so basically here is my problem... the arris(internet box) is connected to my other box(ill call it 2wire), that gives off a wifi signal. everything can connect to 2wire through wifi, but only my ps3 gets an internet signal. so everything is obtaining the IP adress just not the internet


this is a picture of me attempting to draw it out

----------------------------------------------------------=====[ps3]
---------------------------------------------giving
wall=====[Arris]=====[2wire]wireless =====[computer]--------this is the way i think i used to have it
---------------------------------------------signal
----------------------------------------------------------=====[otherobjects]

the thing that is causing complications is that from the arris to the computer, it uses the same wire/connection as lan, and i only have 1 of those connections on my computer


wall-----[Arris]------[computer] the way the company set it up



if i need to explain more, or need to provide additional details or if i have this set up completely wrong, reply and ill try to get back as soon as i can

-i have windows vista home edition
-the IP settings are all set to automatic
-my computer can connect to the 2wire using a lan cable, or wireless
