Can't install linksys wrt54g2 router with arris tm602g modem

We want to install a linksys wrt54g2 wireless router but can't seem to get it to work with our arris tm602g modem. Cables and connections are fine but no wifi to the laptop nor internet connection to the hardwired desktop pc. Is there some known incompatibility between the 2? The internet connection to the desktop is fine when I run the output cable straight from the modem to the pc (as it always has been).

    I finally got it to work. What you have to do is remove the ethernet cord that is connecting the modem to the router from the internet port, and plug it into port 1. Then, take the ethernet cord that is connected to the computer and plug it into port 2. So it should be modem to port 1, the port 2 to computer. It worked for me, so hopefully it works for you!

You shouldn't need any 'installation'. It should run out of the box.

may I suggest you give Network Magic a try? It is a Cisco product and the full version is available for free download and evaluation period. After the free period, they want $. Continue to use it with fewer features but still free or pay and enjoy effortless network management.

network Magic will make it simple to get into the router and adjust any setting that can be made to a router.

I hope this helps you

    I am glad you got this to work ... I guess my 'weakness' is that I assume question askers have READ the instructions and have plugged the wires into the proper holes ... AND checked this part BEFORE THEY ASK such a question!

    Marginally helpful rating of my answer is not justified. Not fair.

I have an arris tm602g. What is the IP address to access modem 192.????


Try 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.100.1. Make sure that your pc is connected directly to the Arris TM602G modem and not on a router.

Hi ltuttle650,

If your modem is not communicating with your Linksys router, your Arris modem was most likely installed directly to a PC or Mac when either you or a technician installed it. As soon as it connected it registered your MAC address from your NIC. You need to make your sure that the modem is still talking to the PC or Mac. Please try the steps below.

1. Find out what your NIC's MAC is (go to "Start", "run", "CMD", "ipconfig/all")

2. Copy down your NIC's "Physical Address." That is the MAC.

3. Go into your router's web based utility (Linksys is 192.168.1.1, username:none ; pw: admin) and click on the "Advanced" tab.

4. Then click on the "MAC Address Clone" tab.

5. Type in the number that you copied down. Click "Apply."

6. Now power cycle your Modem while it is disconnected from your computer and router. Power Cycle the router. After everything has rebooted connect the router to the modem and you should be good to go!

In most cases, this should work, and you ought to have internet access now.

If this did not work, the following is a quick fix:
1. Go to the 'Applications & Gaming' tab
2. Click the sub-heading 'DMZ'
3. Click 'Enable'.
4. Click 'Save settings'.
5. Wait for the settings to save, and click 'Continue'.

If this doesn't work, I would recommend calling your cable ISP and telling them that you need a modem that will work with more than one computer, or you need them to send a tech out who is able to set up the internet through a router.

Hope it helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Do I need a router in addition to the Arris tm602g ct provided by Comcast?


Yes, you will need a router the Touchstone® TM602G is only a modem. I recommend a Cisco-Linksys (#1 recommended router brand) like the E1000 Wireless- N Router (Walmart $59.00) with up to 300 Mbps data transfer rates; WPA/WPA2 (personal and enterprise) and SPI firewall protection; four 10/100 Mbps Ethernet ports. It will meet all your needs.

Need solution to Networking 2 comps thru an Arris tm602g/ct via a linksys 8 port switch, the seems to be no Usb connection on the modem


You will need to purchase a router my friend. The arris does not have a DHCP server built in and cannot assign IP addresses to the work stations. The only way that could work is if you ISP provided you with a second IP address, which would also be extremely unsafe from a security standpoint. Any wireless router should do the trick.

I have an arris tm602gct and cannot connect thru my netgear


Can you connect if you are directly wired into the router?

You may want to try using a ball point pen and pressing the reset button on the back of the arris. Let it reboot and try again.

Some netgear routers come with the wireless disabled out of the box, so you need to be hard wired when you run the CD or if you try to connect through your browser 192.168.1.1

How do i connect a Linksys wrt54g2 to a arris cm450a


Your modem is capable of linking up to a router. What you do is take an ethernet cable and run it form the internet port on your modem to the internet/wan port on your router. From there you connect your pc's into the LAN ports on the router (typically labeled 1-5) if they are hardwired or you connect wirelessly with your laptop. You need to also power cycle/reset your modem when you plug your router in.

Unable to connect Linksys wireless router to my arris cm450a


All routers will only work with ethernet. You would need to get an ethernet card installed in your computer. You can probably buy one for about 20.00 at Walmart. If you don't want to do this you can purchase a usb/ethernet adapter and still use the usb port on your computer. You can purchase one of these for around 5.00's on ebay. Just go to ebay and search for usb/ethernet adapter. Please rate if this has helped. Thanks.
