At my mom's store she has a wireless gateway for her internet but for some reason I can't connect. I enter the password, and it trys to connect, but doesn't. It's a actiontec DSL modem with a built in wireless gateway. It's a cheap rental modem from Quest, that's IMO outdated. Just woundering how I'd get this thing to connect.

Are you trying to connect via wireless or using the ethernet port of the wireless router?
