Right

That's right I was just getting concerned about all the cable swapping and router no router all the changes with out restarting things in the right order.

here is how I normally make changes

1. turn off PC
2. unplug power to modem
3. unplug power to router

now the exact order below is important

1. plug in power to modem
2. plug in power to router
3. turn on PC

Resetting the router won't help. If it's not compatible it's most likely not ever going to work correctly. I've been seeing these problems for months on end and the only clear resolution is to replace the router.

Hey I'm all for making old stuff work but in this case I fear you are only wasting your time. With the correct hardware setting up the network should be easy bussiness.

He's now back to XP and having the same problem so now it's not compatible with XP either?

If only it were that simple. I can tell you for sure that if your router isn't on the Windows 7 compatiblity list that it's very unlikely to work for you. The reason your router isn't working is because you messed with it.
A simple reset will fix it for XP, but as for Windows 7...I doubt it.

Been doing this a long time guys, since Jan, in fact. I'm pretty sure about this ok.

Router

I would try to do a reset on the router also you may check for a firmware update for the router as well.

Also in my opinion that's not the best router anyway.

i know, im not talking about windows 7 anymore, but resetting the router didn't fix the error in XP

dont talk about a bad router (i know :P, going to buy a new one pretty soon i guess)
also the sitecom website doesn't show the dc-202 anymore (and neither their firmware updates)
