My linksys w/2phone ports cannot hook up with the ethernet

Most Cable Internet Service Providers (ISPs) use Media Access Control (MAC) Address authentication to establish Internet connection for end-users. MAC address is a unique identifier assigned to the network adapter/s of the computer.
To set up your Linksys router to work with a Cable ISP, you have to enable the MAC Clone feature of the router. MAC Cloning is a procedure which enables a router to copy the MAC address of the computer registered with the ISP.
To set up a Linksys router with Cable connection, you need to perform four steps using the computer that's been registered with the ISP:
i. Verifying Internet Connection
ii. Connecting the Devices Together
iii. Checking the Router's LEDs
iv. Setting Up a Linksys Router for Cable Internet Connection

Verifying Internet Connection
Connect the computer to the Broadband modem using an Ethernet cable without the router installed. If you cannot get online, contact your ISP. If it's online, use the computer to set up the router.
NOTE: Some cable modems use the USB port. If the physical connection is via USB port, you may not be able to go online via Ethernet connection. Contact your ISP to have the Ethernet port of the modem configured.

kb17251-001_en.png NOTE: The image may vary depending on the computer and modem you're using.
Connecting the Devices Together
After confirming the Internet connection through the modem, connect the modem to the Internet port of the router; connect the computer to any of the four Ethernet ports at the back of the router. For instructions, click here.
Checking the Router's LEDs
After connecting the devices together, check the lights on the front panel of the router. Ensure that the Internet light, as well as numbered light corresponding to the Ethernet port where the computer is connected, is lit. For further instructions, click here.
Setting Up a Linksys Router for Cable Internet Connection

Step 1:
Access the router's web-based setup page. For instructions, click here.

NOTE: If you are using a Mac computer to access the router's web-based setup page, click here.

Step 2:
On the Setup tab, click the MAC Address Clone sub-tab.


Step 3:
Select Enabled then click Clone My PC's MAC.


Step 4:
Click Save Settings.

Step 5:
Click the Status tab.


Step 6:
Check the Internet IP Address. If the Internet IP Address has numbers, this means the router has been properly configured. You should now be able to access the Internet. If you're still unable to access the Internet, powercycle the modem, the router and then restart the computer.


NOTE: If the IP address is still, click IP Address Release then, click IP Address Renew. If this does not change the IP Address, powercycle the modem, the router and then restart the computer.

I cannot access internet when connected to VPN.

1. Please assign an IP address to your computer using the IP Address Reservation.

a. Please open any web browser like Internet Explorer or Netscape Navigator.
b. Connect to the router by typing or in the address field and click Enter or Return key.
c. A window will prompt for a user name and password. The default username is "admin" and the default password is "password".

Note: If it does not take password as the password, you might have changed it when you have run the NETGEAR Setup CD so please try other passwords. If you cannot remember the password, you need to reset the router and run the Setup CD to reconfigure it.

d. On the setup page, please click LAN IP Setup under Advanced tab.
e. Click Add under Address Reservation then you will be brought up to a new window.
f. On the Address Reservation window, please select the radio button of the computer you wish to add.
g. If the computer you want is not on the list; click the Refresh button to update the table.
h. If the computer is still not on the Address Reservation Table; please enter the IP Address, MAC Address, and Device Name of the computer you wish to add.
i. Please click on the Add button when finished.

2. On the Set Up page of the router, select on Port Forwarding/Port Triggering under Advanced tab.
3. Click Add Custom Service and type VPN on the Service Name box.
4. Set the Service Type to TCP/UDP and input the VPN port numbers under the Start and End Port field.
5. Type in the last digit of the IP address of your computer. Then, click the Apply button.

Example: The IP address of the computer trying to establish the VPN connection is

Service Name Start Port End Port Server IP address
VPN1 47 47
VPN2 50 51
VPN3 500 500
VPN4 1723 1723
