Sounds like an IP clash. Has the "anything" you're trying to connect previously been used for Internet Connection Sharing (in which case disable ICS).

Also check TCP/IP Properties. Start, Connect To, Connection, Properties, Scroll Down TCP/IP and highlight, click Properties and check that Obtain DNS and IP address automatically are enabled.

Has a fixed IP address been set in the router.

none of the computers ive tried have been used for Internet Connection Sharing... And they are all set up to obtain DNS and IP address automatically...

I haven't changed anything in the router so everything there should still be factory defaults....

Connect computer to router by ethernet cable. Go Start, All Programs, Accessories, Command Prompt and at the black and white cursor type IPCONFIG /ALL . In the results you should see the router's IP address next to the word gateway.

If no joy try the reset button on the router. The default IP address for many routers is 192.168.0.1 or 1.1
