Question about Arris Wireless G Broadband Router (wr850g)

2 Answers

No connection with router

I moved my computer and have connected everything back up as it was. I cannot only get an internet connection straight from modem to computer. When I go through the wireless router there is no connection. I have the set up CD and have gone through all the steps, but no luck. I don't understand because the wireless router has been working for years and eveything was fine. I did not disconnect anything just unplugged and slid the desk to another wall and plugged the power source back in but now this problem of no connection through the router.

Hello, Unfortunately, ISP techs often try to put blame on their clients equipment as much as possible. If your computer is showing limited connectivity, then this means that it is able to successfully connect to your wireless router, meaning that its probably not your adapter. Limited connectivity usually is a sign that you cannot reach the internet. This could be caused by multiple issues. In order to isolate the problem, try connecting your computer directly into your modem using the cable from the wireless router. If you can connect to the internet, then it is a configuration problem with your router. If not, then it is something with your connection to your ISP, in which case you need to call your ISP back and explain that situation. If you do happen to connect to the internet, then please reply, and we can go from there.

There must be a small reset button on your router. Hold it down for 30 seconds. Release it. wait for one minute. Now unplug the power and plug it back in. Wait for 1 minute.
Once you reset the router, it will come back to factory default settings.
You will need to reconfigure the router form the start according to your Internet service provider.

Have 2 desktops and we need internet connection on both


Hello...if your son's desktop is set up near the router, the simplest way is connect his desktop to the router via an ethernet cable.

To do this, find an ethernet cable. Plug one end into a spare port (socket) on the back of the router, and the other into the ethernet port on his desktop (it should look like this, with the ethernet symbol under it).

That's it! He should soon be connected to the internet.

NOTE: If you need to buy an ethernet cable, key words to look for are Cat5e or Cat6, straight or patch cable - NOT crossover.

If your son's desktop is not near the router, you may want to consider a wireless connection. Please come back to Fixya if this is the case, as this takes a little more time.

Wireless connection


Make sure that your computer is getting a valid IP address from the router. If your wireless network is secured, you might as well consider checking the wireless settings.

Connecting


i have the same problem i moved and hooked everything up and now i cant get my router up and running or at least not with the internet. when it plug straight up to the cable modem i get the internet but when i hook it up to the network it has limited or no connection and i have been working on this thing for about a week. i think it is something small that i am over looking or something. i have it from the wall to the cable modem,from the cable modem to the router and then from the router to the computer. the cables i am using all work because i tested them straight from the computer to the cable modem and they worked

Internet


Start from ground zero
1. Is everything Powered up?
2. Check you internet connection
a. Can you directly connect to the internet by connecting a computer to the device providing the internet?
If this is good, then do this for later. ( it may not be needed but is good to have)
go to 'Start' -> 'Run' ->CMD[Enter]
Now you have a DOS box.
here
type CD \[Enter]
type IPCONFIG /all > ipdata.txt[Enter]
exit[Enter]
This copies the working IP Config that may be needed later.
Now connect in this order Internet connection to WAN Connection of router
Then connect one of the the LAN Connections of the router to
the working computer.
Turn off everything for 15 min.
No I am not kidding. Technical reason: Clear the ARP Table back at the ISP.
Restart the router then the computer.
Still no internet?
More details will be needed.

On and off line every 20 flashes.


Have you attempted to connect the internet after the router stops flashing? Do the lights start flashing again? If you do, then it would be considered normal.

If they don't and you do not have an internet connection, try the next step.

Next, plug your computer straight into the modem - Do you have an internet connection now? If you do, your router may require configuration.
