Re: installing wireless G router

If you can get to the internet, you already have a modem connected. Either a dial-up modem or a LAN modem. Whats your configuration? Do you want to connect wireless to a laptop (or another desktop) through your desktop? Both pc's need a ethernet card. One of them needs to be a wireless ethernet. The other needs to connect to the router by cable or wireless. But, lets backup. Do you have DSL or a standard phone line?

Re: installing wireless G router

Yes, you do need a modem (DSL, Cable). This router does not function as a modem.

When I try and install my E1000 linksys router it causes the phone line (dial tone) to disappear. Also it doesn't have PPPOA as a protocol option. Also the linksys setup software says that it is n

Don't you require an RJ-11 for a phone line, cause I don't see one on this model? In any case, the ATM protocol should be handled by the ISP modem, and the router should just pick up the established network over Ethernet.

Connect the ISP modem to main uplink port. Then connect pc to any other port. Done. Some models come with a setup disc, but not absolutely required.,0.pdf

I am trying to connect a wrt150n wireless linksys router to my dsl. I am using a desktop windows 7 and laptop windows vista. Please help, I have tried everything but it just does not want to work.

unplug everything, including ethernet cables. then work in this exact order.
if you get a wireless signal and no internet, plug a computer in into the router in one of the available ports and check for internet. If no internet, unplug everything and test the modem without the router. If internet available without the router, then follow these instructions
  1. plug phone line into modem
  2. plug power into modem
  3. wait for all lights to become steady
  4. plug ethernet cable into modem
  5. plug other end of same cable into port labled "internet"
  6. wait for lights to become constant on both router and modem
  7. check your wireless device for wireless service.
if you dont get a wireless signal at all, plug your device into the rear of the router and type in the adress bar
the password and username are both "admin" or simply leave the password blank if that doesn't work

navigate to the wireless option and turn on the wireless transmiter.

I recently went back to cable broadband and am using my Belking wireless G plus mimo router again. Did not have a problem when I last used it. Now I have to reset the rounter every day to get my WIFI...

Try removing power from the modem and router for 30 seconds, plug the modem back in first then the router. Also could be WPA, have you tried to take all security off and see if it makes a difference? Made sure the os is current with updates, some older sp for xp for instance had an issue with WPA.

When I connect my WRT54G to the Filter, the phone line becomes engaged, any ideas ? Mann2007

the router connects to the DSL / CABLE modem and NOT to a DSL filter.

If thats what has happened you could damage the router

you should connect as per the instructions that came with your router


Phone line > Modem > Router > Rest of network

Note there is no filter between the line and the modem !

filters are meant to go before phones and faxes etc not into a network
for more help

Hope this clears it up for you

Configure Modem Echolife HG520s With WRT54G OR WRE54G

Not sure if I understand properly but your router should have a WAN port or an "Internet" port

your modem should be connected to it and your PC should be on any of the LAN port

Wireless router installation

Please see my response to this question. Your university's connection is most probably a LAN connection, so you'd need to follow the instructions as if you had a cable internet connection (unlike DSL, a LAN connection and cable internet connection don't require authentication with the ISP).
