    Hi there...

    I have 1 PC and 1 Laptop both running wndows XP Professional.

    I have a USB DSL modem connected to the PC and my laptop is wireless
    enabled. Both have ethernet LAN ports.

    I have just boght a D-Link Wireless Router (DI-624+) which connect to modems
    through an etherent connection only. When I rang D-Link they said that I
    would have to enable Internet Connection Sharing (ICS) on my PC with the USB
    DSL modem attached, but did not offer any assistance as to how to set it up.

    MY PROBLEM: How do I get this configuration to work? Does the wireless
    router therefore connect to home PC via its WAN ethernet port (the one that
    would USUALLY connect to an etherent DLS modem) or does it connect to the
    home PC via one of the 4 LAN ethernet ports? (my guess is that it
    connects to through one of its 4 LAN ports)

    My wireless laptop has no issues connecting to the router, but how can it
    then get access to the shared Internet connection?

    I don't want to by a new modem just for this!

    please, any help?
