  3. Check the power supply.
  4. Check your LAN indication light on router is turned on ( mostly it will be green )
  5. If LAN indication is not showing, issue is with the connection between router and computer.
  6. Check the DSL indication lamp on router is turned on.
  7. If the DSL is not steady or turned on, then the issue with the connection between ISP server and modem. ( Then call your ISP customer care immediately )
  8. If all these things working properly, then its the time for checking your computer.

  11. If the ping is successful, then check your antivirus & firewall options ( and do a trial and error attempt by turning off and on )
  12. Check your network connection properties and check your default gateway, DNS servers and Ip address configurations are correct or not.
