I finally was able to get internet directly to my Macbook from the router that the internet service provider sent. I then hooked their ethernet cable up to the linksys wireless router and then an ethernet cable from it to my macbook. I am still getting internet. When I go to the Basic Setup page that linksys provides and try to save my changes, I get an error that says safari can't open page, unexpectedly dropped from server. I think I am entering everything ok. I guess I need some guidance as what to do, what numbers to put into Network under System Preferences, and things like that. Thanks.
