Ok......So I set up a router (not wireless) for my two computers in my room. I set it up using one computer and the internet works fine on it. But, my second computer that I have hooked up to the router wont work.

There is a signal on my router saying the connection is up for all my ethernet connections.....even the one that wont work.

I try to use the network wizard to add the second computer to my router, but it says it doesnt recognize any thing.

Anyone know what to do?

Does your router give out IP addresses via DHCP?

Try a couple of things if you didn't already.

On the computer that is not working, check the device manager to make sure the network card is installed and listed as working.

Try switching the port on the router that the computer that doesn't work is plugged into.

If it works in another port, then the port on the router is bad. If it still doesn't work try plugging it into the port for the working computer.

If it still doesn't work, then its probably the computer and not the router.

does the computer have integrated ethernet or did you install a network card?

If its intergrated, does the computer have more then one port. If so try the other port.

If you installed it, check to see it is seated correctly.

Does the non working computer have any kind of software firewall running, maybe you blocked access and didn't realize it.

Try these and let me know.

As per grinch... Are you automatically getting IP addresses?

Are you using MAC address Filters?

Are the software settings for your internet set correctly to either obtain an IP address automatically, or if you have specified IP addresses, then it uses those?

Open command prompt, type ipconfig. You should get an IP like 192.168.x.x.

If not, DHCP is not working correctly or the cable/network adapter is bad.

Do the same on the working computer, command prompt and ipconfig.

Find the IP address - 192.168.x.x

Go to the non working computer and type:

ping -t 192.168.x.x(ip of working comp)

See what it says.

Thanks for the help so far guys........

This computer used to work on a router. So I know its compatible and all. For the network card....

I go to the device manager but I dont know what the network card will show up as. If its not there what do I do? If it is what might it be listed as?

Also, I pinged everything like you said. My working computer gives me an IP just like you said it should. But my non working computer did not.

What IP did the non working PC give?

I have no idea what your NIC will show up as in Device Manager as I don't know the brand of your NIC.
