    I have tried this and still have no internet connection. The only way to access the internet is with the USB cable. Any other suggestions?

    Connect through the ethernet cable....power cycle the modem, wait for all the lights to return on on the modem, then click start, run, and type "cmd" in the black window that opens type "ping 192.168.1.1" and hit enter. if ping statistics fails the NIC or network interface card in the PC is faulty and needs replaced.

    desktop or laptop?





    Go to best buy, circuit city, walmart and pick up a basic NIC and install it on a PCI slot in the PC, if your unformillar with doing that you could take the PC to a shop for repairs.



    Hope all works out for good for you.

Use a 2-wire or 4-wire cable to connect from the telephone-jack to the telephone-port on your DSL modem/router combination device.

Use an 8-wire Ethernet cable to connect from one of the 'LAN' ports on the router to the network-port on your laptop.

Then, you will have Internet access, and, if this router also has a "wireless" capability, you can configure it to provide wireless access to your computer(s).

Want to connect Linksys Wireless-G Broadband Router WRT54G to my computer for internet access.


I don't understand your question.

You connect to a router either wirelessly or via ethernet or via USB. There is another piece you need, you need a connection, DSL, FIOS or Cable. Do you have a modem?

If you have a moden, you connect your router to the modem by the method of your choice (Ethernete or USB or wireless). Then you connect your computer to your router via the method of your choice. I presume you have more than one cocmputer? You dont really need a router UNLESS you cannot put your computer near your router AND/OR you have multiple computers you want to network to your connection.

Sometehing else, is your computer equipped for wireless? or do you have a ethernet card called a NIC (Network Interface Card) and your operating system ... is it wireless able?

Does this help any?

Sharing of internet connection


You need to purchase a router and two network cables to connect the computers. If your computers do not have ethernet connections then you need a wireless router and two wireless network adapters for the computer. II recommend the Linksys W300N or similar for the router and the Linksys WUSB300N or similar for the network card. There are very simple set up instruction with the router and cards.

A router is basically a mini-computer that splits up one internet connections to 4 (or whatever # of ports you have).

Basic Connections to a router:
A Router requires a internet connections, so your broadband modem must connect to the WAN port (theres only one) of the router DIRECTLY. Then Ethernet cables go from the router to the computers on the LAN ports. Don't do something weird like connecting your internet to your computer then your computer to the routers WAN port, it'll most likely mess up.

Once you have connected your router like this, it should work.

If your modem only has a usb port, I have no idea how to make that work out. Sorry. Try getting a new modem from your ISP, or check if your modem does have a ethernet port, if it does just connnect that to the routers wan port.

Also computers should not interconnect with each other with use of a router. Thats what the router is for. Everything gets connected and split up at the router, nothing connects to anything else but the router, basically.

Connecting Wireless Modem to Laptop.


Firstly, you need to connect your router to a broadband activated phoneline. On the back of your router there is a socket which should say Phone Line and I believe it is at the top.
This will then radiate a radio broadband signal.

Next, you need to be able to link your computer(s) to your router. There are basically four ways of doing this.

1) ETHERNET - You can connect from the ethernet socket on your computer to the ethernet socket on your router. If you have an ethernet socket on your computer, this is the simplest connection but not always the most convenient. If you don't have an ethernet socket on your computer you will not be able to use the yellow cable.

2) USB - You can connect from the USB socket on the router to a USB socket on your computer. You will need to install USB drivers to do this, but it's not difficult.

3) WIRELESS - You can use a Wireless LAN Adaptor. This can either be a card, built in to your computer or an external USB linked wireless adaptor plugged into an available UBS socket on your computer. These are trickier to set up but you have the freedom to connect to the internet from anywhere within radio range of your router and without wires. Some computers have wireless network adaptors built in already, especially laptops. You can find out by doing the following:
Start\Programs\Accessories\Communications\Newtork Connections - check to see if any of the connections say 'wireless' If they do you're in luck.

4) HPNA - You could use a Home PNA Adaptor (HPNA). This allows you to connect to your router from a different room by plugging into a phone socket through through the HPNA. These can be a little unreliable and do suffere sometimes with interference.

As soon as you have connected to the router, you need to connect to the router's Gateway or control panel. This allows you to set a WEP security code for your network and stops your neighbour or anyone else from connecting to your network. If you use a wireless LAN you will have to set this up with your security code.

To prevent hash intereference to your phone, you need to use microfilters on each phone in your house. Usually a couple of filters will be included with your router, and you can easily purchase more, if you have phones all over your house.

Please find the guide for your router at the link below.
http://www.2wire.com/pages/pdfs/1000_series_Gateway_Install_Guide.pdf

You can also download software and drivers from http://www.2wire.com
Just go to the support page and look for your particular model

Hope this helps....
