Specs: Windows Vista
I have Embarg, which comes with a router called 2wire and I also have a netgear router. I have 2 desktop computers and 1 laptop. The one lap and 1 desk work off the same router, but i cannot get the other desk to work with the netgear. how do i get the other one to network?

I would suggest easiest router which would be to take the netgear out of the loop and have all computers connect either wired or wirelessly to the Embarq.

Assume that I already did an Internet search.

The one that wont work is very old, but has an ethernet card. The desktop that works is hooked up to the embarq router, as the laptop also. Not sure how to add the first computer and get it to work, thats why I bought the secong router. So how do I get the other desktop to have access?

So now this has become a problem where you can't get Internet access from any of the 4 ports on the Embarq router/modem? If that is the case, I would contact Embarq technical support as you may have a faulty router/modem.

If that is not the case, please be more specific because that what it sounds like you are trying to relate.

Assume that I already did an Internet search.

I have internet assess on a desktop and a lap top on embarq. The other desktop is in anotherpart of the house, therefore, I can't plug it into the embarq port.

use a crossover cable from embarq lan port to router LAN [not wan] port.

Follow this diagram to turn your netgear into a wireless access point.
