Re: No internet signal between router and desktop pc.
Have you plugged everything in with the modem off and the router off?
have you tried unplugging the linksys for a sec then plug it back in?
also have you checked the pin connection on the plug on both the computer and the router?
what are the lights indicating?

att 2 wire is a Adsl Modem (Requires a telephone line jack to get the signals) but charter communication is a cable internet service (not DSL) , Requires a TV cable service for internet . These two jacks differs and there working differs .. Means : Att works with the username and password type of authentication but charter requires the MAC address of modem for authentication . Therefore for a cable internet 2wire 2701hg-b modem cant be used . But yes in case charters has username and password authentication and works with the telephone jack in house then its possible to use the same modem.
Go to the control panel and un-install the program that the cd installed. then: Shutdown your PC. Unplug the power from the router and the cable modem. Wait 30 sec. then plug in the power to the cable modem, wait 30 sec. then plug the power to the router. Wait till you have "Internet" light then restart your PC. The PC should pick up an IP address and you should be able to get on-line. This is if you have a cable service provider. If you have DSL, the router needs to be configured with PPOe.
then restart both computers.

The answer that he gave you is not accurate. In fact you can use your wireless over dial-up. This however takes a little work. You will need to setup internet connection sharing on your desktop with the modem. If you can get the sharing working, then you can use your ethernet card on your PC to transfer the internet back to your wireless router.
This will work, it has been a few years since I have done it, but I used it this way for several years.
you start out by seeing if you can ping the 2wire. The ip address you ping from a command prompt is the 2wire's gateway, 192.168.1.254
(you can get to the command prompt by clicking start, then click run, and type cmd and click ok on windows XP)
(on vista, you just click start and type cmd right above it where it says start search and hit enter on your keyboard)
(MAC's have a ping utility located by clicking on the harddrive, applications, network, network utility, and then the ping tab)
a little black window pops open, thats your command prompt
type ping 192.168.1.254 and hit enter on your keyboard
if you dont get replies, then your computer doesn't see the 2wire.
call tech support at 877-722-3755 24/7 for further support if required. We can make sure you nic is config properly, working properly, your not being blocked by a firewall, etc.
You may have spyware or virus on the desktop. Or the desktop may be badly fragmented, run defragmenter.
then: Router setup If you are using the cd that comes with the router, that is the problem. You do not have to use the cd. Go to the control panel and un-install the program that the cd installed. then: Shutdown your PC. Unplug the power from the router and the cable modem. Wait 30 sec. then plug in the power to the cable modem, wait 30 sec. then plug the power to the router. Wait till you have "Internet" light then restart your PC. The PC should pick up an IP address and you should be able to get on-line. This is if you have a cable service provider. If you have DSL, the router needs to be configured with PPPOe.
Try to change the LAN IP address of your router to 192.168.2.1 by accessing the router's Setup page. You also need to set your Westell modem to "full-bridge mode". You need to ask assistance from your ISP to bridge the modem. After that, set-up the Linksys router to PPPoE then power cycle it.
first unhook router and hook up pc directly yo modem and type in 22.214.171.124 and goto config tab and see is modem is ppoe or bridge to ethernet needs to be ppoe second go back into setup on router and do a manually config and tell you have a dynamic dns and finish setup process i had the same problem with att internet and att had me setting it up wrong
THESE ARE DSL INSTRUCTIONS
All you need to do is change the Linksys router's IP address. Because the westell and the linksys has the same range of IP address that creates a conflict on your network that's why you can't get online.
First login to the setup page of your linksys router.
Under the Setup Tab (this is the first screen that you will see after typing in the linksys router's password.) make sure that the Internet connection type is set to Automatic Configuration- DHCP, Then on the same page look for router IP address or LAN IP address. By default its 192.168.1.1, you need to change it to 192.168.2.1. And hit save settings. You will get disconnected from the linksys page, that is normal. If you want to log back in to the router page you use the new address of your linksys (192.168.2.1).
Now you restart your computer to refresh the connection and that should get you online.
Right click on the drive you want to share. Ex: C:\Vol-xx = name. In the pop up window click Sharing & Security. This needs done to all the drives you want access too. To share a printer. Everyone must have the printer drivers installed. The Pc that has a direct connection to the printer must also Share the printer on the network. Open Printer & Faxes, highlight the printer you want to share. Click File than click Sharing follow windows instructions.
Small suggestion regards to the wireless side of the network. Suggest you setup security so others close too you can not tap into your network. (common).
There are some question's that should probably be asked before we begin. Generally a wireless adapter or network card is present in a computer to allow it to access a wireless router which is connected to an internet service provider (generally a dsl connection through a phone line or a cable modem from your cable provider. Your request seems to be to get a computer to talk to a wireless router to talk to a wireless router to talk to your internet service provider (dsl or cable). I will assume after reading this that you probably have or will get a wireless adapter for the computer to talk to one or both of the wireless routers you appear to have. Wiring two wireless routers in the same house may be useful if the home is large or the wireless routers operate on different bands (a, b, g or frequencies) and you have different computers that require the different bands. however both wireless routers are in my experience connected to each other using a wire. Once we clarify the above we can probably address the connectivity issues for the devices you require.
