Hi, I need help. I was given a cisco wireless bridge. I need it to connect my desktop to the internet. I configured the bridge to my internet without an issue, but when I connect the ethernet cable to my desktop it will not connect to the internet still.

So the computer with which you configured the bridge and verified it was connected to the internet, is not the same as this computer? In most cases, if the bridge works at all, it will work w/ anything. The bridge is essentially transparent to the device that's using it. So it seems very odd it would work w/ computer X but not Y (assuming they are similarly configured).

What's the model # of this bridge?

It is a wet610n. I set it up hooked up with the modem as the disk told me to do. Then it says to hook up to the device you want to make wireless and I did but my desktop still doesn't work.

So you verified during setup that the bridge is connected to the wireless AP of the router? Are you sure the desktop ethernet connection is enabled? And is using DHCP?

Yes, the router is connected to the wireless and the ethernet connection is enabled, sorry but not sure about DHCP?
