As you say that, you are able to go online with the modem, connect your modem- router and laptop witha cable and check if you are able to go online with the router wired first, if yes, then the w/ls settings has to be checked..open your w/ls network connection, remove your preferred wireless network and then try to reconnect again and check.. if you are not able to gon online wired with the router, disconnect power cables from modem- router , wait for 10 sec, and reconnect it , wait till all the lights come up and then reconnect, check if you are able to go online if not your router has to be reconfigured,,

plz check and revert back in case of any issues

Double check that your modem has more than just a usb port on it. There should be a network port on it too. Simply connect a network cable for the modem to the WAN port on the router and then from the router to the computer.

I have never seen a modem with only usb on it. Let me know if this helps.

Connect the lan cable from the dsl modem into the first port on your netgear router ..
make sure your dsl modem is on PPPoE mode so that it autoconnects..
Now just connect to your wireless router via your pc interface..
*Do add a network key to your wireless network to avoid unwanted access

I reset this and now it doesnt connect to my belkin router


Once reset the device will return to factory settings and won't attempt to connect to any wireless networks. You will need to follow the first time setup instructions.

This page will explain the basic steps, if you need further information please let us know.
Make sure your extender settings are the same as your wireless networks. (Same name, channel, security etc)

I have an old Victorian house with an apartment in the back above the barn/garage. I am trying to get wireless internet connections to all sections of the house but my current router (3 years old) is not...


Hello.

Yes. As you mentioned, you have a Victorian house, with very thick walls. I'd suggest drawing a diagram showing the rooms and floors that need access.

First, if possible, I would place your router in a centralized location, if all 5 people need similar strength access.

Then what you need are multiple repeaters to go with your router. Place them strategically, so that the wireless access signal can bounce off of them and go around walls, instead of through walls and floors.

Hope this helps.

So I really need help. I have a Linksys (WRT54GS) wireless router upstairs connected to the internet, printers, etc. and a Netgear (WGT624) downstairs connected to a desktop, xbox and laptop. I don't want...


More information is needed.
Is the 'WAN' port on the Netgear router connected to anything?
(cable-modem? DSL-modem?)

How many friends will come over at the same time?
How many 'LAN' ports are on the Linksys? How many ports are "free" ?
How many 'LAN' ports are on the Netgaear? How many ports are "free" ?
How many "spare" Ethernet cables do you have?

Is your goal to provide computer-to-computer connectivity,
or are you just trying to provide Internet access for everybody?

If you are "downstairs", is the wireless signal from the "upstairs" router strong-enough to provide wireless coverage "downstairs"?
