So I'm trying to set up the office in my dad's church for wireless internet so he can use his new iPad there. I've got the new router set up and it works with my laptop both with a cable and over wireless. The thing is that neither his old desktop or my laptop can connect to the new router using the cable that runs into his office.
I'm thinking that this is because the new router has gigabit ports and is failing to negotiate a connection over this old ethernet cable. I'm now looking into how to get the router ( a Netgear WNDR 3400) to downgrade the ports.
Am I on the right track or should I working a different angle?
 Well I have it working for now. I just attached the old router in between his computer and the new router.
