Three of us have been trying to connect a computer thru a router to cable Internet all evening and we have determined that the computer is not talking to the router properly. The jack is fine (we plugged in my laptop and it worked) and the computer connects fine when we connect it DIRECTLY to the modem. However, when we attempt to connect thru the router, we get a yellow !
If this has anything to do with it, we just moved house. All the OTHER computers in the house (both Windows XP and a laptop using Windows 98) are able to connect thru the router fine. It's just this one.
The computer is running Windows XP and the router is a Netgear. We are on an RJ 45 network.
