    Are u saying the pc has to be connected on the router in order for the laptop to be connected? Wireless router i assume. Line from modem that goes to the pc, will go to the router input ethernet. The ports available is where you plug in your various computers. remember a static IP and firewall can block ip sharing. That maybe the problem

    You need to say what you are using to attempt to connect to the wireless connection. If it is built into your PC, what PC do you have and what does the manual say is built in? If it is an add-on device, what device is it? Have you set your security settings on the router and computer to match? Have you turned on the wireless signal coming from the router?

How to connect pc to thinkland


Make sure your firewall is not blocking your ability to go to websites. I saw this the other day, somehow the users firewall was set to block all internet traffic out of the computer.
Disconnect ALL cables from the modem and routericon1.png: internet cable, power, (and ethernet). You can leave the computers on, but if this doesn't work , try it with the computers off.

Connect the modem, cableicon1.png, ethernet, and power. modem .
Connect power on router, Wait until router has a connection
then connect ethernet from modem,
then one by one connect the computer ethernet lines to the router.

I have to reset (unplug power, wait 10 secs, then plug back in) a lot to have internet access. The router is recognized and it says that I am connected, however it also says that I have no internet...


There are lots of factor why you have that kind of problem when it comes to your router. Before following the steps in this, check if your computer has a stable Internet connection when connected directly to your broadband modem. If you do not have a stable Internet connection with your modem, kindly contact your Internet Service Provider (ISP).

May I know what is the model and version of your Linksys router?

If you run into Intermittent Wired Connections Using a Router:

Step1: Enabling MTU on the Router

- Access the router's web-based setup page.

- Open a web browser such as Internet Explorer.

- Go to the Address bar and enter your router's IP address ("192.168.1.1" is the default IP of most Linksys routers) then press [Enter].
NOTE: If the IP address of the router has been changed, type the router's IP address in the Address bar instead.

- A new window will prompt for a User name and Password. Leave the User name field blank then enter your router's password ("admin" is the default password), then click OK.

- NOTE: If the password of the router has been changed, type the router's new password in the Password field instead.

Step2: When the router's web-based setup page appears, look for MTU and set it to Manual. Enter the MTU value of your Internet connection in the Size field.

1468. The size DHCP or cable providers prefer.

1400. Maximum size for DSL.


Step3: Save settings.

===================================================================

If you run into Intermittent Wireless Connections Using a Router:


Check if your wireless computers have stable connection when connected to other wireless networks.


Regular wireless disconnection can be caused by different factors such as:

> Wireless interference within the network.

> Wireless settings of the Linksys router are still set to default.

> Firmware is corrupted.
===================================================================
NOTE: If the procedure does not work, needs to update the router

No internet connection when router is connected


Make sure that your computer is able to go online through the modem.
If your computer is not able to go online through the modem then you will need to call ISP first.
If your computer is able to go online through the modem
then you need to connect the computer to the router and the modem to the router.
open the set up page of the router and change the settings of the router according to the ISP.

The issue I see is that the lights all are lighting up. I'd bet it is caused by some type of short or like a power outage or surge (remember surge protectors basically do nothing at all). If I were to guess, that's it. Other than that, I would flash the firmware back to original if it lets me.

Unable to get wireless connection at a new location


Hi...

Verizon uses PPOE(point to point protocol over ethernet) and Comast does not use PPOE. Therefore she needs to get inside the router 168.192.1.1(user:admin & pdw: admin) to disable the "PPOE". Oh and also, the router needs to be hard wired to the computer for reconfiguration to take place...hope this helps
