  soggy pillow 17:12 11 Apr 2006

i bought a belkin 54g wirless network. the blue cable that came with the router is a rj45-rj45 this cable fits the router but not my computer so i cannot get the internet on my second computer what should i do?

Are you sure you are trying it in the LAN port rather than the modem port? Sorry about the inference but I can't see why it will not fit.

What sort of computer do you have?

its a hyunju. when i look at the back of the tower there is not a port big enough to fit the cable into the port is only big enough for an rj11 connection

If it does not fit then you have not got a Lan and you neeed to fit a PCI Lan card

If I understand you,your pc does not have rj45 so you could buy a pci card (rj45) or go wireless.

how much would a PCI Lan card cost me as im only 14 and do not make much money

I think the last I bought (Maplins own) was about £6.
