I just got a D-Link router and am having trouble hooking both my PC and laptop to the internet at the same time.
I got a Motoralla Cable Modem.
I got the cable modem plugged into the WAN port on the router. Any suggestions?
My PC is plugged into Port 1 on the Router, and it is working properly and is connected to the internet (that's how I can put this on GeeksToGo!), however, the laptop, connected to Port 2 and it is not receiving any type of signal. Basically I just need help with possible problems.

Also, ye, my laptop has intel inside centrino mobile technology sticker on it, so I'm guessing it can hook up to the D-Link router wirelessly. The computer is a PackardBell EasyNote R7 - 172DR if that's any help. So it's really new.

If you guys can add me to your MSN edited email for security so we can do like troubleshooting or something that would be awesome.

Has anyone got any tips on how to connect it to the router. I have an ethernet cable but if I can connect it wirelessly that would be awesome. Ok, any help is appreciated.

Also if the printer is connected to the laptop how to make it also available on the PC thank you.
