I might advise you to reconfigure the speed stream maybe there are some hardware lock ups inside to the router, Reconfiguring the router might fix your concerns.

Tip

Multiple Computers on Same Network, Continual Internet Connection Dropout


After adding that second or third computer to your home network are you constantly fighting over who's using the internet connection? When your high schooler logs into his facebook chat, are you getting dropped off of your internet connection?
Or have you added a wifi router and is your whole network not staying connected like it did before you added your wifi?
These are common issues and we answer these questions often at FixYa.
Here is s a tip that will get you past the internet connection being dropped by someone else on your network attempting to log into the internet or help you get that wifi up and working with out all the cut outs and drop offs.

Follow this simple procedure and you'll be amazed!
1. Turn off everything. Turn off computers, routers, modem, printers... everything that's on your LAN (local area network) or home ethernet.
2. Turn on your wireless router next. With the ethernet cable connected to your wifi router to your modem and let it cycle up to running. If you aren't running wifi, do this with your main router. Make sure your modem and everything else is still off.
3. Turn on your modem (enet cable attached to wifi router or main router) and let the modem cycle up to running.

What you've done is allowed your wifi router to be established as the "MAC" Address for your modem. Modems look for a single MAC address. Once the router has this address, the router will maintain the connection with the modem and the internet, AND will assign MAC addresses to your computers, network printers, network routers etc, while still maintaining your connection to the internet.

4. Turn on all other peripherals, computers and network printers. At this point the order of power up isn't important, because your router will be assigning separate addresses to all the computers, etc on your network.

That's it! The secret's out! Just keep this handy... remember if you have power outage, you'll need to reboot in this order again... Happy Home Networking

The easy in stall wizard says it cant find the network settings


It says that your internet service provider settings was not configured on router.... you can login to router manually by hardwiring any computer to wired port of router and by typing 192.168.2.1 in any web browser.... if your ISP is cable, then you need to do change the connection type to dynamic, and you need to do a mac clone, then turn off both modem and router...and turn on both, the status will change to connected.... in this case you ll never need the cd to be installed on your computer....

Low connection speed through the router


10 mb sounds like a wireless ... 28 doesn't sound good for wire ... this is a 10-100 router it should run faster.

LinkSys is a Cisco company. Cisco also owns Network Magic and you can get a free down load for eval purposes copy of this very good network manager. After the eval period you can purchase or not. If "or not", yo can still use the product with some features disables.

So why get it? It is a very good diagonosis tool and it may help answer the question of why you only get 20 md connection.

2Wire Home Portal 1100 for AT&T DSL connection problem


HI! read your posting regarding the situation that your experiencing.. If before you dont have any problem regrding your connection with out the cisco network magic. I suggest that before you install the cisco network magic. you should get the full version not the trial version, there is a limitation of setting up the trial version.. Cisco network magic is a plug and play and easy to setup if you get the full version. I dont see any problem regarding your connection with the 2wire and the linksys router, becoz you mention earlier that hime network is working and you can connect to the network and the internet..

Please Help! My IP is driving me crazy!


modem only transmits signal.

router talks to your provider and gets IP address from them, depending on your subscription, you may have a static or dynamic IP.

your computer gets internal (home network) IP from the router, you don't have to worry about that since it is the router's IP address that is seen on the internet (router splits / shares a single internet connection in home networks).

about wireless connection from computers/wi-fi gadgets to the router, must configure the router with the ff:

wireless network name (aka SSID)
security type (WPA/WEP) and password/passphrase/security key
channel (1-12)

the above info must be then set to the connecting computers/gadgets

about wired connection: a working ethernet cable (looks like a phone cord but fatter) and a working computer/gadget ethernet port.


Wii will work - check Wii's website for connectivity options / instructions.

Lost internet connection


If that Toshiba laptop is not in use do you still experience that problem?
You may change wireless channel in your router.
Do a firmware upgrade for your router as well.

Hope this helps!

Lost Ethernet and Wireless Connections in Modem


I've not used one of these 2wire boxes before, but I believe the default router's address is 192.168.0.1. Try this instead of gateway.2wire.net to see if you can gain access to the router. This is just the starting point, but see if it works.

Here's a link to, what I believe is, the router's manual.

Before you rate this please let me try to help some more. This could be a multi step process...
