Question about Linksys Ultra RangePlus Wireless Routr Router
I recently purchased a Liksys dual range router that is designed for gaming and media transfer to go along with the Linksys Media Center Extender that I bought. The 2 Wire modem that I have is a cable modem that hooks up to my 2 desktops in the house wirelessly. It is my understanding that I have to hook up to the modem with an ethernet cable directly to my computer so the software that came with the router can preform the appropriate test to see if the internet connection will work. When I plug a wire into the back of the modem there is no connection to the internet. What am I doing wrong. I called AT&T tech support but they told me they can't help me even thought they supplied the modem, because it is a 2 Wire product and not their equipment.
2nd, the desktop that I want to extend my media center to living room from is in another room away from the router and modem. Once the internet connection is resolved will I be able to connect to the modem and the router wirelessly, or does the router need to be wired to that specific desktop.
Ok once your internet is resolved you shouldnt need to have any computer hard wired to the router but it should go like this cable from your wall to the modem, then cable from modem to the router, after that you can go wireless all the way just make sure that its all secure and encrypted dont want the next door neighbor stealin your internet

leave the wireless router settings unsecured then place the range expander as near as possible to the router. press autoconfig buttons and observe the lights...

i went through the problem ur facing and the only solution that comes into my mind is that u will have to do the wireless settings on the router and copy the same settings on the range expander as well .... no changes.... and do remember that range expander at that time should be connected to the router at that time with the help of an ethrnet cable .....
ity would be working like a horse then ...
