Yesterday I went into my D-Link router settings and noticed some of them did not display. I tried doing a reset to my Router and that's when all the trouble started. After rebooting the computer I noticed that it would not connect to the internet. So I tried unplugging the router and plug it back in but that did not work. I then unplugged the cable modem and back in but that did not work either. I thought well I have another wireless router that I should hook up since the wired one has been used for a long time but that would not connect me either. I went to my network settings and noticed that one of the items was no longer there. I cannot remember what it said. So I tried running the network wizard again and that did not help. I tried the find new hardware wizard and that did not help. I have gone into "Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) and tried both Obtain IP Address Automatically and "Use the following IP address" which I had put and as Subnet Mask and rebooted the system both times. I checked device manager and there is no conflicts. I plugged my LAN line direct to the modem and it works fine which is how I am able to type in this forum. I then tried to do a system restore but did not revert any network settings back. Today I was going to do a Windows repair but when it load the files and devices, my usb keyboard is not found or working.
I am at a loss of what to try next. I even tried using a different cable for the WAN connection. So here are the things I have. Windows XP PRO SP2. Dell Intel Core Duo 2 2.99 GHz with 2.95 GB RAM - under that it says Physical address Extension. My Router is a D-Link DL-604 and the other one i tried is a DL-514.
Any help would be extremely appreciated.

So you have proved that the modem is working fine when you plug directly into it.
I think you will find that address is the default address of the router.
Your computer TCP/IP should be set up to obtain TCP/IP settings automatically,
that is the router is supplying the IP address.
and the Gateway should be set to

Can you ping the router, open a cmd prompt and type in the window,
if successful will respond some like this

You can then use your web browser to access the router by typing
Use "admin" for user name no quotes, and leave password blank

Good luck

The old saying "If it aint broke, don't fix it" is sometimes very true.
