And the best part is, I'm not computer stupid!

So I won't be a hassle, I'm just that desperate to get this thing working I'm willing to pay.

Here's the lowdown:

I wish to have a permanently working internet connection on my laptop, and if possible, share files / LAN with my main computer (for gaming, music etc).

Main Computer
Connected to the internet (currently working) through a USB port Speedstream USB ADSL Modem, which has a phone line connected into the wall, and a spare ethernet spot.

New Laptop

Telstra Bigpond ADSL 512/256
So this is a little hard to explain. As mentioned above, my main computer is connected to a Speedstream USB Modem via a USB port in the back. In said modem is a phone line to the wall, an AC adapter for power obviously, and an ethernet cable. The ethernet cable runs up through my roof and down into my living area and into my...
DLink Dir-300 Wireless Router.

Where I've gotten so far
I've managed to get the laptop to connect perfectly with a wireless 54MBp/s "Excellent" connection to the router wherever I am in the house, however I have no internet or email. I'm happy to log in to and restore factory defaults if you wish to start all over again, too.

Price will be negotiated preferably after I'm setup. I'm not asking for it to be overly cheap either, if you get it working and it's worked for like a day without hassles, I'll pay well!

However I do ask that if something does go wrong in the near future that I have access to a little ongoing support...but that's up to you.

So who's in!?

If you want to share files, both machines have to be connected through the router. At least that's easy way to do it. At the moment you have the desktop directly connected to the modem. You want both PCs to have an internal IP address.

You can't be connected via adsl usb and router wireless. Nothing anyone can do will make that work. You have to have both connected to the router. Otherwise the usb connection is stealing the ip address the router needs to get on the internet. Connect yourself correctly and you are done.

To use the internet you need to proxy the connection. The simple way is to use Analogx's free proxy application to share the internet.

PM me and I'll explain it further for free.

Topo is DSL line in home. DSL modem usb to desktop. Ethernet to (hub) switch/router then wireless to laptop.

proxy will have no effect. usb connection is taking the ip address so the connected router isn't getting a ip. Additonally what is connected to the usb adsl and that connected to the router can't communicate because they would be in different subnets with no routes between.

The correct setup is
internet<>modem<>router<> both laptop and pc cabled to routers lan ports.
