1) Are you sure you're connecting to YOUR wireless network? From my own house, I can access 5 different wi-fi networks, 3 of them unsecured. I've even logged into two of them, unintentionally.

2) Check all of your cabling connections that they are tight and
secured. This includes the cables from the wall to your modem,
between the router and modem, and from the router
to your PC. Ensure that your LEDs are not lit Red or not at all.

3) Ensure that you are using Ethernet cables and not telephone
cables between the router and PC. Ethernet
cables use a wider RJ-45 style plug using 8 wires where
telephone style plugs use the smaller RJ-11 style plug using 4 to
6 wires.

4) Ensure that your Ethernet adapter is enabled. Check the System
Tray at the bottom right of your display to see an icon that looks
like a monitor. You can click on this to see the status of
your Ethernet adapter. Also in Control Panel > Network and
Dial-Up Connections, you can examine the state of your Ethernet
adapter.

5) Firewalls. Your desktop firewall(s) may be blocking your internet access. Check them.

6) You may not be completely blocked (only web traffic - port 80 - blocked). Go to Start > Run and type CMD. At the DOS prompt, type ping 192.168.1.1 (should be the default IP address of your router). If you get a response, your PC is talking to the router. If you get "timed out", then they are not talking, for some reason. If successful, try pinging an external address, something like ping www.fixya.com, and see what happens.

Cannot connect to the internet


Make sure that your computer is able to go online through the modem. If your computer is not able to go online through the modem then you will need to call ISP first. If your computer is able to go online through the modem then you need to connect the computer to the router and the modem to the router. open the set up page of the router and change the settings of the router according to the ISP.

The modem light is off on my Motorola modem.


Ah, someone that actually makes use of the word "nor" I would first unplug the CAT-5 cable that goes from your modem into your router to check that it's not your router's fault. To make sure that every computer that is plugged into the router is on the network you should PING each computer to see if you can reach it.

Find out the IP of your computer by clicking Start then Run then type in CMD. Once your in CMD (Command Prompt) you should type in IPCONFIG. That command will give you a response with your IP Address in it. Take that IP and go to another computer in your network and use the PING command in CMD by typing PING 192.168.1.??? in CMD.

If your PINGing session is successful then it's a problem with your ISP (Internet Service Provider) and should be handled by contacting them and having the problem fixed because it's an issue at their end. If it's not it's a problem with your router and can be handled by having a specialist come to your home and to fix/set up your network or I could remotely control your computer to fix it.

It's your choice, but the specialist will cost and I won't.

Thanks,

If you connect the computer directly to the modem, does it work?
If that works then the modem is working.
Now connect the computer to the router and the modem to the router.

Router not working as well with D620 as with my older D610


If your router has the external antenna the signal will increase when you point the antenna in the direction where the computer is used the most. It always helps to locate the router in a central area and on the upper floors of a house because the broadcast signal falls like rain. Another trick to try is to change your broadcast channel in the router, the normal default is channel 6. Each channel broadcasts at a slightly different frequency. Hope this helps...Tennis123
