Hi All. Boy do I need help. I just set up a Linksys router with our cable modem and did everything that was in the instructions, there are 3 computers attached to it and the internet is not working on any of them. At first only one was not working properly but now none of the computers have internet capability. I cannot figure out what is wrong and when you check the status 2 of the computers are sending packets at a high rate but receiving none. The other (the host) is not sending or receiving more than about 10 at a time. I appreciate all your help.

Heres a good read on how to set up the network.


This sounds like you dont have the workgroup name the same on all the computers.

You also might read this on networking win 95-98-ME.
