What windows version are you using?

Go to networking and see if 1) the connection is enables and 2) if the connection to the router is configured properly, in XP you can just click repair and the settings should be automatic.

Have you used the setup disk that came with it?

is your ethernet card working properly?

The disc wasn't much help for me, just had a manual on it if I remember right.

Have a look in the tools, internet options in internet explorer, and the connection tab I think (I'm currently on a limited version of internet explorer so I can't get to the settings). Check you're set to connect to the internet via LAN. I think there's a button to do that, which opens the properties, you shouldn't need to assign IP's or DNS at the moment, but you can do that later if you need to.

Tools --> Internet Options --> Connections Tab --> At the bottom, Lan Settings --> Check Auto Detect only, clear all other boxes.

Also on the connections tab, select "Never Dial a Connection".

Good luck, post back & let me know how you get on.

Turn off any firewall that you may have until you can connect to the router. Also, is this router brand new? (Even if you have brought it from Dabs it may be second hand as mine was!!) if in any doubt reset the router to factory defaults (there should be a switch / button on the unit to do this) Then try again. Personally, I would think that it is a firewall problem.
