The bars on your laptop or iPhone means that you are connected to the router! Not necessarily to internet. Your internet depends on ISP Internet service provider and modem which connected to your router. To check if you have active internet connection connect your laptop directly to modem provided by your ISP with ethernet cable and try to open a internet browser IE or Safari or Chrome or Firefox and open a webpage! If you are able to connect internet by this mean you have internet connection active. Now disconnect your lap top from modem and connect modem to your Linksys router using WAN port of LINKSYS! Its good to power off and power on (power cycle) once on modem and router to make it work!
Ensure that your AT&T DSL
self-installation kit is complete. At minimum, it should contain a DSL
modem, an AC adapter, an Ethernet cable, a telephone cable, several
telephone filters and an installation CD.
Install the telephone filters on each telephone jack that you
have a phone plugged into. Install a dual phone adapter on the jack
closest to your computer if you have an answering or fax machine,
telephone or analog modem in the same room. Then plug your telephone
equipment into the filters. Connect the telephone cable that was
provided with your installation kit into an unfiltered telephone jack.
Insert the installation CD into your CD-ROM drive. If the
installation program does not start automatically, click Start > Run
> and browse to the CD-ROM drive directory to find the installation
Connect the telephone cable that is attached to the
unfiltered wall jack to the back of the DSL modem. Connect the Ethernet
cable to the back of the modem and to the Ethernet network interface
card port on the back of your computer. Connect the AC adapter to the
back of the modem and plug it into an electrical outlet. Power the modem
Check the modem lights. There should be at least two lights
lit. These will have labels such as "Power" and "Ethernet." However,
these labels may differ depending on the model of modem you received in
your installation kit.
Complete the software installation. Enter your chosen
username and password when prompted. Check your modem to see if the
light labeled "DSL" or "Internet" is lit. Open a web browser window to
see if your DSL service has been successfully installed.
Most DSL modems have their internal network set at 192.168.1.0/255.255.255.0 which is the same address space by default in your Linksys Router... more or less the routers IP is 192.168.1.1 and the default IP of the DSL gateway is 192.168.1.1 ... following steps to fix...
hardwire a PC to the Linksys router navagate to the webpage at http://192.168.1.1 (default username *BLANK* password: admin)
first setup all wireless options SSID: (choose something other than the default "linksys" so you can tell it from all the other linksys default systems in the world), WPA/WPA2 Encryption (so only people you know can get on)
after you set all that up then go back to the basic lan setup and change the address space from 192.168.1.1 to something else (e.g. 192.168.10.1, 192.168.21.1, or so fore)
