Ok, first of all, I'm not a networking genius by a long stretch so please bear with my ignorance.
My issues is this:
I needed a router that would work with an Alltel internet card to create wifi at home. I was told by a sales rep in Radio Shack that I could use a linksys router for this and that all I need to do was tell my desktop to allow internet sharing, which I've done, and connect the router to my desktop via ethernet cable and the router would use the internet from that computer for my wifi. This has NOT worked. My laptop/kindle are recognizing the router but neither will connect to the internet. I don't know if the desktop was supposed to recognize the router when I connected it but it didn't.
Any help with this would be greatly appreciated!!!
