Hi there! I'm not not really techy. I was looking for a customer support number for Tp-link but thought that this forum may be helpful since I can't find their number anywhere on the net. Im using a Tp-link wireless router and I have a modem attached to my pc. I just noticed that if I turn off my router, the Ethernet light on my modem turns off, but the power and dsl lights are still on. Is there a way for me to use my pc even if my router is turned off? If I remember right, i've tried it before and it worked... But now, I have to turn on my router just for me to be able to connect to the net on my pc.

Every router user manual I've ever looked at includes a customer support number for the company. Have you looked in the manual?

Could you be very specific about your network, beginning with your type of ISP?

Most cases, you should be able to plug the ethernet cable from the modem into the computer.
