    Roomate just bought a laptop (Windows Vista) with a Belkin G router, and wanted internet connection. I also have Embarq 660 series modem on a desktop (Windows XP). I have tried both "sets" of instructions that came with the Belkin product, and the laptop ends up with the only internet access.

    Had the same problem. The modem and belkin router share the same ip address. You need to change the router ip address to This will allow them both to work.

    I have just recently got embarq internet, my desktop works great but I want to surf with my laptop and I can not get my belkin wireless router to work with the embarq modem. I have tried to hook up only the router to change the ip addy however I can not even get online that way, with just the router hooked up. So that does not work, I can get to the modem's home page the way described but I did not want to change the ip address of it. So waht is an alternative to make my wireless router work or am I stuck purchasing the 150.00 dollar modem router that embarq is trying to get me to purchase.

    I have a laptop with Windows Vista and the Embarq 660 modem. I have changed the router's IP address as it states in the instructions. Still no internet access. The router light continues to flash on the Belkin wireless router. I have released, renewed the ip address on the laptop to make certain that there was no IP address conflicts and still nothing.

    I have tried to hook my desktops up, thinking maybe it was something with the laptop's configuration. Desktop #1 with Vista, same problem. no internet. Desktop #2 with Windows XP, nothing.

Call bekin support. I had this same problem. If you call embarq they will tell you to buy a different brand of router, but you can still use this one. You need to plug your modem into the out plug numbered 3 on the belkin router instead of the standard input slot. Call belkin and they will walk you through the rest of the technical setup. I do not remember it all.. lol

    I called Belkin about this problem last fall. They had me change my password & somthing else. Cost me $40, worked for a couple months. Now the thief across the street is back on it. Hate to spend another $40.00.

Check for the physical cables, check if they are connected properly, if yes, try to reset the router and reconfig it

Why is my embarq 660 series DSL modem box's 1st

Telephone your Internet Service Provider, and have them check that you've paid your monthly fees, and that the DSL-modem at "their" end of your telephone-circuit has not failed.

Try a different DSL-modem, to see if your particular modem has "died".

Check the 2-strand or 4-strand wire from the DSL-modem to the wall-outlet, to make sure that it is properly connected.

Try a different 4-strand wire.

I inherited a D-Link DI614+ Wireless Broadband Router from my son. I have DSL from Embarq. How do I set up the router to work with the DSL modem 660 series?

Are you trying to set up the router.
You can do it manually without the CD.
Make sure that your computer is able to go online through the modem.
If your computer is able to go online through the modem
Then you need to connect the computer to the router ad the modem to the router.
open the set up page of the router and change the settings of the router according to the ISP.

Every time i hook up the wireless router to the dsl router it doesnt find the internet ( its is a embarq 660 series dsl router and i have a belkin N1 wireless router)

the problem you are facing is due to the double nat issue(the embarq modem provides the ip address in the range of belkin router, that is the pc to the lan port of router.
login to the router setup page(type in IE)
in router setup page, click on lan settings and change your lan ip to problem ll get resolved...if still the status is not connected, switch off the router and modem and switch on it after a ll get fixed

This are some steps on how to setup your modem/router
New DSL Modem Available
Embarq is now shipping an updated version of the DSL Modem called the "660". It is smaller than the older model (645) and is much easier to setup.
A few years ago, Sprint/Embarq changed the way their servers communicate with the DSL modems. The new method is called DHCP, which is how the 660 modem works. The older 645 Modem used "PPPoE". So it's best to have the new 660 DSL modem.
The older 645 modem also had the same default IP address as the Linksys Router ( - so you had to change one of the addresses to make them work together.
The new 660 DSL modem uses as the default IP address. This does not conflict with the default IP address of the Linksys Router ( Note that if you had changed the Linksys Router IP address to, then you will first need to reset it back to the default address
If you call Embarq and request the new 660 DSL modem they will sent it to you at no cost. When you install the 660 DSL modem, you need to be sure that you power down the old 645 modem amd leave it off at least 1 hour before you plug in the 660 DSL modem. The Embarq server needs to "forget" the old 645 modem. After an hour, all you should have to do is plug in the new 660 modem and everything should start up properly.
Call Embarq Tech Support 1-877-646-3282 if you have problems setting up the modem. If the Internet Lights does not come on after a few moments - then call Embarq Tech Support.

Belkin Wireless N router/Embarq 660 modem/No internet

Make sure your physical connection is correct. From the modem, the ethernet cable should plugged in to the Internet/WAN port of the router. And your computer to port 1. Access the setup page of the router again and Enable the MAC Address Clone setting. Clone the MAC Address of your PC there then power cycle the router and modem. You should be all set.

I read your post and wanted to know if you are able to access the internet if you connect the modem directly to one of your computers. I would like to make sure that we do not have a problem with the network. What errors are you seeing and what lights do you see on the modem and router? Please send your phone number via email or private message and I will review the network for you. Thank you for giving us the opportunity to help you.
