    My fiance and I have moved into a new apartment complex where cable and internet are provided. Because we didn't actually "move in" on the first day of our lease the modem/cable box were left in our apartment for us. Now 2 weeks later I am attempting to set them up and it's not functioning properly. I've got the coaxial cable running into the modem (which I was told also contains the router) and the power is on. Everything is lit up and working, but there is no wireless network. We have connected with an ethernet and the internet is working that way, but the wireless is non existent. We have gone into the router set up by putting the ip into the address bar and changed the passwords and name of the network as well thinking that might help, but no luck so far.

    Tldr: Modem part of modem/router seems to be working, but no device can see any network from the router.

    Any help anyone could provide would be greatly appreciated.

    Maybe there is a setting for Enabling the WiFi. What is the brand and model number of the modem (look for a sticker on the bottom) . I will try to lookup the manual for you.

    On the Wireless > Basic Settings screen, there is an Wireless ON/OFF switch. Check that it is ENABLED. Wireless mode should be 11B/G/N Mixed. Chanel should be AUTO. Hidden should be disabled.

    On the Wireless IP settings screen, set Enable WiFi DHCP to ENABLE.

    Did you do any configuration on the Filter Setting screen? If so, remove any MAC & ip addresses specified and try again.

    All of those are set that way.

    Go to Control Panel > Device Manager > find your network adapter and right click choose Update.

    I would also suggest resetting to defaults, to make sure there is nothing that could be blocking it. Looks like you need a paper clip to hold the reset button in for at least 10 seconds or longer (usually when all lights go out). You can also reset it via the website by going to WAN/LAN > Backup > Factory Reset.
