SOURCE: Cannot connect with ATT modem

Connect your pc to the ATT box. If online, check the ip address of the computer. If the ip address is 192.168.1.x, then you just have to change the router ip address. The wrt54g ip is 192.168.1.1, it may be having conflict with the ATT modem. Change the wrt54g ip to 192.168.2.1

Good Luck

SOURCE: setting up linksys wireless router with motorola 2210 dsl modem

One thing that isn't mentioned anywhere is the modem has to be in bridge mode. I was told this by a Linksys tech after doing all that was documented in the references article. I contacted my internet provider and they told me how to set the modem to bridge mode. This corrected the PPPoE error.

SOURCE: setting up linksys wireless router with motorola 2210 dsl modem

Reset the DSL Modem and make sure the modem is setup for your DSL account information. You might have to call up your ISP for that information to be added. If that was done prior then the Router has to have the same information user name @ your ISP.net or .com and password. for PPOE. Make sure the router has it MTU set to 1492 for DSL.

1. unplug the modem
2. unplug the router
3. between both of them wait 30 seconds
4. all PCs should not be on
5. plug in back the modem
6. plug in back the router
7. Turn one one PC
8. login to the router and make sure it connects to the internet

Since your using Gig Router make sure that the WAN is to 10 if you have 6Mbps plan 15 to 30mbp plan go to 100 for WAN.

If you're still having issues, then you need 3rd level service tech from your ISP to check the DSL back at the office side to see how that's connecting to your modem. If that checks out okay, then have line tech come out and check the DSL going into the house. If that checks out good then it could be the a problem with the new router you have there you have updated the firmware for it yet?

If you have then the modem could be the problem. These are the steps you need to take to trouble shoot the problem. Check all connections make sure they're plugged in correctly. Make sure all DSL filters are working correctly one bad filter can throw the DSL off. Check each phone connected to a filter to see if its clear.

Can't access internet, says I am connected but then says no internet connection


I think you should try to reset and reconfigure the Linksys router and see if that works.

If your Linksys router is old then you can also upgrade firmware on the router.

Connect your computer directly to the modem and make sure that you can access Internet directly through the modem.

Connect the modem and computer to the router. Open the setup page of the router and change the settings manually.

Try this website to setup your Linksys router manually.

I can also suggest you a Fiverr Gig where you can pay only $5 and get support for your Linksys router.

I just got xfinity cable internet that is connected through a linksys wireless g router and a arris cable modem. when i do a speed test at 2wire.com, my speed is only 2.7 Mbps. I believe it should be 16....


To correctly check James, I would connect a computer directly to the modem, and test at speedtest.net. If that DL speed is fine, then I would connect the router, and plug a computer directly into the router and test again. If that number is fine, then you can narrow your issue down to WiFi speed only. All of the ports on the back of that router should be at least 100 Mbps ports. So that should not be the bottleneck. If your speed directly attached to the modem is slower than you expected, I would contact your carrier.

I have a WCG200 linksys but can not go onto internet.


from what i have read, your router is broadcasting a signal, and your modem has an open and active internet gateway.

pls make sure that the connection from the modem to the router are correct. the modem should be connected in the port with the label internet. you may have to reset your modem AFTER you have connected the wireless router to allow the router to be assigned an ip. now with the wireless router and broadband modem connected, you can connect to the network and access the internet. pls repost if you hit any snags
GOOD LUCK and PLS rate this post.

Linksys WRT54G wireless router not compatible with Aztech modem?


Darvin, gotta love your ISP. Never fear......

if it isn't too much of a problem (knowing you have wireless setup done already), then do a factory reset on your router ** remember to copy the WEP Key if you have, or recall the PASS PHRASE so you won't have to reset all wireless devices ** Reset is located on back, you need a ball point pen to reach the reset switch.

Reset process: unplug, take ballpoint pen & insert into reset switch & plug unit back in. Sometimes tricky, but you should notice green light goes to yellow/orange upon resetting.

RESET or NOT - you want the Linksys set for ::

Connection Type - AUTOMATIC (for automatic discovery)
Router IP Address - 192.168.2.1

DCHP - ON, Addresses - 192.168.2.100 and allow 5-50 users
(for security, assign the number of DESKTOP + WIRELESS expected users +1, this way you don't get overrun without knowlege)

Take the cable from Aztech ETHERNET OUT to WAN on Linksys. (usually BLUE) (??) not 100% sure as I have the little silver pocket edition of the same Router. - power cycle (turn both DSL modem & Linksys off for 20 seconds. turn on DSL Modem, wait till it's about as ready as possible, turn on Linksys, should only take 20-30 seconds to power up & recognize.

VERIFY SETTINGS: access router - 192.168.2.1, goto STATUS. you should see IP Addressing, SubNet, DNS1 & DNS2 settings. If you do not, then you have no internet connection.

ALTERNATIVE,

Setup Linksys Router with COnnection Type: PPoE, you will need your ISP assigned ID & Password. Follow all other instructions properly.

If you still have problems, please contact me at 906-495-1707 or via Yahoo IM junodr@yahoo.com or through this website.
