Re: the light marked Ethernet is blinking very fast and...
Make sure all the cables are plugged all the way in... run a virus and spy ware scan... a good free spy scan is spybot... clean all extra files through the computer clean defray area found in program section... and maybe a defrag..... this is for the outside problem of a full computer that may have too many spy ware taking up your Internet and cookies filling your computer.... this could take some time but your computer will work a lot faster

Resetting the linksys router in just six easy steps..
1. Turn on the router.
2. Reset the router, wait until the power light is blinking and then press and hold the reset button for 10 second.
3. Turn off the router and turn on again.
4. Wait for the power light to stop blinking, if the power light does not stop blinking, turn the router off, wait approx 30 second , and then turn it on again.
5. Connect the router to your computer, when it is connected to a computer with an ethernet cable, the ethernet port light will light up.
6. Connect the router to your modem, the modem is connected to the internet port is your computer. The router is connected to the modem.
If you are not able to reset the linksys router password then call linksys router support phone number 1-888-494-1155 (Toll-free) USA.
Before you change anything - is this a new device you are hooking up or had this thing worked in the past? First thing to do is reboot everything starting with the modem and ending with the computer at the end of the line. Wait at least 30 seconds between each device. Review all the connections - everything plugged in where it should be? (this is of course your question - see more below).
Eithernet connections (plugs) are RJ-45. The RJ-45 looks like a RJ-11 (telephone jack) only bigger. Typically, the RJ-45 will not fit into the RJ-11 AND SHOULD NOT. Why? Your Cat 5 eithernet runs on very low voltage and signal (packet switching). If you succedssfully get the RJ-45 CAT 5 cable into the RJ-11 phone jack, when the phone rings, you will be sending 60 volts into your network. Can you spell "Do I smell smoke?" A RJ-11 will have up to 6 wires (one pair or two pair or three pair) in the jack and up to 6 'buds' on the RJ-11 plug. A RJ-45 will have 8 wires (in the jack) and 8 'buds' on the plug of your cat 5.
Your device may say DSL on the Cat 5 connection - count the wires inside or the jack.
There are other Cat 5 connection types, punch down and terminal screw types, I dont think you are talking about either.
On your AT&T modem, you should find a RJ-11 which will attach to a near by telephone jack and a RJ-45 for your Cat 5 cable. Your modem may also serve as a router and as such would have additional RJ-45 ports. I suspect you are using a separate router for your home network. As such, one of the ports on the router should be marked Internet or Upload or maybe it is a special color or is set aside from the other ports. That special port will be connected to your modem and your other computers will use the other, lesser ports.
Of course, you could call your service provider for clarification also.

1 disconnect all wires,including power from the modem and router.
2 Find reset button on router usually in the back,need a pen tip or paper clip to hold it in.
3 Hold in reset for 1 min.
4 Reconnect modem first,power up.
5 Reconnect router second, power up.
Try changing the ethernet wire from the modem to the router.
So your going to have your cable coax wire to the modem.Then a ethernet wire from the modem to the router,then a ethernet wire from the router to the computer.
Sounds like you may have one wire in the wrong place.
When working with routers, CAT-5 cables are the more usual cable used. Your modem's Ethernet Port --- connect it via cable to the router's WAN input. Connect one of the router's LAN outputs to your computer's LAN input with another CAT-5 cable. Go through the appropriate Router Setup by putting http://192.168.1.1 into your Internet Explorer, with ' admin ' for User Name, and no password (just press Enter in Password frame). Once you are in to the router setup, you can select your Network Name (SSID) and then implement whatever Security you might want to use. You should be up and running by now, nhave lots of fun!
you may be suffering from mixed Cat 5 and Cat 6 cabling. The wiring is slightly different and they don't work well when mixed in routers and modems etc. One or the other will work , but when they're mixed it'll do what you have going on here...
I would recommend wiring everything with cat 6 ethernet cabling. Look on your cable and you will find the labeling on the outer casing.
I think the light that blinks is the light that shows when you have a connection established to your ISP. Not sure if you have cable or ADSL but if the light is blinking then the router is Synchronising with the line card at the ISP/exchange end. If it continues to blink then no sync is occurring. If ADSL replace the microfilter and check that any devices atached to that line also have a microfilter between them and the socket. ALso try replace the phone cable to the microfilter to the socket. Finally you can see wether sync has occurred by looking in the log on the router Hope this helps
Go to this site to download a manual to verify you have it setup right. http://www.d-link.com/products/?tab=3&pid=WBR-1310&rev=WBR-1310 or try this first. Power off your modem,D-Link and PC. You need to have the cable that looks like a wide phone plug with 8 contacts instead of 4 (cat 5 cable) go from your comcast modem to the plug on back of the D-Link that is marked WAN. Then plug a cat 5 cable into any of the 1 through 4 Lan ports on back of the D-Link to your PC's Ethernet port. Then with all these powered off turn on the Comcast modem, wait a full 2 minutes for it to settle in. then turn on the D-Link give it 2 minutes then turn on your PC. If that doesn't work for you refer to the manual or you have something broke that may require servicing in person by someone computer savvy. Hope this helps.
