I just got the router, and I was wondering--in order to connect the other computer, it has to be with a similar cord/cable/whatever to the one they included with the router, and not a regular phone line type? The one they included is blue, and I think it's called a CAT 5 jumper (I read the tutorial on wired networking). I wanted to make sure, and it would explain why I'm having problems with the router and internet connection :\

yup...to connect to a router you need to have cat5 (or 5e or 6) cable...just go to your local computer shop and ask for a ethernet patch cable of the length that you need.
