Most DSL providers use PPPoE (Point-to-Point Protocol over Ethernet) to establish Internet connections for end-users. To set up a Linksys router, you need to enable PPPoE on the router’s web-based setup page.
To setup a Linksys router with a DSL connection you need to perform four steps:

  1. Verifying Internet Connection
  2. Connecting the Devices Together
  3. Checking the LEDs
  4. Setting-up a DSL ISP on a Linksys Router
Verifying Internet Connection
Connect the Broadband modem to the computer using an Ethernet cable without the router installed and make sure that the Internet connection is active. If not, contact your Internet Service Provider.

If you are using DSL as your internet connection there is a timeout period that could be setup in the linksys.

In order to change this you need to log into your router and on check on the setup page. You see the timeout option.

Check with your linksys manual for detailed instructions for logging into the unit. If you dont have it, you can always get it from their website.

You always want to start your windows normally.
In my 10 years as a computer technician I have learned that you never use the startup repair option cause it will never help.

I am having problems with my wireless connection. I was able to connect to my personal network but one day it wouldn't connect and now I'm lucky if I can connect/stay connected to a local network. Is this...


1. If the physical wireless switch is turned ON then use the Windows Mobility Center to turn on the WLAN adapter.

2. Configure the WLAN autoconfig service to start automatically. Open Services window to make this setting.

3. Reinstall the original wireless adapter driver. Uninstall the driver from device manager under the network adaptor category then restart the Computer before reinstalling.

4. If available, download and install a wireless adapter driver update from the Computer manufacturer support site.

5. If possible test, another computer on the wireless network.

6. Repair the wireless connection.

a. Click the Start button, and then click Control Panel.
b. In the Control Panel window, click Network and Internet .
c. In the Network and Internet window, click Network and Sharing Center .
d. In the Network and Sharing Center window, under Tasks , click Diagnose and Repair .
e. Follow the suggestions in the Windows Network Diagnostics window to repair the failed network or internet connection.

7. Disable Internet Protocol Version 6 (TCP/IPv6).

8. Boot the computer into safe mode with networking and test the wireless connection in Internet Explorer.
If the connection works in safe mode, the issue is likely caused by anti-virus or anti-spyware software. Configure the software properly per the manufacturer's instructions.

9. Reset the router and/or modem per the manufacturer's instructions.

We have anew acer p.c, and cannot access the internet. it accepts the wep key. help. wireless linskey, 3 other p.c.s no problem.


Hi,

What is the operating system of your laptop? Is it running Windows Vista or XP? Can you check if you're getting an IP address wirelessly?

Go to start>run>type cmd and then hit enter.

On the black screen type, ipconfig/all and see if you're getting an IP address similar to the IP address of the other working computers. If not, then that is the problem, that means that the wireless security that was entered on your new laptop is incorrect. To make sure that you entering the correct key, save your security key on a notepad and then copy and paste it on your wireless adapter settings.

Log into router by typing the ip address of router, usually 192.168.1.1 into an address bar (IE or My Computer). Enter in the router username and password, usually defaults to blank username with the password as "admin".
Then on the setup page you can make the MTU whatever you want.

Linsky password


If you're after the default userR/password to log in to the admin-intaserface on the router it's usually ussername=root and password=admin

If it's the wep-key it's asking for there are software that can fetch this from your computer, but it's probably just as quick and easy to change the wep-key in the router and set up your writeless computers with that key.
