I have a Linksys 'Etherfast Cable/DSL Router with 4-Port Switch', model no. BEFSR41. I have a Windows XP/Ubuntu 8.04 DUal-boot toshiba laptop and a Ubuntu 8.04-only Acer Aspire Desktop.

I can get internet on both computers when not plugged into the Linksys router; but when I plug my computers into the router--neither of them can get online; or even access the cable modem's status page.

Help please?

to get into the cable modem, open a browser and type 192.168.0.1

if that does not work consult the manual or go to the cable providers web page to find out how.

When you say "I can get internet on both computers when not plugged into the Linksys router" I take it you're going straight to your modem with them. It appears your router needs configured. Follow the above instructions to gain access to your router and get it configured.
