      This might work for you:
      Start > settings > control panel > system > hardware > device manager, scroll down to “network adapters”, you might see some adapters marked with a yellow tag or red cross, if yellow then right click and select “update drivers” select “install from list” select “Do not search.I will choose driver to install” and select your driver (it should be listed) if not you will need your driver disk. If you have a red cross on your “network adapter” then right click and select “enable”, once done you might be asked to re-boot. Hope this helps you.

      Are your DNS settings the same as a computer that works on your friend’s LAN?

      using a router then check firewall access list on the router.
      At home I got an access list on my router.
      If I do not approve connection to the internet via the access list the wkst will not be able to connect to the internet.
      The wkst will be able to access my internal LAN resources

      can I hack into it now???
      LOL

      Try looking for the ‘proxy’ settings and unchecking everything.

      Try again.

      Does any other computer there get to the Internet? If so, try looking at the IP setup on those systems. Are they in the same range?

      Also try to ping the 192.168.0.1 address. Does it show a connection or time out?

      Did you try another LAN cable?

      Did you try resetting the router (linksys)

      did you try another port on the switch/hub?

      Just a few things to try. Please post back.

          If there is no router, that cable/dsl modem is only handing out 1 IP address, and it is going to another computer. If you do not get a valid IP address to connect with, it will not work.

          If it is on your friends computer, you will likely need to use that IP as the Gateway.
          You say you are on the LAN, are you in the same workgroup?
          Worst case scenario use the Internet sharing wizard (that is likely how he setup the others). Speaking of which, can your friend not remember how he set up the other computers or did you guys just create the LAN?

          I just got back from a setup at someones apt. It sounded very similar. There was a cable modem, and he had plugged in his Mac notebook, He was assigned a DHCP address.
          A while later he plugged in his Win notebook, and could not get an IP. I tried, same thing, even with my notebook. no IP (autoconfig only). Rebooting the cable/dsl modem EACH TIME the computers were switched solved the problem.

          he cable modem was allowed to hand out 1 IP address. It kept it in memory for which system had it.

          Ok. I’ll explain

          This is actually more leeway than cable internet providers allow.

          The cable modem registers the MAC addess from the newtwork card of the first computer to access the internet. After that that is the only computert allowed on the connection.

          If you want to connect more than one computer they will reprogram the modem to allow the extra conncetions. AND CHARGE YOU FOR THE EXTRA IP ADDRESSES. The same way they want to charge for every tv connected to the cable in your house.

          They don not want you to share the connection without paying extra for. Usually their tech support will not help you set up a router on the connection. The best I could get from one tech support staffer was that it WAS possible but he was NOT ALLOWED to tell me how. Once I heard that I relaized what was going on.

          I configured the router to spoof the MAC address of the computer that actaully worked on the cable meodem. Problem solved. That is the main reason that feature is provided in routers.

      It sounds like you are trying to use your friends DSL modem without a router.

      Does his modem require a PPPoE Dial-up networking connection to work. If so you would need the same configuration on your machine. PPPoE is an extra protocol beyond the basic TCP/IP for transporting over a “dial-up” connection. It also provides for the requirement of a username and password before you can use the connection. As you are getting an IP from the modem I suspect you need to configure a PPPoE connection.

      Did you have dsl at another location before this? If yes was there any required software installed for that service. You may have to uninstall that software before you can continue.

      The best way to share a high speed connection is with a router.

      In my opionion it is the ONLY way. I recommend using a router even you ONLY HAVE ONE COMPUTER connected to the modem.

      Some High-Speed modems/ ISP providers will accomodate a hub or switch and provide ip addresses to all the machines connected but that is the exception rather than the rule.
