About your question. in order to have a wireless connection., your router is required to have antennas. just like the picture here. they are called wireless broadband routers. they are not totally wireless since they still have to be connected to the phone line.

the idea of wireless is the connection from the laptop or desktop going to the router as no rj45 cable is needed.

since your recent ISP was cable, you had some converters right? i am not really familiar with converters of cable internet connection since we dont have that here in the phil. (in my area).

but what im telling you is that related to your question, you will need a wireless router to give signal...and a desktop or laptop that are able to receive signal from the router via wifi card, wifi usb...etc.

hope you got that.
thanks

Your Internet service provider is comcast cable company.
You need to open the setup page of the router and change the Internet connection settings manually.

I went from a ATT dsl modem to a net gear modem and i cannot get the net ger mode and linksys mode to talk to the computer


Most DSL providers use PPPoE (Point-to-Point Protocol over Ethernet) to establish Internet connections for end-users. To set up a Linksys router, you need to enable PPPoE on the router’s web-based setup page.
To setup a Linksys router with a DSL connection you need to perform four steps:
  1. Verifying Internet Connection
  2. Connecting the Devices Together
  3. Checking the LEDs
  4. Setting-up a DSL ISP on a Linksys Router
Verifying Internet Connection
Connect the Broadband modem to the computer using an Ethernet cable without the router installed and make sure that the Internet connection is active. If not, contact your Internet Service Provider.

Computer repair tech said Linskey wireless caused internet prob


If you are using DSL as your internet connection there is a timeout period that could be setup in the linksys.

In order to change this you need to log into your router and on check on the setup page. You see the timeout option.

Check with your linksys manual for detailed instructions for logging into the unit. If you dont have it, you can always get it from their website.

Switched internet service providers now the router doesn't work


You might want to check the routers settings to make sure that it is not configured to use PPOE connection which is for DSl and the Broadband connection. You can find the routers address by searching google. Linksys uses 192.168.1.1. You can always try resetting the router by pushing the reset button usually found by the power plug in the back.

Connection


Hi Susie
With related to your particular issue it seems like that your broadband modem is not configured for the router. There are basically 2 types of connection. DSL and Cable modem. Verizon, ATT are DSL and comcast other providers give you a normal cable broadband connection. If its comcast make sure the cable from the comcast modem is going to the internet port in the linksys router and also make sure that there is a system connection the linksys router and the cable from the system goes to any of LAN 1, 2, 3 and 4 ports. Then reset your cable modem by using a pin and inserting to the reset hole in the modem. You could use the same step to reset your linksys router as well .If its a verizon or dsl connection you need to put normally your username and password in the router page. here is the link to how to configure linksys for your internet modem.
Here is a video as well on it?

Setting Up a Wireless Network


You can still use your existing Linksys router with your cable modem. In fact the router your have is designed to work with DSL/Cable Broadband connections.

1. Make sure to properly connec the devices in your network. Modem will be connected to the Internet port of the router. Then, laptop will be connected to one of the 4 Ethernet ports of the router. For initial setup of your router with modem, you need to hardwire laptop to the router.
2. Press and hold reset at the back of the router for about 15 seconds.
3. After 15 seconds turn off the router and then turn off the modem. Wait for a minute.
4. Power on modem and wait for the lights to be ready.
5. When modem lights are on, turn on router.
6. There should be 4 lights on. Power should be steady green. Internet, WLAN and Ethernet port.
7. Checked if you have Internet connectivity on your laptop while it is wired to the router.
8. If Internet is working, disconnect laptop from wired connection to the router and check available wireless network that laptop can detect.
9. The default wireless network name that the Linksys router broadcasts is "linksys". Connect to it which is an unsecured wireless network.
10. Once you are successfully connected, check Internet.

Hope this helps!

Linksys router not performing


has it worked before? if yes, try to power cycle everything. turn off everyhting then turn on the modem first, then the router, then the computer/s.
if you have power cycled everything already and you still can't access the internet using the router,
- access the router's setup page by logging to http://192.168.1.1 (leave the username blank and the default password is "admin")
- if you're using a cable connection, set the connection type to "automatic configuration - dhcp" and enable the mac address clone
- if you're using a dsl connection and you have a username and password from your isp, set the connection type to "pppoe" then enter the complete username (ex. username@comcast.net) and password given by your isp.
- check the "status" tab of the router and see if there's an internet ip and dns, if so, you should be able to connect to the internet

hope this'll help you.

ciao!
