How do I get my router working with Earthlink and my two computers?

by on November 12, 2012

Q: I now have 2 computers in my home. My new internet service is thru Earthlink I had to disconnect the router to get the internet through them. When I set up the other system in another part of the house can I connect the router to that one for the internet to work?

    Can you explain your setup a little more?

    You have two computers, and some form of serivce from Earthlink. This is dialup, DSL, or cable? What hardware did Earthlink provide you with? (Possible a DSL/Cable modem?)

    Is your problem that you’re only able to connect one computer at a time, or something else?

    It also sounds like you have a router from your prior internet service. What is the make and model of this router? Did you buy it yourself, or was it given to you from your prior Internet Service?
