Make sure that the Ethernet Cabel is plugged into the computer and attached to the router. make sure another ethernet cabel is attached from port 1 of the router to the Modem. Hope this works.

You may try to power cycle laptop, modem and router. For router just unplug the power cords of laptop, modem and router. Leave it unplug for 30 secs. Put everything back on and try connecting again.

Hope it works.

Unable to connect to internet through Linksys WRT160N router. Can unplug it and internet is fine. Tried power cycling the modem and router. Linksys comes up with all lights flashing and will not...

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.
Good Luck

Router worked fine for a couple of years. Today, an update to Internet Explorer was installing and the baby unplugged the computer. Now the internet works when the cable modem is connected directly to...

Keep the baby away from your equipment ... it is dangerous for the baby to be pulling on wires ...

Turn everything off ... everything ... unplug your router ... at the rear, find the small hole ... insert a paperclip into the hole ... depress and hold the small button inside for 30 or more seconds. Plug in the modem ... wait for it to settle down. Plug in the router power ... press the button again with the power on. Connect the uplink (wire from the router to the modem) ... let things settle down again ... plug in other network wires ... wait ... turn on your computer(s) you will now have a router that is back in new condition with factory settings ... if not ... replace the router, there is a fault in the device.

Thanks for using

I plug my router into my modem and it just doesn't want to work with me. Everything was working fine, and then last night my connection gradually got worse until I lost the Internet. I plugged my computer...

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.

Router stopped working.

As long as the power light stays solid, then the router is fine. You need to reconfigure the router for it to receive internet connection from the modem.

Upgraded to windows 7 and i am unable to connect to the internet. I get a limited or no connectivity

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/ 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

D-Link DI-534 Starting up problems

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 on the address bar. It should give you the DLink page. Once you have that configure your connection.
