The router is not the issue---we need to know what your actual internet connection is---eg DSL, cable, dial-up.

Assuming that there is a working connection, then how is the router setup--eg DHCP or static IP? Typically, you would get to the router config page by entering 192.168.1.1 into a browser window.

Tell us as much as you can about the configuration, and we can be more help.
