The network cable from your broadband or DSL modem needs to be plugged into the WAN port on the router. If the modem is connected to your provider, then the WAN light should remain on...

Without more info on your setup, this is difficult to diagnose.

Hope this helps!

I went through all the set up steps, but when i unhooked the ethernet cable from the router and my computer i could not connect to the internet. My computer is communicating with the router but the router...

You need ot make sure that the router WAN lights are on and its connecting to your ISP. You need ot have all the link and state lights on. The router will automatically connect to your ISP, unless someone has set the configuration to manual. You can try resetting to factory defaults and see what happens on the WAN side. You NEVER need to configure the WAN interface. You then need to reconfigure the LAN side.

Dear Assistants I have a router linksys compact wirless - g broadband router. model number WRT 54GC ver. 2 and i have a problem with it I cant find anywhere the WAN MAC Adress of the Linksys What to do???...

The Linksys has a device MAC address and the router issues IP addresses to the computers that are connected to it.
There is no WAN MAC address. Your ISP issues to your cable or DSL modem an unique IP address and you connect this modem into the WAN port on the Linksys router.
You enter the routers configuration address -
and login and configure the router.

Wrt54gc wirless router lights keep blinking. cannot connect via wireless router, modem is ok.

which lights keep blinking ? I would do a factory reset - button on the back - hold for at least 10secs it should then reset back to the factory condition connect the modem to the wan port
quite often the default settings may work with the modem.
post back a comment and detail the status of each light on the router also the make and model of the modem and the status of each light on the modem

Wlan lights off and now wirless access

Does your computer say Network cable unplugged?
If the wlan light is off, it means that your computer is not being detected by your router. You can try unplugging and replugging the ethernet cable at the back of the computer. Make sure that you hear a 'click' when you plug it back in to make sure tha it is properly seated. Check also the light on the wan port (desktops usually have lights..not sure about laptops though).
Do the same process with the ethernet cable but now from the other end--the one connected to the modem/router. if your modem/router have other ports on it, try to connect it to other ports as well. If you're wan light is still off, try using a different ethernet cable.
what's wrong with your wireless access? i can't read it from the title.

Need to set up router without the CD

Connect one of your computer to LAN port 1, connect the modem to port WAN section, access the configuration page, configure the router as dynamic IP address under settings, then check the IP address under status (WAN section) if you have the IP address it means that your connected.

If no wan light bypass the dlink router and check if ethernet cable connected to wan port is working. Once you are able to go online through modem connect cable to WAN if light does not go on log into oruter and clone mac address and save settings.If doesnt work powercycle router and turn modem on first then router next if doesnt work upload latest firmware.

My wireless network is no longer listed

Ok there needs to be a few diagnostics first.

Can you still connect to to router with a wired connection?

If so, can you veiw the settings for the wirless network,, and are they the same as before?

If you cant connect with a wired connection i'd probably say the router needs replacing.

Please let me know if you can connect with a wire and if you can access the wireless settings?

DGL-4300 resets every few seconds

Try the following:
1. Hook up your router like you want it to be
2. After the WAN/Wireless lights turn off we want to HARDRESET your router.
3. There will be a small hole that requires a pen or paper clip to press...Hold this down for about 15 seconds, or untill the power light flashes on your router.

This might take care of it.

let me know.

Wirless router

The cable coming from your modem must go to the port that says WAN, any of the other cables can go anywhere they fit. Other than that, I will need more information to help you.
