Your computer sees its connection to the gateway - that's your "connected" - without being connected to the internet. First check that all cables are securely plugged in, especially the cable from the phone jack to the gateway device. You may need to cycle power on the gateway device to restore the DSL connection, and you may need to reboot the computer afterward to reconnect to the Internet (depending on your OS).

I want to know how I can re-set my 3Com 3crwe955275 wireless access point to its default factory settings. Can anyone help?


1 Remove power from the Gateway. 2 Disconnect all your computers and the cable/DSL modem from the Gateway router. 3 Using a straight through Ethernet cable, connect the Ethernet Cable/DSL port on the rear of the Gateway to any one of the LAN ports. 4 Re-apply power to the Gateway. The Alert LED will flash as the Gateway starts up, and after approximately 30 seconds will start to flash more slowly (typically 2 seconds on, 2 seconds off). Once the Alert LED has started to flash slowly, remove power from the Gateway. 5 Remove the cable connecting the Cable/DSL port to the LAN port, and reconnect one of your computers to one of the Gateway LAN ports. 6 Re-apply power to the Gateway, and when the start-up sequence has completed, browse to: http://192.168.1.1 and run the configuration wizard. You may need to restart your computer before you attempt this. 7 When the configuration wizard has completed, you may reconnect your network as it was before

When i connect the dsl cable to it the dsl light starts flashing green then red


Put tinfoil over your splice connectors and filters as they leak signals that totally confuse your modem. Never leave any bare wires, I tinfoil the entire modem to prevent the neighbors from hacking me. I don't use wireless, only CAT5 ethernet cable.

Connection show as good but internet wont come up


Could be a multitude of things, I would check your proxies first.
Go to Tools > Internet Options > Connections > LAN settings.

You most likely are not using a proxy server. Ensure your settings mirror the above, especially the "Use a proxy server..." setting.

One other possability: When you say you can connect to the LAN or wireless connection fine, I must assume you are using a router with wireless capabilities.

Just becuase you can establish a connection to your router, does not mean that router has a gateway to the internet. The router is simply used to create a network for file, printer, and internet sharing. It is totally possible to use the router strictly for networking purposes and not for internet sharing.

That being said, I would ensure the cable/dsl modem is securely connected to the router. Also try power cycling both devices. Check the lights on the modem, typically they give a status. Mine has a POWER, ETHERNET, DSL, INTERNET, and ACTIVITY light. Green typically means status is functional, red means it is not.

When my ISP is down, the DSL light will be flashing red. It is time to call your ISPs tech support if that is the case. Check all your connections to be secure and power cycle everything first, your ISP will ask you to do this as soon as you call them, and it does resolve alot of problems quickly.

There is always the possibility of them having an outage.

General rule is always check the physical layer first, which is cabling and hardware. Make sure it's on and plugged in. Then try rebooting it all.


Hope this helps.

Im just setting up my 2wire 2701 it works for a few secounds then stops the dsl light is flashing red. Any thoughts?


Hey!

The way I see it, there are 2 options:
1) There's a problem with your phisical internet connection - check the modem configuration and\or contact your ISP so they'll check that everything is configured well on their side.
2) Your router is failing... have it replaced!

In case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post me a reply before rejecting my answer.
If you are satisfied, rate my solution with the "thumbs" or (even better) add a testimonial.

Best regards,
Pelu.

How do you setup xbox live with a wireless connection my router is upstairs but i want to play my xbox 360 downstairs


Okay, to connect to Xbox Live using Wireless Internet you will need this:

One Xbox Wireless connection unit, There are two types, the black and white versions. The black one is able to pick up the most diverse signals and has a higher potential for speed so I recommend that one.
You will also need, of course, a high speed internet source (modem) and a wireless router connected to the modem. When looking for wireless routers look for ones with marks claiming to be compatible with Xbox Live or a Windows OS. Those have been tested to work with Xbox.

Before trying to set up your Xbox Live, make sure your Router is set up with your computer, and set to be used as a wireless router. That's another tip all together but just follow your installation CD.

Okay so here we go!

First, Connect the wireless networking adapter to the back of your Xbox.
If you have a network cable plugged into your xbox, unplug it. Check to make sure the adapter's light is on.


Here's what the light's mean:
On the gray adapter:
No light: It's not getting enough power( try plugging it another USB slot)
Green light: It is connected to a wireless router, gateway or wireless access point.
Red light: It is not connected, and is ready for configuration.
Flashing red: There is a malfunction. (try again, if the problem persists return it for a replacement)

On the black adapter:
No light: It's not getting enough power( try plugging it another USB slot)
Green light: It is connected to a wireless router2_bing.gif, gateway or wireless access point.
Flashing green: The adapter is attempting to connect to a wireless router, gateway, or access point.
Red light: It is not connected, and is ready for configuration.
Flashing red: There is a malfunction. (try again, if the problem persists return it for a replacement)

Now the CONFIGURATION, the reason most of you are reading this:

Turn your Xbox on and go to "My Xbox"
Go to "System Settings"
Go to "Network Settings"
Go to "Configure Network"
On the basic settings tab select "Wireless mode"
Select "Scan for Networks"
Select your Wireless source.

NOTE: If your Network isn't listed you will have to manually enter it.
To do this select "Specify unlisted network"
You will need to enter your SSID
Then choose which security you used to set it up on your Computer (ie: WPA, WEP...) Then enter your security code. If there is no code then select "no security"

Your adapter should have a green light now.

Now go back to "Network Settings" and select "Test Xbox Live2_bing.gif Connection"

If it works your good to go!

Hope this tip helps :)
