STEP 1: Before You Begin In order to set up your Linksys Router, be sure to first have the following: 1. A Linksys Router. 2. A DSL modem. 3. A working computer that can be wired in directly to the router for initial configuration and testing. 4. Two (2) standard Ethernet network cables. Linksys Routers come with one (1) standard network cable that you can use. 5. The PPPoE DSL username and password assigned by your Internet Service Provider. Depending on the provider, your username format might be similar to username, vzn123456, or an e-mail address (username@isp.net). If you are not sure what your username and password are, contact your Internet Service Provider for more information. STEP 2: Check Your Internet Connection Before installing your Linksys Router, it is important to first verify that you can successfully access the Internet by connecting directly to your modem (without your Linksys Router installed). 1. If you are connecting for the first time, follow the instructions provided by your provider to set up your modem and computer for online access. 2. Verify that you are able to access the Internet without any problems. If you are not able to get a connection, contact your Internet Service Provider for assistance. When you are able to access the Internet using your modem, continue to Step 3 and proceed with the installation of your Linksys Router. STEP 3: Connect the Hardware Follow these steps to connect your Linksys Router to your modem and computer. 1. Shut down your computer and unplug the power cords connected to your modem and Linksys Router if they are currently powered on. 2. Disconnect the network cable that connects to the back of your computer. 3. Connect the network cable that you just removed to the Internet port (or WAN port) located on the back of your Linksys Router. Your modem should now be connected to your Linksys Router. 4. Connect a second network cable back into your computer (into the same port that was disconnected in #2). 5. Connect the other end of the second network cable to one of the numbered ports located on the back of your Linksys Router (labeled 1, 2, 3, 4, etc.). Your computer should now be connected to your Linksys Router. The following diagram shows how your network should be connected. Verify that your connections are correct, and continue to the next step. 6. Plug the included power adapter into the router?s Power port. Then, plug the other end of the power adapter into a nearby electrical outlet to supply power to your router. 7. Turn on your computer. Do not turn on your modem at this time. Only your router and computer should be turned on for Step 4. STEP 4: Configure the Router Follow these steps to configure your Linksys Router. 1. On the computer that is connected to the Linksys Router, open a web browser such as Internet Explorer or Netscape. 2. Type http://192.168.1.1 into your browser?s Address or Location bar and click Go or press the [Enter] key on your keyboard. The IP address 192.168.1.1 is the default IP address of Linksys Routers. 3. A user name and password prompt will appear. Leave the user name field blank (empty), and type in admin (lowercase) for the password. The password admin is the default password of Linksys Routers. NOTE: The following username/password prompt screen will vary by operating system. 4. Once logged in, the router?s web-based Setup utility should load. In the section labeled Internet Connection Type, or WAN Connection Type depending on router model and firmware version, select the PPPoE option on the drop down list. Click here to view what an older Linksys router interface looks like. 5. Once PPPoE is selected, enter your PPPoE DSL username and password provided by your Internet Service Provider into the router?s User Name and Password fields. Depending on the provider, your username format might be similar to username, vzn123456, or an e-mail address (username@isp.net). If you are not sure what your username and password are, contact your Internet Service Provider for more information. NOTE: Be sure to clear the ?Password? field before entering your account password. AOL USERS: Enter in your PPPoE username as screenname@aol.com. 6. If the Keep Alive option is not selected, be sure to select it instead of the ?Connect on Demand? option. The ?Keep Alive? option will ensure that your connection stays connected even when it is not in use. 7. Scroll down to the bottom of the page and click on the Save Settings, or Apply button depending on router model, to save your changes. OR 8. Once your changes are saved, you will be presented with a button to return or you will be returned to the previous page automatically.

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.

I can not get on the net via my router. I can get out on my laptop directly connected to DSL modem. what am i doing wrong?


That means your router is not yet configured for internet access. If you are on DSL, your modem's IP and router's IP might be conflicting with each other. You need to change the router's IP address. If not, you can simply configure PPPoE settings on the router's admin page. If you can open the router's setup page, look for Internet Connection Type, choose PPPoE and provide the information that it asks you like username and password given by your DSL provider.

Ip configuration


Does your friend and yours IP settings the same?To clarify you would have 2 types of connection from your ISP.The 1st type of connection is that the authentication happens in the modem through the PPPOE UN/PW and the IP configurations are done in the modem and as such wont require to configure the IP settings when the windows is reinstalled.However the 2nd type of DSL service is that the IP settings are done in the windows and does not require any PPPOE username and password to authenticate.You would have to verify with your ISP which type of service you have and if you require any change order to make it the same way your friend has.

Please let me know any clarification you would require for this issue.

DSL connection not being shared by Linksys RV042 Dual Wan router


Looks like your "modem" is actually a gateway, as is common with DSL devices. It's acting like a modem and a router. So you're actually connecting a router to your RV42. You could get this to work a couple ways.
1. Leave the modem acting like a router and configure the WAN connection on the RV42 as a static IP, and use the IP of the modem. You may also be able to use "obtain IP automatically" in the WAN connection. This way, the modem stores your PPOE information and just forwards the traffic to the RV42. Any devices behind the RV42 won't know the difference.
2. Configure the modem as just a modem (no routing). Your ISP should be able to talk you through this, but in the modem configuration you can look for what's usually called "bridged mode." Then you would enter the PPOE information in the RV42. This is my preferred method.
