How do I connect multiple computers to my ADSL connection? 

by on January 18, 2013

Q: I have a problem connecting multiple computers to the one internet connection. Firstly, I connected a laptop up to the the ADSL wall socket and internet was still connected from the previous ISP. This will continue to run for about a week more until the contract runs out, at which time we select a new one.

Problem that i have is that i cannot connect more than that one device through this same ADSL socket. I can plug the ethernet cable into my brand new computer or my netbook and cannot connect to the internet.

I then purchased a new router, thinking that it would solve my problems. But the new router won’t allow access even on the computer that works directly with the wall outlet ADSL cable.

Hopefully this is an easy fix because i really do feel like a moron atm… 🙁

How come my Internet only stays connected for a few minutes after the power went out? 

by on October 16, 2012

Q: Hi guys. Im currently running windows xp with IE all updated and using AVG also fully updated.

About two hours ago i needed to turn my mains power off at the circuit board so I could check a faulty power socket. Since powering everything back up i am finding that my internet will only work for about 5-10mins and then will stop connecting. If i go into network connections and repair my connection then it will start going again.

I have run a virus scan and found nothing, have tried a system restore and also reset / restarted my modem but nothing so far seems to work.

Adding to my frustration, i have a tablet which is connecting to the net with no problems so it must be some issue with my desktop.

The desktop is connected by Ethernet and the tablet is a wireless

Any suggestions would be appreciated as always
