DSL modem and Linksys Wireless Router not working together anymore
I came home for holiday break and hooked up my Linksys Wireless G wireless router to my mum's DSL modem (A Westell).
It worked for 2 days when I accidentally deleted my password on my wireless laptop. I figured I could simply reset the Linksys and make a new password.
Unfortunately, I deleted all my settings on the Linksys by holding down the reset button for 30 seconds, and now I can no longer connect the router and my mum's desktop at once.
When it worked- the setup looked like this:
Phone line ---> Westell Modem ---> Linksys Wireless Router (WRK54G)
and the Linksys then connected physically with an Ethernet cable to Mum's PC (Vista) and wirelessly to my Dell XP Laptop.
We get service through Verizon.
Any chance anyone knows what settings my router should be at? Right now, I have the PC connected to the Linksys and it reads as a Local Network only, and no internet connection. My laptop connects to the internet, but the desktop PC cant make the connection unless it's plugged in to just the Westell modem that Verizon gave us when we signed up for their service.

If you have a wireless router and it is connected to the DSLor cable modem then -To connect to your wireless router, the router needsits wireless settings to be configured with the SSID, encryption key etc., alsothe wireless cards and wireless adapters in all the laptops/computers needs tobe configured with these router's wireless settings. Then the laptops/desktopcomputers can communicate with your wireless router and access the Internet via the DSLor cable modem.
connect it by the LAN cable and then it should come with a default IP address found on the box or the bottom of the the wifi router enter that in your address bar and you will need to type a username and password that is also found on the box of the wifi router then you can then configure it from there. good luck
The Linksys router can be communicated with by going to Start>Run>type 'http://192.168.1.1' and when the logon screen appears use 'linksys' for username and 'admin' for the password. There you can reset defaults, view status, configure all router functions, et al, including restore defaults. Pressing the little reset button has reset levels that vary with the amount of time it is pressed -basically discharging a capacitive charge. Remember that cable modems use DHCP whereas DSL uses PPPoE. ~Steve
do it this way :
1. turn off all computers connected to router
2.turn off router
3. if you are using a modem, turn that off too(just switch it off/ take off the power)
4. turn on the modem
5. once you have the power, dsl lights on, turn on the router.
6. once the power and dsl link is on, on the router
7. turn on the computer.
8. open internet explorer-> click tools menu -> click internet options -> click dlete cookies, delete temporary files,delete forms and delete passwords. and click ok on internet options.
9. try 192.168.x.x in the address bar. - it will work.
