We ll start with the physical connections.
1.take ethernet cable n connect one end of the cable to the modem and the other end to the isolated port on the router(internet port) and then connect the computer and your router with other cable(any lan port).refer the chart on the router to distinguish the internet and lan port.

router lite status-power,alphabet i lite,wireless lite(lollipop lite) and the number light lit up(depends on the port eg port no:1 connected number 1 light lit up).

according to your current problem , it seems that your router has to be configured properly, as you say that you are able to go online with your modem..the possible option is you need to change cthe ipaddress of your router, try, http://kb.linksys.com,
or call linksys 1800 5465797 and the tech at the other end would assist you in a step by step procedure..

I need more details, but I recommend that you download the manual and go step-by-step through all the settings. I trashed my Netgear and that is what I did to fix.
I found the manual for the Linksys WRT54GC (and many others) at this location "http://www.generalmanual.com/Network/Linksys-WRT54GC-Compact-Wireless-G-Broadband-Router.htm" (other locations want a pint of blood before they share the document).
Chances are you need to start with a factory reset (find a paperclip and press-hold the recessed button -- i don't know where), then attach the ethernet cable from your PC to a spare port. Open the browser and point to http://192.168.0.1/. If that does not work, try https://192.168.0.1/ (notice the 's' in https versus http).
Once you get the admin screen with a login prompt -- you are probably going to be successful.
The factory login is probably userid: admin with password: admin. Check the manual that you downloaded.
Getting the ISP information correct is crucial for completing the admin. You need to visit their website for the DNS server address, subnet mask and gateway. There are other configurations, but stick with this until you know it works.
Now you can connect the cable modem to the WAN port (not one of the four-eight LAN ports for your computers)
Now, with another browser session, point to a public IP: I like google -- so I would use, www.google.com.
If that works you are done. Connect more PCs and check if you need to setup the firewall. Usually the factory default is what you want for max security. If you need special "ports opened" for games, video streaming, etc. then you should post another question as that can be another night of Q & A :-))
I hope that works for you!
More commentary follows ....
As for my Linksys, I had a nightmare with getting a needed firmware upgrade while it was under warranty and when tech support got done, they authorized a return-repair.

Your friend is able to go online using the same wireless network. that means the wireless network is working properly and there might be a problem with your computer .
You said that you can connect to the wireless network but you can not go online.
Check the IP address and the default gateway of the computer.
Try to ping the router and DNS server and check what happens.
Make sure that there is no static IP address on the computer.
