DSL Shared Internet

Post  Admin on 6/9/2008, 05:25

I have about lost my mind over this. I'm trying to share our DSL with another computer but I keep getting an error message about having the same IP address on both. I can't figure it out..

Well, I'm no good with computers but look back in that "home network" thread. I remember Nes explaining something to me about the 2 different IPs.

What is the model of your dsl modem? Is it a wireless capable modem?

If your dsl service from your provider allows more than one computer to access the internet, then we should be able to get it right.

Turn both computers off.
Turn the computer on that you use the most.
I assume you are on a microsoft operating system so here we go.
click on start then go to run then type in cmd. You should be at the command shell. Type ipconfig. you should get a line that says ip address. Write down that number.
Go to the second computer and repeat all of the steps.
Let me know what that address is. I'll get back as soon as I can.

Peace

Modem Name SpeedStream
Model 4100
Not capable of wireless..
My modem says the IP is 209.172.13.194


I got the number 192.168.1.64 on the host computer the way you said.


The guest PC said Ipv4 209.172.14.187

Should you be able to have 2 computers access the internet at the same time? Also describe your network connection. Do you have a hub?

I'll post another question. When you "run->cmd->ipconfig" what do both computers state as being the "gateway address"?

It's a pretty fast connection so sharing it shouldn't be a problem.
Yup, I'm using a hub and the host gateway# is 192.168.0.1
the guest gateway# is 209.172.12.6

I'm not sure on this, but I think you might need to get a router, as oppose to a hub. A router will allow for your pc's to get individual ip addresses.

Aside from that, try to change your gateway on the 'guest' pc to match your 'host' pc, and see what happens. Take snap shots of everything you change before you change it, so that you can always go back to it, if you make it worse than what it currently is.

The hub says that I can share a Internet connection, unless it means with a router.
Just change the gateway number to match???? Leave the IP?

I'm thinking the guest gateway is the issue. If the guest pc is the one that will not access the internet, make sure the guest pc is set to automatically obtain ip address.
Most of these dsl modems will route. Usually stock settings on these modems are in the class c 192.168.0.1 range. Hope this helps.

Let us know.

There you go, try what biglumber said, go into the guest pc's TCP/IP properties, and select "Dynamic" and it should follow the sequence on its own... I think. I'm going to show this post to my brother and see if he has any input. Hopefully he responds to me soon.

Ok, here is what my brother responded with:

"I've had this problem recently. What I did was go into the router via 192.168.1.1(on my router), in linksys, there's a menu under administration i think and I went to local network and there's a button that says 'DHCP hosts table' or something like that. I deleted the computer that caused the conflict and let the network refresh the ip address. note: this is if the network is set to autoconfig DHCP. it could be set to static IP adressing. it all comes down to the settings that are set for that particular network. trial and error."

I don't know why it's gotta be so damn difficult....

Play some classical music while you're doing it, that always helps me to stay calm.

It's not even slowing my connection while my girlfriend is using the lap top..SWEET

I guess my 1st thought was actually correct, woohoo, lol I'm such a geek. So your router is wireless? and does it also have 4 ports for wired connections? And if it is wireless, did you secure it with a password? So that people won't use your signal?
