Broken Ethernet Port

I'm trying to set up my router (Linksys WRT110) and it says to connect a cable to my internet port. Unfortunately that port in my laptop is broken. Is there any way around this.

Thanks!

You say "your Ethernet Port" (= LAN port)
If unavailable try using any USB to rj45 adapter and you can use any USP port.
Check this device:Linksys - USB200M - Compact USB 2.0 10/100 Network Adapter (20 $?) or similar

The easiest way is to run a long Ethernet cable from one of the 'LAN' (or 'network') ports on the "first" router to the 'WAN' (or 'Internet') port on the second router. The "first" router is the one connected to your cable-modem or DSL-modem. Both routers will auto-configure themselves for this "wired" connection. Configure the wireless-adapter in the second router as per normal.

Or, run a long Ethernet cable from the cable-modem (or DSL-modem) to a location in the "center" of your home, where you can put your wireless-router, such that its signal spans the entire building.

Or, move the cable-modem (or DSL-modem) to a location in the "center" of your home, and connect the one router at that location.

My linksys w/2phone ports cannot hook up with the ethernet


Most Cable Internet Service Providers (ISPs) use Media Access Control (MAC) Address authentication to establish Internet connection for end-users. MAC address is a unique identifier assigned to the network adapter/s of the computer.
To set up your Linksys router to work with a Cable ISP, you have to enable the MAC Clone feature of the router. MAC Cloning is a procedure which enables a router to copy the MAC address of the computer registered with the ISP.
To set up a Linksys router with Cable connection, you need to perform four steps using the computer that's been registered with the ISP:
i. Verifying Internet Connection
ii. Connecting the Devices Together
iii. Checking the Router's LEDs
iv. Setting Up a Linksys Router for Cable Internet Connection

Verifying Internet Connection
Connect the computer to the Broadband modem using an Ethernet cable without the router installed. If you cannot get online, contact your ISP. If it's online, use the computer to set up the router.
NOTE: Some cable modems use the USB port. If the physical connection is via USB port, you may not be able to go online via Ethernet connection. Contact your ISP to have the Ethernet port of the modem configured.

Connecting the Devices Together
After confirming the Internet connection through the modem, connect the modem to the Internet port of the router; connect the computer to any of the four Ethernet ports at the back of the router. For instructions, click here.
Checking the Router's LEDs
After connecting the devices together, check the lights on the front panel of the router. Ensure that the Internet light, as well as numbered light corresponding to the Ethernet port where the computer is connected, is lit. For further instructions, click here.
Setting Up a Linksys Router for Cable Internet Connection

Step 1:
Access the router's web-based setup page. For instructions, click here.

NOTE: If you are using a Mac computer to access the router's web-based setup page, click here.

Step 2:
On the Setup tab, click the MAC Address Clone sub-tab.

Step 3:
Select Enabled then click Clone My PC's MAC.

kb17251-003_en.png

Step 4:
Click Save Settings.

Step 5:
Click the Status tab.

kb17251-004_en.png

Step 6:
Check the Internet IP Address. If the Internet IP Address has numbers, this means the router has been properly configured. You should now be able to access the Internet. If you're still unable to access the Internet, powercycle the modem, the router and then restart the computer.

kb17251-005_en.png

NOTE: If the IP address is still 0.0.0.0, click IP Address Release then, click IP Address Renew. If this does not change the IP Address, powercycle the modem, the router and then restart the computer.

No internet connection...


Check your cable-connections:

AC power to the router.

Cable-modem <----> WAN-port on the router.
or
DSL-modem <----> WAN-port on the router.

LAN-port on the router <----> Ethernet port on your computer.

Windows 7 should show that you have obtained an IP-address,
starting with '192.168.' that was supplied by the router.

Note that some ISPs (Internet Service Providers) will require
that you tell them the MAC (Media Acccess Control) address
of the _ROUTER_ before the router will be able to connect,
through the ISP's services, to the Internet. Contact your ISP.

Router will not route to another router of same type


The hughes modem is not a router.
What are you trying to do? Install the Linksys?

Plug the ethernet port on the Hugnes to the "Internet" or "WAN" port of the Linksys.

Then if you go into the config of the Linksys, you can tell if it gets a public IP address.

Unable to Connect to Internet


Make sure that the cable/dsl modem is connected to the blue port on the Linksys router that say's internet and your computer to any of the yellow ethernet ports. Check what is the IP address of your computer by typing ipconfig on the command prompt(assuming your using Windows, to open command prompt click start and go to Run and type cmd, a black windows will open normally it will say C:\Document\Settings\Owner>. Your computer should obtain an IP address of 192.168.1.x, open Internet Explorer and type this address on the address bar http://192.168.1.1 when you get a prompt for a username and a password, leave the username blank and type "admin" for a password from there you can now check the entire settings of your linksys router, check the Status and make sure your router is getting a valid Internet IP address if not you may require manually setting up the configuration of your ISP on the router.
