Problem with my home pc getting steady internet - Page 2

post #11 of 20
Thread Starter 
I might have to give the sharing a shot since I usually do have both of them on anyway, didn't know I could do that. The router is up to date already so I will have to play with this option or getting a long ethernet cable since I don't want to try buying new hardware yet. Thanks for all the advice!

I had a situation simlar to this. I have comcast and all of a sudden was getting really spotty service. I was wired into my wireless router...I had a tech come out and it turns out that when they installed it, they had it set up with a 6-way splitter instead of the internet being a dedicated line. They made the internet a dedicated line and then my tv services set on the splitter (Not that I use it since I have DirecTv) Check to see if your line into your house is split at all. Apparently this was weakening my signal so much that it would cause it to lose connection.

Had that happen to me as well, but WIndows would display a yellow triangle over the wifi icon in the system tray, and all computers would drop connection.

Ok I guess I should have asked yesterday but how do I get my laptop to share the internet through the ethernet connection to my pc? I followed the steps I found online but it's still not working. My laptop is windows 7 as well.

Cant tell you step by step because my main rig is not accessible to me as I'm on vacation, and my lappy is running OSX.

But its somewhere along the lines of :

Control Panel> Network and sharing center> network adaptors > Properties on the connection > sharing tab> tick the box that says Allow other computers to connect via this computers internet connection.

Some other member may be able to give a more detailed set of steps. But hopefully that will guide you in the right direction (then connect an ethernet cord from the laptop to desktop of course).

Yeah that's the steps I followed, guess I am just cursed frown.gif I plugged my pc direct into the router and it worked fine so I know at least the connection should work.

Try this:

http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows-vista/Using-ICS-Internet-Connection-Sharing

more specifically the IP settings...also make sure the green and orange lights on the ethernet jack are lighting, additionally if the hardware is very dated, you would need to use a crossover cable, but this is unlikely.
