I'm trying to set up a home network with a new computer I bought. The compter has several USB ports and one Ethernet port along with the other normal connections a desktop has. I have a Paradyne 6381-A3 router provided by my ISP, it has a phone line in, phone line out, one USB port and one Ethernet port, I'm also using a Netgear WGR614 v7 wireless router to use with our two laptops we have in the household. I believe I should be going from the phone wall jack to my modem, from the modem to my computer via the USB port and from my computers Ethernet port to my wireless router? The problem I'm running into is that Vista will not detect the Paradyne or allow me to install the drivers from the Paradyne disk. I even found what claimed to be Vista compatable drivers for that modem online and still can not get my desktop to connect to the modem using the USB. Any Help would be great. Thanks!

Sounds like you have it connected incorrectly...

Modem will have your phone line from the wall jack plugged in.
Modem's ethernet port will go to the WAN port on your Router

Once that is established, plug your computer's Ethernet port to the router, or connect via wireless.
