Make sure you have the wireless icon on the taskbar lower right side. If it does not show connected, click the icon and search for wireless devices, you should see the router. connect to the router. Also make sure you have a solid DSL/CABLE status light on the service modem. BPCS

Take the modem and plug it into a GFCI outlet. You can find one in the bathroom or the kitchen.
If the power light comes on solid green and the dsl comes on red then the modem is good. Was it plugged into a power strip by the computer? If so, plug it straight into a wall outlet.
If the power light comes on solid red then the modem has hardware failure. I would contact your ISP and have them replace it if it is still underwarranty.

You might try this:
1 power off or unplug your cable or DSL Modem.
2 Power off your router
3 waiti about 30 seconds,
4 plug in your cable/DSL modem
5 wait until the modem boots up (all lights except activity should be on)
6 power up your router.
Did that work?

the ds light is for downstream which is your digital signal simply put...... if the light is not going solid to denote being :"online" there maybe signal related issues. rain will mess up the cable signals as the service is exposed to elements etc.....here is a trick i do with a modem that doesnt want to lock on to good signal.....reboot the damn thing...........give it a minute or two.. if the online light doesnt sync up solid....unscrew the cable connector on the back of the modem while it is powered up and wait 15 seconds////then screw it back on (needs to be hand tight, its like a water hose, if its loose you get signal loss) and give it 10 minutes......if it still doesnt lock up and go solid indicating online then call your cable company, you should not get charged for their service not working correctly..........it then would be something only a tech could fix. but if it does lock up and go solid ....hook up your router , power it up and give it a minute to sense the modem, restart the computer and you should be good to go...
