Re: Will not read internet connection
Make sure that your computer is able to go online directly through the modem. If your computer is able to go online through the modem, that means the modem is working fine. You will need to connect the computer to the router and the modem to the router. open the set up page of the router and change the settings of the router according to the ISP.

That is connect. You will need to connect the router to the modem with the Ethernet cable.
First connect the computer to the modem with the Ethernet cable. Make sure that you can access Internet without router.
Connect the computer to the Ethernet port 1 and modem to the Internet port on Linksys router. Open the setup page of the router. Change the Internet connection settings according to the Internet service provider. Create a wireless network and then connect your computer and other devices to the wireless network.
Plug one end of a phone cord or cable into the
modem, and plug the other end into the wall jack. (DSL users: Do not use
a DSL filter on the phone line.)
Plug one end of an Ethernet cable into the modem, and plug the other end into the wide area network (WAN) port on the router.
Plug the router into an electrical outlet.
Plug one end of an Ethernet cable into the local
area network (LAN) port on the router, and plug the other end into the
networking port on the computer that you want to connect to the
Internet. (If you are connecting wirelessly, skip this step.)
Start (or restart) the computer.
Open the Connect to the Internet wizard by clicking the Start button , clicking Control Panel, clicking Network and Internet, clicking Network and Sharing Center, clicking Set up a connection or network, and then clicking Connect to the Internet.
Read backside cable connections. "ETHERNET" connect to router "Internet" connection. Plug ALL devices into "Ethernet" dump USB cable and store away. USB may shut down Ethernet connection while connected.
f your modem isn't getting an answer from your ISP
Make sure that the cable is correctly connected to both a
phone line and your modem and that, if you're using an external modem,
it's connected to the PC.
Dial the access number for your Internet
service provider (ISP) with a regular telephone and listen for a data
tone. If you don't get one, then you have the wrong number or your ISP
If your modem is internal, skip this step. Unplug the power cord from your modem and shut down your computer. Plug the modem back in and restart your computer.
If you have another modem cable that you can use to connect
the computer to the modem, swap it with your current cable to rule out a
If your connection is refused by your ISP
Make sure your username and password are still correct. These
are usually entered through a connection program that your ISP
provided. You will probably have to retype your password, as you won't
be able to read it on-screen.
Locate the TCP/IP settings for your computer. In Windows,
these are found in the Network and Dial-up Connection control panels. In
Mac OS 9.2 and earlier, they're in the TCP/IP control panel. In Mac OS
X, they're in the Network section of System Preferences.
Check that the host name and domain name information are
correctly entered in the TCP/IP settings. This information should have
been supplied by your ISP.
If your connection is accepted but you can't load Web pages or send e-mail
Call your ISP's support number to find out if you have been affected by a service outage.
Unplug the power from your modem (whether it's telephone, DSL
or cable) for at least 10 seconds, shut down your computer, plug the
modem back in and restart your computer.
If your connection seems too slow
Set your Windows computer to MS-DOS mode: Click on Start, Programs, MS-DOS Prompt.
Type "ping" followed by an Internet domain name--for example,
www.google.com or www.yahoo.com. Macintosh users with OS X can use
Apple's Network Utility program to "ping." Earlier versions of Mac OS
don't have it built in, but freeware programs are available on the Web.
You should get a report saying how many milliseconds it took
for your "ping" to reach the destination. A computer communicating with
the Internet via a 56-KBps modem connection might typically have a
0.3-second (300-ms) or longer ping. Anything longer than 5 seconds
(5,000 ms) indicates a problem with your connection that might be the
fault of your ISP.
1 Plug the Ethernet cable into the Internet port on your wall. If you do not have Internet ports installed in your home, connect a phone line adapter to a phone line jack. The adapter makes the phone line wider so Ethernet cables can connect to it. This does not block your phone from use.
2 Plug the other end of the Ethernet cable into the Internet port on the back side of the Netgear DSL modem.
3 Connect the Netgear DSL modem to a local power source. The power plug inserts into the modem via a small port on the rear of the modem.
4 Insert a second Ethernet cable into one of the numbered ports on the back of the modem. Run the cable to your computer and plug it into the Ethernet port on the computer.
5 Look on the back end of the DSL modem for an HTTP: address. Type this into your Internet browser's search bar. The Netgear DSL modem menu appears on the screen.
6 Select how many computers are to use the modem, if you are using it with other DSL modems and set up a password (the default username and password is "admin"). Click "OK" to initiate the changes you made to the menu. You can now use your Netgear DSL modem to connect to the Internet.
Assuming that Windows has recognized the modem, and has loaded the correct device-drivers, Windows can use the modem.
You'll need to find an Internet Service Provider that provides "dial-up" service.
You'll need to have a land-line telephone (not a cell-phone) with your local telephone-company.
Connect a 4-wire cable (not an 8-wire Ethernet cable) from the "line" port on the modem to the telephone wall-jack.
Then, follow the instructions given you by your Internet Service Provider to configure your modem to connect to their dial-up server. Or, telphone them, and their Technical Support staff will guide you through the necessary configuration steps.
It's the modem, not the wireless router that is the problem.
The modem must have the proper account name & password for it to work.
Connect a computer directly into the modem (without router). The modem has an Ethernet connector. If you can't get Internet by connecting a computer directly to the modem, then you will never get the router to work.
Contact your ISP. They may not give you the account name / password, but instead do a service call to your location.
your modem is not the same...... the red/green arrows does not apply as it is for the other device
you need to log into you modem (the quick setup guide will tell you how to do this)
the status page will tell you if you are connected on adsl (there is also a link light on the modem itself which goes solid on (not flashing) when connected properly
if on the status page it is not reading as connected you need to check your logon info and check the logs to see why it is not connecting..
if it reports that it is connected, then there are a few system properties that you need to check.
open Internet properties (right click on intenet explorer, choose internet options) in the connection menu, choose "Never dial a connection" press Apply, then press "LAN settings" button and tick box "Automatically detect settings"
close Internet explorer then open internet explorer, it should spend a few seconds checking your settings then it should get out to the internet..
