First you will have to log into the router (typically 192.168.1.1 in a web browser)  On the main screen you should see Network Configuration, just drop the menu down and choose DHCP. Save the Settings and reboot the router and new modem simultaneously.
If you don't have any settings saved into the router, you could also just hold the reset button on the back for 10 seconds, this will default back to original settings.
Good Luck!

How do i connect my WG302 to my laptop using a console cable?


if Windows
go to dosprompt on p.c or start run cmd <press the enter key>
type in ipconfig <press the enter key>
was the ip address of the laptop 192.168.0.210 with a subnet of 255.255.255.0 ?
note the ip address of the laptop and the subnet mask
If the ip address is not 192.168.0.210 then go into the network settings and set the laptop up with 192.168.0.210 and then make it a static ip address.
go to dosprompt on p.c or start run cmd <press the enter key>
type in ipconfig <press the enter key>
was the ip address of the laptop 192.168.0.210 with a subnet of 255.255.255.0 ? (if not restart the laptop ) and check again
Next question how did you connect the wg302 directly to the laptop was it directly connected or was it through a network switch or network hub. Most likely the Cable router or DSL router has a DCHP server assigning different ip address lease range. You can either change the ip address of the access point device to one in the original current router lease range and assign it as static for the wireless access point device in the dchp lease table or assign the wireless access point with the second ip address as an example 10.0.0.2 and make sure the router dchp server allocates above 10.0.0.20 then temporarily connect router to laptop and temporily set laptop with 192.168.0.210 and then log into access point and change ip address to 10.0.0.2 for wireless access point device and turn off its dchp server. Then change laptop to use dhcp while connected into network hub or network switch with original router and restart laptop wired back into original normal network.

I just switched from cable modem to dsl modem..dsl modem gets on the internet when connected directly to computer..once connected to router doesnt connect to internet


Your new ISP is DSL. the router was working before with the cable modem. The settings for the cable and DSL ISP are different. Now your computer is working when you connect it directly to the DSL modem. that means the modem is working.
The DSL modem works on 2 different modes.
You will need to check which mode is your modem working on and according to the settings of your modem you will need to set up the router.
To change the settings of the router, you will need to open the set up page of the router.

No internet access with wireless


Hi,

First of all check the DSL cable must be in WAN port of the linksys router. if it is done then do the following.

Actually DSL modem and Linksys router are conflicting with their IP class. Means DSL and Linksys routers are using the same IP class of 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.0.1.

You must change one's IP class because both are routers and if they having same class they cant communicate. Unplug the WAN cable of the linksys. open browser and put ip 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.0.1 any one which works for u in the address bar. Username and password hopefully be admin admin or just admin and password blank field.
when you access the linksys router configuration page then come to LAN configuration. If there IP is 192.168.1.1 then change it to 192.168.0.1 and if it is 192.168.0.1 then change it to 192.168.1.1 Save configuration and reboot your laptop and plug dsl cable to linksys WAN port.
Hope now this will work.

Have SBCglobal with 2wire but want N wireless capability


Follow the dots -

2 wire DSL wire to back of DSL modem.

Ethernet cable out of DSL modem, to current router (if you have one).

Ethernet cable out of current router (if you have one) to new Wireless N router.

If you currently have a wireless G router, keep it, or, use the new Wireless G/N router alone. You will need to set up all security settings again if you remove your current router, and if the new router is N only, you will need to make sure all your wireless connecting computers have wireless N cards in them.

Linksys WRT54G wireless router not compatible with Aztech modem?


Darvin, gotta love your ISP. Never fear......

if it isn't too much of a problem (knowing you have wireless setup done already), then do a factory reset on your router ** remember to copy the WEP Key if you have, or recall the PASS PHRASE so you won't have to reset all wireless devices ** Reset is located on back, you need a ball point pen to reach the reset switch.

Reset process: unplug, take ballpoint pen & insert into reset switch & plug unit back in. Sometimes tricky, but you should notice green light goes to yellow/orange upon resetting.

RESET or NOT - you want the Linksys set for ::

Connection Type - AUTOMATIC (for automatic discovery)
Router IP Address - 192.168.2.1

DCHP - ON, Addresses - 192.168.2.100 and allow 5-50 users
(for security, assign the number of DESKTOP + WIRELESS expected users +1, this way you don't get overrun without knowlege)

Take the cable from Aztech ETHERNET OUT to WAN on Linksys. (usually BLUE) (??) not 100% sure as I have the little silver pocket edition of the same Router. - power cycle (turn both DSL modem & Linksys off for 20 seconds. turn on DSL Modem, wait till it's about as ready as possible, turn on Linksys, should only take 20-30 seconds to power up & recognize.

VERIFY SETTINGS: access router - 192.168.2.1, goto STATUS. you should see IP Addressing, SubNet, DNS1 & DNS2 settings. If you do not, then you have no internet connection.

ALTERNATIVE,

Setup Linksys Router with COnnection Type: PPoE, you will need your ISP assigned ID & Password. Follow all other instructions properly.

If you still have problems, please contact me at 906-495-1707 or via Yahoo IM junodr@yahoo.com or through this website.

Trying to get my linksys wireless router to go on dsl .


All you need to do is change the Linksys router's IP address. Because the westell and the linksys has the same range of IP address that creates a conflict on your network that's why you can't get online.

First login to the setup page of your linksys router.
  1. Under the Setup Tab (this is the first screen that you will see after typing in the linksys router's password.) make sure that the Internet connection type is set to Automatic Configuration- DHCP, Then on the same page look for router IP address or LAN IP address. By default its 192.168.1.1, you need to change it to 192.168.2.1. And hit save settings. You will get disconnected from the linksys page, that is normal. If you want to log back in to the router page you use the new address of your linksys (192.168.2.1).
  2. Now you restart your computer to refresh the connection and that should get you online.
