Hello. I bought a new computer 7 days ago so we could have internet on 2 computers so to lessen the queue time waiting to go on. I've connected the network cable & router & modem properly & used the router set-up disk on the new computer only. I cannot go any further than this coz both computers tell me that "A network cable is un-plugged". It is definitely plugged into both. I bought another cable but they still tell me its un-plugged. Internet still works fine on the old computer (1 year old), but when its hooked up to the new computer the connection is lost every minute.
I cannot set up the internet or network connection on the new computer at all coz, you've guessed it........."a network cable is un-plugged"
Using 2X AMD Athlon (Maxdata) computers, both using Windows XP & service pack 2. USB ADSL BT Broadband modem X1, 2X micro filters & 1X router.
The new computer is just left idle, please help.
