The internet doesnt seem to work through my DI-604 d-link router

I am trying to connect two computers to the internet through the router and its not working. I had it connected in the last place I lived in so Im not sure what the problem is. Can someone please help me with this?


One of my computers has windows xp operating system. The other one is a linux operating system. I go through shaw. SB5100 surfboard cable modem. All the lights go green except the pc activity which is orange and the standby light which is not lit up.

Use this link if you don't have it. From it you can download TFM. It will have directions.


If you have directions you should go to the router setup page, and use the wizard. If not go through the routers setup pages until you find select your internet connection type (WAN) and use the online help.
