I would really apreciate if you guys could help me.
--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? Is there a crucial step that I missed?
Can elaborate if there is any confusion.
Thanks in advance!
