ok, ive had this problem some time now, and last time i thought it was solved due to the help of some ppl here...... it really wasnt, but our internet connection got cut off before i found that out
now we have internet again, and here's the problem:
there's 3 of us in this house, 2 desktops, 1 laptop
1 ethernet modem
enough patch/crossover cables
yet no internet
for some reason, the modem WILL dial up, and if connected to a comp directly, that comp has internet
now the weird part......... if i connect to the internet with a comp, then switch my modem 2 the router, and my comp to the router, I have internet, but the rest doesnt........ if i repeat this trick for everyone, we all have internet........ when we reboot, we dont anymore........
WHAT ARE WE DOING WRONG????
everything is connected correctly, router and ethernetmodem have the right dialup settings, firewall in router is turned of...............
any help is really appreciated
(and no, not rebooting isnt an option mr wiseguy)
EDIT: the network via the router works fine, no problem with that @ all, its just the network doesnt work with the internet
