Did you login to the router settings to see if it reported any issue?

Did you connect the router via the wan port to the modem? did you use the setup wizard in the router to tell it needs to be on dhcp?

Is your modem just a modem and a new router would take time to get a valid ip from your ISP?

 

Questions questions questions... if only there was some more info to work with :D

Depends on the settings, if the Router has DHCP on then the cable should be connected to the designated internet/wan port on the device.

Also it could be that the range on you modem is different than what your router creates, this could also hinder your internet connection.

 

you can:

-set your Modem to Bridge mode and let your Router provide the IP addresses.

-Disable DHCP on your router and test it this way, ( note that the Internet/Wan port should not be used then)

How about answering the rest of the questions. What model is the modem. How is the router connected to it. And did you use the wizard in the router to set it up and if so how?

DHCP is a function that assigns a IP number to every device so it knows which device asks what.

you'll have to login into your device using the settings on the back

Okay, in that basic setup did you specify DHCP or something else?

The important question here we still need to know is if your "modem" is acting simply as a modem, or is it configured as a router?  I'd suspect the latter.

 

Were you previously plugging your PC directly into the modem?  Have you logged into the modem to see what it says in there?

 

If the modem is in router mode then generally you don't want to be using an extra router also in router mode, you want the modem in bridge mode or to use the router just as a WiFi Access Point and network switch.


Router: i5-7200U appliance running pfSense.
ISP: Zen Unlimited Fibre 2 (66Mbit) + Plusnet Unlimited Fibre Extra. (56Mbit)
