That "large phone chord" is actually an ethernet cable or RJ-45. Its very similar to the RJ-11 telephone cable but they cannot be interchanged. One is strictly for networking computers the other one is only for telephone.

here's a good video that explains how to hook it up, youtube has a lot of good videos on the topic of routers

Hi. Just bought a WRT120N. My problem is I do not have a cd rom on my pc. what must i do to install this without the cd? Thank you.

Hi there,

You can go to the Linksys website at and install the Drivers from there. The drivers on the DVD are probably outdated anyways so installing from the website assures you're getting the latest drivers.

Linksys router will not connect to internet

The modem looks like a cable modem from what I have found. You should press the small reset button on the back of the router for about 3 seconds and it should go back to factory settings. Connect the router to the modem and unplug power to the modem, then power it back on and the modem should recognize the router. If this works make sure to login to the router and set passwords and security to something other then the defaults. The Linksys routers usually are addressed at with a default username blank and password of admin. Good Luck

Wii connection issues.

You can check if the problem is with the internet connection going to the Wii or just the wireless connection.

When you loose connection, check the Wii's ip address. If it does not have an ip address(or ip is 169.xx.xx.xx) that means that the Wii is disconnecting from the wireless network. You can then try other wireless channels on your router.

If the Wii is still getting an ip of 192.168.x.x, that means that the problem is the internet from the router. You might need to forward ports on the router for your Wii.
