    My Internet cable is rj45. If i connect that cable directly to my pc, and set up the connection (PPPoe, requires a username and pass), i can access the internet.
    then i bought a tp-link wr841n router which has a Wan (rj45) i/p socket.
    and i ran the tp-links setup software, configured the router with the username and pass, but still it wont connect to the internet.
    and help please ?

    Possibly your ISP is tracking the MAC Address of the device connected. Clone the MAC Address of your computer to the router's WAN (the router will have an option to do that--often automatically).

    If that doesn't work, what IP address is assigned to your computer when it has internet access (just give the first two parts if you are concerned about posting the entire address)?

    I assume the modem as been rebooted?

    I would also recommend the MAC Cloning if the ISP is holding onto that information.
