Hey, i didnt know where to put this...so i put it here, okay, we have two computers, ones a walmart special, and one is cusom, but its a dinosaur..anyways both ethernet cards are onboard, we can both connect to the internet just fine... but we got a router so we both can, its a netgear FS605 the full serial is FS605B34CB057206 for some reason it lets one of us connect through the router, and the other gets a "limited or no connectivity" error..... we do not have the software for the router...and i cant seem to find the default ip for this brand of router so i cant connect to it and fidget with settings there....so im at a loss....if anyone can help id be very thankful!

The netgear FS605 is just a switch not a router.

I found this page that seems to explain it in a way I can't. I'd get more techy.

If you bought this from a store, take it back and ask for a router.
