I just got cable internet with a cable modem. The guy hooked it up with the ethernet cord, and it works fine, but when I try to use USB with it, it doesn't connect to the internet.
I've gone through several times trying to unplug, wait 10 secs, replug; reset IP address; reset network; etc.. to no avail, but the second I plug my Ethernet cord back in, it connects...
Also, I don't think it's a bad hookup or anything because Windows notifies me that a "jack has been plugged in".
Anyway, I'd really like to do this so I can have my Ethernet cord run from my desktop to my laptop or straight from my cable modem to my laptop (if possible).
Any help or direction would be greatly appreciated. :)
