Setting up One-way cable modem.....

by Michael Geist / November 9, 2003 5:47 AM PST

through a Linksys 4 port router for a friend. Pat-Media is the provider and does not support the splitting of there signal but say on there website that it can be done. My question is:

the modem is connected as usual to the routers WAN port, how does one set up the routers configuration when working with a dialup upload?

From what I can gather, one-way modem sharing through this router(Linksys BEFSR41) is a no go. Some form of software proxy server is more likely to work. Am I reading this correctly?

Thanks Bob

Hooking up a panasonic bd to internet?
by tngiloy / November 25, 2008 2:33 AM PST

Please forgive me, but this is not a reply but a new question. I'm showing my computer ignorance by not knowing how to post a new question on this thread.
My situation- I have a dsl modem and I am hard-wire connected to the internet on my mac mini via ethernet cable and my windows notebook (in another room)via wireless (802.11 I think). There is only one ethernet connection on the dsl modem box(actiontec gt701-wg) and I need that to hook up my mac mini.
My problem-I have a panasonic bd55 blu-ray that has 2.0 capablities if connected to the internet, including automatic firmware upgrades.
When I asked at BB how to connect the bd55 to the internet I was told the best (?only) way to do it was with a unit that connects the ethernet port to a unit that plugs into a wall socket and sends the connection to another unit plugged into an outlet in another part of the house, where my bd55 is located.To do this I will need to buy the 'outlet connection' (sorry, I forgot exactly what its called) for $100 and get a new dsl modem that has more than 1 ethernet connection for $70-$100.
My question-Isn't there a better way that doesn't use my electrical outlets, but can send the internet signal to an 802.11 receiver that can be located near the blu-ray with an ethernet connection for less cost?
Thanks in advance,

I posted it here because I could not find a way to start a new discussion topic on you site.
I will ask on another website that is more user freindly where the people are more knowledgible and helpful.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
