Question about Linksys EtherFast EZXS55W 5x10/100 Mbps Networking Switch

1 Answer

Linksys switch question

My DSL modem currently is wired to a linksys WRT54GS wireless broadband router. From here I have a hard wire going thru the walls to my TV where my XBOX 360 is. I recently purchased a Wii and upgraded my satelite box to a HD-DVR with DirecTv onDemand. This feature also requires an ethernet cord. The question is, at the end of the hard wire over to the tv where I have my XBOX, can I put a linksys EZXS55W switch? Then from that point run an ethernet cord to the xbox, the wii, and the directv box?

You certainly can. In a real network you have one router and x amount of switches or hubs. Because whats going to happen is your equipment will automatically will ask the switch which will bounce to the router and your router will issue the address to that device.

HOW DO I CONNECT DSL LINE TO LINKSYS WRT54GS


The WRT54GS does not have a jack to connect a phone/DSL line to, so in order to use this router with a DSL connection, you'd have to connect the DSL line to a modem and then connect the modem to the router, or connect the DSL line to a computer if you have an internal modem, and then connect that computer to the router.

Switched from DSL modem to Cable modem. Linksys


If you had your linksys router controlling the DSL connection, it was most likely a PPPoe connection requiring a username and password. Most cable companies have dynamic IP address and do not require a username or password.

Open your internet browser, IE, Firefox etc and go to 192.168.1.1 >
Enter your router username and password, typically admin and admin

In the setup tab, change your connection FROM whatever is listed there and make sure it is Autumatic DHCP Save your settings, and restart the router.

You should be fine.

Connection


Hi Susie
With related to your particular issue it seems like that your broadband modem is not configured for the router. There are basically 2 types of connection. DSL and Cable modem. Verizon, ATT are DSL and comcast other providers give you a normal cable broadband connection. If its comcast make sure the cable from the comcast modem is going to the internet port in the linksys router and also make sure that there is a system connection the linksys router and the cable from the system goes to any of LAN 1, 2, 3 and 4 ports. Then reset your cable modem by using a pin and inserting to the reset hole in the modem. You could use the same step to reset your linksys router as well .If its a verizon or dsl connection you need to put normally your username and password in the router page. here is the link to how to configure linksys for your internet modem.
Here is a video as well on it?

I have linksies router and 2 wire modem will they work together?


If the Modem has an ethernet port (looks like a large phone plug like the ones on the router) connect an ethernet cable from it to the "internet/wan" port on the router. If it doesn't there isn't much you can do.

I have a DSL router provided by frontier. I am trying to make my desktop wireless. I believe that my DSL router functions as a modem also. I purchased a Linksys wireless broadband router. I can't not...


Your router should just be that, a router. Your connection is probably like fibernet the modem is actually on the outside of the house. This may help or may not but I have a linksys wired router that works very well but you have to go to their website in order to set up the router. You may need to look through your papers and find the web address to connect to the right site.

Linksys Wireless-G (WRT54GS (EU/LA/UK))


I have had that issue quite often and found that when you are using a router with DSL, the DSL modem and Router IP has a conflict because they are the same number. I suggest looking into a D-Link wireless router for use with DSL.
