Plug your cable directly into the modem. Then try it. If that doesn't work, plug your cable back into the router, and the router back into the cable modem. On the back of the linksys router their should be a tiny blackish gray button/dot, over it will be the word, "RESET". You will need a pen or or needle or nail to poke it as it's indented in. If you hit it the buttons on the front should start blinking. This tends to do wonders for me, and hitting this button generally tends to fix any problems i have with my linksys router. Ahh, the magical reset button.
