when you are on Cable Internet with a "modem" only connected directly to the computer, what the ISP see is the computer's MAC Address (command prompt -> type ipconfig and hit enter).
put a router (which has it's own MAC Address) in-between and the ISP wont let you cause it sees the router not the computer.
check physical connection: cable modem -> router -> computer(hard wire for this troubleshooting)
access the d-link gui and locate the “Clone MAC Address" button (supposed to clone the computers MAC Address - verify if it's the same), save settings & reboot the router.

Most cable company's will not allow you to use the USB and the ethernet connection at the same time. You will need to only use ethernet to your PC and your XBOX. Once you have the ethernet cord connected from your modem to the WAN/Internet port on your router you will need to press the reset button on the back of the arris to authorise the router for access. After that is done you will plug you XBOX into 1 of the 4 numbered ports on the router. Then you will need an additional ethernet cord for your PC.
Hope this helps

Shut down your computer, unplug the cable modem and the switch. Connect all three - computer to switch, switch to modem. Make sure that the ethernet cable between the router and the modem is in the router uplink port and that the computer is plugged into one of the four ports that look alike. Wait 30 seconds - plug in the modem. Wait another 30 seconds, plug in the router, wait another 30 seconds and boot the computer. Open a browser and see if you have internet access. If you still don't, then try to check the browser by typing 192.168.1.1 into the address bar of the browser. That should give you the browser sign in screen. The Linksys default is to leave the user name blank and type admin for the password. That should give you access to the router so you can check the settings. If this doesn't work, document carefully what happens and post again with your results and we'll try to go from there.

SOURCE: Hi, I'm an idiot! PLEASE HELP
you may be suffering from mixed Cat 5 and Cat 6 cabling.
The wiring is slightly different and they don't work well when mixed in routers and modems etc. One or the other will work , but when they're mixed it'll do what you have going on here...
I would recommend wiring everything with cat 6 ethernet cabling. Look on your cable and you will find the labeling on the outer casing.

Testimonial: "Thank you for the advice! I did check and all the cabling is CAT5, so I just don't understand why there's a problem..."
