You should merely plug in your desktop/laptop/router into the DSL or Cable
modem, setup your OS network application for DHCP, plug your CAT5 cable or
USB cable into the modem and be good to go.  I do this regularly when in
San Antonio using friends att.net DSL and TimeWarner Road Runner.
If you still have trouble try another Live Linux version.  HTH Lou
