Re: direct connect vs router
you have to reset the modem ANYTIME you hook up a diferent device then was directly connected before hand. Hook your computer up to the modem directly, then unplugg the power from the modem for 30 seconds and plug it back in. Give it about 1 minute to sync with the network and you should be able to connect just fine.
