''Network Cable Unplugged'' problem on Linksys but not on D-Link

Hi,

Recently I've just bought a new AG241 Linksys ADSL2 gateway because I've decided to use ADSL for my internet connection.

Before that I was using wireless broadband and a D-Link DI-704P router.

The setup went well, and the internet connection is superb now, until I realised this problem.

I have a 4 PC LAN in my house. The thing is, when I use the old D Link router, all 4 of them are connected to the LAN succesfully. Now when I use the Linksys router, 1 of them got a ''network cable unplugged'' problem. At first I thought it's a cable faulty. But when I reverted back to the old router, it works fine.

How come a same cable is treated differently by 2 different routers? Please help and pardon my English ^^

Most likely the connection inside your new gateway is bad - you should return it under warranty & get a new one.

Linksys WAG200G doesn't have a green light with the internet.


Try unplugging the WAG200 ADSL Home Gateway, leave it off for a minute, then plug it back in. Sounds too simple, but it works more than half the time.

Internet access problem with a Linksys 54g router


Try setting the default gateway on the laptop to the ip address of your ICS gateway machine. Some routers separate the wireless and LAN connections on different subnets.

Try comparing your laptops ip information with that of one of the working wired computers. You can do this by going to Start up to run and type cmd then click "ok"

At the black prompt screen type "ipconfig" without the "".

You want to compare the IP Address, Submet Mask, and Default Gateway.

If one has an ip of 192.168.1.* and the other has 192.168.0.* then the wireless and wired are on seperate networks.

If the subnet masks are something like 255.255.255.0 and 255.255.255.1 they are on seperate subnets. Both should be fixable by putting in the same default gateway.

For example if your ICS gateway is 192.168.1.1 then set that as the default gatway on the wireless laptop. This can be done by going to start >> Control Panel >> Network Connections then right click your wireless connection and goto properties then double click on the "Internet Protocol (tcp/ip)" option. This will list all of your ip information (if its static) if its dynamic (ip gotten from router) you can still click "Use the following DNS server address" and set preffered dns to the gateway ICS ip. Or click "Advanced" and click Add under Default Gateways and add the gateway ICS ip there.

LinkSYS ADSL2 -AG241Modem + Router Ethernet


Hi,

First : check your cables if its plugged in securely on each each
port
Second: Try to change their ends
Third : Try to replace your Ethernet cable.

If your router is connected to a modem try to isolate the problem by connecting your router directly to your computer and check f light would turn on. IF YES then thers something wrong with your modem, check it out.

Hope those simple steps ive provided helped you in way, If not pls let me know and lets keep the ball rolling.

Cheers.

Setting up linksys adsl2 modem


The ADSL, Ethernet, and USB ports are located at the back of a Linksys modem. These ports are where the phone cable and computer will be connected. The ADSL Line should be connected to the ADSL port and the computer either be connected to Ethernet or the USB port., If u r using a ethernet cable no need to run the setup cd just connect the ethernet cable and contact ur isp..
do not worry about ur sagem modem, let it be inside.. just connect ethernet cables alone..

To setup a Linksys ADSL Modem with usb cable you need to perform two steps:
  1. Connecting the Devices Together
  2. Installing the USB Driver
Connecting the Devices Together
Step 1:
Connect the phone cable to the wall jack with ADSL service and then connect the other end to the ADSL port of the modem.
Step 2:
Make sure the power adapter is plugged to an available power outlet.
Step 3:
Connect the USB to the USB port on the back of the modem and then connect the other end top the USB port of the computer.
Step 4:
Power on the modem. After connecting the device together, install the USB driver. For instructions, follow the steps below.
Installing the USB Driver
Step 1:
Power on the computer.
Step 2:
When the Hardware Update Wizard window appears. Click Install the software automatically (Recommended).
NOTE: Windows XP has pre-installed drivers for the ADSL2MUE and will automatically install the USB driver for the modem.
Step 3:
Click Finish.

LINKSYS WIRELESS - G WAG54GS


Diana, The router has lost its IP address from the ADSL gateway. Unplug the router from the wall for about a minute or two. Plug it back in..? If that doesn't work you need to login to your router and check the settings. or(there is a small reset button on the back of the router. Hold it in for 10 seconds the router will reset.) http://www.linksys.com/servlet/Satellite?c=L_Content_C1&childpagename=US%2FLayout&cid=1114037290855&pagename=Linksys%2FCommon%2FVisitorWrapper http://www.linksys.com/servlet/Satellite?c=L_Content_C1&childpagename=US%2FLayout&cid=1114037290855&pagename=Linksys%2FCommon%2FVisitorWrapper If possible turn your computers off while resetting the connection. Some inter Microsoft networks will issue its own IP if it doesn't detect one. Good Luck, Tim
