Hi,

To confirm that your PC is connected to the router, open a browser and type 192.168.1.1; In most older LinkSys routers, the default username is none/blank and the default password is "admin." Most current Linksys routers,  the username and the password are  "admin."  Once inside the configuration page, click on "Status"; Verify that your Internet Connection has got some numbers such as IP Address, Subnet Mask, Default Gateway, DNS & MTU.

If none, your router cannot connect to the cable modem, if yes, pls post back the numbers/details. Further, pls add brand/model of your cable modem and your ISP.

In the meantime, you may have to check that all the cables are correctly plug in and that your cable modem & router are getting power from the mains.

Hope this be of some help/idea. Pls post back with additional information.  Good luck and kind regards.

Hi i bought the smc wireless router and i tries to connect it but i couldnt figure out how to connect it because i have a laptop and my internet is connected from my modem to my laptop but i cant seem to...


I'm unsure of the exact part number here but using the model number I checked the manual. This looks like it's just an access point which extends a current network you have. If you only have your laptop, this device and your internet modem it may not give you the wireless connectivity you're looking for. On a normal setup you would plug your modem into a router, plug your laptop into the router and set it up with all your DSL/Cable connection information as well as wireless on/off. You can then unplug from the router and continue life. with this one it's only connecting to an existing setup (another router or another wireless network) and extending it.
If you are looking for a solution to give you a router that connects to your modem and gives you wireless or adding multiple devices on a single connection I would recommend returning this and getting an all-in-one router such as this: http://homestore.cisco.com/en-us/Routers/Linksys-E1000-Wirelessn-router_stcVVproductId97826160VVcatId551966VVviewprod.htm?icid=linksys-specs-e1000-learnmore-btn&src2=linksys-specs-e1000-learnmore-btn

I use the same wireless G router that you have pictured. If you reset the router with the small reset button the security should be removed. If your laptop does not find the SSID which should be just LINKSYS after a reset make shure your technologys are the same. Is the wireless adapter on your laptop a G also? If you are using a N technology on your laptop it may not connect to or even see the G SSID

My Linksys WRT54G Will Not Work.


It seems that your cabling is wrong. This is what it should look like:
  1. Telephone outlet to cable modem (Via telephone cable)
  2. Cable modem to router (via Ethernet cable)
  3. router via Ethernet cable or wireless to computers
Does your setup look like this? Please let me know if not so we can configure it correctly.

With a Linksys Router is a 2wire modem needed?


Do you have internet service (Cable, DSL, etc.)? If so, a router is a great tool for keeping the bad guys out of your home network. If you don't have an internet connection, a router is very useful for connecting multiple computers together. In some cases, you may want to share resources with a neighbor (unlikely, but possible). A wireless router would be extremely useful in this scenario.

So in answer to your question, a router doesn't need a modem to operate but it does need an internet connection to get you on the internet. A router by itself does not provide internet connectivity.

run the telephone line from your modem into the wall jack. From the modem connect a network cable (cat5) into the back ( via the uplink port) of your linksys router . Your router can now route the IP from the modem.

How to change Linksys wireless router?


When you get cable internet, the cable company provides you with a modem (usually). From the cable modem you can hook up the Linksys router with an ethernet cable and it will work just fine. Hook the router up to the desktop or laptop with another ethernet cable if you need to make changes to the router security or whatever. The router address is generally 192.168.1.1. YOu can type that address right into the internet address and you router page shoud show up. If you have been using the Linksys router with the phone line all you need is to connect it to the cable modem to work. An ethernet cable is like a telephone line with a fatter connecter.

Setting Up a Wireless Network


You can still use your existing Linksys router with your cable modem. In fact the router your have is designed to work with DSL/Cable Broadband connections.

1. Make sure to properly connec the devices in your network. Modem will be connected to the Internet port of the router. Then, laptop will be connected to one of the 4 Ethernet ports of the router. For initial setup of your router with modem, you need to hardwire laptop to the router.
2. Press and hold reset at the back of the router for about 15 seconds.
3. After 15 seconds turn off the router and then turn off the modem. Wait for a minute.
4. Power on modem and wait for the lights to be ready.
5. When modem lights are on, turn on router.
6. There should be 4 lights on. Power should be steady green. Internet, WLAN and Ethernet port.
7. Checked if you have Internet connectivity on your laptop while it is wired to the router.
8. If Internet is working, disconnect laptop from wired connection to the router and check available wireless network that laptop can detect.
9. The default wireless network name that the Linksys router broadcasts is "linksys". Connect to it which is an unsecured wireless network.
10. Once you are successfully connected, check Internet.

Hope this helps!

On which port of the D-link router did you plug the WRT160N router?

Do this setup.

Disconnect the WRT160N from D-link.

Connect a computer to port 1 of the WRT160N. Access the setup page by typing 192.168.1.1 on the address bar. you may need to type in the username and password for WRT160N. on the setup page Change the LAN IP address from 192.168.1.1 to 192.168.2.1. save the settings.

Connect a cable from port 1,2,3 or 4 of the D-link router to the Internet port of the WRT160N. turn off everything then turn them on starting from cable modem>D-link >WRT160N then computer.

You should be able to access the internet.
