I can not connect to the Internet. I have WiFi connection but can't do anything else


Plug your computer/laptop directly into router. Can you get to the Internet then?
If you CANNOT get to the internet when your computer is plugged into the router, reboot your router. If it doesn't have a power switch, unplug it. Leave it unplugged. Next, you need to figure out if you have another modem for DSL or Cable. If you do have another DSL or Cable modem, unplug that device to. After 5 minutes has elapsed for both devices being unpowered, plug in the DSL or Cable modem to the power source. Keep the router unplugged from power. After your DSL or Cable modem has powered up for 5 minutes, plug your router into the power source. Wait a few minutes. Reboot your computer/laptop. Try the wireless connection again.
If you CAN get to the internet when your computer is plugged into the router. Reboot your computer. Try to connect again. If you cannot connect after rebooting, make sure you are connecting to YOUR OWN wireless access point and not someone else's.
Do you have other computers/laptops/wifi devices that CAN/CANNOT connect to your wireless / access the Internet?

My wife yanked the phone line from the wall and thats when my 2 wire DSL gateway model 2701HG-B modem quit working i plugged into other parts of the house But i just keeps blinking red like its still...


Hello.

Try to unplug power on back of your modem. Let the phone line plugged in. Wait 10 seconds and plug the power back.

Wait about 1 minute and try it with your computer. This procedure will reconnect using a new IP address on your internet service provider.

It should work if you don't have a router. If you have a router attached to your modem, unplug power on both then plug your modem first and wait 1 min. Then plug back your router and wait 1 min. Try your internet connection after doing it. If you still don't have connection, try to restart your computer.

Hope this helps!

My router is not getting the wireless signal it says no wireless what do i do to fix this


Are all computers connected to the router affected?
If so, try this first:

  1. Unplug the power to the cable / DSL modem
  2. Connect the power to the router.
  3. Connect a computer to one of the LAN ports of the router.
  4. Restart your computer.
  5. Restore the router to factory defaults. Note: This will remove all previously configured settings.
  6. Once the router has gone through the restore it will then begin the reboot. When the reboot completes plug the power back into your modem.

This addresses a common scenario where the router has been connected to the Internet for an extended period and holds an IP address (DHCP lease) for a longer period of time than your Internet Service Provider (ISP) allows.

This is normal and does not indicate any issue with your Belkin router or ISP.

If the router is located where you cannot easily unplug it, you can restart it using the router's web-based interface. If your DHCP lease time seems to be extremely short, contact your ISP to see if there are other issues on the network.

In certain network scenarios, it may be helpful to turn off all the equipment on your network, and then turn it all back on. Leaving some devices unplugged for up to five minutes can also help. Try unplugging the router, any switches, and any cable or DSL modems. Shut down connected computers. Plug in the cable or DSL modem first.

Plug in the Belkin router second, and wait for the lights to cycle through the startup routine. This prevents another device from taking the DHCP lease. Lastly, start up your computer.

No internet


Power down your modem and router by unplugging them. Wait 30 seconds. Plug your modem back in and let it cycle through. Wait until it's fully connected. Plug the router in and let it cycle through. That should fix your problem.

Belkin F5D8236-4 Wireless Router will not connect to pannaway dsl modem with same settings as router I am replacing. Dynamic IP address setup. Modem light continously blinks orange. No internet light.


1) With direct connect with modem, check the IP address and default gateway.
(I came across such a modem, it gave default gateway as 192.168.1.254)
I also had the doubt of configuring as a dynamic connection
But it won't work!
Contact your ISP to completely bridge the modem and configure the dsl modem as PPPoE connection with correct username and password.
Finally connect the modem to router and do a complete network power cycle, i.e.: Unplug power from router 1st, then power from modem, unplug the telephone line and now do the exact reverse process... Plug back the tel. cable, then power to modem... now WAIT for lights on modem to come back, then plug in the power to router. This will surely work.

5 wait until the modem boots up (all lights except activity should be on)
6 power up your router.

Did that work?

The internet connection keeps disappearing.


Change the router's IP address to (192.168.10.1) maybe you have an IP conflict between the modem and router.

USING LINKYS ROUTER/INTERNET NOT FOUND


Can you be a little more specific. What do you mean by "INTERNET PLUG IN"? Are you referring to the cable connecting your laptop to the router? The router to the modem? Or the modem to the internet (cable or DSL)?

What operating system?

Belkin router


I just worked on one of these today. Try this and see if it helps.

1. Unplug your cable or DSL modem and your wireless router

2. Plug back in the cable or DSL modem and wait for the internet to successfully connect (watch the lights).

3. Plug the wireless router back in again and wait for it to connect (again, watching the lights)


If this doesn't work, make sure you have the equipment plugged-in in the right order.

cable or dsl signal goes to modem ==> modem plugs into wireless router ===> computer plugs into wireless router.
