I'm sure you have tried most of these steps but I'm going to list them any way so we have a complete picture of the trouble shooting process.

First you will want to power cycle the computer and modem, To do this you will need to shout down the computer and disconnect the power cable from the modem . Allow all devices to remain off for 2 minutes. Plug the modem in first. Wait for the modem to establish a connection with the internet service provider(ISP). Depending on the type of modem this can take up to 5 minutes. Then turn on the computers in the home. Next try replacing the Ethernet cable. If still there is no connection from the modem to the router then try another computer. Before you can connect another computer you must power cycle the modem again. If the second PC has the same issue than your modem will need to be replaced.

I hope that information above has helped is some way.
If possible please rate this solution.

I have no usb cable


Most routers dont use USB, they use ethernet. Ethernet will require an ethernet adapter installed on your computer, this is also known as a Network interface card. Depending on if you have a modem or not, you run the ethernet cable from the modem to the routers internet/modem/wan port, then another ethernet cable from the router to the computer.

The PC/ACTIVITY my Motorola modem isn't on... i don't know what to do.


if all of the other lights on the modem are lit, except pc activity, that means the modem isnt communicating with the computer. 3 things can cause this - modem could be bad, ethernet cord could be bad, or the NIC card(the card in the cpu that houses the ethernet port) is bad. Most of the time its the ethernet cord or the NIC card in my experience. Dont fret, both of those are relatively cheap fixes.

Ethernet cable does not fit


The modem jack is too small because it is for a phone line connection not an ethernet connection. If you want to get online by dial-up, you need to connect modem to a phone line. Ohterwise look for another input jack on the laptop that the ethernet cable will insert to.

My Mdoem's ethernet and usb lights are off


assuming you using ethernet to connect the pc to the modem: how about checking your ethernetLAN card on the pc if it's integrated with the motherboard you can enable it from the bios settings if it's an expansion card it sounds like you need the most up to date driver which can be downloaded from the card manufacturer's website if you have access to internet on another pc. assuming your pc is connected to the modem via usb: reinstall the driver for the modem . another thing you can do is buy a usb to ethernet adapter which are available for under $5 on the market one end connects to the usb port on your pc and the other end is ethernet and this should work .
