Goings On

It was a perfect day for a bike ride on the North Bend Rail Trail. These are some of the children in the youth group.
I've been trying to network my three Dell computers (of varying ages). Got any ideas?

My name is Todd and I'm a customer advocate at Dell's corporate headquarters. We saw your post and while we don't normally help set up private networks I thought I'd try to help a bit.

The easiest way to network the systems would be to buy a router and network cables at any local computer store. Even stores such as Walmart and Target would carry them these days.

Unless you've changed any of the networking default setups on the systems you should be able to network them. If you have internet security software on the systems, like McAfee or Norton, that have a firewall, you may have to turn off the firewall so all systems can communicate.

Let me know if this helps. For more detailed information you may want to try a Google search on setting up a network, but essentially the easiest way to do it is with a router.

If you want to contact me feel free to email us at Please put my first name (Todd) in the subject line of the email so it gets routed to me quicker.

Thank you,
