    Thanks Philo. The modem is OK. The connection is through ethernet and the eithernet driver is installed OK.

    Well, thanks for all the suggestions. I feel like a knucklehead now.... The whole problem was I was misspelling the name of the network on one of the computers. Everything else connected automatically. Now that this has been corrected, all is working fine. Even was able to network a printer for the first time.

    Thanks again for the support and ideas, and enjoy the chuckling! LOL!!
