I am using a cable broadband from my provider which gives me a single connection with a RJ45 plug. This is inserted to my desktop and Internet is working fine. But few days ago I purchased a laptop and now wanted to share my Internet on laptop.
I have brought a D-link Modem-cum-Router (Wireless N150 ADSL2+Modem Router) , Model => DSL 2730u To do so. But I came to know that since this is ADSL modem, it expects RJ11 connection. It has one input RJ11 socket which I think I can't use since I have RJ45 connection. And it has 4 RJ45 output sockets. When nothings worked, I just plugged my RJ45 Internet cable to 1st output and and connected my desktop to the second output. My desktop works and Internet is fine. But I just can't do the same for my laptop also. I am using Windows 7 on both the systems.
I thought in the same way if I connect my laptop to the 3rd RJ45 output, it will also connect as my desktop did. But it is not working.
Am I doing something wrong.?
Please help me as I knows nothing about networking and relies on mercy of you experts.
