Thanks in advance. Someone that knows what they are doing (unlike me) wouldn't be having this problem. Bought a new laptop and wireless router last night. I am trying to get it hooked up to my existing cable connection. I think my main problem is that the new computer is not "recognized" or "hooked up" to my existing ISP. The old laptop works fine and that is how I am typing this. When they came out and hooked us up years ago, the tech guy typed in something into the computer when he hooked the cable internet box to the old laptop. So in short, I have a solid connection coming into the house. What I want to do is get the new laptop up and running with a wired connection and then I can probably figure out the wireless with the included disc that came with it. So how do I go about getting the ISP "codes" into the new system? Again, thanks in advance.
