It didn't work for me.
Should the username be the email address from At&t that controls the DSL line, or should it be the username to get into the Netopia modem?

Try to reset the router. This should resolve your problem. That model has a small hole were you must press with some a paper clip for exemple for a few seconds. This will reset the router to its original state.

SOURCE: how to configure dmz on linksys wireless n router?

  1. Log into your router. (If you need help how to do it let me know!)
  2. Go to th "Application & Gaming" tab.
  3. click on "DMZ"
  4. choose "Enable"
  5. Enter the IP address of the computer you want to put in the DMZ.
  6. Click "Save Settings"
Some notes:
  • Putting a computer in a DMZ is pretty risky, because all ports to this computer are opened. Make sure that all recent patches are applied and your virus software is up to date! A more secure solution is to use portforwarding. (See this site how to do that for a specific software for your router.)
  • Your computer should be set to a static IP. For two reasons:
  • A) DMZ will not work if your DHCP server (your router) assigns at one point a different IP address to your computer,
  • B) If a different computer gets the Ip address assigned that you specified in your DMZ settings, then that machine is exposed.
If you don't know how to assign a static IP address, let me know and I walk you through the steps.

If you have any more questions, just come back here and leave a comment - I'm happy to help.

Cable modem internet works when directly plugged into desktop, but when run through the router, no connectivity

Most cable Internet Service Providers (ISP) use a Media Access Control (MAC) Authentication to establish Internet connections for end-users. A MAC address is a unique 48-bit (6-byte) integer that is attached to an Ethernet NIC for each computer. To set-up your Linksys router to a Cable ISP, you have to do MAC Cloning. MAC Cloning is a procedure which enables a router to copy the MAC address of the PC that's registered with the ISP.
To setup a Linksys router with Cable connection you need to perform five steps:
  1. Verifying Internet Connection
  2. Connecting the Devices Together
  3. Checking the Router's LEDs
  4. Configuring a Linksys Router for a Cable Connection
  5. Power Cycling
NOTE: Before proceeding, use the computer that can go online when connected to the modem and follow the steps below.
Verifying Internet Connection
Connect the Broadband modem to the computer using an Ethernet cable without the router installed and make sure that the Internet connection is active. If it is not, contact your ISP. If it can go online, the PC connected to the modem is the one that's registered with the ISP.

kb4682-001_en.png NOTE: The image may vary depending on the computer and modem you're using.
Once an active Internet connection is established through the modem, connect the modem and the computer to the router by following the instructions below.
Connecting the Devices Together
After ensuring that you have an active Internet connection, connect the modem to the router's Internet port and the computer to any of the four Ethernet ports. For instructions, click here.
After connecting the devices, check the LEDs by following the instructions below.
Checking the Router's LEDs
The Linksys router's front panel will indicate the status of the connection. After connecting the broadband modem to the WAN or Internet port, the computer to an available numbered port and powering on the router check the lights on the front panel of the router. For instructions, click here.
After checking the router's LEDs, configure the router for cable Internet. For instructions, follow the steps below.
Configuring a Linksys Router for a Cable Connection

(a) If you are NOT using Telstra HB, proceed with DHCP setup.

NOTE: If you are a Telstra Cable internet user and you're using WRT120N, WRT160N v1, WRT320N or WRT610N, please select Telstra Cable.
(b) If you are using Telstra Cable, proceed with the following setup. Obtain your user name and password from Telstra. Please disable any HB client that might have been previously running on the PC after the router is configured.

Step 5:
Select Enabled and click Clone My PC's MAC.


Step 6:

Click kb4682-012_en.png.

Step 7:
Click Status. Check the value of the Internet IP Address. If the Internet IP Address has numbers, this means the router has been properly configured. You should now be able to access the Internet. If you're not online, perform a power cycle to synchronize the router with the modem. For instructions, click here.



If the Internet IP Address is all zeroes ( click kb4682-008_en.png first then click kb4682-009_en.png. If the Internet IP Address is still all zeroes ( perform a power cycle. For instructions, click here.
If the IP Address starts with or if it has the same first three numbers (octets) as the router's IP address, change the router's LAN IP address to a different LAN segment. For instructions, click here.

WIFI not working with Linksys wireless-g broadband router/Comcast

Unplugging the wireless router and connecting it again should not have altered the wireless connection/configuration. You have connected the cables correctly because the Internet works when you connect a LAN cable to the router.
The Linksys wireless configuration or the wireless card configuration in the computer was changed it to lose the wireless connection. The wireless card configuration needs to be changed to match the wireless router's settings or change the Linksys with new configuration settings and configure the wireless card accordingly.

Linksys Wireless WRT54G Router Won't Connect

Here's something you can do.
First, power off the modem and the linksys.  Then swap the yellow cable with the blue cable (this time, connect yellow cable to port 2 of Linksys)
Now, turn on the Modem first... wait about 1 minute, then turn on the Linksys.
1. Log into the router and go to "Status" tab.  
2. You should see something called Internet and under it Configuration type.  If all you see is without a gateway address, it didn't work 
3. You can also see 2 buttons at the bottom of the screen.  Click on "DHCP Release", then "DHCP renew"
4. look at the configuration type and see if it is no longer Then try connecting to the internet to a website you have not visited (do not try the same websites as before when you initially tested).

Wireless router installation

Please see my response to this question. Your university's connection is most probably a LAN connection, so you'd need to follow the instructions as if you had a cable internet connection (unlike DSL, a LAN connection and cable internet connection don't require authentication with the ISP).
