When this sort of thing happens the first thing to do is to go to a command prompt and type ipconfig /all. Do that and post the results.

But first try ping 127.0.0.1 and see what the produces. You could also try power cycling the router. It might just have got itself stuck as happens from time to time.

You need to go to a command prompt first. Press Run, then cmd. When the little black box appears type ipconfig /all,

Better still type ipconfig /all > config.txt

That will produce a file in the root of the C: drive that you can paste here.

Is this output of ipconfig /all, while you are connected to the router?
You first should give us an idea, how your devices are connected at this time.

I would suggest, that you connect the computer to the router and disconnect the cable box for that test.
Then run ipconfig /all and post this back.

The initial requester should always write the last response !!!

The IP address 173.19.16.210 is a public IP address belonging to your ISP, Mediacom Communications Corp of New York.

If you are gong through a router you shouldn't see this address in your computer, you should see a private address in the range 192.168.x.x. If your router was working correctly the Default Gateway and the DNS Server address should all be the same - the 192.168.1.1 address you are looking for.

This suggests to me that you have the Modem/Router wired incorrectly. Is the router plugged into the routers WAN port on not one of the LAN ports. There are four LAN ports but only one WAN port. The two sockets are the same but the WAN port should be separate from the 4 LAN ports.

Failing that the Router appears to be dead and is just passing the information from the modem straight through without doing anything with it.

This video might help you.

The yellow port should be used to connect to the internet. So if there is a dsl or cable modem, the yellow port should be connected to the lan port of the modem. The lan ports are used to connect things like PCs, xbox a.s.o.

Yes, you need to plug the Modem into the Yellow port. That's the WAN port. All other devices the use the Internet, computers, XBoxes and anything else plug into the blue LAN ports.

As long as you get an ip address at the computer of
173.19.16.210
you are not connected to the internet via router, but direct.
You must check the connections!
It must look like this:
PC --> Router (LAN port)
Router (WAN port) --> Modem (LAN port)
Modem (WAN or Cable or DSL port) --> Wall plug
