First make sure that you are using the correct cable that connects your modem to the router. There are two cables that look the same but are wired differently. One is straight wired and one is not. Sometimes the modem has a switch that will change the LAN port on the modem for the type of cable you are using. If the cable is the correct one and has been tested to be good then you may need to configure the router fot the type of internet service you have. Most routers are set up to automatically obtain the IP address from the modem. Your service provider may require you to input the static IP address and MAC address for your internet to work. There may also be password settings that are required to be set on the router settings menu. Using your computer that is hooked up to the router either manually or by wireless type or and usually the default password is admin. This should bring you to the router settings menu where you can make changes to the router so it can communicate with your modem. Without knowing what service provider you are using I cannot tell you what you need to change. You can also try unplugging your router and modem from the power. Then plug in your modem and wait a few minutes for all the communication lights to come on then plug in your router and wait a few minutes and see if you are able to go on the internet.

New modem installed and router won't work now

First step is to make sure if the modem is working. Connect your computer directly to modem with ethernet cable and see if you can log on to internet! if yes
next step connect modem to your router's WAN port with an ethernet cable and then connect your computer to one of the LAN ports of router with ethernet cable. Power down all devices and power up modem first wait until all lights are on and then router wait until all lights are on then your computer! 9 out of 10 times this works! try good luck!!

I am trying to get my netgear mr814v2 to connect to the internet via hard wire to comcast with no luck. the connection is good when i go direct from teh computer

If you connect the computer to the modem it works, that means the modem is working.
Now connect the modem and the computer to the router and open the router set up page.
Clone the MAC address of the computer on the router and power cycle the network.
That will work.

You need to check the router's admin page to make sure the DSL/Cable modem is being recognized properly. This can happen when unplugging the devices. Ck your routers user manual for login instructions. Should be default IP address of router typed into internet explorer browser then you need login/password (like admin/admin) then check the status to see if router/modem are talking to each other. Probably good idea to unplug both devices at the same time and then power back up. I can be more specific if necessary.

Hope that helps,

Configure Modem Echolife HG520s With WRT54G OR WRE54G

Not sure if I understand properly but your router should have a WAN port or an "Internet" port

your modem should be connected to it and your PC should be on any of the LAN port
