    Ok well I got a router today, got the cables etc and the guys at the shop told me it would be easy. Connected the rotuer to the cable modem, the router to the PC, I put the CD in to install the router, but it says it cant find a router! I assure u it is connected, but it wnt find it. I'm talking to u now through a USB connection to my cable modem, and even that was difficult to get working but thats not the problem.

    My problem is I need to connect this PC and another to the router, then to the cable modem, and out to the internet. But the PC cant see the rotuer, whyyyy. please help. :confused:

    I'd start by checking the connections, and try a new cable if you have one. Do you have link lights on both ends?

    I assume you are connecting the cable modem to the WAN port, and your PC to one of the LAN ports, right?
