Question about Linksys Wireless-G Broadband Router
Thanks again for your help!
I went through all of the steps you suggested and still there is no internet on my laptop. The IP address is 192.168.1.100 and the DNS is 192.168.1.1 I'm not sure what version of IE I have, there are Tab settings at the top, and a google search bar.
When I did the ping I typed in, "ping yahoo.com" and the response was, "Ping request could not find host yahoo.com. Please check the name and try again."
I'm not sure what kind of firewall I have in place or how to go about changing the status.
The strange thing is that on the toolbar, on the far right there is a wireless network icon and when I put my cursor over it it says:
Wireless Network Connection 2 (linksys)
Speed: 54.0 Mbps
Signal Strength: Excellent
Would I need to change the settings in the Linksys EasyLinkAdvisor (the software that came with the router)? I installed the disk on both my desktop and my laptop.
Thanks again for your time and patience.
To check the IP address of your desktop, please do this..
Go to Start>Run. Type CMD and press enter.
Then on the cursor type, ipconfig/all then press Enter.
Look for IP address.
Since you have a Cable ISP we need to do some configurations on your router. But as we setup the router for your ISP, your desktop needs to be disconnected from the modem. So, the only device that should be connected to the modem is your router.
Connect your laptop wired to the router and access the router's SETUP page. On the setup page, there is a sub tab there called MAC Address Clone. Click on it and set to enable then click on "Clone PC's MAC address". Save the settings then.
Close the router's user interface and then do a power cycle between your modem and router. To perform the power cycle, turn off the router and the modem. Wait for about a minute. Power on the modem first and when the lights on your modem are stable, turn on the router. Access the router's setup page again, go to Status and check if there is an IP address.
Please update me.

I understand. You're two computers needs to be both connected to the router. Can you tell me if your Desktop computer has an Ethernet port? Your modem should only be connected to your router. Then, the two computers have to be connected both to the router. The Desktop will be wired to the router using an Ethernet cable and the Laptop through wireless connection.
Then, access the router's setup page again. You know how to do it, right? Remember launching IE and typing 192.168.1.1? Once you're in Go to STATUS page and look for IP address. Please let me the IP address that the router receives from your modem.
The reason why you need to connect the computers to the router, is because your ISP gives only Internet IP address. If you will connect your Desktop through USB to the modem, then there is no Internet IP address left for the router for your wireless computer.
The router should be the one to receive the Internet IP address and it will be the one to share it to the two computers behind it.
Please update me about this.
