or is your modem hooked directly to your PC? If it is, does your PC have more than one NIC? If it does, what is the 2nd NIC hooked too.
Right off the top of my head i'd check the IP settings. If you have the net hooked directly to your pc and not to a router, that would complicate things. Also, i've never messed with roadrunner so i wouldn't know how their software works. Does it create a "RR" network connection, is it bridged, or is the software merely running in the backround the whole time.
The more details you provide, the more help you'll get.
ok sorry about not especifying...anyways my cable modem is hooked up to the pc, which has only one NIC. could that be the problem? do i have to install another card to have a different connection? what do you mean by "bridged"? i saw the option to do that to the connection, but i dont know what it does.
