I've just purchased a Linksys Asdl2 Modem to act as my ethernet connection to feed into my (also new) Netgear 108mps wireless firewall router.
I thought the setting up of a wireless network would be tricky but didn't envisage getting stuck on the installation of my ethernet modem.
I've connected it, and the bloody thing doesn't appear in device manager. My ethernet card is working fine (detected by XP) the right lights appear to be on the modem (ethernet/power/dsl) but no pick up in device manager.
The instructions are a bit crap as it assumes the modem will pick-up automatically.
I can't even begin to set the network up until this problem is solved!! Any ideas????
