    I have a Belkin wireless G router and was wondering if I hooked it up right. I have StarConnect as my ISP and was told two different ways. I have the ethernet cable hooked to the ethernet port on the comupter and the internet/WAN on the router. I have tried every setting StarConnect has given me but cant get my laptop to connect to the internet. Please help.

How can I set up Earthlink I got free it has Ethernet DSL and Internet with out Earthlink knowing possible??

you don't have to hide anything from Earthlink. You are allowed to own your own equipment and choose whatever home page you like, including Earthlink. Still give them a call if you are paying for it thru Earthlink. Remember you are paying for the service. iF YOU WANT FREE WIFI OR FREE INTERNET there are sites for that like WWW.FREEDOMPOP.COM .

Im needing help to hook up dsl with earthlink

I am sorry but when starting service with a new I.S.P. for the first time, you must be in contact with them to setup. If you are unable to reach them, I think its clear they do not want your business. Try emailing them if calling doesn't work. If you are having this much trouble just trying to setup with them, I would consider cancelling service. Their is no need to pay for such aggravation. You should be all over this site right now:

Zoom X7n Dsl 2/2 Modem/router/gw dsl light blinks constantly when trying to connect to Earthlink

Try removing the splitter, if it works then you might have a faulty splitter and you need to get it replaced. You might check if you are using the first phone jack in your house / apartment. I remember that was key when i was on DSL. Hope you get it sorted out, not having a working connection is very annoying.

Zoom X7n Dsl 2/2 Modem/router/gw DSL light will not stop blinking - trying to connect with Earthlink

Earthlink is not your local telephone company? You would need to contact your local service provider. If earthlink set up your DSL thru your local telephone company, you may have to have them contact them. Does your local phone to you or do you subscribe thru what they call a CLEC?

We purchased a netgear wgr614 wireless router and hooked it up thru my hp pavilion desktop so my husband could get my Earthlink DSL internet access on his Acer 5336 laptop. Since installing the router,...

Hi Leah,
If connecting your pc directly to the modem is faster. Definitely it is the routers fault. If it is still slow then it is your Earthlink DSL is faulty.
You can try reducing the MTU size (default is 1500). You can try these values 1492 or 1300 whichever works fine. You have to access the router's setup page to do this.
Click the link below on how to change the MTU size on a netgear router.

Make sure that the WRT54G has an internet signal coming in. Is the other DSL router have a wireless component to it? How are you wiring everything? How many ports does your DSL router have? If only one, go from the DSL router to the wireless router. Plug in your phones (VOIP) to the WRT

Earthlink lists this as the number to call when you purchase someone else's router 1.800.327.8454. Hopefully if they are not the right people that can direct you to the correct people to call when you have earthlink's equipment.

I hope this helps.
