.........................how do I get it back online? I'm not even connected to a network at all. Why does it say I'm offline?

I got the IP address and the fuckin router still won't connect

Now, for some strange reason, every time I open the internet it says I'm working offline. How the fuck do I get that turned off? Whenever I go to someone's Myspace, for some strange reason it says I have to connect again or some shit like that.

Whenever I click on my cousin's myspace, or anyone elses, it says
"Dial-up connection

connect to (drop box with "broadband connection" inside)

check box next to the words "connect automatically"

then there's 3 things for me to click all next to each other. They say:
Connect, Settings, and Work Offline"

then something comes up that says

"Connecting Through WAN Miniport (PPPOE)"

I really have no clue what I did when I tried to set up the router, and if anyone can help me, please do. I'd appreciate it.

Vista or XP?

Open up network connections... Has the router worked in the past?

Re-boot the modem, computer, router, etc...

If that doesn't fix it, I hear a 5.56 mm is the final solution.

It sounds like the router could be set for connect on-demand instead of maintaining a connection at all times.

There's a work offline choice in Internet Explorer.

In IE7, its under TOOLS.

Your computer is evil and it's trying to kill you.

I got Vista. The router worked for like a day, then I turned it off and it stopped working. I'll try to re-boot the modem later.
