Ok, so it’s supposed to SO easy…but somehow I am messing up…
Here’s the setup:
For Livewire Device 1 (D1):
In upstairs bedroom, connect D1 directly to power socket, connect the network cable coming from the AT&T DSL modem to this D1.
Next, I connect another network cable from D1 to my desktop in the same room. Now, when I turn on desktop, I connect to the Internet by supplying my ISP username/password, works fine.
For LIvewire Device 2 (D2):
In down stairs living room, I connect D2 to power socket and connect network cable from D2 to my laptop.
The laptop’s network indicator icon shows limited connectivity. I look at properties and it shows 100mbps connection but says cannot assign ip address.
What am I doing wrong?
