    Hi, my problem is that i can't connect to the internet through the linksys router anymore. My uncle came to my house and changed some stuff on my computer including hooking up my computer directly to the cable modem leaving my router completly useless. So after he left i tried connecting the ethernet cables back to the original order. One from the Router to the cable modem and another from the router to my PC. After a while the Network connections says i have connected, but with limited or no connectivity. On the Linksys router the LED light where i inserted the ethernet cable into was lit in my case the number 1 slot.

    Any suggestions?
    Thanks in advance.

    disconnect the power & cable from cable modem for 10 seconds then reconnect. i do that all the time when installing routers on customers' computers. it works.
