How to Configure Belkin routers without installation CD for DSL ISPs ?


How to Configure Belkin routers without installation CD for DSL ISPs :
  • Connect the DSL Modem to Router in the port named Modem (usually yellow in color) using an Ethernet cable.
  • Connect the Computer to the Router in one of the 4 ports named wired (usually grey in color) using another Ethernet cable.
  • Open internet explorer / Firefox / chrome or any of your default web browser.
  • In the address bar type the default gateway address of Belkin router 192.168.2.1
  • Belkin router setup page (RSP) will be displayed.

Wired Part Configuration:
Check for the internet status at the top right hand corner. If it is connected then the wired part is working perfect with the router (wired computers will go online). Need not follow the steps below, directly jump to wireless part configuration.
If it is not connected then we need to configure the wired part by following these steps.
Step 1: You need to LOGIN to the router for making any changes. (No login password, just leave it blank and click SUBMIT)
Step 2: Click on CONNECTION TYPE (found on left side of RSP), it has to be selected as DYNAMIC and click next.
Step 3: HOST NAME leave it blank or you can type anything there and click on APPLY CHANGES.
Step 4: Now check for the internet status at the top right hand corner. If it says connected then everything for the wired part is configured perfectly. You can go ahead and configure for the wireless part.
If it is not connected then we need to do a network power cycle.
Steps to be followed for performing Network power cycle:
  • Unplug the power cable of both your modem and router.
  • Wait for 30 seconds.
  • Plug back the power cable of the modem and wait until all the lights are lit up in it.
  • Now plug back the power cable to the router and check for the lights in the router.

Modem & Internet lights will be lit and they will be solid (blue/green) in the router; it says that the Internet status is connected. Now you will be able to go online in the wired computers.

If still Modem & Internet lights are not solid in the router; it may be blinking in red/ amber it says that the Internet status is not connected. You will not be able to go online in the wired computers.

In this case you need to connect your computer directly to the modem and check whether you are able to go online. If you are not able to go online, then you need to contact your ISP and fix your issue with internet.

The above method is applicable for DSL ISPs only.

List of famous DSL ISPs in US:
  • AT & T
  • Verizon
  • Pioneer Telephone Networks
List of famous DSL ISPs in India:
  • AirTel
  • Bsnl
  • Mtnl
  • Tata indicom
  • Reliance Telecom

I changed my cable modem and now my router wont work


With an always-on, high-speed Internet connection like DSL (Digital Subscriber Line), a router is a prudent addition to your local network.
It filters out unauthorized access to your network, which prevents an intruder from accessing computers that are connected to that network.
However, getting your computers, routers and modems on the same page may not work right "out of the box."
There are a few things you must be aware of, especially if this is a wireless network.

Unplug your DSL modem and D-Link router.
In order for the network to properly recognize its devices, these devices must be attached in a specific order.
Plug in your DSL modem's power cord.
There is usually no power button on a modem.
Simply plugging in its electrical cable will turn it on.
Give your DSL modem a couple minutes to re-establish its connection to AT&T's network before taking any further action.

Plug in your D-Link router's power cord.
Like the DSL modem, this router will probably not have a power switch; simply plug in the power cable, and it turns on.
Let the D-Link router sit for a couple minutes while it establishes its connection to the DSL modem and AT&T's network.
Physically attach your computer to the router with an Ethernet cable.
Even if the router and modem are wireless, a physical connection must be established to properly configure the router.
If this is not a wireless network, then your setup procedure is essentially complete.
To access a D-Link router on your network, open an Internet browser and navigate to the 192.168.0.1 address.
This will bring you to your D-Link router's interface.
The default User Name is "admin" (without the quotes), and there is no password.
Enter the User Name and click the "Log In" button. This will bring you to the Setup window.
Refer to your D-Link router's documentation for changing the default password (highly recommended) and forwarding ports.
If this is a wireless network, you have a couple further steps.
First, change your network's SSID (Service Set Identifier) title, so that you can recognize it when other wireless networks are nearby.
Also, choose your wireless encryption and passphrase. WPA2 (Wi-Fi Protected Access 2) is a solid option.
Specific instructions depend on your model of D-Link router; so refer to your documentation (which can usually be found at the manufacturer's website if you do not have it on hand).
Disconnect the Ethernet cable from your computer.
Your new wireless network should be visible with your computer's wireless adapter.
Windows and OS X will notify you of networks in range when your adapter is active.
Connect to the one with your SSID, and enter the passphrase.

Sync wrt54g2v1 router to modem?


Turn off the modem (i am assuming you are using a cable modem. if it is a DSL modem, this will not work) and the router. Turn the modem back on and wait until all the LED's on the front of the modem come on and blink or stay solid, then turn the router on. If it is DSL, you will have to refer to this page:

We had to have at&t reconnect our dsl service. we had disconnected the Linlsys now we can't get it to work.Help please


Turn the DSL modem off.

Turn the Linksys router off.

Turn your computer off.

Check that all the cables are correct & are connected:
* 2-wire or 4-wire cable between telephone wall-port and DSL modem;
* 8-wire cable between DSL modem and the WAN (or 'Internet') port on the router;
* 8-wire cable between one of the LAN ports on the router to the network-port on your computer.

Turn the DSL modem on, and wait until its blinking-lamps settles down to a repeating pattern.

Turn the router on, and wait until its blinking-lamps settles down to a repeating pattern.
Ensure that the lamp for the WAN connection is on.

Turn your computer on, and let it boot.
Ensure that the lamp for one of the LAN ports on the router lights up as the computer is starting.

After your computer has booted, your router should have assigned an IP-address to your computer.
Click Start
Click Run
Type CMD
Press Enter
Type IPCONFIG
Press Enter
You should see an IP address like '192.168.xxx.yyy' for your computer,
and a similar IP-address for your "default gateway".
If you see an IP address like '169.254.xxx.yyy', then your computer has *NOT* obtained a *valid* IP-address.

Also, your router should have obtained an IP-address from your ISP (AT&T),
and you should have Internet access -- try to access 'www.CatsThatLookLikeHitler.com' (or any other web-site).

How to confirm that the BSNL modem is having problem & cannot be used any more if INET light is continuously blinking?


There are several lights on your modem/router. Each one has a function and signals whether it is working correctly by the color it is displaying and a few other factors.

All of the lights on your modem/router should be green and solid - EXCEPT for 2 which are for your internet and wireless services. Blinking means activity. If you INET light is continuously blinking that means its healthy. Blinking means activity. The internet always has activity. The blinking does not signal your activity - it signals the traffic and connection on the internet. Your wireless connection also has a light which should show activity and availability. A blinking light on your wireless connection means that either someone is connected wireless and using the internet or that the connection is up and available for wireless access.

All of your lights should be green. If you see a red or yellow light - regardless of whether it is flashing or not - it means that there is trouble or problems that need to be corrected.

Each light is marked with its function. They should say things like "power", "link", Internet or INET, and "wireless". When you turn on the modem/router during your first set up, let it power up and finish its testing before connecting your pc and turning it on. The modem will test each light, make them all go from red/yellow to green - then make them all turn solid green (not in that exact order) and this is all normal. You will know when it is done when all lights are solid green and stop blinking and/or moving (except the INET & wireless lights which will be constantly blinking). When all lights other then those two are green and steady - then its time to connect the cable to your pc and power it up.

If you are having problems with your internet connection - you can rule out the cause being your modem/router by following the instructions above. When you rule out that the modem/router is not the cause, you can continue by checking your PC.

For a wired connection (wired meaning that you are connecting your computer to the internet by using a cord/cable) the first thing you want to do is make sure that the computer is automatically sensing the connection.

Your computer should automatically sense that there is a live internet connection when you connect the ethernet cord from the modem/router to the pc. When its working right, the computer will display a connection picture which is called an "icon" on the bottom right side of your screen near the clock area. Sometimes there is a downward arrow by the clock which needs to be clicked on to expland this area and show all icons for running programs. If you see a downward pointing arrow by your clock on the bottom right side of your screen, click on the arrow.

Test that it is sensing the internet connection by unplugging the ethernet cable from your pc and watch the bottom right side of the screen at the same time. Unplug it and repeat if necessary while watching the bottom corner to see a change which indicates it senses the connection. A normal internet connection icon looks like the picture of a computer monitor. Some glow green when they are active and the ethernet cable is connected. Some show a red "X" over the picture of the monitor on the bottom right side of your screen when the internet connection is down or not working. Some will say "cable disconnected" when you unplug the ethernet cord. Some show "Cable now connected" when you plug it back in. You should see something change and/or appear if your pc is picking up the internet connection correctly. When you have verified this as true - then you can continue on to the next step of troubleshooting the internet connection.

DSL service is an internet connection that is always on. Its considered a "live" connection. DSL connections usually do not require any set up (programming or changing settings). The only time that this is not the case is when someone tries to to set up a dial up connection like aol over the top of a dsl connection. You can check this by going to your control panel, click on internet options, and choose the "connection" tab at the top. In the connection area box there should be "nothing". The connection area box is for dial up connection settings. If a dial up service was set up in the pc it would show it here (you would see AOL dial up ect). If you see a dial up connection set up and you know that you have dsl, click on the remove box and delete it from this area.

You do not need to install anything from a disk to establish an internet connection if you have a dsl line. That means you dont need an "aol" disk or software to make the internet work.

to start the internet click on the blue "e" on your desktop which stands for internet explorer.

If you have any questions you can reply to my solution by going into the problem you posted on Fixya and click on the "reply" option.

Can't connect to internet on my IBM T40 think


You need to supply some more information, are you trying to connect wired or wirelessly? For either first see if your network adapters are installed. Right click on "my computer" either on desktop or start menu. Then choose properties then hardware then device manager this is slightly different depending on your operating system but you need to get into the "device manager" Google it if you cant find it. i.e "how to get into the device manager in windows vista" Once in look for the "network adapters" tab drop down the + sign and see if they are both listed and there are no "!" going thru them, if there are then you need to download drivers, if not and they are installed properly then to connect "wireless" you should see a series of bars by the clock on the right side of the taskbar some computers have a switch to turn the adapter on or off some have a key combination such as fn+f2 or f5 etc., there will be a wireless icon on the key to identify it. If on then when you left click on the bars you can choose veiw available networks, choose yours and highlight it and choose connect, if it is a secure network you will need your network key or passphrase. Wired: just plug it in to the ethernet port and it will try and connect to the network. If you are getting a limited or no connectivity icon you must reset your modem and router in this order. Disconnect (power) to your modem and router if cable unscrew coax cable also. all lights out screw cable back in, then power on your modem..WAIT for all lights to come on solid (with dsl the dsl light should be on and solid not blinking) once your modem is up then plug in your router wait for all lights to come on. Thsi should put your computer online. If not, open internet explorer then go to tools / internet options / lan settings make sure that proxy server is NOT checked. If it is uncheck it and choose "automatically detect settings" above it. Most likely if it was checked you have some rogue phony antispyware on there and your computer needs to be scanned for issues. one last thing you can always right click on the intenet icon by the clock and choose "repair" wired or wireless it will reset the adapter and correct the problem. I think I covered everything not knowing your OS
