Cannot get my router to connect with my westell modem

I use SBC Global dsl. I am trying to hook up a router to it. It will not work. Belkin says I need to "bridge" them, but SBC says that's not the problem. Can anyone help? Neither of them offer support on the modem...

You do not need to bridge your modem or router. I set up a linksys 4 port router with westel wire-speed and could web to both. You need to ensure that the modem is not handing out dhcp. you will also need to find out what the ip scheme is on the ethernet side of your modem. Most frequently it is 192.168.x.x You will then need to set up your router's WAN interface (so labeled) to be on the same scheme. Use DHCP on your router and you should be good to go.

I know I left out some details, but I don't want to type a book if you are comfortable digging on the internet or can take it from here.

Belkin F5D8236-4 Wireless Router will not connect to pannaway dsl modem with same settings as router I am replacing. Dynamic IP address setup. Modem light continously blinks orange. No internet light.


1) With direct connect with modem, check the IP address and default gateway.
(I came across such a modem, it gave default gateway as 192.168.1.254)
I also had the doubt of configuring as a dynamic connection
But it won't work!
Contact your ISP to completely bridge the modem and configure the dsl modem as PPPoE connection with correct username and password.
Finally connect the modem to router and do a complete network power cycle, i.e.: Unplug power from router 1st, then power from modem, unplug the telephone line and now do the exact reverse process... Plug back the tel. cable, then power to modem... now WAIT for lights on modem to come back, then plug in the power to router. This will surely work.

How do I hook up a G wireless router to my h/p computer


The usual setup is to connect your internet cable or dsl model to the WAN port on your wireless router. any devices that were formerly connected to your cable/dsl modem then get connected to the LAN ports on your router. You will need to connect to the wireless router via etehrnet cable the first time in order to setup your wireless connection, it's usually a simple setup following the prompts.

Can't get a wireless router to work with a speedstream 4200


This may actually be an issue with your ISP. There is a good possiblity that your ISP has bound your connection to the MAC address of the network card on your computer. This is a common occurance which is why router manufacturers give you the option of having your router clone your computer's MAC address. Go into your router's management an perform the clone, sorry I cannot give you more details but I don't know the specific model of your Belkin router.
