Ok, then we should make sure that you have all the cables and devices connected properly. Can you tell us the make and model of your router, the kind of high speed internet service you have, and the layout of your network? The general setup for a DSL connection is that a splitter is connected to the phone jack with a filter in one hole that goes to the phone and the other hole in the splitter goes into the DSL modem. Then, an ethernet cable goes from the modem to the WAN or Internet port on the router then all the computers connect to the LAN ports on the router. Lets confirm your setup first then we'll go to the next step.

Some cable ISPs will give you a second internet connection, which would allow your configuration to work. If available I would guess the cost will be at least $5 to $10 per month.

That would be a second IP address, I don't know any that will give you a second account for $5-10! :D
