Wireless routers and my current internet connection... Help?!?

I dont really know how to explain it, but my internet connection is through my cable/satellite company. We have one central box that I guess is the "receiver"... and a cable that plugs into my computer.

My question is... I want to set up a D-Link WBR-1310 wireless router... I don't know how to do this with the absence of the external modem. Can you help me?

  • That one box for the cable/receiver IS your external modem, love. :]

    If you look at the back of the box - it'll have another port - just follow the directions of the wizard, using that box. Think of it as the external modem.....which it is.

    Am I confusing? >_>

    If you have any questions, just message me.
    I've done so many wireless network set-ups, I can do it in my sleep.

  • I might mention that the receiver is also for the TVs (not just the computer)

  • I have no idea, i'm having issues with hooking my wireless router up to work with my laptop and desktop at the same time. I CANT figure it out!

    I think most companies are pretty helpful with walking you through hooking things up if you call them. Or even try their website and see if they have instructions there?

  • the only "help" they have is the set up wizard and it only talks about the external modems... I think I may have to wait until tomorrow and try to get in touch with the techs from the cable company... thing is it's not MINE... its my parents and I work FT so its hard to get over here... and I have to internet at my house... *sigh*.
