Unless I'm being really dense, I'm not surprised they don't communicate;
Can you elaborate on exactly how they are connected?
PC ---------> ADSL modem -----> internet
Laptop ------->Router------> ?
My point being how would they communicate?
I suspect what you need is:
PC -----------> Router------>ADSL modem
I accept that I may have totally misunderstood ;) Is the ADSL modem
also a router? In which case it may be in it's configuration.
