A worked with my internet provider and I was able to get a connection from the modem, but not the router by bypassing for now. Do need to fix as my son needs for XBOX LIVE. Any suggestions

If I understand your problem correctly, you are able to connect to the Internet when you hook the computer directly to the modem, but not when the router is connected to the modem.
If this is the case, then you need to do a power drain on the modem. Power cycling the modem is not enough to clear the NVRAM of the MAC address of your computer. You have to unplug the power cord of the modem for 15 to 20 minutes in order for the NVRAM to reset and allow the modem to recognize the MAC address of the router.
After the modem has been unplugged for 15 to 20 minutes, disconnect the power cable from the router and then connect router to the modem using the Ethernet cable.
Next with the router power cord still disconnected, plug in the power cord of the modem and allow the modem to sync to the network.
Once the modem is finished with its start-up, plug-in the power cord of the router and let it sync to the network.
After the modem has completed its start-up, it should now be connected to the internet.
There must be a small reset button on your router. Hold it down for 30 seconds. Release it. wait for one minute. Now unplug the power and plug it back in. Wait for 1 minute. Once you reset the router, it will come back to factory default settings. You will need to reconfigure the router form the start according to your Internet service provider.
I'm thinking modem/router combination. first power down modem and router. Then leaving router unplugged, power up modem, make sure it's sync up then power up router. If this is a wireless connection search for your networks name on computer/laptop..ie View wireless connection. Windows allows a automatic setup if the wireless connection is unsecured. If it is secured Windows 7 will prompt a pass phrase/ or access code. Good luck. Repeat process if necessary
try powering down everything starting with your pc, then the router and modem unplug the router and modem then after its all shut down plug them in in this order, 1st the modem let it boot up wait like a minute then power up the router same thing let it boot and last power up the pc, if this doesnt work try connecting your pc directly to the modem if that works then the problem is in your router if not then the problem is most likely with your ips contact them and ask around if thats the case
Shut off your router and unplug the power. Also unplug your cable modem and shut down all your computers. First plug in your cable modem, wait for lights to come back on, plug in your router and then boot your computer.
Turn everything off:
Cable modem unplug the power to the modem if it has a battery remove it.
Router unplug the power to the router
Shutdown any and all computers connected to the router
Turn everything on in this order:
Cable modem wait until all the lights are on but the internet act light
Router wait until the lights goes through it's test cycle and the internet light (wan) is on.
Boot up the computers one at a time after the first computer is fully loaded go to the next computer
Try resetting the router . Press the reset button for 10 seconds and after 10 seconds unplug the power cable but continue pressing the reset button for another 30 seconds after 30 seconds plug in back the power cable and continue pressing the reset button for 10 seconds and release it after 10 seconds.
try to open an Internet browser and type in 192.168.0.1 on the address bar. It should give you the DLink page. Once you have that configure your connection.
Cleaning your appliance may very well take care of your problem. But if not make sure the drivers and the software have been installed. If they appear to be installed then uninstall them and restart your computer and reinstall them. If you have the same problem then take to a qualified service center.
