''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.

Compatibility with high speed ADSL2 Broadband


Yes, Linksys WRT160N is 100% compatible with ADSL2. Linksys WRT160N is a Broadband router.

you will not be able to use the linksys WRT160N, as an ADSL2 modem router. you should be using an ADSL2 Modem separately and connect the cable from the modem to the Linksys WRT160N. Hope this clarify the doubt.

The gateway should be "plug and play" connect it to your phone line and then to your computer with the network cable that was supplied (looks like an over sized phone cored) They always say "run cd first" but like you discovered it only contains manuals. Hope this helps.

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.

Can not connect adapter to laptop no installation CD-Rom


you have to install the driver for it to work and i assume that is not the case as you have no cd. Go here to download the driver. http://www.linksys.com/servlet/Satellite?c=L_Download_C2&childpagename=US%2FLayout&cid=1115417109934&packedargs=sku%3D1134691790190&pagename=Linksys%2FCommon%2FVisitorWrapper&lid=0993490190B03 When installed go to the properties of your adapter in network connections, then click on tcp/ip line and then properties and ensure obtain ip address automatically is ticked and press ok. You may also have to use the home network connection wizard if you havent previously to share documents over your network.
