Re: stoped working

Check to see if you can see other computers within the network. If you can then its not the router that is the problem but could be your isp.

First thing is to do a hard reset. Use a small toothpick to press the button on the back of the router. Be equipped with your username and log on of your ISP provider then go thorugh the wizard of setting your router up again. IF this doesnt solve your problem then follow the steps below.

1. go to run cmd then ping this will test if ur tcp/ip is working. If it is then go to step 2.

2. ipconfig /all this will help you find your ip address that has been assigned your computer.

3. ping the router probably or this will show that u can reach your router.

If all above tests work then its more than likely your ISP so give them a call.

There was a lighting storm the other day and when the house next door was struck my wireless router stoped connecting to the internet. It had been working fine the past 6 months is there anything I can do?

1. the lighting could have rendered your router functionless. or the cable/dsl line has been fried at the drop.
2. call you ISP and have the line checked.
3. If the router has a "red" light at the power light you have a bad power adapter or the power supply circuit in the router has been fried by the lighting. The only remedy here is to get a new router and a surge protection strip that is above 10,000 joules and guaranteed.

Internet light on wireless modem is red and wont connect to internet. DSL, Wireless and Ethernet port 4 are all connected with green lights. Wont properly connect the modem.

If you connect the computer directly to the modem, does it work?
If that works then the modem is working.
Now connect the computer to the router and the modem to the router.
You will need to open the set up page of the router to check the settings of the router.
You can set up the router without the CD also.
It is very easy.

My laptop wont connect to my wireless router, but my desktop which is directly connect will?

You wirless switch has to be turned on for that to work. If that is not the issue then sometimes it it best to plug it in to the router and set it up that way. the computer already recognizes the computer and it finds it easier to set up the wirless.

If you want to make it real easy to manage your computers and the internet. Download a network manage ment program. I will help you connect you computers to the internet and much more. Network Magic Pro or Network Magic Essentials $30-$50.

I hope i have given you information that has helped you.
Thank you for the chance to help as well...

Cant connect my router to my new internet

Did the old internet come with the router? It may have static settings in it. If so, you will need to configure it with the new static settings, or at least put it on DHCP.

My internet does not work on labtop

Restart all your systems. Turn them on in this order:
First. Cable or DSL modem. When all the lights are on,
Second. Your router. When all the lights are on...
Third your computers.

This should fix all your troubles.

good luck

Last night my 2 wire router stoped working. The

your rooter must have a reset button on it. Considering that there was a red light on, it sounds like it is off rather than dead. There are only a couple things to try, the reset I mentioned, and the other is a power cycle. Disconnect everything the input line, the power cord and any thing else that is connected, and wait 5 minutes to reboot and connect everything.

Red light

Can any computer connect to the internet?
You said you connected the computer with the cable to the 2wire using an ethernet cord, did it go to the internet?

Do you have a modem connected with the 2wire? (not a computer modem)

Do you have the DSL package or Cable package from Time Warner?

Have you tried resetting the router back to factory settings using the small hole in the rear? This will default it back as it was when you first got it.After doing this you would have to put all your original settings back into it though.
