Im having a serious problem over here. I have been at this for 3 days to no avail. I'll try to cover this as thouroughly as possible.
I just moved in with my parents again and, I brought my PC. I built it myself so there is no manufacturer. I have been trying to connect my mother's office pc and my gaming pc to the internet. I was using a linksys switch but for some reason I cant get internet on both pcs at the same time. It is always one or the other, No matter how many configurations Ive tried for the plugs, no matter how many times I've reset everything.
My pc is vista (don't say anythingm I know. I haven't had the money to upgrade). Mom's is Windows 7 Professional 64bit. On my moms network map, it sees my pc, the switch, the modem, and a weird unknown. Ive tried so many things I cant even remember them all to list them, but they are all beginner level solutions. I even bought a new router, a netgear 5 port 1/100m.
If I plug my pc in and reset the modemm I get internet but mom wont. Mom only gets internet when shes plugged in alone then reset.
It's such a strange problem, and I'm at my wits end, Any suggestions?
The current details on my profile and attached are of my mom's pc. Heather.
Oh and I forgot to mention I have cable internet via Charter.
