When I lived with my parents(a day ago lol)

I was sharing a router with my little bro and we found a way round it.

By getting wireless connection.

:j: that will solve the problem. :no:

Not too sure how else you could solve the issue.

Inshallah someone else may know another way round this if you can't get wireless connection.

 

Just my small input. :D

You shouldn't lose your connection. Please give more details on your setup. How does your sisters computer connect to the router? There should be 1 cable going from her modem to the router, and another from the router to her computer. And yours should make the third cable. If you take a look at the back of your router, and tell me how many RJ45 cables you have at the back that would help.

 

Does your sisters computer get the connection through the router?

Walaykum salam,

 

It shouldn't matter if your sister's computer remains on or off...as long as the router+cable modem is plugged in, it should work for you. To the best of my knowledge...unless you're connecting via a cable connected to your sister's comp, from your comp? In which case, I'd advise to plug it direct to the router, or use wireless...

Hi

 

have any more details on how your connected to the internet? By the sound of it your connecting over a Lan ( local area network ) to her computer, and shes using ICS ( internet connection sharing ) to allow you access. Does she have two Nic's ( Network interface cards ) and your plugged into one or are you plugging straight into the router? if your plugging into the router just run the network wizard which comes with windows and choose the options the apply to you. ( connect through a gateway then add your routers local ip to your network properties page :sl:

 

Peace

:sl: sister,

 

There should be 1 cable going from the modem to the router, and another going from the router to her computer. In total there should be 2 network cables plugged into the back of the router.

 

As long as the router is on, you should be able to get a connection through your wireless USB network adapter (your sisters computer doesn't need to be on).

 

If it doesn't allow you to connect to the router, then it has been set up wrong. The cable which your sister uses to connect the modem to her computer, is it a USB cable or a network cable?

Assalamu Alaykum sis Samina

 

We have the exact same Belkin router you have, and just like bro Mehmet said, you can receive the internet signal even though your sister's comp is off, so long as you have the router plugged in and switched on.

 

Follow the instructions by the members above as my comp knowledge is pretty limited :sl:

 

And here's some extra info:

Sister, your last post contradicts all that you mentioned before, which caused others to try and help you, based on wrong the explanation that you gave them. Please appreciate members' time and do post the correct info from the start.
