connection statuses.

I tried the older modem but it doesn't appear to be compatible and I couldn't find any drivers for it for Windows 8.1.

I also tried sharing to an Ad Hoc Connection as the Laptop also has a Wireless NIC (Network Interface Card). The phone can see the signal broadcast by the Wireless NIC but is not able to communicate with the Internet.

I have tested the E3131 USB modem with the Netgear router with a friend's Dell Inspiron 1545 that has Windows Vista installed and I was able to establish the sharing of the Internet Connection to the Router and hence could also access the Internet with the smartphone.

As soon as I am able I will perform the same test on the Laptop, of another friend, which has Windows 7 installed.

Given that adding an Ad Hoc connection was removed from the GUI interface of Windows 8.1, I am ... Read more

A:Windows 8.1 - Internet Connection Sharing - USB 3G Modem


Following up on the idea that maybe the Firmware or Connection Manager software needed updating, I did some more searching in this regard. I didn't find any recently listed drivers for my modem but on searching for a Windows 8.1 version of Mobile Partner, Huawei's Connection Manager, I discovered the following page.

Mobile Partner Version Released | HuaweiNews

This provided a later version than the customised version provided by my ISP. With mention of WiFi Direct on the above page, I was cautiously hopeful that I may have found the solution I was looking for.

So, I installed the latest version and configured it the same as that which was provided by my ISP and BINGO.

I was able to share the connection with my Ethernet port and hence the smartphone could access the Internet via the wireless signal from the router.

I still need to test whether I can also share the connection to the Wireless NIC. I'll report back soon.

Just purchased a Linksys WRT54G2 router so my wife can surf indepently in the house. The problem is that in trying to connect with the installation software I cannot find connection instructions. This is because 2 years ago when my daughter was home with her laptop computer we connected a very similar Linksys router. When I insert the CD-ROM to get instructions the software says "it appears you already have a router connected." and since this is the only way to make the connections I have to try and find the proper connection method here. The dsl modem is a Westell 6100.

OK, I'm having some trouble with my DSL connection. Right now it's working, but it's starting to slow down again which means that I'm soon to be disconnected totally. My provider says that nothing is wrong on their end (which I've confirmed with 2 neighbors) so it must be on my end.

My connection starts to work REALLY slowly and then eventually just quits working altogether. My "status" light on my DSL modem/router is completely black, the other lights are green, however, the LAN light is blinking furiously (I don't really know if it's always been that way or not... )

Anyway, I called the "tech support" people at my provider, and they walked me though some steps that seemed to alleviate the problem for now, but I want it stopped permanently!

I put in the "IP address" (shown on the IPconfig command prompt) into firefox's address bar and it pulled up the Zoom information page and I went to the system status portion like I was told to do, but there was NO IP ADDRESS!! NONE!! So we cycled the modem--nothing. We powered down the computers--nothing. I unplugged the ethernet cable from one port and moved it to another--PRESTO!! The internet works again!

I'm not even sure why this worked the way it did, because my laptop is wirelessly connected....why did changing the port of my desktop do anything? Or was it just chance? And how do I keep this from happening? Ideas?? Suggestions?? Anyone??

OK, here's the situation. I have a Dell E1505 laptop with Windows Vista that I use as my main computer. I am connected to the internet with a 2wire2701HG-T router/modem. I just bought a Acer Aspire One D250 with Windows 7 Starter and connected it wirelessly to the network. Now, however, when the Dell is connected to the modem by ethernet, my preferred connection for security, speed, and battery issues, the internet connection on the Acer slows down to nothing and soon disconnects. After a bit, it reconnects, but is still very slow, only to disconnect again. However, when I connect the Dell by wireless, everything works normally. Is this a modem problem, or is it an issue with one of the computers? I must admit, my networking skills don't go beyond being able to set up a network name and password.

Hi guys,

a bunch of my friends are sharing an apartment which has a cable modem 'net connection this summer. One of the guys brought his wireless access point (Dlink DWL-1000AP) but as we've already found out, we can't share the cable modem connection wirelessly with it alone.

We realised we need a router so we're gonna buy one 2nd hand (looking at the 4 port Linksys one). My question is this : Do I use a "normal" cable to connect the router to the wireless access point, or do I need to use a "cross-over" cable.

Also, do I need to get anything else? Will the router+wireless access point function just like a wireless router?



A:sharing 'net connection with wireless access point (NOT router)

The wireless point is enable users with wireless cards to make connection to the router "WITHOUT" a cable.

You are right in thinking a router is needed for several PCs to share an incoming line.

You can still make connection to the router to pick up the signal by a physical cable (RJ45). However if the router is in another room a wireless card is a much neater solution. The wireless card makes the connection to the wireless access point which you have already got now.

One more thing you need to know the transmission capability of the wireless access point. It should either be 802.11b or 802.11g. The latter is 5 times faster. The wireless cards should be compatible without saying.

Recently I have set up 2 PCs trying to connect to internet sharing a single broadband, using Win98SE's ICS.

After setting up host PC and client PC, I could not get the client PC to go to the internet.

I suspect it is the DSL Modem/Bridge which does not support NAT, hence does not allow internet connection sharing. I checked my DSL modem, it is a Prolink Hurricane 9000/B, the manual says it is in Bridge mode, no router mode.

The funny thing is I am able to connect to Internet using this DSL modem, but my client PC can't.

Pls help. In dire straits. Any other solution? Such as using a 5 port switch?


A:DSL Modem/Bridge does not support Internet Connection Sharing?

If you are using Windows ICS then your modem doesn't have to support anything. It is the computer you are running ICS on that does the routing.

What exactly did you do trying to get the connection sharing going?

You will save yourself from a lot of headaches by getting a router. Either a small box from a store or any old junk PC with some firewall on it.

Switch off all the devices modem, router and computers also unplug their power cables.
Wait at least 1 to 5 minutes. We have found in some instances you need to wait at least 15 minutes
Plug the power cords back in, but don&#8217;t switch them on.
First turn on the modem and then wait for a few minutes for it to settle and all the lights to become stable.
Next switch on the router (if a separate device) and then wait for a few minutes for it to settle and all the lights to become stable.
Now turn on your computer, You should now be able to access the Internet.

I have a Sierra Wireless Internet Card (USB) that is connected to my desktop computer. I also have a wireless network setup, and working, in my home with a Linksys WRT54G Router. The network works perfectly with respect to connecting my computers (Dell Desktop - wired & Mac Laptop - wireless) and sharing files. The internet works perfectly on the desktop computer where it is plugged in and I have designated the internet connection as shared but for some reason the Mac Laptop cannot access the internet connection through the wireless router.

I had previously set the network up with a DSL modem that was plugged directly into the router but I cannot do that this time as the AirCard is USB only. I also, eons ago, had the same type of network setup with dialup to the desktop computer and was able to share that. I've set it up exactly the same but no luck.

Could someone tell me what I am doing wrong? Thanks!

Hello,I have replaced our old router with a new one and can't seem to get it to work.I have a Sierra Wiress 306 3g Modem, connected with Bigpond. It is working when plugged directly into the computer via USB.I had it plugged into a Netcomm router, which was ethernet cable connected to the destop and also our TIVO device. I was able to link o the internet wirelessly from my laptop - though not if someone was using the desktop at the same time. I suspect an IP address conflict was at fault here, though had no clue how to fix that.My actual problem is my Netcom router no longer works and I've had to purchase another. When I plug my router into the computer I get an error message saying there is another computer on this network with the IP address.... but I tried to change the IP address of the router, to no avail....I returned that router and got another and ended up with the same problem. Something tells me there's nothing wrong with the router or my computer, but perhaps it's my incompetence.That's where you come in...Thanks,Jennifer.

Hi all,
My dad recently brought a Belkin N+ wireless modem router for my parents home and asked me to set it up for him (as he is not very tech-savy). I set the router up with no problems whilst the rents were away in Malta on holiday and had no problems for about 4 days.

When they arrived back the internet was still fine until the next day when for no apparent reason the connection dropped and i had to power cycle it to make it work again. Now at least once a say the router will drop the connection and i have no idea why. I have tried every logical combination of settings and i cannot stop it from dropping the connection.

I've called up Belkin tech support but they were useless and told me to try everything I have already tried which is:

Static IP.
Fixed DNS.
Power cycling.
Firmware update.
Checking the log file.
Restoring defaults.
Turning the firewall off.
Adding MAC addresses of the relevant computers to the routers "safe" list.
Port forwarding ...

And the list goes on.

All i can think of now is to call BT and post my Router settings here (these are the most stable settings i've found so far).
Can someone please check out these settings and make sure i haven't done somethign incredibly stupid? I am a software engineering student and fairly confident of my abilities but it would be nice to have another opinion (not Belkins).

There is a guy im trying to help get his cable internet connection shared between two computers. He says that his cable modem is connected to a router or hub( he wasnt able to specify, he said that it was compaq netilligent or somthing like that) and that that hub/router is connected to both computers through network card but he can only access the internet through one computer. I told him that in order to share the internet connection he needed 2 network cards in the host computer, one connected to the internet and one connected to the second computer.
He said that he recalled that the computers used to share internet connection connected in the say way that they are connected today, having the modem connected to the router/hub and then the two computers connected to the hub. But he said that one of the computers needed to be turned on if the other computer wanted to use the internet. This made me guess that he was sharing the connection with one computer as host and the other as client. But how do you do this only with one network card in the host computer?

A:sharing internet connection with router

Hazarding a guess, I'd say he did it by getting the one 'puter to dial up to the net, and then both could use it...

It should be possible to get the router (if that's what it is) to dial up to the net, and thus letting both 'puters access the net, though it'll have to support cable access...

To fully answer the Q, we'll have to have more info.. About the router/2 cans with string between them/hub, what kind of connection (s)he had before, how he connects now, and last, what systems (s)he's using...

If the first part of this post doesn't make much sense, just answer the latter part... (Of the last 90 hours, I've only slept 12 )

We have three 64 bit Window 7 machines on an Ethernet wireless/wired router (ASUS WL-520GC). Worked great? one of the three computers hosts a USB printer and shares with no problems (via a HomeGroup).

We had a broadband power line modem on the same Ethernet network connection and all three computers had sharing of the WAN internet? then we lost our internet connection capability when our supplier went bust!

We are now using a Verizon Wireless USB 720 broadband modem on the same computer that hosts the printer. That computer has internet connection and works fine. We cannot get the remaining two computers to see the internet.

Bridging the Verizon USB ?Home? network and the Ethernet ?Public? network doesn?t seem to work because we can?t set the local area network to ?Home.?

Any suggestions?

A:Internet sharing a Verizon Wireless USB modem and an Ethernet network

If I was going to use a Verizon USB modem on a network, I would use a router that you plug the modem into. Check out http://www.cradlepoint.com/ or do a Google search. I remember seeing routers for USB modems (cell service) for as low as $35, but most users recommend Cradlepoint routers.

If you are still on the Verizon 30 trial, you should check out http://www.millenicom.com/, Millenicom has no contract and much higher usage caps, even unlimited using Verizon and Sprint service.

just purchased d-link 6401 cable router and can't connect to internet. The router isn't able to get a new IP address from the modem using DHCP. I've tried the "clone MAC address" function on the 2nd pc. When I try to clone the first pc's MAC address (which was using the cable modem initially) I get an incorrect MAC ID error from D-Link's software. Also, I am able to see both pc's on the LAN workgroup, but the permissions to access each other haven't been set yet. I didn't think the persmissions to each other would cause any problems with the router not taking an IP. Any suggestions?

I have windows 7 Pro installed. I have a DSL connection that requires a username and password. I have read the tutorials for setting up ICS in windows 7, but it is not working for me. In my 'change adapter settings' page, I have 3 connections: LAN, Wireless and M 1 (this is the dial-up for the username and password). Here's what I have done:

I have enabled ICS for M 1, and created an ad-hoc wireless connection called 'M network'. I basically want to share my wired connection with my iPhone. Everything is ok as far as connecting my iPhone to M network, but when I try to use the internet, all i get is a 'connecting' message on my phone, and it doesnt go any further. I have used this network before to connect 'air mouse' on my phone that lets me use my phone as a touchpad. It still works fine that way, but I cant use internet.

I have even tried enabling the ICS on LAN instead, but got the same results.

Am I doing something wrong?

I switched to a wireless Linksys router from a crossover cable connection, and now file/printer sharing on my XP + Vista network isn't working. They can ping each other by ip address (not by name), and I've turned off firewalls, and the XP machine can see the Vista machine but not vice versa. Does anyone have any idea what I can try here? Thank you.

I have this problem with my home wireless network for quite sometime. I am using cable broadband with the motorola modem and aztech router.

The problem is that my internet connection drops suddenly everyday... I will power off my modem and router, restart it but still cannot get internet access. after a few tries, it might come back...

I have tested my router at my friend's place and it is working fine. So i thought it's the modem problem, so i also went to test the modem at my friend's place and it's working fine too. I even bought new ethernet cable.

I do not know much about hardwares and wireless networking. I do hope I can find the problem and get it solved soon...

A:working router and modem but no internet connection

how many pcs are connected on your network and do they all work ok except yours ?

would you post the following tests when the internet is working OK, and then repeat ALL the tests when the internet disconnects.
Make sure you also indicate on the reply which tests are for what condition.

As you are connected by wireless, please include the xirrus screen shots for both conditions - see how below.

Please post back here the make and exact model of the router and the make and exact model of the modem.

Please make a note of the status of the lights on the modem and on the router when working normally - post that light status here.
Now when the internet disconnects make a note of the status of the lights for the modem and router here again. also note which have changed.

What firewall / security suite or anti-virus do you currently have on the PC - or you have ever had on the PC in the past - any trial ware - like Norton, Mcafee , AVG etc

ipconfig /all
If you cannot access the internet with this PC, then you will need to paste the results into something like notepad and then copy onto a machine that can access the internet and post the results in a reply here.
Save the file to a USB flash drive or other removable media. Plug it into the working computer with internet access and copy the file and paste here.

I'm having problems with my internet connection and modem/router. It's an Actiontec gt704wg, which serves as both a modem and wireless router. One computer is connected directly to the router and 2 others use wireless. The connection just randomly cuts off, the internet light goes blank, the dsl light flashes, and then it takes about 15-25 seconds to reconnect. I get tons of static on my phones, and the frequency of disconnecting goes up whenever i get/make a phone call. In addition, when I connect the other computers wirelessly, i get tremendous delays and more disconnections, and it takes several minutes to reconnect. The router's not old, about a year, and I've had no problems with it until recently. I've changed all my dsl phone filters, so I know it's not that. Can anyone help me?

A:internet connection, Router/modem problems

It sounds to me like something wrong with the router or, less likely, wireless interference. Looking at the second one first, do you detect any other wireless networks on your same or close to your channel? Any 2.4Ghz cordless phone?

Next I suggest looking for a firmware update for the router. And my final (at least for now) suggestion is to reset the router to factory default settings and reconfigure.

I am having the exact problem (krustyzworld) had. I have an ATT 2701 2 wire modem/router that drops off when I use my wireless laptop, it works fine when I use a Ethernet cable connection. I have tried a second ATT 2701 with the same results. The only difference between (krustyzworld) and myself is I have the correct power source and my power light don't change (it stays on steady). What happens to me is that first the internet light goes out than the green dsl light goes flashing red, in less than a minute everthing returns to normal until the next random drop off.

Iím trying to install a domestic network with an ADSL Modem and a Wireless Router and I canít get connected to the Internet.

ADSL Modem connected to the telephone line.
Wireless Router connected to the Modem.
Two PCs Windows XP connected to the Router (Ethernet 10/100).
Laptop Centrino Windows XP Tablet PC connected to the Router (wireless).

With this configuration I succeed linking the 3 computers sharing files but no one get connected to the internet (however, if I link them directly to the Modem I get the Internet, including the laptop if I use its Ethernet door).

It seems to me that the problem is in the Wireless Router configuration. I tried to configure it like the Modem, with no success. I also tried without any configuration and no success either.

Could someone kindly tell me what Iím doing wrong?

The material:
Modem ADSL Draytek Vigor 2600 (it is also a Router with 4 Ethernet doors)
Router ASUS Wireless WL500G (it has also 4 Ethernet doors)
PC1-Windows XP - Ethernet 10/100
PC2- Windows XP - Ethernet 10/100

A:Can you set up wireless broadband internet modem to a router?

If your ISP's cable modem also provides wireless then it's probably also a router. Best way to confirm exactly what it is is to tell us the exact make/model of the device. Look for a metal tag on it (usually on the back where the cables connect or on the bottom) and give us the make/model

I trying to get internet access to a computer lab without needing to run a cable. The building already has an established wireless network. I want to use the internet access from the wireless card on one desktop to a switch and then to four other desktops via ethernet. So the path from a wired desktop is: wired desktop -> switch -> wired & wireless desktop -> access point -> modem. The entire network:

1 All WinXP
2 Uses DHCP
3 On a VPN

The desktop NICs can use static IPs, I don't care, but DHCP needs to stay active for the rest of buildling. I considered using Window's Internet Connection Sharing, but that will mess with DHCP on the whole network, right? I'm trying to do this cheap but without running a cable through the ceilings. Thanks!

A:Internet Connection Sharing FROM wireless

You can use ICS unless the wireless network uses the 192.168.0.x subnet. This puts the additional PCs on a different network, but with internet access.

You can also use a Network Bridge on the PC with wireless and ethernet. This puts the additional PCs on the same network as the wireless. If this doesn't work (because some routers have a bug) you have to manually assign addresses to the PCs connected to the switch.

Better is to get a device dedicated to this use--"wireless bridge" or "AP client"--instead of using a computer.

My current setup consists of my main desktop PC, a new desktop PC, and a new notebook. I'm connected to a wireless internet router in my house ont he main desktop, and have a smartcard wireless card for the notebook. I'm trying to get around buying another wireless card for the new desktop. Any ideas? Is there a way to split the connection between the two desktops?

any help is appreciated.

A:Sharing wireless internet connection?

You have to have some way of connecting the desktop to the router or to the other desktop and somehow set up internet connection sharing. You can either use an ethernet cable or a wireless card. You can't "split" a radio signal to a computer without a radio receiver.

I am trying to share my wireless connection to the Internet with other computers. The computer with the wireless internet connection also has a NIC, which the other computer communicates. I can't find any documentation that describes a solution for this. Everything I have found assumes a wired or dial-up connection to the Internet. Microsoft's Internet Connection Sharing (ICS) apparently didn't address this senerio. Help please.

Hi there,

I have a Belkin N1 wireless Modem/Router and canít get it to connect to the ADSL line in the house.

I am using Virgin.net in the UK and I can connect fine with the USB Modem that they provided.

When I connect the router I get the Wired, Modem Router lights on correctly and the ADSL light flashes orange (Indicating an issue with the ADSL line.

I have already replaced the Modem/Router once, so I am assuming that I didnít get two faulty ones.

Also I have tried to connect with two PCís directly wired to the Modem/Router.

The router model number is F5D8631-4, the firmware is up to date and I am using the following settings to connect;

Username: Is correct as it works with the modem virgin supplied
Password: Is correct as it works with the modem virgin supplied
VCI = 38
VPI = 0
MTU= 1430

I have two phone connections to the house, both with microfilters on them, the virgin modem works on both connections, but the modem/router on neither.

Here is a copy of my IPconfig/all, whilst connected with the Belkin Modem/Router;

Hi to all,

I am using a broadband internet of a provider named BSNL,through a simple modem. Recently I got a Beetel 450BX1 ADSL2 + Router and want to use the wireless capability of the laptop so that I don't have to be glued to my table. The OS I'm using is Windows 7 Ultimate (32 bit) on an HP Compaq 6515b.

I configured the modem by following the instructions in the following link--


I believe that's a straightforward method for configuring a router, and that accomplishing this is very simple.
I followed the steps, only changed the username and password to that given by BSNL.

Then, finally I unplugged the LAN cable and clicked on Connect to <connection name>, punched in the serial key. But it does not connect and says "Windows was unable to connect". Even after using Windows Network Troubleshooter the problem is not solved.

Now I think there can't be any problem with the router otherwise it would not be configured in the first place.

Please help me solve this problem.

I recently needed a new router from my internet provider. They came to my home and set up Westell 7500 modem router. My home computer brings up internet with no problems or delays. Unfortunately, my wireless laptop won't recognize any network. I plugged it in using the ethernet cord directly to laptop and modem and still no internet. I'm frustrated, I use my laptop all the time and without the internet it's worthless. Can someone suggest a solution to this problem? My laptop runs Windows XP, if that helps.
Thank you for your time!

your home computer how is that connected ?

lets see an ipconfig /all from the working home computer

and then from the laptop lets see a ipconfig /all and xirrus screen shot = make sure we know which ipconfig /all belongs to which PC
ipconfig /all
If you cannot access the internet with this PC, then you will need to paste the results into something like notepad and then copy onto a machine that can access the internet and post results here

We would like to see the results from ipconfig /all post back the results in a reply here

Hold the Windows key and press R, then type CMD then press Enter to open a command prompt box (A new dialogue box - black with white font, will appear on screen ):

In the command prompt window that opens, type the following command:

Note that there is a space before the /ALL, but there is NOT a space after the / in the following command.

ipconfig /all > network.txt & network.txt

It will export the results to notepad and then automatically open notepad.

Now all you need to do is copy and paste those results to a reply here
to do that:
From the notepad menu - choose Edit - Select all
all the text will be highlighted
From the notepad menu - choose Edit - Copy
Now go back to the forum - reply and then right click in the reply box and paste
