SMC7901BRA Modem + Router Cannot connect

When i first got this together with a Linksys wireless-G broadband router with 4port switch, it worked fine until i moved my broadband connection to another line and another space within the house.

Now I can't get into broadband connection even if i plug in the LAN cable and do a direct dial from just the SMC router without using the Linksys. A technical guy said could be a prefix auto dial connection in this SMS. I have done a reset by pressing the reset button behind, off the modem, restart my laptop but still can't connect.

Anyhow can help me with the auto dial configuration? pls email to 250488@gmail.com, if you have any answer

    some typo error above...

    "predix auto dial connection in this SMC"

    "Anyone can help me..."


  • mycarmen Oct 18, 2008

    thanks Steve but was thinking not to use Linksys anymore since I am not using VOIP (purchased the Linksys for VOIP usage plan earlier)

    The SMC7901BRA ADSL barricade come with built in router which I can use by itself right?
    So, i need help to reconfigure this SMC instead of Linksys.
    Thanks

The Linksys router can be communicated with by going to Start>Run>type 'http://192.168.1.1' and when the logon screen appears use 'linksys' for username and 'admin' for the password. There you can reset defaults, view status, configure all router functions, et al, including restore defaults. Pressing the little reset button has reset levels that vary with the amount of time it is pressed -basically discharging a capacitive charge. Remember that cable modems use DHCP whereas DSL uses PPPoE. ~Steve

    OK, then here is the manual for a similar SMC barricade. IP settings for each manufacturer use the same config addresses and gateways so peruse this:

    Domain Name Server (DNS) is what you need to resolve the ip address and the ports are the actual connections through which all communications are made possible. The Internet connection is impossible without those but they are not the problem -only the symptoms. If you see what the ip address actually is it probably is a number that starts with 169 like 169.xxx.xx.x which means that Windows cannot connect and so it just makes up an address. Sounds silly but Windows has to put something there so it just throws out the 169 domain. But you probably don't care about that so you need to do this:

    Go to Start>Run then type http://192.168.2.1, enter the password 'smcadmin' and you should be in the router configuration. This is all in Chapter 4. If you connect to the router then the next step is the Internet. I do not know how much you know so try that and read Chapter 4 so I don't have to repeat all of the words there. I am happy to help if you try that first. OK? ~Steve

I went from a ATT dsl modem to a net gear modem and i cannot get the net ger mode and linksys mode to talk to the computer


Most DSL providers use PPPoE (Point-to-Point Protocol over Ethernet) to establish Internet connections for end-users. To set up a Linksys router, you need to enable PPPoE on the router’s web-based setup page.
To setup a Linksys router with a DSL connection you need to perform four steps:
  1. Verifying Internet Connection
  2. Connecting the Devices Together
  3. Checking the LEDs
  4. Setting-up a DSL ISP on a Linksys Router
Verifying Internet Connection
Connect the Broadband modem to the computer using an Ethernet cable without the router installed and make sure that the Internet connection is active. If not, contact your Internet Service Provider.

I have Time Warner Cable for internet and Vontage cable for my phone thru my internet. I'm trying to connect a Linksys router for my wireless laptop. I also have a Netgear switch connected to Time Warner...


If you purchased a Linksys wireless roter then you shoul not need the switch anymore-
Try going directly from your time warner modem into the Interner/WAN port on the router and then plug your desktop computer and the vontage phone system into 2 of the ports on the router. After everything is hooked up you will probably need to power cycle for it all to work correctly.
Please power cycle in this order:

Reboot modem - then Router- then Vontage phone system.

Hope this helps

I have linksies router and 2 wire modem will they work together?


If the Modem has an ethernet port (looks like a large phone plug like the ones on the router) connect an ethernet cable from it to the "internet/wan" port on the router. If it doesn't there isn't much you can do.
