A few days ago I had a cable modem installed for internet access. I want to connect it to a router (USR Model 8054) so I can access the internet from both a laptop(Win98) and a desktop(WinXP). If the cable modem is connected directly to the desktop, I can access the internet beautifully from the desktop, but the minute I connect the modem to the router's WAN port and the desktop to one of the LAN ports with Cat5 cables, the internet stops working and I get "Cannot find server or DNS error" for every web address I try. The LAN light stays green, but the WAN light flashes yellow. I haven't even tried connecting the laptop yet. I ran ipconfig and all the addresses looked OK. I rebooted the computer as well. It's probably one simple setting somewhere that I need to change, but I can't figure it out. Please help. I'm so frustrated.
