Adding a secon PC to a router

by Alan Copeland / January 15, 2006 9:20 PM PST

I have a Linksys WRT54GS wireless router running with my HP 306MHz P4 PC that has been working fine, but I decided to hardwire my second PC (Compaq 5000 700MHz Celeron) to overcome so-so signal strength. I disabled the wireless connection and enabled a Local Area Conenction. I am connected, but it runs slower than dial up. Am I suppose to do anything that I haven't done?
