Question about Computers & Internet
The power and pc/activity only light up, and i took all of the cables off and put them back on, and still the only those lights are on, and i try to turn off the modem but nothing happens.
If there is no network or internet activities it means either network is down from ISP, or there is a phone line cable or broadband filter problem, or broadband settings on modem are lost and must be reinstalled.

Most cable Internet Service Providers (ISP) use a
Media Access Control (MAC) Authentication to establish Internet
connections for end-users. A MAC address is assigned a unique 48-bit
(6-byte) integer that is attached to an Ethernet NIC for each computer.
To set-up your Linksys router to a Cable ISP, you have to do MAC
Cloning. MAC Cloning is a procedure which enables a router to copy the
MAC address of the PC that's registered with the ISP.
NOTE: Before proceeding, use the computer that can go online when connected to the modem and follow the steps below.
Connect the Broadband modem to the computer using an Ethernet cable without the router installed and make sure that the Internet connection is active. If it is not, contact your ISP. If it can go online, the PC connected to the modem is the one that's registered with the ISP.
NOTE: The image may vary depending on the computer and modem you're using.
Once an active Internet connection is established through the modem, connect the modem and the computer to the router by following the instructions below.
After ensuring that you have an active Internet connection, connect the modem to the router's Internet port and the computer to any of the four Ethernet ports.
The Linksys router's front panel will indicate the status of the connection. After connecting the broadband modem to the WAN or Internet port, the computer to an available numbered port and powering on the router check the lights on the front panel of the router. For instructions, click here.
Access the router's web-based setup page. For instructions, click here.
Go to the Setup - Network, click the drop-down arrow under the WAN Connection Type field and select Obtain an IP automatically for WAN1.
NOTE : If you are going to have another Cable Internet as well in WAN2, select obtain an IP automatically as well.
Click Save Settings.
Check in the System Summary if the router is getting a WAN1 IP or WAN2 IP.
NOTE: If there are no IP addresses seen in this field, go back to Setup then click the More option to reveal the MAC Clone settings.
Select MAC Address from this PC.
Click Save Settings Button.
Click System Summary. Check the value of the WAN1 or WAN2. If these have numbers, this means the router has been properly configured. You should now be able to access the Internet. If you're not online, perform a power cycle to synchronize the router with the modem.
NOTE: If the WAN1 IP or WAN2 IP is all zeroes (0.0.0.0) click first Release then click Renew buttons. If the WAN1 IP or WAN2 IP is still all zeroes (0.0.0.0) perform a power cycle.
If the IP Address starts with 192.168.1.xxx or if it has the same first three numbers (octets) as the router's IP address, change the router's LAN IP address to a different LAN segment.
Once the router is configured, perform a power cycle. Shutdown the computer and Unplug the router's power cable. Unplug the Broadband modem's power cable and wait for 30 seconds then plug in the Broadband modem's power cable and wait for its lights to appear stable. Plug in the router's power cable once the modem's lights appear stable.
Power on the computer on and test the Internet connection.
NOTE: If you're not online after performing this procedure, you may need to upgrade the firmware of the router. For instructions, click here .
