Having problems with your PC Laptops ?

I need to set up my IP provided WiFi router-modem (Westell 327M) for use with my two laptops, such that the router-modem provides me internet access via ethernet cables (not interested in the WiFi aspect of the router modem). The IP (Verizon) has given me the runaround for over three years, so I've had to use their Westell 6100 ethernet modem (and swap out the ethernet cable, only allowing me to surf w/one laptop at a time). One is an HP Pavilion/Vista Ho Prem SP1 and the other's an Acer XPH


Answers :

First check with the ISP if any DNS server settings or proxy settins are required(but i think you can alternatively connect your laptops these may have ben already set on the laptops but just in case)
\015\012
\015\012now if your ISP accepts you to have more than one connection from the same link then you can connect the connect the cable from the modem to the INTERNET/WAN areas and you can connect the ethernet cables in the ports marked 1,2,3,4
\015\012
\015\012here check that if you are only etting the link on the computer connected to port1 and no connection on the others then make a small adjustment disconnect the cable from WAN/Internet port and connect it to the Port1 and the computers to 2,3,4
\015\012
\015\012now that you are saying that u r not interested in the wifi so it is advisable that you go to the home page of the router and from there to the wireless page and disable the wireless broadcast of the router for safety purposes
\015\012
\015\012this can be changed any number of times back and forth
