Witless router problems
Hi, guys I'm having a problem with my netgear wireless router. It's connected to a cable modem.
The wireless router is labeled with four LAN ports on the back and one port labeled as Internet. I have an Ethernet cable running from my cable modem to the Internet port on wireless router.
I have two laptops, iPhone and desktop running on the wireless router, desktop is hard-lined into LAN port 1. Everything else is wireless, One of my laptops has been running really slow lately.
I disconnected the ethernet cable
from the Internet port on my router and plugged it into the slow laptop to do a speed test.
So speed test was done when I plugged the Ethernet cable back into the Internet port on my wireless router my other laptop won't connect to the Internet, if I put the ethernet cable into LAN port 3 my laptop has internet connection but my iPhone does not if I plug the Ethernet cable into LAN port 2 my iPhone had Internet connection but my laptop does not.
Any ideas how to fix this?
