Hi there.
If the other computer is connecting fine then the problem lies with your laptop, possible bad drivers.

This method will hard reset the wireless drivers back to default settings.

What i want you to do is right click "computer" select "manage" and then "device manager", a list will populate, then click on the + sign next to "network adapters" and right click on the wireless adapter and "uninstall" the device, reboot the PC and wait for windows to detect the wireless card and install the drivers for it, this will appear in the system tray (bottom right hand side) when its done try to connect again.

keep me informed please as a download of the drivers may be required.

Good luck

    Hi,
    After reinstalling the network drivers you may have to reset the modem by unplugging power from it for 2 minutes then plug power back in and leave it for another 2 minutes to settle down.

The internet connection in my area went down yesterday, but i didn't know this and thought the reason i couldn't access internet was a problem with my linksys wrt54g router. So i unplugged and...


The first thing you should do is a proper 'powercycle' for all of your internet equipment.

To do this:

1) Unplug the power to your modem and your router, and power off your computer.
2) Wait a full minute.
3) Plug the power back in to JUST the modem.
4) Wait some more - for the modem to fully connect to your ISP, and the lights to indicate. If you're not sure, just wait about 2-3 minutes.
5) Plug the power back into the router.
6) Wait another minute or two for the router to finish connecting.
7) Then turn the computer back on.

You can bypass the computer turning on and off if you can repair your wireless connection.

If this doesn't work, there is a pinhole sized reset button on the router itself that you will need a toothpick or somesuch to press - press and hold the button for 5 seconds, and then try the steps above again. If you do this, the network id and password will be reset to the default, just like it was when you bought it.

Only 2 lights coming on and can't get on the internet.


It depends on what two lights. Could mean a variety of different things. 2 lights tends to mean your box is receiving a signal and usually has internet access. which would lead me to believe either your router/Nic or Ethernet cable is bad or miss configured. Can also mean water or some foreign debris has gotten into a connection on the way to the cable box/a main line is bad. With ought knowing which two lights its almost impossible to narrow down though. Your best best would be to call Mediacom's Tech line and see if they can ping your modem if they can see it then its more then likely a problem on your set up.

There's no place on modem to hook router


Look for Ethernet jacks. You want to hook both your computer and your daughter's laptop to the router to out ports i.e. usually on the front side. The back side of router would hook using probably another Ethernet jack to your modem.

I use the RCA model 425 modem through Media Com. My wiring for internet enters a bedroom. Now I also want to hook up a tv using this modem. A Media Com employee suggested using a splitter. Will this work...


Theoretically you can because the purpose your cable serves is a conduit for data transmissions. Just a few cautions here. Just as in any circuit, the more the wire is spliced,split, or anything that taps into it on its way . to the modem will add resistance to the line, thus it could degrade or "slow down" your signal. There is a splitter I know mediacom haves that will help with lessening this effect.

My internet exployer windows will not reconize my wireless router. I changed from Knology to Mediacom cable. Before I changed I was able to go wireless. I called Mediacom and I was told to contact Netgear....


Hey Sheila,

Follow the below steps to reconfigure the router:

CONNECTIONS:

1. Connect a Ethernet cable from the modem to the WAN port of the router (isolated port).
2. Connect the computer to the router using any one of the 4 available ports. Please make sure that there is no direct connection between the modem and the computer (either using Ethernet cable or USB cable).
3. Power off the modem and the router after making the connections.
4. Power on the modem and wait for the lights, then power on the router.

RECONFIGURE:

1. Open the browser (Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox or Safari).
2. Access the router, usually with http://192.168.1.1 or http://www.routerlogin.com.
3. Login to the router with the Username as "admin" and Password as "password" (please note that the Username and Password are case sensitive).
4. Click on 'Basic settings' from the left menu and select 'Use Computers MAC Address' from 'router MAC Address' section.
5. Click Apply.
6. Once it updates the settings then power off the modem and the router. Power on the modem and wait for the lights, then power on the router.
Hope this helps.

Arris Modem connected to Mediacom Service


I didn't have incoming calls for a year (didn't mind, no telemarketers). But I fixed today.

Check with your home alarm company. Turns out they can download a signal. No, it wasn't the computer's internal modem, it wasn't the phone/cable company or the arris modem.

No need for service call.

I have mediacom cable, phone, and internet service. The internet works when I am directly connected to the modem provided by mediacom but I can't get linksys to work.


You need to call your internet serie and give them the Routing Number specific to your Linksys modem. Let me know if this helps.
