    i can get hooked to the internet or is there something
    else i can use that will get me hooked up :confused:

    just turn off DHCP in the wireless router, and use a normal ethernet cable to connect the wifi router's 1-4 ports (not the wan or internet port) to one of the 1-4 ports on the wired router. you may need to power cycle your broadband modem and the wired router as well, but that's not a big deal.
