so, we just got our internet hooked up with westman communications. no router, just a moden, so we can only connect 1 computer at once. he originally connected it to our desktop, but i wanted to use it on my laptop for a while, and it wouldint connect. it said limited or no connectivity. i played with the settings, no luck, (desktop winxp, laptop win7) so i try on my other winxp laptop. same damn thing. i put back in desktop, no problem. *** is going on here?!? as far as i know he didint install any software or change any settings and if so he did very quickly. could they program it to only allow itself to be connected to one computer? whats up??!!??! is there any way i can use it on my other computers?
