    I've done everything on the Linksys support site up to Resolving PPPoE Error Messages at the bottom of this link: http://linksys.custhelp.com/cgi-bin/link.... DId the power cycle, but did not help.

    I can connect to the internet if only the modem is connected. When I hook up the router I can only go to 192.168.1.1 Not sure what to do.

One thing that isn't mentioned anywhere is the modem has to be in bridge mode. I was told this by a Linksys tech after doing all that was documented in the references article. I contacted my internet provider and they told me how to set the modem to bridge mode. This corrected the PPPoE error.

There are three major steps to setting up a wireless router.

First set up WAN side access to the internet. For this you need information about your internet service provider. Please respond with your internet service provider's name or better yet a link to their help/support website.

I assume you already have access to configure the router at 192.168.1.1 if not please do the following. Open Internet explorer and enter 192.168.1.1 where you would enter fixya.com and press enter -- do web pages appear in your screen from the wired computer. If so we have manual access to configure the router. If not let me know.

Please reply with a response to this message.

Second we will test wireless connections to the router

Third we will secure the tested wireless connections to the router.

This process will require interaction and several iterations of instructions to complete. Please add a comment to this request with the necessary information if you with to proceed in this fashion.

My new WRT160N Linksys won't connect ATT Motorola 2210 DSL Modem


For AT&T default IP address for the Motorola modem is 192.168.1.254.
Default for the Linksys IP address is 192.168.1.1.

Have you changed either one? For them to work correctly they need to be in different subnets. An IP Address of 192.168.y.xx, where y is the subnet and a different number for each device, usually 0, 1, or 2.

If they are in the same subnet, change the modem'smag-glass_10x10.gif IP to 192.168.0.254 or 192.168.2.254. Once you do this you will need to use the new address to access the modem.
You should make sure the router'smag-glass_10x10.gif gateway is outside the DHCP rage of the modem.

If you have ATT DSL they should be supplying the DSl Modem. Unfortunately they supply Motorola 2210's, which systematically burn out due to overheating. The symptom is that the DSL blinnks, but the other lights to the right of that will not come on. That means it is sending requests to the network for service, but the receiving section is unable to receive the reply.

I am on my 3rd 2210 in 3 months. ATT do replace them free, but they really need to switch to a different manufacturer.

Linksys router will not connect with motorola 2210 modem


Your problem may be timing.

Make sure you have all your cables connected correctly.

Do not have power to either the modem or router.

Plug in you modem and watch the lights go to work. Wait for them to settle down. Now plug in your router, again watching the lights. It should work now.

You can download Linksys' LELA program to monitor the network. Shows green lines to your computers, etc. when working and red lines when not. It will also give your status and make suggestions if you loose your connection.

Good Luck

Wireless network broken, access to WRT54G & Motorola 2210-02 via http.. denied


I have att yahoo dsl which I installed about a year ago. The process required bridging the ADSL Modem (in my case a speedstream 4100) and accepting dynamic IP addresses and configuring PPPoE on the WAN side of my Linksys router. The ATT support person walked me through the entire process over the phone even though I was comfortable with making the Linksys configuration changes as I had to do the same in China without technical support. The modem configuration was no more difficult than the router configuration as it was performed from a web browser too. The biggest warning was that to reverse the modem change (if desired) required use of a reset button because the web interface was disabled as a result of the configuration change. My advice to you especially if you are willing to attach the Linksys router to the telco modem is to contact the ATT highspeed DSL support line and see if they will walk you through it like they walked me through it. Reviewing your Linksys User's Guide and understanding the configuration of that device would probably be appreciated by the ATT Support person as well as assuring you can access the Linksys router to configure it during the call.
