    Yeah, im kinda familiar with BlooChoo with my previous problems, but doesnt matter who responds to the post. I just need someone to help me. Anyways, i have a question. Right now I have a computer and a laptop (no one uses it). They both have internet including wireless for the laptop. But my computer also runs or shares the wireless. Which means if I unplug the wireless connection, my computer will have no connection. So how can I change this so that my computer runs normally on a cable modem? (Also if I unplug the modem, connection also stops. I have a cable connection from my wireless into the modem. I thought if I unplug this i can change it, but no..)

    Please respond A.S.A.P!!

    Thanks

    Sorry, but your post made little sense to me. I think that maybe you want to connect a computer directly to your modem and now there is a wireless router connected to the modem. On the remote chance that I guessed right, you need to unplug the modem, disconnect the router, connect the computer, wait at least 15 seconds after you unplugged the modem, plug in the modem, boot the computer.

    sorry to ask, but what do you mean by "connect the computer"? The steps i did was unplug the cable from my modem running from the wireless connection, then i restarted my comp, and nothing happened..

    sorry, but im a bit of a comp noob :eek:

    If the cable that you unplugged from from the router is still plugged into your pc,the other end of that cable should be plugged into the modem.You might want to power down the modem and pc when you do this
