Re: connected??

The best thing to do would be to contact your Internet provider to be sure. There are a couple things you can check on your own that can help you determine this. When you use your DSL or Cable modem without the Router how does it work? Do you not have to assign any IP addresses or DNS settings to get it working? If so, that is a Dynamic IP Address setup. If you have go to into the TCP/IP settings and specify the IP address and the DNS settings that is a Static IP Address setup. If you have to click on an icon that goes through a connection process that uses a User name and Password, that is a PPPoE IP address setup. Once you are able to determine that you should be able to follow the instructions in the user manual.

Im trying hook up a wireless router and it ask what kind of conection I have static ip ect... How do I know what I have? Im using DSL.

Most residential subscriber services use dynamic IP addressing. Dynamic IP addressing is automatic from your Internet Service Provider (ISP). Linksys home based products such as the one you have should be setup up for this configuration out of the box by default, and require no adjustments to the IP configuration of the wireless router.

You should power down the DSL modem and Linksys, then connect them, then reapply power. This will clear the DSL modem if it was connected to another device such as a PC. This is important as most cable and DSL modems use something called MAC address binding that will only allow one device to connect to it directly at a time.

Belkin N Router does not recognise PPPoA connection type

First reset the router by pressing the reset button for 10 seconds while power is ON and then after that run again the setup , just to give you a clue which one to choose for the internet setup, if you use Cable internet select Dynamic and if you use DSL internet set it to PPPoE and provide your email and password from your DSL company...

I have a belkin router N-150 F6D4230-4 and it has been hooked up for a while. Well, I had to get my internet turned back on today and now my wireless internet does not work. The modem light is flashing on...

It would be best if you setup the router again. Restore the router to factory defaults. Note: This will remove all previously configured settings "some router has reset button on the back of the router cover by a sticker. The reset button is small that you need a pen to reset it."

1.Unplug the power to the cable / DSL modem
2.Connect the power to the router.
3.Connect a computer to one of the LAN ports of the router.
4.Restart your computer.
5.From the computer connected to the router, open your web browser (internet explorer).
6.Enter the router's address,
7.Click Login in the upper right-hand corner of the page. The router does not ship with a password, so just click Submit.
To configure the router to connect to the Internet, you must enter information provided by your Internet Service Provider (ISP) into the "Connection Type" section in the left-hand column under the "Internet WAN" heading of the router's configuration page. If using DSL Internet, you may need to enter the PPPoE username and password. Likewise, if you have been issued a static IP address by your provider, the static IP fields (including network mask and gateway) must also must be set in the router.
ISP Connection Type
Charter PPPoE, Dynamic
Comcast Dynamic
Earthlink PPPoE, Dynamic
Qwest PPPoE
Road Runner PPPoE, Dynamic
Verizon PPPoE, Dynamic
8.Plug the power back into your Internet modem.
9.Verify that this computer can connect to the Internet properly. Open a new web browser and visit a few Internet sites such as or
10.Finally, configure additional network security features as desired to guard your systems against Internet attackers

If issue is not resolve you can contact your Internet Service Provider for assiatnce.

Will not connect to internet completed all connection but cannot connect to internet

Router's have their usual way for them to work with your preferred Cable / DSL Internet Service Provider.

Cable Internet usually requires a MAC clone and power cycle to work properly while DSL Internet often required a username and password that came with your DSL povider.

If you want to configure your D-Link router then try accessing it Web Interface;

This instruction is for Cable modem installation however if you're using DSL modem then just change the WAN connection type to PPPoE and type your user name and password.

Step 1 Log into the web-based configuration by typing in the IP address of the router (default: in your web browser. The username is admin (all lowercase) and the password is blank (nothing).

Step 2 Click the Home tab and click the WAN button. Dynamic IP Address is the default value, however, if Dynamic IP Address is not selected as the WAN type, select Dynamic IP Address by clicking on the radio button. Click Clone Mac Address. Click on Apply and then Continue to save the changes.

Step 3 Power cycle the cable modem and router:
  • Turn the cable modem off (first)
  • Turn the router off
  • Leave them off for 2 minutes**
  • Turn the cable modem on (first)
  • Wait until you get a solid cable light on the cable modem
  • Turn the router on
  • Wait 30 seconds
Step 4 Follow step 1 and log back into the web configuration. Click the Status tab and click the Device Info button. If you do not have a public IP address under the WAN heading, click on DHCP Renew and then click Continue. It may take a few minutes to obtain an IP address.

Hope this helps!

Setting up a wireless router

first you have to check the ip address of the dsl modem you used and see to it that it is not the same ip address of the router to avoid conflict. the default ip address of dlink router is in case your dsl modem has the same ip address with the router, you have to change firs the ip address of the router before connecting the router to your dsl modem.
next you need to know your internet connection whether it is DYNAMIC or PPPOE, depending on how your internet provider configured your modem. for PPPOE connection, you have to know the USERNAME and PASSWORD that your provider provides you.
good luck.
