The XP is telling you it cannot see an internet connection.

Check the settings on the modem with your supplier and the XP set up.

SOURCE: Problem with Local area connection

In general the Wan port of the router gets connected to the ADSL modem where the computer used to connect and the computer connects to the switch portion of the router which often has 4 ports. The router has configuration options that must be set to comply with your internet service providers (ISPs) requirements. These can often be found on his support web site. If you can provide the link to the website I can assist with the search. Otherwise I will need the name of the ISP. If this ISP is cable related like Road Runner I will need the associated cable provider. I will also may need to know the country, city and state in which you are located as some ISPs have geographic differences in equipment. Depending on what that information determines I may also need to know the Manufacturer and Model of the DSL Modem -- probably the box your computer plugs into when it is working. It would also be helpful to know if you got the router used or new. Used routers may have been configured by their previous owner and require additional changes to new routers with factory default settings.

Lastly as a wild guess. There are some ISPs that extract address information (MAC Address) from the attached network card into the units they send you to attach to the phone line or cable. Should you happen to be with such a company they often state turn on the modem before the router so it recognizes the change. You may want to try turning off the modem attaching the router without power then turning on the modem wait a minute and power on the router -- if your ISP requires default settings for your router and it was new this may work. As far as the alarm for unplugged cables -- do the cables have the clip portion on the ends and are they securely established in the ports. Are the contact points on the cables free of dust and dirt? Especially if the router is used have you tried a different port for the computer side connection? In case of the computer end have you tried multiple computers -- possibly a friend's if you do not have more than one.

There is a strong likelyhood this simple solution will not work. All of the above information may lead to the determination that we must enter a static IP address into the router, maybe we need to provide for PPPoE login for the router, maybe we need to configure the switch to allow the router to perform the PPPoE login, and several other such items. This is probably not a one reply solution.

SOURCE: wireless router to modem problems

Since it says network cable unplugged on the computer when wired to the router, you need to check these first:

â Make sure that the Ethernet cable is connected from the modem to the router’s Internet (WAN) port and the computer to the numbered port of the router. The computer should used to be connecting to the Ethernet port of the modem, if not; you should contact your ISP first.
â Make sure that the Ethernet adapter/LAN card on your computer is working properly. You can check that on the device manager of your computer.
â If those are all working fine that would mean the router is not yet configured for Internet access or we can say that the settings for the provider are not synchronized with the router.

To configure the router, you can do these general steps:

1. Connect the computer to the numbered port of the router and the modem to the router’s Internet (WAN) port.
2. Turn off the computer, router and modem.
3. Turn on the modem first, wait for the lights to stabilize then turn on the router. As soon as the lights are stabilized, you can turn on the computer and check for internet connection.

However, if the Internet connection still does not work. That means there are additional settings needed to be done. You can message me about the name of your ISP and I will provide you the specific steps you need.

SOURCE: desktop and two laptops won't work with modem & router now

Probably you used the wrong type of ethernet cable, a crossover one. Try another Ethernet cable but this time a straight one.

SOURCE: had a power outage and now router not sending

Most of the time, routers and modem stops working when it sense a power outage. This is the defense mechanism of these devices to avoid from being damaged.

Turn off the computer, router and modem. Leave them off for 15 minutes. Then turn the modem back on first, wait for 30 seconds.

Then turn on the router, wait for another 30 seconds. After that turn the computer ON.

This would power cycle the router. If same problem occurs, contact the router manufacturer.

Have a great day!

SOURCE: Linksys wrt54g SRX200. I can connect to my router

It appears the connection between the Linksys and the modem is not working.
Try a different LAN cable.
Check the LAN cable from the modem to the Linksys, it should be connected to the WAN/Internet port on the Linksys.

I have to turn the modem off and back on every time i get on my computer to get it to connect to my dlink router. how can i solve this


If it is wired through the LAN ethernet connection directly to your computer it is cause by unplugging the ethernet. Routers and modems hate a ethernet cable unplugged and will stop communicating if unplugged. You will have to reset almost every time. When reset the router goes out and looks at what is connected and then handshakes with it. If it is a wireless issue you can reset your wireless setting in your control panel. This shouldnt happen as your wireless network should always be broadcasting. Generally, to connect back to a router you only need to unplug the router to re-establish the connection to the modem. Going all wireless is the only way to fix this

Wireless configuration


What you will need: Wireless router and a wireless adapter connected to your PC. This is assuming you have a broadband internet connection. Install the wireless router by taking the ethernet cable out of the back of your computer and placing it in the WAN or internet port in the back of your router. Install the wireless adapter inside your PC. Unplug your modem for a minute or so. Then plug in your modem and your router, then turn on your PC. If you are running XP, it should see a list of wireless access points you can access. Select the one for your router (should be the strongest) and hit connect. This will connect you to the wireless router and the internet. Note this solution assumes the following: You have a high speed internet connection, your ISP's modem is connected to your computer via an ethernet cable, and you are running windows XP.
