Sure you can that. 1. you have new internet connection. need to configure the router according to internet connection type. it could be manually .. 2. set the wireless settings on the router again manually. then try to connect the router.
If you need my help the send me some information about the network. 1. when you connect your pc to modem what ip address you get. 2. what ip you get when u connect your pc to router. make hard wired in both condition.
Connect modem lan cable to Router Wan / Internet port.
From Router Lan port you can either connect your system or switch .
wireless : Scan for wireless network from your wireless system. If it shows, connect to your wifi network
In order to go wireless you need to know if you model has wireless capability (ask your Internet provider or from who you purchase the modem). If the modem does not have that capability then get a wireless access point or wireless router (I suggest a wireless router so you can have multiple computer connected to the internet). There are lots of brands out there namely, Linksys, Netgear, D-link or Belkin.
-- can you get online if you connect your computer directly to your modem?
-- what is the operating system of your computer? -- is this working fine before or is this a brand new router
you may try this and see if this help solve your problem. make sure your computer is directly connected to the router
Step 1: Shutdown the computer. Step 2: reset the router while power on then Unplug the router’s power cable. Step 3: Unplug the Broadband modem’s power cable and wait for 30 seconds. Step 4: Plug in the Broadband modem’s power cable and wait for its lights to appear stable. Step 5: Plug in the router's power cable once the modem’s lights appear stable. Step 6: Power on the computer on and configure the router settings Step 7: test the Internet connection.
if this still didnot work, upgrade the firmware of your router
you have to go in your router's setup screen (192.168.1.1) default password is admin, then you need to select the internet connection type as PPPoE, thype your username, which could be your primary email with your ISP, and your password, which could be the last 7 digits of your home phone number. If you cannot figure out your username/password, contact your ISP.
also make sure that your DHCP server is enabled in the router setup menu.
