Here we go again. I thought I bookmarked the answer the last time this came up, but if so, I can't find it. I moved my modem and router to a better location for WiFi and it's not working like it should.

I have an older desk top computer that I mostly use for the internet. It's been set up before with modem connected to the cable internet, router connected to the modem and to the computer. If I plug the modem directly into the computer, I have internet access. If I connect the router to the modem and computer, I don't have internet access.

It seems like it was something pretty easy that fixed it last time, but I don't remember what it was. I've turned everything off and on in the right order several times. Lynksys EA6350 router.

Thanks in advance for any help.
