I am trying to add a wireless router to my current lan. I have one computer connected directly to the internet via a usb cable modem. This and another computer are then connected to a switch allowing the other computer to access the internet. I have a netgear WGR614 wireless router which I want to add to the network to allow wireless devices to connect to the internet, nameley a PS3 and a laptop. However, the instructions for the netgear wireless router are only for adding it to a computer that has an ethernet cable modem connection. I had assumed it would be a case of swapping the switch for the router but this does not work.
I would prefer not to change my cable modem usb connection to an ethernet one (although I have tried and failed) so any help on this would be very much appreciated.
