    Well here's the story ,
    I had my router upstairs and it was connected to a coaxial cable cord and I had my lap top downstairs connected to it and had no problems. I recently moved the router down stairs to the first floor so i could hook up an Ethernet cable from my ps3 into the router. The router is still plugged into a (different) cable jack with a coaxial cable but I get no connection. The sending light blinks for 5 minutes and then it resets its self , and then the sending light just blinks again. While the online light is dead. I've tried unplugging it , and I've also disconnected all of the wires from it. But still no connection. I'm also trying to run two coaxial wires (one from cable box and one from router) into a two way coaxial cable splitter and I still don't get any connection with that either. Any help would be greatly appreciated

    What did you move from one place to another--a router, a modem, both, a modem/router combo? What's the brand and model of the device(s) you moved?

    It sounds like you moved the modem (or router/modem combo unit), and that doesn't always work. Not all cable outlets are active or configured for use with a modem. You may need to have the cable installer out to set up that jack, but they may only allow one jack for the modem.
