Question about Linksys Wireless-G Broadband Router

1 Answer

Couldn't get internet via Wirless Router

My DSL Connection

1mb connection using a Smart AX MT880(HUAWEI) ADSL Model

My Wireless Router

TP-Link TL-WR641G/TL-WR642G

Problem

Normally my internet works fine. Today I bought this router and connected it according to the instructions given in the guide. I connected one end of the LAN wire to the WAN port on the Wireless Router and the other end to the ADSL Modem. Secondly connected one end of another LAN wire to the LAN Card on my PC and other end in one of the LAN ports on the wireless router. In short all done according to the instructions in the instruction guide.

Now I entered 192.168.1.1 in the internet explorer and again followed all the instructions given in the guide but even after that internet does not works. I even selected other options (there were three PPPoE, Dynamic IP and Static IP). Choose all three(except Static IP where it asks me for IP address and Subnet Mask which I dont know). Entered correct username and password under PPPoE but still no luck.

What am I doing wrong and what is the solution?
I am sure most of you must be thinking that I should get my IP address and Subnet mask from my ISP and enter it under the 'Static IP' choice but when I am not using the router, my settings are to detect IP address and other stuff automatically i.e. I have not assigned any predefined IPs/Subnets etc

    It may be that you indeed have to set a static IP. You can find your IP address by hooking your computer straight into the modem adn do an ipconfig from the command line. Then hook up the router again and set the staic IP in the router to the one that your computer obtained. I run into this alot when my clients are using DSL service.

    What router and modem do you have?

HI! I bliv u are having some issue setting up ur router.. I will be more than glad to assist u. here are the steps u need to do:

1. press the reset button on the back of the router for 20sec..while pressing the reset button, unplug the power plug and after 2secs while pressing the reset button plug it back in and press for 30secs after that unplug the router for 15secs then plug it back in..once all the lights are solid and ok
2. connect the ethernet cable to port1 of the router and the other end to the lan port of your computer..
3. pull up ur browser then type at the url:192.168.1.1.or 192.168.0.1 or u can check the routers default gateway by right clicking the network icon on the lower right of your task bar and click on status and it will show the ip address of the computer, subnetmask and default gateway, the default gateway is the routers ip address, once u type in to the url, it will ask u the username and password, by default the username is admin and the password is 1234 or just leave it blank
4. it will show the setup page of the router. u can set the router on the specific internet setup that u have.
a. if ur isp is a cable company, normaly u need to do a mac clone on the router setup page by cloning the computer that is reg to the cable company, how to determine it. ex. the computer that is reg to the cable company is a desktop or laptop, if this computer is connected to the modem directly and u can access internet.
b. once u determined it u need to connect this computer directly to the router and do a mac clone and set ur internet settings to auto-dhcp..then save the settings and after that, unplug to the power of the modem and router, plug in 1st the power of the modem then once all lights lit, plug in the router, then once all lights lit, try to pull up a browser that ur computer is connected directly to the router.. ur cable connection shud be, cable from the modem will go to the WAN port of the router and connect ethernet cable on port1 going to the lan port of the computer..once u can access the internet, u can now access again the setup page of the router by typing at the url:192.168.1.1 and u can setup the wireless settings, u need to create a ssid or wireless name and a security..
5. If ur isp is a dsl normaly they give u a username and password to connect to the internet, ur settings on the router should be PPPoe
6. If ur isp gives u a static ip address settings, u need to set the router to isp setup.
a. how to check the isp of the isp given to u..
1. click on start
2. run
3. type cmd
4. it will show a dos prompt
5. from the dos prompt type ipconfig/all
6. it will list the ip address, subnet, default gateway, dns server
this settings should be type in to the settings on the router for static ip addressing..

With the steps that I given to you, it was mention earlier that u used the pppoe, dhcp, but not static ip, if your computer is directly connected to the adsl modem it works perfectly. this is the specs of ur modem:
Supporting 1483B bridging and routing function Supporting DHCP server, NAT/NAPT , PAP/CHAP, IP Filter, Firewall, protocol block Built-in PPPOE/PPPOA dialing..

you can try two option:

1. your modem is equip of supporting dhcp server, if u can access ur modem and set it to bridge mode so that the dhcp server wont conflict with the router bcoz the router has a dhcp capabilities as well.
2. you need to disable the dhcp of the router so that the modem will act as the server and will give ip address to your computers..

this 3rd option will be your last solution if both dont work..

try to check the ip address of the modem, if the the ip address of the modem is 192.168.1.1 and the ip address of the router is 192.168.1.1 as well, connect your computer directly to the router and change the 3rd octet of the ip address, ex-192.168.1.1 to 192.168.2.1 then your connecttion should be , the cable form the adsl model goes to the port 4 of the router and the router should be set on a dhcp settings..

I hope this solution will help you. good luck

if you have any querry pls feel free to get in touch.. good luck

SOURCE: My DSL Connection 1mb connection

you dont need to enter any ip adress just slect the auto detect ip.then conect you adsl modem with lan cable to wireless router.but it would be better if you use a switch between adsl modem and wireless router.

What the problem? i'm also using this router...
how you setting the router?using wifi or LAN?
BEFORE THAT,
DOWNLOAD HERE

RUN INSTALLER FIRST BEFORE CONNECT TO YOUR ROUTER.
connect line rj11 to link dsl,rj45 to your pc/laptop.(dont use wifi to setup the router)
then plug the power and ON the wifi router.
After that, check light for ADSL, WLAN INTERNET AND PORT(1 OR 2 OR 3 OR 4) IS BLINK

..IF light is okay and blink, then you can setup the utilities.
Is easy. TP-LINK get ready with software that you can setting the router as like professional with the secure encryption. For receiver I'm preferred you using tp-link also. Then you can use QSS function only just click button QSS..

I connect fine to it but cannot get to internet


This is not a trivial task but to start, I presume that your Wireless Router is connected to an ADSL or CABLE modem:
1) Make sure that you can connect to the Internet/Web directly from the ADSL/CABLE modem. 2) Once you have step 1 validated, connect your Wireless router to the ADSL/CABLE modem. 3) Ensure that you can communicate to the Wireless router and use Netgear supplied software - I suggest that you connect your PC/LAPTOP used for configuration directly via an ETHERNET cable attached to your router: 'NETGEAR's Smart Wizard™ makes the set-up of the RangeMax™ wireless router easy and hassle-free. Smart Wizard automatically detects your ISP's network settings, then walks you through each step of the installation proces' 4) When the installation is finish, try connecting to the internet via the ETHENET cable on your router. If it does not work, the FIREWALL on the ADSL/CABLE MODEM may be blocking the port and needs to be opened/disabled. 5) You can now concentrate in getting the WIFI working by first using an 'unsecured/no encrytion' connection by setting an appropriate SSID. 6) Once setp 5 is working, you SHOULD NOW SECURE your Wifi connection by using a selected encryption (such as WEP or better) and security key.
ps. you will get this 'limited access' message if anywhere in the device chains the IP addresses cannot be resolved.

It's always smart to set a restore point in case something goes wrong during installation of any program. For wireless connection from laptop or PC: install router software on computer. Reboot computer. In browser address bar enter 192.168.1.1. This brings up a window for user name and password. Enter "admin" for both. This allows you to change many settings including Changing SSID(Router Name), User name and password. Enabling WEP or WPA security. Hope this Helps, Good Luck..!!
