Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Appreciate the direct "Ask Me".

As to your concerns:

  1. port my wireless internet uses - the WiFi does not use any specialize ports to operate. It uses all ports as deemed necessary to accomplish communication. This is effect is just a LAN card with no wires. Don't have idea what you need the ports for not unless you need to do port forwarding or for some games blocked by your router or firewall, but pls see below the basics:
  • by default, HTTP uses port 80 and HTTPS uses port 443
  • FTP uses port 21
  • email, 25 and 110
  • internet keeps on making this weird sound on my home phone - do you have a ADSL In-Line Filter/Splitter like the image shown below? If yes, pls check if the phone is connected to the phone and vice-versa. There are instances where they could have been reversed. If correct, it may require replacement.

I just installed the internet at home from mediacom and i needed to plug my d-link router to have a wireless network at home and i dont have the configuration disk for my router and i dont know how to make...


You NEVER need that CD-ROM disk. :-)

Use an Ethernet cable to connect from a LAN port on the router to the network-port on your computer.

Click Start.
Click Run.
Type CMD
Press Enter.
Type IPCONFIG
Press Enter.
Look for output similar to:
Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.123.456
Start Internet Explorer.
Type http://192.168.123.456 (or whatever value that you saw).
Login to the router (ID: admin, password: [blank]).
Click to run the "Wireless Networking Setup Wizard".
Enter an SSID.
Choose an encryption-level (use: 'WPA').
Choose a password for your wireless network.
Save the changes.

Disconnect the Ethernet cable, and click "View Available Wireless Networks". Connect to the SSID that you chose, and enter the password.

How to connect to the internet


You should have a home modem from and ISP (Internet Service Provider) Also If you have a router you need to plug the Ethernet Cord (the cord that looks like a Giant phone line) into the internet port of the router, Now if the router is a wireless router and you want to use the internet wirelessly you need to open your wireless connections and you will see your router in the list. Simply double click the connection and it will automatically connect for you. If you do not have a wireless router and you want to connect more than one computer to the internet,Simply keep the ethernet cord plugged into the internet port on the router and you should have 4 other ports next to each other. Plug another ethernet cord into port 1 and plug into the back or side of computer. That's it. I hope this helped have a good day

Need wpa key to set up internet with my ps3 but dont know wat that is?


WPA is a Wireless Internet Authentication technology. It is setup through your home wireless router. If you have home wireless internet, you should know your WPA or WEP key. However, you dont have Wireless, you might just want to run a network cable from your router to the Playstation.

Wiring schematic for this router


Jehayman,

I am not if you are referring to the Ethernet connection when you said connections to the telephone line. Your WRT54G does not have a telephone port, it has an Ethernet port. If you would like to know how to connect this router to your network here is how you can do it.

If you look on the back of your router, there will be 5 Ethernet ports there (looks like a phone port but it's bigger). They are labeled 1,2,3,4, and WAN or Internet.

The ports labeled 1-4 are for your computer/s that will connect to the router through wired connection using an Ethernet cable. The port all by itself labeled WAN or Internet is where the modem should go to. If you dont have a modem from your ISP and just have a line that is plugged in straight to the computer, that line can be plugged in to that port.

Dont have internet connection on my laptop


First change your LAN ip range on WRT54g, leave the wan interface as dynamic IP client. Connect your WAN port to the DSL router interface. ping your DSL router interface (most probably your DSL router will be having 192.168.1.1). Make sure that your laptop is not assigned with any static IP (Incase you use the laptop in home n work).

Hi,

Below is part of my reply to a latter post of yours.

  • internet keeps on making this weird sound on my home phone - do you have a ADSL In-Line Filter/Splitter like the image shown below? If yes, pls check if the phone is connected to the phone and vice-versa. There are instances where they could have been reversed. If correct, it may require replacement.

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.

Wireless Network for my laptop


You must purchase a wireless router. I recommend Linksys. If your laptop has ethernet capabilities this will work just fine. (ethernet ports look like oversized phone cord ports) they are very simple to use and install in minutes. just be sure to make sure your network is password locked!
If this helps, I would really appreciate a FixYa! rating. If not, do not hesitate to contact me. I own a linksys wireless router, and can help you install it, if need be. Have a good day!
