Can you broadcast wireless signal from connecting to ethernet with no DSL input


Yes, all the computers in your home (wired or wireless) can communicate with each other, via the router, even when the router has *NO* connection (through DSL-modem or cable-modem) to the Internet.

1
Choose your equipment wisely. There are many types of wireless routers, and they are not all created equal. Some of the lower end wireless routers are very basic, and will limit your home network to speed of 56 megabits per second (Mbps.) This is really not a very fast speed. If your access points will be very far apart, consider getting a router with ultra-range abilities, or a dual-band router. Also, while you're at the store, be sure to pick up one wireless access point for each computer you intend to connect to your network.

2
Remove your DSL or cable modem from the power supply.

3
Remove the Ethernet cable which connects your DSL or cable modem to your computer from the computer, but leave it plugged into the back of your modem. This cable looks something like a phone cord on the ends, but with much larger connectors and a larger, round cable. Do not remove the phone cord from the modem which is plugged into the telephone jack on your wall.

4
Connect the loose end of the Ethernet cable to the internet port on the back of your router. This port should be clearly marked, and will probably be a different color than the other ports.

5
Reconnect your modem to the power source. To protect it, plug it into the same surge protector which guards your computer.

6
Plug the Ethernet cable which came with your router into the Ethernet connector on the network card on the back of your computer. Then plug the other end into one of the Ethernet network ports on the back of the router.

7
Plug the router's power cord into the power supply. This device should also be protected by a surge protector. If you run out of plugs, it is well worth ten or twenty dollars to invest in a second surge protector.

8
Check the lights on the front or top of your router. The power light should be on, as well as the internet light, the wireless light, the security light, and a light for one of your Ethernet network connections. Check to see if any lights are off, flashing, or red or amber in color. This will indicate that the router is having a problem. If any lights are not on as they should be, check your cable connections to ensure that they are securely connected. Repeat the setup steps if necessary.

9
Install the software provided by your wireless router's manufacturer.
This is it you are done
Thanks .

I have an actiontec m1000 router/modem that has only one ethernet port. I have a desktop connected to it, and wish to use a laptop as well. If I get the wireless attachment for the actiontec router/modem,...


Yes.
If this attachment occupies the router's Ethernet socket, then the solution would be to purchase a wireless USB adapter for your desktop, so that both can connect via WLAN, with the added benefit of less cables and more placement freedom :)
Be sure to configure WPA or WPA2 security on your WLAN network, WEP is very insecure and will welcome unwanted guests.

Will comcast support Actiontec - ADSL Modem with 802.11g Wireless Router and 4-Port Ethernet Switch


Comcast will not support that kind of modem. Comcast is a Cable ISP thus the ADSL modem won't work with them because ADSL modem is for DSL providers. Cable Company uses different protocol than DSL. But Comcast will provide you the cable modem if you subscribe to them.

Where do i plug the lines from my 6310 all in one into my modem


On the back lower right of the unit you will see two ports for regular phone lines and one port for en RJ-45 ethernet cable. The phone port are for a phone line to come into to accept faxes through a ground line. If you still have regular phone service, the line coming from the wall outlet goes into the port marked "line" on the back of the All-In-One. The other port on the back of the printer is for a phone line to hook into a portable phone, that way you can answer the phone if there is no fax. The other port, for the ethernet cable goes to the modem or router, however you happen to have it set up.

Make sure you have enough power (wall outlet, Surge Protector (MUST HAVE A GOOD ONE)
And Double Check that the Power Cable is 3-pronged, NOT one that someone pulled the ground pin off of!!! THATS BAD!!!

Or you just got a bad Power Cable,

Also Make sure you have a BIG power supply (I recommend at least 450 watt PS!

Check this all as if it was a checklist.....so far I believe your motherboard is just fine......the problem is somewhere between your Outlet, Power Cable, and Surge Protector (I really hope you are running it on one.....Never run any computer or Valuable components without one!)

I only mention that because some people don't realize the importance of surge protectors)

I have AT&T DSL and want to install an Actiontec 54 mbps wireless


If the modem was pre-programmed for another service, such as Verizon, you will have to plug the modem into a wall and hold in the reset button on the back of the modem until it resets. Then load the AT&T software IF they provided you with such - the walkthrough is actually pretty good. If AT&T did not provide you the Actiontec or the software, you will have to go to Actiontec's website and download the Actiontec Installation Buddy and also follow the directions for downloading the non-proprietary version of the firmware (WARNING: do not update the player's firmware if ATT &T provided you with the Actiontec; the non-proprietary firmware will make the modem useless toward whichever service provided you with the Actiontec). Take note of the numbers taped on a sticker underneath your Actiontec - MAC Address, etc. You may need this information to complete the installation. Also, download the Actiontec manual - it will take you through the process, but it is not going to be easy to follow - know in advance that it is going to take time.

As you go through the Actiontec Installation Buddy process, it will prompt you to do a modem test - make sure the Actiontec is connected to the phone line and to your computer (via an Ethernet cable). It will do a modem test. If the modem test fails the first time, turn the Actiontec OFF, wait 10 seconds, and turn it on again. Try the modem test again - should work.

If AT&T did NOT provide you with the Actiontec, your task is going to be a bit tricky. If AT&T DID provide you with the Actiontec, it might be better to call their technical support for a walkthrough.

Good luck!

My HP Officejet 6310 All-In-One InkJet Printer is unable to complete the network installation


Are you connecting via usb or ethernet cable?
Through usb you need to install the driver on the pc it is connected to. Then share it.

Through ethernet make sure your CAT5/Ethernet cable is connected from your printer to your router/switch. Through the menu on the printer Print the network setup.

Then from your web browser type
http://ip address of printer from the network setup page

If you can then you need to add the printer driver on your pc and use a tcp/ip port to print to it through the network.

My Officejet 6310xi All-in-one keeps going to power reset also. I went to hp.com and followed the recommended troubleshooting steps there. I also used the directions to reset the printer to factory...


Hi. I just got off of the phone with an HP case manager. I was ready for a refund, but he helped me and now my printer is working fine. The key is to have your Officejet 6310 plugged directly into a wall socket. The variations of power through a surge protector often cause a power shortage to the unit. The 6310 needs the 110 volts to operate. Surge protectors will sometimes rob the unit of this power. Follow these steps:
1. Unplug the power cable & ethernet/usb cable from the unit (stand alone mode). Let it sit for a minute.
2. Plug the power cable directly into a wall socket. Then plug the power cable into the 6310.
3. After it powers up, push the "Setup" button.
4. Right arrow to "2.Print Report."
5. Press "OK" button.
6. Right arrow to "4.Self-Test Report."
7. Press "OK" button.
A page should print showing alignment and color settings. Now you're back in business!
