Re: 2300 router not sending signal or allowing flow to...
First unplug router, turn off computer. Then plug ethernet into router then power up. Allow time for router to recognise internet connection and boot up completely. Then plug second ethernet into computer then power up computer. Allow enough time for the router to recognise computer and the computer to recognise router. You should be able to access internet within a few minutes. If not you might want to verify that the router is not outdated and fully functioning.

If you have Checked ALL cables and rebooted both, ISP modem and router, contact the ISP and have the signal analyzed, have a ISP tech come out and verify the signal. It may be a outside equipment issue.
The best way is to get a data cable and connect directly to the laptop. Your laptop should recognize the router and prompt you to make this your wireless device. Once through the setup you can unplug the cable and you should be set for wireless again. The one other thing to check is make sure the wireless button on the computer is on. Mine is on the front but I have seen them all over. Check the latter first.
You don't indicate your configuration or model, but assuming that you have a high speed modem (like cable or DSL) what usually works is:
Shut down your computer, unplug the cable modem and the router from power (remove the connection from the adaptor on back, no need to go to the wall unless that is more accessible) . Connect
all three - computer to router, router to modem. Make sure that the
ethernet cable between the router and the modem is in the router uplink
port and that the computer is plugged into one of the four ports that
look alike. Wait 30 seconds - plug in the modem. Wait another 30
seconds, plug in the router, wait another 30 seconds and boot the
If this doesn't work, repost with what did happen. If you have a different configuration than I assumed, please post a clarification giving your actual configuration including model numbers.
OK - I'm trying to visualize your setup...interesting!
The patch cable the electrician used is the same one you are using to connect to your hub? In other words: You checked the cables and they are all working fine?
You are sure the hub is working?
It has to be either the hub or one of the cables. It looks like you are not exceeding the total length of UTP-5 (330ft).
Test all involved patch cables either with a cable tester or by plugging in a computer and see if there are any problems. amke sure the patch cables are "straight through", either 568A or 568B identical on both ends of the cable.
Do you have the chance to use another hub or switch for testing purposes?
Just come back here and leave a comment with your findings - I'm happy to help.
Most cable companies will only allow 1 active device at a time conneceted to the cable modem. When ever you change what is connected to the cable modem you must always cycle the power/reset your cable modem.
When you are reseting the units, always rset the cable modem first, wait until it boots back up then reset the router. If that doesn't fix the poblem then it may be a configuration problem.
what exactly do you plug directly in the wall? what kind of connector does it use? an 'f' connector on a coax cable or RJ45 (like a phone plug? if you are using a cable connection you have to have a modem for that to work. if you are using a Ethernet cable tied directly to a jack on the wall you'll have to be sure routers are allowed to connect. or register the router with your provider. be sure your wireless router is getting an address form the internet provider. with out more details i can't give you any more specifics.
i have the same problem i moved and hooked everything up and now i cant get my router up and running or at least not with the internet. when it plug straight up to the cable modem i get the internet but when i hook it up to the network it has limited or no connection and i have been working on this thing for about a week. i think it is something small that i am over looking or something. i have it from the wall to the cable modem,from the cable modem to the router and then from the router to the computer. the cables i am using all work because i tested them straight from the computer to the cable modem and they worked if you could help i would be greatfull and if need more info just tell me and i will do my best
You may need to enable the wireless signal within the router settings, but you will have to connect to it via an RJ45 lan cable, as you would of when you first set it up.
Type in the routers ip address in your internet browser and get into the routers settings that way.
