You may need to reset the router (your son's computer may have a virus or spyware, run the anti-virus program on it)
At the back of the Linksys Router you will find a reset button press and hold it for about 30 sec. (Make sure you are holding the button properly.),
it will reset all the settings of the router.
After that reboot the router, connect your computer with port no. 1, and then try to open 192.168.1.1 from the Internet explorer of your computer.
It will give you a message "The server at 192.168.1.1, WRT54GS require a USER NAME and Password.”
Now type "admin" in the password and it will take you to the LINKSYS ROUTER SETUP


Hooking up an Xbox with Linksys routers:

Open an Internet Explorer browser page.In the address bar type - 192.168.1.1
Leave username blank & in password use admin in lower case...

Click on "Applications and Gaming" tab and then click on "Port Range Forwarding" sub tab...

1) On the first line in Application box type in ABC, in the start box type in 88 and End box type in 88, leave the protocol as both and under ip address type in 192.168.1.20 and check the enable box...

2) On the second line in Application box type in PQR, in the start box type in 3074 and End box type in 3074, leave the protocol as both and under ip address type in 192.168.1.20 and check the enable box...

3) On the third line in Application box type in XYZ, in the start box type in 53 and End box type in 53, leave the protocol as both and under ip address type in 192.168.1.20 and check the enable box and click on Save Settings...

3) Once you return to the set up page click on the Security tab and uncheck Block Anonymous Internet Requests and click on Save Settings...

4) Click on set-up and change the MTU Size to 1452 and click Save Settings...

5) Goto the XBox Network Settings and IP Address Settings and select manual IP Settings and assign the following on your Xbox

IP Address :- 192.168.1.20, Subnet Mask :- 255.255.255.0, Default Gateway :- 192.168.1.1...

6) Also assign the DNS Addresses on the Xbox

Primary dns :- 4.2.2.2...Secondary dns :- 192.168.1.1

7) Turn off your modem, router, and Xbox...Wait for a minute...

8) Plug the modem power first, wait for another minute and plug the router power cable, wait another minute and turn on the Xbox and test it...it will connect...



If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

Troubleshooting DSL Modems


Ever look at your DSL Modem and wonder what all those lights mean? Why do some flash, while others remain solid? What if your lights are different colors? How do you tell if your DSL Modem is working correctly?<br /> <br /> Each light on your DSL Modem represents a function. The light is an indication of whether that function is working properly. Sometimes the placement and title of each function can vary by modem manufacturer, but they are pretty standard in interpetation. If you look closely your modem, you might find that each function is labeled in small print to help identify them.<br /> <br /> A standard DSL Modem has a light for power, internet, ethernet, link and wireless connection. A healthy DSL Modem will have a steady green light that does not blink or flutter for all features other than internet, ethernet and wireless. A flashing or fluttering light indicates movement and useage. When you are connected to your DSL Modem wireless, the light for this feature will blink indicating a connection and/or active useage. If the internet connection is working properly the color of the light will be green. If the connection is working but experincing a problem the light can turn to yellow or orange. If the connection fails, the light on the DSL Modem can be red or absent depending on the problem causing the trouble. If your service is turned off by the provider, more than likely the light will be "off".<br /> <br /> If your lights turn a different color, are absent or your internet connection fails try power cycling your modem before reporting the trouble to your provider. Power cycling helps the DSL Modem to reset its connection and repair your internet services.<br /> <br /> If you are using a DSL Modem alone to connect to the internet (no additional router) you can power cycle it by first turning off your computer and then unplug the modem itself from the power source at the wall. Wait for 1 to 2 minutes and then plug it back into the power source and wait for the warm up to finish before rebooting the pc.<br /> <br /> The DSL Modem should go through the normal warm up procedures of blinking lights, making them all stable and solid green ect. You will know when its finished warming up when the features are set at solid green (other than eithernet, internet and wireless connection as explained above). When the modem finished the warm up, reboot your computer and check your internet connection.<br /> <br /> Power cycling your DSL Modem can help keep your connection healthy and running at optimal speeds.<br />

2wire2701hg-b lights: power-on, ethernet-off, wireless-blink steady, dsl-on, internet-on, dsl line ok


If ethernet light is the only one that's not on, that means there is no device that is connected hardwired to the router.

Wireless not working There is no blinking light Why


Usually when there is no blinking light, it means that it has no power or has no internet connection.
To resolve, see if the device has power, and check that it is turned on If it has power and is turned on, check the Ethernet (giant telephone cable). See if you can get Internet on a laptop if you plug the Ethernet into the laptop.
If you can not get the internet from the ethernet cable there is a problem with another device along the line.
Good luck!

How can i reset my Belkin Wireless G Plus MIMO Router it cannot connect for an internet connection


  • Locate the small master-reset pinhole on the back of the router. The pinhole is located directly to the right of the Ethernet port labeled "connection to modem."

  • 3

    Soft-reset the router by placing a sharp object, like a push pin, into the router hole. Push inward and immediately release the button. The lights on the router will flash and then the "Power/Ready" light will start to blink. When the light turns solid, the router is reset and ready to use. This reset does not restore the router to factory settings. It refreshes the software and is similar to rebooting a computer. If you want to restore the router to the factory settings, skip this step and move to step four.

  • 4

    Master-reset the router by placing a sharp object, like a pushpin into the router hole. Keep the pin pushed into the hole for 10 seconds. The lights on the router will flash and then the power/ready light will start to blink. When the light turns solid, the router is reset and ready to use.

    How many lights should be on my westell model327w?


    b2f0922.jpg
    The Westell has several lights on the front that have various meanings

    Power = When lit, this light indicates there's power to the router. It should be solid green.

    Ethernet = When lit, this light indicates that the modem is communicating with your computer. This will be on only if you're using the Ethernet cable to connect the modem to your computer

    Wireless = When lit, this light indicates that the wireless function of the Actiontec is working. This will only be lit if you're using the wireless function.

    DSL = When lit, this light indicates the modem is speaking to the central office (phone company). When working, the light should be solid green.

    Internet = When blinking, this light indicates that you're receiving information i.e., you're able to browse from site to site. This light will be blinking as you're receiving information.

    Power Light Is Red, Internet Light Is Green, Other Lights Off


    Check cable connections.

    Try unplugging router from power for five minutes.

    If that does not work call Internet Service provider to check if there is a problem with their server.

    My ethernet keeps on blinking and the wireless has no light,


    If the wireless light does not come on at all,
    on the working computer, type (gateway.2wire.net) in internet explorer, on the top, click on "Home Network".
    on the right under "Status at a Glance", make sure the "Disable" button is showing besides "Wireless", but dont click it.
    But If yours says "Enable", click on it.

    If that does not work, make sure that you are connecting to the right network. the name will be shown in the same section as above. The password is on the bottom of the modem/router on the sticker.
