At present, I have the following setup:
Cable comes into the modem and goes to the router. The router then feeds my Vonage phone system and all my computers. The only computer that connects wireless is my wife's laptop, everything else is hard wired.
99% of the time this setup works flawlessly, but there are times I want to hook my main pc directly to the modem (for troubleshooting). It will not connect to internet that way. I suspect the reason is that when I installed Win 7 Pro I told it that it would connect to my local network.
There has to a way to connect that one pc directly to the modem. This where I need the help.
Thanks for any help.
