Re: what can i do with my old 2wire dsl modem?

I don't know if I'm doing something wrong but it doesn't resolve the IP (limited or no connectivity)

Sounds like the 2wire is setup right for the wifi link

The laptop's wired adapter has a mac address
The laptop's wireless adapter has a mac address

The cable modem may be configured to give a ip address to only one mac address

You may be able to reboot the cable modem and it will give a ip address to a device with a different mac address
