Do you know what the IP address of the Router is?
Most use 192.168.0.1. If yours is set differently, then change these instructions to match it.
(Assuming Windows XP)
Start->Control Panel->Network Connections.
Right Click Local Area Connection, Properties
Click Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)
Click "Use the following IP address"
Ip Address: 192.168.0.2
Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway: 192.168.0.1
Preferred DNS Server: 192.168.0.1
See if that helps.
If your router's IP is something else, say 172.16.104.1, then use that for Default Gateway and Preferred DNS Server, and use something like 172.16.104.2 or 172.16.104.15 as the IP address. Subnet Mask should still be the same.
Duct tape is like the force. It has a light side, a dark side, and it holds the universe together
