You know it is not your connection nor is it your modem. Contact your isp and ask them to release and renew your ip lease. Then connect the router and retry. Should be good. Otherwise contact Microsoft

(800)936-3900,
choose 1 from the confusing menu. The line is free, open 24/7 and there is no
waiting. The best part is that they are very knowledgeable and helpful

Describe your cannot connect my cga5722 wireless


well you need to reset your router wireless config, your isp dont do this, you need to config yourself, but i give some help. try these manual steps:
4.1 Log on the webpages
Open your Internet Browser
Enter http://192.168.2.1 in the address field
Click on GO
• The following webpage will be displayed
Note
The only default language is English.
To access the required webpage, click on the corresponding tab on
the left side of the page.
4.2
Webpages’ menu structure
The table below describes the menu tree of the webpages.
4.3 ADSL/Internet Settings webpages
4.3.1 ADSL status
Click on "ADSL Status" which is located on the left side of the screen.
SET UP WIZARD Getting started
Wireless settings
ADSL settings
Confirm
The ADSL Wireless Base Station also operates as a wireless access
point, allowing wireless computers to communicate with each other. To
configure this function, you need to enable the wireless function, define
the radio channel, the domain identifier, and the security options.
Check Enable and click "SAVE SETTINGS".
You must specify a common radio channel and SSID (Service Set ID) to
be used by the ADSL Wireless Base Station and all of its wireless clients.
Make sure you configure all of its clients to the same values.
Access Control allows users to define the outgoing traffic permitted or
not-permitted through the WAN interface. The default is to permit all
outgoing traffic.
If the signal strength of a single wireless base station is not sufficient due
to a large coverage area or attenuation due to walls, with WDS the
range of a wireless base station can be extended.
All base stations in a Wireless Distribution System must be configured
with the same radio channel, and encryption type (WEP/WPA) if that is
used.

I have cable internet but it will not recognize MN 500 base station for internet


You need to perform MAC Address Cloning. Make sure the physical connection is fine. From modem to internet port of router, from pc to port 1 of the router as well. Now open the admin page of your router and look for MAC Address Clone settings. You have to enable it and click on Clone. Save the settings and power cycle your device for 1 minute.

Can connect to router, but not to internet


Is the main computer connected to the router or to the internet directly? If it is a cable modem for the internet, make sure you turn that off, as well as the router, and connect the cable modem to WAN on the router and put the modem on first, then the router. Connect the computers, xbox, etc to the router

Not able to connect to internet


1. try to check the status of the connection:
make sure it is connected and the status does not say either of the ff:
a. local only

2. try to change the network name [ssid] and the network key [wep or wpa passphrase]
you can change this by accessing the ipaddress of the router or its user interface

3.try to reconnect to the new network name
and make sure the status says connected.

this is not a browser issue . it is with the connection set up.

Loosing Connection between MN500 & MN520


If you are using XP, and installed the proprietary WiFi software (not the built in XP software), did you turn off the Zero Configuration Wifi SERVICE? Running both will cause issues with your connections..
