Setting up a wireless network for someone
I went over there today and tried to set it up, with no luck.
She has ATT DSL, and a modem that she said was like 3 years old. Her computer is ancient too, but it is running XP. She but a lnksys wireless G router, and wanted to set it up so her daughter could use it when she came home from college.
This is what I tried, I ran the ethernet cable from the modem, to the router, to the computer. Went through the entire set up process on the paper, and it doesnt work. No internet is coming in.
So than I tried running the DSL to the computer, and than out through another ethernet port to the back of her router from the computer. And than set the DSL connection to be shared, and apparently that didnt work.
But I think it may be because she didnt set up the network on the laptop that the person testing it brought over later.
I really dont know what to do now tho. Any ideas?
She is using DSL through like PPPoe or something. Which is older I think, but I am not sure.
