Ok I have enabled the modem to act as router and disabled dhcp on the netgear router. In the netgear router I also disbled the firewall and disabled the windows firewall on the pc.

The desktop shows as connected to the modem/router but the MAC address is all f's and tne connection is inactive. / DESKTOP ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff InActive Ethernet / laptop 00:0f:b5:fe:15:c9 Active Ethernet
