Hello,
I have a wireless set up at home and recently had to replace my DSL modem (due to my cat knocking over my coffee cup and spilling coffee on my old modem) I have managed to connect to the internet directly through the modem, but want to connect wireless. How can I connect my new modem to my old wireless network? I tried hooking up to the router but got nothing. Am I missing something???

The problem might be that both the modem and the router are trying to use the same IP address. For example, they might both be on 192.168.1.1. If that is the case, then change the IP address of the router to something like 192.168.2.1, and leave the modem at 192.168.1.1.
