Wireless router

Specs: Windows XP, pentium 4
I have a Netgear ce0560 wireless router and I am trying to hook it to my pc so I can use my ps3 wireless. I took the interenet connection from my modem and plugged it into the internet plug on the Netgear and then, using an orange network wire, I came from LAN1 into the back of my computer. My interenet connection to my pc is now gone. Do I need a driver for the router or am I hooking it up wrong? Any advice would be helpful.

You dont need a driver, there is no such thing as a router driver. It appears to be connected corerctly, however, you do need to configure the router. Did you do that?

No, this may be a stupid question but, how do you configure the router?

Did it come with a user manual? The most common way to configure these type devices is to open a browser and log into the router admin interface by entering it's default IP. With Linksys I believe it is
I have a Dlink and it uses

There is usually a default User Id and Password.

Your manual will give this information.

In some you need only set the WAN to autodetect and it will find the internet. In others you must manually input the necessary settings. It also depends on your ISP. Some will tie the internet connection to the specific MAC address of the PC to which it was connected. If that happens you need to clone that MAC in the router.

Unfortunately you will get little help from most ISPs

If you need to input manual settings you can obtain this information by re-connecting Modem direct to PC and in a Command Prompt window run the following
ipconfig /all

Write down or print out the results.
