    Would need more info on what the error message might read. Perhaps you need to reset the router? Do you know how to logon to your router? You can also do a live chat with a Linksys technician online and they will help you set up your router correctly.

That means the router is not communicating with the modem.
If you connect the computer directly to the modem it works. you are online. But if you conenct the router to the modem and the computer to the router it does not work ?
I believe you will need to reconfigure the router .
Reset the router for 30 seconds. Unplug the power to the router . plug it back in. wait for 1 minute.
Not access the router set up and reconfigure the router.

Cannot connect to the internet. Have the wireless USB piece and is set up, but will not surf.


  1. Test your internet connection by directly connecting your modem into your computer.Bypassing the router.If it doesn't connect to internet then your router isn't the culprit.Contact your internet service provider for your area.If it does not connect then follow below step.
  2. Reconnect your router to the computer.Turn on your computer and find program associated with router.Select "options" select security options and select security mode and turn your router off.Attempt an internet connection. If it does not connect to the internet then your router might have broken and tell it to a company. If it does connect then your computer may have experienced a security breech that router does not allow it.
  3. Run a virus scan or malware scan for your computer.

D-Link wireless router has been greta, until yesterday- the Roku boxes say my router strength is excellant, but all of a sudden, the box can no loger connect to the Internet even when I select my router-...


The router most likely is not synced properly with the modem. Your computer might still have a strong connection to the router, but isn't getting an IP address. Power everything down, including the modem and restart in this order:
1. Modem - allow a minute for it to run thru its diagnostics 2. Router 3. Computer
Once you've done this, if you're ISP isn't having outages, you should have the internet working again on your computer. If this doesn't work, call your provider.

I have a DIR-600 router to connect my Cable modem and use wireless connection to connect to the internet. It was all working fine till my modem LAN port got damaged somehow.I have changed the modem and now...


Try following this order before you connect your computer to the router.
power off all your equipment (cable modem & router & your computer's wireless card)
first, power on the cable modem, give it some time to boot up and get an IP from the ISP, say 30 secs.
then, power on the router, again, give it some time to boot and obtain its internet IP from the cable modem
finally, enable wireless on you computer and connect to the router.

if this doesn't solve the problem try resetting the router to factory defaults by pressing the reset button at its back for about 10 seconds with the router powered on.

This your router's manual it may turn handy:

How to change 192.168.0.101 to 192.168.1.1? because, 150mbps from router, but actually the speed is 11 mbps, tks


Really depends on what router you have and why you want to do that,
192.168.0.101 sounds like a computer IP,
192.168.1.1 sounds like the router IP.. changing the IP addresses will have no effect on your connection speed.

Also just because the router says it's capabale of 150mb/s doesn't mean your internet connect can support that speed.

Typically with Cable Modems your connection will say it's established a 100mb connection but in reality you're sharing that connection with everyone else on your "node" so you getting 11mbps isn't actually bad for a standard cable internet connection.

My laptop can detect the router but is not


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 not able to go online through the modem then you will need to call ISP first.
If your computer is able to go online through the modem
then you need to connect the computer to the router and the modem to the router.
open the set up page of the router and change the settings of the router according to the ISP.

I am getting an error reading saying The computer cannot detect my router...


hello!

-- who is your internet service provider
-- what is the operating system of your computer?
-- are you using a wired or wireless computer in configuring the router?

you may try this and see if this help solve your problem. make sure your computer is directly connected to the router


Step 1: Shutdown the computer.
Step 2: reset the router while power on then 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 configure the router settings
Step 7: test the Internet connection.

note:

configuring the router settings will depends who is your provider. if your isp is dsl you need to configure your ISP username and password on the router. if your router is a cable no need to change any settings on the router. it should automatically work

My Roadrunner Modem works fine when connected to an individual computer. When connected through my netgear modem I cannot get an internet connection on any computer wired directly to the router


does the modem worked fine with ANY computer connected directly to it, or just ONE computer connected to it?

did you have to install a connection program on one of your computers when you first installed the modem?

do you have an account name and password from your internet service provider, which is required to connect?
