Most DSL modems have their internal network set at 192.168.1.0/255.255.255.0 which is the same address space by default in your Linksys Router... more or less the routers IP is 192.168.1.1 and the default IP of the DSL gateway is 192.168.1.1 ... following steps to fix...
hardwire a PC to the Linksys router navagate to the webpage at http://192.168.1.1 (default username *BLANK* password: admin)
first setup all wireless options SSID: (choose something other than the default "linksys" so you can tell it from all the other linksys default systems in the world), WPA/WPA2 Encryption (so only people you know can get on)
after you set all that up then go back to the basic lan setup and change the address space from 192.168.1.1 to something else (e.g. 192.168.10.1, 192.168.21.1, or so fore)
1. There may be 3 issues here to consider 1st : a. the network card \ b. the Ethernet cable c. the Ethernet port on the router defective.
2.Here is a instruction set to follow to see if your router is connected properly with the said pc : 1.Log into router. Using either 192.168.0.1 to 192.168.1.1 in a browser window that is ( internet Explorer or firefox) on the computer that doesn't connect. 2. Verify wireless router name( on the computer) >>> ( on/off) ( router status window) 3.Note router name you are connecting to. 4.. Check the laptop do ipconfig /all to see current IP addresses. 5. Set the laptop/desktop up in the router by WEP KEY or MAC address. This set up in the "security tab" in the router. using 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1 to access through a browser. 6.Note router name you are connecting to. 7. use a straight through Ethernet cord ( a know good one )\ 8. verify that the network card is working by using a loop back ( that is ping the NIC card ( done by using dos command prompt>> loopback address is 127.0.0.1 this should yield 4 hops complete if the NIC card is working ( NIC = Network Interface Card) I hope this helps. Have a great day! This is for all routers to set up wirelessly.
Make sure comp lan and wan are both activated, Make sure the ethernet cable from modem is plugged into the input slot and NOT 1,2,3,or 4
Then after all is connected, unplug main modem for 10 seconds, plug back in, then do the same with wireless router. 5 minutes later, you should be good to go.
You can access the software of you router by opening up an internet page, and type 192.168.1.1 and hit enter. It should bring you right straight to the router's firmware/software where you can change any settings if desired.
If it asks for username and password, the default is usually admin for both. (see owners manual to be exact)
Please check you LAN settings on your router (DNS) - usually it is 0.0.0.0 (assigned by provider)
Make sure your PC is using DHCP (TCP/IP properties -> Obtain IP Address Automatically & Obtain DNS server address automatically). Try "ipconfig /all" at others computers and compare with your PC (look at gateway & DNS). See if you can ping gateway and then outside address.
p.s. To access your router open Internet Explorer and enter http://192.168.0.1/
If it is not working, check the default gateway address on working computer and use it instead.
You might need to check if your laptop is able to get a valid IP address when connected wirelessly to the router. You can go to the Control Panel then click on network connections and look for wireless network connection. Right click the wireless network connection then click properties. Click the support tab and there you will see the IP address. You should not be getting 169.254.x.x. Where X represents numbers.
An IP address is very important. Make sure you're getting a correct IP address and it should be the IP address provided by your router. Without a valid IP address, you won't be able to get onlinwe. Your wireless connection can tell you that its connected eventhough its not getting a valid IP address.
If you are connected straight from the modem, your router will not have internet access, only if your modem is connected to the router you will be able to go online wireless. connect your modem to the router nad router to the desktop, so that you can access both wired and wireless connection
from what you say, it sounds as if you have your wired and wireless card connected at the same time.
This will confuse the router as it is trying to give two different ip addresses to the one pc, which it cannot do.
If you are using the wireless adapter, make sure you dissable the wired adapter as the router will continually look for the wired ip address while allocating your wireless adapter causing instability.
Next ensure you have a good clear signal from router to notebook as this can obviously cause problems.
Lastly ensure that the wireless cards TCP/IP properties are set to obtain ip address automatically, especially if your router is DHCP enabled to allocate ip addresses automatically.
You router may be set to be DHCP enabled so that it allocates the ip addresses automatically to each pc, so check that the pc's network card with connection problems is set in the properties on the TCP/IP line is set to obtain an ip address automatically.
You can also try, Start>run then type ipconfig /flushdns to clear the pc ip address and dns. and restart pc.
Lastly if you pc is both network cabled and wireless, ensure one or the other is dissabled as this can confuse the ip adress alocation.
