Question about Linksys Wireless-G Broadband Router

1 Answer

Forgot which cables go to what for wireless within the house

Every thing was working just fine the day before as I changed ISP, there modem is connected and running just fine however for the life of me my router is not.
All the lights are working as they should however every way I try with the cable connections I am not able to connect.

I am thinking it is a simple fix perhaps I over looked some thing or have some thing backwards.

I have photos of the connections with and without router connections should you want to see to let me know how to re-route things...and yes I know the order in which to shut down and power back up. Unless that has change please advise...thanks

Your router goes between the modem and computer. The WAN side of the router gets connected to the modem and the LAN side of the router goes to the computer(s). Once connected, start the router and let it stabilize, then start the computer.

Can I disable wireless and connect with ethernet cord and modem, for work do not want remove wireless cord, in the day want to be able to use my wireless.


Are you talking about direct-connecting via Ethernet to a cable or DSL modem? You shouldn't have to disable wireless to do that. If the cable modem has an open Ethernet port, you should be able to run a straight-thru Ethernet Cat-5 cable between that port and the Ethernet port on your laptop. The laptop should recognize that it is connected to the modem through the direct connection. Check the manual for the cable modem or information supplied by your ISP for connection details. You may have to do some setup on the modem to get an Internet connection, like having your ISP 'activate' the modem. Just be sure your Ethernet cable is a straight-thru, standard Ethernet cable, and not a 'cross-over' cable such as is used to transfer data between two computers.

Hi,
Welcome to FixYa!

For you to be able to do that, you will need to set the SMC router to bridge mode, you will not be able to do that by yourself because only tech from your ISP have the capability of doing that since they have this tool that can operate on the router setting it to bridgemode. Basically, you will need to call your ISP to set the router to bridgemode and from there, you will be able to configure the linksys router.
Hope this information will help.

Your response is very much appreciated. Thank you for using FixYa!

The wireless network is being picked up by the laptops in the house, but there is no internet connection between the modem and the router. MY router is a Belkin G Wireless


if you connect the computer directly to the modem, does it work?
If your computer is able to go online through the modem, that means the modem is working fine.

My computer wont recognize the 2 wire modem


may be you are using the wrong RJ from the modem to pc. Check with RJ45.. Else if you are using wireless modem.
I suggest you switch off pc
Remove USB cable to modem
Start computer
Uninstall all drivers for the modem and software. Delete network settings.
Install software without inserting USB cable untill it asks you to insert
I guess you can follow from there and get details from ISP how to log on and password
Hope all goes well

ARRIS Modem + D-Link router = no internet


when you are on Cable Internet with a "modem" only connected directly to the computer, what the ISP see is the computer's MAC Address (command prompt -> type ipconfig and hit enter).

put a router (which has it's own MAC Address) in-between and the ISP wont let you cause it sees the router not the computer.

check physical connection: cable modem -> router -> computer(hard wire for this troubleshooting)

access the d-link gui and locate the “Clone MAC Address" button (supposed to clone the computers MAC Address - verify if it's the same), save settings & reboot the router.
