    Here is my problem: I have been running my computer wired to a Linksys BEFW11S4 and then to my dsl modem. I have another computer connected wirelessly to the router. I just bought a new router to replace the current one. When I went to set it up I couldnt accuire an IP address with the new router in place. Then I connected the modem directly to my computer without any router and I still couldnt get an ip address. I tried releasing and renewing the ip but in IPCONFIG it still shows no ip address. If I hook up everything to the old router my internet works fine.
    If anyone could help me out I would appreciate it.

    Heres what IPCONFIG shows with the old router (the configuation the works) in place.

    Most modems will only connect to the MAC address that they are connected to when they are powered up. To get them to connect to new hardware (differenct MAC address), they have to be powered down, left off for a few seconds (60, to be safe), and then powered up while connected to the new hardware. Try that with your new router.
