The router, a linksys, became unplugged, so I plugged into directly into the modem for a bit. After the router's power was restored, I re-inserted my connection into the router, and now my internet refuses to connect me, no matter what I plug into. Every diagnostic test says that my computer is fine. I have uninstalled and reinstalled my drivers, the Local Area Connection say its connencted. I changed the TCP/IP settings for DNS from automatic to use the mains computers codes. I have tried repair. I've attempted various wire variations, and everything on the router and dsl modem look fine, nothing should have changed in just two hours. Everything looks fine, as it was before the router became unplugged, and i moved my connection, but when I try to connect to the internet or any online service it is unable to do so.

Running XP
IE 6.0
Verizon DSL, Linksys router
I can't think of anything that might have prompted this error, especially since the main computer is fine, this had only happened while I was gone for two hours, and no one else uses my computer.

Hi and welcome go Geeks to Go. I would try re-loading the router configurations file (config.bin).
