Sounds like the integrated ethernet port has gone bad. You can install a new ethernet card in one of the PCI expantion slots. Then plug the ethernet into the new card, this should take care of the problem. You can not repair a bad integrated ethernet port.

My computer doesn't recognize my printer


It's possible that the problem is with the USB port on the printer. If you have a router, you can try to connect your printer using an ethernet cable so you won't have to configure your printer using a USB cable.

Once you have connected the printer using an ethernet cable, proceed with the installation in your computer and choose ethernet as the connection type. It should automatically find the printer on your network.

My modem is working correctly. My wireless router is working, but my laptop doesn't recognize my modem; therefore, I cannot access the internet. I can if I plug the Ethernet cord into my laptop.


There's a lot of layers to what can go wrong, generally speaking you should be able to get online if two conditions are met: You are connected to your wireless network, and your modem is assigning an IP address to your router.

Once you know you are connected to your wireless network (you should be able to see the correct network name when you put your mouse over the computer icon in the lower right - assuming you are using Windows), you can generally fix most situations where the modem is not assigning the router an IP address by resetting the devices in the proper order, here's how:

1. Unplug the power cord from both the modem and the router
2. Wait 1 full minute
3. Plug the power back in on the modem
4. Wait for the Cable light to go solid
5. Plug the power back in on the router

This will solve the vast majority of issues. If it does not, double check to make sure the ethernet cord from the modem is going into the proper plug on the router. Usually this is going to be labeled "Internet", "Modem", or "WAN", in stead of a number.

If even this does not resolve the issue, feel free to give your ISP a call. While this may be a problem with the router, most ISP employees are at least willing to do minor preliminary troubleshooting, and will often have access to advanced tools to help them see what the modem can see.

Hi there,
The LAN lights will only turn on once you have an Ethernet cable connected to it and the other end of the cable is connected to a working computer.
If you already have a computer connected to the Ethernet port of the router via an Ethernet cable and the lights are still off. Check if the computer you have connected recognizes a network via LAN.
If the lights on the router are still off and the computer doesn't recognize a network then that means that the port for the ethernet of your Router is bad and sadly there's no way of getting that fixed but to have the router replaced.
Otherwise if the lights are off and the computer recognizes the Network and lets you connect to the internet or other computers on the same network then its just the LED of the LAN light that's broken and I think you can live with that.
Hope this helps!

I need to lock my router from others using my wifi


    • 1 Disconnect the power cord from your high-speed modem. Locate the Ethernet port on the back of your modem. If an Ethernet cable is already plugged in, trace the cable to the second device and unplug the cable from it; otherwise, plug one end of an Ethernet cable to the open Ethernet port on your modem.
    • 2 Plug the unused end of the Ethernet cable to the port on the back of the router labeled "modem." Plug a second Ethernet cable into one of the open ports located above the "modem" port; connect this cable to the Ethernet port on your computer.
    • 3 Reconnect the power cord to your modem; wait for the lights on the front panel to turn green before proceeding. Plug one end of the router's power cord into the corresponding port on the back of the device; plug the remaining end into any available electrical outlet.
    • 4 Turn on your computer and log into your operating system as normal. Insert the installation CD into the computer; the installation application should load automatically (if it doesn't, you can find the application by manually browsing the CD's contents).
    • 5 Follow the onscreen instructions; after you have made the initial configurations, click on the option labeled "Security Assistant" on the left side of the installer window. Select the desired security type for your wireless network and click on the button labeled "Next."
    • 6 Choose a network key and enter it into the appropriate field; press "Next" and follow the onscreen instructions.
    • 7 Open your computer's wireless network settings and enter the wireless network name, security type and network key into the appropriate fields. Save your changes. Set-up is now complete.
Tips & Warnings
  • You can access additional settings via the modem's manual configuration interface. Open your web browser and navigate to 192.168.2.1; when prompted for a password, leave the field blank, and click on the button labeled "Submit."For optimal signal strength, choose a location for your router that will be near your computer, with as few walls and other obstacles as possible.

Not recognizing connection


Not sure on the configuration of this model, but is there a port on it labelled WAN? If so your cable from the internet should be plugged into this one and all other cables go into the other ports.

I dont know how to set up my routers


Put the setup disk in your computer and it will step you through the process.
Typically, you will have to hook your computer directly to an internet connection (with ethernet cable), then unhook it and connect the internet cable to the router (usually in port 1), then connect an ethernet cable from the router to your computer and plug in the router.
The disk should download the appropriate software and walk you through setting up a password and stuff.
After all that, you can unhook your computer and use it wirelessly.
