I can't get my 2nd computer to go on line. Please help.
Thanks in advance for helping me out with this problem:
I have a basic 2 PC wired home network.
My ISP is Time Warner
The 1st PC that can get on line has Vista as the OS
The other pc (Mine) has XP Pro and I can't get it on line.
I have a high speed 10/100 (High speed wow how technology has changed) 16 port net gear switch ( I don't know the model #, I'm at work)
I have everything wired correctly. I have one ethernet cable going directly from the cable modem into the #1 slot. I have the 1 PC that can get on line connected to the #2 port.
I have my PC connected to the #3 port & I've tried 2 others & I keep getting the same message. ( You have limited network capability, with the little yellow lock image over the network connections on the bottom toolbar)
I don't think it's a hardware issue, because all of the lights on the modem & switch are functioning properly for both PC's.
I just moved into this place this weekend & my PC was fully operational before the move. I also had Time Warner as my ISP as well.
Again thanks for any help with this issue.
