Router set up is very easy. You will need to access the router set up interface to make changes on the router.

If you are not able to go online using the router then you will need to check the settings of the router.
First make sure that your computer is able to go online when connected directly to the modem without the router.
If your computer is able to go online through the modem only then your modem is working properly, we will need to check the settings of the router.ind network key.


Router set up for Cable Internet service provider :

This connection type uses the MAC address of the main computer to identify your connection. They generally register the MAC address of the main computer. So the MAC address is everything in this connection type. Now we set up router using the MAC address of the main computer. Main computer is the computer which was able to go online through the modem. Use only the main computer to set uo the router.
Connect the modem and the computer to the router . Check the IP address on the computer.
According to the Default gateway value open the set up interface of the router. Once you open the set up interface, you will need to clone the MAC address of the computer. Then change the wireless settings on the router and your router is ready to go.

Router set up for DSL Internet service provider.

What is DSL connection?
DSL (Digital Subscriber Line) is a high-speed Internet service that competes with cable Internet to provide online access to local customers. DSL operates over standard copper telephone lines like dial-up service, but is many times faster than dial-up. In addition to being faster than dial-up, DSL does not tie up the phone line. Coexisting with telephone service in this way allows users to surf the Net and use the phone at the same time.

There are two types of DSL connection

1 ) PPPOE : In this connection type you will get user name and password from the Internet service provider. Your computer will not be able to go online when connected to the modem only. You can open the router set up and change the Internet connection type to pppoe and type the user name and password for the ISP. After that change the wireless settings of the router and it will be ready to go.
2) DHCP : In this connection type your computer will be able to go online when you connect it directly to the modem.
you don't require the user anme and password for the ISP.
In this connection your computer will get a private IP address from the router. According to this the IP address of your router will change. Change the wireless settings of the router and it will be ready to go online.

My router wont work when it is connected to the modem. the message that on there says limited access


Hello,
If you already verified that your modem works if computer connected directly to it, try powering down router and modem. Start modem first and wait at least 2 minutes before starting router.
if this doesn't help you will need to verify that your wired connection to router works first before you can attempt to use wireless.
With your computer connected to the router try to open router setup page. Based on router type you should be able to access it from browser using: http://192.168.1.1 or http://192.168.0.1 you will need to login using default admin/admin account or according to router user manual. Configuration page will allow you to verify if you have Internet connection and configure other settings including wireless connection.

Cable modem internet works when directly plugged into desktop, but when run through the router, no connectivity


Most cable Internet Service Providers (ISP) use a Media Access Control (MAC) Authentication to establish Internet connections for end-users. A MAC address is a unique 48-bit (6-byte) integer that is attached to an Ethernet NIC for each computer. To set-up your Linksys router to a Cable ISP, you have to do MAC Cloning. MAC Cloning is a procedure which enables a router to copy the MAC address of the PC that's registered with the ISP.
To setup a Linksys router with Cable connection you need to perform five steps:
  1. Verifying Internet Connection
  2. Connecting the Devices Together
  3. Checking the Router's LEDs
  4. Configuring a Linksys Router for a Cable Connection
  5. Power Cycling
NOTE: Before proceeding, use the computer that can go online when connected to the modem and follow the steps below.
Verifying Internet Connection
Connect the Broadband modem to the computer using an Ethernet cable without the router installed and make sure that the Internet connection is active. If it is not, contact your ISP. If it can go online, the PC connected to the modem is the one that's registered with the ISP.

kb4682-001_en.png NOTE: The image may vary depending on the computer and modem you're using.
Once an active Internet connection is established through the modem, connect the modem and the computer to the router by following the instructions below.
Connecting the Devices Together
After ensuring that you have an active Internet connection, connect the modem to the router's Internet port and the computer to any of the four Ethernet ports. For instructions, click here.
After connecting the devices, check the LEDs by following the instructions below.
Checking the Router's LEDs
The Linksys router's front panel will indicate the status of the connection. After connecting the broadband modem to the WAN or Internet port, the computer to an available numbered port and powering on the router check the lights on the front panel of the router. For instructions, click here.
After checking the router's LEDs, configure the router for cable Internet. For instructions, follow the steps below.
Configuring a Linksys Router for a Cable Connection
kb4682-002_en.png For Telstra Cable internet users, please contact Telstra to confirm if your internet connection is using DHCP or HB (Heart Beat) signal. There should be no other machine running HB client upon doing this procedure.
Step 1:
Access the router's web-based setup page. For instructions, click here.


NOTE
: If you are using Mac to access the router's web-based setup page, click here. If you forgot your IP address, click here. If you forgot your router's password, click here.


Step 2:

When the router's web-based setup page appears, click the drop-down arrow under the Internet Connection Type field and select Automatic Configuration - DHCP.
(a) If you are NOT using Telstra HB, proceed with DHCP setup.

NOTE: If you are a Telstra Cable internet user and you're using WRT120N, WRT160N v1, WRT320N or WRT610N, please select Telstra Cable.
(b) If you are using Telstra Cable, proceed with the following setup. Obtain your user name and password from Telstra. Please disable any HB client that might have been previously running on the PC after the router is configured.

NOTE:
If the Internet IP Address is all zeroes (0.0.0.0) click kb4682-008_en.png first then click kb4682-009_en.png. If the Internet IP Address is still all zeroes (0.0.0.0) perform a power cycle. For instructions, click here.
If the IP Address starts with 192.168.1.xxx or if it has the same first three numbers (octets) as the router's IP address, change the router's LAN IP address to a different LAN segment. For instructions, click here.
Once the router is configured, perform a power cycle. For instructions, follow the steps below.
Power Cycling

Step 1:
Shutdown the computer.

Step 2:

Unplug the router's power cable.


Step 3:

Unplug the Broadband modem's power cable and wait for 30 seconds.


Step 4:

Plug in the Broadband modem's power cable and wait for its lights to appear stable.


Step 5:

Plug in the router's power cable once the modem's lights appear stable.


Step 6:

Power on the computer on and test the Internet connection.
NOTE: If you're not online after performing this procedure, you may need to upgrade the firmware of the router.

Hi, i have wnr2000 and am trying to set it up. i'm at the setup wizard which says that i already have a valid internet connection. what does this mean and what do i do next?


Basically you need to sign up with an Internet Service Provider in your area. The ISP will advise you the type in modem/Internet connection you need for their service (ie. DSL or cable) and advise you or provide you with a compatible DSL or cable modem. The ISP will provide an installation disc or instructions to configure the modem so it connects with their Internet server.
The modem is then connected to the wnr2000 router's Internet/WAN port with a LAN cable.
If you have already configured the modem and connected it to the wrn2000 router and the setup wizard has detected that you already have a valid Internet connection (it has detected your TCP/IP address which your Internet Service Provider has given you - this IP address is your unique network address - it is similar to your house address in your street, in your suburb, in your state, and in your country). Just click OK and continue with the setup.

Wireless router says its working laptop says no its not


Your sister was accessing the wireless access point at school which is connected to the Internet/WEB access via a router and the school's broadband service provider.
For you to access the Internet using your wireless adapter on your laptop, you need your own wireless access point and connect it to a broadband ADSL or cable modem and then connect it to an Internet Service Provider. Some Internet Service Providers (cable and ADSL) can supply a combined modem/router/wireless Access point.
If you already have a broadband modem all you need is a wireless access point/router. You only need to configure the wireless access point and your wireless adapter so they will communicate with each other. Folow the instructions in the manuals.

Dificulty in configuring wrtg4g


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.
