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?

Your ISP allows only one device to connect to their network.
When you change devices (router versus computer),
you need to power-off the ISP's modem, and unplug it.
Connect the router to the modem, and connect your computer to your router.
Plug the modem back in, and the modem will "forget" what device was previously connected.
Hello, If you already verified that your modem works if computer connected
directly to it, try powering down router and modem. Start modem first
and wait at least 2 minutes before starting router. if this doesn't help you will need to verify that your wired connection to router works first before you can attempt to use wireless.
With your computer connected to the router try to open router
setup page. Based on router type you should be able to access it from
browser using: http://192.168.1.1 or http://192.168.0.1 you will need to
login using default admin/admin account or according to router user
manual. Configuration page will allow you to verify if you have Internet
connection and configure other settings including wireless connection.
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.
Some ISPs (Internet Service Providers) limit you to *ONE* unique computer connected through the cable-modem (or DSL-modem).
Turn the cable-modem off.
Turn the router off.
Connect the cable-modem to the router, via an Ethernet cable to the 'WAN' port on the router.
Turn the cable-modem on.
Turn the router on.
Connect, via an Ethernet cable, from one of the 'LAN' ports on the router to your computer.
Restart your computer.
You should be OK.
If not, telephone your ISP, and get them to trouble-shoot from "their" end towards your end.
I would start my first rebooting the main modem. Once that is up, reboot the wireless router. Once that is uo, reboot the laptop. Try to connect.
If that does not work, eliminate the wireless router and connect the laptop directly to the modem via Ethernet cable and reboot the computer again and see if it works. If it does, then it is something with the wireless router. If it doesn't, i would contact the provider so they can verify that they can see your modem on their network. If they cannot, they will advise you further (hardware/cabling issue). This is all assuming that nothing has been changed on any settings of the laptop, router or modem.
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.

If you connect the computer to the modem , does it works ? If it works then modem is working. now connect the computer and modem to the router. open the set up page of the router. change the Internet settings according to the ISP. Click Here for more information about router and networks.
First: Connect your computer directly to the ADSL modem. It has an Ethernet port.
If you can't get to the Internet while your computer is connected directly to the modem, then ytour router never will either. Call ISP if you can't connect to the Internet when directly conencted to the modem. Next: Check your router wires again, The modem must be connected to the "special" port on the router. Look at the router. There is one port separated from the rest. Connect the modem to that port. Conenct to the Internet. Still no Internet?
Reset your router by pushing a stylus (straightened-out paperclip) into the reset "hole" on the router (with router powered ON).
Push & hold for 30 seconds or until the lights do their reset dance. Connect to the INternet.
