I assume that you have a new modem in your new location. If this is the case, you need to clone the MAC address in the router setup (see online manual) OR you can reset the router to factory default state.

Sounds like a problem with your cable connection. Check your coaxial cable, and the splitter from where the cable enters your home. The tech will use a signal meter to measure the quality of your cable, and then replace the wiring if necessary.

I hooked up everything right modem to router, router to computer. but i still cant get internet to my computer. if i hook my modem directly to the compiter it works fine but not through the router


Some ISPs (Internet Service Providers) limit you to *ONE* unique computer connected through the cable-modem (or DSL-modem).
Turn the cable-modem off.
Turn the router off.
Connect the cable-modem to the router, via an Ethernet cable to the 'WAN' port on the router.
Turn the cable-modem on.
Turn the router on.
Connect, via an Ethernet cable, from one of the 'LAN' ports on the router to your computer.
Restart your computer.
You should be OK.
If not, telephone your ISP, and get them to trouble-shoot from "their" end towards your end.

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

Most routers only have Ethernet connectors, so you should connect the cable modem to the router with an Ethernet cable. Generally, it goes into a port labeled WAN or Internet.

Router worked. Modem quit. Now it won't work with new modem


Ok in this case the problem is more than likely a generic one for all modems. All modems like to bind themselves to whatever device you have initially plugged in when you plug in the power cable for the modem. My guess is you had the pc hooked up directly to the modem and then plugged in the poewr cable to the modem.

To fix this you need to unplug the router and modem cables for 2 minutes. Plug in the modem with it being hooked up to nothing but the wall [Power Cable and Internet Cords hooked up only; no pc yet]

Your router is probably not need to be bridged so there should be a small hole somewhere on the router normally on the back or bottom saying reset. Press and hold that button with the router only plugged into the power no internet or pc [Although it doesnt matter if the pc is hooked up to the router] for at least 10 seconds. This will cause the router to reset to the factory default settings undoing the bridge. After this time the modem should say it has internet and whatever else except a activity light and similar things.

What you want to do now is unplug the router from the power and hook up the modem to the router and then plug the power cable back into the router.

After all this you should be able to go into the pc and access the router and set up the settings you like or need for the router if you want. Otherwise you should have internet again.

Want to hook laptop up to home computer via cable modem


You need a router or a wireless router to do that.
If your cable modem is wireless you can set directly via wireless network a connection with your laptop (the laptop also need a wireless card (if dont have any built in))
The connection must be done in this way

ISP ----->> Cable Modem ---->> Wireless Router o Router ----->> Computer ( 1, 2, or more)
