I am a little clueless but I have been attempting to search the forum and find a solution but have been unsuccessful. So here's my problem. Cable modem stopped working this morning so went out and got a new one. Both modem and router are linksys. The router is wireless but also has ports for hard connections. I can not access the internet at all now. The only way I can get on is to connect 1 of my 3 computers (the other two don't work this way) directly to the cable modem. When the modem is hooked to the router, the wireless is active and has a signal but doesn't have internet. The same problem occurs when i run a ethernet cord from the router to a computer. None of the computers work in this regard. I have been attempting to get the other computers working on a direct connection to the modem but I have been unsuccessful. I have replaced my winsock already. initially the problem seemed to be that the nonworking computers had an internal IP address. In addition the repair function for the LAN didn't work. however I have fixed that problem by manually entering the ip address. At this point i have no clue what to do. everything is working with my ISP so the problem is on my end. I have tried a new router too with just a wireless function, but once again I get a signal but no access. Appears to be a computer program rather than modem/router problem. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.
