Get an ethernet cable (It's what you are allready using to conect your computer to the modem) then plug one end into the modems ethernet port and the other into the port on your router that is set apart from the others. then pres the reset button for 30 seconds. then plug both of your computers into the router. If you need to change something when you are plugged into your router go to 192.168.1.1 the there is no username the password by default is admin. Hope that I can help.

dont know the specifics but you shouldnt need to bother with any of that. just connect router to your modem then connect everythign else to the router if using cable. then just set everything to DNHP or dynamic addressing on your router and also on anything you have connected including xbox and pcs. then switch everything off then switch router on, wait a munite then switch everything else on and all the IPs will then l be allocated automaically.

2nd pc was connecting yesterday now it says not connected to main pc. could a virus cause this


Shutdown all your PCs. 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 PCs. The PC should pick up an IP address and you should be able to get on-line.

So how is the other computer supposed to work on the internet, if this wireless router is hooked up with the current modem? If I need another part, then why did I spend $150, and not get all I needed??


Before you bought the wireless router, you probably had one computer directly hooked up to the modem (the box you got from your internet provider). The wireless router should have come with a cable similar to the one that had previously connected the modem to your computer.
When you use a router, the original cable from the modem is disconnected from the back of your computer and is instead plugged into the INPUT of your router. The cable that came with the router is then plugged in to the original computer.
So far, so good.
Now, when you want to add additional computers to the internet, you can do it in two ways: either wirelessly (which means the other computers need to have wireless capability already built in - which is the case with laptop and notebook computers, or they have to have a wireless card installed); or you have to purchase another cable (like the one that came with your router) to directly connect the other computer to the router.
The only time an additional cost would be involved is if you needed to purchase another cable (for a direct connection), or if your other computer doesn't have wireless capability.
Does that answer your question?

Linksys wireless on my desktop,trying to use another computer in dining room that has a router or rooter dont know what it is, cant get online please help,the wireless rooter is connected to my main...


You do not need 2 routers to connect to the internet infact you need only 1. having 2 conflicts with pcs and causing them not to work.

From the wall you have your cable fro your internet that plugs into your modem, from the modem it plugs into the router by ethernet cable to the uplink slot and then your computers connect to the router. Most routers can connect 4 computers at once. If running them all wirelessly just reboot them and they should connect automatically. If your wiring them plug them into the back by an ethernet cable in the slots 1 for the first PC, 2 for the second so on and so on. You may have to cold boot everything at first meaning shut down all the computers, unplug the router and modem. Then Plug in the modem let it boot up, plug in the router let it boot up then the pcs.

If you need more hook ups if 4 isnt enough yo uneed a switch or access point not another router.

Let me know If this helps and if I can help further.

Cannot use model #f5d8233-4v3


If you have their provided cable modem, you would use a crossover ethernet cable to connect the router in between their modem and your PC... First thing power off everything, disconnect the ethernet cable from y our PCs NIC card and plug it into the internet port (usually yellow) on the router, from the routers end, choose a LAN port on the router and connect an ethernet cable in it, then take the other end of the cable you just plugged into the router and plug it into your PCs NIC card... Now within your OS you will have to change the default gateway settings to reflect the routers IP address (user defined IP address) and then you should be set.... Let me know if it works and how else I can help you....

Router doesnt connect to internet


This sounds like a problem with your DSL modem, not the router. Try unplugging both devices and wait about 10 seconds. Plug in the modem first and wait about 30 seconds (at this point the Internet light should be on). Now plug in the router and wait another 30 seconds. This problem is normally due to the modem not getting sync. I would try plugging your laptop directly into modem if this doesn't work to see if you then have Internet. If not call your ISP.

Only 1 computer getting internet with FS605


Sorry to say, you have the wrong part. Whoever told you you could hook it up to both your PCs and your cable modem didn't know what they were talking about.

Your FS605 is just a switch; hooked up directly to a cable modem, you will only see one IP address as that's all the cable modem will allocate.

What you need is a router, to allocate multiple local IP addresses and share the connection up to the cable modem.

Linksys BEFSR41 routers are ridiculously cheap these days and highly reliable, or if you like Netgear, you'll need the RP614.
