    I unplugged the router and plugged the modem into back into the harddrive to contact you..

    My internet works fine if not going thru the router. That is why I think I may be doing something wrong.. that is what I get for not buying a new router..I got it from where I work from the IT person

    Bad idea maybe??

Hey there, Now if all lights are flashing, and TRUST ME...I HAVE HAD SOME FUN WITH MINE AS OF LATE ( lol ).
Do a hard reset, which means, leave it plugged into the wall, and while its having its fun flashing away, turn it DOWN, you may also do the same to your Modem, wait about 30 seconds .......*waiting*........after all of this FUN waiting process. * I recommend turning down the PC...But you don't need to * power on first the modem, once turned on, you might need to manually power it off, basically make sure that all the lights get lite. Then once that has been done, replug the router, give sometime * and if you turned off your PC, while awaiting for your router to full light up, this would be a perfect time to start turning on you PC *
Once this has all been done, * please make sure that everything is plugged in properly ** that means Ethernet to the PC's Ethernet jack ** * Go to your wireless connections, make sure that everything shows some movement, FYI you might require to decrease your firewall * if using Windows OS * Everything should run smoothly, Let me know how it goes,
Thanks
Justin
Please Rate Me :)
P.S. How did you send this if you PC internet is down (-_-)
joking.

    That is highly viewed, Maybe the reason he sold it to you, is because the Ports are having issues, I normally don't see IT giving away parts....unless there is SOMETHING wrong with it, or unless they are going out with the old, in with the new, I would recommend you speak with the person that has sold you it, and inquire more about with the, because if (s)he sold you a "lemon" get your money back, and just go to Wal-Mart or any cheap store, and they normally run between $40-69.99
    Thanks, Justin

    P.S. I figured so, 'sides, it was a joke :P

How do you set the router up!!! no diagram to hook up to desktop


How you connect it depends on how you plan to use it. Let me explain:

Some people have a dsl line (high speed internet connection) and their modem from their internet provider only has room for one computer cable to connect and use the internet. If the customer has more then one desktop computer they want to connect to the internet, they will need to buy a router. A router provides multiple ports for several computers to connect to the internet at the same time.

If you have a dsl modem already and bought a router to add additional computers to your network - then follow the instructions below to set it up:

Connect your phone cord from the wall into the dsl modem. Plug in the power cable from the dsl modem to the wall and turn it on. Connect an ethernet cable to the dsl modem (ethernet cables are the ones that look like a regular telephone cord but the ends are a little larger) and connect the other end to your router. Make sure you plug this cable into the port marked "ethernet" on your router. There is only one port for your internet connection line coming into the router, the rest of the ports are for adding computers only. Some routers say the word "ethernet" near the port for the internet connection. Others have a picture near or or brackets around it to show that it is different then the others. Plug in the power cord to your router and turn it on. Make sure you turn on your modem first and let it warm up before connecting your router. Modem power on first, then router power on - always.

Now connect an ethernet cable to your router and connect the other end to the pc you wish to use on the internet. Do not turn on your pc until the ethernet cord is attached. Your dsl modem has to be powered up first, followed by your router and then your pc. All in that order.

Your computer should automatically sense the internet connection upon start up. You can verify that your connection is installed correctly and that your pc is sensing it by looking at the bottom right side of your screen near the clock area. You should see a picture of a computer monitor that represents your internet connection status. Sometimes they glow green when they are healthy. Sometimes they show a red X on top of them if they are disconnected from the internet. If you can't find the Icon for your internet connection on the bottom right side of your screen, unplug the ethernet cable from the back of your pc - while watching the bottom right side area and plug it back in again. Watch for a change to locate the icon. Sometimes there is a downward pointing arrow near the clock which needs to be clicked on to open up the area and view the icons.

Thats all! One line from the modem to the router - another line from the router to the pc - and the internet should be up and running fine.

If you bought a router combination modem - then its the same as above - just without a separate dsl modem. (i.e. Connect the power cable from the router/modem to the wall. Connect the ethernet cable to the port marked "ethernet" for your internet connecton and connect the other end of the cord to your pc. Then turn your pc on. Router/modem power on first and pc power on second in that order)

All the lights on your modem should be green and steady - except for the one marked internet or connection which is usually flashing and moving. If you have any red or yellow lights then you need to troubleshoot and correct the problem before your internet connection will work.

The Cable modem must be disconnected from the computer. You cannot use USB and Ethernet at the same time.

1. Turn off power to the Cable Modem and the Netgear Router. Do the same with the computer.
2. Connect an ethernet cable from the modem to the router's WAN (Internet) port.
3. Connect another ethernet cable from one of the remaining 4 LAN ports on the router to the computer's ethernet port.

4. Now power on the Cable Modem ONLY. Wait for the modem to sync up with your service provider
5. After about 2-5 minutes power up the router and wait about 1-2 minutes.
6. Now power on your PC.

Check and see if you have internet access. If not you may have to uninstall any cable modem software related to USB connection. if this is the case, then you may have to repeat steps 4-6.

Since most cable internet providers do not use proprietary connection settings, your internet connection should be up and running without changing any settings in the router or modem.

If this does not resolve your issues, we can continue to work with you.

How to connect a router


It depends on the router but how I did it is
1. Connect the ethernet cable to the router, then the cable that came with the router to the router with one end, then plug the other end into the computer.
2. There should be a disk that you have to install which is the firmware for the router. Once this is done, it will automatically update from now on.
3. It should set up itself!

How to connect to the internet


You should have a home modem from and ISP (Internet Service Provider) Also If you have a router you need to plug the Ethernet Cord (the cord that looks like a Giant phone line) into the internet port of the router, Now if the router is a wireless router and you want to use the internet wirelessly you need to open your wireless connections and you will see your router in the list. Simply double click the connection and it will automatically connect for you. If you do not have a wireless router and you want to connect more than one computer to the internet,Simply keep the ethernet cord plugged into the internet port on the router and you should have 4 other ports next to each other. Plug another ethernet cord into port 1 and plug into the back or side of computer. That's it. I hope this helped have a good day

Belkin router can't connect to internet


This is part solution, part clarification request: When you say that you installed the setup software on your laptop, setup software for which: the modem, or the belkin router? Also what type of internet service do you have - Cable? DSL? If you are not sure, list your ISP. What operating systems do you have on your laptop and your main computer?

You say that you connected the modem to your main computer - I am assuming that you mean that you connected your modem with a network or ethernet cable (the one with a connector that looks similar to but larger than a telephone's connector) to your computer's ethernet card, or NIC, port. Is anything connected by ethernet cable to the Belkin router? If you have not connected the modem directly to the router, it will not connect to the internet, and anything connecting to the Belkin router will not be able to access the internet as well.

Try this: disconnected the power from your modem, then disconnect power from your router, and disconnect any ethernet cables from computer & modem, or computer and router. Connect an ethernet cable from the modem to the Belkin Router. (Ensure that you have plugged in the ethernet cable on the router into a port that is either set aside from others, or indicates "Internet", WAN, or something similar - it should be marked either with a different color, labled, or both). Now power on your modem. Wait until you see a steady "ready" light, green ethernet light, or the light usually lit for that model indicating it has completed its bootup tests and the internet connection is ready.
Next, ensure the ethernet cable is connected from the modem to correct WAN or "internet" port on the Belkin Router, then power up the router. Once the router boots up completely, plug in a cable from your computer's (main computer) NIC or ethernet card or port, to a port on the Belkin Router (there should be more than one port available, generally numbered "1, 2, 3" and so on - in a group, seperate from the WAN or internet port). Once you are sure you have the cable plugged into one of the correct ports, and if you have windows, restart your main computer.

Now on your main computer, check to see if you have an internet connection. If you do, you can now resume running the router's software setup on your laptop, which sounds as though it was walking you thru the setup process to connect you via wireless connection to the internet. Report back if you have any success, or if you have any further problems, and best of luck! Hope that info helps

When i try and set up my wireless router it tells me the router is not detected


Please ensure that you have the router connected via the blue cable directly to your computer's ethernet port. You should be able to interface into your router's config page by typing in 192.168.1.1 in the web browser expolorer bar. Hope this helps, however, please do get back to me should there be anything else. Thanks.
