SOURCE: Internet connection provided by AOL DSL Plus

AOL DSL+ now uses PPPoE for authentication bypassing the client software. To set up your router: Step 1 Log into the web-based configuration of your router by opening a web browser such as Internet Explorer or Netscape and enter the IP address of the router ( Enter admin for username and then your password (blank by default). Configure the WAN side to use PPPoE. Please consult your manual for login instructions since all routers are not the same. Step 2 Enter your screen name followed by for the user name. Enter your AOL password in the password box. Step 3 You will have to set the MTU to 1400. AOL DSL does not allow for anything higher than 1400. Step 4 Apply settings. Step 5 Unplug (turn off) the power to the modem and router. Wait 1 minute and then power on only the modem. Wait about 1 minute and then power on the router. NOTE: If you connect to the Internet with a different Internet service provider and want to use the AOL software, you can do that without configuring the router?s firewall settings. You need to configure the AOL software to connect using TCP/IP (LAN). Contact AOL for more specific configuration information of their software.

SOURCE: 2wire not finding broadband connection

I have tried also in the past, to set up a connection with this make of router with an ISP other than the ISP that supplied it and i was not able to get it to connect as i think the firmware is set to only recognise certain ISP IP addresses or MAC settings.

SOURCE: No Line on US Robotics ADSL Wireless Gateway


Initially what I suspect is that your USR's connection to your ISP is intermittent but with that of the USB modem is consistent. This is clearly an ISP issue and should be resolved by them.

One thing you can try is to verify the integrity of the line splitter that is commonly used to split the 2-wire signal to the telephone and to the modem/router. You can actually remove the splitter and connect the telephone line straight to the WAN/ADSL input of the USR 9106 Wireless Gateway and check if their is an improvement or if your ADSL and WAN IP will light up consistently.

Alternately, if your ISP is too busy to attend to your concern, you can try mimicking the USR's WAN settings to that of the USB modem's. While still using the USB (provided by your ISP) determine its WAN IP settings. This would be IP address, Subnet Mask, Default Gateway and DNS. You need to access the USB modem to get this data. Should you need detailed instructions, pls post back the make/model of the ISP provided USB modem. If you were able to gather the information. Connect your USR 9106 Wireless Gateway (Ethernet 1~4) to your PC using a LAN cable and enter its configuration page. In its WAN/ADSL settings, use the numbers gathered from the USB modem. You may need to do a full hard reset on the router (rear panel) prior to putting in the numbers.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. If problem persists, pls post back as requested, how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

SOURCE: need to connect another tower to the 2 wire modem to work fr home

To connect more than one computer to this 2wire you will need to buy an access point (or a router, either one will do). Since the 2-wire is a modem and a router, it can support more than one computer. However, the 2-wire only has one Ethernet slot to support one computer. This is why we need an access point or a router as this will give you more Ethernet slots allowing you to connect more computers to the same Internet connection.

SOURCE: belkin wireless G+ MIMO ADSL2 + modem routerF5D9630

You need to find out what settings need to be changed in the router to communicate to the new modem. Etisalat should have some type of instructions on how to configure it...Does the IP address get obtained automatically or is it manually configured. Does the modem require a password. Did they replace the modem or just upgrade the system? You may just ahve to reset the modem and router to get reconnection. Most routers use the IP address of or to get to the router settings control panel. Just enter one of these addresses on internet explorer and a screen should ask for a password. The default password is usually ADMIN but consult the routers manual for instructions. Once you are in the router control manual you can configure the router to work with the new system.

Eaton Home Heartbeat Starter Pack Description

This is all you need (plus any additional sensors) to know the last status of your sensors when you are home or away from home. The HomeKey takes a "snapshot" of the last sensor status as you leave your house. This gives you the peace of mind knowing that you really did unplug the curling iron or shut the garage door.

The HOMEheartbeat Starter Pack contains the Base Station, a HomeKey, and an Open/Closed Sensor. Everything you need to get started. You simply plugin the Base Station and program your sensor(s) with your HomeKey.

Note: Full use of this product to view your sensors status live requires the Broadband Gateway Extender with a high-speed internet connection and monthly Service Plan. A home telephone line (not a cellular phone) can be used if you purchase Remote Alert packages through Eaton's HOMEheartbeat web site.

I have one netgear wifi WN3000NP extender installed, works great, I am trying to hook up another one in my garage upstairs floor, can't seem to connect it? Can I have more than one?

I'm not an expert on these but from what I read I think it very unlikely that you will get 2 working successfully at the same time. I would be more inclined to use a home plug network extender (500mbs standard) there are many makes. These carry the network over your mains wiring.
for example (but there are many others) NETGEAR Powerline 500Mbps Adapter Starter Kit XAVB5201

Eaton Home Heartbeat HOMEkey Description

The HomeKey (included in all HOMEheartbeat Starter Packs) is used to program your sensors and change your system's setttings. Attach it to your keychain or place it in your purse and take it with you. Then, when you (and your HomeKey) leave the range of your Base Station (range of approx. 150 feet in open air), your Home Heartbeat system knows you're away from home and that it will "alert" you with text messages and emails about changes in the status of your home!*

Important Note: *When setting up your system and sensors be sure to take time to setup whether you want to be alerted 1) only on your HomeKey (at home), 2) to email/cell phone when you're away, 3) to your email/cell phone always.

Trying to hook verizon UM150 card to verizon wireless DSL Gateway

the UM150 wireless card goes into the computer.
however, the DSL need to be wired to your computer for initial configuration.
