Linksys WRT160N router not detecting internet

Linksys Wrt160n wireless router

Specs: Windows 7
I have a Linksys WRT160N wireless router that out of the blue stopped detecting internet. I had a Roku player wired to it and my Toshiba laptop wireless. The internet connection itself is fine for I can plug the computer directly into the modem with no problems. I have already tried unplugging it, reseting the factory settings, and changing the MTU setting on the router page. My computer connects to the router, but not the router to internet. What else can I do short of dropping it out the window? lol

Easy, easy !!!
Close the window :-)

Check the log of the router in it's web interface for hints on not connecting to the internet.
Is the data for authentication at your ISP correct configured in the router?
Also check, whether the router gets a public ip address of your ISP in the routers web interface.

Thanks for the reply. After a lot of fiddling around with the settings and the networking program that came with the router, I finally got everything working wirelessly. I couldn't even tell you exactly what I did, but it all seems to be working now. Thanks
