Im a networking idiot
Posted on 2004-10-21
Im having problems setting up a small home wirless network and desperately need help. I have a broadband subscription with AOL, on subscription i recieved a 'BT Voyger 105' usb modem. Also AOL requires its dialer software to connect to the internet. On installation my computer recognizes the usb modem as local area network connection.
I have also purchased a 'Wirless-G Router', my computer is attached directly to the router via networking cable and there are other computers connected via wirless links. I have used the xp network setup and created a newtork. I can see other computers on the network but the internet connection isn't shared.
In the 'Network Connections' tab it shows two LAN connections a Network bridge and a Internet connection.
The router has a built in modem so i shouldnt need the usb modem but i cant get router to connect. I really dont know what im doing, should i remove the usb modem and use the router, if so how do i get it connect. If not how do i share the internet connection?
