Re: network not working after dsl modem connected to...

I assume this message indicates that wired connectiions to the router are successfully accessing the internet -- is that true?

Wireless are not accessing the internet, but appear to be connected to the router - is that true.

Do you know how to run PING? IF so ping the router from the wired and wireless and see if it works? IF it works wired and not wireless we have a wireless issue. IF it works from both we probably have a IP issue diagnosis follows this.

Do you know how to run IPCONFIG /ALL -- If so run it on the wired machine and the wireless machines -- gather the IP Address, Subnet Mask, Gateway, and DNS addresses from each machine. Any machine lacking DNS addresses or with invalid DNS addresses can not access the internet sites by name like If the gateway address is incorrect a machine cannot access the internet.

If you do not understand any of the above please ask by adding a comment to this message and I will attempt to provide detailed instructions.

Please provide the operating system of your computers to assist in providing directions.

How to Configure Belkin routers without installation CD for DSL ISPs ?

How to Configure Belkin routers without installation CD for DSL ISPs :
  • Connect the DSL Modem to Router in the port named Modem (usually yellow in color) using an Ethernet cable.
  • Connect the Computer to the Router in one of the 4 ports named wired (usually grey in color) using another Ethernet cable.
  • Open internet explorer / Firefox / chrome or any of your default web browser.
  • In the address bar type the default gateway address of Belkin router
  • Belkin router setup page (RSP) will be displayed.

Wired Part Configuration:
Check for the internet status at the top right hand corner. If it is connected then the wired part is working perfect with the router (wired computers will go online). Need not follow the steps below, directly jump to wireless part configuration.
If it is not connected then we need to configure the wired part by following these steps.
Step 1: You need to LOGIN to the router for making any changes. (No login password, just leave it blank and click SUBMIT)
Step 2: Click on CONNECTION TYPE (found on left side of RSP), it has to be selected as DYNAMIC and click next.
Step 3: HOST NAME leave it blank or you can type anything there and click on APPLY CHANGES.
Step 4: Now check for the internet status at the top right hand corner. If it says connected then everything for the wired part is configured perfectly. You can go ahead and configure for the wireless part.
If it is not connected then we need to do a network power cycle.
Steps to be followed for performing Network power cycle:
  • Unplug the power cable of both your modem and router.
  • Wait for 30 seconds.
  • Plug back the power cable of the modem and wait until all the lights are lit up in it.
  • Now plug back the power cable to the router and check for the lights in the router.

Modem & Internet lights will be lit and they will be solid (blue/green) in the router; it says that the Internet status is connected. Now you will be able to go online in the wired computers.

If still Modem & Internet lights are not solid in the router; it may be blinking in red/ amber it says that the Internet status is not connected. You will not be able to go online in the wired computers.

In this case you need to connect your computer directly to the modem and check whether you are able to go online. If you are not able to go online, then you need to contact your ISP and fix your issue with internet.

The above method is applicable for DSL ISPs only.

List of famous DSL ISPs in US:
  • AT & T
  • Verizon
  • Pioneer Telephone Networks
List of famous DSL ISPs in India:
  • AirTel
  • Bsnl

Share Your Internet Connection with More Than One Computer- The Easy Way

Here is a simple way share your home internet connection with more than one computer. This will work for both wired and wireless and doesn't require alot of technical or computer skills to accomplish. I'm sure there are other ways, but if you're looking for a simple repeatable setup, here it is.

If you've got a dsl connection through a dsl modem, this TIP will work for you.
If you've got a cable modem, this TIP will work just as well.

Here's a list of what you'll need.

  1. Dsl or cable modem that works on your system and you can access internet with one computer (If you're using the internet, most likely you've got this already).
  2. Wired (Ethernet) or Wireless Router (wifi routers have 4-6 ethernet ports also).
  3. For Wired: Ethernet cable to connect modem to router.
  4. For Wireless: Wifi compatible computer or wifi card for your computer (follow manufacturer's instructions for proper install).
  1. Turn all components off. This includes anything on your existing network- computer, modem, printer and any router you may currently be using.
  2. With all power off, connect an ethernet cable between your modem and your new cable/dsl router(wired or wireless).
  3. Turn on the power to your new router only and let it boot up completely.
  4. Turn on the dsl/cable modem and allow it to boot. Since the router was booted first, the modem with recognize the router's MAC address (ethernet numerical address) and connect that address to the internet.
  5. Connect all the other components onto the router with the ethernet cables as needed and turn on the components- no particular order is necessary after the router and modem are booted. Your router will assign MAC addresses to all the ethernet components. Once the MAC address is assigned, your computer should work correctly with the internet and shouldn't drop out when the second computer is turned on.
  6. For wireless connections, boot up your computer with the properly installed Wifi card, airport card and allow it to "find" your router. Once you get confirmation of the signal, you're good to go.
Following this procedure will allow your modem, your router to use their designed software to connect you without a bunch of programming. You will actually enjoy having more than one computer sharing an internet connection.

Remember this procedure and follow the steps again if you lose power and have to reboot your network.

My new linksys router BEFS41 can't connect to a cable modem that is working. when computer is plugged direct to cable modem it works. Why can't it connect to the router?

Make sure that your computer is able to go online directly through the modem.
If your computer is able to go online through the modem, that means the modem is working fine.
You will need to connect the computer to the router and the modem to the router.
open the set up page of the router and change the settings of the router according to the ISP.

Computer wont connect to internet with router

Troubleshooting steps:
1) Make sure that you can get it to work if you go from the cable/DSL modem directly to your computer
2) Assuming that works, disconnect the cable from the back of the computer and plug it into the WAN/INTERNET connection on the router and take a different cable and go from one of the LAN ports (labelled 1-4, typically) to the computer
3) turn off the computer, unplug the router and unplug the cable/DSL modem. Plug in the cable/DSL modem and wait for the lights to stabilize. Plug in the router and wait for the lights to stabilize. Finally, turn on the computer and try it.

I just switched from cable modem to dsl modem..dsl modem gets on the internet when connected directly to computer..once connected to router doesnt connect to internet

Your new ISP is DSL. the router was working before with the cable modem. The settings for the cable and DSL ISP are different. Now your computer is working when you connect it directly to the DSL modem. that means the modem is working.
The DSL modem works on 2 different modes.
You will need to check which mode is your modem working on and according to the settings of your modem you will need to set up the router.
To change the settings of the router, you will need to open the set up page of the router.

Cant get into to fix problem

Do you have cable or DSL internet service? On a DSL setup the router is at . At the run command, ipconfig/all will give all the current settings of your network connection. The line with default gateway is your router address.

Check the status lights on your router and modem as well as the network connection on your computer. You may want to try connecting to the modem itself with a wired connection and then reconnect the router and see if you can connect with a wired connection from the computer to the router.

If your network works normally with a wired connection, use the device manager to check your wireless connection. Also go through the router setup to check that no settings have been changed.

If you have missing lights on either the modem or the router, check the cables (replace them if you can) and transformers. A call for service from your ISP may be needed if the modem isn't connecting. (At least once, my DSL network went down after a lightning strike damaged the signal filter where the DSL split from the phone line.)

I hope this helps.

(I have an older router that does not give a local area connection if it loses the WAN from the modem.)

I went from a ATT dsl modem to a net gear modem and i cannot get the net ger mode and linksys mode to talk to the computer

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.
