Some routers have a kind of built in firewall. You need to let the router/modem that it is okay for it to let this information pass through it. Here are your instructions
Overview

Follow the steps in this chapter and use the Gateway’s web-based utility to configure the Gateway. This chapter
will describe each web page in the Utility and each page’s key functions. The utility can be accessed via your web
browser through use of a computer connected to the Gateway. For a basic network setup, most users only have to
use the following screens of the Utility:

• Setup. On the Setup screen, enter the settings provided by your ISP.

• Security. Click the Administration tab and then the Security tab. The Gateway’s default username and
password is admin. To secure the Gateway, change the Password from its default.

There are seven main tabs: Setup, Wireless, Security, Access Restrictions, Applications & Gaming, Administration,
and Status. Additional tabs will be available after you click one of the main tabs.
Setup

• Setup. Enter the Internet connection settings on this screen.
Wireless

• Basic Wireless Settings. You can choose your wireless network settings on this screen.

• Wireless Security. This screen allows you to choose your wireless security mode.

• Wireless Network Access. This screen displays your wireless network access list.

• Advanced Wireless Settings. On this screen you can access the advanced wireless features.

• WDS. The wireless distribution system feature is accessed on this screen.
Security

• Firewall. This screen contains filters and the Block WAN Requests feature. Filters block specific internal users
from accessing the Internet and block anonymous Internet requests.

• VPN Passthrough. To enable or disable IPSec and/or PPTP Passthrough, use this screen.

Please refer to the link

You cannot upgrade the firmware, instead you can download the vista drivers for your cable gateway modem.

My wireless hp says router cannot find host name


Double check your physical connection. It should be this way

Modem > connected to Internet Port of the router
PC > connected to port 1
Laptop > can be wireless

Now you must power cycle your router and modem. Turn off router first then modem. Wait for 30 seconds. Power on modem first, then the router. You must configure the wireless settings on your laptop it doesn't connect automatically.

I have a WCG200 linksys but can not go onto internet.


from what i have read, your router is broadcasting a signal, and your modem has an open and active internet gateway.

pls make sure that the connection from the modem to the router are correct. the modem should be connected in the port with the label internet. you may have to reset your modem AFTER you have connected the wireless router to allow the router to be assigned an ip. now with the wireless router and broadband modem connected, you can connect to the network and access the internet. pls repost if you hit any snags
GOOD LUCK and PLS rate this post.

Help me please


I think Not.
There are ADSL wireless routers however.
I guess your purpose is to make your ADSL modem available wirelessly, you can connect the
modem via lan line to the wireless and use that as a router.

Wireless internet connection


You haven't specified if the host computer is able to access the internet. Ip Address confict can be one of the reasons why the laptop isnt able to connect and we can have a series of reasons why we have this IP Address conflict - 1) There is no wireless encryption defined. So, we have neighbors connecting to the wireless network causing IP Address conflicts. 2) The laptop is not able to renew the IP Address after the lease expires. This can mostly be resolved by restarting the computer and in certain cases flusing the TCP/IP stack. 3) There is a static IP Address assigned to the laptop in the router's DHCP range which is conflicting with the host computer. I would suggest you may initiate a chat with me or anyone else who has expertise in routers to get this successfully resolved. That would definitely save your time. Good luck
