Thanks for the quick reply.
As I am totally new to this, please allow me to ask some follow up questions.
I have since swapped the netgear router for a cisco valet. When I go into the router settings I see a section for internet setup. If I am understanding correctly I am to change that from a DHCP to a static IP of 192.168.1.1 (also the device homepage). I am then to enter subnet mask, default gateway and DNS values, all of which I am unsure of.
I then change the router IP to match my LAN address of 192.168.0.1.
I have also gone under my dial up devices and shared my USB modem to my LAN, not wireless network. Correct?
Once again please excuse my ignorance and accept my thanks, as this is my first attempt at networking.
