Reset you router and try again. To do that insert a pin into a small hole situated on the back of the unit and hold a few seconds (all the lights will turn on)

Check your connections.

Linksys router not recognize internet


Make sure your router's WAN port is set to dynamic IP. If the light on the front doesn't glow/blink for the WAN port, try a different cable. If a different cable doesn't work it's probably toast. :( This problem appears to be directly linked to the relationship between the WAN port and the modem. Given that the devices can connect to the router, but not internet, it has to be the WAN. Sometimes if the modem goes out it will send too much voltage through to the router and fry the WAN. Had that happen to my parents router. If the above doesn't "fix ya" then try a different router.

Worst case, you might have to put a wireless card in your PC and bridge the modem (wired connection) to the wireless card and broadcast for your wireless devices. At least until you get a new router.

Modem light is blank on motorola wr850g, how do i fix?


If the modem light is not turning ON,
1) check if the modem is ON
2) check if the ethernet connection is properly made
3) check if the port on the modem is working, confirm it by connecting it straight to the computer.
4) check if the ethernet cable is working fine.
5) Then try power cycling the router. Unplug the power cable and connect in back after 20-30 secs.
6) Then try pressing and holding the reset for 20 secs.
7) Finally connect a single ethernet cable from any LAN port to WAN port and check if the modem light is ON.
Ultimately, if even after this step, if the light doesn't turn up, either the modem LED would have gone bad or the WAN part of the router would have gone bad.


For further clarifications, revert!
Thanks for asking,

Slow dsl


The cable modem should be connected to the WAN port of the router. Then the computers should be connected to any ports from 1-4 at the back of the router.

Once they are connected properly. Reset the router. Just hold the reset button for 10 seconds. Then turn off the modem, router and all computers.

Then you need to turn on the modem first, wait for the lights to become solid green, then turn on the router. Once the WAN light on the router is on, turn on the computers and check if there is internet connection.

If still no internet connection, contact your ISP. They might need to clone the mac address of router to their end.

Hope this helps! Good luck!

The router normally goes between the Cable Modem (or DSL line) and the computer. Use a CAT-5 cable to connect modem to the WAN input connector on your router (the connector labelled "Internet), then another CAT-5 cable goes between any of the ports and your computer. Using your web browser, go to 192.168.1.1 and continue with the router setup, choose an SSID (what you name your network), followed by Wireless Security if your router supports wireless as well. I like WPA-PSK[TKIP] for its simplicity. Anyway, the router is now useaqble by other computers!

Router is not working


What does this line mean? "It's reading all the other computers but isn't working."

Do you mean that the other computers are hard-wired to ports 1, 2, 3 & four on the back of the router? Or are you going totally wireless? Is your cable, or satellite modem plugged into the port labeled WAN?

1. Place the router in an open and central location. Do not plug the power adapter into the router.

2. Turn the power off on your modem. If there is no on/off switch, then unplug the modem’s power adapter. Shut down your computer.

3. Unplug the Ethernet cable from your modem and plug it into the WAN port on the router.

4. Plug an Ethernet cable into one of the four LAN ports on the router. Plug the other end into the Ethernet port on your computer.

5. Turn on or plug in your modem and wait for it to go through its boot cycle. It takes about 30 seconds. Watch the lights on the modem to tell when it has finished booting.

6. Plug the power adapter into your router. Again, wait about 30 seconds for the router to boot.

7. Turn on your computer.

8. Verify the link lights on the router. The power light, WAN light, and the LAN light for the port you plugged your computer into.

Now, open Internet Explorer (web browser) and in the Address line, type 192.168.0.1 and hit enter. You should see a login screen. Enter a user ID of admin and leave the password blank.

This should log you into the configuration utility for your router. You should see a Setup Wizard button that will walk you through setting up your router.

Signal found, but no connectivity


Try this. It should renew your configuration between your router and your internet provider:

Step 1 Log into the web-based configuration by typing in the IP address of the router (default:192.168.0.1) in your web browser. The username is admin (all lowercase) and the password is blank (nothing).

Note: The 192.168.0.1 address is NOT on the internet. It is the address to the router itself.

Step 2 Click the Home tab and click the WAN button. Dynamic IP Address is the default value, however, if Dynamic IP Address is not selected as the WAN type, select Dynamic IP Address by clicking on the radio button. Click Clone Mac Address. Click on Apply and then Continue to save the changes.

Step 3 Click on Status. Under WAN, Click DHCP Renew. If it does not get an IP address or times out, then continue with Step 4.

Step 4 Power cycle the cable modem and router:

Turn the cable modem off (first)
Turn the router off
Leave them off for 2 minutes**
Turn the cable modem on (first)
Wait until you get a solid cable light on the cable modem
Turn the router on
Wait 30 seconds

** If you have a Motorola (Surf Board) modem, leave off for at least 5 minutes.

Step 5 Follow Step 1 again and log back into the web configuration. Click the Status tab and click the Device Info button. If you do not already have a public IP address under the WAN heading, click on the DHCP Renew and Continue buttons.
If you're still getting no connection to the internet, another alternative (before chucking the router) would be to reset it to factory defaults, and run through the setup process again, from scratch.

Cheers

Modem light goes RED if No external Ethernet device has been attached and detected OR The Ethernet link is down.
in your case it is going to be the DSL MODEM ....

Second cause could be The WAN interface has been disabled by the firmware.

TO enable it log on to your router's address http://192.168.10.1.

and look for WAN options.

D link cd


  1. Then u have to setup ur router first
  2. Turn off the power on your computer.
  3. Securely connect an end of an Ethernet cable to your computer, as shown.
  4. Securely connect the other end to any of the router's four LAN ports.
  5. Connect a second Ethernet cable from the router's single WAN port to the modem.
  6. Make sure the modem is connected to the jack or cable to the Internet that was set up by your ISP.
    1. Start your network in this order:
      1. Turn the modem power off.
      2. Turn the router power off.
      3. Turn the modem power back on. Wait two minutes until the lights are stable.
      4. Turn the router power back on. Wait one minute until the lights are stable.
      5. Turn the computer power back on.
    2. Open an Internet browser, and type http://192.168.0.1. If a "Configuration Assistant" appears immediately, then do not follow the rest of these instructions. Follow the Configuration Assistant instructions, instead. Once you are finished, test your Internet connection by browing online,
    3. Type admin for User Name, and password is blank. (do no type any thing for password.)
    4. Click OK. This logs you into the router.
    5. Click the Home tab and click the WAN button. Dynamic IP Address is the default value, however, if Dynamic IP Address is not selected as the WAN type, select Dynamic IP Address by clicking on the radio button. Click Clone Mac Address. Click on Apply and then Continue to save the changes.
    6. Power cycle the cable modem and router:
      • Turn the cable modem off (first)
      • Turn the router off
      • Leave them off for 2 minutes**
      • Turn the cable modem on (first)
      • Wait until you get a solid cable light on the cable modem
      • Turn the router on
      • Wait 30 seconds

      that would fix your problem..
      in case if yoy have any problem revert back with your internet service providers name.(isp).
