Hey all :tazz:

I have got a Linksys ADSL Router, and I want to be online at the same time with my Laptop and my other Computer. We have turned the router on and setted it up on my computer and then I went downstairs to the Latop and it said new connection found (Linksys), and it said Connection:Excellent, then I open internet explorer to see if internet works on Laptop and it doesn't work. On my Computer I need to open AOL 9.0 browser and sign on, on that. If I try and install AOL Broadband it goes through the process then it gets to the point you need to plug in the BT Voyager Modem in the laptop? I HAVE ONLY GOT ONE MODEM AND THE LAPTOP IS SUPPOSE TO BE WIRELESS. Well, Could you PLEASE help me, I would appreciate it ALOT.


Oh and please, no computer language, plain English please.

Hello Dodevu,

We have turned the router on and setted it up on my computer

What steps have you taken to set up your router?

Goto Start, Run, type CMD, press 'OK' and then type: IPCONFIG /ALL - please post the results here by right-clicking on the Command Prompt window, selecting 'Select All', pressing Ctrl+C, and then posting on this forum.

Test your Network
1. Goto Start, Run, type: NETSH DIAG GUI - press 'OK'. A Command Prompt window will open temporarily; don't touch it, it will disappear in a moment.
2. A Microsoft Help and Support window will then open; select the option 'Scan your system'.
3. Wait for the scan to finish and then scroll down to the heading 'Modems and Network Adapters'. Look at 'Network Adapters' (don't expand it yet). Beside your connection information, you should see a green 'PASSED'; if you do not (if you see a red 'FAILED') then expand 'Network Adapters', scroll down the list until you see the heading with the 'FAILED', expand that option and copy and paste the results here.
In the NETSH DIAG GUI, you should be looking for any red 'FAILED', however the key one is Network Adapters for you. If you see any other red FAILED, expand the component and copy the results.
