unplug and/or reset your router. when it comes back up, reboot your
pc. try again.

if it still doesn't connect, try releasing and renewing the PC IP address.

well, resetting the modem should do that for you. and secondly, that's
why i suggested release/renew to help you in that direction as well.

assuming you are on win2k or XP, all you do for that is:
1. START/Run
2. Type CMD to open the console
3. type: ipconfig /release
4. type: ipconfig /renew
5. type ipconfig /all

this would at least show you exactly what IP your pc has, even after
renewing it. Do that and let us know what step 5 tells you. ;)

If you are currently accessing the internet via the same router, then there is nothing wrong with your settings or the router. You are probably typing in the wrong address for the router administration, or more likely you are not typing http:// in front of the router's IP number. That's why I asked what are you typing in for the address.

You need to include the http://

Lately I've learned not to assume anything. And since I have made that mistake before, it was the first thing that came to mind.

go start run and type CMD
once there type ping 192.168.1.1
if you get a response your talking to your router
then type IPCONFIG
your address should look like this
IP ADDRESS: 192.168.1.2
SUBNET MASK: 255.255.255.0
GATEWAY Address: 192.168.1.1
if that all looks correct then exit the command prompt
go to IE and type in the address bar 192.168.1.1 no I didn't forget the http:// because it is usually not needed. If it is still having problems then use a paper clip to reset your router, just remember to hold the reset for a few seconds till the lights on the front all blink off and back on. If that doesn't work hold the reset button down while you unplug it and plug it back in. Then you will be back to square one with the router. don't forget to release and renew your address. If your router is a D-link then the gateway address is 192.168.0.1 if it is a linksys then it is 192.168.1.1 if it is a netlux the gateway is 192.168.1.254. basically once you release and renew your address you will see what your gateway address is. Enjoy :D

OK -- one last small thought. Your router manual would have given you the address for the administration page. Double check it to make sure you have it right.

Other than that I'm out of ideas.

Thank you sir!

Yea sometimes all it needs is a good powercycle. We had been having troubles with routers in the past, and I just decided a few weeks ago to put my modem and router on a powerstrip separate from any of the computers, so it is on 24/7. Haven't had to reset since then!
