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.

My wireless is going on and off, what's the problem?


Frequent wireless disconnection can be caused by different factors such as:

• Wireless interference within the network
• Wireless settings of the Linksys ADSL gateway are still set to default
• Firmware is corrupted
NOTE: Before going through the steps in this article, check if your wireless computers have stable connection when connected to other wireless networks (hotspots).
To resolve intermittent wireless connection, you need to perform the following steps:

i. Reducing Wireless Interference
ii. Customizing Wireless Settings of the ADSL Gateway

Try to hook up with net flicks through my 2 wire router and blue ray player blue ray tells me it fails gateway ping test.how do i fix


The router needs to hand-out an IP-address to the BluRay player -- either it is not doing that, or the BlueRay player is not properly accepting the hand-out.

Check the "network" settings on the player; be sure that 'DHCP' is enabled.

I no longer have the install software, how can I set up wep for my unsecured router?


You dont need the Software to do this - you can setup routers manually - by logging into them - to start lets find the correct online manual - this is the start of getting an online manual http://www.zoom.com/techsupport/adsl/adsl_5590cf.shtml Page 28 - shows how to setup the wireless security also shows details on page 13 how to login to the router - using 10.0.0.2 in an internet explorer address bar - now these are quite OLD settings - so they may still be valid or a firmware update may have changed - to check - on the PC do the following start>run {vista/7 search box}>CMD>ipconfig --- you should see a number next to default gateway if its 10.0.0.2 then thats the same as the manual - but it may start 192.168.x.x ---- so that maybe the number you need to enter into the webpage NEXT - the default username and password --- from page 14 of manual then goto the wireless section and set the WEP security you require

Wireless set up problem - no gateway ip or limited connectivity


Connect using Lan Cable
be sure to enable java on your Browser.
Use ONLY IE: some router refuse other browser.
SET your PC on a static IP address on SAME subnet as your router (but of course different IP).
If subnet concept is NOT clear to just just ask here.
When connected with router (on Lan Cable) check every setting (WPA-PSK) TKIP key, Broadcast / Channel etc.
You can also disable every WLAN protection and restore it later.
Activate WLAN connection WHEN you are STILL connected.
Last but not least: SET your DNS IP address = your gateway IP (router)

No Line on US Robotics ADSL Wireless Gateway


Hi,

Initially what I suspect is that your USR's connection to your ISP is intermittent but with that of the USB modem is consistent. This is clearly an ISP issue and should be resolved by them.

One thing you can try is to verify the integrity of the line splitter that is commonly used to split the 2-wire signal to the telephone and to the modem/router. You can actually remove the splitter and connect the telephone line straight to the WAN/ADSL input of the USR 9106 Wireless Gateway and check if their is an improvement or if your ADSL and WAN IP will light up consistently.

Alternately, if your ISP is too busy to attend to your concern, you can try mimicking the USR's WAN settings to that of the USB modem's. While still using the USB (provided by your ISP) determine its WAN IP settings. This would be IP address, Subnet Mask, Default Gateway and DNS. You need to access the USB modem to get this data. Should you need detailed instructions, pls post back the make/model of the ISP provided USB modem. If you were able to gather the information. Connect your USR 9106 Wireless Gateway (Ethernet 1~4) to your PC using a LAN cable and enter its configuration page. In its WAN/ADSL settings, use the numbers gathered from the USB modem. You may need to do a full hard reset on the router (rear panel) prior to putting in the numbers.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. If problem persists, pls post back as requested, how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
