|Using a Belkin N wireless router I can establish a working LAN between 2 desktop PC's both connected to the router via ethernet and a laptop connected via wireless. All PC's can access shared folders and access the internet.|
Because of poor wireless reception at end of house I wish sometimes to connect the laptop using ethernet and 'HomePlugs'. But to set things up I am connecting the laptop to the router with a long ethernet cable. When I do this I have been able to establish a working LAN connection but can not manage to get an internet connection.
I see a WAN Internet connection listed on the two desktops and on the laptop when connected by wireless but NOT on the laptop when connected via ethernet. I guess this is the problem but how do I set up a WAN for this ethernet connection?
