My landlords run a cable from the upstairs for comcast internet. I've tried to see their set up, but just not happening.
We had a d link router and worked fine with DSL, when we switch over to comcast we would get intermittent or no connectivilty. it seems to happen at predictable times. Once or twice we conntected directly to computer/tv and worked better with once not working. We got a new Netgear wirless router and again intermittent issues, but works great directly plugged in. the comacast modem was replaced.
Any ideas?

What is happening is they have a router and you are trying to connect a router to it. I would just use a switch instead unless you need wireless too.

The other option is to try this.
http://kb.netgear.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/1080

This example assumes that another router is the main router on your network providing Internet access for your computers. It also assumes that another device is your network's DHCP server that's usually the other router or a process on a local server. These instructions work for all NETGEAR wireless routers.


Good Luck

If you mean like a Y cable, then no. It has to have electronics in it. Why not configure your router or get a switch?
