Question about Linksys Computers & Internet

2 Answers

Hello, I have been trying to get my linksys wireless N Gigabit router by reseting it as well as the modem. It is showing that there is no internet connection when it is hooked up, but when the internet is hooked directly to the computer the internet works. Can someone help me to fix this problem with the router. Thanks a lot!

    Unfortunately when i tried the step by step guide you wrote me the wireless access still seems to not be working. I have also tried to use the linksys easylink advisor to try an sort this issue out but i have not had any luck there either.



    The easylink advisor states that the home connection is OK but the internet status not connected. One thing that i found strange is that the image of the router has changed and shows an older model of a linksys router with the name "gateway" above it whereas before there was an image of the same router. Thanks again for your time.

First reset the wireless completely by holding down the reset button for 30 seconds, this will restore it to factory defaults.

Now connect the modem to the wireless, on the uplink / internet / WAN / UP port that is separate from the other 4 ports that it may have.

wait 5 minutes and the wireless should configure itself automatically to give access to any wireless or wired computers that you connect to it.

Ones that is done you may want to set a password and a protection on the wireless so other people don't get on it.

Hello
Try this

1 disconnect all wires,including power from the modem and router.
2 Find reset button on router usually in the back,need a pen tip or paper clip to hold it in.
3 Hold in reset for 1 min.
4 Reconnect modem first,power up.
5 Reconnect router second, power up.

Try changing the ethernet wire from the modem to the router.

So your going to have your cable coax wire to the modem.Then a ethernet wire from the modem to the router,then a ethernet wire from the router to the computer.

Sounds like you may have one wire in the wrong place.

Not connecting to internet


You will need to reset your modem or have your internet service reset. When you have a PC connected directly to the modem the modem locks on to the NIC MAC address and will not assigin a pubilc IP address to the Linksys router until the modem is reset. I hope this helps.

As last resort you might want to use a JTAG cable and debricking programming software. If your router is brikced or you want to change the firmware this cable can do it. The cable will connect to your parallel port and your wireless router so you can repair your router. They are about $5.95.
