Best thing to do is contact ya ISP and they will give ya the settings to input in ya router. The reason this is needed is coz its a router and it needs to route the connection to ya pc. Im guessing ya other modem is connected by USB or somethin

Isn't there a setup wizard for netgear, that autodetects the connection? I'm pretty sure that's how I set mine up (with bellsouth), might have changed though they're no longer my current ISP.

find the ip settings on your PC that was connected directly to your modem. It will give you the information you are looking for. If it is set to automatically acquire an IP address, you have to setup your router to do the same.
