    Network problems after Comcast cable modem

    My network was an old d-Link router (WEP, 8.11b) hooked to a DSL modem and
    wired to my desktop. After Comcast unwired my router and hooked it to their
    cable modem (the Comcast modem is also connected to the phone line) they
    told me to plug in a USB wireless adapter on my desktop and I should be
    fine. So I got a d-Link N adapter and plugged it in but it doesn't see any
    networks, but my laptop can see my network and all our neighbors' networks.
    (the laptop can't connect to my address because I didn't include its MAC
    address on my router). I hooked my router back to my old DSL modem and
    desktop but it still won't connect. It says unidentified network. Any
    suggestions? Why doesn't my adapter work? And why doesn't my old DSL modem
    work the way it used to?

    Re: Network problems after Comcast cable modem

    I just got off the phone with AT&T and they said my DSL service is
    disconnected. Comcast said I would need to call them to disconnect it as
    they just disconnect the phone service. Well, that explains why I can't
    connect back to my DSL. So now I need to figure why my adapter won't work.
