Need help with adding a router to an existing Uverse setup

Need help with adding a router to an existing Uverse setup

Hello - long story but I will try to keep it short. I need to add a router to my computers built-in Ethernet port. I use Uverse wireless for Internet - my Dell has both the wireless and the built-in Ethernet ports. Once the router is connected I loose the Internet. If I hover my pointer over the wireless connection it states I am connect and that I have wireless Internet but the Browser just stalls and will not load.

 

I have tried two different routers and the result is the same.

 

Why ????????????

You are not setting up ICS.  ICS Service has to be 'Enabled' in Manual mode in Services.msc, in order for this to work.  If it is off, it will not work with Windows 7/8.


I run a laptop running Windows 7 with a wired connection to a robot and one of two different wireless connections all the time without any ICS service.
