As recommended I would connect your computer Ethernet port directly to the modem, cycle power on the modem then go to "network connections" on your PC. Look at your LAN interface and check the TCP/IP properties. Make sure that both the IP address and DNS are both set to automatic. Then go back and see what IP address has been assigned to the port. It should be a public IP that is assigned by your phone company. You can also check it by going to the command prompt and typing ipconfig/all. You need to get this working before anything else.
Once that is working then connect up your system like you described. Turn on the modem first, and then the router. The router is initially set up as a DHCP server and should automatically assign a private IP address like (192.168.1.101) with a subnet mask of 255.255.255.0. Again look at the Ethernet port status to verify that.
If you still can't get an internet connection after getting to this point you need to look at your internet settings.
I can only connect to the internet using the USB port from the modem to the computer.
I read where I need to change the modem to brdige mode by typing in http://192.168.1.1. Supposedly the user is admin and the password is password. When I put that in it asks me if I really want to change the password.then I keep getting that screen.
I am feeling really stupid and frustrated. And I've had a headache for 2 days.
