The cable modem should be connected to the WAN port of the router. Then the computers should be connected to any ports from 1-4 at the back of the router.
Once they are connected properly. Reset the router. Just hold the reset button for 10 seconds. Then turn off the modem, router and all computers.
Then you need to turn on the modem first, wait for the lights to become solid green, then turn on the router. Once the WAN light on the router is on, turn on the computers and check if there is internet connection.
If still no internet connection, contact your ISP. They might need to clone the mac address of router to their end.
Well the first thing to do is try to isolate the problem. Before we start make sure the 1st PC will give the same network cable unplugged error if it too is unplugged. Once that is done start by unplugging the network cables from the PCs and switch them. Does the problem stay with the 2nd PC or does it move to the 1st?
If it stays with the 2nd PC then the problem is with the PC network card or more likely its configuration. The network card should be configured exactly as the 1st one, probably to obtain the IP and DNS addresses automatically. If you need help with this let us know the operating system you are using.
If the problem moves to the 1st PC that indicates the problem is with the cable and/or the router. Now switch the cables at the router end, if the problem stays on the 1st PC then that network cable is your problem. It could be a ?cross-over cable or simply damaged. If it doesn?t move then the problem would be in your router. Either that router port is bad (try using another port) or the one port that works is configured uniquely. You?ll need to take a look at how your router ports are configured and look for the differences.
Let us know what you find and we?ll go from there.
