I cannot hookup my osx mac computer to the wireless at&t internet service i have set up in my home. The other 3 computers in our home do work (including another mac). We have called at&t tech...


What we really need is more information on the router. Do you know how the other computers connect to the wireless? Do you know if you had to have a password in order to connect? If you never did anything to the Linksys router to set it up, you can login to the router by opening Internet Explorer and browsing to 192.168.1.1. It will ask you for a login name and password. By default the name is blank and the password is "admin". If you look at the wireless settings you should be able to see the wireless settings, like the wireless name (again, by default the name is Linksys), what kind (if any) of encryption is used, etc.

When router is pluged in modem no internet.when modem is pluged into tower internet is on.


From what I understand, your router is not working, is it new or did you have it working before your difficulty?
If it is not new try this, plug you modem into you router and your router into your computer. Pull the power supply plug out of the modem for one minute and them plug it back in. When all of your lights are green and solid, reboot your computer. When it comes back up see if you can get on line. This has worked for me many times. Now if it doesn't help...call your ISP (Internet Service Provider) like comcast, verizon, whomever...and they can take over your machine and correct the setting in a matter of two minutes...You'll save a lot of headaches...And you are paying for the SERVICE, right !
Good luck, please leave rating, thank you kindly

I am not getting a signal on my laptop with the netgear box. the model # is wgr614. I am hard wired into my modem now. I couldn't remember my security password so I pushed the reset button on the back. ...


When you press the reset button on your router, you essentially erase all of the settings back to factory defaults. You will have to set up your router as if youre connecting it for the first time. You need the default gateway IP address (this is needed to directly access the router itself), and information based on your internet connection type (cable modem or DSL). If you use a DSL modem, you may need your username and password (this should have been provided for you when you got your service; call your provider's customer service if you dont have it). The setup CD that came with your router can (and most times will) help you with setting up your router. Newer setup CDs do most of the work for you. Follow the CDs instructions and refer to the owners manual for more info.

You need first to configure the linksys router to work with your road runner cable internet, if you have the setup CD for the router you can use to configure the router but if not you need to manually configure the router to work with Road runner cable internet by accessing the router setup page, if you're not aware on how to manually configure the router to work with road runner you can call this number so a Tech can walk you through with the process 1-877-787-8749...

Router not detecting internet


Try restarting router and computer.

Check all cables connected to router.

If that does not fix it , you will need to set up again your router. To set up the router, connect to the router with a cable, and call your Internet service Provider phone support number, they will guide you step by step in restoring your internet connection.

Changed internet providers and can't remember password I would like to reset the system because I have a unsecured network and a secured one. I would like to only have a secured one.


Call the internet provider tech support phone number and get assistance in step by step configuring your network.

You will have to open Internet Explore , type in your router IP number (something like 192.168.0.1) and set up the network again.

A phone operator will follow you in doing this.

If you want to do it yourself you find instructions on haw to access router on Internet Explorer, and how to configure your network on router user manual.

I cannot get my windows mail working.


To get your windows mail for VISTA or XP working make sure you have correct setting from you internet provider like the POP3 and SMTP address. Call your internet provider tech support to ask for this info should be free. Enter your email account username and password where ever Windows Mail or outlook will ask for it.

PS. Make sure your connected to the internet first before trying to check your email. (Only if your on a ADSL connection)

I have wireless internet. The program is working well-I called Verizon and they confirmed it-but internet explorer will not let me get on the net. I have Microsoft Vista as an operating system.


One of the problems that I ran into with Verizon was the configuration of the router.
You will want to type in the router's IP address into the windows explorer bar.
From here you can configure your router.
A setting that the tech missed on my router was actually just a simple function that turned on the connectivity within my router.
So make sure that all settings are running correctly, and that all needed functions are turned on from within the router.

My ISP is Orange. I have the Phillips SNK560 which I can't get to connect to the internet. I can connect through the old broadband Speedtouch modem though so there is nothing wrong with the connection. ...


Yes, you may need to configure the router first, try calling your provider to help you set this up or Philips to help you setup the router.
