Two things. I have DSL. I have the cable hooked up into a modem. I have the modem hooked up to a router. The router can successfully connect, wirelessly, to a Win NT laptop. The router can also connect to a Mac through a cable. I have tried to hook up the laptop with a cable, but for some reason it isn't detected. Also, I recently tried to hook up a Win XP Home to the router through a cable but it won't work either. I read through the troubleshooters and have pinged the XP's IP address from the XP and the signal was returned successfully from the router but and the IP address responds almost instantly. Then I pinged the gateway and no response. I also pinged the NT laptop and again, no response from the laptop. The all the lights on the modem and router are all on. Also, the computer's internal modem says that everything is in order. In the LAN properties it even shows that my computer has sent many packages. I would like to know:
A.) Why will the wireless work on the laptop but the cable not.
B.) How can I get the router to send and receive from my XP.
