Wireless computers in my house can connect to the Linksys WRT150N, but not the internet.

The Linksys is attached to a modem and I have tried an alternative cable that I know works (I'm using it here now as well as that modem, so they're fine)).

I have done a Factory reset. I have loaded a previously saved configuration file. I've pressed the reset button on the back, which worked as the password went back to the default.

I've tried 2 computers with the same result, both of which had no changes to them since last successful connection.

Is there anything else I should try before replacing the unit so I can again connect to the internet?

Thanks.

Is the ethernet light on the WRT or the modem on? Do they have activity lights going? From the WRT web interface can you ping the Modem?

I'll check this when I get home tonight. I seem to remember that the ethernet light was on though, but need to double-check.

I can't remember seeing a "ping the modem" option in there and wouldn't know how to do this otherwise.

Thanks.

Well well, after some mucking around I've found that if I have my modem connected to the wireless router via an ordinary ethernet port on the WRT, the internet goes. But if I plug it back into the "Internet" port on the WRT, which is where it's supposed to go (and always was), the internet doesn't go.
