Here are some troubleshooting steps that I suggest you try: 1. Check physical connections. a. Connect the modem to the Internet port of the router. The Internet ?i? LED on the front of the router should light up. b. Connect the computer to one of the four LAN ports (i.e port 1, 2, 3 or 4) on the back of the router. The corresponding port light where you connected the computer should be lit up. 2. Access the router's web-based utility. a. Please open any web browser like Internet Explorer or Netscape Navigator. b. Connect to the router by typing http://routerlogin.com/basicsetting.htm or http://192.168.1.1 in the address field and click Enter or Return key. c. A window will prompt for a user name and password. By default, the user name is "admin" and the password is "password". Note: If you were unable to access the router's web-based utility, you may reset the router to restore the settings to factory default. To reset the router: a. Please push the reset button at the back of the router and release after 30 seconds. b. Unplug the power adapter for 10 seconds and then plug it back in. 3. Configure the router. If your Internet Service Provider is using a cable connection, please follow the steps below: a. Click on Basic Settings under Setup tab. b. Select No for Does Your Internet Connection Require A Login?. c. Scroll down on the center page and look for the Router MAC Address section. Set it to Use computer MAC address and click on the Apply button. If your Internet Service Provider is using a DSL connection, please follow the steps below: a. Click on Basic Settings. b. Select Yes for Does Your Internet Connection Require A Login?. c. Select Other on the Internet Service Provider drop down box. d. Enter your ISP's username (username@ISPdomain) and password. Then, click on Apply. 4. Configure the wireless settings. a. Click on the Wireless Settings under Setup. b. Change the SSID to any unique name. c. Scroll down, look for the Security Options settings and select WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy). d. Set the Authentication type to "Automatic" and the Encryption Strength to "64bit". e. Leave the Passphrase field blank, select Key 1 and enter a 10-digit number. Note: The 10-digit number you typed in the key 1 will be the password or network key for the wireless connection. f. Click Apply button to save the changes. g. Go to Router Status under Maintenance tab and check if there is an IP address under Internet port. If it's 0.0.0.0, do a power cycle. 5. Power cycle. a. Power off the modem, router and computers. b. Turn on the power of the modem first and wait for it to initialize, the lights to stop blinking. c. Power back the router and the computers. Check if it will be able to get online. If you have wireless computers, you can connect them wireless to the router. Kindly follow the instructions below: 6. Connect wireless computer to the router. If you are using Windows XP with Service Pack 1, please follow the steps below: a. Please right click on the Wireless icon on the right lower end portion of your computer. b. Then click on View Available Wireless Networks. c. Click on the Advanced tab. d. Please delete all the preferred networks then click on OK. e. Right click on the Wireless icon again and click on View Available Wireless Network. Please select your network and click on Connect. It will ask you for the network key. f. Please type in the network key and then confirm it. Network key is the password you type on the key 1 of the wireless settings of the router. g. Make sure not to enable IEEE and then click on Connect. If you are using Windows XP with Service Pack 2, please follow the steps below: a. Please right click on the Wireless icon on the right lower end portion of your computer. b. Then click on View Available Wireless Networks. c. Click on the Change Advanced Settings. d. Click on the Wireless Networks tab remove all the preferred networks then click on OK. e. Right click on the Wireless icon then click on View Available Wireless Networks. f. Select your network and click on Connect. g. It will ask you for the network key. Type in the network key and confirm it. Then click on Connect.

Hello, Unfortunately, ISP techs often try to put blame on their clients equipment as much as possible. If your computer is showing limited connectivity, then this means that it is able to successfully connect to your wireless router, meaning that its probably not your adapter. Limited connectivity usually is a sign that you cannot reach the internet. This could be caused by multiple issues. In order to isolate the problem, try connecting your computer directly into your modem using the cable from the wireless router. If you can connect to the internet, then it is a configuration problem with your router. If not, then it is something with your connection to your ISP, in which case you need to call your ISP back and explain that situation. If you do happen to connect to the internet, then please reply, and we can go from there.
