Re: router

Hello debbie2, Ok areyou using DSL or Cable. Do this for me takea picture of the equipment you are talking about this will give me an idea of what to connect to what, because right now I am thinking this is how your system is connected. From DSL line to DSL Modem to 2Wire router to PC or From Coaxial cable to Cable modem to 2 wire router to PC That is what I am thinking. You are saying your problem is that the modem is not recogized by the router this could only be true if the modem is not connecting to the router at layer 2 of the OSI model (data link) I would ask you to reset your router to see if it connects to the modem and the pulls an address from the ISP. First I want you to log in to your router via the web page and find out what login and pass word you use to connect to your ISP. To reset your router press and hold the reset button until the lights on the front of the router blink. then log into your router again and restore the login and password. Once this is done check to see if you now have a connection between you and your ISP. Thank you, Shuttle83

Zoom X7n Dsl 2/2 Modem/router/gw DSL light will not stop blinking - trying to connect with Earthlink

Earthlink is not your local telephone company? You would need to contact your local service provider. If earthlink set up your DSL thru your local telephone company, you may have to have them contact them. Does your local phone to you or do you subscribe thru what they call a CLEC?

Make sure you internet modem is plugged into the proper input in the back, as well as making sure the computer is also plugged into the correct input.

The internet socket(where the modem goes) is normally separate from the rest of the ports.

I just got an earthlink modem and would like to

Connect your Earthlink Modem's RJ45 connector to your router's RJ45 WAN connector. The router should then provide wireless internet to other computers via their wireless cards.

Earthlink lists this as the number to call when you purchase someone else's router 1.800.327.8454. Hopefully if they are not the right people that can direct you to the correct people to call when you have earthlink's equipment.

I hope this helps.
