Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

Router is connected to internet but other computers which show connection to the router cannot connect to the internet


Answers :

Just because it is physically connected to the internet does not mean that it has a connection. The first thing you need to check is that it has an IP address. There should be a status page on the router that you can check.

Your ISP may require a specific machine name and password, or it may require the MAC address of your device, in order to get an IP address assigned to it. Call your ISP tech support for help with this.

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.
