Question about Computers & Internet
I have just bought a router. I have tried for hours and cannot get past No. 1 on the instruction list. That is checking connection between router and computer. All lights are on, Power light, and others. The internet light keeps blinking. I am using Vista on my comp.
Gordon, what brand is the router and DSL/Cable Modem.
It will help for references later if needed.
When Started out hooking up a network with a router and DSL/Cable modem, I find that the first instruction it ask for is to see if there's a connection to the internet. That's the first step normally, then it goes into having the user actually hook the router to the modem. After that, it search's both modem and router for information and copy's or so them to each other. This where the cd software comes into play. After this step, it's finishes up any other install it needs like other third partys and cleanup of files it used before. This is the time were if anything can go wrong, most likely will happen. If not, your golden.
Then restart the system to take effect of the new changes that were made.
Once restart is finish, brings windows and connections software
up and running, so you can connection asap.
Again each and every device is different.
Let me know

NOTE: It is
advisable to connect the computer to one of the Ethernet (1, 2, 3 or 4)
ports when setting up the router for the first time. If you have
successfully configured the router using a wireless computer, unplug the
Ethernet cable which connects the computer to the router for you to
have wireless Internet connection. For instructions on how to connect
the wireless computer to go online using the Linksys router, click here.
Make sure the power adapter is plugged in to an available power outlet.
Check if the corresponding LEDs on the router are lit. For instructions, click here.

Do you have DHCP enabled on your PC? Sounds like you are not getting the IP address.
