So I've got this router that I want to hook up. Now ... as far as I know, this stuff SHOULD pretty much be plug-and-play. In the past, if I recall, setting up routers has been about as difficult as getting the wires organized and then powering up in the right order. But now I can't get it, and I've tried two different routers, so I think it's my fault that it isn't working. I've got some strange modem that came from the ISP. It's not a name-brand unit, I'm pretty sure, but it works absolutely fine without a router as far as I can tell so there's no complaints that I have with it. I can even plug into it on the fly, so to speak, and it'll recognize the connection (rather than making me restart every time I plug something new in). My router is a Linksys wireless unit -- of course I'm trying to plug in hard-wired -- "instant wireless series." I got these routers from the g/f's parents, who have a business and thus have some spare routers laying around ... so what I don't have is a CD for the router. Should I need one though? Like I said, I really thought this would just be a plug in and go kinda deal. But it hasn't been. So... in other words... for some reason I'm lost. Can anyone give me a brief EDU on how to go from this: PC -> modem to this: PC -> router -> modem ...and actually be able to, yanno, get online and whatnot? Thanks for your help.
