Mmmkay, so I try to hook up my wireless router, it's a linksys router (The one with the blue plate on the front and such. Black antenea on the back... yeah...) and as soon as I plug in the power, all my internet lights come up. When I plug the ethernet cable from my cable modem to the router, and then the other ethernet cable from the router to my modem, it's not connected. Can anyone offer any insight on this?

Dunno, you probably have to edit the router settings to tell it what type of connection you have.

Have you read the instructions?

Did you try the reset button?
Edit: this often solves problems such as intermitten errors

You have to log onto the Router Configuration Web Page and set it up first. You connect your PC to Port one (LAN side) and via Explorer, use the designated Web IP address in your manual in Explorer's address bar. For D-LINK it's 192.169.0.1 but I'm not sure about LinkSys or others.
Moving on.....

I tried that, but I have no connection. It just takes me to the "This page cannot be displayed" crap. It doesn't give me any connection at all, it doesn't even say that my router is connected to my pc, which I think it's supposed to... *Is clueless about technology*

Your computer doesn't know there's a router there, it's not a computer device, it works on its own.

If the router is plugged into your computer you should be able to access the router settings by typing the IP of the router into a browser address bar.
