2 PCs + 1 ADSL Modem + 1 Switch = IP Error and no Internet :(
Posted on 2006-04-10
I have 2 PC with WinXPPro and WinXP.
Both have their NICs.
I used to share the ADSL Modem (Aztech 305EU) by plugin/unplugin the PC I was about to use.
That bored me so I got a Trendnet TE-100-S88 and connected both computers with a patch 5E cable.
I can see them in the switch (lights on) but I no signs of the ADSL modem.
It have the provided yellow cable from the modem to the switch.
The Ethernet light is off always, so it seems something is wrong.
ALSO, when I login in into both machines, they say "IP Error".
Got to tell you that both computers had the same TCP/IP config information (gateway, IP, DNS x2) because they shared connection one at time with the same modem and cable.
There's got to be a way to configure them but have no idea.
