Re: connections

YES> If you will install a router into your network, it will share the internet conenction among the two computers. Both wireless and wired. So the connection will be from

Modem ----> Router (wireless/wired capable)   ------> PCs (two Pcs both the desktop and the laptop


and you can also add up another PC if you want to.

I use AOL as my ISP, with British Telecom supplying my telephone line rental. On Friday 2nd my internet connection kept dropping out, and then eventually stopped connecting altogether. My original router...

If BT tested the phone line is OK but did AOL test the connection to the Netgear router and get the IP address of your Netgear router.
The phone connection is OK but the ADSL connection from the telephone exchange may not be working, that is why you are not getting an ADSL light.

I connect fine to it but cannot get to internet

This is not a trivial task but to start, I presume that your Wireless Router is connected to an ADSL or CABLE modem:
1) Make sure that you can connect to the Internet/Web directly from the ADSL/CABLE modem. 2) Once you have step 1 validated, connect your Wireless router to the ADSL/CABLE modem. 3) Ensure that you can communicate to the Wireless router and use Netgear supplied software - I suggest that you connect your PC/LAPTOP used for configuration directly via an ETHERNET cable attached to your router: 'NETGEAR's Smart Wizard™ makes the set-up of the RangeMax™ wireless router easy and hassle-free. Smart Wizard automatically detects your ISP's network settings, then walks you through each step of the installation proces' 4) When the installation is finish, try connecting to the internet via the ETHENET cable on your router. If it does not work, the FIREWALL on the ADSL/CABLE MODEM may be blocking the port and needs to be opened/disabled. 5) You can now concentrate in getting the WIFI working by first using an 'unsecured/no encrytion' connection by setting an appropriate SSID. 6) Once setp 5 is working, you SHOULD NOW SECURE your Wifi connection by using a selected encryption (such as WEP or better) and security key.
ps. you will get this 'limited access' message if anywhere in the device chains the IP addresses cannot be resolved.

You have a lot of different things going on here.
First, your provider is AT&T so you have ADSL service.
Comcast supplies their service over cable.
AT&T should have provided you with an ADSL modem that is connected to a phone wire. Normally another cable (ethernet, patch, RJ45, Cat5) connects the modem to the network card in your computer.
I don't know what model of router you have but there are 2 possiblities as to type. It can be a regular wireless router or it can actually be a cable modem with a built-in router.
If this is a normal router it will have a port labelled either Internet or Wan (normally, some companies do strange things), you should connect the cable from the ADSL modem to this port.
If it does not have a Internet or Wan port but has a round screw type cable connection, you have no way to connect this to the DSL modem and it will not work for you unless you switch to a cable provider. Even the it may not work because some providers check the MAC address of the unit and will not issue it an IP address unless it matches the one in their files.

Ok, lets say this is a normal wireless router. You have the phone line going to the ADSL modem and then a Cat5 cable going to the Wan port of the router, you are not out of the woods yet because most desktops do not come with wireless hardware. You need to get a Wireless PCI card and install it or if you prefer they also come in USB.

Done? Probably not. If this was a used router it was probably configured at one time and you will not be able to connect to it unless you happen to know the security key. This means you will have to reset the router back to factory default and configure it from scratch. Of course you could luck out and security was never configured for this router but you should still configure it unless you want everybody within range to be able to connect to your router and possibly your computer.

If after this long winded explaination you still want to do this, get back to me with the specific make and model of the router and what operating system you are using and we can go from there.

Hello, Good question..Phone line to DSL modem, Ethernet cable to WAN port on Router. If connecting a PC wired to Router, connect Ethernet cable from 1 of 4 LAN ports on Back of router to ethernet port on PC. This would be Physical connection...
It's always smart to set a restore point in case something goes wrong during installation of any program. For wireless connection from laptop or PC: install router software on computer. Reboot computer. In browser address bar enter This brings up a window for user name and password. Enter "admin" for both. This allows you to change many settings including Changing SSID(Router Name), User name and password. Enabling WEP or WPA security. Hope this Helps, Good Luck..!!

The ADSL, Ethernet, and USB ports are located at the back of a Linksys modem. These ports are where the phone cable and computer will be connected. The ADSL Line should be connected to the ADSL port and the computer either be connected to Ethernet or the USB port., If u r using a ethernet cable no need to run the setup cd just connect the ethernet cable and contact ur isp..
do not worry about ur sagem modem, let it be inside.. just connect ethernet cables alone..

To setup a Linksys ADSL Modem with usb cable you need to perform two steps:
  1. Connecting the Devices Together
  2. Installing the USB Driver
Connecting the Devices Together
Step 1:
Connect the phone cable to the wall jack with ADSL service and then connect the other end to the ADSL port of the modem.

Step 3:

You have to connect to the router with ethernet to get onto the configuration page. what i think what you have to do is to get a lan card and install it.
