When connecting a switch/router to another switch a specially-wired crossover ethernet cable is necessary, unless both units are designed to automatically determine whether they need to operate in crossover or "uplink" mode. This is more than likely the problem you are encountering.

For beginners-how do i connect the linksys e1000 to my hughes net modem? or do I hook the cable directly to my tower so i can use my laptop in another room


The modem will plug into the router, it should come with a cable for this, there will be 5 ports on the router, one will be labeled as internet most likely , this is the one you use, the other 4 will be numbered and you can use any of these to connect your tower. the wireless should work automaticly for your laptop, but if you want to make it a secure network, please contact me directly and ill walk you through it.
hope this was helpful

I think you need an extra cat-5 wire.

1.
Plug one CAT-5 LAN cable into the port labeled WAN on Linksys then the other end into the cable Modem where your PC is normally

2.
now take a separate Cat-5 LAN cable adn plug it into port 1 on the linksys - the other end into your PC NIC

3.
Power cycle Cable Modem (remove battery), linksys, PC this will clear the MAC addresses

4.
turn on modem, linksys then pc

5.
loging to windows - open IE on address bar type 192.168.1.1 - this should be the default address of your router (unless you've changed your subnet) in which case I recommend you factory default the route and use default settings. after typing teh 192.1386.1.1 you should see the linksys login

6.
Now try yahoo.com in IE, the routers factory setting for DHCP should work fine without any end user programming from you.

please rate me, good luck

If you purchased a Linksys wireless roter then you shoul not need the switch anymore-
Try going directly from your time warner modem into the Interner/WAN port on the router and then plug your desktop computer and the vontage phone system into 2 of the ports on the router. After everything is hooked up you will probably need to power cycle for it all to work correctly.
Please power cycle in this order:

Reboot modem - then Router- then Vontage phone system.

Hope this helps

Absolutely. The router will have an uplink port. It will indicate on the back. Hook the modem from sat to the uplink and the other 2 computers to the other ports. make sure the computers are on DHCP (they should be defaulted to it) and they should auto connect

Linksys Cable/DSL Router model BEFSR4141


Since you did not include the type of internet provider I cannot give you more specific instructions. Although you can refer to the links below on how to set it up. If you require further assistance just reply to this and give me the model number of your ISP and the model of your router. Also answer this question " When you plug your computer to your modem do you get online automatically or do you need a username and password"

On the left front of the WRT54G wireless router, which is what I assume you have there is a light that says Cisco. It is actually a Universal Plug and Play button. Plug in the router to the DSL, the DSL will go in the port that is by itself, the others are numbered. The diagram that came with your router shows you where to put the DSL interface.

Now plug your PC into one of the other ports, and turn the laptop on with the wireless turned on too. Then press this button. It will turn from steady yellow to flashing white for a bit. It will use universal plug and play to set itself up.

Hope this helps. Also, if you want to reset the router to the factory state, press the button on the back of the router for 5 seconds and unplug it. Then keep holding it and plug it back in.

Linksys WRT54GS


Have you tried different ports. If the firmware is not eliminating th e problem, then I suspect its the router itself. Try firmware one more time as per linksys suggested, if that does not solve then I suspect you need to buy a new router.
Hope that helped!
