Try setting up just one pc with the router after you reset it. Check all the lights are working. make sure if you have a firewall on pc that it is off temporarily. set the machine for DHCP as this will be default on the router. If you get a LAN connection try pinging the router if not check cables. Also check the lights network card on pc. If you still can't connect see if you can send it back
