OK follow this.... I have a DLink 713P wireless router. I have two wireless connections that are functioning, but when I plug in a wired connection to my Broadcomm 4400 ethernet adapter I can not connect to the internet. I do not even get a valid IP address. I am using Optonline in CT. Can anyone help me here. I even purchased a new wireless router and it would not even work. Thanks

Maybe its your Broadcom adapter? Its doubtful two routers would be bad. Do you have another ethernet card you could replace it with? Are your two wireless connections coming from a laptop? If so, I would try plugging in a network cable from the laptop to the router and see if you can get an IP.

Also, you don't have anything on the router to only allow a certain number of connections or certain MAC addresses do you?

Sounds like you may have to configure each connections IP addresses independently, I had this problem before, and it was caused by windows looking to the wrong connection for internet connection and so on.
