    My gf's parents have cox broadband and she wants to connect to it for free. She got a linksys router to share it, but I can network the computers together, but neither of them can access the internet. :wtc: I tried the router at my house (we have the same service exept i got my router before cox upgraded their service) and it works fine...

    Any one have/had this problem too?

    You probably just need to set the router up properly.

    I can ping the other computers on the network and the router but she still doesn't have internet. I tried cloning the MAC address of the cable modem but it didn't work, I am confused because it works at my house, but not hers.

    Are you two using the exact same modems too? Maybe she's got one of those modems that don't allow you to use routers.

    Unlpug your modem, let set for a couple mintues. Hook up your router to it. Turn on cable modem, turn on router.
