Question about Linksys Wireless-G Broadband Router
I have a TP-Link Wireless Router model number TL-WR641G set up connected to my DSL. It's the old router from my office and worked fine there. When I initially set it up last week, it was working fine. I went away for a few days and when I came back today and it won't connect to the internet anymore.
The internet is working fine if I disconnect the router and connect directly to DSL. When I use the router I have no trouble connecting to my wireless network, but something is keeping me from accessing the internet. Any help fixing this problem would be greatly appreciated!
It looks like all your devices by themselves are working fine.
If you took the router out of your office I assume that the settings from the office and your home are different, which causes the setup not to work properly.
First of all you should find out which hardware version of the router you have and download the manual from here, so you have the information at hand when you're not online.
Then you want to rest the router to factory settings, so you start clean. In order to do so, use the Factory Default Reset button: First, turn off the router's power. Second, press and hold the default reset button then turn on the router's power, until the SYS LED lights up (about 3 seconds). Last, release the reset button and wait for the router to reboot.
Follow the instructions in the manual form page 8 on onwards with a special view on setting up PPPoE. Have your information form your DSL provider handy (Account name and password).
The default webpage for the router interface is http://192.168.1.1
Username and password are both "admin".
Do not enable any wireless security until everything is working fine.
Make sure later to change the password to something else, so no one can "take over" your router.
If this solution did not help, please don't rate it as "Thanks for trying" or so, but leave a comment instead and I will check back and we can work form there.
