my house has 2 PCs.. one downstairs and one upstairs... downstairs we run on cable broadband.... the broadband comes in through the wall,, runs into the cable modem... from there it runs to the router and my dads PC, and from the router i can access the net...

however, my dad is turning the modem off at stupid times... i wondered if there is a way to by-pass the cable modem that he is turning off and running the internet directly fro mthe wall into the router.. so when he turns modem off im still plugged into the wall... the connection from wall to modem is specialised and wont fit into my router... any help or advice?

motorola surfboard modem and linksys router.. >.< thanks

Sorry Animala, but I think you're out of luck. You have to have a cable modem of some kind between your computer and the cable coming out of the wall. Even if you could find some kind of crazy physical adapter to screw onto the end, it won't work plugged directly into your computer.

Actually there is a "crazy physical adapter" to "translate" from coax to ethernet. It's called a cable modem. :)

Review the forum rules and read a few threads, especially the Closed ones, and you'll realize that we don't help getting around parental restrictions.
