    HELP!! I have two new computers both running Win XP home edition and a Linksys WAG54G. At the moment I do not need to use the wireless capability but just want to give wired internet access to two computers using the same broadband connection. I have configured the ADSL gateway and set up the first computer which works fine. When I connect the second computer to the ADSL gateway, it does not connect to the internet and the ethernet card gives a message saying that it has limited functionality. Using the Windos repair function makes no difference. When I remove the second cable from the gateway, Device Manager shows the ethernet card as working perfectly. What do I have to do to get the second computer sharing the same broadband connection?
