Sounds link you need to setup PPPoE on your router. Not knowing who your ISP is, Netgear has this website that lists a lot of ISPs support on setting PPPoE up. that is located here: Netgear

If you can't find the info there, basically what you need to do is on your router, typically the main page, you might see an area that lists: DHCP, Static, PPPoE (or something similar). What you need to do, is select the PPPoE option and put your ISP login information (that is on your DSL modem now) there should be a connect or login button once your finished. Once that is done, your router does the logging in, instead of the modem.

it is a good idea to have your pc plugged into the router during setup. with a wireless connection, you may loose your connection during setup since many routers need to "reboot" after changes are made. after the initial setup, making minor changes via wifi are acceptable.

Are you trying to connect a wireless capable device to a wireless connection?

If Yes of if unsure, to connect a WiFi capable device to a wireless connection you will need the following: a cable modem, a wireless router, Ethernet, a WiFi capable device.

You would connect the wireless router to the modem follow the installation manual instructions for the router to properly setup the router, different brands require different setup procedures.

Once the router is up and running find the SSID (wireless network name you gave the wireless router during setup) for the wireless signal. Click on the SSID in the list of available networks and enter in the passphrase when prompted to.

If all is successful you should connect to a wireless network

Let me know if that helped or if you need additional information or clarification.

You need to have the router connected directly to the computer to do this setup. If you are directly connected to the internet you cannot communicate with the router and most everything will fail. Remember to set wireless security on the router, give a ssytem name and consider setting channels to 11 or so to not compete with wireless home phones.

Internet not working through wireless linksys router but working when directly connected to modem


I think the problem will rely depending on the settings on your router, Follow these step by step solution on resolving the problem.

1. Connect the cable coming from your modem going through the internet/WAN port of your wireless broadband router.

2. I suggest you test your internet connection first by connecting an ethernet cable from your Wireless Router LAN port going to your PC NIC(Network Interface Card).

3. In order for you to setup your router, you should be using a web browser. Go through your router configuration by typing 192.168.0.1 / 192.168.1.1, on your web browser. The ip address depends on the manual of the router which default ip address is assigned to your router.

Illustration:

after enter the ip address, pressEnter and you should see a login box where you can type the username and password of the router.

You should check from your manual what is the default username assigned when you purchase the router. Since some routers have been using standard username and passwords.
You should use "admin" as your username and leave the password blank, press Enter / OK.

If you have a successful login, you should see a router configuration webpage where you can setup your router.

Look for the Internet Setup panel, select what type of connection you are using,

DHCP - for cable modems
PPPoe - for most DSL modems

if you are unsure, just check with your ISP.
Set the SSID to identify your router and assign a WEP (Wireless Encryption Key) under your Wireless Security section to encrypt your routers network to prevent others from connecting to your internet without any permission.

either you need to reconfigure the router for the wireless configuration or setup the router for PPPoE connection. if you have internet directly to the modem contact your router manufacturer if not then you need to contact your ISP and ask if you need to setup the route rwith PPPoE connection and get the user/password

US Robotics Wireless Router problem


Sounds like some settings on the wireless router might be setup wrong...like DNS. While hooked into wireless, try going to a command prompt and type ipconfig /renew. Once it refreshes, type in ipconfig /flushdns. Try the Internet.

If that doesn't work then check the settings on the wireless router and see if the DHCP is setup with a static IP or dynamic one.

Depending on what that says, I can provide next steps.

Given that you have setup the Internet connection on your router, encrypting the wireless security will be fairly easy for you. Just follow these steps.

1. You should use you PC or MAC that is connected directly to the router via an ethernet cable. You can use PC or MAC, which ever is connected directly to the router (Connected thru cable not wireless).

2. Open Internet Explorer / Firefox (PC) or Safari / Firefox / Internet Explorer (MAC), then go to the address bar and type http://192.168.1.1 into the address bar and press enter. A window will pop up prompting you for a username and password to access the configuration page for your router. Leave the username blank and type admin as the password (**If that will not work, (Enter admin for both the username and password)

3. You should see the Setup page shown below :

4. Click on the Wireless tab at the top of the settings screen. Change the Wireless Network Name (SSID) from the default value to something unique (you can use your name or last name, or any name that you would like, because that will be the name of your wireless network, that will be the one that your wireless computers will detect) then click on Save Settings and then Continue when the Settings are successful dialog is displayed.



5. Now click on the Wireless Security subsection at the top of the page. In order to password protect your wireless network first use the Security Mode dropdown box to select WEP and then from the WEP Security dropdown box select 64 bits 10 hex digits. Choose a password between 6 and 8 characters and type it into the Passphrase box. Then click Generate. It Will generate 4 keys (Key 1-4). You will use key 1 as your password.


6. Finally click Save Settings and then Continue when the Settings are successful dialog is displayed.

7. Now let your wireless PC scan for available wireless networks, find the name of the wireless network that you have specified earlier for SSID then connect to that network. Of course since the network is password protected, it will ask you to enter a password, this is time that you will enter the network key (Key 1 - password).

Computer interfacing


You have a computer (what manufacturer and model?) connected to a Netgear WGR614 wireless router (please confirm the router manufacturer and model) by wire or wireless?

If the computer is connected wireless is it with a wireless adapter built into the computer or added to the computer?

If it was added to the computer what is the manuracturer's name and model of the add-on device?

Has any other computer ever successfully connected to the internet using your router?
  • If so was the computer connected using a wire, if possible?
  • If so was the computer connected wirelessly?
If no computers were connected successfully to the router please provide the name of your internet service provider?
I also may need to know the city and state you are located in or other information. We probably need to configure the router to attach to your internet service providers equipment

The following are to determine if the internet service providers equipment has been successfully installed and the capabilities of that equipment as it may support connecting your router, if necessary, and your computer to the internet.
Were any computers ever successfully connected to the internet by directly connecting to your internet service providers hardware?

If yes how were they connected
  • USB cable?
  • Ethernet Cable?
  • Wireless?
  • If wireless what is the manufacturer and model of the internet serivce providers hardware providing the wireless service?
