The router is fried so I'm connecting directly to the modem. Will have to disconnect laptop (that I'm using to chat with you) to see if the ethernet light on the modem comes on
Will do but will have to wait a few minutes as I'm on a conference call at the moment which is scheduled to end at 4pm Eastern
The ethernet light on the modem does not come on when connected to the desktop.
I'll be glad to rate you (and all excellent so far) but what if your solution turns out not to work for some other reason?
