No Network Connection

    I'm trying to set up a Linksys SRX400 Router, but get an error message that there is no network connection. When I take the cable and replug it back to the modem and computer directly, it works fine, but the minute I plug the modem cable to the router and PC cable to the router, I lose my connection. I tried using different cables, but no luck. Can anyone tell me what I'm doing wrong? (The internet light on the router is flashing when the router is connected to the modem)

    I presume by network connection you mean the network connection between the router and the modem?

    Yes, when I connect the cable modem to the router and PC to router, I lose my internet connection.

    Try cloning your PC's network adapter MAC Address to the router and save the change.

    I was finally able to make a connection after reseting to factory defaut and it worked fine for a few hours, but the PC was turned off and when it was turned on a few hours later, the internet connection was lost again. (I should also note that when I first connected this router, it worked fine for a day, but the next day there was no connection.) There must be something in the set up that I must have done wrong, but I don't know what it is.

    I would greatly appreciate any help in resolving this issue.

    Have you cloned your PC's network adapter MAC Address to the router again after the factory reset?

    Yes, the MAC address Clone radio button is clicked on Enable and I still cannot connect to the internet. When I re-set the router, it does connect momentarily, but then lose connection again. (When I re-set, all I'm changing from the default settings are to set WPA encryption, changing the SSID, re-naming the router and password.) Would any of these cause the router to no be able to speak to the computer?

    To reverify you are speaking strictly about the router to modem connection right? Because from your last post it sounds like you are talking about the computer to laptop connection and that causing the internet issue not the router to modem.
