Pash Jan-25-02 11:31 PM
Hi, i have a little problem.

Im runing a dsl sharing network with the smc 7004, every computer is connected with a patch cable and everything is working fine.


but now i got an new computer and i want to connect this one and the other computer with an hub (cause there are not in the same room as the router and i only used one cable!) on the router.

for a while the connection works fine but after a while she dies and i cant connect to the internet anymore.

So, can't i use a hub on the SMC 7004??

What should i do?

PS: Sorry for my bad english!

Thanx

Connect to the SMC router with http://192.168.123.254/, determine the MODEM IP address and ping it….
