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.

Won't connect to internest.

first there should be 2 cables connected the device.
1) power adapter
2) ethernet cable from either a dsl modem or a cable modem connected to the wan connector
with most cable modem service its usually dhcp meaning you are always connected to the internet
with some there is ppoe connection where a user name and password is used to make a connection to be on the internet with the dsl modem
there are some dsl companies that are dhcp just like the cable modem companies.
with the ethernet cable connected the wan port on your router there should be some kind of activity light on the router but check with the type connection from your dsl or cable internet provider. also you will need a second ethernet cable to connect your computer to setup and configure the wireless settings and wep protection.
need more info?

How to connect inenter by using lan and ftp

To connect to the Internet you need a few extra things aswell as a network card and install the LAN card driver.

2. Connect a LAN cable from your computer to the DSL or cable modem
3. You need a DSL or cable modem and connect and configure the modem to inaccordance with your Internet service provider's instructions.
4. Install Internet Explorer if it has not been done.
5. If everything has been done correctly, when you open Internet Explorer youcan access the Internet. If you have a wireless router and it is connected to the DSLor cable modem then -
To connect to yourwireless router, the router needs its wireless settings to be configuredwith the SSID, encryption key etc., also the wireless cards in all thelaptops/computers needs to be configured with these router's wireless settings.Then the laptops/desktop computers can communicate with your wireless router.

How do i hook up my router?

There are several ways to do this, depending on how your network is configured.

Generally, if you have only one router - you connect the network jack of your cable modem or DSL modem to the WAN ("wide area network" or "internet") jack of the router with a CAT 5 network cable or jumper. Each computer's network jack would be connected to one of the router's (4) LAN ("local area network" or "home network") jacks labeled 1, 2, 3, & 4.

In the picture above, the left most jack (WAN) of the router connects to the cable or DSL modem. The "LAN" jacks labeled "1, 2, 3 & 4" connect to each computer's network jack in your home.

The above would change if you are simply adding this router to extend an existing network. You'd likely be using this router as a switch, and leaving the routing duties to the main router. Over simplified, all the CAT 5 network cables would be connected to the 4 LAN jacks. There would be no connection to the router's WAN jack because the output of the first router provides only private IP addresses used in YOUR location. The internet IP address from your ISP is used only at the first router so that your entire home has the single IP address. The WAN jack is for internet addresses only - and the LAN jacks are for local / private addresses in your home only.

Have a look at the LinkSys web site for help configuring your particular model router, or reply with the model and version here.

I hope this helps & good luck. Please rate my reply - thanks!

How do you connect 2 routers into one network? I have a Linksys E3000 and a WRT110...I've had the wrt110 for over a year but I found I needed a second router to cover my entire house so I purchased a...

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.

Cant get into to fix problem

Do you have cable or DSL internet service? On a DSL setup the router is at . At the run command, ipconfig/all will give all the current settings of your network connection. The line with default gateway is your router address.

Check the status lights on your router and modem as well as the network connection on your computer. You may want to try connecting to the modem itself with a wired connection and then reconnect the router and see if you can connect with a wired connection from the computer to the router.

If your network works normally with a wired connection, use the device manager to check your wireless connection. Also go through the router setup to check that no settings have been changed.

If you have missing lights on either the modem or the router, check the cables (replace them if you can) and transformers. A call for service from your ISP may be needed if the modem isn't connecting. (At least once, my DSL network went down after a lightning strike damaged the signal filter where the DSL split from the phone line.)

I hope this helps.

My DIR-655 won't work!

It would be helpful if you could be a bit more specific regarding the way you hooked up the dir 655 to your network and your specifc DSL modem. If the modem you are using is the Actiontec M1000 DSL modem you will not be able to obtain internet access because the DIR 655 is trying to route an already routed IP, the M1000 has a built in router / DHCP that by default is enabled. You can use option 1, access the configuration settings of your M1000 and change the WAN configuration to act as a transparent bridge. After doing so and rebooting the modem you will have to enter your DSL login information like a PPPoE username and password for example into your DIR 655 network settings. With this configuration the modem simply acts as a bridge to relay data directly to the DIR 655 and the 655 itself provides login credentials to obtain internet from your DSL provider as well as hand out IP addresses to the local network. Option 2 is to continue to use the M1000 as a router by default and disable DHCP on your DIR 655 so that it essentially acts as nothing more than a switch or wireless access point while the M1000 hands out local IP addresses. I personally would recommend using the DIR 655 to route IP's as it's got far more configuration utilities than the M1000 does as a router, and really what's the point of getting the 655 if you're only going to use it as a switch or access point when there are other simpler and cheaper devices that could do that for you.
