whew...kind of scared the bejeezus out of me...so everything worked on dialup...
switched to broadband and now you've got one computer that WILL connect to the internet and one that won't...it's possible that your ISP will only allow one computer to access the internet...(some isp's do this)...is the iblitz device just a router...or is it a router/modem combo? was it purchased seplerately or from the ISP?

correct cable into modem cat 5 from modem to router then pc's into router port 1 and port 2 of the router.

Installation
In areas where Home Networking is not yet available, our standard technician install will prepare your cable outlet for High-Speed Internet and will set up your cable modem and your network gateway computer for High-Speed Internet service unless you choose our self-activation option. All other wiring and installation required to set up your home network is your responsibility.

Support
Adelphia will support your High-Speed Internet connection to the cable modem and your network's gateway computer. Adelphia does not support any other computers or peripheral equipment you may have on your network. If you contract with someone to install your home network, be sure to inquire about the support services they offer.

Service Quality
In general, you can service two or three additional computers without seeing a noticeable change in speed. However, your actual results will depend on a number of factors including your signal strength, network configuration, etc. Each additional computer using the Internet will take a share of the bandwidth you are receiving. Therefore, you will eventually see slower speeds depending on how many additional computers you place on your network.

if you unplug the "broken" machine and plug the other one back in..does the internet sped return to normal? if so you can DL sp2 and burn to a disk to transfer it...
