I was lucky enough to get a free laptop. It has windows 98. my pc is XP.
I was also given a dell truemobile 2300 router and a linksys etherfast 10/100 pc card for the laptop.
i bought a cat 6 cable. (after reading a little here, i don't know if that was the right thing)
anyway, I tried the following:
cat 6 into lan 1 and connected to computer
then another cable that comcast provided from modem to router (internet slot)
i turned on the laptop.
on my pc i went thru the network wizard set up. it recognized the linksys card.
the router light had the internet flashing, but not the wireless light. i wasn't sure what to do on the laptop. do i have to type in my ip address in the network connections area or something?
i tried to access the net on the pc, but it wouldn't work.
i basically had to undo my router connect and then undo what the wizard setup and re-set the local area network to get back online.
any suggestions? by the way I use an alternate web brower, not IE, i don't know if that makes a difference with the dell router or anything else. any help would really be great!
