Usually when you have a network connection but cannot access the internet there is an IP issue. Here are some things to try:
  • If you haven't already done so, restart your computer
  • In Network connections - delete the Sprint connection under Dial Up Connections & restart pc
  • Right click on Local Area Connection and click properties - click TCP/IP and click properties - make sure Obtain an IP Address Automatically is selected
  • If your cable modem came with an installation CD - try reinstalling
Hopefully one of these will get you back on the Internet.

Routers


You can get a regular wireless G broadband router (WRT54G) But you must also check if your sprint modem has an ethernet port so that you will be able to connect the router to it.
