Thank you for the clarification, u need to perform the following steps: 1)donot use the cd for the setup.take the cd out from the computer 2)reset the router(if you look at the back of the linksys router you will see there is a small hole which contains the reset button,hold down the reset button while the router is on,once the time period of 30 sec is over turn off the router,turn it back on after 60 sec. 3)check the cables between your modem,computer and router. 4)the correct cables sequence should be following,there would be a cable going from you internet service provider modem to the back of the router(the post should be the one that is labelled internet or dsl) and there should be another ethernet(yellow/grey colored cable going from ports 1,2,3 and 4 )cable going to the back of the computer make sure the cables are plugged in properly 5)turn of the modem,router and computer,in a sequence that is given,modem----router----computer. 6)wait for 2 mins and then turn on modem wait for the light to be steady and then turn on the router wait for the lights to be steady and then at last turn the computer.

Your new ISP is DSL. the router was working before with the cable modem. The settings for the cable and DSL ISP are different. Now your computer is working when you connect it directly to the DSL modem. that means the modem is working. The DSL modem works on 2 different modes. You will need to check which mode is your modem working on and according to the settings of your modem you will need to set up the router.
To change the settings of the router, you will need to open the set up page of the router. Click Here for more information about the router set up.
Router setup If you are using the cd that comes with the router, that is the problem. You do not have to use the cd. Go to the control panel and un-install the program that the cd installed. then: Shutdown your PC. Unplug the power from the router and the cable modem. Wait 30 sec. then plug in the power to the cable modem, wait 30 sec. then plug the power to the router. Wait till you have "Internet" light then restart your PC. The PC should pick up an IP address and you should be able to get on-line. This is if you have a cable service provider. If you have DSL, the router needs to be configured with PPOe. If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it. Thanks, Joe
have you plugged everything in with the modem off and the router off?
have you tried unplugging the linksys for a sec then plug it back in?
also have you checked the pin connection on the plug on both the computer and the router?
what are the lights indicating?
Whenever you connect a different device to the cable/DSL modem the modem itself must be reset. Dont even waste a phone call to linksys. Its useless.
If you are using DSL depending on your ISP you may have to enter your account info into the router's PPoE section
Cable users should have the router set to "Obtain IP aadress automatically"
Use the reset button on the back of the router and start from scratch. Unplug the cable/DSL modem power Hook up your router WAN/Internet to the Cable/DSL modem Ethernet/LAN jack Power on the Cable/DSL Modem first, wait about a minute, then power on the router.
if you know the cables are connected and not faulty, then it could be the fact that the network card itself is dissabled, so right click on the network icon in your taskbar and click status if showing and click enable in the next window, if when you right click on the icon in the taskbar and the option to 'connect' is displayed, click this instead.
If non of the above work, you may have a faulty cable or network card.
