I went out and bought another RJ 45 CAT 5 coupler and connected a 10 ft ethernet cable to the coupler, and this is where the problem lies. I can not get a connection using this second coupler. I tested the connection without the second coupler with my laptop and it works. SO, is there anyway you can connect to the internet giving my situation. I am completely stumped right now.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
