I have a router which takes in 4 connections, i.e. 4 PCs. There is one place still unused in the router. To connect my newly bought Laptop can I just plug it in there and surf on the internet. Or some configuration is also required?
Open Internet explorer and choose Tools then Connections then make sure LAN settings is set to Automatic. If it comes up with a blank page Click on detect Network settings and let it run ti takes a while.
If you wish to connect to the other pcs then thats a different matter.
