Is there a way to connect my home desktop PC directly to ethernet cable, while still having wifi around the house?

is your router connected to your PC first of all, if yes then just connect the router to your pc,i.e., the modem in no way should be connected to your pc or to your router, then try accessing !

router is connected to my pc via ethernet cable. i will upload some pics in a second. not sure how useful it will be, but worth a shot.

firefox i have had a Dlink wireless router two months back it wouldnt connect when through chrome, but firefox worked fine, download and try , it that doesnt work then go to cmd type ipcongif and check for default gateway and IPv4 address and i am assuming that your router in no way is connected to your modem

Ah appears to be a cable connection , setup is all perfect check on firefox and then tell!

yeah firefox doesn't work either. not sure why .. Also, if upgrading firmware doesn't fix the issue, is buying a new router my final option?

ok i have one more solution, this should work, press the reset button on your router which should probabaly be at the bottom, then disconnect your router from the 'modem', then connect your router only to you pc via ethernet cable , then enter 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.0.1 over on the firefox once the router is up and running, if the login screen appears, good the next step ill tell you if the above works, if this doesnt work ur router is messed up then

Okay sweet, resetting router fixed it. Now where exactly do I download the proper firmware? it keeps saying I have the improper file or something when I try to upload firmware. dlink website only has firmware for revisions A H and D. I have revision C lol..

The TP-Link Archer C7 is a solid pick.
