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.

For that you have to change channel type in wireless settings of router.

This is only a problem with the firmware of your modem/router that you need to update it, because a network device like a modem and router that is working fine for severla years and suddenly stop working you just need to update the firmware of it and it should be working fine again, to update the firmware of the modem/router just need to call the manufacturer for that....

Hope that helps.........

Hi my friend has a belkin g802.11g router for his laptp and only 3 of the lights are on the etreme right isnt working his pc is telling him he has connection to the internet but its not letting him connect...


the router must be connected properly to the pc and set up to function properly first. Usually the pc is plugged into port 1 while the internet connection is plugged into the main "Green" labeled port which is spaced further away than the other 4 ports. If that's done properly then you have a few software issues depending on the ISP he is using. For instance, Road Runner doesn't really care what you use, however Yahoo DSL has issues that must be configured to make the modem communicate properly with the router. Does he see the wireless network with his laptop? Is he using 2 pc's, one hard wired to router and a laptop or just the laptop? If he's using just a laptop then you have a specific setup procedure that must be followed, contact the mfg of the modem, belkin's usually pretty good with walking you through the setup.

hi klb19,
how far are you from the router? have you tried using your sons computer near your area? is your laptop wifi capable?

click start,run and type in "services.msc" without quotes
look for wireless zero configuration and see if the status is started,if not, right click on it and select start,

right click your wireless icon at the lower right corner of your desktop and select view wireless connections. did it work?

let me know if it works. :)

If you have an extra PCI slot on your PC, you can purchase a wireless card for it, and it is fairly simple to install. You can also purchase USB based wireless adapters for your desktop. This also assumes that the router and the PC are not too far apart, but as long as you could get a signal using say a laptop, you should also be able to get it using the PCI or USB adapter.

Good Luck,

WiFi


if you want to use your wireless in the home you will need to arrange an internet service provider (ISP) ADSL service,then wait until you have been advised that the line has been activated by them,you will pay a monthly charge for this service.

you will also need a wireless modem/router to receive the data from the phone line, then send it on to your computer wirelessly,
the modem/router will need to be set-up with your user name and password ,in the first instance usually provided by the ISP.

hope this helps you
please rate my efforts as that is our reward
