    after plugging into wireless router internet doesnt work?
    so im trying to plug my ethernet cable from my cable modem to my router and then another ethernet cable into my mac but after i do that the internet doesnt work. pages wont load and adium and other instant messengers wont connect and even when airport is connected to my wireless router it the internet doesnt work so i plugged it back in from my cable modem just directly to my mac for now.

    can anyone help me with this problem? im using a netgear 108 mbps wireless firewall router WGT624 v2

    I am not sure how much you know about Routers so i am going to remind you that the cable between modem and router must go into the wan port on the router. And usually routers have some sort of web based app that will allow you to set up your internet account so the router knows how to communicate with the modem. If you haven't done this your router will likely not work.

    If you have done all this then i am not the right person to ask.

    Have you logged into the router and checked to be sure the WAN settings have not changed? If you enter the IP address of the router into a Web Browser, can you log into it?
