I have a d-link router and usb connected to my pc. Although the system says I am connected, the Internet consistently says "not available". However, if I put a laptop on the same network, the laptop can access the Internet but the desktop system cannot.

plug the usb modem into usb slot of pc as normal. Bridge the connection between the internet connection and ethernet router connection in network page. Set router to ip add etc and it should share net access while pc is turned on atleast.
I have had exactly the same problem, and although I didn't suspect it, all my troubleshooting including reinstalling of drivers, trying a different USB port and changing the channel on the router failed to cure the problem, pointing to a hardware issue. Indeed, a new Wifi USB dongle proved to be the full solution. I confirmed my old dongle was faulty by plugging it into another PC. Original problem was transferred to new location, confirming donglewas bad.
Unplug the plug (from phoneline) on back of USB modem, plug into Zoom router. Plug one end of an ethernet cable into router and one end into your PC. Type http://10.0.0.2 into a web browser (eg. Firefox or Internet explorer) username/password is admin/zoomadsl go to basic setup and input your ISP username and password (the one given to you by your internet provider) under PPP. Click configure my connection. Save changes and then write to flash (both buttons on bottom of page)
for dial up simply a modem .... on laptops if you do not have a builtin modem you can purchase a pc-card modem that goes into your pcmcia slot ... for highspeed either a ethernet (same option as modem) but almost all modern laptops have a built in ethernet ... or usb ... also I highly recommend a router if you are going highspeed ... even if you only have one computer ... a router will protect your system because it provides a NAT firewall. If you go with a router make sure to set up the internet connection on the router do not tunnel through the router with a PPPoE connection
