Ever since I connected my brothers pc to my network it went down. I have my pc with a wireless card that supplies the internet, goes to a workgroup switch and branches to each computer from there.<br><br>
When set to get IP and such automaticly it says limited or no connectivity and if I set it manualy to what it could be it says its fine but it does nothing. Both ways no packets are either received or sent out. I have reset all my TCP/IP settings but still nothing. Virus maybe? Idk, been awhile since I've taken Cisco<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/frown.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Frown">

I can get the internet working on my comp since its connected directly to mine and then to the switch, but it has no reset switch. It does have a uplink port for rj-45. Could I connect my computer to this to configure it?

That uplink port is used for the internet side. If there were any sort of configuration port, it's usually in the back of the switch named Console. Even then, you would need a rollover cable with a DB-9 connector plugged into your serial port. I'm having trouble figuring out your exact topology. Is your computer used as a Proxy? How is the wireless card connecting to the switch? Could you explain it in a little more detail??

Ufda, didn't see that anyone replied again, sry SoBe8503, I have my computer ,which has the wireless network card in a pci slot, from my computer it goes from my 10/100 ethernet card (integrated in the mobo) which goes to a 5-port switch which goes to the other computer (more later hopefully).

Ok, i;ve heard that this works in theory, but if your doing anything on your computer, the internet on the other computers will come to a standstill... I recommend you just drop $40 and get a wireless router: <a href="http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16833122016" target="_blank">linky</a><br><br>
If you connect to your router using somthing like 192.168.0.1, the netgear routers ship with that IP inthere, so if you get that puppy, you'll have to turn DMS off and let your modem do that...<br><br>
WAIT, if you have just a one port modem, you can just plug and play with this router. (my modem has a switch and wireless built in so i forgot about people who just have the standard)<br><br>
Good Luck<br>

Thanks for the linkey Higgins, but I'm cheap and don't wanna buy a router if I don't need to.<br><br>
It HAS worked, it just went down somehow, and now I'm trying to get it working again , since before I just connected everything and it worked with out any trouble.
