    i bought a netgear wgr614 dsl cable router and have connected it to mynow wireless modem and pc. however when i get to the activation part of the installation it says no connection was detected. ive connected the modem with a usb to the computer and an ethernet to the router. the modem has ethernet and usb ports on the back.

    you have it wired up wrong. router connects pc to modem so a cable goes from modem to wan port of router then a netcable from router port to pc net port.

    its connected like this... modem to router and router to pc. the modem is connected to the router with an ethernet cable and an ethernet cable to the pc from the router. the usb is connected to the computer from the modem but this is only because i do not get an internet connection without it. when i try plugging in the ethernet alone ( both with and without the router) i keep getting errors saying binded adapters not found.
