Question about Computers & Internet
Can you be more specific? What lights are coming on? what devices are hooked up to it? What kind of router is it, dsl or cable? Who makes it? Please include these details in your question. However, first thing i would do is, try unplugging the power on your modem and router. While you wait the 15-20 seconds needed to clear the devices memories.. make sure the modems ethernet cable is plugged into the WAN or Internet port of the router. Then go ahead and take the ethernet cable from computer 1 and put it in port 1 of the router. Then take computer 2's ethernet cable and plug it into port 2 of the router. Now that you have made sure all the cables are in correctly, take the power cord for your modem and plug it back into the modem. Wait until all the lights are in thei "ready" status. Once they are all lit in ready status, plug the power cord for your router in. Let those lights get to the ready status as well. Once thats done, test your connection. If there is still no result, do the following on each computer: Go to Start>Run type cmd in the dialogue box, you should now have a black window with a blinking cursor, type " ipconfig /release " wait for it to give you the blinking cursor once again and confirm that the list states 0.0.0.0 for each of the items. Then type " ipconfig /renew " What this will do is tell your computer to get rid of its old ip that it had with your modem and search for its new one that the router will assign. The new ip will resemble 192.168.0.100 or 192.168.0.101 depending on which computer you are on. Either way, thats the way its supposed to look. if this action is completed successfully, you should have an active internet connection and you can be on your way. :) good luck !

Try to reset the reset button of the router to return to his default configuration and try to connect. Look for the pin or ballpen then press the reset at least 15 second.
