Windows XP / cable Internet / home network

By Tech Support ·
I have 2 Dell Dimension 2350 on a home network. I am attempting to connect to cable internet through the cable modem and Linksys 4-port Router.

The cable company requires setting the router to Static [fixed] IP address;

but the Broadcom 440x 10/100 Integrated Controller is a WAN (PPP/SLIP) Interface.

The internet connection is not working; will it work with the router set at Static IP address and the integrated controller is PPPoE?

Am I needing to buy a PCI 10/100 Ethernet Card? I will appreciate all the help I can get. I am using dialup until I resolve my issues.

(thanks in advance)

a few solutions

by pablo_gg In reply to Windows XP / cable Intern ...

what you have to do is set a network ip eg ( for the router. then fill in all the required information e.g. username, password etc, in to the memory of the router. then in the tcp/ip settomgs of your network cards for the computers make them have a static ip address in the range of - remembering you can only have one ip address per computer. then in the gateway field put in the router ip and in the dns server field you must put in the ip of your internet dns servers which you can get from your internet company.... that should be it. thats how i have my internet set up, i use a router (Billion ADSL router) connected through a hub to my pc's and its all good..... i hope this has helped!!!!
