Re: [TWC] Best way to connect TWC RR Internet to two computers?

said by rblenkhorn:

»www.walmart.com/ip/Cisco-Linksys···12538152 is all you need.. unplug cable modem. hook ethernet cable from cable modem to WAN side of router . If using ethernet, run one ethernet cable from computer to LAN1 of router. run other ethernet cables from computers to LAN ports.. plug in cable modem, allow it to sync "all lights solid green" , plug in router, test connection from a computer.. should be working without a problem.

That router is a piece of junk (I used to own one).
If you want wired only (no wireless network), I'd get the $25 TPlink router listed on this page (second item for me). It does not have gigabit ethernet, but if you aren't moving large files between your computers, that isn't a big deal. »www.newegg.com/Wired-Routers/Sub···er=PRICE

For a decent wireless router (modern technology), I would recommend this $50 TPlink router. I just bought one for my parents since the wireless on their old router died, and I had them set up pretty fast. There are cheaper options out there but this one fit their needs (and mine when I'm home) with wireless n and gigabit ethernet.

There are cheaper/more expensive options out there. The wired router would probably be your cheapest bet, and a cheaper wireless router might suit you better depending on your use case.

A reply to all,

When I had DSL, if I added a router after the DSL CPE and before my computers I would get two different subnets, one from the CPE and one from the router, and so the network could not properly assign IPs.

Is the TWC CPE set up differently such that this cannot happen when I add a router, or are there special settings and concerns in the setup process to ensure that can't happen?

What cable modem do you have? Even with the gateway cable modems. (They act as both modem and router.) TW can place them in bridge mode then they supply the router with a public IP address. Your router then supplies private ip to your hardware. No double NAT going on.

It is a Scientific Atlanta 2100, recently installed. Service has been nothing short of fantastic. What can you tell me about it and its likely set up or how to discover its setup?

Hi dcurrey, others,

Here is a netstat /all scan result and an ipconfig /all result. Do I need TWC to do something different here for me before I can add a router and connect two computers?

All you have to do is plug the cable going into your PC into the WAN port of your new router. Following that, unplug the power to your modem and plug it back in again. This will make sure your modem sees your router as the new end device. When all this is said and then, there's no reason you shouldn't have Internet access from the LAN side. It may not hurt to do a ipconfig /release on your PC before disconnecting it from the modem. You can also restart the computer too. This will ensure you pull an IP address from your router. Hope this helps!
