Having problems with your Dell Dimension 2400 PC Desktop ?

Can't get router to connect to Dell Dimension 2400 desktop

\015 I have a Dell Dimension 2400 desktop running Windows XP. I use a cable modem to connect to the internet. I recently purchased a HP Pavilion laptop and a Linksys N Wireless Router so that I can be on the internet on both computers and run a network. I got the wireless to work to the laptop but can't get the internet to work properly with my desktop. All the wiring is done as instructed by the router directions. I'm not a technical person but can follow directions well. I tried to problem-solve on my own. I know I have a Broadcom 440x 10/100 on my Dell but other than that, I have no clue what the problem could be.\015

Answers :

Is the router connected to a "Main modem" (ex) a motorolla that recieves a coax cable and then outputs to wired computer outlets that you can hook a router up to also? If so, hook your router to a "wired Computer" e-thernet (like a wide phone plug) outlet,and the router up to seperate one.Try that.That's how mine is hooked up and it works great
Try turning OFF DHCP from services. This may fix your problem.\015\012Look for "DHCP Client", double click on it (or right click and choose properties), STOP the service, then set it's startup type to 'manual'. That'll kill it. See DHCP is what "Gives out/assigns addresses" and on the ONLY PC, it is the First one... 192.168.0.1... Both PC's will be assigning themselves as that, and that will cause a conflict. As the Router now does the DHCP work. Of course ensure you DO have DHCP set on router.
