I'm trying to connect my 3com wireless router (model# 3CRWER200-75) and did the 3com Wizard through 192.168.1.1 website. But I can't get the Sympatico on the PC to start up thereby not able to open the Internet Explorer. What settings do I need to enter in the Wizard to have the router and the Sympatico modem (model Speedstream 4200) to mate up? Thanks in advance!!

1 Remove power from the Gateway.
2 Disconnect all your computers and the cable/DSL modem from the Gateway router.
3 Using a straight through Ethernet cable, connect the Ethernet Cable/DSL port on the rear of the Gateway to any one of the LAN ports.
4 Re-apply power to the Gateway. The Alert LED will flash as the Gateway starts up, and after approximately 30 seconds will start to flash more slowly (typically 2 seconds on, 2 seconds off). Once the Alert LED has started to flash slowly, remove power from the Gateway.
5 Remove the cable connecting the Cable/DSL port to the LAN port, and reconnect one of your computers to one of the Gateway LAN ports.
6 Re-apply power to the Gateway, and when the start-up sequence has completed, browse to:
and run the configuration wizard. You may need to restart your computer before you attempt this.
7 When the configuration wizard has completed, you may reconnect your network as it was before
For 3com type of routers, you must connect firstly to 3com setup, By:
First: open your browser and type 192.168.1.1
Second: you will find adapter setting and reset it, it all depends upon your router's software.
Third: the easiest way is to reset it from the small button in the back of your router.
Unless, you can try another computer to connect or there is a tiny (and I mean sometimes pinhole) reset button to push, it may have seen its last day. It has happenned to me and I picked up a little 35 dollar Belkin that worked great.
What model router is it? here are some general directions:
go to internet explorer, type in 192.168.1.1 and hit enter... this should bring up a login box...
generally the username = admin or administrator and the password = password... (if that doesnt work look on the bottom of the router or in the manual for info)
once your logged into the router proceed to the Wireless or security menu - you want to enter a WEP or WPA passcode of your choice (WRITE DOWN THIS PASSWORD) you will have to enter this password on any computer you want to connect via wifi
Make sure to save your settings
Whats the exact model # of the Speedtouch?
Well if your Modem doesn't have a WAN for a network cable (RJ-45) if all it has is a usb for connecting to a PC only I hope you have WindowsXP or Vista. Well what you can do is use your PC as a gateway like... What you would need to do is Plug the speedtouch into your PC with the usb... Plug the WAN from your router into your PC's network jack. Now you can go and do the Wireless/Network setup wizard and tell it your using a PC to connect other PC's to the net.
