Router not allowing Wired or Wireless connection

I somehow screwed up the connection earlier. I can run a solid connection through the modem but the moment it touches my router a Motorola wr850 (silver one) I can't get on to adjust the setting of the router and have tried hard reseting it but it did not take any effect.

Look through the documentation for instructions on defaulting the router. Default the router and re-connect to your modem and connect 1 computer in lan port 1. If you can get into the admin of the router and connect to the internet then attach your second computer and so on.

How do I change from wired hookup to wireless? Bob


Instructions
Things You'll Need
Broadband modem
Router compatible with modem
Internal or external wireless network adapter
Phillips screwdriver
Suggest Edits
  1. Prepare the Network
  • Purchase and setup a wireless broadband router by interfacing it with your wired computer. Choose a router that is compatible with your broadband modem and that supports the wireless network type you desire.
  • Enable WPA or WPA-2 security, and change your router's default password. Give your SSID or wireless network a memorable name.
  • Connect your modem to the WAN (wide area network) port on your router.

  1. Install an Internal Card
  • Purchase a wireless network card that is compatible with the router you purchased and with your computer. For example, if you bought a 802.11 b/g router, do not purchase an 802.11 n adapter.
  • Shut down your computer. Remove all cables and peripheral devices.
  • Remove the left side panel while facing the front of the case. You may need to remove screws or to manipulate latches and notches. Consult your case or computer manufacturer's documentation if you are unsure of how to remove the panel.
  • Clip the metal part of the anti-static wrist bracelet to a metal object, and ******** the bracelet.
  • Locate an available PCI or PCI-Express slot. Unscrew the screw that secures the slot cover that corresponds with the slot, then remove the slot cover.
  • Line up the wireless adapter's pins with the slot. Insert the card until it clicks into place. Do not force the card into the slot, or you may damage the card's connectors. If you feel resistance, remove the card, line up the card with the slot again, and reinsert.
  • Secure the card with the slot cover screw. Reattach the side panel, and replace any screws you removed earlier.
  • Reinsert all cables, and plug in all peripherals. Boot the computer.
  • Allow Windows the opportunity to detect the card. It should automatically install the drivers for the card. If you have updated drivers, insert the disk and install according to on-screen instructions.
  1. Install an External Card
  • Boot up your computer.
  • Insert your external wireless adapter into the appropriate slot. For example, if you purchased a USB slot, insert it into a USB port.
  • Allow Windows the opportunity to detect the card. It should automatically install the drivers for the card. If you have updated drivers, insert the disk and install according to on-screen instructions
  • Complete Setup
  • Double-click the network icon in the task bar.
  • Highlight your wireless network. Windows will display the name you entered when setting up your router
  • Click the "Connect" button.
  • Enter and verify the security key you created when setting up the router. Click on "Connect."
If you have further query then try to let me know. Thanks for using FixYa.

How to Configure Belkin routers for Centurylink, Embarq, Bell sympatico, Bell...


How to Configure Belkin routers without installation CD for Centurylink, Embarq, Bell sympatico, Bell Canada ISPs ?
Configuring Belkin routers without installation CD for Centurylink, Embarq, Bell sympatico, Bell Canada ISPs :
  • Connect the Computer to the Router in one of the 4 ports named wired (usually grey in color) using an Ethernet cable.
  • Do not connect the modem to the router.
  • Open internet explorer / Firefox / chrome or any of your default web browser.
  • In the address bar type the default gateway address of Belkin router i.e., 192.168.2.1
  • Belkin router setup page (RSP) will be displayed.
f7dd033.jpg
Wired Part Configuration:
We need to configure the wired part by following these steps.
Step 1: You need to LOGIN to the router for making any changes. (No login password, just leave it blank and click SUBMIT)
Step 2: Click on LAN settings (found on left side of RSP), change the IP address from 192.168.2.1 to 192.168.40.1 and save changes.
Step 3: Now Connect the DSL Modem to Router in the port named Modem (usually yellow in color) using another Ethernet cable.
***Once you are done that, you need to re-login to RSP by typing the new IP address 192.168.40.1 in the address bar of web browser.

Step 4: Check for the internet status at the top right hand corner of RSP. If it is connected then the wired part is working perfect with the router (wired computers will go online). Need not follow the steps below, directly jump to wireless part configuration.
Step 5: If the Internet Status is not connected then, click on CONNECTION TYPE (found on left side of RSP), it has to be selected as DYNAMIC and click next. It will ask for HOST NAME, leave it blank or you can type anything there and click on APPLY CHANGES.
Step 6: Now check for the internet status at the top right hand corner of belkin RSP. If it says connected then everything for the wired part is configured perfectly. You can go ahead and configure for the wireless part.
If it is not connected then we need to do a network power cycle.

Steps to be followed for performing Network power cycle:
  • Unplug the power cable of both your modem and router.
  • Wait for 30 seconds.
  • Plug back the power cable of the modem and wait until all the lights are lit up in it.
  • Now plug back the power cable to the router and check for the lights in the router.
Modem & Internet lights will be lit and they will be solid (blue/green) in the router; it says that the Internet status is connected. Now you will be able to go online in the wired computers.

If still Modem & Internet lights are not solid in the router; it may be blinking in red/ amber it says that the Internet status is not connected. You will not be able to go online in the wired computers.

In this case you need to connect your computer directly to the modem and check whether you are able to go online. If you are not able to go online, then you need to contact your ISP and fix your issue with internet.

The above method is applicable only for Embarq, century link, Bell Sympatico, Bell Canada ISPs. Because these ISPs will have the IP address same as Belkin routers....

If nothing works then you need to contact your ISP and ask them to bridge the modem...Bridging the modem disables NAT in the modem and allows you to get a public IP in the modem.

I connected my new dlink 600 router to my cable modem. Not only does the wireless network not work but the ethernet connection does not work. On top of that I can no longer access the web directly...


When you connect a router to a modem, you should power everything off and restart in this order:
1. Power up the modem, allowing a minute or so for it to run thru its initial diagnostics. 2. Power up the router. 3. Turn on the computer.
It's best if for the first time you do this that you have a wired connection to your router. With the wired connection, you'll be able to setup the secured wireless passcode and the like.
Most likely, what happened was that your router wasn't interfacing properly with your modem and was spitting out 169.x.x.x IP addresses. This169 address signals that the Network Card on the computer isn't finding the DHCP server of the router which is what assigns IP addresses. By booting everything up in the order above, your problem should be solved.

Sitecom WL-342 Wireless Router won't access internet.


Hello,

Make sure there is a network cable going from your ADSL modem into the WAN connection of the router.

If the ADSL modem is wireless, then it is also a router in whihc case you will want to bypass the WL-342 all together.

Thanks,

Share Your Internet Connection with More Than One Computer- The Easy Way


Here is a simple way share your home internet connection with more than one computer. This will work for both wired and wireless and doesn't require alot of technical or computer skills to accomplish. I'm sure there are other ways, but if you're looking for a simple repeatable setup, here it is.

If you've got a dsl connection through a dsl modem, this TIP will work for you.
If you've got a cable modem, this TIP will work just as well.

Here's a list of what you'll need.

  1. Dsl or cable modem that works on your system and you can access internet with one computer (If you're using the internet, most likely you've got this already).
  2. Wired (Ethernet) or Wireless Router (wifi routers have 4-6 ethernet ports also).
  3. For Wired: Ethernet cable to connect modem to router.
  4. For Wireless: Wifi compatible computer or wifi card for your computer (follow manufacturer's instructions for proper install).
Procedure:
  1. Turn all components off. This includes anything on your existing network- computer, modem, printer and any router you may currently be using.
  2. With all power off, connect an ethernet cable between your modem and your new cable/dsl router(wired or wireless).
  3. Turn on the power to your new router only and let it boot up completely.
  4. Turn on the dsl/cable modem and allow it to boot. Since the router was booted first, the modem with recognize the router's MAC address (ethernet numerical address) and connect that address to the internet.
  5. Connect all the other components onto the router with the ethernet cables as needed and turn on the components- no particular order is necessary after the router and modem are booted. Your router will assign MAC addresses to all the ethernet components. Once the MAC address is assigned, your computer should work correctly with the internet and shouldn't drop out when the second computer is turned on.
  6. For wireless connections, boot up your computer with the properly installed Wifi card, airport card and allow it to "find" your router. Once you get confirmation of the signal, you're good to go.
Following this procedure will allow your modem, your router to use their designed software to connect you without a bunch of programming. You will actually enjoy having more than one computer sharing an internet connection.

Remember this procedure and follow the steps again if you lose power and have to reboot your network.

The only light on my router is the router light. No other lights are coming on. I have tried rebooting.


When facing the router, Globe/Internet LED is on the right. Below are the LED indicators; Check the steps below:

Wireless Security - This light will only turn on if the wireless security is enabled.

Wireless-Computer Status - This light will turn on if a wireless computer is connected to the router.

Wired-computer Status - This light will turn on if a wired computer is connected to the router. Connect the wired computer to any gray port on the router. (There are 4 gray ports).

Router Status - Power light. Solid blue means the router is on and ready.

Modem Status - If this is off, it means the router is not connected to the modem. Make sure the cable is connected from the modem to the yellow port on the router.

Internet Status - This light will indicate if the router is connected to the internet.

If this is the first time you are installing the router, then what is important is to get the router, wired-computer and modem lights ON. Once they are on, you may insert the CD that came with the Belkin router to setup the internet connection and wireless settings.

If a LAN connected PC will not work while a wireless laptop is connected you need to go into advanced router setup, bandwidth management, and untick the three boxes labeled "active" to disable the band width management. Easy!
