Problem Sharing Internet in 3 Computers

By nitobd ·
Hi,
I'm trying to install a network at home, but without success.
I bought a 4 port SOHO router Model CING914 and 3 RJ 45. One 5 feet, 60 feet and 70 feet.Also I have a DSL Internet account.
By doing the installation,I follow all the instruction given on Router manual, but the internet was only able to work on the computer with 5 feet, the left 2 were not working(wit 60 and 70 feet). However, if I go the properties of Networking Places and then click on Local Area Connection of the 2 computers, I can see the connection counting but is not receiving or sending packets. The other that happens is that if I bring these computers and connect them to the 5 feet cable, the both work well.
I would to ask if someone can give me advice if I have to change the router, cables or the NICs.

Thans

possibly bad cables if the 5 ft. one works on all three but the longer ones don't. I've got a laptop at home wired with 100 ft. of Cat 5 with 4 other computers with varin Cat 5 lenghts on a 4 port router and no problems at all.

If I understood well your answer, do you think I should change the UTP cable to the Cat 5?

is your router hooked via it's uplink port to the LAN port on the DSL router? if you move your good 5 foot cable to the port on the DSL router that your non-working computers are on, does it work then? does your long cable work on the port that works for your 5 foot cable? i don't think it is the cable. do you have link lights on all router ports connected to computers? can you ping all the computers from each other? can all the computers ping the DSL router?

Yes, my router is connected from DSL modem, and if I move the 5 foot cable to a different port, still is going to work and not the 2 left ones, and I can see the link light on all router ports but not on the NIC's(in computers), only when I connect them to the 5 foot cable.

Hi again, and thanks for answering me so quilkly.
From the first answer, I would like to know if you are trying to say if RJ-45 is different with Cat 5? should I change the RJ-45 to Cat 5?

For the second answer:
Yes, my router is connected from DSL modem, and if I move the 5 foot cable to a different port, still is going to work and not the 2 left one's, and I can see the link light on all router ports but not on the NIC's, only when I connect them to the 5 foot cable.

There are 2 types of CAT 5 cable, cross-over and pass-through. Sounds like you only have one of the cross-overs. I would buy a few more and swap em out for those other ones not working (they appear to be pass-through or both have faulty ends) Pass-through cables are used for hub-hub or computer-computer but not hub-computer.

Thanks to all for answering my request. I found out that when I was intalling the wires, I had tied them so much that the data were not able to flow over the cable. After unscrew them and instal again, they were able to work fine.
So the problem was the that I had tied them against the wall.
