Make sure the Modem is plugged into the correct port on the E1000 (far left port labelled 'internet' on a yellow background). Unplug all the devices power cables and restart them in order from the wall (modem - router - PC/MAC) make sure the modem has link and activity lights flashing, if there is a light for 'internet' wait for it to be on before plugging in the router. You might want to call your ISP and confirm theres nothing funky with the line/modem.
You cannot use a Wireless Access Point (WAP) to connect directly to your IPS's modem. A WAP does not provide the ability to share a single IP address on the internet like a router does.
Either return the WAP for a refund and buy a wireless router or buy an Ethernet wired-only router and plug the WAP into the LAN side of that router. You would then plug the WAN side of the Ethernet wired router into your modem.
If you recently started using cordless phones that use the 2.4GHz frequency spectrum, this can cause your WiFi signals to drop-out.
Other forms of interference can come from:
Bluetooh enabled devices
Other nearby WiFi routers/APs using the same channel
Additionally, if you haven't secured your router using WPA/WPA2 security, a neighbor may be leeching off of your WiFi network and download files on P2P networks. This would cause your router to become saturated with traffic and appear to crash. Make sure that your router is properly secured with WPA/WPA2 security (not WEP, since it can be cracked within a few minutes) and make sure that you change the admin password.
wireless light will be ON only if you have connected any wireless devices to your network...
security light will be ON only if you enabled password to connect to your wireless network....
if you have changed any settings in the router recently,
then delete the saved list of networks in the computer....
then search for wireless networks in range and connect to your network....
First RESET your router to defaults settings.Press RESET button for 10 seconds it is in back side of router. Then connect your router to computer with ethernet cable then you can access it with default link http://192.168.1.1 or http://192.168.0.1 Type user as "admin" and password as "admin" or blank or "password" Then you can see configuration page of router. Then configure your router again set WAN settings as your interent service provider. Enable DHCP if you want iip automatic from router. CLcik on wireless and enable it .Configure your router as WEP or WAP then add code it is your password to connect internet. Then save and restart router and computer. Then connect internet. Let me know if you need further assistance. Thanks for using FixYa.
Power up the modem and wait for the appropriate lights (power, ethernet, and activity – something along these lines)
the modem and router with an ethernet cable (if there is a WAN port on
the router make sure to put the cable in this port).
Port 1 on the router to the network card on the computer using an
ethernet cable and check to see there is a light at the correct port.
a web browser, such as Internet Explorer or Firefox. Input your routers
id (usually an IP address or an URL) in the browsers address bar and
press Enter. The address bar is where you would normally see, for
example, http://www.google.ca If you don't know the IP address (such
as 192.168.1.1) or the URL, try going to the manufacturers web site and
downloading a manual.
a window will open asking for a user name and password (these are given
to you in the instructions of the router). For example, Dlink sets up
some of their routers as, username: admin and leave the password field
blank then press OK.
you are in the configuration page of your router (wireless most
probably). Here you can set the encryption, new passwords etc… If your
not comfortable doing these on your own most routers have a wizard that
you can follow.
everything goes alright and the settings are successful you can now try
the wireless connection. Go to a machine with a wireless card, right
the computer with the wireless connection, make sure the connection is
on You might be trying to connect to the network by using either the
application that came with the router or windows wireless
configuration. Right click the icon in the system tray and “view
available networks”. If it comes up in a window saying “Windows is not
setup for wireless networks” then you must right click on the correct
icon in the tray.
in the list of available networks, click on the name of your network
Click on "connect" and it should ask for your security id (the
encryption code). Put in the code (usually twice) and click connect or
OK. It should now be "acquiring anip address" and in a few minutes it should be connected.
Ok, so why do you need an access point upstairs and a router downstairs connected wirelessly? If you can't connect with a laptop or a pc, why whould you think you could connect the access point? The purpose of this configuration would have to be with the access point to the router via ethernet. What's the point? If the problem is range, check out http://www.dd-wrt.com/dd-wrtv2/index.php to enhance the capabilities of the WRT54G... and maybe building a parabolic antenna for it as well.
