Re: internet connection

This is a result of your modems configurations, get an internet connection and login to the modem using its IP,
To check the IP: right click your internet connection, click properties, then click support, under the defaukt gateway, write that IP address down, then type it into the address bar.
After logging in, goto intel default route, click scan.
Good luck with this

I have a smartrg wireless router I disconnected from all cables, relocated and hook it back up and now I have my power lite whan light my dsl and Internet light are not on and I can't connet Internet

Ensure that you have the cable from your DSL modem connected to the DSL (WAN) connector port on the rear of the modem. Also ensure that your dsl modem is connected to the phone line. If your modem is a model SR-350NE and it does not have a port labeled WAN on the rear, you must connect the dsl modem to the LAN1 port.

Here is a link that may help you.

Can't get to internet. says i'm hooked to internet but cant go any where.

Check the lights on your modem and make sure that it is connecting. If it is, power off the modem (unplug it normaly) and the router (same unplug). Now wait a few mins, power the modem back on first and wait for all the lights to turn green (some cable modem will have a yellow light). Now plug in the router and wait for all its lights to come on. Now try the internet again. If this fails disconnect the router from the modem (ethernet cable) and plug your computer directly into it. Restart the modem as you did before and when all the lights are on, try internet again. If you have internet at this point the problem is in the router somwere, if not call your internet service provider.

Can not connect to the internet through router if i hook up the internet straight to computer it works but when i try through the router the computer has no internet connection but it picks up the router

Some cable modems look for the MAC address of the computer until reset. You can either enter the MAC address from the PC into the MAC spoofing setting on the router OR disconnect and unplug the cable modem for 24 hours and start over. First, plug in the cable modem and connect the cable. 2nd, plug the router cable into the modem and router and plug in the router's power supply. Then connect the computer and it should work fine.

Unable to connect to internet through Linksys WRT160N router. Can unplug it and internet is fine. Tried power cycling the modem and router. Linksys comes up with all lights flashing and will not...

If I understand your problem correctly, you are able to connect to the Internet when you hook the computer directly to the modem, but not when the router is connected to the modem.
If this is the case, then you need to do a power drain on the modem. Power cycling the modem is not enough to clear the NVRAM of the MAC address of your computer. You have to unplug the power cord of the modem for 15 to 20 minutes in order for the NVRAM to reset and allow the modem to recognize the MAC address of the router.
After the modem has been unplugged for 15 to 20 minutes, disconnect the power cable from the router and then connect router to the modem using the Ethernet cable.
Next with the router power cord still disconnected, plug in the power cord of the modem and allow the modem to sync to the network.
Once the modem is finished with its start-up, plug-in the power cord of the router and let it sync to the network.
After the modem has completed its start-up, it should now be connected to the internet.
Good Luck

Just connected router to clear network modem and VoIP (wireless phone service), now when the phone ring, it disconnects me from the internet and the connection is lost until the phone call is complete.

Is your modem a DSL or cable modem?
If it is a DSL modem do you have a DSL filter on each phone line to the phones in your house?
The DSL modem does not need a DSL filter on the phone line.

Router Won't connect to internet

The cable modem sometimes register the hardware MAC address of the connected device. So your PC may be registered and it won't accept the router now. Connect the WAN port of the router to your cable modem and power the modem off and on again. It should re-register the connected device and now your router should work.

Does your modem also drop, or just when you use your router? If it drops when not using a router, your cable company can check your modem for you. They will not help with your router unless you got it from them. See if it stays up when you are plugged in directly to the modem.

2 Connect a cable from the back of the cable modem to the LAN port on the wireless router.

3. disconnect the power on the cable modem for about 30 seconds.

4. reconnect the power to the cable modem and wait until the unit boots completely.

5 power up the router and wait a few moments.

6. on the laptop, open the control panel and then the network connections control panel (this assumes we are working with windows).

7. Highlight the wireless adapter by clicking on it once.

8. To the right of the icon will be a list of links. (assuming windows XP). click the one that says "view available wireless networks". Your router should be in the list. If so, highlight it and click connect at the bottom of the window.

Router worked. Modem quit. Now it won't work with new modem

Ok in this case the problem is more than likely a generic one for all modems. All modems like to bind themselves to whatever device you have initially plugged in when you plug in the power cable for the modem. My guess is you had the pc hooked up directly to the modem and then plugged in the poewr cable to the modem.

To fix this you need to unplug the router and modem cables for 2 minutes. Plug in the modem with it being hooked up to nothing but the wall [Power Cable and Internet Cords hooked up only; no pc yet]

Your router is probably not need to be bridged so there should be a small hole somewhere on the router normally on the back or bottom saying reset. Press and hold that button with the router only plugged into the power no internet or pc [Although it doesnt matter if the pc is hooked up to the router] for at least 10 seconds. This will cause the router to reset to the factory default settings undoing the bridge. After this time the modem should say it has internet and whatever else except a activity light and similar things.

What you want to do now is unplug the router from the power and hook up the modem to the router and then plug the power cable back into the router.

After all this you should be able to go into the pc and access the router and set up the settings you like or need for the router if you want. Otherwise you should have internet again.
