When i connect my computer the the modem directly the internet works perfectly, but when i connect it to the router i get limited or no connectivity. It has been working fine for the longest, but i all of a sudden have this issue. Also when i attempt to go thru the linksys setup process again, I get stuck at the part where i pick my router from the list. The "NEXT" button just won't work.

Re: LIMITED OR NO CONNECTIVITY
The setup will not really work because of the message that you are getting. LImited or no connectivity means that you computer recognized the connection but its not getting an ip address to the router. Have you tried turning off the router and leave it off for a minute or two and see if you resolve this issue? Is your power light solid green right now?

Try power cycling the router. Disconnect the router from all computers and devices.Power off the router.Power on the router.Reconnect the router to all computers and devices.Check the Internet connectivity.
Unfortunately, ISP techs often try to put blame on their clients equipment as much as possible. If your computer is showing limited connectivity, then this means that it is able to successfully connect to your wireless router, meaning that its probably not your adapter. Limited connectivity usually is a sign that you cannot reach the internet. This could be caused by multiple issues. In order to isolate the problem, try connecting your computer directly into your modem using the cable from the wireless router. If you can connect to the internet, then it is a configuration problem with your router. If not, then it is something with your connection to your ISP, in which case you need to call your ISP back and explain that situation. If you do happen to connect to the internet, then please reply, and we can go from there.
Not a lot of info to go on, but I'll give you my thoughts on it. In my experience, limited connectivity indicates the modem isn't connecting up to the internet. You can reset the modem by unpowering it for a few seconds, then seeing if it will connect, but I'm sure you've already tried that. Could be a faulty modem, but I doubt it. Chances are there's a software incompatibility issue between the modem and the wireless card. Was the zonet working with the card before? If it was, you might have to go into Network in control panel and delete the linksys connection, and have windows redetect the Zonet. Sorry, all I can think of, not a whole lot of experience in this arena, and my routers always worked. Maybe someone will have had the same problem and know the solution, that would be the easiest way to go, of course.
You said that when you connect the computer to the modem, you get limited or no connectivity. make sure that your computer will be able to go online when you connect it the modem directly. If your computer is able to go online through the modem Then you need to connect the computer to the router ad the modem to the router. open the set up page of the router and change the settings of the router according to the ISP. Click Here for step by step by instructions
First you need to make sure that your modem alone is working right. you can check this by connecting your computer directly to the modem and testing for the internet connectivity.
Then power off everything. connect the ether net cable from the modem to the router. connect both the power cables (modem and router). power the modem first, wait for a minute and then power the router. this should work
First who is your service provider?
Can you connect to the internet if you directly hook your modem to your computer.
1>If so connect your Modem to your router on the colour code slot on the router which says modem
2>Connect a cable from the router to your computer
3>The lan light on the router should be turned on
4>Check wether your lan says connected . To check that click start-> control pannel -> network connections
5>If it says connected try internet explorer settings
6>If it says limited or no connectivity
Click start ->run -> cmd->ipconfig
7>It should say ip address as : 169.254.x.x.
8>If so type ipconfig/release
9>It shoul say ip address: 0.0.0.0
10>Type ipconfig/renew on command promt
12>Disable and enable lan
Let me know if this helped and also if you dont what kind of messages you get .
it is getting limited or no connectivity because it is actually not connected even though it shows.the best resolution is that change your entire wireless settings and then connect all wireless devices like computer and xbox 360 again it will connect.I use to do the same when i use to work for netgear.
