    My modem is connected to my router(Internet port) and my router(Port 1) is connected to the computer. The lights from port 1 lights up on the router. I opened my internet explorer,typed The web cannot be found.i guess that my computer cannot detect my router,or perhaps there's some setting that blocked it?because my newly brought laptop is able to connect to the internet,wireless or wired.

    Now it's either my computer or laptop have internet. I used USB cable to connect my modem to computer directly since it can't detect my router.

    I am not a IT person,so I hope someone will babysit me and get my internet done.

    1. Check if the network card (TCP-IP enabled) is available on your computer and also if the connection is ''on'' between the router and the computer. Ethernet cable ok?
    2. Maybe the router's adress is changed (you have to input smth else as adress)?
    3. Try also with Firefox (if you tried only with IE) to open the router's adress

    When you plugged the router into the cable modem, did you then unplug the modem and then turn it back on? Some modems need to be "kicked" when they have a new device plugged into them.

    You mention that you can't get to Have you tried something like (Amazon) or (Google)?

    Have you tried doing a hard reset of the router? There should be information on how to do this in the manual. It's possible that you got the router into some strange state.

    didn't know anything about this.

    Hard reset basically means pressing the reset button and the router is set back to default?yea,i did it once.
