here's my problem. my desktop is connected to the internet thru a cable modem. I tried putting a wireless router in the mix but nothing will work, including the desktop. my laptop shows a connection but I cannot access the internet, wireless or RJ45. same with the desktop. I'm connecting the router between the cable modem and desktop tower, which is per the instructions. I tried modifying the router but ad no luck. the router is a chiefmax 802.11b wireless router for DSL of cable modem. thanks in advance.
