Cannot connect to a second computer as I get error message 651

Go to solution

I have moved house and in trying to get my computer set up I tried going wireless with one of them. It worked well for a week with a wireless netgear dongle then it stopped working? So I gave in to drilling holes in walls etc, cable extensions from phone sockets and connected the second computer which was not used for the wireless connection and fine, it connected to the hub OK and we got connected to the Internet.

Then I tried to connect the other computer to the hub, using the second port, and Internet and nothing just an error message 651 from the router.

My system is windows 7 64 bit. BTHub 2.0

So despite my efforts to sort LAN connections IP connection details etc error 651 keeps coming back??

Any one with any suggestions on a cure for this??

did you not consider homeplugs and same all the wiring and drilling?

yes, both are connected by ethernet cable.
Homeplugs what are they? sound like like something that I would find useful??

just google 'homeplug' there are various makes and cost

 

you can also try the forum search and see other people's comments and solutions using homeplugs - they connected to your electricity socket

reinstall windows after saving your existing documents etc. Then reconnect your pc to the hub and it works. Hurrah.
