Your cloning the mac address - thats the problem. It should use it's own mac address to connect to the modem. You need to power down the modem, then repower after a minute or so to let it connect to the new mac address. The problem you are seeing is due to network collisions betweenj the desktop and the router with the modem.

NOTE: The following setup info .is for da PPPoA connection type.(most common in UK).
Its advised to keep da ethernet connected to your laptop untill you configure da wireless on the router, you can disconnect da ethernet cable after the confoguration is over to connect wirelessly.
Try the following: check if your PC is communicating correctly with router. (You might need to restart the computer, after the router is connected to it). On the desktop click on Start and then on Run. In the open box, type cmd.
It will bring up the command prompt window
Type command ipconfig in that window and press the Enter / Return key on the keyboard. It will bring up results similar to the image below.
Note the values of IP Address and Default Gateway in the ipconfig command results. If the IP address is in the range of 169. 254.x.x or 0.0.0.0, then your PC is not communicating to the router. In such a case contact your router vendor for support.
If the IP Address is in the range of 192.168.x.x then the network setup should be ok. Note down the values of IP Address and Default Gateway. Close the command prompt window.
Open Internet Explorer window and in the address bar type in the address that you found for Default Gateway. In case of a Netgear router it should be 192.168.0.1
It should bring up the logon window similar to the image below. Type the router username and password in the respective text boxes. Refer your product manual for the default Router username and password. In case of most Netgear routers, default username is admin and password is password. Then click on the Login button to continue.
In the next window that appears, click on the setup wizard button
This should bring up the Setup Wizard page similar to the image below. Select Country as UK and Language as English. Under Auto-Detect Connection Type, select No. Then click on Next button.
Basic Settings page will appear. Under Does Your Internet Connection Require A Login?, select Yes.
Configure the following settings in the window:
Then ckick on da wireless settings option.( its on the left pane on the window).
- keep the channel as 11.
- mode can be g&b
Make sure that da option WIRELESS ACCESS POINT is enabaled.
Also check da security options .... I would suggest use WPA-PSK encryption.
make a note of da shared key(network password).
ckick apply and wait till it saves the settings.
Disconnect the ethernet and try connecting to the wireless network with the correct security key.
Hope this helps you.

and then "device manager", then click on the + sign next to "network
adapters" and right click on the wireless network and "un-install" the
device, reboot the PC and wait for windows to detect the wireless
card and install the drivers for it, this will appear in the system

If you purchased a Linksys wireless roter then you shoul not need the switch anymore-
Try going directly from your time warner modem into the Interner/WAN port on the router and then plug your desktop computer and the vontage phone system into 2 of the ports on the router. After everything is hooked up you will probably need to power cycle for it all to work correctly.
Please power cycle in this order:
Reboot modem - then Router- then Vontage phone system.
Hope this helps
