Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

I have an ethernet hub to which my dsl modem is connected. I also have two computers on this hub so I can access the internet on both PCs. I am trying to also connect a belkin wireless access point to the hub so I can access the internet from my PSP/Wii/Xbox. Every time one of these devices tries to get the IP address, it fails. What am i doing wrong?


Answers :

You should try to upgrade to a router. The main differences between a router and a hub is a router has a microcontroller and a hub does not. The router can operate at something called a full duplex which means it can send and receive data at the same time, it will also come with an additional IP address, possibly your internet service provider will only allow a limited number of IP addresses per one line. First unplug another connection and then try your X-box connection.

Router problem. Time Warner had a internet problem last Sunday, April 26 here in the Northeast. They fixed it, but our internet still didn't function properly as it did before the TWC problem. Very slow connections and timing out most of the time. Talked to TWC tech person, and found out that internet was fine to my main computer, but when the router was hooked up the problem came back. Netgear WGR614 v4. Only thing TWC said was to try and change channel. We tried but problem still exists.
