    Hi and thanks for reading my post.

    I'm a first time "poster" to this forum so please bear with me. :)

    I recently changed internet service provider to AT&T.

    I have two computers that I would like to hook up to this service.

    The main computer that is ALREADY hooked up to the internet is a Sony Vaio.

    It is using a black Westell Modem model C90 for internet connection.

    The router I chose is a Netgear wireless-g router.

    I also purchased a Netgear wireless adapter WG111v3.

    Computer number two is a MAC (latest version).

    My Mac is telling me that everything is connected EXCEPT the internet service.

    I have an Ethernet and Adapter connection from the router to computer number two.

    Computer one is hooked up via USB to modem.

    If anyone needs more information, please let me know.

    I am not very familiar with MACs as this is my first so I may have to turn something off or on, I just don't know at this point but if someone could help to get me online. I would be very grateful. (y)(y)(y)(y)

    Oh yeah, and I could NOT access my (adapter disk) .exe file on my mac because it said that the .exe file couldn't be read in DOS mode. How can I open the .exe file on my Mac?

    Thank you all.

    Your modem has a USB port and an ethernet port? You cannot use both at the same time unless you have contracted for multiple public IP addresses. Disconnect the USB, unplug the modem for 30 seconds, connect the modem to the router's WAN (Internet, Modem) port and see how things work.

    Thanks for your reply. I've tried the above to no avail.

    What Mac is it?

    Why do you have both ethernet and wireless adaptor connected to the Mac?
