    Good Evening All,

    Today, I purchased a wireless router for my parents house. I hooked up everything properly (I know this because I am currently using wireless internet through my laptop and iPod touch), but now I CANNOT get online through the desktop that my parents have always used.

    In the past, they utilized a USB connection from the back of the modem to the back of their computer for internet. Now, I have an ethernet cable hooked from the back of the new router to the back of the computer.

    They are using Windows XP, and Internet Explorer 7. I have a feeling that I will need to go into the network and internet settings window to change settings (IP addresses?) but I have no idea what to change or what to change it to.

    I appreciate your time in reading this thread, and hope to hear from you all soon! Thanks so much!

    have you uninstalled all of the USB modem software and deleted old connection for it on the Connections tab of Internet Options'?
    also check that the LAN connection is enabled in 'Network Connections'
