My advice and personal experiences with both wired and wireless connectivity, is if you wish to share files and internet connection, purchase a combined Modem/Router and not a seperate router to work along side your original modem. Your modem will send your router an ip address in turn your pc is sent one from your router and can get complicated; keep it simple! These are much easier to set up and control as one unit and if there are ever any connection problems you will know it's either a setting or a modem/router problem and not have to wonder ; is it the modem?; Router? settings? etc. As there are frequent loss of connections both internet and LAN it makes sense have one peice of equipment to maintain.

Dear Loud Nouises,
Your router must be connected properly to the cable modem. This must be to the wan port on the router.
Next, the router must be set-up accordingly to recognize the modem's internet connections. Please ask for the IP address.. and other relevant informations from your internet provider.
Set -up your computer using the internet connections wizard on each of your respective computer.
This should work fine if all connections were correctly configured.

It looks like all your devices by themselves are working fine.
If you took the router out of your office I assume that the settings from the office and your home are different, which causes the setup not to work properly.
First of all you should find out which hardware version of the router you have and download the manual from here, so you have the information at hand when you're not online.
Then you want to rest the router to factory settings, so you start clean. In order to do so, use the Factory Default Reset button: First, turn off the router's power. Second, press and hold the default reset button then turn on the router's power, until the SYS LED lights up (about 3 seconds). Last, release the reset button and wait for the router to reboot.
Follow the instructions in the manual form page 8 on onwards with a special view on setting up PPPoE. Have your information form your DSL provider handy (Account name and password).
The default webpage for the router interface is http://192.168.1.1
Username and password are both "admin".
Do not enable any wireless security until everything is working fine.
Make sure later to change the password to something else, so no one can "take over" your router.
If this solution did not help, please don't rate it as "Thanks for trying" or so, but leave a comment instead and I will check back and we can work form there.

SOURCE: Hello. I've got a SMC
Sounds defective. Disconnect it, flip it over and give it a smell. If you smell burnt wires or plastic (typically a faint smell, but a smell nonetheless) the router's toast.

Try logging into the router with your desktop hard-wired and find the 25-digit passcode and use that to log on to the wireless network with the laptop. If not, then check if connection is good by hard-wiring the router to the laptop. Let me know what happens or if you have solved the problem.
