2nd computer in adsl

September 24, 2009 at 19:00:19
Specs: Windows XP, 3.00GHz / 1GB
This is my first post. I'm confused where to post it.

I'm using two computers, I have connected my first
computer to Internet using ADSL connection.
Now I want to use the same ADSL connection for my second computer.

So I connected the phone line to ADSL modem, Connected the modem to my router. And connected both of the computers to router.

Now I don't know how to configure the connection settings.

My first computer is well connected, but my second computer is having problem.

Could you post the result for an "ipconfig /all"?
Type in the command in a command prompt, without quotes.
Best is to do this on both computers.
You mentioned, that the first computer is connected well. Are you able to browse the internet on that first computer?

Thats the problem.
The second computer has the same ip address as the router.
Check whether the second computer is configured to automatically get the ip address from the router (DHCP).
It should !!!

I checked the option - Obtain IP Address automatically (In the properties of the network connection)
Now it says that the connection is limited.

I again checked "ipconf /all". The result is like this:

C:\DOCUME~1\SOUL>ipconfig /all

Have you rebooted the computer?
If it doesn't work after reboot, try another network cable.

Changed the cable also, but the same problem.

Then I thought of changing router. Now it is working.

The defect was in router.

Thanks.
