Once you have an Internet Service Provider ,ISP,
you just need a modem and phone line access,
plug modem into phone socket and then into the computer,

My example modem is.........

Speed Touch 5x6v6 - Broadband Modem
Operating System is Windows 7

log on to the modem using Internet Explorer Bar
Type 192.168.254
this will open the modems log on menu
then enter user name and password
its factory default is
user ADMIN
password ADMIN or 1234

once open there are some menu options on the main page

Speed Touch,
Broadband Connection,
Home Network,

to add new user and password,
go to toolbox,
user management,
add new user
add password,(write down username and password)
change default user
save and test
should have a green tick next to new default user now

selecting broadband ... shows both your,
dsl connection and internet connection status,
with a green tick next to each heading.

Home network will show you...
all devices connected to this modems network ie
the other computers and printers etc,
connected on your network.
In network ,select your computer in the menu tree,
select configure
this give you a menu to add info about your computer
ie name info, comupters ip address,
access to the local intranet or the internet

Now lets connect to the internet

select Broadband from front page
menu will open and display
DSL & Internet Connections
here we test internet functionality.on? or off?

Now we go to your computer,
go to start
my network connections
run wizard in my network places
select new connection
follow prompts to the end.

open internet explorer
if web page opens then we are done and finished,
open tools and internet options,
connections and then lan settings
select automatically detect
Apply then close
Test webpage again,
when ok shut down and restart,
to save the computers new settings ,
Test again with internet explorrer.

if no connections run wizard again,

Hope this Helps,Cheers Misterdj

My router keep freeze with New RCA modern DWG 855T

Make the FixYa experience better for everyone by voting.


My name is Ben and I'm your guru, i.e., mentor, an influential teacher or popular expert: a management guru. - origin from Sanskrit, 'weighty, grave', for today.

As you evaluate my advice and suggestions, there are a few things you must keep in mind:

• I did not diagnose your problem and am therefore only able to evaluate what you tell me. For example, if you ask me a fuse location, that doesn't mean that I can tell you the reason why the fuse blew.
• A thorough diagnostic approach involves the use of technical equipment, such as voltage meters. scanning equipment and other sophisticated devices.
• Lastly, fixing one problem can very easily reveal a problem with something that you might consider unrelated. If that happens, you might want to view me as being incompetent but I must rely on what you do or do not tell me.

Subject: Connecting to the Internet through a wireless router

Customer's exact description: My router keep freeze with New RCA modern DWG 855T

Discussion: I'm assuming that you are running a recent version of Microsoft Windows such as XP, Vista or 7. This will be a three (3) phase solution. It is imperative that each step be followed in order.

First Step:

Let's make certain that your operating system is ready to accept your router. Click on the following link and Microsoft will analyze your system and correct any deficiencies. Microsoft FREE Fixit Site.

Second Step:

Make certain that your router is up-to-date.

Updates are regularly posted on the manufacturer's site to fix issues you encountered while attempting to use their device. The following will guide you on how to keep your device updated and working properly.

These are the common reasons why you need to do an upgrade:

• Dropping or intermittent connection
• Fix the bugs and known issues with the current firmware or driver version
• Basic Troubleshooting did not work

NOTE: For basic troubleshooting tips in wirelessly connecting to your router, please refer to your user manual.

Firmware updates are required especially if you start experiencing connection problems within your local network. An updated firmware also fixes the bugs of its previous version as well as providing new functionalities for the device. However, this should only be done after doing some basic troubleshooting that did not work.

NOTE: Updating the router's firmware is not recommended if there are no connectivity issues.


A driver update for your adapter is necessary in order to enhance the wireless performance and functionality of your device. This is recommended especially if the adapter is not working properly after you updated the router or the computer itself. A corrupted driver will cause your adapter to stop working.

QUICK TIP: For Ethernet and wireless adapters, you need to download drivers while for devices such as routers, gateways and network access storage, you need to download the firmware. The table below will show the type of file you will download according to your device.

Third Step:

Connecting to the Internet using a Router

Choose a convenient location to begin installing your router, such as an open floor space or table. This does not need to be the permanent location of the router. For wireless routers, it may be necessary to re-position the unit after installing it as the signals may not reach all areas needed.

• Unplug the power to your Internet modem.
• Power down your computer(s).
• Plug the power in to your router.
• Connect your Internet modem to the router. The cable plugs into the router jack named "WAN" or "Internet". Turn on your Modem.
• Connect one computer to the router. Even if the router is a wireless model, connect this first computer to the router via a network cable.
• Turn on the computer.
• From the computer connected to the router, open your web browser. Enter the router's address,, and press Enter on your keyboard.
• Click Login. The router does not ship with a password, so just click Submit.

To configure the router to connect to the Internet, you must enter information provided by your Internet Service Provider (ISP) into the "Connection Type" under the "Internet WAN" heading of the router's configuration page. If using DSL Internet, you may need to enter the PPPoE username and password. Likewise, if you have been issued a static IP address by your provider, the static IP fields (including network mask and gateway) must also must be set in the router.

Since this is a wireless router, change the network name (referred to as SSID). While the router comes to you with a network name set at the factory, you may want to use something more familiar for your network. Read Changing the Router's Wireless Channel and SSID -- or some other similiar language in your user guide --for a description of this process.

Verify that this computer can connect to the Internet properly. Open a new web browser and visit a few Internet sites such as or

Finally, configure additional network security features as desired to guard your systems against Internet attackers.

That's the three step program to solve this particular problem.

If you are still having problems, follow the steps outlined in the Windows operating instructions. Unfortunately, most individuals buy computers with the software installed by the manufacturer and don't receive the full manual.

1. Open Internet Explorer
2. Click on TOOLS
5. Click on SETUP
7. Click on NEXT
9. Click on NEXT
10. Click on NEXT [this is not a typo]
12. Click on FINISH

You should now be connected.

All the best,

I am hooked up with the Internet via Buckeye Cable System. However, when I log on, I get a notice that I am connected with the Internet via ''MS Home'' and it says it is an unsecured connection. When I...

The router is a Microsoft, not the modem. I know of only one other person that owns a M$ router. A Netgear would have been my preference and a lot less trouble.

If you press the window key and R, you'll open up a RUN box that you type in CMD and press OK. It will open up another box (DOS) and you type IPCONFIG. The machine will respond with your IP address and gateway. If the gateway is something like and your IP address is 192.168.1.x where x is anything but 1, it's a good start.

Open up Internet Explorer and type in the or whatever into the address bar. It should open up the web browser for the Microsoft router. Now, did you get a set of instructions with a quick setup? Is this the MN-xxx box? You get to search the M$ website for the setup instructions if you don't have or never had them. Or, remember that $40 Netgear?

The username and password might be admin and admin or blank. That lets you set up wireless security. It should have some pretty self-explanatory help screens to give you either a WEP key or a WPA-PSK key. I'd start with WEP and a simple 10 character hex password like FACE123456. If the neighbors guess it, you can always go for better passwords or change the one you just set.

Hope this works, and think of me down the interstate from you (x187).

How to connect to net via wire and wifi

I'm assuming Windows is the OS. After disconnecting from one access method but before connecting with another (modem to wifi or network wire, etc. the IP address on the notebook will likely not be acceptable to the new connection) open a DOS or Command "Box" or "Window" (go to Start --> Run --> type the word "cmd" or "command" without quotes and then click ok. At the prompt, (without the quotes) type: "ipconfig /release" (You can see all the variables for the ipconfig command by typing "ipconfig /?")

Establish a new connection via hardwire network or wifi and allow the PC obtain a new IP address as normal. If unable to access internet sites, you can try to forcing a new IP address by opening the DOS box again and type "ipconfig /renew" This should cause the machine to get a new IP address. The "ipconfig" commands will probably not force a modem connection to get a new IP address (I haven't run modems for a long time - so I'm not familiar with their procedure of obtaining an IP address)

Red light

Check that you have all the correct drivers installed, ie....for your ethernet. Look at the back of your pc at the yellow cable, if the light inside the connection isnt flashing, then your pc isnt recognizing your router and it most likely is a driver issue. Open the management console then device manager look for network adapters/controllers if you dont see any you dont have any and this is your problem. Install the correct drivers from your manufacturers web site and this should resolve the issue.
