Well, if you computer connects to the cable modem through usb, that will be a problem for you network. You need an ethernet cable that runs from your cable modem to the "internet" port on your linksys router. Then an additional Ethernet cable to each computer on the network. All of your computers must have "network interface cards" (a port that looks like a phone jack, but bigger). Once you have all the supplies you need it should be very easy with the linksys provided software.

I have one computer hooked to cable (Comcast) with no problems. But when I try to network two computers together neither one will connect; each one will connect when by itself - one to cable, one to DSL.
All the hardware is reported to be working properly, and I have tried setting up a network, using Windows XP on these first 2 computers (the third one uses Windows 9.
I have an installation cd that the cable guy left but the menu on it says nothing about linking computers, just installing drivers and stuff like that. I also have a usb cable that came with the cd. And I have a Linksys router.
So my question is this: how the heck do I get three computers networked and if I need to use the usb cable how do I hook up the third computer when the router has no usb port?
