See if maybe this will help. You didn't say what type of router(wired or wireless). Yhis should give you some idea. Hope this helps. Thanks

LinkSys Router Setup Physical Setup of a LinkSys Router Each model of LinkSys router will differ slightly, but the general design is similar across all models. Therefore, the setup is similar across all models.

  1. Attach the antennas to the router (if your LinkSys router support wireless)d
  2. Plug the Ethernet cable from your broadband Internet provider into the port labeled "Internet"
  3. Plug another Ethernet cable into one of the available ports
  4. Plug the other end of that same cable into an Ethernet port on your PC
LinkSys Router Configuration LinkSys routers now ship with a Setup Wizard which is intended to simplfy basic configuration tasks.
We do not recommend the LinkSys Setup Wizard for two reasons:
  1. The Setup Wizard is not significantly easier that the regular configuration menus
  2. If you use the Setup Wizard, you will end up learning two interfaces for your LikSys router instead of just one
Instead, we recommend simply starting your web browser and jumping into the configuration.
Once your web browser is open, go to the URL http://192.168.1.1/. This will take you to a popup box which asks you to enter a username and password.

Logging in to a LinkSys Router
The username is either blank or "admin" and the default password is "admin".
Once you are past the login screen, you are able to access (and change) a plethora of configuration options for your router.
Don't be worried by the enormous number and variety of options, your LinkSys router ships with default settings that enable it to work right out of the box in most environments.
From here the configuration options that you choose are largely up to your own personal preference.
If this is a wireless router, we recommend that you consider setting an SSID to identify the router as your own and configuring WEP to encrypt your wireless traffic.

Can I set this up this wireless router if I have cable internet and not DSL?


You CAN do this if you have access to the firmware of the ADSL gateway.

Connect cat5 cable from ethernet port on cable modem to ethernet port 1 on ADSL Gateway. (Must be port 1)
-Connect cat5 cable from computer NIC to other port on ADSL Gateway.
-(You may need to) Start->Run->cmd
ipconfig -release all
ipconfig -renew
Here's the trick...
-Open web browser, go to ADSL Gateway homepage (likely 192.168.0.1)
-Configuration tab, Advanced WAN->WAN
-Change WAN PORT drop down from DSL ATM PORT to ETHERNET PORT 1
-Click Edit button. Change Protocol from PPPoE to ROUTED.
-Radio button for DHCP Client to Enable.
-Click Set button.
-(You may need to) Power cycle both Cable Modem and ADSL Gateway device

Now this was done on a Westell ADSL gateway from verizon, yours may differ and you may need to look up the instructions for your specific gateway.

I put the settings to factory on accident and now i can connect my xbox 360 on wireless connection?


1. Turn the modem off, and then turn it back on. Then turn the router power off, and then turn it back on. This is also known as power cycling the modem and the router.
Power cycle the modem first, and then power cycle the router. To power cycle these devices, you should follow your manufacturer’s specific instructions. Here are some general steps: a. Remove the power supply from your device.
b. Leave the device unplugged for 15 to 30 seconds.
c. Reattach the power supply to the modem by following the device manufacturer’s instructions.
d. Wait several minutes for the device to start and to establish a connection with your broadband provider.
e. Verify that the modem shows the appropriate power and Internet connection indicator lights by following the manufacturer’s instructions.

2. If power cycling your modem and router does not resolve the problem, try connecting the Xbox 360 console to Xbox LIVE by using the modem only. This eliminates any configuration problems on the router. If this setup works without the router, there is probably a configuration issue with the router. See the manufacturer’s documentation that is included with the router or contact the technical support group for the router.
3. Verify that your router's Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) service has been enabled. DHCP enables the router to assign IP addresses to the computers and consoles on your network when you go online. If you need help with this, see the manufacturer’s documentation that is included with the router or contact the technical support group for the router.
4. If you manually entered an IP address, gateway, subnet mask and/or DNS servers in the Network Settings area of the Xbox Dashboard , verify that it they are correct. At this point, you can also set your IP settings to Automatic. To do this, follow these steps:a. Move to the System area.
b. Select Network Settings.
c. Select Automatic.

5. If your ISP requires Point-to-Point Protocol over Ethernet (PPPoE) settings, try connecting to only the modem after you enter these settings in the Network Settings area of the Xbox Dashboard. Network Settings area of the Xbox Dashboard.
Note Some ISPs may require Point-to-Point Protocol over Ethernet (http://www.xbox.com/en-US/support/connecttolive/xbox360/resources/glossary.htm#ethernet) (PPPoE) settings, This means that you may need settings such as a username and password in order to gain access to your ISP’s network. If you are unsure whether you have to enter these settings, please contact your ISP support group. At this point, if you can connect directly to the modem, see your router documentation to configure the PPPoE settings correctly on the router.
6. If you are receiving an IP conflict error in the More Info section of the Xbox Dashboard, turn off all devices on the network. Try to connect to Xbox LIVE with only the modem and Xbox 360 console connected.
If this works, there may be a configuration issue on the router’s Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) server. DHCP enables the router to assign temporary IP addresses to the computers on your network when you go online. If you need help with understanding DHCP or the configuration, see the manufacturer’s documentation that is included with the router
