Trouble connecting to internet


Trouble connecting to internet

Hey guys, new to the forum and Im hoping I can find some help here.

So in the last year we upgraded our router to an Motorola NVG510 and also purchased a new computer, an Asus Desktop. The initial plan was to connect wirelessly via PCI card we installed in the computer because it would be in another room; but, now we were hoping to connect it via Ethernet cable.


So Heres the problem:

We connect the ethernet cable to the NVG510 port and the computer's port and nothing.


I've tried poking around but I havent found anything on this issue, so any help would be appreciated. Thank you so much.

There are two types of cables, the straight thru is one you want, the other is a crossover, suspect what you have.

Re: Trouble connecting to internet

When you plug the cable into the ethernet jack on the computer NIC do you get any lights?  Should get at least a green link light.  If it's flashing that means the NIC has activity.  You will also see another LED that will be either lit solid green (connected at 100Mbs), Yellow (connected at 1000Mbs), or off (connected at 10Mbs)


If you don't try changing ports on the AT&T Router.  Could be a bad port on the router itself.


Could also be as MT suggested and a bad or wrong cable.
