If you have a exterior modem from a company like at&t or verizon,you don't need a router.The modem will work for your wired connection and to laptops wireless.You just need to change settings on the computer,or call the phone company and they will talk you through it.Take the router back and get your money for it.
1. You need to make sure that you have a "straight through" cable and not a "crossover". 2. the yellow cable that your cable company provided is the cable that goes from the rj45 wall connector to the "WLAN" connector in the back of the router. If you go to router manufacturers site you will find the instruction how to to connect your router to the cable modem. 3. check also the firmware updates for your router at this site and download. 4.Use your setup disk and follow the instruction set for cable also. This should walk you through the proper setup . YOu didn't provide the model number of your router, I would have given you the setup site for your particular router. You can go to D-Link's site and download the PDF instruction also.
Your cable modem has a ip address of 192.168.1.1 and your router probably has the same ip address. Hook your computer up to the router and change the ip address to 192.168.9.1. On your router change the router mode to static ip address mode. Then you will need to know your username and password from you cable company, and the Domain Number. Then connect the cable back to the wan port from the modem and the other end to the wan port of the router. Connect the computer to the first lan port on the router and type 192.168.9.1 go to the status page and tell it to connect.
Your cable company is giving you one ip addres and have to pay for another for more than one computer. What are you doing is using the router to receive the first ip address and distrubting out to the other computers.
Are you trying to set up the router ?
First make sure that your computer is online when connected directly to the mdoem. ISP is DSL.
If not online through the modem then you should have user name and password for the ISP.

Hey, connect a network (straight through cable) from the blue socket on the modem to the WAN socket on your router (This socket will be split away from the other 4 on the router), then turn on your router 1st then modem.
The single slot is where you connect your cable modem by use of ethernet (cat-5/6 cable). the other 4 act like a switch (basically plug your computer into those IF the router isn't a wireless router. IF it is, only use the single and only for the line coming from your cable modem.
you can put your ps3 in a dmz zone. if still does not work its not your router. u can keep your ps3 in dmz and get your router to open ports. u can call your router company. If still does not work its not your router more than likely. It might be your modem. i have at&t and that was my issue. i went to dmz on modem and allowed it to pass through dmz zone and ip addresses to pass through. but make sure on your comp u have spyware or something. Your ps3 can not get virus.

Blue cable goes from modem to router port next to power connection. Yellow cable is just if your going wired. It would be used to go from one of your router ports to your pc if your pc was close enoug. Don't forget to rate please if this helps.
