Re: router says i have internet but doesnt work
Step 1 Locate the reset pinhole on the back of the unit. Step 2 With the unit powered on, press and hold the Reset button. Step 3 Hold the Reset button for about 10 seconds. Step 4 Release the Reset button. Step 5 The unit will reboot. Allow 20-30 seconds before reconnecting. Step 6 The device is now at factory defaults. Note: Do not recycle power during the reset procedure. When it says hold for about 10 seconds, don't hold for more than ten seconds or the procedure will likely fail, if ten seconds doesn't work try 5 seconds. If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it. Thanks, Joe

It's sounds like you're getting your cords mixed up. The modem (the box from your company that provides internet) needs it's power cord plugged in, a phone cord or a cable cord plugged in, and an ethernet (LAN) cord plugged into it. The power cord will plug into the wall obviously, the phone cord or cable cord will be coming out of the wall obviously, but the Ethernet (LAN) cord will plug into your computer or a router. A router in your case. So the Ethernet cord from your modem (box that came from you company that provides internet) will plug into the router in the specific slot that says Internet or Modem connection. Now you need another Ethernet cord to go from your router to your computer. Try to plug the cord that goes from the router to the computer into the 4 different ports on the router until one of them works, you'll have to give it about a min to check each one. If that doesn't fix it then you need to make sure your LAN card is being read correctly and installed correctly, best way to do this is to go to Start > Control Panel > Device Manager and look at Network Adapters. If there is a Red X next to a conenction, right+click the conenction and tell it to enable, or update drivers.
1. Here is the user manual found at this site. ftp://downloads.netgear.com/files/wgr614v5_ref_manual.pdf save to hard drive >> desktop and read the "troubleshooting Tips " section page 3-8 check your router connections >> Ethernet cord to the LAN port in the back or the router to the computer. Ethernet cord to the WAN Port from the DSL port
first try to check if your wireless can actually detect a network, if it can try to remove ALLthe network that you have on your wireless network and try to add your network again, if still doest work try to uninstall and re install your wireless driver, if it still doesnt work try to restart your router, if still doesnt work try to do system restore to the point where your wireless was workin fine, lastly if still doesnt work try to contact your ISP for some configuration.
if it says limited connectivity then the port on the router for ethernet is not working
* u need to do hard reset on the router using a paper clip
* press the reset till u get a feel of a click
* then hold it down for 1 min
* then while holding unplug the powercable and plug it back
* then release the reset then try with cable connected to computer then if not working
* check with different cable if not working try with different computer
*still doesnt work then u need to replace the router as the ports on the router not working
When working with routers, CAT-5 cables are the more usual cable used. Your modem's Ethernet Port --- connect it via cable to the router's WAN input. Connect one of the router's LAN outputs to your computer's LAN input with another CAT-5 cable. Go through the appropriate Router Setup by putting http://192.168.1.1 into your Internet Explorer, with ' admin ' for User Name, and no password (just press Enter in Password frame). Once you are in to the router setup, you can select your Network Name (SSID) and then implement whatever Security you might want to use. You should be up and running by now, nhave lots of fun!
try to plug the Ethernet cord for the Host computer on another Ethernet port on the Linksys router.
have you tried replacing the Ethernet cable that's connecting the Host computer to the linksys router?
check if Host computer can get a response from a website by going to Start>Run, then type CMD on the Run box and click OK. On the black screen, type PING www.yahoo.com then press Enter.. if you get the word reply 4 times, it means the computer is connected to the Internet. If there's no response from the PING test, it means there's totally no connection.
It's also possible the problem is with the Local Area Network adapter or Ethernet adapter. Try disabling the Ethernet adapter and re-enable it by going to Start>Control Panel>Network Connections, you should see the Local Area Connection, right click on it then select Disable then Enable it again. then observe if you're still experiencing intermittent connection on the Host computer.
and if you have security software, try disabling it temporarily and check the connection again.
and let's make sure the cable or dsl modem is connected to the Internet port on the back of the Linksys router.
Once you have everything hooked up:
Ethernet cord going from modem into wireless router in port labelend internet or wan, and an ethernet cord going from the router to the xbox you should try these steps:
Unplug the power cord on the modem and plug it back in- once all the lights come back on
Unplug power cord on router and plug it back in-
if your running windows xp then you should remove any programs that you installed to run router then look into hardware manager and uninstall router and restart computer . then try once again plug in router once comp boots and let win xp load the correct drivers if this doesnt work go to windows update website and get all available updates including all hardware updated then try installing again good luck with it
