Check if your router is configured for a pppoe mode, if not config it to pppoe mode, then you would be able to share internet, i suppose your internet service might be from dsl..

Only one of the ports of the Linksys NR041 model router is working at a time. If I connect subsequent RJ45 cables to the rest of the availabe ports, there is no internet connection achieved with 3/4 ports...

It is possible that you have bad router or defective cables. My company installs LAN (Local Area Network) systems and we fabricate own cables. They test with a specialized tester that you don't have available.

If your router and cables are functional, there is one other quick fix.

The solution I'm suggesting works in my business (LAN installations) about 95% of the time. I trust that it will work for you.

Let's see if I can help you.

Begin by turning on the second computer and your router

? Open Internet Explorer;
? Click on 'Tools';
? Click on 'Internet Options';
? Click on 'Connections';
? Click on 'Setup'
? Click on 'I want to set up my Internet connections manually . . .';
? Click on 'Next';
? Click on 'I connect through a local area network (LAN);
? Clock on 'Next'
? Click on 'Next' [This is not an error];
? Click on 'No';
? Click on 'Next';
? Click on 'To connect to the Internet immediately . . .; and,
? Click on 'Finish'.

That should have you online

All the best

I have linkys wireless router model wrt54g2v1.after i back up my computer i lost the linkys file. i cannot find cd for installation. now i am unable to open internet.


The reason for the CD is to configure the router to your cable modem. So if you reinstalled your computer you do not need the CD again. All you need to do is set the computer's Gateway back to your router. The links below will help you do this.

Let me know if you have any more problems or questions.

Make sure that your computer is able to go online through the modem.
If your computer is not able to go online through the modem then you will need to call ISP first.

Hello there!

Wow, what all will happend here =)

I dont suggest you to try and fix devices which have failed lighthing stike, since there should be a lot of power supply mess in there, if its not working anymore, just purcashe new one, they arent that much expensive.

Have an Acer Aspire PC computer - trying to hook up a Lynksys nr041 router so can hook up another HP Notebook computer...not for sure how to do this and be able to use internet on both computers. Thanks...

Ok if you have DSL this router will NOT connect via PPPoE so no user name or passwords for dsl. But if you have a cable modem just plug the network cord from your cable modem into the WAN port on router... then plug the computers into the 1-4 ports on the router.. you might need to reset your Cable/Dsl modem after everythings hooked up.
