hi there i have a desktop computer working with ubuntu 8.04 and connected with an adsl ethernet modem (brand huawei smartax mt880) by rj45.. and it's working fine, now.. i've bought a Dell Inspiron 1525 laptop which is working with Windows Ue V7 sp2 and now i've bought a Tenda Wireless n Broadband Router W307R.. now, if i connect only the modem internet works just fine (used ppoe config to make it work) but when i add the router, it sends signal and the laptop gets it but when the router is on none of them (the pc or the laptop) seems to have any connection, so.. what am i doing wrong? do i have to do some kind of configuration or anything to make the router send signal? i don't know where to start. if someone could help me it would be great. thank you very much!!!!

The router should have come with some documentation with it. That's the best place to start.
Normally there is a local web - http: or something like that. That's where you configure the router.
