Hi Bradius,

I suggest you update your P660 gateway's firmware to the latest version, seeing as how the latest firmware has the latest driver for the P660 wireless module. The new firmware can be downloaded at

After updating the firmware of your gateway, I suggest you update your PC's wireless network adapter's driver to the latest version (if you can supply me with the make and model I'll be happy to direct you to the site where you can download the driver).

If you still have problems connecting the PCs after you have updated as per above guidelines, I suggest looking into how to map the gateway's LAN port 1 and wireless LAN port to PVC (Private Virtual Connection) 1at

Cable and wireless question


Not possible, since the "input" to the 2WIRE modem is a 4-wire telephone-line, not an 8-wire Ethernet cable.

Instead, spend about $40 to buy a D-Link Wireless G modem, and connect its WAN port to the cable-modem, and connect up to 4 Ethernet cables to "wired" computers, and configure the "wireless" component of the D-Link router.

It lost its LAC and right now my computer is running on the wireless even though it's not wireless.


Your router's cable is connected in the wrong connection.

1. Remove the cable from the wireless connector
2. Insert it into one of the ports of the router that has LAN not WAN.
3. You will be able to connect your wireless and wired computers to the router.

This could have blue for WAN or Yellow for WAN and then the rest can have yellow for the 4 PCs to connect.

Internet no longer working, but internal network is fine.


i agree with all the above.. it's definately clear as mud how the network is designed and or funtioning. The machines connected to the wireless d-link router.. are they via cat5 inthe wired ports or wireless ? is the server the machine thats connecting to the switch and wiress router and modem? i'd say reset all switches modems routers and machines.. shut them all down.. then fire the cable modem, then the wireless router then the desktop switch then the server, the workstations and the one lonely wireless.. run "ipconfig /all" on all machines and if they aren't all sharing common ips and access, provide the results here for further investigation.

Please can you tell me how to setup a huawei EchoLife HG520b Broadband wireless router. Thanks


You need to follow the below steps to enable you to go wireless, connect your PC and Router via the Ethernet cable.

1. Open any web browser and in the address bar type 192.168.1.1 and press Enter.
2. You will now get a login screen appear, the username and password to access the router is " admin "
3. Click on Basic then Wireless LAN.
4. Make sure Access Point is set to enable.
5. SSID is your Network name and can be changed to anything you like.
6. Make sure Broadcast SSID is enabled.
7. Set Authentication type to WPA
8. Set a password in the Pre-Shared key section between 8-64 letters/numbers long-this is your wireless password, keep this safe as only you have access to this password.
9. Click submit at the bottom of the page.

Your router has now been setup for wireless and is protected by WPA security.

To Allow your PC to connect wireless:

1. Remove your ethernet cable and turn on your wireless on your PC.
2. In the bottom right hand corner of your PC right click on your wireless icon and select "view wireless networks in range"
3. You should see your wireless connection because the SSID should be displayed.
4. Right click on your network and enter the wireless password and then click connect (If right clicking brings up no options then double left click).
5. You should now be connected in a wireless state.

To Allow your MAC to connect wireless:

Please first update the MAC, click the apple top right and update software.

1. Remove your ethernet cable and turn on your wireless on your MAC.
2. Top right click on the airport icon.
3. You should see your wireless connection because the SSID should be displayed.
4. Click on your network and enter the WPA password and then click connect.
5. You should now be connected in a wireless state and the airport icon will turn black.

If you have not yet entered your ppp details (username and password for internet connection) select basic and then wan settings you can change all the settings for your connection here

Hope this helps

Limited or no connectivity to the internet. my setup: the telephone port is approx 30m from where i need internet access. Originally I had a dlink wireless router set up but was connected via cable, now...


On which port of the D-link router did you plug the WRT160N router?

Do this setup.

Disconnect the WRT160N from D-link.

Connect a computer to port 1 of the WRT160N. Access the setup page by typing 192.168.1.1 on the address bar. you may need to type in the username and password for WRT160N. on the setup page Change the LAN IP address from 192.168.1.1 to 192.168.2.1. save the settings.

Connect a cable from port 1,2,3 or 4 of the D-link router to the Internet port of the WRT160N. turn off everything then turn them on starting from cable modem>D-link >WRT160N then computer.

You should be able to access the internet.

Since you stated you are attempting to ( "hook" it up to my laptop )
you are essentialy telling me that you are attempting to connect your laptop up to the router using cat5 cable.

for a cat5 cable connection
1. connect the cable to port 1 of the router , NOT THE ( connect to cable modem port )
2. connect the other end of the cable to your notebook
3. boot up your notebook


for a wireless connection from your laptop to the router
you will need to follow the proceedures for connecting to a wireless network

as shown here on youtube.

I've installed my wireless router, modelwrt54g2v1, and the yellow ethernet cable is still connected to my laptop, once I remove it I have no connection?


The yellow cable (CAT5) is giving you your internet connection
you will need to follow some steps:
1) Access the routers GUI (usualy by going to a web-page in your Internet explorer EG 192.168.0.1 check the manual)
2) make sure that wireless is enabled on the router + DHCP is enabled
3) at this stage set wireless security here as well (to stop unwanted use of your broadband and people hacking your PC)
4) make sure that the laptop wireless is switched on, sometimes there is both a physical on/off switch and a software/keyboard enable/disable button, disconnect the Yellow network cable
5) go to control panel:network connections
6) right click on the wireless connections icon and then view available wireless networks
7) if you see your network then highlight it and click connect
8) enter the security password (if any) which you set in step3 above.

let me know how you get on

After hooking up wireless router model #WRT54G2, all I get is a error code that my either net cable is unplugged when it is connected per installation CD (checked it numerous times) Is my cable defective?


The problem is one of three things. The order of replacement is as follows:

1. Bad Cable
2. Bad Network jack connection
3. Bad router

When items are functioning properly you will have connect LEDs on the network card and the router. Also ensure that you TCP/IP setting are set to obtain an IP address automatically
