    i plug it in but everything but the internet light come on and still cant get on the internet

  • Anonymous Jan 10, 2008

    My problem is also the touchy internet conection. I have a new vista pc and a xp home edition pc hooked up to the router through the eathernet cabels, and internet from COX cable. When setting it up I ended up having to spend five and a half hours with tech support just to install. The connection will work fine for accessing my AOL e-mail but many sites are slow or won't respond, also I play America's Army and it is effecting that in odd ways such as clicking to join a server but nada happening not even some thing saying that a problem happened its like it just ignores me. My major frustration is that when trying to download programs my transfer speed is less than that of dial up and I have cable around 25 - 36kbps when before using the router often speed would be 1 mbps. I have heard that it might be that my connection and router have diffrent data rates but I can't find what those values would be. Heads up I know enough about computers to go from folder to folder in windows and hook up all the cables so help for an idiot would be appreciated.

Try loading an alternative firmware, e.g. openwrt. Actually there are lots of it on the web HyperWRT, Tomato, X-WRT, DD-WRT, etc.of course not all works fine, but if you can try everything its good. i have a Linksys WRT54G ver 2.0 even the latest firmware from their site sucks i mean really sucks...you don't have to be techy just always follow the read me and you'll do just fine...try reading a lot...it helps

  1. simply unplug the router and the modem from their power source

I think it is your Internet Service Provider you are having problem with. You can test it by isolation. Unplug you internet connection from your router then connect it directly to your computer's LAN port. If you are having the same problem, try replacing your LAN cable.

Most Cable Internet Service Providers (ISPs) use Media Access Control (MAC) Address authentication to establish Internet connection for end-users. MAC address is a unique identifier assigned to the network adapter/s of the computer.
To set up your Linksys router to work with a Cable ISP, you have to enable the MAC Clone feature of the router. MAC Cloning is a procedure which enables a router to copy the MAC address of the computer that's registered with the ISP.
To setup a Linksys router with Cable connection you need to perform four steps using the computer that's been registered with the ISP:
i. Verifying Internet Connection
ii. Connecting Devices Together
iii. Checking the Router's LEDs
iv. Configuring a Linksys Router for a Cable Internet Connection

Router causing internet connection to fail intermittently


Hello,
There are a few things can make your wireless router to lose your connection. I like to start with the most simple things first. First clear Out any clutter on your browser. If your are using Internet explorer, go to tools click delete browsing history. When the box appears, clear out the first 3 things. History, Cookies, and temporary Internet files. Firefox, you click on tools, clear private internet files.
After than do a disk cleanup.
In start menu, go to all programs, accessories,system tools and select disk clean up. After this unplug Cable modem's electric cord, unplug the power to your wireless router, leave it unplugged for a couple of minutes, Then plug in your modem,router and restart your pc in that order. If that doesn't work you can always change you network name and WEP key, Hope this helps, also I was assuming you are using a PC and not Mac.

Need to add Linksys WRT54G-TM wireless router with Linksys SPA 2102 phone adapter


your SPA2102-R seems to have one ethernet connection and one internet connection.
your WRT54G-TM seems to have one internet connection and 4 ethernet connections.

What you are trying to achive is; plug a ethernet cable into the ethernet connection on your SPA2102-R then plug the other end into the internet port of the WRT54G-TM

hope this helps, I have assumed that you intend to use a DSL broadband supplier not ADSL.

if you are changing service from DSL to ADSL then your WRT54G-TM needs to be first in line configured and working. then plug the internet port from the SPA2102-R into any of the WRT54G-TM ethernet ports.

Connection drop-outs


Is your laptop wireless adapter a compatable brand. It doesn't necessarily mean the router is bad, you may even be getting RADIO interference from a cordlees or a cell phone in it's path. Do you have the capability to plug a cat-5 cable directly into your laptop from the router when you lose wireless? Check the wireless channels and see about changing the channel on your cordless phone too. May not work, just a hunch.

Good Luck
