Question about Computers & Internet
Is the problem that "nothing coming from the modem to the router"
if the router has more than one Lan port try the cable from the modem to the router, in the first lan port or the last port.
if its a wireless problem,ensure wireless router function is turned on ,and the adapter is enabled on the pc ,
if you set up a security key in the router ensure that it is put into the other pc wireless setting.(but try setting up without any security keys) when succesfull you can ad the security measures.
sometimes you need to turn on the modem first then turn the router on after a little while to sort the ip address out before trying to connect the other pc, in the first instance.
hope this is of help
please rate my efforts as this is our reward

box (The DHCP server will be disabled in Access Point Mode by default).

Click the Advanced IP Settings tab on the

Assign an IP address to the Wireless Broadband Router.
NOTE: The IP address should be reserved by the DHCP server. The Wireless Broadband Router cannot act as a DHCP client, therefore, it needs a static IP address for its LAN interface.
