Setting it up to do what, exactly?

Do you have an internet connection? Cable or adsl?

How many pcs are you trying to connect? What are their operating systems?

Do you have any instructions for it?

Thank you for that. I think it best if we go step by step.

1. Can you access the internet if you connect one of your pcs to the adsl modem directly?

If you can't, your modem is set up wrongly and you must first fix that.

2. Enable the modem's DHCP server. What addresses is it giving out?

3. If you can, disconnect the pc from the modem, connect it to the router and turn on the router. Do not connect the router to the modem. Your router's instructions will tell you the IP address of the router's set-up pages. Put that address into your browser and click Go. Can you access the router's setup page?

4. If you can access the router's set-up pages, disable the router's DHCP server and set the router's IP address to a number close to the modem's IP address e.g. if the modem is set the router to; if the modem is 912.168.0.254, set the router to Write down the number you have set.

5. Connect the router to the modem again. If you input the mode's IP address can you log on to the modem's setup pages? Can you now log on to the internet?

Let us know if any stage doesn't work.
