I had Sprint and they both worked. I switched to Roadrunner and I can't get both to work. If I connect the cable to the cable modem and then connect the ethernet cable to the Belkin router and then from there to my computers, I thought they should work. One does but the main computer says little or no connectivity.

Turn the cable-modem off.
Unplug the AC poewr to the cable-modem.
Turn the router off.
Unplug the AC power.
Reconnect the AC power to both the cable-modem and the router.
Turn the router on -- this off/on sequence should "reset" the cable-modem and the router.
If the router still does not work, replace it.
If the cable-modem does not work, get RoadRunner to replace it, if they want to keep you as a paying customer.
I would AGREE with the tech and move on here is why,
1. If you tried another cable
2. if you tried a direct connection
3. if you tried a hard reset and firmware
Your pretty much done at this point. there is not much to think about here a router is a little circuit board with a micro-processor and a switch all it does it route data and there very delicate to age,dusty homes,eletricty spikes-outages and what have you. Its not wroth any time of fix and what I call a throw away device.
Thanks and please do leave positive feedback and ratings.
Lets see if this works out for ya. 1. In your browser go to http://192.168.1.1 2. The user will be "admin" and the password field leave it blank 3. Go to the Setup Tab 4. On WAN Connection Type make sure it is set to "Obtain an IP Automatically" 5. Go to the DHCP tab and make sure it is enabled 6. Unplug the Roadrunner modem and the Linksys Router. 7. Wait around 15-30 seconds 8. Plug the Roadrunner modem in and wait until all the lights except the ethernet/computer connection are on. 9. When they are all on plug the Linksys router power back in 10. Wait around 30 seconds and see if your getting a connection Otherwise get back to me. Good luck.
I'm sorry to say but you cannot bypass the modem capability of the DSL Westell Modem/router because that is really made to function as a DSL modem and a router at the same time, so the best way to make everything work here since you change from DSL to Cable internet just need to get a wireless router like a Linksys WRT54G that can make everything work again like before.....
Last time I checked Roadrunner required you to have them set up the router. However, you should have an existing router from Roadrunner all set up. If you connect your other router which has the wireless capabilities to that then you will be able to use your wireless. Otherwise you will need to call Roadrunner and have them do some configuration on your device.
It is possible but it may not work as a router (2 wire 270). The 2wired router only has a phone port and ethernet/usb for computer connection. So if you will connect the roadrunner modem to the 2wired, you can connect it to the ethernet port of the 2wire, but the 2 wire will not function as a router any more. It will work just like a wireless bridge. This one setup that you can.
