Cannot see net from my PC's

Wireless is fine. 2 pcs running internet.

2 comps ethernet hardwired. They list no connection present. (check wire)
Replaced wires.... NG.
Actiontec MI424 shows no lights for ethernet pc's.
front or back.
But if I plug in my HP networked printer....it lights on port 4 only.

My guess:
Something is turned off in the router settings.
And I cant find it.


Any idea's?


Thanks.

Have you tried holding the reset on the back of the router?

 

If you plug a computer into port 4, does it work?

RESET: Yes.  No difference.

 

Plugged in my laptop. Port 4 lite flashes... But, No internet connection though.

 

Plugged into ports 1 - 3  No flashing at all.

 

Thanks,

Tom

If the lights on the router do not come on at the ethernet connection, either the router is bad, or the cable from the router to the computer is bad, or one of the RJ45 plugs on either end of the cable is bad, or the female side of the plug in the NIC is bad, or the NIC is bad.   Since you are saying that 3 of the 4 ethernet ports have no lights when connected, it makes sense to believe that the router is bad.  Verizon will provide you with a new one.
