Make sure that your computer is able to go online through the modem.
If your computer is not able to go online through the modem then you will need to call ISP first.

you have 2 options to connect to the router on the computer.. either wired or wireless-- if you are connecting wirelessly then just ignore "cable isnt connected" --you can change the icons so it doesnt show in CONTROL PANEL>NETWORK CONNECTIONS

Dell D600 - Linksys wireless router/adapter


Seems there is a problem with the Linksys since there is not any lights coming on. Did you plug it into a switched outlet in the wall? Does it work if you plug the Linksys into an outlet in another room?
If you can get it to light up, the way you will access it is through your web browser. Type in 192.168.1.1 into your web browser and a login in screen should pop up.
