Internet connection problem

iqbloclevel
I installed a lan card, zoom usb adsl modem and a linksys wireless router into one computer which can easily access the internet. How can i establish a wireless internet connection for another computer that has a wireless adapter which can detect the linksys router connection but still has no internet access. Should I install another lancard to accomodate both the network and internet slots of the router. Is there any way to so that conflicts with other device be avoided should i install the second lan card.

    I think you will need to add your second computer to your wireless network containing your first computer. It should then be able to access the internet through the router to the internet. Otherwise, it is just an unknown computer trying to access the internet through the router without access.

    Right now you don't have a WLAN, just one computer, a router, and a modem. It would be no different then me showing up at your house with my laptop and wifi adapter attempting to use your router to connect to the internet.
