Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I have an older 4 port linksys router. I recently upgraded to Explorer 8. Now neither computer can get to the Internet when using the router. They can connect if I go from modem to each PC separately. Each computer can print through the router. Each computer can "see"the other one.

How to Upgrade Firmware of Linksys routers........


As the application requires certain ports to be opened on the router,try to follow the steps below to configure the router. Since you are connecting behind the router, you are going behind a NAT firewall.Therefore, you would need to allow ports for the remote access application to go through the firewall. You would need to know what port number application uses. You can check with the program manufacturer for the information, or see the Help menu.


For routers with old firmware versions (without the Cisco web interface):


1.Open Internet Explorer.
2.After "Internet Explorer" opens, please typehttp://192.168.1.1 into the "Address Bar" and click GO.
3.The "Enter Network Password" window will appear. Skip username and type admin (admin is the default password) as the password,and click OK.
4.You will need to click on the Advanced tab to the very right. Once the "Filters" area appears, please click on the Forwarding tab.
5.Once the "Forwarding" area appears, click the Port Triggering button. Once you've done this, a new window will appear.Enter the ports needed to be opened > Click Apply


For later firmware (that has the Cisco web interface)


1.Open Internet Explorer.
2.After "Internet Explorer" opens, please typehttp://192.168.1.1 into the "Address Bar" and click GO.
3.The "Enter Network Password" window will appear. Skip username and type admin (admin is the default password) as the password,and click OK.
4.Click on "Applications and Gaming" then click on the "Port Triggering" Sub tab. Enter the ports needed to be opened >Click Save Settings.


Example:

Customized Trigger Port Range Incoming Port Range
Application From ~ To From ~To
WARCRAFT 6112-6112 6112-6112
WARCRAFT 6113-6119 6113-6119

Hope this help everyone that has problem with the game.

I have RV082 Router , and Diag Led is constant what to do


Checking the Router's LEDs

The Linksys router's front panel will indicate the status of the connection. After connecting the broadband modem to the WAN or Internet port, the computer to an available numbered port and powering on the router check the lights on the front panel of the router.

The Linksys router's front panel will indicate the status of the connection. After connecting the broadband modem to the WAN or Internet port, the computer to an available numbered port and powering on the router, the following should be lit:
  • 1 - 8 (LAN)
  • DMZ/Internet (WAN2)
  • Internet (WAN1)
  • Diag
  • System
kb16591-001_en.jpg

Checking the Router's LEDs
Step 1:
Make sure the System LED is lit.

NOTE: If the Diag LED doesn't goes off, you need to upgrade the router's firmware. For instructions, click here .

Step 2:
Make sure the LAN 1-8 ports is lit depending on the computers connected to the designated Ethernet port.

NOTE: If the LAN 1-8 port is not lit, make sure that the computer is powered on. You can also try connecting the PC using another working cable.

Step 3:
Make sure the Internet (WAN1) and DMZ/Internet (WAN2) LED is lit.
NOTE: If the Internet or DMZ/Internet LED is not lit make sure the Broadband modem is powered on and that the modem is properly connected to the Ethernet port







You can access the web-based user interface utility of the RV082 by using one of two methods:

  • Through the RV082 IP address (192.168.1.1 by default), or
  • Through its default hostname ("RV082")

1. Open a web browser (Internet Explorer or Netscape Navigator)

· By IP address: Type http://192.168.1.1 (192.168.1.1 is the default IP address of the RV082)

and click Go or press the [Enter] key.

· By Hostname: Type http://RV082 and click Go or press the [Enter] key.

2. When the username and password prompt appears, type admin in both the username and password fields. (admin is both the default username and default password for the RV082).

I lost the instructions on how to install a Linksys wireless router. I would like to down load these instructions.


cable setup

This guide is recommended for Cable Internet Service in the USA like Charter, Cox, Comcast, Cable Vision, etc.
  1. First you need to connect the device together. You need to connect your cable modem to the internet port on the back of the router, and the computer should go to one of the 4-port on the router labeled Ethernet (1, 2, 3, 4).
  2. Then turn on the modem first, wait for the lights to stabilize before powering on the Linksys router. Lights that you should have on the router are Power (solid green), Wireless/WLAN (Green sometimes flashing), One of the no. lights where the computer is plugged in (flashing), And the internet light (flashing).
After doing this step there are times that this will already get you online. If the internet will not work, you continue following the steps 3.

3. If the internet is still not working; we will need to adjust a setting on the router setup page. To access the setup page of the router you need to open your internet explorer or Firefox on the computer that is hardwired directly to the router. In the address bar of your browser (Internet Explorer or Firefox) type http://192.168.1.1/ and hit enter or click Go. It will ask you for a username and password. Just type "admin" for the password field and there is no username. If you have ran the setup CD prior to this, then use the password that you have set when were running the setup CD.
4. Once you are in the setup page of your router make sure that the Internet Connection Type is set to Automatic Configuration DHCP, then click the save the settings button at the bottom of the page. After saving the settings, click the sub tab at the very top of the page that says MAC Address Clone. Set it to enable and click the button that will say Clone or Clone your PC's MAC and save the settings again.

5. After doing step 4, do a power cycle. Power cycle is done by turning of the router, modem and computer. Leave them off for a minute, tuned them back on in this order. Modem first wait for the lights to stabilize, then the router wait until the power light become solid. Then turn on the computer. This will get you online through the router.
