Router Problem :(

    I'm using a Linksys 4 port cable/DSL router. My problem is that when I'm plugged in through the router to my ADSL modem, I can't access the internet. However, I can access other computers on my network (finally, finally got that to work ). If I plug straight from my computer to the modem the internet works fine.

    The problem is that I want to be able to have both computers plugged into the router and online at the same time. It was working fine before, it just stopped randomly for no apparent reason. No config or hardware changes.

    If anyone has any suggestions, they'd be much appreciated. Thanks

    What cables are being used? - Are they standard Cat-5 or Cat-5 crossed?

    You need to access the router's configuration page, use PPPoE as your connection type, enter your username and password from your ISP (Interent Service Provider).
