SOURCE: configure router

You haven't specified the version no of the router. If you would turn the router upside down, you can see the model no and the version no right next to it. Although, the configuration of all the versions would be the same, you still need to make sure it has the latest firmware if its a older version. Here is what we need to do... 1. Connect the modem to the Internet port of the router 2. Connect the desktop to the port 4 of the router 3. With the router turned on, push the reset button on the router and hold it for 20-30 seconds. 4. Power Cycle: Unplug the power from the router and the modem. Wait 30 seconds and turn on the modem first. Wait 1-2 minutes till the ligts on the modem are steady. Turn on the router. 5. Wait till the lights on the router are all turned on (takes around 1 minute) 6. On the desktop, open your web browser 7. In the address bar, type 192.168.1.1 8. It must prompt you for a username and password 9. Skip the username and type the password - 'admin' 10. That must bring up the setup page of the router 11. There is tab on the top right corner - 'Status'. Click on that 12. In the status tab, you must see the internet ip address - 192.168.1.64, which is the ip address provided by the modem 13. Go back to the setup tab 14. In the setup tab, you would see the local ip address = 192.168.1.1 15. Change it to 192.168.2.1 16. Click on Save Settings (scroll down to the lower end of the screen to see this option) 17. Wait for 30 seconds and close the web browser 18. Power Cycle again (refer step 4) 19. Now internet must work on the desktop 20. By default, the network name (SSID) of the linksys router is - 'linksys' 21. You can go to the laptop(i assume it has windows xp), and try to connect to this network by - right click on the wireless icon in the system tray (on the right bottom corner of the screen) and click on 'view available wireless networks' 22. You must see 'linksys' as one of the available wireless networks 23. Try connecting to it and you laptop must work Those steps are generalised and you might get stuck in exceptional cases. If this does not work, please initiate a chat session with any of the experts, if this does not work, because this may require some advanced troubleshooting which would not be possible using those short messages. Good Luck

SOURCE: wireless setting in LINKSYS

Use the desktop for this (the hard wired one) or hard wire the laptop to the router and follow the following steps: 1. Open the web browser 2. In the Address bar type 192.168.1.1 3. When prompted for username and password, type password - 'admin' (default password) and skip the username 4. Once you are able to see the Setup page, click on the wireles tab 5. Change the SSID to 'gunja' (for instance). Please make sure there are no spaces in the SSID and make it as short as possible (for better peformance) 6. You may also change the channel to 11 (recommended) 7. Save the settings by clicking on 'Save Settings' 8. Once you are back on the same page, click on Wireless Security tab (sub-tab under the wireless tab) 9. Change the security mode to WEP 10. You may type anything in the passphrase box and click on generate. That will generate 4 keys for you 11. You may also type a customized key in the Key 1 box (hexadecimal - between 0 to 9 and A to F) 12. Please note that the only key we need in case of WEP is the key 1 (this is the only key that will be transmitted by default) 13. Save the settings 14. Now when you would view the available networks on the laptop, you must be able to see the new SSID. Try connecting to it with the WEP key 1 15. And bang it goes - up and running Good Luck

Sonicwall keeps dropping braodband connection


Bad ADSL modem at your ISP's end?
Deteriorated twisted-pair wires from the telephone-pole to the demarcation box on the outside of your home?
Dying ADSL modem inside your home?

First, try a different ADSL modem.
Then, call your Internet Service Provider, and get them to trouble-shoot.
Finally, switch to a cable-modem provider.

Basically,when i try to access the internet using the wireless connection,the laptop tells me that connections are available .Then when i try to connect to access point,it takes some time and then tell me...


Usually the trouble shoot should fix your problem but my case using the same model, I had to turn off the wireless switch in the front and turn it back on. Then I needed a reboot. I had a Macbook on the side and had connections to the network but no internet connection was found. I later discovered it is the modem that was causing trouble to the 2 computers. So rebooting your modem by turning it off and on again should help. It did help in my case. Good luck.

AT&T Westell modem keeps dropping internet and i have to unplug power cord and reconnect to regain connection at least twice an hour


If that is a westell 6100F series, that is the problem. Westell admits they had trouble with that series staying connecting. Try finding a westell 6100G. I had the exact same problem with verizon.

Can't not connect the router to cable modem


I'm not sure if DSL modems feed signals on the same pair of wires as Cable modems, and I'm thinking that's where your problem stems from. Contact your current broadband provider (Cable?) and have them try to help your current modem/router connection. It ought to be something fairly simple, as the typical RJ45 cable is used to connect them together. (NO PHONE CABLE !!!!)

Lost my internet service


I can't really tell by the picture of the modem of what version you have an f series or g, but I can tell you this for personal experience that the westell 6100 F series is junk. I went with westell 6100 G and my works pefectly. Verizon admitts at www.dslreports.com they have trouble with the 6100 F modem. What verizon said the new firmware was to blame on the 6100 F.
I would like to add that my friend had the exact some problem, he got he G series, and it cure his.

Weird disconnection problem


How long have you had your modem? If your modem is old it could be as simple as getting a new one. Or it can be the isp faught. I would talk to your neighbors if you know anybody that has the same isp to see if they have trouble or not.
