First of all check if the power light is blinking or solid. if it's blinking reset your router.
When your computer is directly connected to the router try checking the IP address by clicking start>run> type cmd then ok. then type ipconfig then hit enter. IP address should be something like 192.168.1.100. not 169.254.xx.xx. if it's the latter reset your router. use a ball point pen or a paper clip. the reset button is a small hole at the back. If the IP address is like the first one i've mentioned. log-in to your router.
launch browser (internet explorer or firefox)
type http://192.168.1.1 or whatever your default gateway is. go to the status tab and check if you are getting a WAN or internet IP address. if not you will see a "release" and "renew" button. hit release then renew. if you're still not getting anything. do a power cycle. turn everything off. connect everything the way they are supposed to be connected. turn on modem first then router then computer.
If everything fails the last options is a firmware update on the router.
Hope this helps. =)
