So I am trying to hook up a laptop and some video game consoles up in my dorm room but I am having issues. My desktop is directly connected to whatever connection the university provides. Plugged into my desktop is a Linksys 10/100 Compact USB 2.0 network adapter, and the network adapter is connected to a Linksys Cable/DSL router with four port switch (model number BEFSR41). I then have my WII, my X-Box, my PS2, and my laptop hooked up to the router. My problem is that only my desktop (nothing hooked up to the router) can access the internet. Here are a few more things...

The network adapter is plugged into the WAN port of the router. I am currently running COMODO firewall pro. My Local Area Connection says connected, shared and my router connection says connected.

I had this same setup a year ago and it was working fine. However, when I tried to set everything up this year, it isn't working. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
