    I have the new router from linksys and am having troubles getting my internet networked too all my computers. I have tried to share my connection, but it still does not work for some reason. On the back of the router it has a internet port, but its not USB like my receiver for internet is. Is there some type of crossover I can get, like one end is USB and the other end is Networked?

    Thanks

    It sounds like you have a cable modem or DSL modem with only a USB connection and no Etherent connection. Then that router won't work. You need to get a modem with an Ethernet connection. If you're renting the modem, tell them to swap it out because USB sucks.

    if you own the modem then you can still use it, but i would reccomend trading it for an ethernet modem if you can.
