Being a total numpty here but can someone help me get it up and running ie configured correctly because from what I can see it seems as though NTL has got my apple mac G4 mac address linked with the cable modem and whenever I connect my linksys router to it my power book picks up the linksys wireless signal but it does not connect to the internet ( I am guessing I am missing out some configuration info or something here )

Thanks

Did you have the Mac connected to the cable modem?
If so, turn OFF the cable modem. Then connect the router and power the modem back up again.
Check in the properties of the router to see if it has got an IP address from NTL.

What I ended up doing was connecting my power book to the router after resetting the router and then in the router config I made it clone the mac address or my power books in built ethernet and then I swapped over to wireless after my router had cloned the mac address of my ethernet from my power book so that the cable modem thinks that my router is my power books ethernet connection and it works fine but I am stuck on trying to apply encryption because there are different types of encryption and I am not sure which one to use and also what steps to take to apply it because I tried it 2 times and as soon as I enable it, it loses wireless connectivity.

The one thing I did do however was to stop it from broadcasting the ssid and I gave it a different ssid.
