It worked fine with the laptop, but I would like you to be aware that I haven't 
been using it for other than a method of getting two computers on the Internet 
without have to change cables.  It just acts as a hub.  I think that is the 
correct term.

When connected to the problem computer the computer does not recognize either 
of them properly.  Unless they have changed, even the modem direct connected 
will not connect with the browser or email any more.

And yes, my laptop is connected directly to the ISP, on 100% of the time.

And thanks BTW.
