Question about Linksys BEFW11S4 Wireless-B Broadband Router (12503024)
Hi everyone, I recently purchased the above router and tried hooking it up. Unfortunately, I ran into a couple of problems. Firstly, a wired connection from the router to a desktop won't work. Secondly, as for the wireless, my laptop ( with built in wi-fi and such) sees the network created by the router and can connect to it but I am unable to use the internet itself.
I then remembered the 'install' disc and tried it out. That plan hit a snag too, step 12 won't go through because the router "cant connect to the internet". I can't help but feel it's something relatively obvious I'm missing ut any help would be greatly appreciated.
You will need to logon the router via the computer, and create a PPPOE internet connection. If you cannot connect to the router wirelessly my may need to use a cat5 cable between the computer and the router. The user manual that came with the router will show you how to do this. If you do not have the manual. Do the following: open internet explorer, in the address window type the IP of the router "example" http://192.168.2.1 your router IP should be on the bottom of the router. If not click start/run, type ipconfig at the > the router ip is listed at "default gateway".once you get to the routers logon page enter one of the following: username "leave blank" – username " admin " -or- username "admin" - password 1234 –or- leave password field blank.once logged on the router go to internet connections and select PPPOE enter the username and password provided by your ISP save the settings and you should make the internet
connection now. BPCS
