Is all the cable connected? Is the ethernet cable or broadband cable all connected?
Did you check if your wireless internet works. My friends router indicator for the wireless died but the wireless connection has no problem. If that does not work try to get a different modem and try again. If it still does not work you may have to get somebody to set it up for you.
Sorry that i can't be much of a help.
My father is much better at this kind of stuff than me.
