Re: convert from DSL to cable

I think wat ya need to do is completely set it all up again, right from the start.. I enclose a link for a manual & the other one is for the "Driver". review-manual/id/420ci364/t/1-2/ wireless-router-firmware-1.03-free-download.html Your "Provider" will have a different setup and address etc... indeed maybe they will have setup software and logon details on their web site, I suggest ya check that.

How to convert a tata photon in to a wifi connection

First, you need an internet gateway. Do you have already some kind of internet connection through DSL, CABLE Modem, etc? The TP wifi will first have to be connected to your network (wired LAN). Then, once that is done, you need a computer with web browser to access and configure the setting in the TP. There is a CD that comes with the TP. It contains "Easy Setup Assistant" program to configure your TP wifi.

How do i connect a wifi router to the dsl of my pc?

Your internet provider should have provided you with a modem (dsl modem) that will have a ethernet port which can be connected to a computer directly or a router to make internet available to multiple computers. Router usually comes with five ports one of them is WAN port (Wide Area Network) and other four are LAN ports (Local Area Network) The dsl modem should be connected to WAN port of your router and the LAN ports are use to connect to any computer with an ethernet cable. If the router has wireless capability you can use your laptop or smartphone to access internet wirelessly!

What is difference between lan card and modem

Hi there,

The difference between a Lsn Card and a modem are this - A Lan card is a card that you slide into the side of a laptop and it can allow you the ability to get onto a network wirelessly. A Lan card for a PC allows a Lan connection by way of a CAT 5 cable that will allow you to get onto the internet or if a crossover cable is attached to your pc to another you are directly connected to the network. A modem is a piece of hardware that is installed into a slot in the PC that will allow you the ability to get onto the internet by attaching a phone line to it through the RJ 11 jack (which it comes with 2 rj11 jacks on it).

Here is the picture of LAN port and Modem port

If I have a wireless router do I still need a modem?

It is depend on which type of connection cable your internet service provider.
You don't need modem if in your router ADSL port and your ISP gives you ADSL but if on wi fi router there not dsl port and your ISP gives you dsl cable then you need modem.

Let me know if you need more assistanse.

Resuming verizon dsl usb internet connection

If you reformatted your Windows on your pc, there's no need to change the settings of your network connections. The Westell 6100 can either be connected to your pc using the Ethernet port or the USB port if you're using the combo cable or Y-cable. It's more stable to use the Ethernet port for your Lan connection. For the USB, to reinstall the USB connection properly, you'll need the Verizon Installation CD. Make sure the USB is not connected to your PC first before you install it. You just need to follow the CD because it will tell you when to hook up the USB cable to the pc. If you still have the CD, after it runs, you have to select existing customer and then select connect new modem. After that you just to have follow the steps to install the USB connection properly and then your modem will work fine afterwards. If the problem still persists, you can try replacing the cable. If all else fails, it could be a modem problem already. You also need to check your Network Interface Card of NIC as we call it, it's built in your pc. it's the device that allows your pc to communicate with the modem. Normally after reinstalling windows, the NIC is forgotten, make sure you also install the drivers and utilities Cd for your windows.

With a Linksys Router is a 2wire modem needed?

Do you have internet service (Cable, DSL, etc.)? If so, a router is a great tool for keeping the bad guys out of your home network. If you don't have an internet connection, a router is very useful for connecting multiple computers together. In some cases, you may want to share resources with a neighbor (unlikely, but possible). A wireless router would be extremely useful in this scenario.

So in answer to your question, a router doesn't need a modem to operate but it does need an internet connection to get you on the internet. A router by itself does not provide internet connectivity.
