N64 No Picture on Vizio TV


Well it sounds like a coincidence then. Or if it's working on one tv and not another tv then you need to try a new av cable to see if it makes a difference.

How do i get my linksys router to work


You may need to reset your device and you will see a reset button at back of your router so all you need is to keep holding it for 10 seconds then unplug the power jack for like 1 min and then your device shall be reset.But please make sure to backup your all settings first.

double all connections and connectors, Power cycle, both modem and Router for bout a min(unplug and wait) hook back up and try testing connection to xbox live again. that should do it. Unless your gold is expired but it should at least hook up to live you just won't get to play online with friends and what-not. if that does not do the trick get on the phone with your internet service provider

Trying to hook up xbox360 to my internet to play online


if your using a modem its possible that it doesnt have a Ethernet port....Check the back of your modem and you should see a port that says ethernet near it. Plug your ethernet cable to the port in the back of the modem where it says ethernet. With the other end you plug it into the back of your Xbox 360 (its located in back to the far left....it looks like a phone line jack). You should then have xbox live

I have no computer or cable and need to set up internet on my PS3


??? A router will NOT replace your modem; the router won't work without the modem. If you're going to give advice, please make sure it is somewhat correct.

Okay. So first you need the telephone cord to go from the phone jack into the DSL port on your modem. Then you need the Ethernet cable that came with your modem (looks like a phone cord but much bigger) to go from the ethernet port in the back of the modem into the wan or internet port on the router. Verify that the DSL and internet lights are on on the modem.

For the rest of the setup, watch this . It will walk you step by step in connecting your PS3 to the wireless internet. Thanks and please take a moment to rate as fixya.
