Take the input wire out of the router. Stick that wire in your network card if you have one in your machine.

Go Start>settings>network connections>from the left hand list, select ''make a new connection''. Follow the wizard.

Also, disable the wireless connection in the lower right hand corner.

fix?

I'm unsure how to do this with windows 2000 but you need to look for some kind of setup wizard. Try looking around your network places (the properties etc)

EDIT: Yeh that ^^ :whistling:

also...your modem may have come with an installation CD...if it did you'll need to run that to install the modem driver's on your pc...it will also help walk you through the connection setup
