Have desktop, operating XP. Netopia DSL modem.
Purchased Cisco Linksys E1000 Wireless Router.

My computer is not recognizing the router. When I plug blue internet cable directly into computer-wala-internet. Inline through E1000 I get nothing.
Using this router for wireless PS3 and Ipod touch. Computer is wired directly.

What the hec do I do??? Thanks in advance

If I understand you correctly, other devices can connect using the router but your XP when wired to the router cannot connect. I assume you have tried a different cable or used the cable to connect another device so we can concentrate on the PC.

Start, All Programs, Accessories, Command Prompt. Type with an Enter after each line:

ipconfig  /all  >  \junk.txt

notepad  \junk.txt 


(I use two spaces in the code box so you can see where one space goes)

Copy and paste the text from notepad into a Reply.

Also what make and mode of computer is this? If the network card is a separate card or adapter what make and mode is it.

Thanks Ron for your reply. My wireless is now up and running. Router and modem were not communicating properly. I ended up changing the gateway address on the modem and bang....wireless. Strange problem.
Anywho, I appreciate your time and reply!
