iCAT4849 is on a distinguished road

iCAT4849 is offline

I have recently acquired a Mac Pro (2006) and would like to run it off of my existing internet connection along with my iBook/Linksys wireless router.

I will be running a cable into my kitchen, and am hoping to run that cable into the modem,router AND Mac Pro. I was assuming that I could hook the cable into the modem, modem to router AND also to the back of the Pro.

Will i need to get another ethernet cord? or do i run an ethernet cord from the router to the pro?

a little confused on the best way to do this and make everything work from one area - while still being able to have my laptop around the house.

help would be much appreciated
