    Are you trying to connect the two computers together using the adapter, or trying to connect two computers to a network using a adapter?

You can connect your computers using a hub or a cross over cable instead of a hub as suggested by "gameovr".
A hub allows you to connect more than 2 computers depending the number of ports available on the hub, where as a cross over cable will only allow you to connect 2 computers together.
Also you need to be using the same TCP/IP address range e.g. for one computer and for your other computer. You can use any number from 1 to 254 instead of 1 and 2 so long as each computer has a different last number.

You will either need to add a switch, or you need a crossover cable to do a direct connection. It also helps if both computers have the same workgroup label. Then you need to turn on sharing for the folders you wanted to access.

Where do I find 8 digit pin number for RTA1025WE router so we can use a Wireless N Nano USB Adapter

There are two ways to do a setup for a wireless adapter:
* use an Ethernet cable to connect a computer to one of the LAN ports on the router; login to the router; and set the SSID (the name you are choosing for your wireless network). Then, put that Nano USB adapter into the computer, and it should load the device-drivers, and eventually will ask for the name of the SSID. Then, you can disconnect the Ethernet cable, and use the wireless connection;
* as you have discovered, some routers have (and some do not have) an 8-digit 'PIN' number.

Is there an ethernet cable that will fit into a panasonic cf28 toughbook laptop as i need this in order to get it to go wireless

If there's an ethernet socket on the computer then there's a cable to fit it.
Most computers today have ethernet as standard (the socket and cable have been standard for years).
Why do you have to use the ethernet to connect wirelessly? Normally just activating the wifi in the computer and logging into the router is all that is needed.

I have comcast cable net and D-link WBR 1310

Hi, forget about the USB connection since you wanted to use a router for your wireless connection. Contact Comcast asnd make sure they assist you in making your computer connect to the Internet using the ethernet connection because you are going to use the ethernet connection for the modem-router connection. Once your computer is online with the ethernet connection, you can connect your Dlink router to the modem and configure it for Internet connection. There will be more steps before you can use the wireless connection. Just make sure you can get online with ethernet connection first.
