router connects to cable modem but not to internet

By otwelmr ·
I have cable internet which worked previously with a wireless router and two home computers. The router and modem were unplugged recently and plugged into a power strip. After this, I cannot get to the internet from either computer via wireless or wired connection to the router. The modem seems to be working fine, so says the cable guy who came out to test it. I finally got the computer to connect to the internet if plugged directly into the modem, but still nothing from the router. The odd thing is that from either computer via wireless connection, I can login to either the router and I can also log in to the modem. I would think that if there were a problem with the router I would not be able to do this. I have spent nearly 5 hours on this problem so far and would like to try any suggestions. Both computers are running Win XP home. The router is a Linksys WRT54G. Please help.
