Hey Folks, I'm way, way dumb when it comes to this computer stuff. Moreover, when I do get something working, I think it was just dumb luck, and not because I know what I'm doing. I'm having a hard time with my home network. Out here in the sticks, we have CenturyTel DSL internet service. It's slightly better than DialUp and the best thing available (and I've no interest in sattilite). CenturyTel set us up with a Westell C90-610014 modem. This modem has Ethernet and USB outlets. We also have a Netgear WPN824 Wireless Router. I have used this router/modem combo with good results before. This Router has wireless capabilities, plus four more LAN connections. We have two computers. I've a new MacBook that has Airport (wireless) capabilities, as well as an Ethernet connection. My wife uses an HP, with both a wireless capability and an Ethernet connection as well. Her machine is having problems with it's wireless (seperate issue), but works just fine by Ethernet. I have found that both machines communicate well with the router when using Ethernet. I can not figure out how to use the USB connection, and I believe it's a driver issue, but can not find a driver for it. I've also found that my MacBook will communicate with the router fine, both by wireless and by ethernet. The wife's HP will also communicate with the router by ethernet just fine. My problem lies in that I can't get my router to talk with my modem. My account is password protected, but I've entered in all the information correctly, and that same account information works when directly connected to the modem with the router out of the loop. Unfortunately, I'm just stupid, so I can't figure out how to get both machines on the net at the same time. Any ideas would be helpful. Even if I could find the driver to make the USB port work, and plug one machine in by USB and one by Ethernet, I'd be happy... but ultimately, I'd like to have the wireless router running. Thanks for any help!
