If you're connecting to a cable modem (some other service providers too, but mostly cable), this is usually because the router isn't getting a valid IP address. Most cable modems only work with the connection to the computer originally used to set up the service, and they don't recognize the router as a valid device.

You need to do something called "cloning the MAC address" in your router. The MAC address is a unique address assigned to the network interface in your computer. In the router setup page under WAN settings is where you'll find the clone address function. This copies the MAC address of your computer into the router so that the modem will connect it to the Internet. Once that's done, the computers connected to the router should be able to connect.

D-link's website has an explanation of how to do this on their FAQ page.

How to connect a router


It depends on the router but how I did it is
1. Connect the ethernet cable to the router, then the cable that came with the router to the router with one end, then plug the other end into the computer.
2. There should be a disk that you have to install which is the firmware for the router. Once this is done, it will automatically update from now on.
3. It should set up itself!

Getting ip address, but cannot connect to internet through router. I am connected via an ethernet cord. No problems with modem.


Make sure that your computer is able to go online directly through the modem.
If your computer is able to go online through the modem, that means the modem is working fine.
You will need to connect the computer to the router and the modem to the router.
open the set up page of the router and change the settings of the router according to the ISP.

Acquiring IP address and won't connect to wireless


You possibly have your router password protected or have changed the password recently. If you have done either, you will need access the router by the router IP address, then go in and make sure the password you have on the router is the same as the password you have no the computer.

Secondly, make sure that the router is broadcasting correctly. Hard wire(hook the computer directly to the router with a ethernet cable) to see if there is an internet connection flowing thru the router.

Third, ensure that the ethernet cord from your modem to your router is a good cord. Be sure to plug the ethernet cord from your modem directly into your computer to ensure there is a good connection as well.

Reconnect all (modem, router, and computer)

Fourth, power down router, modem, and computer together. Power up the modem first and let all the lights come on. This will renew the connection and refresh the IP address. Once the modem is up, then power up the router til all the lights are powered on the router. Lastly, power up the computer to the desktop and attempt to launch a web browser (internet explorer, mozilla, safari, etc.).

If nothing at this point works, you will have to consult your router manufacturer or a local computer repair shop. Be sure that the technicians working on your issue is certified.

How can i set up a connection to a network with windows vista basic


There are several ways to do this you can use a router, wireless router or set up a direct connection. With a router all you have to do is connect your modem to the router and computers to the router. For a wireless connection you need a wireless card installed in your computer and a wireless router. You connect your modem to your router and set up your wireless connection with the software that came with your card or through windows wireless service. You can also connect two computers through their ethernet port with an ethernet cord.

Trouble connecting netgear wireless router to rca modem DCM425


First try connection the Yellow ethernet cable from the rca modem to your computer's network connection. If you get a connection this way, then your modem will work with a ethernet cable. If not, then call Comcast for help. The modem ethernet out to computer port must be connected to the wan line of the router. Then you can connect an ethernet cable from your computer network connection to one of the 4 ports of the router. For wireless connections you must set up the router and wireless adaptor with the same settings to connect. Follow the routers directions.
Good Luck
