Question about Linksys Ultra RangePlus Wireless Routr Router

1 Answer

Multiple users cannot connect through router at one time!

While all of my computers have the ability to connect to the internet, they cannot be connected at once. If you try to access while another is connected, they will both be kicked off and will not be able to reconnect for some time.

Router or switch? I'm getting cable internet service in a couple days. The modem will only have one ethernet output but I have multiple PCs and xbox 360s in the house. My question is: Will I be able to...


Hello wetgrass 80,

Switches create a network. Routers connect networks. A router links computers to the Internet, so users can share the connection. A router acts as a dispatcher, choosing the best path for information to travel so it's received quickly.

So, you need a router. Be sure to buy one with wireless connection (wi-fi) so you can connect other gadgets too such as cellphones, psp, netbook, etc..

I hope this helped you.
You can rate my answer if you appreciate my help.
Thanks!

Is there a way i can hook up internet to 2 desktops with 1 modem/router?


That is exactly what a router is for.
If your modem doesn't have multiple ethernet connections, then go out and buy a generic router (like linksys or belkin or cicso or netgear, etc.) and hook the WAN port of the router to the modem's ethernet connection, and then hook the computers into the multiple ethernet connections on the router.

Can use only one computer at a time. Why i cannot use 4,5 computer same time?


I think you are trying to access internet through broadband.
Normally the Broadband is configured for a single user, if you want to use multiple computers to a single connection then you need to use a technology called NAT ( Network Address Translation).
This technology comes with all the Layer3 devices (Routers).
You can purchase a NAT capable device and you can use 4-5 computers through a single connection to reach out internet.

Cannot connect to the internet for mario cart it comes up error code 109144!


Error Code: 109144 There was a problem registering the console to the WiiConnect24 service. What to do:
  • If you have multiple routers and/or modems, try to connect to no more than one router and one modem try connecting from another location.
  • If you are using only one modem or router, something on your network or from your Internet Service Provider is blocking the connection. You may need to contact your service provider for more information.
  • If you do not have the ability to connect from another location (such as a friend's house), please call 1-800-255-3700 so that we may discuss available options.

Can you tell me what an ip addresse is im trying to connect to xbox live and it keeps asking for ip addresse


Every device connected to the public internet is assigned a unique number known as an internet protocol (IP) address. IP addresses consist of four numbers separated by periods(also called a 'dotted-quad') and look something like 127.0.0.1 

since these numbers are usually assigned to internet service providers with region based blocks, an IP address can often be used to identify the region or country from which a computer is connecting to the internet. an IP adress can sometimes be used to show the users general location because the numbers may be tedious to deal with, an IP adress may also be assigned to a host name, which is sometimes easier to remember hostnames may be looked up to find IP adresses,and vice-versa. at one time ISPs issued one IP adress to each user. These are called static IP addresses. beacuse there is a limited number of IP adresses and with increased usage of the internet ISPs now issue IP adresses in a dynamic fashion out of a pool of IP addresses (using DHCP). these are referred to as dynamic IP addresses. This also limits the ability of the user to host websites mail servers, ftp servers, etc. in addition to users connecting to the internet with virtual hosting,a single machine can act like multiple machines (with multiple domain names and IP addresses).

Internet problem connection.....


your computer has been set up to be the PPPoE account holder for the modem. if you have a router, you will need to configure the router to login to the ISP account using the PPPoE information so that your router is the account holder for the modem, then you will be able attach multiple computers to the internet using the router.

Consider securing the wireless connection if you have not done so your neighbors MAY be able to utilize your wireless connection and your bandwidth if you do not.

see http://www.fixya.com/support/t281214-wireless_security

Secondly if I understand you you have 4 computers using the router to access the modem connected to your Internet Service Provider; three using wires and one using the wireless. First have youneed to confirm that your internet service provider allows multiple devices to share the connection (which is what your router is trying to do). If so do you have to logon / login to your ISP to access the internet? (This login may be hidden from you in the modem provided by the ISP) Research if it is required to have your router logon to the ISP instead of either one of the computers or the modem in order to support multiple users. If that is the case you will need to determine if your router is capable of performing the logon for you and configure the necessary devices appropriately.

I can possibly help with the above but will need to know your ISP, and the manufacturer and model for your router and wireless card(s) to assist in configuring the components. The manufacturer and model information will also provide a basis for securing the wireless network if desired.
