Install prob Just recieved ADSL AlcatelSpeeedTouch 516 modem. Hooked it up- works fine. Added a WL 520gc wireless router, powers up, runs the install, but not sending or receiving. While running set up with adaptor installed, iIt gets to 99% of the last step and then says the adaptors show problems and I should run it wired. Wired also gets no response. Tried redoing the install, with ony the wired installed, but also nothing!. Thanks for the help! Oh! I'm not very good with PC's so please keep the responses simple

Re: install prob

I suspect these devices by default may be set to either the same IP address or exist on the same subnet. If you know how to configure the devices you can check. Possibly you can connect a computer to each (when not router and modem are not connected to each other) and issue use the open the DOS or command prompt type ipconfig and press enter to get the default gateway address for each device and report the contents back here. Otherwise you may need someone to lead you through those checks and reconfigure the devices as appropriate.

As a new owner of a wireless router you may also want to consider this as you are installing it.

Wireless Router showing as connected, but cannot access Internet.

You have _THREE_ separate network connections to check:

1. your router, through your ADSL modem, to your ISP;

2. your computer, through an Ethernet cable, to your router;

3. your computer, through its wireless adapter, to the wireless adapter in your router.


1. Connect the Ethernet cable from your laptop directly to your ADSL modem, bypassing the router.
Turn the router off.
Restart the modem.
Restart the computer.
Click Start
Click Run
Enter CMD and press ENTER
Enter IPCONFIG and press ENTER
You should get output like:
Ethernet adapter Local Area Connection:
* IP Address. . . . . . . . . . . . : 123.456.789.249
* Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . : 123.456.789.1
* Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . :
Enter PING 123.456.789.1 and press ENTER
If PING does not respond, then telephone your ISP, and get them to trouble-shoot your connection.

2. Turn off the ADSL modem.
Connect the Ethernet cable from your laptop to one of the LAN ports on the router.
Turn the router on.
Restart your computer.
Click Start
Click Run
Enter CMD and press ENTER
Enter IPCONFIG and press ENTER
You should get output like:
Ethernet adapter Local Area Connection:
* IP Address. . . . . . . . . . . . :
* Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . :
* Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . :
Enter PING and press ENTER
If PING does not respond, then your router is not working.
If PING does respond, connect another Ethernet cable from the WAN port on the router to the ADSL modem.
Turn the modem on, and wait until the flashing-lights on the modem, and on the router, settle-down to a steady pattern.
If PING responds, then everything is fine.

3. If you fix #1 and #2, above, then your wireless adapter should work.

Sitecom WL-342 Wireless Router won't access internet.


Make sure there is a network cable going from your ADSL modem into the WAN connection of the router.

If the ADSL modem is wireless, then it is also a router in whihc case you will want to bypass the WL-342 all together.

-- who is your internet service provider

you may try this and see if this help solve your problem. make sure that your computer is directly connected to the router

Step 2: reset the router while power on then Unplug the router’s power cable.
Step 3: Unplug the Broadband modem’s power cable and wait for 30 seconds.
Step 4: Plug in the Broadband modem’s power cable and wait for its lights to appear stable.
Step 5: Plug in the router's power cable once the modem’s lights appear stable.
Step 6: Power on the computer on and configure the router settings
Step 7: test the Internet connection.

if this still didnot work, upgrade the firmware of your router
