More details would be helpful.
Is your internet cable, dsl (telephone) or something else?
What is the make and model of your router?
Are you trying to connect wired or wireless?
What operating system are you using.

Assuming that this is a wired router with DHCP turned on and your network adapter is configured to obtain IP and DNS addresses automatically. Turn off or unplug everything. Connect the cat5 cable from the cable or dsl modem to the WAN or INTERNET port on the router. Connect a cat5 cable from any of the other ports to you computer. Now turn the cable/dsl modem on and wait 60 secs, then turn the router on and wait 60 seconds, finally turn your computer on.

BASIC TROUBLESHOOTING (assumes XP with at least SP2)
Open a Command window - START - RUN and type in cmd, click OK
A Black windows with white text opens.
type "ipconfig /all" without the quotes and press enter
this should display your ip address, the default gateway and dns servers
type ping followed by your default gateway address example: ping 192.168.0.1
if you get a reply this means that he communication between your computer and the router is ok
next ping 74.125.19.147
This is the ip address for google, if you get a reply you do have access to the internet
try your browser, if it shows page cannot be displayed, enter this in the address bar -
http:\74.125.19.147
If you see a google page open up it means you have a dns problem, go back to the command window and type "ipconfig /flushdns"
If you cannot even ping your gateway,open the command windows and type "netsh winsock reset catalog" then reboot

More details in your questions means more specific answers :)

Turn the cable-modem off.
Turn the router off.
Use an Ethernet cable to connect the cable-modem to the 'WAN' (or 'INTERNET') port on the router.
Use another Ethernet cable to connect one of the 'LAN' (or 'NETWORK') ports on the router to the network-port on your computer.

Turn the cable-modem on, and wait for its lamps to settle-down to a steady pattern.

On your computer, you should be able to access the Internet.

Also, look at the colour of the EIGHT wires at each of each Ethernet cable.
The order of the coloured wires should be IDENTICAL at both ends.

Hi there,

This issue is called no sync issue. Which means there is no synchronisation between your computer and the router.

Try Changing the Microfilter
swap the Leds of the cabel which is connected between the router and the computer.
Call your internet service provider if issue is not fixed.

Can this be used with a MAC?


Any router will work, TCP/IP is a network standard, definately double check the cables. Your DSL modem is usually 192.168.254.254. and the router is usually 192.168.1.1. Check your documentation for the default IP. Once you know it type it in to the broswer in your Mac. Before doing so connect with an ethernet cable, purchase a new one if necessary. Connect from the <--> labeled port on the mac, or ethernet port. These wires are not like phone lines, they have 8 wires instead of 4/6. The router usually has ports on the back labeled 1, 2, 3, 4, and WAN. the 1-4 ports are LAN and that is also labeled on there. Plug the mac into port 1 and any other computers in after you get internet. once the physical connection is recognized. Go to your browser in the mac and proceed. if you get a web based router configuration page your router is working, then make the WAN connection to the ethernet port on the back of the dsl mode. Be sure your cables are good. Also go to your control panel and make sure your internet is enabled in your network section.

How to work router


Router can't connect directly to internet by itself, you need to have a modem. Your router need to connect to your modem and the modem will connect to WAN.
