I have cable internet, hardwired, the modem is running through a 4 port router. I want to connect a wireless Cisco Valet router so I can use my laptop wirelessly (sp). When I had DSL, I just connected the Valet to the router with a ethernet cable and had no problems. I connect to the router now which is being supplied by the cable modem and I cannot get the wireless to work through there.

What am I missing or is this not possible?
