So, I re-connected everything. However, when everything is connected through the router, no pages on the internet can be loaded, yet each computer on the network (1 desktop and 1 laptop) say that they are connected. When I try to ping the 192.168.1.1 IP address there are no problems. I also tried resetting the cable modem and the router, and disconnecting and re-connecting everything, and shutting down the desktop. Nothing has worked.
So, as of right now, the desktop is connected directly to the cable modem in order to have internet on one computer.
