Question about Modems
First before you try the wireless. Make sure that the internet is working by plugging an ethernet cable directly from the modem to your computer or laptop. If internet is working fine then remove the ethernet cable from the laptop and plug it in on your wireless router. I would advise to turn off router before plugging in modem so it would not possibly conflict with any IP address. Then go to your laptop then search for the strongest wireless signal. Chances are that would be your wireless router. Hit on connect then type in your wireless password. Wireless password should be in the sticker of the wireless router not unless you already customized it. And that's it. You are now connected wireless. In some wireless router you might need to turn off DHCP for it to work, if that's the case and modem is working fine then call your OEM ie: linksys, netgear, dlink.

DISABLE ALL ANTIVIRUS AND FIREWALLS FOR PURPOSES OF THE TEST (ENSURE TO PUT THEM BACK ON). IS THE ROUTER REPORTING AS BEING ONLINE? SECONDLY YOU COULD TRY PINGING 22.214.171.124 I FYOU GET A REPLY THEN TRY PINGING WWW.GOOGLE.COM IF THERE IS NO RESPONSE FROM THE SECOND BUT RESPONSES FROM THE FIRST THEN ITS A DNS ISSUE.
