Can i hook up wrt120n to laptop without hooking up to cable modem to fix?


Try this: Unplug EVERYTHING(related to both the router and modem). BEFORE you plug in power to anything, connect all of your ethernet. So, first ethernet goes from modem to router. Make sure they are in their proper places. Next, take another ethernet cable and attach that from modem to computer. NOW, power everything up. Google the linksys router splash page login. Im sure it'll be something like: 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.0.1 or something along those lines. From there, you should be able to set up your wireless. Once thats all good, unplug just your computer and everything should be fine. If that doesn't work, its either time for a new router or you're having wifi card issues.

when sharing internet connection, it's all about sequence when turning it on... Sequence in regard to what's turned on first, second etc... Here's the solution:
1. Turn everything off... modem, router...computers etc..
2. Turn on the wireless router FIRST and let it boot up.
3. Then turn on the modem and let it cycle up...
This allows your modem to lock onto the wifi router.
4. Turn everything else back on...
You should be good to go without drop outs...

If the power goes out, simply follow this sequence...
It's all about the sequence!!

Just connected router to clear network modem and VoIP (wireless phone service), now when the phone ring, it disconnects me from the internet and the connection is lost until the phone call is complete.


Is your modem a DSL or cable modem?
If it is a DSL modem do you have a DSL filter on each phone line to the phones in your house?
The DSL modem does not need a DSL filter on the phone line.

It should work with either cable. The LED will only come on when a connection is made to the computer or router. Is the LAN adaptor working correctly at the other end.

Does your modem also drop, or just when you use your router? If it drops when not using a router, your cable company can check your modem for you. They will not help with your router unless you got it from them. See if it stays up when you are plugged in directly to the modem.

How to Install DLink DIR-615 with only 1 port on my laptop?


Connect the modem to the router via the ethernet cable. Connect the laptop to the router by means of another ethernet cable in one of the 4 spare sockets. Switch everything off. Turn everything back on one at a time, modem first, then router, then laptop. Allow each unit to fully power up before switching the next one on. Put the installation CD in the laptop and try again. If you are using the laptop wirelessly, make sure the wireless function is switched on!

Belkin G Wireless Router Connection problem


Sounds like a faulty router or issue with the firmware if it is unaccesible, your best solution is to factory reset the device and try again.

Laptop says I have no wireless connection


You need to reset your router. It should be a reset button on the back of the router. Get a stick pin and press and hold for 30 seconds. Then after 1 minute. Unplug your cable/dsl modem and router. Plug the cable modem back in first and after 1 minute plug your router back in. Reinstall the software for your router and you should be able to connect wireless with no problem.

Please rate my response. Thanks.
