    Ref. Help switching from dialup to cable

    Thanks to everyone who responded to my original inquiry. Follow-up as
    follows:

    First, I was/am unable to use the rj-45 motherboard connections. No idea
    why???

    Bought the Motorola cable modem and a linksys Ethernet router. (Was willing
    to go to expense of cables).
    Nothing worked at first, so I tried the USB connection which came with the
    router. It worked, so I knew I was good with Comcast.

    Finally found an old Ethernet LAN board (from another life??) and installed
    in pc. Hey, it worked great. Went on and connected thru the router. (Had
    to go thru the setup sequence several times with the router before it
    recognized the internet connection??) Still worked, so went out and got
    another Ethernet LAN board for the second pc.

    Cabled it to the router and we had simultaneous connection to internet.

    All that remains is the laptop. From what I find using Google, I will need
    a RJ-45 Ethernet 10/100 USB 2.0 LAN adaptor for it.

    Thanks again,
    Ace

    That's strange - maybe some config setting needed tweaking ?

    What models ? Did you go wireless on the router for your laptop ?
