How to eliminate a router and return to direct ethernet connection?
Posted on 2004-08-17
My Belkin 4-port wireless router allowed my desktop and notebook computers to share my cable internet connection. I'd set up 128-bit encryption. My notebook is defunct and I'd like to eliminate the router from my internet connection until I get a new second computer. When I removed my cable connection from the router and plugged it straight into the desktop again I couldn't connect to my ISP. Reconnecting the desktop to the router reestablished internet connectivity.
1) Do I need to change some Internet or network settings in Windows (Windows 98 SE) to allow me to return to the single computer, non-router cable connection I originally used?
2) Are there changes I need to make at the Belkin web-based advanced user interface?
