I unhooked computer to paint walls. Now

I think you must be just unlucky. I think the reset button just resets the wireless internet but I am not certain about that. Usually when a router loses it's memory it needs a call to the internet service provider who will get inside it and reset the addresses and check the connections and so forth. This is usually necessary even if you own your own router rather than having one provided by the ISP. Diagnostics says the router isn't connected to the internet so maybe that is the truth and the problem - coincidences do happen and maybe there is a fault somewhere on the line and it needs reporting to ISP so they can check it or get it checked. It could be worth double-checking the connections and leads first. I recently had trouble with a phone that worked only when it felt like it. The trouble was a couple if pins in the master socket had gone green and was failing to make contact with the phone plug some of the time.

I am connected to the internet but my computor is

Hello snaford1953,
With any luck this will be a simple fix for you. First off make sure that the cables are connected correctly, make sure that the cable from your modem is going to the "Ethernet port(may be labeled "Wan")". From there connect a similar cable from a numbered port on the router, to the pc itself. Even if you are attempting to connect through a wireless connection. If you still cannot connect while wired, power cycle both the router, and the modem(unplug each, wait 20 seconds plug both back in). Sometimes just restarting the hardware, can fix an issue.. especially with modems.
If you are attempting a wireless connection log into your router by opening up internet explorer typing 192.168.0.1, or 192.168.1.1 into the address bar. At this time you should be prompted for a user name and password. With out the model of the router i unfortunately cannot be specific, that said they are generally one of the following. Administrator, admin, or (just leave blank) for username(most should be admin) password can be (blank), 1234, or admin.
From there you will be able to turn on the Wireless broadcast. Eventually you will need to setup security such as "wep", or "wpa". However its always a good idea to try and get it working with out security first, can be much less of a hassle doing wireless connections in steps. The router will have explanations available, and most likely a setup wizard to help with the process.
Hopefully i was able to answer your question, good luck.

Of a sudden, my wireless TV won't stream netflix

Yes, but you may be having a problem with your internet provider, not your modem.

1) Yes, you can do a soft reset of your cable modem, just pull the power plug, and then plug in. Suggesting you leave the power cord out for 30 seconds. This will do a soft reset of your cable modem, and will not hurt any settings. No worries.

2) You can do a "hard reset" but this is a bit dangerous. If you have any "custom" settings in your router, passwords, or configuration, it will be lost. If you do need (want) to do this, you will first want to go into the cable modem, and "save" your current configuration. At least make "note" of what the configuration is on a piece of paper, for each tab. Also, if you do this, your cable modem will go to its default settings and password. So, suggesting taht you DO NOT do a hard reset without prep. To do a hard reset, on the back of the cable modem is a red button, push and hold for 30 seconds. (Again suggesting, you do not do this without prep.)

That will let you do a reset....

However, I'm thinking that your buffering may be the result of an issue on your computer or your ISP. Tell us more about your configuration. dw

How i do the setup of my Linksys Extender?

Unplug the power cables of the router and the range extender for 30 seconds. Plug in the router first. Wait for all the lights to be stable then plug in the range extender. Your range extender should now be in synchronized with your router.

How to Fix Linksys Router Error 2118?

This seems to be a symptom of a configuration error, which can be fixed by resetting the router to factory default. Do this by finding the (often partially hidden) reset button on the device, and pressing and holding down the button, with the power on, till lights start flashing on the router. Let go of the button and allow the router to reset (can take a minute or two). You will now have reset the router to factory default. To connect to your ISP, you'll need to enter your account details (and any other specific information) provided to you by your ISP. You will also have to set a name and password for the wifi section of your router (if it has wifi) if you don't want it to be freely accessible by everyone within wifi range.
