    Alright, after I reformatted, i god a driver for my com21 cable modem that let me connect with USB only. I need to have Ethernet connectivity so that our wireless internet-thingy can operate. Does anyone know what kind of driver I will need to install? Am I doing something wrong?

    Connect from where to where with USB only? What is the "wireless internet-thingy" you refer to, a router?

    I am connected through my usb cable right now. It goes from my cable modem to a usb port on my tower. The wireless internet thingy is a router, and I need to get a connection going to it through an ethernet cable. However, when i go to the properties of my computer and check out the hardware, there is a questionmark and a exclamation mark where it says ethernet. Also, I am on windows xp.

    The ethernet cable will go into the router. The router comes after the cable modem. If your cable modem allows it, you can keep the same connection you have now. If not, you will need to connect your PC through the router.

    How do you have the router hooked up right now?

    From the main jack, I have the ethernet cable hooked up directly from my modem. On the secondary slot I have a regular telephone wire hooking that up to my computer tower. You know, I know that it is set up right, it worked just fine before. I just need to know where I can get the appropriate drivers.

    Alright bro.......my bad. From your descriptions, it looked like you had it connected incorrectly.

    The drivers you need should be on your XP disk, or on the install disk from the modem.
