      2nd wired connection will not connect

      Hi

      I have the old type router connected to my desktop which works great. I also use my laptop wirelessly connected to the router which also has no problems.

      However as soon as I plug in an ethernet cable into my laptop and link to the router I cant get any connection.

      Note: I have no problems connecting to other routers elsewhere using a cable (just in my own house).

      It looks as though I have configured something wrong - can anyone help please. Much as I love wireless connections sometimes I need a bit more speed.

      Thanks

      Try turning the wireless off on your laptop b4 plugging in the ethernet cable. I find if I plug the ethernet cable in when the wireless has already connected I loose connection altogether and have to reboot my laptop. Sometimes it even crashes the router.
