Router Problems


I have a TP-LINK TL-R460 router
I can go on internet on each computer BUT 1 at a time(it seems to switch the other off?)
I want to share internet so both can go on internet
I want to set up a folder on each computer so the other can fetch and leave files in there
I want to IM each computer(like msn, Gain) but just on my network?
Any help would be nice But in PLAIN ENGLISH
Computer 1 SUSE 10.0
Computer 2 XP Home

If you have a standard router, it should work without a problem. What IP addresses have been assigned to each system?

Under linux, you can get the IP from 'ifconfig', and 'ipconfig' on Windows.

I really hope you're not calling someone else a newbie here.

Of course your IP is the same from whatsmyip.com; it's reporting your external IP, not your internal ones.

Might want to read up on how this stuff works.

Ahhh, gotcha.

You can find beginner books on Linux just about at any bookstore with a computer section. Same with networking (which seems to be what you're having issues with).

You might even read up on your router's documentation (the latest should be able to be found at the manufacturer's website) and make sure there isn't some arcane or off-the-wall setting to allow it to switch between a router and a simple firewall (or some other queer thing).

First off, welcome to the LQ community!

Now, this appears to have already caused some confusion. If you have seen any of the posts here at LQ.org there is a (what I find refreshing) lack of l33tsp3@k.

If you could post your responses

I'm sure that would help avoid any confusion and make it easier for others to help you out.

Now, to find your computer's IP, as opposed to the one Public IP that your whole home network shares, see the links below:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ipconfig

Sorry for the confusion

I went to the links you suggested
I put ipconfig /all on windows the ip says 192.168.1.101
I put ifconfig on linux the inett addr says 192.168.1.100
I hope this is right!

I didn't want to buy a book I wanted to read online if possible?

"make sure there isn't some arcane or off-the-wall setting to allow it to switch between a router and a simple firewall (or some other queer thing)."

Its both I'm on the net and its firewall its stealth except port 1030 checked it on https://www.grc.com

whats l33tsp3@k?

It's Internet slang, also known as leet speak.

I have no clue what sos means in this case. Like some others, I assumed it was some sort of leet acronym and that originally you were calling everyone else a newbie because you couldn't find ifconfig/ipconfig.

To answer your first question (can get outside from one PC, but cannot from the other, and vise versa):
There is no overload on the NAT statement (I am coming from Cisco world), or if in terms of pix's (again Cisco) maximum number of connections is set to 1 on the globa, or static entry. How to fix it, you might ask, you should consult your router's documentation.
Hope this helps.
