    How do I connect another computer to the internet? I want my laptop to browse the web but when I disconnect the desktop and hook up the laptop, it won't pick up. Is there any way to get over that? Thanks in advance.

    going to need a router, Road Runner probably has arp cache still showing the mac of the desktop. easiest way around this is get a router and run to both.

    it will work if you power-cycle the modem. It holds the mac address and doesn't reset until a power-cycle.
