Thread: need a way to get on the network

    Default need a way to get on the network

    I need access to a LAN. However, the administration issues a specific computer to each person that they configure for use on the LAN. This was three years ago, and the laptop I have is severely outdated. Since then I have built my own desktop and now want to hook that one up. What I didn't realize was that the administration will not configure any computers that were not issued by them. I have tried plugging it straight into the wall, and when I check the network connections it will show a positive connection but internet explorer or anything else requiring network access will not work. I have also tried a router, with the same result. Is there some way to hook up through the laptop to simulate a proper security configuration? Any help is greatly appreciated.

    PLug in your laptop, find out the IP address / network settings, put those settings in your desktop machine. Unplug laptop, plug in desktop.
