    I'm able to get internet connecetion if I plug a cable into the modem or the router.

  • elijahfree79 May 04, 2010

    No I mean router or modem. the router has ports to plug in an ethernet cable. I am not sure where to go to releas and renew the settings for the WAN config tab. Thanks for the help I need all i can get.

Hello, the local only means you have connection to the router but the router does not have connection to either the modem. Did you try resetting the modem?
Turn off both devices (router and modem) turn the router on first. Then turn the modem. Wait a minute or so and the router should get the IP from the modem and it should work.
If you still have no luck, it means there's something wrong with either the modem or the actual connection from the ISP.
I hope this helps.

    "I'm able to get internet connecetion if I plug a cable into the modem or
    the router." I'm assuming you meant into the modem not the router. OK, then you have to login to your router (that's the default ip) and under WAN configuration tab, release and renew the connection. Let me know if it worked.

    Ok, let's try this. First, make sure that this switch is in the normal (AUTO) position (at the bottom of the router).
    On the bottom hold down the “INIT” button for three seconds.
    This will reset them to factory defaults. They
    will take 30-60 seconds to reboot afterwards.
    - You can also log in to your router and under advance configuration you will se the Initialize button - that will also reset your settings.
    1. Power down the Cable or DSL modem and the computer which will be used to
    configure the AirStation router.
    2. Plug the Cable or DSL modem’s Ethernet cable into the AirStation’s WAN port.
    Initially, you may need to unplug this cable from your computer, hub or other router.
    3. Plug the provided Ethernet cable into one of the four LAN ports on the AirStation and
    plug the other end into your computer’s Ethernet adapter (NIC).
    4. Important: turn everything on in the correct order!! Power on your cable or DSL modem
    and wait one full minute, then power on the AirStation and wait one full minute, and
    finally power on the computer which will be used to configure the AirStation.
    Log in to (default router ip) the username is root and just click connect.(password is blank).
    Under WAN Configuration tab Normally, the
    internet connection wizard will set this for
    you if you have a cablemodem or DSL. If
    you’re not sure what to choose, perform
    Easy Setup. Or click on Aquirer an IP adress automatically from a DHCP server. (this should be your modem)
    And once you are sure you can get online. Then log in and configure your wireless/security settings, admin password, etc.
    This is as basic we can get. If you followed this correctly and still no luck with your router, please let me know.

What does the LAN do on the modem

There are two halves to a router. The internet (WAN) side a local network (LAN) side.

The term WAN means Wide Area Network and generally refers to the internet.

The term LAN means Local Area Network. That would be for the computers that are in your office or home.

The LAN connects your computer to your printers or to other computers.

I hope that answers your question!

Lan internet


the easiest way to setup internet on the laptop, is to go to control panel, and launch the network setup wizard. this will enable you to setup a new network, and scan for a local area network connection. this will also give you access to the troubleshooter. to solve any connection problems or issues, should there be any. If your using a wireless method. Your PC must also be able to transmit/receive wireless Signals. If hardwired you,ll have to use the network setup wizard, as this will auto determine I.P And any other DNS settings et,c.

Hope this Helps Mike @ compurepair.

Cannot connect to router wirelessly.

Yes that's it.. try changing some wireless settings on your router like the ssid or wireless network name channel use channel 1, 6 or 11 then try to connect to your wireless network.
