Modem will not work after installing a router

The problem is my parents have highspeed and everything was working perfectly fine until my dad tried to hook up a router to connect his second computer. All he did was plug it in. About a hour or so after plugging the router in the modem shut down. Now the dsl and internet light will not come on the modem. The power and ethernet light does come on. They contacted their provider and they sent them a new modem. They are having the same issue with the new modem. My dad had unplugged the router and tried resetting the modem and still no internet or DSL light. Could someone give me some suggestions or solutions on what to do about that problem? Thank you

My Rangemax wireless wndr3000 is not working properly, though it has in the past. The problem seems to be that I'm hooked up to the wireless network (ex. I can print wirelessly), but with no internet....


Same situation here. Wired connection from modem works fine. I can also log in to the router via routerlogin.net. However, the router does not detect an internet connection.

Problem with network


Make sure the physical connections are correct. Modem connected to the Internet Port of the router and your PC to port number 1 on the Linksys router as well. Try to reset the router. Hold the reset button at the back of the router for about 20 seconds. After that, unplug the power to the router and to the cable modem. Wait for 30 seconds. Plug the modem first, wait for the lights to stop blinking then plug in the router. Check if the internet works fine again.

Belkin router problems with RCA modem


Do a powercycle. Make sure to completely turn off the modem, router, after 30 seconds, turn on the modem first then the router.
If that will still not work, perhaps there is a need to update the software of your router.
