Hi dartnut,

First of all, you have 11 open questions, do something about it please.

Second:

You never told how far you are with setting up this network
The telephone line has to be connected to the ADSL router (assuming it has a modem build-in)
Then, connect the computers to the router.
With the default settings of the router, you probably have to setup all computers to automatically recieve an IP-address (also the default setting of windows)

If this is all setup the right way, happy surfing.

Greetings,

LucF

Thank you. I checked the open questions and almost all of them are not solved......I am doing something on them anyway.
I think I know who to connect ADSL with telephone line and PCs to the router. But what is "automatically recieve an IP-address (also the default setting of windows)" ? How to set them?

Just check the networksettings of your computer.
This is for win2k but it should be about the same for winXP

Right-click "Network neighbourhood" => "Properties" => right-click the network connections => "Properties"
set both options to "automatically obtain..."

Then, check your router manual to find out how to get it connected to the internet, you'll have to put in your username and password somewhere, then you should be fine.

Thank you.
I found my problem is more difficult than what I thought!
1. I cannot find automatically obtain in my WindowsXP
2. I cannot link just one PC with WindosXP to the Internet.
( I am using a modem + boadband to link to the Internet right now.)

If I understand you the right way, win2000 is now working like it should.

Follow this for winXP
a) Click Start, click Control Panel, click Network and Internet Connections, and then click Network Connections.
b) Locate the icon that represents this computer's connection to the home network.
c) Right-click the icon, and then click properties.
d) Set it to automatically obtain an IP-address

If you then still don't have an internet connection...
Start => Run => type "IPCONFIG /RELEASE" (without the quotes and press enter)
Start => Run => type "IPCONFIG /RENEW" (again without the quotes and press enter)
