Thank you so much...

Re: NEED HELP ASAP!
The PC and Mac don't interact when they are connected to the router. The router provides a DHCP server, and the PC and Mac should simply log in to the router and run fine. If the router is a new addition too, you'll need to connect the WAN port on the router to your DSL or Cable Modem's ethernet port... and then hook up the computers to any of the open ethernet ports on the router. An ethernet port looks like an extra large phone cable connector.

>No, it really doesn't matter what type of service you have. >To get it fixed just make sure that if your mom uses a modem and you hooked the router to it, modem must be in BRIDGED mode before you can make the router work. >To set the modem to bridged mode you need to contact your mom's DSL provider so they can walk through it
In the diagram below, if this is your setup, modem has to be on Bridged Mode:
Phone jack --- modem --- Linksys Router --- computer
Who is you ISP? if you're using cable connection follow these steps:
1. Connect modem to WAN port of the WBR-2310 2. Connect computer to port 1 of the WBR-2310 3. Open web browser (IE, firefox,chrome,safari), and type in 192.168.0.1 into your address bar 4.Into the log-in page username:admin password: (none) 5.click on "SETUP" 6. Click on "MANUAL CONFIGURE" 7..in the Internet connection type, make sure that it must be in DYNAMIC IP DHCP 8. Click on CLONE YOUR PC's MAC ADDRESS button(notice that mac address will change after you click on that button) 9. Click on SAVE settings now and it will count down click on Continue after that 10. Then Try to ACCESS Internet
/... but if still you cannot access Internet try to power cycle the modem and the router.. follow these steps also
1. turn off bothe modem and router (just unplug the power cord) 2. after 1 minute, TURN ON first the modem, 3. after 1 minute again, TURN ON the router 4. after 1 minute try to access Internet
But if still no Internet connection, please look for the brand of your modem if it is speedstream 5100 or hugesnet or actiontec modem because those modem have the same IP address with your DLINK router and you need to change the IP address of your DLink then....

A cable modem & a router are two different things. You can pick up a "Cisco 'EtherFast' cable/DSL" (wired or wireless) router at Wal Mart for $35. But you need both a modem & router to get your PS3 up & running on the web. Once you get on, you'll need to set up a "PlayStation" account. Unlike the Xbox 360 Live network, PlayStation is free of charge. It's a very user-friendly interface, so you shouldn't have any problems there. Cisco will give you live customer service to walk you through hooking up your router. Please let me know you make out. If I can be of further assistance, please let me know. Good luck, bro.
Yes, You need to contact your a local cable company and sign up for service. Tell them you own your own modem and you will need to give them the HFC Mac address. Once they enter you into the system and your a paying customer everything should be smooth sailing.
Dear Guru ji, Who to connect Sigmatel S4 Chines mobile phone to laptop by GPRS for internet use.I will highly appreciate for give solution to me ASAP. Note:- GPRS already activated and working fine on same mobile. Lot's of Thanks
Because your using laptop computers and a mobile carrier for your internet services this will be a little harder then normal but not imposable.
First what you would need is a ethernet switch or hub. This should allow you use the laptop with the Verizon card as a "Gateway". You would then connect the Xbox 360 to the hub and it would share the internet from the laptop.
Windows XP, and Vista have nice networking wizards that can walk you through the settings. But be aware you may need to change the settings back when you are not using the Xbox 360.
Hi, basically it really doesn't matter what sort of PC ya using... when ya connect up to the WiFi Router, the PC "Detects the SSID" (An SSID is just a unique name say.. My_WiFi) of said Router, and then with the "Remote" Computer, you simply look for, and then connect to, that network. The DHCP address server in the Router will automatically assign the "Remote" PC a WiFi address.. and from then on it doesn't really matter what any other Operating Systems the PC's are using as you are not actually connecting to them, per se, but rather conecting thru the WiFi Router to the internet.
To access other PC's Windows "Files & Data" from a "Mac" & vice versa, is a slightly different matter.. but still easy to set up.
The links below will be of assistance to you in setting it all up.

The best way to connect up a Modem & separate WiFi Router... is: Connect Modem to Router, Router to A "Main" PC, via Ethernet cable. (Router set to DCHP Server & assign an SSID)
All Other PC's connect to the "WiFi Router".
After setting up an "Unsecured Network" & when & after, it is all working. THEN one can set up WEP security keys for the WiFi network.
