Belkin FSD7230-4 router, Verizon DSL 3 steady green lights on Westell modem,but no internet connection

Small home network. Replaced Linsys router that was working but would exhibit similar behavior intermittently. I have Verizon DSL, a Belkin FSD7230-4 router, with a Westsll modem that  has three steady green lights on it  but still no Internet connection. I can access the router's web based interface. I have bounced all the hardware five or six times. Verizon says they don't support Belkin routers. Not very Network savy. Any recomendations and or links to tutorials would be appreciated.

First try to connect directly with a PC to the DSL modem.  Make sure your PC is protected with up-to-date antivirus and a personal firewall (software).  Check to see that you have a link light.  Open a command window and make sure you are getting a DHCP IP address, subnet mask, gateway and DNS server assigned by running the "ipconfig /all" command (windows XP) or "Winipcfg" (win98).  It should be a public address.  You should be able to get on to the Internet.  The Verizon implementations that I have worked with do not require any authentication.

Once you are able to connect with a PC you can move on to te next step of getting the router working.

Also, make sure you have your DSL "filters" installed on all of your other phone lines.  This step is often overlooked and can cause erratic behavior.

Refund/PAQ
I resolved the issue myself. I re-ran the setup precedure on the Belkin router and it's been working ever since. Thanks to netspec01 for your input.
