My desktop can't connect to dial-up anymore after I used my laptop to connect to dial-up RRS feed

  • Question

  • Before I got my laptop, I only used my desktop to go online. When my laptop arrived, I unplugged the internet cable connecting modem to my computer and connected a new one to my laptop. When I want to use my desktop to go online, I just switch the internet cables. After a week of doing that though, my laptop suddenly shows that I have three broadband connections (all connects using the same password), and my desktop couldn't connect anymore. My desktop could always connect before, so I assume I clicked the wrong things on my laptop that caused this connection problem.

  • Hi Customer,

     

    Thank you for post here.

     

    Before proceeding, let's clarify the below questions. Are you using ADSL modem? Have you got any error message?  Then to resolve your problem, you might need to re-configure your dial-up connection on your desktop.

    Meanwhile, you could also deploy Internet Connection Sharing(ICS) or add a router to resolve the problem.
