Replace your cat 5 cable please. I believe you have a bad cable end. DO NOT DISCARD THE CABLE UNTIL PROVEN FAULTY.

It is also possible you have a faulty port on the router. Though rare, it does happen. Drove me nuts one evening. It was a short trip.

I have lots of experience with cables having 25 computers on 5 networks in my home. Why? Darn good question my friend. I have made 99% of my cables.

I have my router hooked up, it is acknowledging the connection to the internet, but the internet light on the modem is red and i cant get an internet connection. i got the router but no cd, is this an...



You do not need the CD:
Unplug the power from the router and the cable modem.
Wait 30 sec. then plug in the power to the cable modem, wait 30 sec. then plug the power to the router. Wait till you have "Internet" light then restart your PC. The PC should pick up an IP address and you should be able to get on-line. This is if you have a cable service provider. If you have DSL, the router needs to be configured with PPPOe.

Using your web browser go to URL address http://192.168.1.1. You will then be prompted to login to your router. A log-in screen asking for the password will automatically appear. At this time enter the default password “admin”, in lower case letters into the password field. The username field may be left blank at this time. (Note: both the default username and default password are set to “admin” on some of the newer Linksys router models).

Router not hooked up properly


Router setup
If you are using the cd that comes with the router, that is the problem. You do not have to use the cd. Go to the control panel and un-install the program that the cd installed.
then:
Shutdown your PC. Unplug the power from the router and the cable modem.
Wait 30 sec. then plug in the power to the cable modem, wait 30 sec. then plug the power to the router. Wait till you have "Internet" light then restart your PC. The PC should pick up an IP address and you should be able to get on-line.



If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe
