The signal indicator only tells you that you are connected to the router. You need to make sure that your router is connecting to the internet. go to it's configuration page by browsing to http://192.168.0.1 (note that this address is correct for many routers but not all, check the manual to be sure) find the tests or diagnostic section and run the connection test.

Connecting Dynex N Router to Webstar cable modem ( DPC2100R2) Not getting internet signal on computer...says cable is unplugged...


That message is coming from your wired adapter. This is the wireless one. Open the wireless zero configuration utility and pick a network to connect to (make sure you type the password in right, if you have one). Also if your password changed recently, you may have to delete the network from your computer and re establish the connection again.

If this is a new connection for you, you will need to open a command window. Start->Run and type cmd. In there type "ipconfig /all" without quotes, mind the spacing. Find the wireless connection and see if you have an IP address. If not, try another USB port, uninstall and reinstall the device driver, test this on another computer if possible.
