Actually your computer will never know that a rooter or router even exists -that is why routers are better than hubs -spooks of the Ethernet! The router assigns a local ip address to the PC while keeping the real Internet Service Provider address to itself. Now through your PC you can 'talk' to your router, configure your router and do good and bad things to your router, your PC has no idea what a router is nor does it know much more than what 'one' is and what 'zero' is -completely stupid. That is why you exist -to serve this ionized piece of silicone by pressing keys. Nowhere in device manager will you see "router" advertised. Systems Information will also be totally ignorant as to even what a router is.

  1. Enough of that. You probably really want to just connect to a WAN or a LAN. Adding to what WeListen2You said, when all else fails, resort to the manual FOR the router. This is what you will need to do
  2. release one hand from the huka on the ****.
  3. Go to Start>Run> and type in the ip address found in your Manual (Linksys uses http://192.168.1.1, Motorola uses http://192.168.10.1, SMC uses http://192.168.2.1, hence the Manual) and a logon window appears.
  4. The user name is always the manufacturer name, like 'linksys' and the password is usually 'admin' (smcadmin for smc).
  5. The router is now ready to talk to you. There are many things to discuss here but one general point to remember is DHCP is for cable, PPPoE is for DSL.
  6. If you have a $5000 Cisco router then we can stop typing, send me a plane ticket via hokuwho@aol.com on my PayPal account and I will do all of this stuff for you.

HI! I bliv u are having some issue setting up ur router.. I will be more than glad to assist u. . here are the steps u need to do:
1. press the reset button on the back of the router for 20sec..while pressing the reset button, unplug the power plug and after 2secs while pressing the reset button plug it back in and press for 30secs after that unplug the router for 15secs then plug it back in..once all the lights are solid and ok
2. connect the ethernet cable to port1 of the router and the other end to the lan port of your computer..
3. pull up ur browser then type at the url:192.168.1.1.or 192.168.0.1 or u can check the routers default gateway by right clicking the network icon on the lower right of your task bar and click on status and it will show the ip address of the computer, subnetmask and default gateway, the default gateway is the routers ip address, once u type in to the url, it will ask u the username and password, by default the username is admin and the password is 1234 or just leave it blank
4. it will show the setup page of the router. u can set the router on the specific internet setup that u have.
a. if ur isp is a cable company, normaly u need to do a mac clone on the router setup page by cloning the computer that is reg to the cable company, how to determine it. ex. the computer that is reg to the cable company is a desktop or laptop, if this computer is connected to the modem directly and u can access internet.
b. once u determined it u need to connect this computer directly to the router and do a mac clone and set ur internet settings to auto-dhcp..then save the settings and after that, unplug to the power of the modem and router, plug in 1st the power of the modem then once all lights lit, plug in the router, then once all lights lit, try to pull up a browser that ur computer is connected directly to the router.. ur cable connection shud be, cable from the modem will go to the WAN port of the router and connect ethernet cable on port1 going to the lan port of the computer..once u can access the internet, u can now access again the setup page of the router by typing at the url:192.168.1.1 and u can setup the wireless settings, u need to create a ssid or wireless name and a security..
5. If ur isp is a dsl normaly they give u a username and password to connect to the internet, ur settings on the router should be PPPoe
6. If ur isp gives u a static ip address settings, u need to set the router to isp setup.
a. how to check the isp of the isp given to u..
1. click on start
2. run
3. type cmd
4. it will show a dos prompt
5. from the dos prompt type ipconfig/all
6. it will list the ip address, subnet, default gateway, dns server
this settings should be type in to the settings on the router for static ip addressing..
7. Once your done on the internet setting, go to your wireless connection settings and you can create a wireless network name or ssid, set a security by selecting wep, wpa, wpa2.
8. once all is set. save the settings and to check if your laptop can access the wireless network that you did, turn on the wireless switch of your laptop, once its on, it will show the wireless network icon on the lower right of the taskbar, right click it and select on view available network, the network name that u did should list, just select it and connect and it will ask for the password, just type the password and connect, you should be connected to the wireless network and have internet access..
9. If you are going to hook up your desktop to the wireless connection, you need to install a wireless network adapter, install the driver and do the same thing as u did to the laptop, for the desktop no need of turning on the wireless switch, once you install the driver correctly, it will show a network icon..
if you have any query pls feel free to get in touch.. good luck

Im trying to setup a second pc to my wireless router linksys wireless-G wrt54G it tells me to go to www.linksysfix.com/ela but its no longer available how do i connect my 2nd pc now?


Hi John
I'm not sure why you are being directed to that website. Connecting a second pc is just the same as connecting the first - nothing special is involved unless the router has been set up with access lists.
What is preventing the second pc from connecting? What sort of message are you getting when you try to connect?

With a DSL modem in the US, you need to confiugre the router for PPPOE with the username/password that was provided to you by your ISP. If you can't remember the name or password, contact your ISP

You do not need 2 routers to connect to the internet infact you need only 1. having 2 conflicts with pcs and causing them not to work.

From the wall you have your cable fro your internet that plugs into your modem, from the modem it plugs into the router by ethernet cable to the uplink slot and then your computers connect to the router. Most routers can connect 4 computers at once. If running them all wirelessly just reboot them and they should connect automatically. If your wiring them plug them into the back by an ethernet cable in the slots 1 for the first PC, 2 for the second so on and so on. You may have to cold boot everything at first meaning shut down all the computers, unplug the router and modem. Then Plug in the modem let it boot up, plug in the router let it boot up then the pcs.

If you need more hook ups if 4 isnt enough yo uneed a switch or access point not another router.

Let me know If this helps and if I can help further.

My belkin light is on but the internet connection to my laptop keeps breaking up consistently


This sounds like it is probably the networking cables as your PC is directly connected so shouldnt have problems with net access. Get new cables as a first step :0)
