Hello Folks,

I would really apreciate if you guys could help me. :blink:

--Here is my setup: DSL router 2wire 1000sw (wireless model), 1 USRobotics 7905 router(5 connections), 2nd router (5 connections),and 3windows based computers, and 1 mac.---

My problem is that I have 4 computers at home and I'm only able to 2 of them through the router at the same time.

The 2wire is 50 feet from the farthest computer, there are two computers per room.

The way I have it set up is; I run a 25 foot cable from the 2wire into the first room to the USrobotics router then connect to the 2 computers. Then have one 25' cable out of the usrobotics to the next room into the other router, that connects to the other two computers.

Its a pretty simple set up, but it only works for two computers at a time!

I've tried connecting the third computer via direct cable to the computer (no second router). Only to have that computer tell me that the network cable was disconnected. ( I tried this with both routers at separate times... same deal) I can connect other computers via wireless but that is not an option with these computers.

What am I doing wrong? :whistling: Is there a crucial step that I missed? :help:
Can elaborate if there is any confusion.

Thanks in advance! :rofl:

TM :)
