Whenever you plug a different device into a cable modem, i.e., switch pc's or switch pc for router. You MUST repower your cable modem. The cable modem remembers the last hardware address that was plugged into it and it will not recognize another hardware address until the cable modem is rebooted. Then power up your router, wait for it to get it's address from the modem and then power up your pc.

You sound like you're using Cable simply because you're able to unplug and replug the computer.
Unplug your cable modem for 30 seconds and plug back into the router and you're on your way!

First off, are you connected by dsl or cable or sattelite? If the answer is dsl we have to first put the modem into full bridge mode. The modem is probably got DHCP enabled and MAC filtering enabled. You can call your ISP for that answer but if that isn't reasonable then you can find the ip that the modem is giving you by: First make sure the modem is plugged directly into the pc and you have internet connection; Now click on "start" and choose "run" . When the dos shell prompt opens type "ipconfig" and press enter. The "default gateway" will probably be 192.168.1.254 or something close to that. Make note of the default gateway and open a web browser. Now type the default gateway number you got into the address field. It will ask you for a user name and password. most use "admin" for the user name and "password" for the password, If not you will have to call the ISP (Inernet service provider for these. Once inside the modems main page click on the "LAN settings" and uncheck or disable the DHCP. Also, turn off MAC filtering. Now press save. Wait for the modem to reboot and continue on. If you have cable you don't have to do this. Once that is done make sure to reset the router back to factory defaults, by pressing the reset button in the back of the router and holding it in for a full 30 secs ( Usualy it is a small hole that maybe a paper clip or the head of a pin can fit in.) Next power cycle the system. Turn off the modem router and pc and wait 30 secs. Now bring up the modem first and allow all the lights to stablize. Next bring up the router and let all the lights stablize. Finally, bring up the pc. Now run the wizard and thats all there is to it.

First try to confirm if you have internet connection directly thru your modem. if you dont have any connection the problem is with your modem. return it back to the isp then let them replace it. but if theres a connection try these solution that im suggesting.
try to do a power cycle..unplug the cable of your modem to the router then unplug the cable of your pc to the router.let it stand for 30 seconds then plug back the modem to the router's internet port then plug back the pc to the numbered ports... go to the run tab then type in cmd then you will see a black box type in ipconfig..if ull see a ip address pls try to ping it
ping 192.168.1.X if you will receive 4 replies your connected but if you ull received a ip add 169 try to reset your router. at the back panel of you router there is a reset button. get a pin or something then push the button for the reset. count at least 30seconds for restting. power up your computer then go to the command prompt. type in ipconfig then if your receive a valid ip address thats the time to check your other computers if its working properly then try to connect to the internet.
if still u cant connect the problem is with your isp or the problem is with your modem

I had this same problem.
The Routers address : 192.168.1.1 was conflicting with my modems address : 192.168.1.254 why , i have no clue. Yet , i changed the routers address to 10.10.10.1 and everything came out ok and i can now connect to the internet. Also ... when it wouldnt work with my modem in the routers "Internet port" i just plugged the modem into one of the othet ports and evreything worked good. BUT.. then the routers acts as a HUB not a router..

This is because your router is setting your pc at a different IP address than your original modem. Make sure router is set to enable DHCP which gives out an automatic ip address and check your wireless card and network cards are set to obtain ip address automatically. It may take a few re-starts to get on the internet as your systems will need to clear their previous DNS settings. Also i assume you have set up the home network wizard (XP) as you are now using a router and not a direct modem. Also try Start>Run, then type ipconfig /flushdns then press enter. Although my advice would be to return your router back to the shop and claim that you are no expert and that you have been advised that a Wireless Modem/Router is more suitable than a seperate modem and seperate router.

You didn't specify if you're using DSL or cable.
I've run into this dozens of times. With DSL, keep in mind the software on the PC is what "dials out" to the ISP with your name / password, and you MUST set the name and password in the router. Otherwise, ONLY the computer that has the software installed (verizon, etc) will be able to connect.
If you're using a cable connection, you don't have to do this, however, most newer Linksys routers come with a 'setup' disk, which MUST be used regardless of connection type.
