    you might take your old ac adapter and the new one to radio shack, have one of the guys there test them with a volt meter for proper voltage. make sure they now the specifications here so that they set there meter up correctly.

    Doing this can tell you if the problem is with the ac adapter or the router itself.

My modem is working correctly. My wireless router is working, but my laptop doesn't recognize my modem; therefore, I cannot access the internet. I can if I plug the Ethernet cord into my laptop.

There's a lot of layers to what can go wrong, generally speaking you should be able to get online if two conditions are met: You are connected to your wireless network, and your modem is assigning an IP address to your router.

Once you know you are connected to your wireless network (you should be able to see the correct network name when you put your mouse over the computer icon in the lower right - assuming you are using Windows), you can generally fix most situations where the modem is not assigning the router an IP address by resetting the devices in the proper order, here's how:

1. Unplug the power cord from both the modem and the router
2. Wait 1 full minute
3. Plug the power back in on the modem
4. Wait for the Cable light to go solid
5. Plug the power back in on the router

This will solve the vast majority of issues. If it does not, double check to make sure the ethernet cord from the modem is going into the proper plug on the router. Usually this is going to be labeled "Internet", "Modem", or "WAN", in stead of a number.

If even this does not resolve the issue, feel free to give your ISP a call. While this may be a problem with the router, most ISP employees are at least willing to do minor preliminary troubleshooting, and will often have access to advanced tools to help them see what the modem can see.

I have wireless connection with a 2 wire modem and every time my home phone [ cordless ) rings or someone is on it ,, i lose my internet connection . Ive put a splitter on the cords and everything and it...

The reason why your experiencing that problem was the cordless phone and the router that youre using has the same 2.4Gz frequency.So everytime the phone rings it interupts the wireless signal what i can suggest is if the phone is in between the computer and the router or if the phone is near the router move it away so that it wont interfere the wireless signal

Thanks for using Fixya.

How do i set a password to protect my wireless internet

Access the Router's page and go to Wireless configuration. You may assigned a WEP key that uses hexadecimal value (A-F, 0-9). So if someone attempts to access your Wireless network, they will prompt to enter a Wep key.

How to secure my d-link wireless adapter with my Arris 550a modem

To make your wireless router secure you need to use your browser and type in the router's IP configuration address.
Then you need to change the default Admin password,
change SSID and turn off SSID broadcast,
setup the encryption (use WAP or WAP2 if your wireless card supports WAP) if not use WEP 128 bit encryption
and for added protection use MAC address filtering.

Motorola Surfboard 4220 not working with my Netgear WGT624 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.

Hope this helps. Let me know if it does not work.

Please rate.
