What do you mean cannot get on the internet? when you are plugged into the router does this mean you cannot see any web pages? are you able to pull an IP address from the router? Check if your able to ping Gateway (router) and get a reply back. To do this go to your start command then run and type CMD and hit enter... a dos like window will come up then type the command ipconfig and hit enter again... look for the "default gateway" ex) 192.168.0.1 and then try to ping it! do this by typing ping 192.168.0.1 you should get something like this.

S:\>ping 163.254.16.1
Pinging 163.254.16.1 with 32 bytes of data:
Reply from 163.254.16.1: bytes=32 time<1ms TTL=255
Reply from 163.254.16.1: bytes=32 time<1ms TTL=255
Reply from 163.254.16.1: bytes=32 time<1ms TTL=255

if you do then that means your getting a reply back from the router and the connection between the 2 are fine. If the router is unable to obtain an ip address from your vendor.. there could be multiple reasons why. Does your provider do mac filtering? also you can try upgrading the firmware on the unit by going to linksys.com and searching for the latest firmware.. let me know how your tests go.

Reset my dlink dir 615 router and now internet light stays flashing orange


Do you have the Internet connected to the Internet port in the back of the DLINK? You will have to configure the DLINK for internet access. Open a web browser to your DLINK and check on the configuration under internet-setup. Select the type of internet connection you have i.e. DHCP, PPPoE, Static, etc. Once that is set up, you should have access to the internet like before.

Connected wireless to router, excellent signal, but unable to connect to internet.


connected to wireless router with excellent signal may not means you are connected to internet. make sure your modem provided by internet service provider has signal! connect your computer to modem directly bypassing router. If you are online that means your internet is functional. Then connect modem to your Linksys router and use your wireless to log on to internet.
Your router wireless signal active and excellent means you are connected to router not necessarily the internet. The modem supplied by your internet service provider with active internet should be connected to you router on WAN port!
good luck!!

Internet Problam Windows 7


hi, make sure you have your router connected to your cable modem. make sure the internet lights are blinking on both.

no internet light on modem:
this indicates that the internet service provider has an internet outage. call them and see if internet is down in your area. if it is up, they will probably have to replace the modem.

internet light on modem bot not on router:
this indicates that you have the cable plugged in the wrong port, or you are using a bad cable.
make sure the internet cable coming from the modem is plugged into the routers "Internet" port, not the ones labeled 1,2,3,4. if that was not the problem, check with another cable.

software issues:
if you have an internet light on both devices, yet the problem persists, go on your computer:
1) click the start button
2) click control panel
3) click network and internet
4) click network and sharing center
5) click change addapter settings (located on the left hand navigation bar)
6) right click on your local area network.
7) go to properties
8) click on internet protocol 4 (tcp/IPv4)
9) click properties
10) make sure you have is set to automatically obtain an ip address.
