Re: Cannot pick up internet with WBR1310 wirreless Router
You may want to check your network settings.
Go to start->control panel-> network connections.
Right click on your wireless connection and select properties.
A new window will appear, under "This ocnnection uses the following items" in the general tab, scroll down until you see Internet Protocol TCP/IP. Make sure the tick box beside it is checked. Select it, then click properties.
Another window will now pop up. Make sure that Obtain an IP address automatically, is selected, and Obtain DNS server address automatically is selected. Then click OK, and OK on both windows.
If this is already set correctly then the most likely cause is that you have entered the wrong wireless authentication key (password) for the encrypted network. Make sure that you have entered all of your username, SSID, and password information for that wireless connection correctly.
You also may want to check that you are in fact attempting to connect to YOUR wireless network (you may have multiple wireless networks in your area).

if you have not changed the default password and user name !
it is listed on the web page on the above link
Go to wireless tab at top of screen and look up WPA Key or WEP key and make a note of what it is on 2.4 GHz frequencies as I think this will be dual band with 5 GHz as well but Ipad will run on 2.4 GHz only as it will be 802.11n as opposed to 802.11AC
Note if you changed the user name password or user name you will have to reset the router back to factory defaults but be aware everything defaults so ISP cable settings reset (would need ISP to tell you what they are and help set them back up)
(wireless settings change so you need ethernet cable directly into router to set up wireless)
Hopefully your still set up on the router on the default user name and password !
Unplug the ISP modem completely, power, and cable. There might be a recycle (a quick push) on the modem as well. Some modems have a battery backup and will stay lit, if not connect the power, reboot and then connect the cable. The modem may take a while to fully reload after reconnecting. Then do the same with the router. Only do a quick push. Holding it in will clear custom settings on the router.
You should have green on both the modem and the router now. If not you have this to inform the ISP of your troubleshooting. GL
It's a good thing that your computers are picking up the Wifi connection. But the connection to the Internet is another matter. Call tech support of your ISP (Internet Service Provider) to make sure that your Modem (Cable or DSL) is configured to connect to the Internet at all.

If you are trying to connect your wireless router to your ADSL modem then ( ADSL Modem -->Wireless Router-->Your Computer) dont enter any values in the ISP, DNS and MAC address fields. Let them be on default as : Domain
Name Server (DNS) Address
Get Automatically From ISP
Use Default Address This would then automatically pick up the settings from your modem.
You should remember to ad a WEP key to secure your wireless.
Are you trying to set up the router.
You can do it manually without the CD.
Make sure that your computer is able to go online through the modem.
If your computer is not able to go online through the modem then you will need to call ISP first.
If your computer is able to go online through the modem
then you need to connect the computer to the router and the modem to the router.
open the set up page of the router and change the settings of the router according to the ISP.
You can follow steps to configure your router with cable modem
physical connection Modem and Router to the PC
First check that you can go online with cable modom, the next step is to connect the modem to the router and the router to the PC. The modem will attach to the router's Internet Port. You will then attach the router to the PC via any of the four Ethernet ports in the rear. Check the LED lights in the front of the router to confirm all of the connections are properly made. The Power, WLAN, Ethernet Port to PC and the Internet should all be lit.
With all connection made, you will now need to login to the router via your web browser. Type 192.168.1.1 and hit enter. You should see the login screen. Leave the username blank and type admin as the password and hit enter.
You will now need to configure the router's connection to the Internet. Under the Setup / Basic Setup section, make sure the router is setup to Automatic Configuration - DHCP. This allows the router to receive an IP address from your Internet Service Provider.
Next, go to the MAC Address Clone tab in the same area and enable Mac Address Cloning. This allows the router to clone your PCs MAC address, as the ISP may require this.
Power Cycle the Modem and Router
Now that everything is configured, you'll want to power cycle everything. This is done to make sure everything has an IP address from the modem all the way through to the PC. To power cycle, shutdown everything. Unplug the modem and router power source. Shutdown the computer. Plug in the modem and wait for all green lights. Next, plug in the router and wait a few minutes until its lights are also green. Lastly, boot up the PC. You should have an Internet connection.

-- who is your internet service provider -- what is the operating system of your computer? -- is this working fine before or is this a brand new router
you may try this and see if this help solve your problem. make sure your computer is directly connected to the router
Step 1: Shutdown the computer. Step 2: reset the router while power on then Unplug the router’s power cable. Step 3: Unplug the Broadband modem’s power cable and wait for 30 seconds. Step 4: Plug in the Broadband modem’s power cable and wait for its lights to appear stable. Step 5: Plug in the router's power cable once the modem’s lights appear stable. Step 6: Power on the computer on and configure the router settings Step 7: test the Internet connection.
if this still didnot work, upgrade the firmware of your router
configuring the router settings will depends who is your provider. if your isp is dsl you need to configure your ISP username and password on the router. if your router is a cable no need to change any settings on the router. it should automatically work
