Re: connecting my router

No probs, first let me explain about the connection, normally in a linksys router u would see 4 ethernet lights and 1 internet light, 1 power.. and a wlan light and cisco s/m light..if u turn on the power for the router, u would see the power light and the wlan light in the router, and if u connect ur modem to the router's internet port with a ethernet cable, u would c the inter light lit up., and if ur router is configured properly, u would be able to view ur w/ls n/w name in ur laptop and u can try to connect to the name and that would fix ur problem.. and in case ur router is not configured , connect a cable in any of the four ethernet slots in the router and ur laptop with a cable a brower page .. login to and the default user name and passwd is no user name (blank), passwd is admin, login to the setup, config the router and that would fix..or else connect all the cables and run the setup cd which came with ur router and that would fix the problem and then u can remove the cable in b/wn ur router and laptop..

Re: connecting my router

Ok, so the ethernet port on your DSL or Cable modem has to be connected to the WAN port on the router first and foremost. Then I would suggest that you connect the ethernet port on the laptop to port 1 on the router, and attempt to log in that way. Bring up your browser (Internet Exploder, Netscape, etc.) and type (if that doesn't work try, Linksys switches it up) in the adress bar... and ensure that you can get in that way. Then try surfing the web to see if it connects correctly... although you may need to speak to your Internet Service Provider to ensure that they are allowing your MAC Address to connect to their Network... the one under the WAN settings, NOT the LAN settings. It should look like this... MAC Address: 00:01:81:52:3f:99

Setup of d link dsl-2740b on my computer

the dsl connection is your broadband signal. check the router box. if the dsl light is off or flashing on the front, the setup will not work. this light needs to be solid. remove all devices from telephone sockets in your house, connect just one filter and your new router to it. check the dsl signal, if the light is solid green. the problem is with the physical setup in your house. If the dsl light still flashes contact your isp or broadband supplier.

For some odd reason my wifi light on netgar isnt lighting (desktop computer) . but im trying to hook my laptop through it and it wont let me, whats wrong?

Hi, the wireless light will not lit up if it has been disabled on the configuration or the router has been reset in the past. The only way to get the wifi working is by reconfiguring it. Please perform the steps below to reset and reconfigure the router:


1. Connect a Ethernet cable from the modem to the WAN port of the router(isolated port).
2. Connect the computer to the router using any one of the 4 available ports. Please make sure that THERE IS NO DIRECT CONNECTION BETWEEN THE MODEM AND THE COMPUTERS (either using Ethernet cable or USB cable).
3. Power off the modem and the router after making the connections.
4. Power on the modem and wait for the lights, then power on the router.


1. Open the browser(Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox).
2. Access the router, usually with or
3. Login to the router with the Username as "admin" and Password as "password" (please note that the username and password is case sensitive).
4. Click on 'Basic settings' from the left menu and select 'Use Computers MAC Address' from 'router MAC Address' section.
5. Click Apply.
6. Once it updates the settings then power off the modem and the router. Power on the modem and wait for the lights, then power on the router.
Once online on the main computer connected through the router. Perform the following tasks to configure the wireless connection:
On the router settings page

1. Click on wireless settings from the left menu.
2. Select security options as 'WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy)'.
3. Set the 'Authentication Type' as 'Automatic'.
4. Set the 'Encryption Strength' as 64-bit.
5. In Key 1 type a 10 digit number.
6. Apply the settings.

Scan for the wireless network on the laptop and connect to your network.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue.

My router doesnt seem to be Broadcasting the wireless connecition!

it may be that the router is not assigning ip addreses properly, and is duplicating the ip address on all pc's. or you have done the windows diagnose and repair or detect problems. Go to the properties of each wireless card in control panel>network connections and on the TCP/IP line click propertes again and ensure obtain ip address automatically is checked. Also go into the routers settings and ensure DHCP is enabled to give all pc's an automatic ip address. Restart all pc's and your router (not Reset) and you should get renewed ip addresses and be able to connect.
