Turn off the modem (i am assuming you are using a cable modem. if it is a DSL modem, this will not work) and the router. Turn the modem back on and wait until all the LED's on the front of the modem come on and blink or stay solid, then turn the router on. If it is DSL, you will have to refer to this page:

You need to do a reset on the modem and router by pressing the reset button with a ball point pen and if you don't see a reset button unplug both for 20seconds. Don't hold the reset button in for longer than 5seconds or you will have to reconfigure your modem and router VIA your PC.

If I understand your problem correctly, you are able to connect to the Internet when you hook the computer directly to the modem, but not when the router is connected to the modem.
If this is the case, then you need to do a power drain on the modem. Power cycling the modem is not enough to clear the NVRAM of the MAC address of your computer. You have to unplug the power cord of the modem for 15 to 20 minutes in order for the NVRAM to reset and allow the modem to recognize the MAC address of the router.
After the modem has been unplugged for 15 to 20 minutes, disconnect the power cable from the router and then connect router to the modem using the Ethernet cable.
Next with the router power cord still disconnected, plug in the power cord of the modem and allow the modem to sync to the network.
Once the modem is finished with its start-up, plug-in the power cord of the router and let it sync to the network.
After the modem has completed its start-up, it should now be connected to the internet.
Good Luck

I have linkys wireless router model wrt54g2v1.after i back up my computer i lost the linkys file. i cannot find cd for installation. now i am unable to open internet.


mpshyla

The reason for the CD is to configure the router to your cable modem. So if you reinstalled your computer you do not need the CD again. All you need to do is set the computer's Gateway back to your router. The links below will help you do this.

Di-524 router problem


You do not need a password for cable. You need to make sure that your router is using DHCP. Whenever you connect something to your cable modem, you MUST turn off everything. Then turn on in this order:

1 Turn on cable modem and wait until the modem syncs with your ISP.
2. Turn on your modem and wait until the router and the modem sync up.
3. Turn on your PC

Your cable modem will remember the MAC address of the last device that was plugged into it, which is why you must turn off your modem to clear out the modems memory.

Not recognized by cable modem


Turn everything off for 2 minutes, cable modem, router and pc.

Turn on modem and wait 2 minutes for the modem to sync to TW.
Turn on router after 2 mins and wait until the router syncs with the modem.
Turn on PC
It sounds like your router lost its connection to the cable modem, which happens from time to time. TW will not help with your router. I worked for a cable co and the router and modem losing sync was the at least 70% of the calls. FYI cable doesn't use DSL,just the phone co.

I dont know what the telephone light means


Are you trying to set up router ?
You can set up your router manually, without the CD.
Make sure that your computer is able to go online directly through the modem.
If your computer is able to go online through the modem, that means the modem is working fine.
You will need to connect the computer to the router and the modem to the router.
open the set up page of the router and change the settings of the router according to the ISP.

I have an issue with my Dlink DIR-625 wireless and cable modem


it isn't syncing up with your modem, try a hard reboot, disconect everything, even the cable, after 5 minutes , first screw the coax cable back to the modem, that will re establish the cable connection, plug everything back in, and if that pc light still is still doesn't work, the router may be bad, look on the Dlink site and download the latest firmware, as a last resort, but also reset the router first before trying anything, there is a reset button on the router. Sometimes certain routers don't work with certain modems, if you try the reset, then the hard reboot, and the firmware, you have covered all the bases

How do i sync windows vista with my router?


hello!

-- who is your internet service provider
-- what is the operating system of your computer?
-- is this working fine before or is this a brand new router

you may try this and see if this help solve your problem. make sure your computer is directly connected to the router

Step 1: Shutdown the computer.
Step 2: reset the router while power on then Unplug the router’s power cable.
Step 3: Unplug the Broadband modem’s power cable and wait for 30 seconds.
Step 4: Plug in the Broadband modem’s power cable and wait for its lights to appear stable.
Step 5: Plug in the router's power cable once the modem’s lights appear stable.
Step 6: Power on the computer on and configure the router settings
Step 7: test the Internet connection.

if this still didnot work, upgrade the firmware of your router

note:

configuring the router settings will depends who is your provider. if your isp is dsl you need to configure your ISP username and password on the router. if your router is a cable no need to change any settings on the router. it should automatically work

if you are still having trouble configuring your device, try to call supportrix and use supportcall as your promo code for 1 free technical support.

Netopia 2241 Modem losing sync?


If your modem is losing sync with ADSL 2 that means that your line has a problem. Try having your DSL provider move you to a new Cable and pair.
