Default WNDR3400 V2 N600 will not recognize internet connection

I just bought a WNDR3400 V2 N600 Wireless Dual Band Router to provide wireless for my newly purchased smart TV. I followed the enclosed instructions for connecting the router to the modem and the pc to the router but was not able to connect to the internet. The setup genie says "there is no ethernet cable attached" and the router itself doesn't display a lit-up "internet light." The ethernet cable is connected and the cable has been tested to make sure it works without the router. I've tried multiple power-cycle methods, unhooked everything, rehooked everything, called my ISP, and even gone back to the store for another router...Still the light stays dark and the router gets no internet signal. I'm beginning to think this product simply doesn't work and preparing to return it again and just buy a ethernet hub and hardwire my TV to the internet. I've read multiple posts on the net, including many at this site and haven't found any hellp. If anybody out there has a suggestion I"m all ears.

I took it out of the box and plugged it in like the instructions told me to. I didn't mess around with any of the other settings. My ISP doesn't require me to log in and I don't have a static IP, I just plug my ethernet cable into my computer from my modem, so I shouldn't have had to change any settings for the router.

So the bottom line is you didn't even configure the router to login to your ISP by following the instructions. Please follow the instructions provided with the router and connect to your ISP by either Cable or DSL connection.

I bought my wndr3400 yesterday and had a connection for a brief time but no longer. I don't recall any instructions about configuring the router for my ISP. Where are they? I called tech support and they didn't mention it. Why might that be?

Well I found this on a signature that you need to follow.

Or you can read all about the router and how to install if from the host of information and manuals on this site.
