Re: need help with router
Well, it seems like the laptop is not connecting to the network. When the wireless router is on, what does the laptop say when it finds the signal? Make sure the cable modem is plugged into the internet port of the router, too. All the ports are not the same. It would help if we knew the make and model of the router and your laptop.
For most routers, you need to set up the router from a wired connection. Assuming that you have at least 1 CAT5 (network) cable, just plug your laptop into the router in the number 1 slot. Insert the setup disc that came with your router, and follow the instructions.
