You will simply need to use a network cable (RJ45 - 8pin connector) from your network port on your computer to the computer port on your DSL modem.

Remember, AT&T has a special process for setting up the service and it will not automatically connect until you've run the setup from AT&T.

Can I run 2 laptops off the same modem


There are several ways. Windows XP & Vista & 7 have 'ICS' ("Internet Connection Sharing") that allows you to connect the second computer to the first computer, and the first computer to the modem, so that the first computer is a "gateway" to the Internet for the second computer.

Or, buy a "router" -- connect the modem to the "uplink" port on the router,
and connect (wired or wirelessly) multiple computers to the "LAN" ports on the router.
The router acts as a "gateway" to the Internet for all the computers on the LAN.

Use a 2-wire or 4-wire cable to connect from the telephone-jack to the telephone-port on your DSL modem/router combination device.

Use an 8-wire Ethernet cable to connect from one of the 'LAN' ports on the router to the network-port on your laptop.

Then, you will have Internet access, and, if this router also has a "wireless" capability, you can configure it to provide wireless access to your computer(s).

Sitecom WL-342 Wireless Router won't access internet.


Hello,

Make sure there is a network cable going from your ADSL modem into the WAN connection of the router.

If the ADSL modem is wireless, then it is also a router in whihc case you will want to bypass the WL-342 all together.

Thanks,

Pat
