I have a US Robotics 8054 access point and router. I connected the router to the modem. And the I am able to access the internet from my laptop. However, I connected my computer to the router with a ethernet cable. But I cannot access internet through the computer. The computer shows that it is connected to the router but has no access to the internet. But it works fine with the wireless laptop. Also, when I directly connect the modem to the computer, I am able to access the internet. Please tell me what could be the problem. Help me!! It's been days since I have been facing this problem.

Try power cycling the system. Turn everything off and in this sequence turn them back on, Start with the Modem and wait for the lights to turn solid, then turn on the router and wait about 2 minutes for it to boot, then turn on the computer.
