  1. If this is a cable router and it has picked up settings from modem or adsl router, then try setting a static i.p on pc, sometimes dhcp fails.

    Settings for pc nic ..

    I.P = 192.168.0.2 or 192.168.1.2 <== or an i.p on same i.p range of router/modem
    Subnet = 255.255.255.0
    Gateway = 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1 <== routers i.p
    DNS = 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1 <== routers i.p

    Open command prompt as admin, and type ping 192.168.x.1 (gateway i.p)
    Should give you 4 replies, if it works, your home network is ok.

    If not, could be firewall or a setting on router, need more info on network setup.
  2. It would help if the description was in the desciption field and not cut off in the title...
