Just moved home and I'm trying to connect my computer to my parent's setup. They have a desktop with win '98 and a laptop with win xp pro connected to a 8 port network lan hub which is in turn connected to a modem which is connected to a broadband modem. I have a laptop with windows xp and a 3COM Etherlink III WAN PC removable ethernet card.
Both their computers work fine but I have tried connecting my pc to one of the available ports on the lan bub but can not get a connection. "Limited or no connectivity" is the status reading I get. I've tried to use one of their ports (one that works) but still no connection. I've searched the forums but can't find any help to this particular question. I have a feeling its a basic fix but I can't seem to solve the problem.
Any help is appreciated.
