Question about Computers & Internet
Hi, morning/afternoon. This may not be a problem with your router. I'll explain.
Refresher: computer > router > internet. Your computer can be connected to your router and yet not connected to the internet. Suggest that you do the following in this order: (although to post your issue, you must have been connected to the internet.. hence no problem, right?)
1) Power off your laptop/desktop
2) Power off your router
3) Power off your internet connection (cable modem or dsl)
leave off for 30 seconds
Power on your cable modem (if you have one) or dsl connection
Power on your router
Power on your laptop/desktop
That should get you going Your note: connected to my router (means you are connected to the local router) but not getting web pages could be your ISP. Also, check your cable connections. If this happened "suddenly" respectfully, have you paid your internet bill? Because you can be connected to a router, but blocked from the internet. Hope that helps. dw

1. Open a web browser on the computer.
2. In the address bar of the web browser, type http://192.168.2.1.
3. Click Login in the upper right-hand corner of the page. The router does not ship with a password, so just click Submit.
4. Click on "Connection Type" under Internet WAN
5. Choose the appropriate connection as provided by your Internet Service Provider (ISP) and press "Next"
will need to enter the settings as provided by your ISP. If you have
options such as Encapsulation and MTU, then these should be set to VCMUX
all of the appropriate settings have been entered, you may click on
"Apply Changes". Your Modem Router will now save this data and attempt
to connect to the Internet.
Your Modem Router should now show you that the "Internet Status" is "Connected" in the top right-hand corner of the interface. On some Modem Routers you may need to select the "Connect" button found on the "Home" page.
