Default Trying to set up my connection

I just installed Windows XP Professional on my Dell computer, which is my second desktop in my workspace. I have a modem and a linksys router and I am wondering how to get the internet to work on my new desktop (dell) any help would be excellent!

plug in an Ethernet cable from your router and it should connect it automatically

put the main ethernet cord that runs from your modem to the back of the router into the main slot that says "internet". Then run 2 different cables to the computer. Run one cable from slot 1 in the back of the router to 1 computer. Same thing for the 2nd computer except put it in slot 2. If it still doesn't work, go to the linksys website and i think they have a program to show you how to set it up and confirm the connection.

you have to type the ip address of the router to access the setup screen usually.

When installing XP for the first time and then after installing all your motherboard drivers there should allready be a connection set up in the control panel. Go to network properties under control panel and see if its there, if so u might have to enable it. If its not there then go file > settup new connection and then just go through the steps
