Hooking up wireless router to phone jack


Please add a comment with your router model number and the type of network service that you have.

Most routers need to be connected to a modem that connects to the outside line. (Depending on your service, this could be a DSL or cable modem or a unit that connects to a phone.)

For a wired incoming network:
You connect your RJ-11 (phone cable) to the appropriate-sized port on the modem. Then connect a RJ-45 cable between the modem and your router. Then connect any wired devices via additional RJ-45 cables (many routers include a four port switch). A few have a USB connection option for one computer; most with USB ports have the other type of USB connection for sharing a hard drive or printer. Use one wired connection to set up the router, including your encryption and password to secure your wireless network. (For some ISPs, you'll need to do some extra setup, including programming your username and password. This is usually not needed for DHCP connections, where the IP address is dynamically generated.) Finally, use the encryption protocol and password to set up the wireless network on your wireless devices. (Under Windows, go to the Windows Network control panel and choose Add New Network. For other wireless devices, you'll need to find a similar setting.)

There are a few modem/router combination units. However, those are less common. They will have both the RJ-11 and RJ-45 ports. This is for wired networks. For the devices that let you share your cell phone's network, you will probably see a USB port of some type on the unit.

I hope this helps.

Linksys SPA 2102


To reset your SPA device to the factory default values, follow the steps below:

1. Disconnect the Ethernet cable
2. Access the voice menu (****) and press 73738#.
3. Login with the username "user" when accessing to http://spa-ip-address OR
login with "admin" when accessing http://spa-ip-address/admin/.

NOTE: Resetting your unit will erase all the configuration settings. If your SPA device was provisioned by a service provider, the reset function might be password protected. Contact your service provider.

The internet is slow - bypassing the router and going from modem direct to my computer and it works great - how can it test the router


So your saying, you have a cable router (modem), then you went from the cable router to a router then the PC.

If you have cable, you only use a cable router, there is no need to have a regular router after your cable modem.

If you are using the added router just for a firewall, don't, waste of time.

Just make sure that windows firewall is on and checked no incoming
connections, unless you have to for certain programs.

If you really want to stay safe, get zonealarm firewall, this will also keep software from calling home.

If you think your not safe, then do a port scan on your ip address.

Need to add Linksys WRT54G-TM wireless router with Linksys SPA 2102 phone adapter


your SPA2102-R seems to have one ethernet connection and one internet connection.
your WRT54G-TM seems to have one internet connection and 4 ethernet connections.

What you are trying to achive is; plug a ethernet cable into the ethernet connection on your SPA2102-R then plug the other end into the internet port of the WRT54G-TM

hope this helps, I have assumed that you intend to use a DSL broadband supplier not ADSL.

if you are changing service from DSL to ADSL then your WRT54G-TM needs to be first in line configured and working. then plug the internet port from the SPA2102-R into any of the WRT54G-TM ethernet ports.

2 wire 2700 hg-b


The 2Wire 2700 is a residential gateway, a modem and router in-one. There is an RJ-11 jack in the back of the gateway and this is where your dsl phone cord plugs in. There are four RJ-45 jacks in the back for connecting devices using ethernet cable. As a router is can operate both wirelessly and wired. For wireless operation you'll need the WEP key which is located on the tag on the bottom of the gateway. It's the number enclosed in brackets, between the two bar codes.

Router problems


Please answer the following questions --

Is this a new router installation?
IF so -
  • Who is your internet service provider?
  • If they are Cable TV based your wan side router configuration might be correct.
  • If they are Telco (phone line) based your wan side router configuration probably needs to be updated.
How is the connection wired
  • Starting with the cable tv coax or a phone wire plugged into a phone jack
  • Does this connect to a box provided by your service provider? (probably a modem/whatever box)
  • Does an ethernet cable (looks like a fat phone wire with wide connectors on the end ( 8 metal connection points) -- connect the modem to a single port not in a group on your router?
  • Does another ethernet cable connect one if the block of four ports to your computer?
If so you appear to be wired correctly
If not explain to be in the same order preferably how your equipment is wired.
After you reply I will provide additional steps.

Belkin N1 Router connection drops when phone rings


You may have a phone line connected from the modem to a wall outlet. Count the number of cables coming out of your modem - you should have only three: the power cable (connects to the wall), Cat 5 (also connects to the wall), and ethernet (running from the modem to the router).

Router unable to connect to internet


Are the info coming from PC connected to modem?

If you are connected to Router and pulled up that Data, you might just need a power cycle. Turn off everything from PC to router - to Modem and Power on everything starting off with the modem this time. After power cycle, check if getting the same data. If yes, then type "ping yahoo.com" if you have four replies then you must be able to go online, if not then disable firewall (norton, maccafee etc)
