The cable that comes from your modem should go to the wan port on your router, wan is wide area network, in simple words that is your internet and the modem is the one that connects you to internet.

port 1,2, 3, and 4 are lan ports, those are for computer (or printers) in you local network area (lan) or the devices that you control.

securing your device requires a bit of reading but busically to secure your wireless network you need to

1. get into your router's configuration page, (the page looks like this butit's not this one as this is an emulation) see your router's manual to know how to access your configuration page for your router
2. go in to the wireless setup section
3. change the ssid (router or network name) to another unique name (ex. yournamenetwork)
4. configure wireless encryption (wep, wpa, wpa2), I suggest that you set it to wpa2 as it is the most secure one)
5. configure a passphrase or key,

this key (step 5) along with the encryption method you select in step 4 will have to match when you configured this 2 settings in any computer or device that you may want to connect wirelessly to your router or your computer and router won't be able to talk to each other (connect)

details of how you can do this are found in your manual (here)

if you have any doubts on the points described above, first review your manual and feel free to post back and we'll try to help as needed.

Hello.

Connect the MODEM (device you received from your Internet Serivce Provider that gets the Internet signal) to the router via the WAN port. WAN stands for Wide Area Network and this gets you out to the Modem and then to the Internet.

Ports 1 and higher are for computers and network printers that you can directly connect to your LAN - Local Area Network.

To secure your connection, you will need to configure your router and you will need to connect your laptop to the router (either wireless or via one of the numbered ports on the back of the router), open a web browser and enter the IP address of the router.

Since you did not put the model of the router, I cannot give you specifics on how to secure the connection. You can go to the D-Link web site, find your router, download the manual and it will walk you thru the settings.

Basically, you will be entering a WEP key (a set of letters and numbers that you know) to allow only wireless computers that have this key.

I am trying to connect my new router to my laptop,but the instructions say i should connect my pc to the internet by connecting my ethernet cable to the router.my problem is i have only one connection and...


Modem <-- Ethernet cable --> WAN port on router

LAN port #1 on router <--- Ethernet cable --> network-port on desktop computer

LAN port #2 on router <-- Ethernet cable --> network-port on laptop computer

If the router has built-in "wireless" capability, then use the desktop computer's connection to the router to "configure" the wireless adapter, i.e., pick an SSID, and establish a password, and then your laptop computer can use the SSID/password to connect "wirelessly" to the router.

Asus WL 520gu can't connect internet


1, connect your wireless router with cable to your laptop,
2. Login into your Asus-WL520gu and setup your wireless how you want it to run." do not bother with putting your username settings in there"
3. In your Asus-WL-520gu after setting up your wireless turn the DHCP off in it.
4. Now connect the cable that you have connected to your laptop to your router instead of your laptop.
""You should now be able to connect to the wireless with your settings. and connect anything ells you want to the other 4 ports on the back of you wireless router"" note: do not connect anything to the WAN port as it is used for DSL modems; and not Routers with ADSL modem.
when connecting a router to a router - the one that is connecting you to the internet needs DHCP turned on because it is the one that will be giving you IPs and Gateway settings - the other router such as wireless router after setting it up needs its DHCP turned off - other wise you will have 2 routers trying to do the same thing with ip's and gateways. And you should never connect a modem router to the WAN port as it is a modem router and NOT just a DSL-modem. The WAN port is intended for DSL-modems only. Not only consumers but also many technicians make that mistake

When i hook it up i get the laptop to pick up the signal but the desktop will not go online


on the hind side of the modem how many ports do you see
my guess one port slightly seperated and named INTERNET or WAN and four more ports numbered 1,2,3,4

now connect the network cable from the modem to the WAN / INTERNET port and connect the laptopand PC to the ports1,2

now check to see if there is connection to only on Laptop or both

but if you have conection to only the laptop/PC connected to port1 then try this small trick

move the laptop to port 3 and in port 1 connect the cable from the modem which was connected to the WAN / INTERNET port

and u r set to go

Configure Modem Echolife HG520s With WRT54G OR WRE54G


Not sure if I understand properly but your router should have a WAN port or an "Internet" port

your modem should be connected to it and your PC should be on any of the LAN port

I tried to reset my security password and now it won't work.


Make sure you have the physical connection connected properly.

-Modem should be connected to the Internet/WAN port of the router.
-Your laptop must be connected to port 1 of the router as well.
-Make sure you can go online hardwired to the router.

Then configure the wireless settings of the router by accessing the router setup page http://192.168.2.1, change the wireless settings.

Connecting a wireless router to Tiscalli broadband connection


  1. USB modem is connecting a PC USB port with a DSL phone line: CANNOT be connected to a ROUTER LAN (ethernet NOT USB port).
  2. Wireless ROUTER is NOT a modem and it CANNOT connect the Internet (or WAN) LAN port to any "phone line"
  3. Connect the Router Internet (WAN) port to Modem (you need a LAN MODEM = a modem with a LAN/ETHERNET port)
  4. Be sure your internet is running before strting ROUTER configuration with Router Company CD

first you connect the wire from the wall into the wan port in the back of your dsl modem. next you connect the outsource wire from your dsl modem into the wan port on your router. next put another rj45 wire into the number one port in the back of your router and the other to your computer. put another wire into number 2 and then to your xbox. everything need to be unplugged while you are hooking it up. once done power cycle...meaning plug up the dsl and wait for the lights to stay lit. then the router. the start your computer. if you want to go wireless just get a usb wireless network adaptor and there you are

Hi there!

I want to help you out. I have some questions to ask you first:

1. What brand and model are your wireless router and laptop?
2. Does the laptop have a built-in wireless card or you installed one?
3. If it's has its built-in wireless card, check the wireless switch of the laptop. ICheck if it is on or off (some laptops sometimes has an on/off switch)
4. Check if the wireless light on your router is on (it's sometimes refered to "WLAN")
5. How many wired & wireless computers do you have and their operating system?

Your physical connections are correct. BTW, can you also specify what port from the modem is going to the router? Some routers have 1 port named "Internet or WAN" and 4 ports for "Ethernet." Check if the modem is connected to the "Internet or WAN" port.

Can not get my adsl modem to connect through ASUS wireless router


it could be the modem and the router has the same ip address. the asus router has an ip of 192.168.1.1, check if the dynalink modem has an ip of 192.168.1.x. if so, change the router's ip to 192.168.x.x (e.g. 192.168.2.1) then see if you'll be able to connect to the internet while the modem is connected to the wan port of the router
