    Laptop won't hookup to cable high-speed through main computer
    Okay, I give. I've tried everything and I still can't hookup to the internet. I need help.
    I have a cable modem & D-Link router on main computer. My work computer works fine in the dining room. I just picked up a used laptop for personal use and it won't work.
    I'm not real computer savvy so need very specific instructions.
