SOURCE: configure WRT300N wireless Router to connect internet using PPPoE

Often the nets and subnets are NOT the same.. ie The Fixed connection often uses 192.168.0.1, 192.168.1.1, however sometimes the wifi is setup 10.1.1.1, or 10.0.0.1 etc, have you checked this? Esentially tho ya router is an "Acess Point" and ya Lappy etc is ya "Client" the links below has a lot of tutorials to help have a look. http://portforward.com/routers.htm http://portforward.com/guides.htm

SOURCE: hookup with Vonage device

I am going to attempt to give you a solution here. But you must understand a few things before I begin.

First, I would like to clarify that if you have Time Warner internet service, you are on Cable Internet. Not DSL. (This makes a world of difference when it comes to using a router.)

Secondly, you did not specify model numbers of your devices. Therefore I am assuming that you are using the following devices:

If this is not the correct equipment, continue to follow the instructions but be dynamic and adapt my instructions to the equipment you have. It should be similar enough that you shouldn't have any problem easily doing this.

This instruction set is going to begin from a point that is assuming that we're installing all of this equipment from the standpoint of a completely new installation. From the ground up.

Let's begin.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
UNPLUG AND POWER DOWN ALL OF YOUR EQUIPMENT INCLUDING THE CABLE MODEM, ROUTER, PC AND VONAGE BOX. Do not power on any of the devices until instructed to do so.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
1.) Connect your cable modem to the cable from the wall.

2.) Find the ethernet port on your cable modem. Connect the blue ethernet (CAT5) cable to the ethernet port.

3.) Plug the other end of the blue ethernet cable into the "Internet" port of the router. (Older routers used to also call this a "WAN" port.) It is the only port that is seperated from the rest of them.

4.) Connect another ethernet cable to port 1 of the router.

5.) Connect the other end of the ethernet cable to the network port of your PC.

6.) Connect yet another ethernet cable to port 2 of the router.

7.) Connect the other end of this ethernet cable to the ethernet port of the Vonage box.

8.) Plug in the power adapter of the cable modem. Wait 1 minute for the cable modem to acquire it's signal and set up the connection to Time Warner.

9.) Plug in the power adapter of the Linksys router. It should only take 15-20 seconds to set itself up. (If you have made any configurations to the router prior to this, I recommend pressing and holding the RESET button for at least 10 seconds to give you a fresh configuration state to start with.)

10.) Plug in the power adapter to the Linksys PAP2 VOIP Phone Adapter.

11.) Power on your PC. You should have an internet connection with it.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

You see... As I read the configuration you described, I don't think that you're using a PAP2 phone adapter. You said that you connected the "vonage device" to both your modem and your PC. This is not possible with the PAP2 adapter as it only has ONE ethernet port.

I am led to believe that you are actually using the Linksys WRTP54G which is essentially the same thing as the WRT54G, but with Vonage support built-in.

If that is the case, then you will not need to use the WRT54G router. Instead, follow the instructions that I gave you assuming that the router and the phone device are combined into one device. (The ports will still be labeled the same.)

Download the installation guide for the WRTP54G from the product page link I just gave you. You'll find the link to the User Guide on the right-side panel. This will make everything clearer for you if you do indeed have that router instead of the PAP2 phone adapter.

If you continue to be confused, please let me know. DO NOT just give me a poor rating without asking more questions. I am here to help you solve your issue. Not have my rating decreased just because someone is too confused or lazy to ask more questions.

I'm happy to help you. :)

Good luck and let me know what the outcome is. (And please be sure to list your exact model numbers in the future!)

SOURCE: Lost Ethernet and Wireless Connections in Modem

I've not used one of these 2wire boxes before, but I believe the default router's address is 192.168.0.1. Try this instead of gateway.2wire.net to see if you can gain access to the router. This is just the starting point, but see if it works.

Here's a link to, what I believe is, the router's manual.

SOURCE: my linksys wrt54g v8 will not recognize the internet

Try to do a hard reset on the router. Hold down the button on the back of the router for 10 seconds. This will clear all of the settings out of its memory. Then try to connect again. If this doesnt work power down both your router and your cable modem. Let them sit for a minute and then plug in the modem and wait 30 seconds. THen plug in the Wireless router. The issue should resolve itself.

I want to connect a Scientific-Atlanta WebSTAR 2000 series Cable Modem to a Linksys Wireless-G WRT54G wireless router but the linksys doesnt detect the modem and the computer wont let the setup program for...


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 that's registered with the ISP.
To setup 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 Devices Together
iii. Checking the Router's LEDs
iv. Configuring a Linksys Router for a Cable Internet Connection

Internet connection


I think you have the software LELA (linksys easylink advisor) installed in your computer. Sometimes if it's not updated you it will prompt that you're not connected to the internet though you have internet access.

Solutions:
1) update your LELA - go to linksys.com/download
there's a field there that says enter model/serial number - just type in LELA - then click enter
- on the next page - click on get downloads then select version 3.1
- below there's an option that says download and drivers and you can see there LELA 3.1 just click on the download link and save it in your desktop folder

note: it's quite a big file - more than 200Mb
- before you install it make sure you uninstall the old LELA in your computer
- to uninstall it - just go to add/remove programs then remove linksys easylink advisor

hope this helps... Tech what you want

Cannot connect anymore


Does the router work with the wired port connection? It's entirely possible that the router just went belly-up on you ...Linksys is an awesome brand, but sometimes it happens.

If the wired part works, the wireless transmitter inside may have gone bad. Best to just get a new one for about $50 ...but keep the old one in case you need a wired connection somewhere else around the house :)

Connection


I had the same problem with a TP-Link wireless. I made connection first with the computer hooked to the DSL modem. Brought up a browser and made sure I was on line. Then connected Modem to router and router to computer. There were pop-up messages to let me know when Cable was unplugged and when connected was made again. I then stayed connected, until the electric went off and immediately back on. So had to go through it again to reconnect. Hope this works for you. Thanks

How To Set Up PPPoE DSL Connections with a Linksys Router


This article describes how to manually configure a Linksys Router for broadband DSL that uses PPPoE (Point-to-Point Protocol over Ethernet) for authentication. For automatic configuration options, please try: 1. Linksys Easy Connect (see Answer ID 1650 for more information), or 2. The Linksys Setup Wizard CD-ROM software that came with your Linksys Router. Simply insert this CD-ROM into an online computer before connecting your Linksys Router, and the Wizard will provide step-by-step instructions on how to install and configure your router. If you are unable to set up your Linksys Router by using one of the above options, use the steps below to manually configure your router. NOTE: It is recommended that you print this article for offline reference. STEP 1: Before You Begin In order to set up your Linksys Router, be sure to first have the following: 1. A Linksys Router. 2. A DSL modem. 3. A working computer that can be wired in directly to the router for initial configuration and testing. 4. Two (2) standard Ethernet network cables. Linksys Routers come with one (1) standard network cable that you can use. 5. The PPPoE DSL username and password assigned by your Internet Service Provider. Depending on the provider, your username format might be similar to username, vzn123456, or an e-mail address (username@isp.net). If you are not sure what your username and password are, contact your Internet Service Provider for more information. STEP 2: Check Your Internet Connection Before installing your Linksys Router, it is important to first verify that you can successfully access the Internet by connecting directly to your modem (without your Linksys Router installed). 1. If you are connecting for the first time, follow the instructions provided by your provider to set up your modem and computer for online access. 2. Verify that you are able to access the Internet without any problems. If you are not able to get a connection, contact your Internet Service Provider for assistance. When you are able to access the Internet using your modem, continue to Step 3 and proceed with the installation of your Linksys Router. STEP 3: Connect the Hardware Follow these steps to connect your Linksys Router to your modem and computer. 1. Shut down your computer and unplug the power cords connected to your modem and Linksys Router if they are currently powered on. 2. Disconnect the network cable that connects to the back of your computer. 3. Connect the network cable that you just removed to the Internet port (or WAN port) located on the back of your Linksys Router. Your modem should now be connected to your Linksys Router. 4. Connect a second network cable back into your computer (into the same port that was disconnected in #2). 5. Connect the other end of the second network cable to one of the numbered ports located on the back of your Linksys Router (labeled 1, 2, 3, 4, etc.). Your computer should now be connected to your Linksys Router. The following diagram shows how your network should be connected. Verify that your connections are correct, and continue to the next step. 6. Plug the included power adapter into the router?s Power port. Then, plug the other end of the power adapter into a nearby electrical outlet to supply power to your router. 7. Turn on your computer. Do not turn on your modem at this time. Only your router and computer should be turned on for Step 4. STEP 4: Configure the Router Follow these steps to configure your Linksys Router. 1. On the computer that is connected to the Linksys Router, open a web browser such as Internet Explorer or Netscape. 2. Type http://192.168.1.1 into your browser?s Address or Location bar and click Go or press the [Enter] key on your keyboard. The IP address 192.168.1.1 is the default IP address of Linksys Routers. 3. A user name and password prompt will appear. Leave the user name field blank (empty), and type in admin (lowercase) for the password. The password admin is the default password of Linksys Routers. NOTE: The following username/password prompt screen will vary by operating system. 4. Once logged in, the router?s web-based Setup utility should load. In the section labeled Internet Connection Type, or WAN Connection Type depending on router model and firmware version, select the PPPoE option on the drop down list. Click here to view what an older Linksys router interface looks like. 5. Once PPPoE is selected, enter your PPPoE DSL username and password provided by your Internet Service Provider into the router?s User Name and Password fields. Depending on the provider, your username format might be similar to username, vzn123456, or an e-mail address (username@isp.net). If you are not sure what your username and password are, contact your Internet Service Provider for more information. NOTE: Be sure to
