See if the cable is connected properly.
1. Press it harder into the cable slot.
2. Try using another cable that you have used before and you know that works.
2. Try to reset the router at the reset button (hold for about 2-3 seconds).
3. Make sure that it is not an issue with cross over/straight cable. (even though this should never be a problem)

Are you trying to run the CD that comes with the router ?
You get this error when your computer is not able to connect to the router.
Actually you can say that it is a bug in the CD.
Even if your computer is connected to the router, it will say that it is not connected.
You can set up the router manually without the CD.
make sure that your computer is connected to one of the Ethernet port on the router.
Reset the router for 30 seconds. wait for 1 minute.
unplug the power to the router and plug it back in.
Wait for a minute and try to set up the router manually.
Make sure that your computer is able to go online directly through the modem.
If your computer is able to go online through the modem, that means the modem is working fine.
You will need to connect the computer to the router and the modem to the router.
open the set up page of the router and change the settings of the router according to the ISP.
