First you connect the wire from the wall into the wan port in the back of your dsl modem. next you connect the outsource wire from your dsl modem into the wan port on your router. next put another rj45 wire into the number one port in the back of your router and the other to your computer. put another wire into number 2 and then to your xbox. everything need to be unplugged while you are hooking it up. once done power cycle...meaning plug up the dsl and wait for the lights to stay lit. then the router. the start your computer. if you want to go wireless just get a usb wireless network adaptor and there you are

Trying to hook up a linksys wireless-g 2.4 ghz to a dsl modem for wireless how do i do that


Connect the DSL modem with a LAN cable to the WAN port on the Linksys wireless router. If you have not already configured the Linksys wireless settings, this is the next step.
To configure the wireless router and prevent unauthorized access to your wireless network, please click on this link and follow my instructions :-

Wireless connection set up


Are you trying to hook up the laptop wirelessly to the pc? because then the pc would need to have a wireless card as well....sounds like I need more info, but if you are trying to do what I think you are, you should just get a wireless router instead, hook the pc tower directly to it via ethernet cable, and then setup the laptop to connect to the router. The router would hook to your dsl or cable router....what service do you have?

I dont know haow to connect Linksys Wireless-G Broadband Router with SpeedBooster WRT54GS - wireless router


  1. Connect your modem to the Internet port of the router. Your computer needs to be connected to one of the 4 Ethernet ports at the back of the router.
  2. Access the router's setup page by launching Internet explorer and typing 192.168.1.1.
  3. It will ask for a username and password. Leave the username blank and password is admin.
  4. Once your in the setup page, set "Internet connection type" with what your ISP requires you to have.
  5. If you have cable ISP, usually it is "Automatic Configuration-DHCP."
  6. But if you have DSL ISP, then it will be PPPoE. You need to know your username and password from your ISP.
  7. Better yet, verify your Internet connection type from your Internet service provider.
Hope this helps!

How to connect wireless router, Netgear WGR614, to my computer?


4 steps to set up your home wireless network
1.
Choose your wireless equipment
The first step is to make sure that you have the equipment you need. As you're looking for products in stores or on the Internet, you might notice that you can choose equipment that supports three different wireless networking technologies: 802.11a, 802.11b, and 802.11g. We recommend 802.11g, because it offers excellent performance and is compatible with almost everything.
Shopping list
• Broadband Internet connection
• Wireless router
• A computer with built-in wireless networking support or a wireless network adapter

A wireless router
The router converts the signals coming across your Internet connection into a wireless broadcast, sort of like a cordless phone base station. Be sure to get a wireless router, and not a wireless access point.
A wireless network adapter
Network adapters wirelessly connect your computer to your wireless router. If you have a newer computer you may already have wireless capabilities built in. If this is the case, then you will not need a wireless network adapter. If you need to purchase an adapter for a desktop computer, buy a USB wireless network adapter. If you have a laptop, buy a PC card-based network adapter. Make sure that you have one adapter for every computer on your network.
Note: To make setup easy, choose a network adapter made by the same vendor that made your wireless router. For example, if you find a good price on a Linksys router, choose a Linksys network adapter to go with it. To make shopping even easier, buy a bundle, such as those available from D-Link, Netgear, Linksys, Microsoft, and Buffalo. If you have a desktop computer, make sure that you have an available USB port to plug the wireless network adapter into. If you don't have any open USB ports, buy a hub to add additional ports.
2.
Connect your wireless router
Since you'll be temporarily disconnected from the Internet, print these instructions before you go any further.
First, locate your cable modem or DSL modem and unplug it to turn it off.
Next, connect your wireless router to your modem. Your modem should stay connected directly to the Internet. Later, after you've hooked everything up, your computer will wirelessly connect to your router, and the router will send communications through your modem to the Internet.

Hello Art G.

The easiest way to get connected to your access point is by using the CD that came with the AP. If you don't have it, you have to get connected to the access point in order to get the WEP KEY.

If do you have the model of the Access point (2wire) i can help you with that.

I have a computer hooked up to bell sympatico. How do I connect my new compaq to it? Thanks


If you have only a DSL or Cable modem, that doesn't have an integrated Router, then you'll need to get a router to use more than one computer. The broadband modem, will connect to the uplink port of the router, and give you usually 4 wired ports and up to 50 wireless connections.

Here is an example from linksys

Connecting a router


To connect more than one computer to same network, you need to use a router. Two modems will not work on same network.
My suggestion:
Buy a wireless modem router for cable broadband (and eventually a wireless network card for the other computer.
Here is an example: Linksys BEFW11S4 Wireless-B 4-Port Cable/DSL
Ask retailer to get right model for your broadband.
Connect the remote computer with wireless.

Your router should just be that, a router. Your connection is probably like fibernet the modem is actually on the outside of the house. This may help or may not but I have a linksys wired router that works very well but you have to go to their website in order to set up the router. You may need to look through your papers and find the web address to connect to the right site.

On the left front of the WRT54G wireless router, which is what I assume you have there is a light that says Cisco. It is actually a Universal Plug and Play button. Plug in the router to the DSL, the DSL will go in the port that is by itself, the others are numbered. The diagram that came with your router shows you where to put the DSL interface.

Now plug your PC into one of the other ports, and turn the laptop on with the wireless turned on too. Then press this button. It will turn from steady yellow to flashing white for a bit. It will use universal plug and play to set itself up.

Hope this helps. Also, if you want to reset the router to the factory state, press the button on the back of the router for 5 seconds and unplug it. Then keep holding it and plug it back in.
