Is this a situation where the connection works when plugged into modem that came with the DSL; then does not work when you try to use the router?

If not it is probably another problem.

If so check out the following

Routers require configuration (setup) to connect to some devices to access the internetconnection - 1.gif.

I am will need to know your internet service provider (ISP) -- (as this is DSL possibly the name of the local phone company?).

If you are not familiar with configuring your wireless router --
Will you provide me with the Manufacturer and Model of the
Router? They all configure differently when it comes to
detailed instructions.

I may need manufacturer and model information on your modem device depending on what I find at the ISP's site. (if the link is right I probably do not need this).

Yes we will want to test with a wired connection first then on to any wireless connections you are considering.

With wireless services attached to your network1.gif you should also consider securing that wireless service1.gif so others cannot easily access your network and computers, like your neighbors or people on the street with a laptop.

If you want to consider that I can discuss several options with you. However to determine which options your equipment supports I will need to know the manufacturer and model number of your wireless adapter or the computer1.gif with a built-in wireless adapter you intend to connect to your wireless network.

Have a motorola modem and a AT&T DSL for internet. I can"t connect to the internet. The internet service said that the modem is fine but my drivers are bad. How do I get new drivers when I can't...

Ok, first off, lets have the computer talk to the modem.
When you first connect to your modem, (Power, phoneline (with filter in the correct port, and Ethernet cable to computer), the accompanying disk will negotiate the setup of your account.
If you already had an account, then proceed:

Connect the RJ45 cable to the computer and the offset port in the back of the modem (RJ45 is the cable that looks like a really big telephone jack, it only goes in one way)

once that is connected, bring up your browser. (Internet explorer)
Do not expect the internet just yet, but if it does, then you modem is working and you do not have wireless with this modem.

after you bring up the browser, type this into the address bar (where you have the http:.....) and hit enter (on your keyboard)

Assuming everything is properly connect and powered up, you should see a display of your modem's internal menu page.

The first page requires some information in order to talk to the ATT servers.

You will need you account login name

and your password; the one you set up your account with

save the settings, Power cycle your modem (remove the power plug and after 10 seconds plug it back in)

You should have (left to right)
If the 5th light blinks on the modem after the restart, you are connected.
Try to surf on your computer.
If you still do not have the 5th light (activity) you may have gotten a bad modem.

good luck and don't forget to vote!!!

Followed all the set up steps but my DSL light would not stay on

  • 1 Plug the Ethernet cable into the Internet port on your wall. If you do not have Internet ports installed in your home, connect a phone line adapter to a phone line jack. The adapter makes the phone line wider so Ethernet cables can connect to it. This does not block your phone from use.
  • 2 Plug the other end of the Ethernet cable into the Internet port on the back side of the Netgear DSL modem.
  • 3 Connect the Netgear DSL modem to a local power source. The power plug inserts into the modem via a small port on the rear of the modem.
  • 4 Insert a second Ethernet cable into one of the numbered ports on the back of the modem. Run the cable to your computer and plug it into the Ethernet port on the computer.
  • 5 Look on the back end of the DSL modem for an HTTP: address. Type this into your Internet browser's search bar. The Netgear DSL modem menu appears on the screen.
  • 6 Select how many computers are to use the modem, if you are using it with other DSL modems and set up a password (the default username and password is "admin"). Click "OK" to initiate the changes you made to the menu. You can now use your Netgear DSL modem to connect to the Internet.

    Computer repair tech said Linskey wireless caused internet prob

    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.

    Well, I understand that the modem is SS4100, which means ther are
    5lights on it being, Power, Ethernet, DSL, Internet & Activity....
    Note:The trouble shooting is done according to the Light Status on the modem.
    1. No matter what the proble is, the first step is to Power Cycle the modem to eliminate the static on the modem(to switch it off and back on).
    2. If the Power Light is anything other than a solid green, then the modem is fried(except the fact that the adapter is plugged and working).
    3. If the Power is green and Ethernet is off, then check for the LAN cable at the back 
    of the computer if its connected to the modem.(It turns green if connected properly)
    4. If the DSL light is anything other than solid green, then call up the ISP tech's to ask why the intenet is not working.
    (make sure the DSL cable is plugged firmly onto the back of the modem and the wall jack)
    5. If the Power, Ethernet and the DSL is green and the internet is not, the open up the Modem page(type in the address bar and enter for the modem page), and cross-check for the username and the password. Save the changes and your internet is working!!!
    6.  The Activity light usually blinks green and it does't have much to do with the troubleshooting.
    The above are the basic troubleshooting steps.
    Hope it solves your problem......

    Constantly blinking Activity light

    Well, you are very correct with the activity light blinking and the increased blinking except the fact that modem will encounter a problem in future...
    The 5 different lights on your modem namely Power, Ethernet, DSL, Internet and Activity have their own indications and explanations.
    1. The Activity Light indicates the amount of activity that is takin place on the computer on the Internet though the activity might blink even when you are not browsing. This can be explained by stating that the computer constantly keep sending signals  about it being connected to the internet and any other acknowledgements..

    So, you've got nothing worry about unless the Power or the Ethernet or the DSL or the Internet light Blinks....
    Cause they are the resultants of a fried modem(check for the adapter), faulty LAN connections, interrupted Dsl line and the account verification failure indications respectively.....

    DSL Flashing

    You dont need both. Do the following:
    Unplug your speedtouch from the phone line at the back of the speedtouch unit. Plug that cable into your Zoom. Then plug one end of an ethernet cable into router and one end into your PC. Type into a web browser (eg. Firefox or Internet explorer) username/password is admin/zoomadsl go to basic setup and input your ISP username and password (the one given to you by your internet provider) under PPP. Click configure my connection. Save changes and then write to flash (both buttons on bottom of page)

    Yes, this is normal. The flickering lights are showing activity - data is being transferred when the light is on, and vice versa. The power light should always be on when the unit has power. The DSL light should be solid as long as your DSL line is connected properly.

    My ethernet light is blinking

    Make sure you have internet. The ethernet light is blinking because what ever u have plugged into it is talking to the modem. The modem will then take that request and ask for it on the DSL/internet line. Make sure the DSL light is steady on and the internet light is on or flashing with activity.
