I've never worked with a 7740, but i've installed hundreds of hn7000's and hn9000's. the issue is usually that the router and modem are defaulting to the same ip address. if your router supports has a web-based config utility (as most do) try cat-5'ing to the router with your computer while the router is NOT connected to the modem. log into the router and set it's ip address to something OTHER THAN 192.168.0.1 (i use 192.168.1.1 for my customers) reboot the router and reconnect it to the modem. the ip conflict should now be resolved.

I have mtnl connection with D-link modem (502T) My connection get disconnected in between download so is there anyway that my modem could restart it self when it looses internet connection.


Signal strength drop or fluctuation are common causes of RF interference.

Try these basic troubleshooting steps:
  • Change the channel on your access point or wireless router.
  • Change the location of your wireless products. Subtle changes (2-3 feet) can make a big difference. Do not put the access point or wireless router in a cabinet or enclosure.
  • 2.4GHz phones, X-10, and bluetooth devices will interfere with your wireless network. Change the location of the base for your phone, or downgrade to 900Mhz phones, or upgrade to 5.8GHz phones.
  • The wireless signal will degrade (or die completely) when going through brick (fireplace), metal (file cabinet), steel, lead, mirrors, water (fish tank), large appliances, glass, etc.
If your wireless connection is only dropping during large file transfers or when a large number of wireless clients are connecting, change the preamble on all wireless devices to short.

Looks like conected but i cant get internet


Router might not be set up with the modem. Your router broadcast wireless signal when it is powered on, so even if it is not connected to a modem(where you get your internet from)you will have a local connection. That's normal. You need to set up the router. Call linksys technical support, if they cannot help try http://technicalsupport.blog.friendster.com

Hi there,

You have set up some kind of security on your router, you have to do the same on your laptop.
Se it as a key that have to fit the lock in order to open the dor.
When you access the router, USE A CABLE, do NOT access the router with a wireless conection.

2 Wire DSL Wireless modem range expander


you might want to try to change the wireless channel 1. open your internet browser 2. type on the address bar 192.168.1.254/management or 172.168.0.1/management and press Enter 3. type your system password (modem password) 4. go to home network -> wireless 5. change your wireless channel to 9 - 10 if after changing the channel it still wont work please check for EMI (Electro Magnetic Interference) such as electric appliances, hallucinogen lamps, WIRELESS PHONES, satellite dish and or alarm systems. also make sure that you dont put your router on a carpet. usually a good distance between your router and the computer is around 5 - 20 feet with no walls between them since walls also contribute on the interference. one last note, keep your router away from water i.e. aquariums, water dispenser and the like since water contributes to the interference of the wireless signal
