(1) Check to see if network setting in B work properly. (most likely problem)

(2) Maybe router should be set with NATP not NAT for both to access internet same time.

Has this never worked, or has it stopped working recently ?

i mean the the two cables running from the netgear router.i think the broadband modem is connected to the router and the other cables feed out to the computers.thanx

how is computer b not working? internet wise? or network wise? check firewalls are turned off and then retry. If it is xp, it has a built in firewall which can be turned off in network connection properties.

i dont think its the router.becouse computer A is still online its just that B isn't.she is using win 2000.i think it could be the setup.how would she go about reseting it?.cheers
