Connecting dsl modem and wireless router

I have had dsl for about 4 years. I have an agere systems AC'97 dsl modem. Just yesterday I bought a linksys wireless router, model WRT54G.

I followed all instructions on CD and have the ethernet from the modem going into the internet on the router and then in spot #1 I have another ethernet out to my laptop (which is running Windows XP Pro). The installation stops at connecting to the internet and says it cannot find the internet.

Normally I simply have the ethernet connected from the modem to my laptop and I am ready to go, no passwords or login or dial up, it's just always on.

So, I have turned on my wireless (internal in my laptop) and I can see a (g) Secured Wireless network which I believe is mine. I can even connect with an excellent signal but it will not obtain in IP address. It displays 0.0.0.0

What can I do to get the IP address assigned? I have only basic knowledge of computers so I need step-by-step instructions please.

Thanks for any help you can offer.

    I have the same problem. I have CenturyTel high speed internet and use their dsl modem and am trying to connect to a Lynksys WRT54GS router. The instructions don't show what to do with the dsl cable. I hook the modem ethernet cable to the internet port on the router and run a cable from the router to the pc and I can't connect to the internet. Can you help?

You have to go in your router's setup screen (192.168.1.1) default password is admin, then you need to select the internet connection type as PPPoE, thype your username, which could be your primary email with your ISP, and your password, which could be the last 7 digits of your home phone number. If you cannot figure out your username/password, contact your ISP.
also make sure that your DHCP server is enabled in the router setup menu.
If you want to set up your Wireless security (highly recommended) go to http://www.cas411.com/ShowArticle.aspx?ID=68 to see how to do that step by step.

Hope this helps!

My linksys WRT150N router won't recieve internet signal from my dsl modem. The router sends out a signal to my lap top, but no internet connection can be made.


Try connecting your laptop directly to the dsl modem to make sure that it is working correctly.
If the dsl modem is working correctly then:
1. Turn off the power on the router and dsl modem.
2. After about 2 minutes, turn on the dsl modem.
3. Wait another 2 minutes, then turn on the router.

Occasionally you need to do this to get them back in synch. If this doesn't work you may need to use the software utility to reconfigure the router.

I just installed dsl and want to use it with my existing router and the router doesnt want to work with the dsl ...help what do i do ???


First, make sure the dsl is working by connecting it to your computer directly.

Next, turn the router off, turn the dsl modem off, connect the dsl modem to the router. Start the dsl modem first, then start the router, then start your computer and try to connect.

I went from a ATT dsl modem to a net gear modem and i cannot get the net ger mode and linksys mode to talk to the computer


Most DSL providers use PPPoE (Point-to-Point Protocol over Ethernet) to establish Internet connections for end-users. To set up a Linksys router, you need to enable PPPoE on the router’s web-based setup page.
To setup a Linksys router with a DSL connection you need to perform four steps:
  1. Verifying Internet Connection
  2. Connecting the Devices Together
  3. Checking the LEDs
  4. Setting-up a DSL ISP on a Linksys Router
Verifying Internet Connection
Connect the Broadband modem to the computer using an Ethernet cable without the router installed and make sure that the Internet connection is active. If not, contact your Internet Service Provider.

Have SBCglobal with 2wire but want N wireless capability


Follow the dots -

2 wire DSL wire to back of DSL modem.

Ethernet cable out of DSL modem, to current router (if you have one).

Ethernet cable out of current router (if you have one) to new Wireless N router.

If you currently have a wireless G router, keep it, or, use the new Wireless G/N router alone. You will need to set up all security settings again if you remove your current router, and if the new router is N only, you will need to make sure all your wireless connecting computers have wireless N cards in them.

Connection


Hi Susie
With related to your particular issue it seems like that your broadband modem is not configured for the router. There are basically 2 types of connection. DSL and Cable modem. Verizon, ATT are DSL and comcast other providers give you a normal cable broadband connection. If its comcast make sure the cable from the comcast modem is going to the internet port in the linksys router and also make sure that there is a system connection the linksys router and the cable from the system goes to any of LAN 1, 2, 3 and 4 ports. Then reset your cable modem by using a pin and inserting to the reset hole in the modem. You could use the same step to reset your linksys router as well .If its a verizon or dsl connection you need to put normally your username and password in the router page. here is the link to how to configure linksys for your internet modem.
Here is a video as well on it?

Also post the linksys router model. your ISP modem model number and also information on how many systems are wired to the router and wireless and let me know if you need more help.

After successful instn of my linksys wireless router i cannot access to wireless online connection


Whenever you connect a different device to the cable/DSL modem the modem itself must be reset. Dont even waste a phone call to linksys. Its useless.

If you are using DSL depending on your ISP you may have to enter your account info into the router's PPoE section

Cable users should have the router set to "Obtain IP aadress automatically"

Use the reset button on the back of the router and start from scratch.
Unplug the cable/DSL modem power
Hook up your router WAN/Internet to the Cable/DSL modem Ethernet/LAN jack
Power on the Cable/DSL Modem first, wait about a minute, then power on the router.

I have a DSL router provided by frontier. I am trying to make my desktop wireless. I believe that my DSL router functions as a modem also. I purchased a Linksys wireless broadband router. I can't not...


Your router should just be that, a router. Your connection is probably like fibernet the modem is actually on the outside of the house. This may help or may not but I have a linksys wired router that works very well but you have to go to their website in order to set up the router. You may need to look through your papers and find the web address to connect to the right site.
