    Default Lcoal Area Network + wireless

    Dear All

    I just got my new Bsnl broadband connection a few days back.

    My specs are as follows

    Ihave 2 computer computer1 computer2) connected by cross over rj45 cable. I am able to share files and folders.between the two computers. I have installed the adsl modem+router WA3002G4 on computer1. I am able to browse the net through computer1 but not with computer2.

    I am also having a laptop which i can connect to the net thru the adsl+modem+router thru rj45 ehternet cable

    I have 2 questions

    1:I want to connect computer 2 also to the internet thru ICS .

    2: i want to connect the laptop wirelessly ie (not thru the ethernet cable)


    Note : i can get connected to the internet with computer2 if i directly attach a patch cord 2 to one of the ports of the adsl modem+router along with patch cord 1 of computer1 but that is not what i want because my LAN connection+ sharing of files and folders is not available then.

    Please help me how to do the settings for the two

    Thanks in advance

    first of all you have to use pppoe mode in modem(in this modem dials the connection with the bsnl username/password saved in modem).
    Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able? Then he is not omnipotent.
    Is he able, but not willing? Then he is malevolent.
    Is he both able and willing? Then whence cometh evil? Is he neither able nor willing? Then why call him God?

    you can get a LAN even if both computers are connected to the router.. just need to make sure your settings are right..
    if you want ICS then computer1 will require 2 LAN cards and computer1 will have to be on whenever computer2 wants access. the best way is to connect computer1 and computer2 to the router and you should get a LAN and be able to share files and browse the internet!!!

    Man.. i got wifi router, WA1003A.. Wat i usually do is connect through my laptop..

    Firstly connect to Wireless Network then connect BSNL PPoE, then once i am connected through laptop, I turn ON other computer, it is connected to Same Router through LAN.
    It is connected to the network and i am able to browse net on it...!!!

    And I got one more Laptop, so if i want to connect to that to internet i just simply connect to the WireLess Network. And i am able to browse net...!!! Its real simple, if i can do it then anyone can do it

    Man it doesnot work when i try it vice versa... like when i connect to internet through desktop computer and then connect to wireless network through laptop,, it doesnot work like that... i am not able to browse net on Laptop it only works then on Desktop.,..!!!

    he still haven't replied me.i think he is setting up the network.
    this is what i suggested in my PM reply to him---
    though i am not an expert but these are my suggestions----
    a modem can connect to a computer through either USB or LAN interface.you can connect 2 computers to same modem by connecting 1 computer to USB & another to LAN.in this arrangement both computers can use file sharing & internet too.however if you want to connect both the computers simultaneously to net you must set your modem in pppoe mode.

    besides these two computers if you want to connect a laptop too you have to add a wireless router to this network.then you have to setup the adsl modem in bridge mode & wireless router in pppoe mode.in this network too you can use file sharing & can connect to net simultaneously from computers/laptop.

    basically ICS is not recommended for such networks where you want to connect to net simultaneously from,say,a laptop while 1 computer is already connected.also if you planning to add wireless router then again ICS is not recommended.pppoe mode is the preferred mode for such networks.you don't have to worry about anything because pppoe setup can handle additional computers/laptops too if you decide to add them in future.
