Re: I'm having trouble using internet through laptop
Any time you change the connection from a cable modem, you have to unplug it for about 30 seconds, and plug it back up, and let it go through the cycle. Simply unplug your modem, plug the Cat5 cable into your laptop instead of your PC, and power on the modem. When it comes up, you should be able to get online. To solve this you should get a router, and you can add both and more at the same time.
