Hi there, you need to configure the router first to connect over the internet.

checked if everything is properly connected, modem-router to the computer, checked the lights on the router and the modem as well if it is properly lit up.

if your ISP(Internet Provider) is cable then you need to clone the mac address of the computer, if you are running DSL, you need to input the username and password of your account from your ISP.

Accessing the router setup screen, open IE and type on the address bar 192.168.1.1 then nothing for username and password is admin.

on the setup screen you will see there Internet connection type, by default it is automatic configuration if you have cable connection as your Internet then leave it that way and look for mac address clone sub tab.

if you are running dsl for the Internet connection type you need to put PPPoE and input there your username and password from your ISP. then in everything you do you need to save the settings there.

tell me if it

    can you check the Ip address of the computer when you are connected directly with the router? make sure lights are on.



    on you computer start> run> cmd and hit okay then on the black screen type ipconfig and then hit okay look for an IP address.

Your provider probably sent you either a cable modem or adsl modem. If you connect the single port on the modem to the WAN or Internet Port on the Linksys and then connect the computers to any of the 4 ports that are grouped together, it should work.
Mac or PC, it makes no difference and drivers are not needed.
Unless this is a new router or it is one that you personally configured, I recommend resetting it back to factory default by holding down the little red button for 30 seconds, this eliminates any configuration issues that someone else may have introduced.

Since you did not include the type of internet provider I cannot give you more specific instructions. Although you can refer to the links below on how to set it up. If you require further assistance just reply to this and give me the model number of your ISP and the model of your router.
