    When the power goes out, I just have to unplug everything from the router and plug it all back in, left to right. Wait until 3 lights quit blinking, then try to acess internet. This usually works for me.

If your ISP is DSL based, try the following:

Click Start > Run. Type in cmd. (For Vista users click start, and search for cmd. Make sure to right click and select Run as Administrator).

When a black box pops up on the screen, type in ipconfig and press enter. Look for the words Default Gateway. Next to it may be 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1. Whichever it is, type in that into your address bar of your web browser. A dioloug box pops up. Leave the username field blank and type in admin for the password. Wheen the page opens, scroll down until you see Local IP Address. Change is to 192.168.2.1. Scroll down and click save settings. Once that is done, log in the page again. You should be connected to the itnernet now, being that your cables are wired correctly.

How do i set up my router msi


Is that a standalone router or a modem/router combination ? If it is a standalone router, in order to set up a home network to access the Internet, you need a modem (cable modem or DSL modem) which must be given to you by your Internet provider when you subscribe for Internet service. Your Internet provider has to provide instructions on how to set up your modem. A modem acts as a router too and has a WLAN port and a number of LAN ports (between 1 and 4). The WLAN port is where you hook up your modem to the Internet using an Ethernet cable. One end of the Ethernet cable goes into WLAN port of the modem/router and the other end goes either into a cable outlet (if your Internet provider is a cable company such as Comcast) or a phone jack if your Internet provider is a phone company such as AT&T or Verizon). To connect your desktop computer to the Internet, you plug it in any of the LAN ports on the modem/router. Contact your Internet provider for set up instructions for your specific brand and type of modem.

Hope this helps.

I cant get wifi and internet on my computer at the same time


Hi. Let's hava look at what you are doing.

I'm guessing that you have a cable modem a dlink router with wifi and a computer, right?
If you connect the cable modem to the computer you have internet. You shouild also have wfi but the wifi will not give you internet because it is disconnected from the modem.
The Dlink has to be connected to the modem but it will also need to be configured. To *** that you will need help from your cable company.
The connections should be. Modem connected to the outside world. Dlink connected to the Modem. Computer connected to the Dlink by either wifi or Ethernet.

I have an at&t 2wire 2701hg-b but i dont have at&t internet i have charter and i am not able to figure out how to get my internet to work with this router please help


att 2 wire is a Adsl Modem (Requires a telephone line jack to get the signals) but charter communication is a cable internet service (not DSL) , Requires a TV cable service for internet .
These two jacks differs and there working differs ..
Means : Att works with the username and password type of authentication but charter requires the MAC address of modem for authentication .
Therefore for a cable internet 2wire 2701hg-b modem cant be used . But yes in case charters has username and password authentication and works with the telephone jack in house then its possible to use the same modem.

I can connect to the router on both of my computers and my ps3 but i cant connect to ther internet. also if i plug my modem into the router and then plug my computer into the router i cant connect that...


I think you will need to reconfigure the router.
You can access the Internet when you connect the computer to the modem. That means the modem is working fine.
Connect the modem to the Internet port on the router and computer to port 1 on the router. Press and hold the reset button on the rotuer for 30 seconds. Release the reset button and wait for 30 seconds. Power cycle the router and reconfigure it.
Follow this link to reconfigure the router.

Connect MSI RG54G2 to speadstream 4200


so that means if you connect the computer to the modem, it works but not with the router.
it seems that the router and the modem are not communicating with each other.
When you connect the computer to the modem , check the IP address through the modem. If ti is private IP address then you will need to change the settigns on the router.

Says connection is excellent but i cant browse ..when i restart my modem and my router the internet works for about a min and then it stops again.


Contact your cable or dsl company and have them check to see if your modem is working correctly. If the modem goes up and down it will change the ip address and then your router will have to be restarted in order for you go get to the internet. If you want to rule out the router plug in a differnt one and if the problem persists I would say it is the modem.

How do i hook up a westell router to a moterola comcast modem?


Okay, well something is obviously wrong.
This is how it should be connected. Internet to modem, then with an Ethernet cable, connect the modem to the router (jack1) then with another Ethernet cable, connect the router (jack2) to the computer.
If you are still having problems, then contact your company to see if they could walk you through it, or if they needed to set things up.
Also, where are you connecting your laptop from? Is it very far from the router? Perhaps your router's signal strength isn't great enough? (This would mean getting a new, more powerful router.)
