To connect one computer:
- Ensure you have an Ethernet Network Interface Card (NIC) installed and correctly configured in your computer.
- Plug one end of a CAT 5 cable into the ethernet port on the back of your computer (the port which looks like a phone jack, but slightly larger), and the other end of the cable into the LAN interface on the broadband connection device (DSL modem, etc).
- Go to the START menu and select Settings, then click on Control Panel.
- Double click on the Network Icon. It will take you to Network Configuration box.
Then double click on the Protocol tab.
- Highlight the "TCP/IP Protocol" line and click Properties.
Enter the setting information supplied to you in your install package. (the numbers below are examples)
- Click on the "DNS" tab and enter the setting information supplied
to you in the install package (Not these numbers). Then click the OK button at the bottom.
- Click the OK button again.
- That should be it. The other tabs should be left as the defaults. The computer will reboot (or not) and you will be ready to go.
To connect multiple computers:
- You will need to connect an Ethernet hub or switch into the broadband connection device. Follow the instructions included with your hub or switch for connecting to a router. In some instances, a cross-over Ethernet cable may be required. However, some devices have built-in cross-over ports than can be used in lieu of cross-over cables.
- Follow the steps for connecting one computer above, skipping step 2. Plug one end of your computer into an available port on the hub or switch.
- Continue the instructions above, beginning at step 3.
