If this is DSL connection then you have to configure your modem before you connect router

follow this
first disabled wireless on your modem/router

.1) Turn off DHCP on your modem/router I am assuming this is verizon westell
2. Configure the first VC port to Bridge-Bridge mode
3. Keep hitting "apply" in the windows until the 7500 reboots
4. Plug the "Internet" port on the linksys to one of the normal ethernet ports on the modem /router
5. Turn on the Netgear and wait for the green Internet light to go solid

good luck if this does not work provide more info on your setup

I recently had the same problem and contacted Linksys for help. They advised that they were aware of a problem and that I needed to download a different firmware version to correct. There are instructions on their site to complete a firmware upgrade if you are having problems connecting to the internet.

LInksys wrt160n v2 wireless router not connecting to internet


Most cable companies will only allow 1 active device at a time conneceted to the cable modem. When ever you change what is connected to the cable modem you must always cycle the power/reset your cable modem.

When you are reseting the units, always rset the cable modem first, wait until it boots back up then reset the router. If that doesn't fix the poblem then it may be a configuration problem.

I forgot to ask if you are cable or DSL.

Hope this helps

Router not connecting to internet modem


This is a tuff router.  I bought it myself hoping for good things, and spent a good two days actually getting the thing to work.

I got mine to work by plugging it into the modem, the laptop I was setting it up with, etc, and then running it all. I would just suggest trying to reinstall it again with everything plugged in from the get go, and then hope for the best.... sorry I cant help more.
