Re: wireless yes, but ethernet no, why?????

There are two separate IP configurations for the wireless and wired ethernet adapter it could be that the two adapters may be configured differently -- the wired one incorrectly for your home.

It could be a bad ethernet cable.

It could be a bad port on the router.

It could be a hardware problem with the wired network adapter.

You don't need to install a wireless router. unplug your modem, connect the ethernet cable from your modem to the port on your router labeled internet or WAN, and then plug in the modem and router. Connect your computer to the network and you should be online.

Hi guru, i wish you help me please!! i condigured my wireless router actiontec and i have internet acces in my pc by cable ethernet, but when i try on my laptop by wi-fi or with my celphone, it says that...

Ethernet gives network signals from computer server with connectivity capacities. Once the ethernet is connected to your computer, once of the computers within the network structure has a modem or signal converter box to capture and distibute signals. Your computer is functioning with ethernet cable connection as arranged default. Recent computers however have wiifii capacities meaning that, the modem box is not ncecssary to make signals recognised. Recent computers have builtin signal recepticles, once the programs wireless features are enbled, any available computer networks aer detected. Howver, the wiifii makes connectivity to networks by requesting password keys if the aletrnate computers have protected the entry. Simply said, your computer is ok to function with ethernet as regular achievement. only when the ethernet is malfunct usually caused by the computer that has the modem disconnecting from yours. Your computer should actually get better networking with only one of the method available either ethernet or wiifii. Attempting to receive signals with wiifii and ethernet at the same time impedes the network speed since the structures may only allow an amount of data passage for each network on the same computer. Use the computer wireless buttons located at the system settings area to disable the wiifii until a computer request within your knownlege request to activate wiiffii. Keep in mind that once your wiifii is enabled, another computer is sharing resoruces makign the computer slower if a password was not set.

I'm trying to hookup a usb modem broadband to a router for a desktop and laptop

This wireless router does not have any USB connection on it. Types of connection available on this router are wireless and Ethernet. You can check on the modem if there is an Ethernet port on it.

If your modem has an Ethernet port, I recommend that you test the Ethernet connection using one of your computers. We want to make sure that the Ethernet connection on the modem is enabled. If not, you may need to contact your ISP or the modem manufacturer to make sure that the Ethernet will work before you install the router.

If your modem does not have have an Ethernet port on it. This is not the router that will do the work for you. And I personally does not seen any router yet with the USB port for the modem.

Hi i have tried many times to get my ntl modem to work with a new all goes well til the save settings screen comes up then it says ethernet cable not conected or unable to detect modem..etc...

After you click 'SAVE', the router will restart itself.
While it is restarting, it briefly disables its Ethernet ports,
and your computer will report "not connected".

Wait 60 seconds, while the router finishes its restart,
and those Ethernet ports will be re-enabled,
and the pop-up balloon on your computer will close itself.

2wire Wireless router not working w/Comcast cable modem

Its almost impossible to connect a 2wire DSL router with a Cable modem. They dont go hand in hand.
Although you can connect the outgoing ethernet wire from the modem in the last ethernet plug on the back of the router and then have the ethernet connections coming from the router. But not wireless. and if you find a way, contact me at
