    Ok, i'm trying to hook up a wireless router at my dad's house.

    I got to a point where it asks for the IP address, the "subnet mask", "Gateway", "DNS1" and "DNS2"

    I did the same thing for my sister on her computer. When I got to that point on hers it automatically filled everything in and I got to keep going.

    That's not the case here and the only thing I know of what it is is the I.P. address.

    Can anyone tell me wtf a "subnet mask", the "Gateway" and the DNS things are, and how to find them?

    I got the help I needed on another forum I posted this at.

    I'd delete the thread if I could.

    What kind did he get?

    I was using a Linksis, it lasted about 2 and a 1/2 weeks before it started to give me problems.

    I now have a D-Link

    I used Lynksys in Chula, at my sisters, and my dad has it now.

    The previous 2 have worked just fine. Maybe you just had a bad one.
