As the title indicates, I am unable to connect more than 1 computer to the same network.
Scenario: I own a Toshiba Satellite A660-11M which has a built-in Broadcom 802.11n adapter. I am using a Wireless-N 300Mbps Access Point, specifically this one. I followed the manual on setting it up, and it is currently running at most of its default-settings:
- Static IP
- Working mode: Access Point
- Security: WPA-PSK/WPA2-PSK
- Channel Width: Auto
- "Frequency Band": 20/40MHz
Issue: This time, my issue is merely related to the fact that no other computer but mine (or presumably any computer that enters the network first), can access the internet via that Access Point (which is hooked to a cable modem).
I would just like to know if there is a solution to this; maybe I am missing a setting, or maybe I have enabled something that causes this.
Thank you again very much!
- I tried connecting the second computer to the network in the most usual way: The OS finds the network, you double-click it to connect and type the password. The second computer did manage to access the network, but remained unable to access the internet (i.e. network without internet connectivity). When trying to load a website in Chrome, (I think) the result was a timeout - I do not quite recall what the message was, but it was not a standard "you don't have internet, please connect to the internet" message.
- The second computer was the exact same model, with the exact same technical specifications as my computer (i.e. Toshiba Satellite A660-11M).
- I have no setup any security options, so I do not think there is any MAC-address filtering unless such features get enabled by default. I have only setup a WPA2-Personal password.
