Default Wireless Internet Query

My ISP is blueyonder Broadband and recently bought a router and adapter.

I set it all up and it works fine but recently my computer messed itself up (it wasn't my fault, honest).

So now I need to format, but my computer is in the loft and the modem is downstairs (it's a cable modem, so I can't move it).

When I install the internet normally I have to plug the modem into my computer so it recognises it. But how can I do that now?

My question: Is there any way to get the internet on my computer without me dragging my heavy-ass computer down two flights of stairs?

Thanks

Default Re: Wireless Internet Query

other options besides bringing the computer downstairs is get a really long cable...haha, um, no......or get a wireless router maybe (may have to get a wireless adapter for your computer too). just a suggestion, maybe someone with more experience could help more.....
