Dear Eberbard,  

The router does not seem to be working.  To write you, I had to reconnect the 
Ethernet cable to the modem to write this.  I connected as you said.  I 
connected the cable from the router to the modem in the first slot above the 

When I do the same thing with the broken computer, it still does not connect 
to the Internet.  By that I mean, when the modem is directly connected to the 
broken computer.

I don't really understand this, because I expected the laptop to retain 
connection when connected like you asked.  The last time that I had the laptop 
working and both the laptop and another computer were connected to the router 
at the same time, both computer's worked, at least both connected to the 
Internet and could send emails.  That is the reason my surprise.  I haven't 
made any changes that I remember since that time.

Excuse my not getting back sooner, I took a fall and am not well yet.
