Connection Troubles

    I've been troubled by this connection issue for about a week now. I can't seem to figure out what to do from here so I thought I may throw this out to those who know a lot more then I.

    My internet comes in through a cable modem in a room away from my pc where it is routed with a linksys 802.11b wireless router. I can access the internet at this pc just fine through that. I recently bought a media player to display movies recorded on my hard drive on my tv. It is connected to a linksys wga54g adapter. I then have a linksys WRT54G router off of my pc for the gaming adapter to get the content to display. (I think it would look like this)

    Internet -> cable modem -> 802.11b router -> my pc -> WRT54G -> wga54g -> mediamvp

    This is where the issue starts. I've found that with both running normally I can watch the videos on the TV but can't access the internet from downstairs. However, if I disable my hardwired nic card, or just turn off tcp/ip on the wired connection to my WRT54G then I can get on the internet just fine, but then can't watch the videos. Is there a solution so that I can do both at the same time.?

    Thanks for any help all.

    You've got kind of a strange configuration but the following should resolve your problem.

    From the "Network Connections" window click on the Advanced menu and choose "Advanced Settings..."

    Make sure your wireless nic is at the top of the Connections list.

    If that doesn't work there's several other ways to do handle your problem. (This was simply the least involved method I could think of.)

    Good luck!
