  • rick764 Feb 03, 2009

    The modem plugs into the router. The router is a Kyrocera KR2 it is model KR2

  • rick764 Feb 03, 2009

    how do I do that?

  • rick764 Feb 04, 2009

    the mac id is 001460f47a21. Is that the mac address?

    The modem inserts into a usb port on the router. It is new as of today. AT&T claims their modem will work with a router but will not support it.

  • rick764 Feb 04, 2009

Follow cation007's recommendations.When finished, open a command prompt window (Start|Run|cmd).

Type ipconfig and Reply the results here. But make sure you follow cation007's instructions to the letter.

And try 2 more things and report back.

1) Connect an ethernet cable between one of the data ports on the router, and one of the computers your trying to connect to the Internet through the router. Allow the NIC card to settle down, then see if you can get on the Internet. Reply back your findings.
2) If the above doesn't work, disconnect the ethernet cable between the modem and the router. Connect the ethernet cable from teh modem to the computer your trying to connect to the Iinternet through the router.
Let the NIC card settle down, then try to log into the Internet. Reply back your findings.

In all cases, do the ipconfig thing and reply back your findings.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

To my understanding a Sierra Wireless 885U Compass USB Modem as those used by AT&T is only compatible with a Kyocera KR2 Version ZE 1.0.04 which was released in 9/08. Pls verify which KR2 version is it that you have.

Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

    Appreciate the rating. You could try asking AT&T to issue you a compatible modem. Here is a list of compatible modems.

Hi,
sometimes this happens due to traffic.

Do this.

Switch off the modem and router by unplugging the power cord.

disconneted the ethernet cord between router and modem.

wait for 30 secs.

Connect the power to the modem. wait till iit connects to the internet (you can see the LEDS on).
connect the ethernet cord to the modem and router.

Switch on the router.

It should work now.

If not, something is wrong with the modem or may be the cord.

How did the problem start?

Please check to see if mac address filtering is turned on, on your router.

Posted on Feb 03, 2009

  • machadojr_fe Feb 04, 2009

    please go to start>run then type cdm, when the command prompt screen comes up type ipconfig and press enter.

    Type the number you see next to the default gateway into your browser it should look something like this 0.0.0.0

    Once you have done that a prompt for a user name and password will pop up.

    The user name and password if default will be one of the following combination's

    User name = (blank) Password = PASSWORD
    User name = root Password = root
    User name = admin Password = admin
    User name = admin Password = (blank)

    Once you get into the router page there should be an option somewhere for security and one for mac address filtering. Could you please let us know what the settings on this page show.

How to resolve "Limited Or No Connectivity Errors" in Windows


When attempting to set up or make network connections on a Windows computer, you may encounter a Limited Or No Connectivity error message similar to the following:
Limited or no connectivity: The connection has limited or no connectivity. You might be unable to access the Internet or some network resources.

This message can result from any of several different technical glitches or configuration problems. Follow these steps to resolve Limited Or No Connectivity errors in Windows.
1. Determine whether your network access is functioning properly (that you can reach local network resources and the Internet). If you are using a broadband Internet and Windows XP Service Pack 2, this message is often a false error report. See Microsoft Knowledge Base article 892896 for details on how to work around this error appropriately.
2. If your network access is non-functional. continue to the following steps.
3. If your computer connects to the network through a broadband router , resetting (powering off and on) the router may resolve the issue. If not using a broadband router, or if resetting your router only temporarily resolves the issue and the error message re-appears later, continue to the following steps.
If connecting to your network using Wi-Fi and using wireless security, your WEP or other security key may not be set properly. Check the wireless security configuration on your computer's network adapter and update if it necessary.
4. If connecting to your network using an Ethernet cable, your cable may have failed. Temporarily replace your network cable with a new one to determine whether this resolves the issue.
5. If using a broadband router and DHCP on your network, check your computer's IP address to verify it is valid and not a private address that starts with 169.254. An invalid address of the form 169.254.x.x signifies your computer's inability to obtain a usable IP address from your router.
To resolve DHCP configuration problems, proceed to the following steps.
6. Reboot your computer, router (if present) and broadband modem together, then re-test your connection.
7. If your connection remains non-functional, run the Windows Network Repair utility on your computer.
8. If your connection remains non-functional, update your router settings to change from dynamic to static IP address configuration, and set an IP address on the computer appropriately.
9. If your connection remains non-functional, unplug your router and connect the computer directly to your broadband modem. If this configuration is functional, contact the manufacturer of your router for additional support.
10. If your computer is connecting to your network directly through a broadband modem, or if your Internet access remains non-functional after following the instructions above, contact your Internet provider for support.

Solution on a slow Internet connections Problem  The major  causes for a slow...


Solution on a slow Internet connections Problem 
The major  causes for a slow Internet connections. A poor-performing connection can be caused by broadband router configuration issues, wireless interference, or any of several other technical issues with your home network. Follow these steps to diagnose slow Internet connections.
 1. Broadband Router Settings
As the centerpiece of a network, a broadband router can be responsible for slow Internet connections if configured improperly. For example, the MTU setting of your router will lead to performance issues if set too high or too low. Ensure your router's settings are all consistent with the manufacturer's and your Internet Service Provider (ISP) recommendations. Carefully record any changes you make to your router's configuration so that you can undo them later if necessary.
 2. Wireless Signal Interference
Wi-Fi and other types of wireless connections may perform poorly due to signal interference, which requires computers to continually resend messages to overcome signal issues. Household appliances and even your neighbors' wireless networks can interfere with your computers. To avoid slow Internet connections due to signal interference, reposition your router for better performance and change your Wi-Fi channel number.
 3. Internet Worms
An Internet worm is a malicious software program that spreads through computer networks. If any of your computers are infected by an Internet worm, they may begin spontaneously generating network traffic without your knowledge, causing your Internet connection to appear slow. Run antivirus software regularly to diagnose and remove these worms from your computers.
 4. Running Background Applications
Some software applications you install on a computer run in the background, quietly consuming network resources. Unlike worms, these are programs designed to do useful work. Peer to peer (P2P) programs in particular can heavily utilize your network and cause connections to appear slow. It's easy to forget these applications are running. Always check computers for any programs running in the background when troubleshooting a slow network.
 5. Faulty Network Equipment
When routers, modems or cables fail, they typically won't support connections. Certain technical glitches in network equipment, however, adversely affect performance even though connections are maintained. To troubleshoot potentially faulty equipment, temporarily re-arrange and re-configure your gear while experimenting with different configurations. Try bypassing the router, swapping cables and changing network adapters to isolate the slow performance to a specific component of the system.
 6. Service Provider Issues
Internet speed ultimately depends on the service provider. Your ISP may change their network's configuration, or suffer technical difficulties, that inadvertently cause your Internet connection to run slow. ISPs may also intentionally install filters or controls on the network that can lower your performance. Don't hesitate to contact your service provider if you suspect they are responsible for a slow Internet connection.

Buffalo airstatio whr-hp-g54 router unable to connect to Orange speedtouch


I think the speedtouch modem do you have is a usb modem connection. The best solution is to call your ISP provider and request that you need to replace the usb speedtouch modem to LAN or RG45 connection. But the only problem you encounter if the internet you applied is personal only sometime they cannot provide the LAN connection to personal connection (like globe ISP).

Satellite broadband dropping out - Ipstar Satellite modem - Netgear WGR614v7 Wireless Router


Without knowing more about the network, I would suggest replacing the router and see if the problem goes away. Can you see other computers on the network when this problem is occurring? In other words, is the issue with the internet connection only? Or does all network communications cease to function?
