Hope someone can help me solve what should be a simple
problem...haven't seen anybody with this same problem in this
newsgroup, hope I'm just missing something simple.
about home networking, bought a LinkSys 5 port 10/100 switch. Plugged
hooked up originally) into the switch, plugged the cable modem into
the uplink port, it works as before, no problem.
With the 2nd PC plugged into the switch, I can the lights lighting up
indicating it's at least aware of the 2nd PC. I go to configure the
2nd PC with same settings as my first PC, except changing the computer
differs from the first one by just one letter; for which I get to pay
Cannot get any connection working on the 2nd PC. Any ideas how to
troubleshoot? Are there any control panels settings beyond
Network->TCP/IP properties that need to be set? Is there anything that
needs to be done with the switch?
Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
