|I do have one other suggestion. Do you have any friends who get their internet from the same provider and have a SOHO router at home? |
If you do, take your Linksys router over to their house, reset it to factory defaults, and then try it at their house. If you still can't get it to work, then it has to be the router. If it does work, then you are doing something wrong at your own home.
I suggested a while back contacting your ISP, did you try that yet? I don't know where you live but most of the ISP's where I live have support people who have experience setting up most of the more well known SOHO Routers.
If you haven't contacted your ISP yet, do that first, then take the router to a friend's house if that's an option for you.
It matters not how straight the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate;
I am the captain of my soul.
