Here are some troubleshooting steps that I suggest you try:

1. Check physical connections.

a. Connect the modem to the Internet port of the router. The Internet “i” LED on the front of the router should light up.
b. Connect the computer to one of the four LAN ports (i.e port 1, 2, 3 or 4) on the back of the router. The corresponding port light where you connected the computer should be lit up.

2. Access the router's web-based utility.

a. Please open any web browser like Internet Explorer or Netscape Navigator.
b. Connect to the router by typing http://routerlogin.com/basicsetting.htm or http://192.168.1.1 in the address field and click Enter or Return key.
c. A window will prompt for a user name and password. By default, the user name is "admin" and the password is "password".

Note: If you were unable to access the router's web-based utility, you may reset the router to restore the settings to factory default.

To reset the router:

a. Please push the reset button at the back of the router and release after 30 seconds.
b. Unplug the power adapter for 10 seconds and then plug it back in.

3. Configure the router.

If your Internet Service Provider is using a cable connection, please follow the steps below:

a. Click on Basic Settings under Setup tab.
b. Select No for Does Your Internet Connection Require A Login?.
c. Scroll down on the center page and look for the Router MAC Address section. Set it to Use computer MAC address and click on the Apply button.

If your Internet Service Provider is using a DSL connection, please follow the steps below:

a. Click on Basic Settings.
b. Select Yes for Does Your Internet Connection Require A Login?.
c. Select Other on the Internet Service Provider drop down box.
d. Enter your ISP's username (username@ISPdomain) and password. Then, click on Apply.

4. Configure the wireless settings.

a. Click on the Wireless Settings under Setup.
b. Change the SSID to any unique name.
c. Scroll down, look for the Security Options settings and select WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy).
d. Set the Authentication type to "Automatic" and the Encryption Strength to "64bit".
e. Leave the Passphrase field blank, select Key 1 and enter a 10-digit number.

Note: The 10-digit number you typed in the key 1 will be the password or network key for the wireless connection.

f. Click Apply button to save the changes.
g. Go to Router Status under Maintenance tab and check if there is an IP address under Internet port. If it's 0.0.0.0, do a power cycle.

5. Power cycle.

a. Power off the modem, router and computers.
b. Turn on the power of the modem first and wait for it to initialize, the lights to stop blinking.
c. Power back the router and the computers. Check if it will be able to get online.

If you have wireless computers, you can connect them wireless to the router. Kindly follow the instructions below:

6. Connect wireless computer to the router.

If you are using Windows XP with Service Pack 1, please follow the steps below:

Is it possible to connect to internet with ps2


PS2 doesn't have wireless as part of the system. You need to stick a cable into the PS2 network adapter on the back of the system. Besides, IIRC, you can't update the ARMax codelist through the PS2 internet connection anymore as the file is now too big for a normal memory card, though if yuo have one of those 3rd party high capacity memory cards you can still save the data but risk losing it when the card corrupts anyway.

Sir, try downloading the wireless driver from your laptop company's website. Or form the drivers cd/dvd they provided you. Then you can connect to any wireless capable modem/router from your laptop.

The ethernet cable provides the internet pulses into your laptop. If you remove it, your internet connection gets disconnected.

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 !!!!)

Not recognized by cable modem


Turn everything off for 2 minutes, cable modem, router and pc.

Turn on modem and wait 2 minutes for the modem to sync to TW.
Turn on router after 2 mins and wait until the router syncs with the modem.
Turn on PC
It sounds like your router lost its connection to the cable modem, which happens from time to time. TW will not help with your router. I worked for a cable co and the router and modem losing sync was the at least 70% of the calls. FYI cable doesn't use DSL,just the phone co.

My problem is, that my laptop cannot work anymore its internet connection.


Some questions before we get started: -What operating system are you running? -Are you using DSL, cable or dial-up for Internet access? -If you?re using DSL or cable are you plugging your laptop directly into the Internet provider?s box? What is the manufacturer and model of it? -Have you tested your Internet connection to make sure its working? If it?s a phone line can you dial out, if its DSL or cable try connecting another computer to it. -When you plug your Internet cable into your PC does anything appear or change on your screen? Once you give us some more information to work with we can start figuring out what is going on.
