    How to use Ethernet Port to output internet


    Hello all, this is my first post on this forum, but not my first forum post. I have an HP model 110-243w and to keep it simple, it does have built-in Wi-Fi and that works fine, but I would like to be able to plug something into the ethernet port on the back and use that to connect to the wifi. For example, If I go to my router and plug something into its ports on the back, that device is now connected to the network and I would like to emulate this with my machine. I am confident that it is possible because I have seen things online, but they don't work. They want me to enter the properties of the wireless network and enable sharing but I get the error saying that the service cannot accept messages at this time. I could really use some help right now, so any is appreciated, thanks.

    :)

  2. How to use the ethernet port connection

    Hi,

    Do you have the MC75 sled with the Ethernet port? If so then you should be abe to setup the Ethernet driver that is built into the device. It should tell you any IP address information as part of the driver.



    From my review of the specs, they do not have a built-in Ethernet port. However they do have Wi-Fi and optionally cellilar networks.

    How to use the ethernet port connection

    I saw an ethernet port on my PDA charger, does it mean I can assign an ip to my PDA?



    If so, may I know how to make it. I just begin on it, may you give more details, thanks.

    How to use Ethernet Port to output internet

    It's pretty straight forward. You run a cat5e or cat6 cable from your modem/router to your PC. Plug one end in one of the router ethernet ports (generally labeled as 1- 4) then take the other end and plug it into your LAN port on the mobo (generally at the back of PC).

    What make/model PC do you have? What make/model of modem/router do you have? What ISP are you using?

    Well, as stated in my specs, I have a HP model110-243w. I would do that, although I cannot as I do not have the option to use a wired ethernet setup, an internal wifi card is my only choice. I have an Ethernet device, I would like to plug that device into the ethernet port on the back of my machine and connect to the wifi, using my computer as an Ethernet-to-Wifi adapter of sorts. Thanks for your help, but it is not really possible. My ISP is Charter

    I think the OP is referring to what used to be called 'internet connection sharing'. I haven't used that function for years (and never on Windows 10), but Googling that term might point you in the right direction. R-click my network adapter gives this window, which mentions sharing

    You will need a special cable called a cross over cable not a normal Network cable if you aren't going via a router or switch

    How to use Ethernet Port to output internet

    Right, it's all in how the wires are arranged in the plug. I make up my own cables and the process can be tricky, if it doesn't work can only cut the plugs off and try again with a new one. The plugs are a one-time shot, once crimped can't be used again and can't be tested without first being crimped. I don't see cross-over cables in local stores but can be ordered on the 'net, I usually go the Computer Parts, Cables and Hard to Find Computer Accessories - Cyberguys.com
    or Amazon.

    A lot of LAN sockets are auto-sensing nowadays, and will adapt to either a straight cable or crossover. Could explain why you haven't seen crossover cables in stores/online for a while.
