Local Area Connection (Status: duration - incrementing, speed 100mbps).

Dell Netbook: Wireless Network Connection (Status: Disabled)

Is one connection when I directly connect to Linksys and the other for WIFI? Do I need to disable one or should all be running?

Re: network connections

What do you mean with "directly" and with "WIFI"?

Assuming that the 100mbs is a wired connection, and the other the wireless, things seem fine. If the PC/laptop has wireless, but is connected wired also, the wired connection takes preference, and the wireless connection is not used.

If everything works now, I shouldn't change anything.

I think you have answered my concerns. I was most worried about having two connections and if they were both sending/receiving data.

What I meant by "directly" and "WIFI" is by using the cable (I forgot the correct name) connected directly to the router or by using WIFI with no cable connection.

In any case I think I have it now. Thanks
