please ask the question in English and not Urdu - so many

by Deadly Ernest In reply to getway problem

foreign words that aren't English, I can't understand the question.

Also, it would help a little to know what operating systems are running on what units.

As well as the OS's in use here

by OH Smeg Moderator In reply to getway problem

Knowing your type of Network Topology and the way that it is connected to the Internet would help no end here.

It's possible that if you are using a Windows Computer as a Gateway device to some sort of Modem adding the NoteBook exceeds the maximum Concurrent Connection Number which causes the issues you are having but until we know what type of network and how it is configured it's not possible to say much more than that.

OH Except XP Home allows 5 Concurrent connections and XP Pro allows 10 Concurrent Connections where as most forms of Linux the maximum number of Concurrent Connections can be configured as required.

You need to enable the IP Addressing

by OH Smeg Moderator In reply to sorry

You can do away with the DHCP Addressing as with just a straight connection to a Modem it's not necessary.

Ideally under these conditions you should also not be using Static Addressing but let the systems set their own as required.

Just run the Network Setup Wizard and let Windows set it's own settings.

Try unplugging the Power to the Modem

by OH Smeg Moderator In reply to thank you

leave it disconnected for about 30 seconds and then plug it back in. It could have been hit by a Power Spike which scrambled it.

Unplugging and allowing it to clear will cure that issue.

thx again i did it

but as i said before the problem in the modem i try another one and it worked good
am just worry why the cable is work on my desktop and not work on laptop
but its done i buy new modem and everything is working fine now

Good to hear.

by OH Smeg Moderator In reply to thx again

As for the old Modem it is always possible that it's not compatible with the OS, Vista has several issues with external Modems that shouldn't really have happened but they did.
