Re: does not detect the router
Are you trying to set up router ?
You can set up your router manually, without the CD. 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.

Locate the reset button on the back of the unit near the ac jack. Press and hold for 15 seconds. That should reset everything including the password. You will then need to reconfigure - leave the password blank initially then change as desired after it logs you in
Go to device manager and go to network connections. uninstall the wireless device, keep the drivers and then reboot. When the computer reboots it will detect the hardware which is your wireless adapter and install it along with the appropriate driver. If it asks to search windows update, allow it. reboot and see if you can get on the internet. If you can't send me a message through this site and we will try something else.
we ll start with the physical connections.
1.take ethernet cable n connect one end of the cable to the modem and the other
end to the isolated port on the router(internet port) and then connect the
computer and your router with other cable(any lan port).refer the chart on the
router to distinguish the internet and lan port.
2.check the light status on the modem and router.
router lite status-power,alphabet i lite,wireless lite(lollipop lite) and the
number light lit up(depends on the port eg port no:1 connected number 1 light
3.check the ip address and default gateway address.
steps:In windows(xp,2000 etc),click on start->click on run->in the search
tab type cmd->dos prompt window opens,type ipconfig and u ll get ip address
and default gateway address(192.168.1.1 or 192.168.0.1).note it
In vista,start->in the search tab type cmd->dos prompt window type
ipconfig->u ll get the address as specified earlier.
4.open the browser,type the default gateway address in the address bar and
press enter.The login window ll ask for username and password. username-admin
5.You ll enter the netgear smart wizard page.Run the setup wizard at the left
side (blue screen).select yes and detect the type of connection.
6.If it is a cable modem-dynamic ip detected and click next.check whether the
dns address is given automatically from isp and click apply.Then click on basic
settings under setup menu and in that window in the router mac address select
"use computer mac address "option and click on apply.Now click on
router status under maintenance menu and check the ip address in internet
port(it should not be 0.0.0.0) and in lan port(eg 192.168.1.2 or 192.168.0.2).
7.If its a dsl modem-the type of connection ll be detected as pppoe.click
next.configure your router with the username and password provided by the isp
and click on apply.The router ll save the settings and then check the internet
port and lan port
address as given in the previous step.
8.Now we have to configure the router for wireless settings(both modems same
*click wireless settings under set up menu.
*In that page enter
. mode:g and b
In security options select wep and key1 give your telephone number so that you
wont forget the password.CLICK APPLY.we have secured the n/w.
9.scan and connect to the network.
For windows vista-start->connect to->select the network name(netgear2)and
click connect->it ll ask for password,enter it(telephone no).you ll
successfully connected.Now disconnect the cable and try going online
For xp-start->control panel->network connections->right click on
wireless network connection->select the network and configure.
10.you ll be able to go online wirelessly if there is any problem delete the
I have given you all the steps with examples to help you configure the
router.hope you ll fix the issue and further assisstance im ready to help u but
pls give details about your operating system,type of modem and no of computers
so that it ll easy for me to troubleshoot.rate me if i have helped you.Thank you. Have a good day
First you have to check on your laptop that your wi fi network drivers are installed correctly.
Also check it is enabled.
Also check wi fi switch on laptop is turn on.
Check its ip addreses and subnet amsk and gateway is proeprly.
hi! I will be more than glad to assist u in this concern. I encounter that problem as well. I have a dlink as well. I follow the cd installation and it wont detect the modem or internet. but if the computer is connected to the modem it works..what i did. i didnt follow the cd installation, I set it up manual by typing at the url of your brower, 192.168.0.1 that is the ip add of the router and it will ask the username and password, by default the username is admin and the password, just leave it blank..in the setup page, select on manual internet connection setup.. there is an option for dhcp-which is auto detect, static ip or pppoe. but first check what kind of setting u have with ur isp, if u are using a username and password, u have to select the pppoe, if the isp provide gave u a static ip address u have to select static.. to know your ip address settings, click start, run and type cmd and it will show dos prompt, from there type ipconfig/all, it will list the ip address, subnetmask, default gateway, dns server.. I hope this will solve ur concern..
Hallo, I have a few question to help you resolve your problem 1. Did you ever connect easy to the router? 2. The router did you configured good, every router has and page like and internet page from where you configure and add how many addresses to connect even which ip or mac of the network card. 3. the power of the network is strong/good are you far away from it ?
Have a nice day and hope by your answers to help you.
Your Belkin router is normally configured to get a dynamic IP Add from your Internet provider unless otherwise configured. Most ISP's network where clients/subscribers connect (through DSL) has a DHCP server that hands out this IP adds. If your router keeps on changing its WAN IP add, it may presumably be because: 1. Your router keeps on rebooting or powering on/off and everytime it turns on, it is given a new IP add; 2. Your ISP's DHCP server keeps on renewing its lease on the IP add given to your router.
Corrective measures would entail: a. Do a full hard reset of your router and go through the installation setup again. Of course this would revert all settings/configuration to factory default; and/or b. Contact your ISP and explain your concern.
In some cases, the router's MAC address has an issue that the ISP's DHCP is keeping a hard time recognizing it. this can be corrected with a firmware update.
Hope this be of help/idea. Pls post back how things tunrs up or should you need additional information.
I don't recommend using the software as most of the time, it either prevents a connection to the router or a connection to the internet. Sometimes both. (I've seen it.)
Instead, use Windows XP's built-in Wireless Zero Configuration (Or use Vista's built-in wireless network detection.) As long as your drivers for your wi-fi adapter are properly installed, you shouldn't have problems using the built-in connection methods.
As for the software... All it's really there to do is help you to bypass the default security of the router in order to get initially connected. I've found the software to be nothing but troublesome in the long-run.
My recommendation is to remove the Linksys software. If you are not able to connect to the router after that, use an ethernet cable to attach the PC to the router so that you can configure the router. Set up wireless security that way.
Once you have configured the wireless security, you should know what your encryption key is. (Write it down for yourself.) Use the built-in wi-fi configuration tools in Windows to seek out the wireless router and connect to it. Type in your key when asked for it and you shouldn't have any problems.
You may consider using the RESET button on the back of the router if you continue to have issues.
One other problem I've often run into is using DSL with the Linksys WRT54G routers. Some DSL modems just aren't compatible with the WRT54G routers. Primarily the older DSL modems.
For example... I had a client recently who had bought the WRT54GS router. He just could NOT get it connected to his DSL modem. Even using the Linksys software. It just wouldn't use the router as a legit gateway device. (He was connected by ethernet and could get into the router's config interface.)
I eventually advised him to contact Qwest and have them send him a much newer version of their DSL modems. (The one he had was a DINOSAUR.) They sent him a new one. Once he got the newer one, we were able to get it networked right away. WITHOUT any extra software. Just using Windows.
Also be sure to check the configuration of your wi-fi adapter in your laptop. Make sure that it is not configured with an old configuration and is set to automatically get an IP from your router. Don't use a static IP while trying to troubleshoot your problem. Let the router configure the IP of your laptop for you. It could just be something as simple as the DNS servers aren't configured properly. (You can find your internet IP and DNS servers in the router's status page, by the way.)
Let me know if you have more details that would be relevant to the situation.
