Hi .
First who is your service provider?
Can you connect to the internet if you directly hook your modem to your computer.
1>If so connect your Modem to your router on the colour code slot on the router which says modem
2>Connect a cable from the router to your computer
3>The lan light on the router should be turned on
4>Check wether your lan says connected . To check that click start-> control pannel -> network connections
5>If it says connected try internet explorer settings
6>If it says limited or no connectivity
Click start ->run -> cmd->ipconfig
7>It should say ip address as : 169.254.x.x.
8>If so type ipconfig/release
9>It shoul say ip address: 0.0.0.0
10>Type ipconfig/renew on command promt
12>Disable and enable lan

Let me know if this helped and also if you dont what kind of messages you get .

Is there a way i can hook up internet to 2 desktops with 1 modem/router?


That is exactly what a router is for.
If your modem doesn't have multiple ethernet connections, then go out and buy a generic router (like linksys or belkin or cicso or netgear, etc.) and hook the WAN port of the router to the modem's ethernet connection, and then hook the computers into the multiple ethernet connections on the router.

I used to have 5 computers hooked to a DLINK router (DI-707) for a LAN and the router hooked to a modem for internet. I changed IP and got a pk500 modem. I can plug 4 computers to the pk500 and get...


This might actually has nothing to do with the router itself, you may need to call your ISP (Internet Service Provider) and let them know you have a new router. They may have to configure it themselves because some modems are not plug-and-play (which means when you get a new router, the modem doesn't automatically recognize the new router.) So, your best bet right now is to call your ISP and they will walk you through it. I faced a similar issue and finally got through by simply calling my ISP, calling the router's manufacturer may do nothing, at least it didn't for me.
Try this: Unplug all internet cords, unplug all power cords. Wait about 30 seconds to 2 minutes. Connect your router to the modem with one internet line, into to the appropriate ports. Next, plug your modem into the power source, and let it run for approximately 4 minutes (or until all of the lights are on and it is ONLINE.) It varies per modem on when it is 100% online. Next, plug your router into the power source, and wait until it loads 100%. Then try plugging into one of your computers, not all, one, and preferably using Windows Operating systems because they detect internet more easily than Mac.
If all else fails, one more troubleshooting to do, and that is to plug your computer DIRECTLY from the modem to the computer via internet cord, bypassing the router. If you get internet from the modem, then it is supposed to work, the router could be the issue. If you are NOT getting the internet, then the modem is the issue.
Lastly, I really think calling your ISP would solve the issue all together. GOOD LUCK!

For some reason when I hook the Router up I can not get onliine on any computer that I have the router for. I just moved and it worked fine at the last place. But the system light blinks. I forget if that...


Blinking shows activity, Double check how you have it hooked up....If you are using Internet connection sharing you should have your modem hooked throught your pc and your pc hooked to the #1 slot on the router...If you have your router connected to the modem its self make sure that you have it connected to the internet port of the router......If this is all set up properly hit the main reset (little black button on the back of the router) hold it for 30 seconds. Another possibility is firewall conflicts. Get back with me and let me know if this worked out for you...If not there are alternate directions we can take to solve this issue as it can be a number of things

Router not hooked up properly


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.



If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

check the ip addresses with the pc downstairs and see if all the pc's have the same default gateway. If not check your network card or network cable.
