Please someone help. I just got an ADSL Wireless Modem With G Router 802.11g 54mbps. I want it to make my pc AND laptop have internet. Both are wireless enabled. But theres so many cables making it hard for me :S

Ive plugged the modem router into the plug socket in the wall and put the ethernet RJ45 cable in it from the back of my pc. Then i put the phone cable in the router but there is still a cat5 cable in the old modem and when i take it out the internet is lost. Also, i cant put it in the new router because theres no hole for it.

Thanks a lot if you help :whistling:.

What kind of router (Linksys, Belkin, Netgear)? Does it need to be configured to the requirements of the ISP? What are those requirements? Inner or outer pair? What are the VCI and VPI for the ISP network? What type of network ID (PPPoe, PPPoa, MAC or other)? Will It (your router) accept automatic DNS or do you need to hard code it? If you bridge the modem Will the router do your network log on? Is leaving the modem plugged in realy an issue if the internet works?

Ive plugged the modem router into the plug socket in the wall and put the ethernet RJ45 cable in it from the back of my pc. Then i put the phone cable in the router but there is still a cat5 cable in the old modem and when i take it out the internet is lost.


Are you by chance on a fiber optics connection and the modem(?) a device for network sign in? I'm not able to envision your set up.
