Hi All I am having real snags setting up the following: I have a PC using XP Pro, and a laptop using XP Home (both SP2) that i would like to set up both in a wireless network using the following cards and router/modem I have bought:
- Belkin 802.11g wireless Notebook Network Card
- Belkin 802.11g Desktop Network Card
- Belkin 802.11g ADSL Router/Modem - F57630-4A
I connected the router to the mains and the phone line and got the lights I was expecting from the manual. I installed the network cards successfully into both the PC and laptop successfully. From the PC I logged into 192.168.2.1 for the router interface, and set the parameters needed. However, after about 5 minutes, the router seems to lock and I cannot navigate the router anymore. I reinstalled the network card, and reset the router and was able to reconnect to the router but the same thing happened after about 5 min again. I then did the same from the laptop, and after about 5 minutes the same thing happened. When I tried 192.168.2.1 from the pc, i got a "Duplicate Administrator" error and was unable to connect to the router interface, even when the laptop was powered down. Also, when I log out from the laptop or the PC, and login again, the connection to the network is lost, and cannot be reestablished until I reinstall everything again. For info, at the moment, both the PC and the laptop are right next to the router. Also, with respect to the parameters, I can see where to enter the ISP username and password, but nowhere to enter the Server IP address or subnet masks.
Any help here please would be very much appreciated. I am going to try another router, but do wonder if this is the problem.
Many thanks in advance
