I was given a "Wireless-N Home Router Model #WRT150N as a gift. I have an Aser Aspire 7520-5971 laptop. I have arrange for Road Runner service to my home to which I plan to use the above defined router. Do you see any problems using the combination? Also do you have any suggestions or things I should know to make the installation easier? The Router was purchased from Circuit City on 10/15/07. Any help would be appreciated!

Hi Chuck,
Sounds like you got a pretty nice Linksys router, and I don't see any compatibility issues for it's use with Road Runner's modem or your computers that will connect to it. Your router came with an installation guide with step by step diagrams and if you follow the directions you should be just fine.
Note that the "N" router will work with previous/slower WiFi such as wireless "B" & "G", but if you want computers on this network to utilize the speed that the "N" router provides they will have to have "N" cards or dongles.
I hope this helps, and Good luck.

1- in order of what connects to what
1- linksys connects to road runner modem. Should be a network connection on the back of the router that says uplink. This connects to the road runner`s wired port on the back of the unit.
Vonage phone will/should connect through the wireless section an in your personal wifi connection when you get the router wireless setup. Name your wireless something that other people are not using and then tell vonage phone to connect to that network.
Hope this helps

My wireless connection is running super slow AND I cant access the router via 192.168.1.1


You can try to reset your router
Reset the Linksys WRT150N wireless home router if you are experiencing connection issues or have forgotten your customized router login information. Resetting the Linksys WRT150N will erase your Internet connection settings, wireless security preferences and all other personal settings from the router. This procedure will restore the WRT150N back to its factory state.
Instructions
1 Locate the "Reset" button on the back panel of the router. The button is situated to the right of the Ethernet ports and to the left of the power port.
2 Press and hold the "Reset" button.
3 Release the "Reset" button after approximately five seconds. The device resets

Tips & Warnings
Use the Linksys WRT150N setup CD-ROM to run the setup wizard and reconfigure the router after the reset.

Need help, router will not connect. The internet service road runner is working when I plug directly in computer but through the router it won't activate. This router has been working for over a year now...


Try unplugging the power from Road Runner modem and disconnect the computer or router. Then only plug in the power to the router and plug in the power to the modem.

If this does not work, try resetting the modem's config to factory defaults by sticking a paperclip end into the reset button hole in the back while powering it up. hold the buttin in for atleast 15 seconds while the router restarts. then retry the first suggestion.

Linksysy asks for a network key (Wep key or WPA key)


1. Using a computer that is wired to the router, access the router's setup page by typing 192.168.1.1 on the address field of your browser.
2. By default there is no username and password is admin.
3. Once you're in the setup page, click wireless then there is a sub tab there called wireless security.
4. You will find there the wireless key that is enabled in your router.

Not working on my 2nd computer


I am going to assume Vista is the first OS and both machines are windows computers and you are accessing the cable service through a DI-524 wireless router. There are many issues that can relate to your problem. First does your cable provider require you to logon to access the internet. If so, try using each computer individually (with the other one logged off and shutdown) with the existing wireless connection. If this works both machines are configured correctly for the router and the issue appears to be dealing with the logon possibly having it performed by the router if possible. Second if that does not work -- on each machine bring up a command prompt window (Start > All Programs > Accessories > Command Prompt) and type ipconfig and press enter. There may be multiple local area connections but look for one with a 192.168.?.? address on each machine. The first question mark should be the same on both machines and the second different. If this works both machines have connected to the router and we are seeking another issue. If this is not true one machine has a configuration problem and cannot access the wireless router (probably the Windows ZP computer from you description). We will need to diagnose further once you answer the above questions.
