well, now that I've gotten a good connection. I want to take advantage of having 2 puters available.
quite handy when one is updating or working etc.
trying to finally setup my router [ been collecting dust ]
going for the wired connect 1st, [ laptop 1 , is a builtin wireless/g...just gonna use it wired for now tho
then to add on a wireless for 2nd laptop, it has a wireless b card
then add a wireless adapter for my printer [ ok yeah right ]
I went thru the steps
make sure I got a good connect 1st , check
then plug into WAN then use 4 on the router to the laptop , check
hold the reset button on router for 30 seconds , check
get the physical addy from ipconfig, check
type physical addy into mac addr clone , check
clik apply, check
shut down pc , check
unplug router/modem...wait 30 seconds , check-check
power up modem , check
power up router, check
start computer , check
try surfing...nothing , can't find server . wtf ?
well , if I can get the bloody thing to recognize 1 puter , that'll b better than nothing
did I miss a step ?
I went to the linksys site and looked up what I thought was related , even tried the " easy set-up " [ my eye easy...it didn't recognize my router
