      How is the PC connected to the router?

      Wireless? Wired?

      Can you access the router pages?

      http://192.168.0.1

      Username: admin
      Password: sky

      Can you access that?

      Re: Can't get on the internet! Help!

      I would check:

      That there is a light on the router with the relevant port number, i.e. if the network cable is in port one of the router that the number 1 light is on.

      Also check that the light is on on the back of the PC where the network cable plugs in.

      Confirm this for us so we can try something else.

      Right click on my computer and then choose properties, look for Device manager and then look for Network Controllers or similar.

      See if there is a yellow exclamation mark and indeed there is a network device listed. It sounds like it is a problem with the PC

      You could also go to Control Panel and then choose Network Connections, then right click on Local Area Connection and see if it gives you the option to enable.

      Re: Can't get on the internet! Help!

      Go to a command prompt, by clicking on Start, find accessories, then choose Command Prompt.

      This should open a DOS box.

      Type in:

      ipconfig /flushdns

      then hit enter.

      And then try the

      http://192.168.0.2 in your browser again.
