How do you set the router up!!! no diagram to hook up to desktop


How you connect it depends on how you plan to use it. Let me explain:

Some people have a dsl line (high speed internet connection) and their modem from their internet provider only has room for one computer cable to connect and use the internet. If the customer has more then one desktop computer they want to connect to the internet, they will need to buy a router. A router provides multiple ports for several computers to connect to the internet at the same time.

If you have a dsl modem already and bought a router to add additional computers to your network - then follow the instructions below to set it up:

Connect your phone cord from the wall into the dsl modem. Plug in the power cable from the dsl modem to the wall and turn it on. Connect an ethernet cable to the dsl modem (ethernet cables are the ones that look like a regular telephone cord but the ends are a little larger) and connect the other end to your router. Make sure you plug this cable into the port marked "ethernet" on your router. There is only one port for your internet connection line coming into the router, the rest of the ports are for adding computers only. Some routers say the word "ethernet" near the port for the internet connection. Others have a picture near or or brackets around it to show that it is different then the others. Plug in the power cord to your router and turn it on. Make sure you turn on your modem first and let it warm up before connecting your router. Modem power on first, then router power on - always.

Now connect an ethernet cable to your router and connect the other end to the pc you wish to use on the internet. Do not turn on your pc until the ethernet cord is attached. Your dsl modem has to be powered up first, followed by your router and then your pc. All in that order.

Your computer should automatically sense the internet connection upon start up. You can verify that your connection is installed correctly and that your pc is sensing it by looking at the bottom right side of your screen near the clock area. You should see a picture of a computer monitor that represents your internet connection status. Sometimes they glow green when they are healthy. Sometimes they show a red X on top of them if they are disconnected from the internet. If you can't find the Icon for your internet connection on the bottom right side of your screen, unplug the ethernet cable from the back of your pc - while watching the bottom right side area and plug it back in again. Watch for a change to locate the icon. Sometimes there is a downward pointing arrow near the clock which needs to be clicked on to open up the area and view the icons.

Thats all! One line from the modem to the router - another line from the router to the pc - and the internet should be up and running fine.

If you bought a router combination modem - then its the same as above - just without a separate dsl modem. (i.e. Connect the power cable from the router/modem to the wall. Connect the ethernet cable to the port marked "ethernet" for your internet connecton and connect the other end of the cord to your pc. Then turn your pc on. Router/modem power on first and pc power on second in that order)

All the lights on your modem should be green and steady - except for the one marked internet or connection which is usually flashing and moving. If you have any red or yellow lights then you need to troubleshoot and correct the problem before your internet connection will work.

Do I need a modem to connet my wireless acer aspire one to the high speed connection I have at home?


What you need is a wireless router. Your high speed internet connection at home might have a wireless router built into it, but some don't. What kind of internet connection do you have? what's the model of the modem you have. If you're not sure, just list the model numbers of all of the devices you have running.

I have a DSL502T ADSL Router,and have bought a new emachines computer. I can not connect to the internet. The computer has a wireless connection loaded but I want to connect by dailup Please could you help...


You are a bit confused with the various components required for Internet connections.
If you have a dial-up connection with an Internet Service Provider, all you do is connect your computer's modem port to the phone line and dial the phone number of your Internet Service provider.
If you are connected to the Internet Servise Provider by ADSL and have a combined ADSL router and modem then you connect the phone line to this router/modem. If the ADSL modem is separate component then the phone line is connected to the ADSL modem and this modem is connected to the router with a LAN cable and the computer is connected to the router with another LAN cable. If the route is wireless and the computer has a wireless card then you don't need a LAN cable between the router and the computer.
If you are connected to the Internet by ADSL, to secure your Internet connection and configure your computer so it can connect to the Internet, please follow my instruction - click on this link :-

Hi, i have wnr2000 and am trying to set it up. i'm at the setup wizard which says that i already have a valid internet connection. what does this mean and what do i do next?


Basically you need to sign up with an Internet Service Provider in your area. The ISP will advise you the type in modem/Internet connection you need for their service (ie. DSL or cable) and advise you or provide you with a compatible DSL or cable modem. The ISP will provide an installation disc or instructions to configure the modem so it connects with their Internet server.
The modem is then connected to the wnr2000 router's Internet/WAN port with a LAN cable.
If you have already configured the modem and connected it to the wrn2000 router and the setup wizard has detected that you already have a valid Internet connection (it has detected your TCP/IP address which your Internet Service Provider has given you - this IP address is your unique network address - it is similar to your house address in your street, in your suburb, in your state, and in your country). Just click OK and continue with the setup.

No internet connection by using the ethernet cable


Unplug the power to the modem and the USB cable. Plug in Ethernet cable in computer and plug in the modem. Wait for WAN side of the modem to connect and stabilize. If your PC is already on, you should see the network connection appear in the task bar (if it's configured to show up). Open a command prompt. Type 'ping 192.168.1.1' and press Enter. You should get 4 ping responses from the modem which indicates that you LAN connection to the modem is functional.

Let me know if this doesn't work and I'll guide you through other methods to get it working.

Connect two computers together


Hi,

Technically, yes. Both computers should have an Ethernet port (LAN), a crossover networking cable, peer to peer networking using static IP add, and Internet Connection Sharing on the PC with the Wireless Internet Connection. If by chance the PC with the Internet access is already using its Ethernet port, a second NIC could be installed.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

If you're Bell sympatico is a wireless modem/router and your laptop has built in wireless on it you just need to connect to the wireless signal of the Bell sympatico then that should be the time you can access internet with the laptop, But if your Bell sympatico is only a plain DSL modem you need to get a wireless router that will share the internet to your laptop and desktop so you can roam in your house with your laptop here is a sample of wireless router Linksys WRT54G.

Hope that helps........

Connecting my router


If its a wired connection it will automatically know that its connected to it. With the wireless you need to veiw the available networks before you can connect to the network. And if the router is already configured for internet they will automatically get the internet connection.
If you need help to make sure that the router is online. Kindly provide me with this info;

Internet service provider:
brand or model of Modem from internet service provider:
Operating system of the computers:

thanks.

Wireless internet connection


I may be able to help with this...but I need a detailed description of how you have things connected between the XP desktop, the cable, modem, the Linksys router, and the laptop. Also, is the Linksys router new?

Typically, the wan port on the wireless router connects directly to the cable modem with a cat5 network cable....then the desktop pc connects to the router...on port 1 for example...with a similar cable. Once the wireless router is set up properly, the laptop should then be able to connect using wireless.

Losing internet connection when I try to connect laptop to wireless router


Your cloning the mac address - thats the problem. It should use it's own mac address to connect to the modem. You need to power down the modem, then repower after a minute or so to let it connect to the new mac address. The problem you are seeing is due to network collisions betweenj the desktop and the router with the modem.
