Re: wireless router to modem problems
Since it says network cable unplugged on the computer when wired to the router, you need to check these first: âMake sure that the Ethernet cable is connected from the modem to the router’s Internet (WAN) port and the computer to the numbered port of the router. The computer should used to be connecting to the Ethernet port of the modem, if not; you should contact your ISP first. âMake sure that the Ethernet adapter/LAN card on your computer is working properly. You can check that on the device manager of your computer. âIf those are all working fine that would mean the router is not yet configured for Internet access or we can say that the settings for the provider are not synchronized with the router. To configure the router, you can do these general steps: 1.Connect the computer to the numbered port of the router and the modem to the router’s Internet (WAN) port. 2.Turn off the computer, router and modem. 3.Turn on the modem first, wait for the lights to stabilize then turn on the router. As soon as the lights are stabilized, you can turn on the computer and check for internet connection. However, if the Internet connection still does not work. That means there are additional settings needed to be done. You can message me about the name of your ISP and I will provide you the specific steps you need.

It should connect with an Ethernet cable. Looks like a phone cable but is twice as wide with 8 pins instead of 4. Plug one end into the modem's Ethernet output port and plug the other end into the router's single WAN/Internet input port.
verify that the cable are conned correctly. now the ethernet cable that come from the cable modem do not need to be plugin to the port that is label Internet, it need to be plug in any port 1 to 4. then access you router via a ethernet cable and setup the router of wireless access.
Your modem if it is a Speedstream 5200 does not have any wireless capability and as such, there is no need for a password. You can only use one computer connected with an ethernet cable to your computer. What you can do is purchase a wireless router, preferably a N series wireless router because it is stronger than a normal G series router. Normally your modem connects to your computer via the ethernet cable. With a wireless router, instead of plugging the modem to your computer you should plug it in router. From the router you can connect another ethernet cable and plug it in on your desktop. You can connect at least 4 wired computer to your router. For the wireless part, all they have to do is look for the strongest wireless signal then hit connect. If it ask for a password then it should be in the sticker at the side of the wireless router.
Connect your router to computer with ethernet cable then you can access it with following default link. http://192.168.1.1 or http://192.168.0.1 or http://192.168.15.1 or http://192.168.2.1 If you are not able to access it with above ip then check your computers ip address gateway ip is your router ip try with it. Then it ask for user name and password. Type user as "admin" and password as "admin" or "password" or blank. Then you can see configuration page of router. Then click on wireless ->wireless security then enable WEP then enter new password save settings and restart router.
Then you can connect wifi with that new password.
Let me know if you need further assistance. Thanks for using FixYa.
If you intend to connect more than 2 devices for internet access, given your current situation, it is advisable to get a small 5 port or 8 port switch. Whilst i would ask you to go get a hub, hub's these days have pretty much phased out, so yeah, that would be a better solution.
Alternatively, you may want to look into getting a wireless router (although it might be somewhat of an overkill given your current issue). However, if you dont already own one, the purchasing of a wireless router will provide not only wireless connectivity but also provide a basic of at least 4 lan ports (where you would wanna connect your devices) and have intenet connectivity via your modem.
I hope the above information helped. Please do let me know if there are other queires regarding this. Also, pls remeber to vote for me if you find this solution useful. Thank you.
Unplug the router for ten seconds and plug it back in, it needs to reset. Some routers have a reset button. I often wait longer than ten seconds, I find a beer is usually the right amount of time. Sometimes the modem needs a reset also; unplug everything, then plug back in sequence, with the modem first, the wait, then the router, wait, then turn on your computer. That system works for any brand modem and router.
Make sure that you have the ethernet cord from your modem plugged into the WAN/Internet port on your router. Then unplug the power cord from your cable modem and plug it right back in. After the modem fully comes back online, unplug the power cord on the wireless router and plug it back in. wait 30 - 60 sec and then try and connect.
Most cable companies only allow one active"CPE" at a time for internet access. All this means is when you change what is connected to the cable modem you must always reboot the cable modem to allow access.
Ok, cable (coax) comes in from wall and attaches to modem. Ethernet cable goes from modem to WAN Port of router. You may have to reboot both devices to ensure that your modem (internet service provider) assigns IP address to your router. If PC is close enough, attach new ethernet cable from one of the 4 ports on your router down to your PC's ethernet adapter. (where your modem used to plug into). Router will now assign an IP address to your PC and you should be able to access the www.
Good Luck and let me know if you have any more questions.
What you will need: Wireless router and a wireless adapter connected to your PC.
This is assuming you have a broadband internet connection.
Install the wireless router by taking the ethernet cable out of the back of your computer and placing it in the WAN or internet port in the back of your router. Install the wireless adapter inside your PC. Unplug your modem for a minute or so. Then plug in your modem and your router, then turn on your PC. If you are running XP, it should see a list of wireless access points you can access. Select the one for your router (should be the strongest) and hit connect. This will connect you to the wireless router and the internet.
Note this solution assumes the following: You have a high speed internet connection, your ISP's modem is connected to your computer via an ethernet cable, and you are running windows XP.
