Some DSL Internet Service Providers (ISPs) use Point to Point Protocol over Ethernet (PPPoE) Authentication to establish Internet connection with their end-users. This article will guide you in setting up the router's PPPoE feature.
NOTE: This article assumes that you already have the username and the password for your DSL Internet connection.

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

NOTE: If you're using a Mac, click here for instructions.

Step 2:
On the Setup tab, click the drop-down arrow for Internet Connection Type then, select PPPoE.

Cable modem internet works when directly plugged into desktop, but when run through the router, no connectivity


Most cable Internet Service Providers (ISP) use a Media Access Control (MAC) Authentication to establish Internet connections for end-users. A MAC address is a unique 48-bit (6-byte) integer that is attached to an Ethernet NIC for each computer. To set-up your Linksys router to a Cable ISP, you have to do MAC Cloning. MAC Cloning is a procedure which enables a router to copy the MAC address of the PC that's registered with the ISP.
To setup a Linksys router with Cable connection you need to perform five steps:
  1. Verifying Internet Connection
  2. Connecting the Devices Together
  3. Checking the Router's LEDs
  4. Configuring a Linksys Router for a Cable Connection
  5. Power Cycling
NOTE: Before proceeding, use the computer that can go online when connected to the modem and follow the steps below.
Verifying Internet Connection
Connect the Broadband modem to the computer using an Ethernet cable without the router installed and make sure that the Internet connection is active. If it is not, contact your ISP. If it can go online, the PC connected to the modem is the one that's registered with the ISP.

kb4682-001_en.png NOTE: The image may vary depending on the computer and modem you're using.
Once an active Internet connection is established through the modem, connect the modem and the computer to the router by following the instructions below.
Connecting the Devices Together
After ensuring that you have an active Internet connection, connect the modem to the router's Internet port and the computer to any of the four Ethernet ports. For instructions, click here.
After connecting the devices, check the LEDs by following the instructions below.
Checking the Router's LEDs
The Linksys router's front panel will indicate the status of the connection. After connecting the broadband modem to the WAN or Internet port, the computer to an available numbered port and powering on the router check the lights on the front panel of the router. For instructions, click here.
After checking the router's LEDs, configure the router for cable Internet. For instructions, follow the steps below.
Configuring a Linksys Router for a Cable Connection
kb4682-002_en.png For Telstra Cable internet users, please contact Telstra to confirm if your internet connection is using DHCP or HB (Heart Beat) signal. There should be no other machine running HB client upon doing this procedure.
Step 1:
Access the router's web-based setup page. For instructions, click here.


NOTE
: If you are using Mac to access the router's web-based setup page, click here. If you forgot your IP address, click here. If you forgot your router's password, click here.


Step 2:

When the router's web-based setup page appears, click the drop-down arrow under the Internet Connection Type field and select Automatic Configuration - DHCP.
(a) If you are NOT using Telstra HB, proceed with DHCP setup.

kb4682-003_en.png
NOTE: If you are a Telstra Cable internet user and you're using WRT120N, WRT160N v1, WRT320N or WRT610N, please select Telstra Cable.
(b) If you are using Telstra Cable, proceed with the following setup. Obtain your user name and password from Telstra. Please disable any HB client that might have been previously running on the PC after the router is configured.

kb4682-004_en.png

Step 3:
Click kb4682-005_en.png.

Step 4:
Click MAC Address Clone.



kb4682-006_en.png

Step 5:
Select Enabled and click Clone My PC's MAC.



kb4682-007_en.png




Step 6:

Click kb4682-012_en.png.


Step 7:
Click Status. Check the value of 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 not online, perform a power cycle to synchronize the router with the modem. For instructions, click here.




kb3687-005_en.png

kb3687-006_en.png



NOTE:
If the Internet IP Address is all zeroes (0.0.0.0) click kb4682-008_en.png first then click kb4682-009_en.png. If the Internet IP Address is still all zeroes (0.0.0.0) perform a power cycle. For instructions, click here.
If the IP Address starts with 192.168.1.xxx or if it has the same first three numbers (octets) as the router's IP address, change the router's LAN IP address to a different LAN segment. For instructions, click here.
Once the router is configured, perform a power cycle. For instructions, follow the steps below.
Power Cycling

Step 1:
Shutdown the computer.

Step 2:

Unplug the router's power cable.


Step 3:

Unplug the Broadband modem's power cable and wait for 30 seconds.


Step 4:

Plug in the Broadband modem's power cable and wait for its lights to appear stable.


Step 5:

Plug in the router's power cable once the modem's lights appear stable.


Step 6:

Power on the computer on and test the Internet connection.
NOTE: If you're not online after performing this procedure, you may need to upgrade the firmware of the router.
