Hi,

To my knowledge, the Linksys BEFSR81 originally came with a quick install/set-up CD. Pls reconnect your modem and PC as originally hooked before the Linksys BEFSR81 was installed and verify that you can connect to the internet. Upon verification of Internet connectivity, pop in the CD, follow on-screen instructions and only hook up the router when instructed to do so.

Should for some reason the CD is not available or you can not run the install/set-up wizard, pls postback.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back as requested, how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

I can connect to the router but the router cant connect to the internet. If i directly connect the internet connection to my pc, it has internet connections, so the router is not connecting to the...


Firstly please check the connections. The modem should be connected to the "Internet" port on the back of the router. And the computer can be connected to any of the 4 ports of the router. Checked the lights. They should be steady. If you have a cable connection (cable modem) than you can connect directly to the internet. Else if you are using a DSL connection than you need to configure the router according.


**If this works please rate else let me know in case of further help.**

Netgear power is connected, but internet is not


If the router has no power you cannot connect to the internet.
If you have an internet connection then you are connected to someone else's router.

The wireless internet connection wont work. we previously had a wireless connection and now it wont register. we lost the connection completely and it doesnt show up on the list of internet connections....


Try turning off the router for 30 secs, then power it up again.
Then try connecting a LAN cable from the computer to the router and see if you can connect to the Internet.
If you can connect to the Internet then -
With the LAN cable open a browser and type in the configuration URL and check the Wireless settings, then check and/or the wireless card settings (it should have the router's SSID and encryption settings etc.)
Also install the latest wireless card driver.
Then test the wireless and Internet connection. If this doesn't work -
Next connect the computer with a LAN cable to the cable or DSL modem to see if you can connect to the Internet.
If you cannot get an Internet connection with the LAN cable, contact your ISP and get them to test the connection to your modem.
If the modem and Internet is OK and you still cannot get a wireless connection then the problem could be a faulty wireless router.

I have a NetGear Wireless Router which wont connect to internet.


Verify that you can connect to the internet without the router by hooking the cable from the dsl modem to your computers NIC.

If you can connect to the internet that way the problem is with the router. press and hold the reset button on the back of the router to reset it to the factory settings. (this just makes it easy to determine the problem) if this corrects the problem you can setup your security again

Internet


Start from ground zero
1. Is everything Powered up?
2. Check you internet connection
a. Can you directly connect to the internet by connecting a computer to the device providing the internet?
If this is good, then do this for later. ( it may not be needed but is good to have)
go to 'Start' -> 'Run' ->CMD[Enter]
Now you have a DOS box.
here
type CD \[Enter]
type IPCONFIG /all > ipdata.txt[Enter]
exit[Enter]
This copies the working IP Config that may be needed later.
Now connect in this order Internet connection to WAN Connection of router
Then connect one of the the LAN Connections of the router to
the working computer.
Turn off everything for 15 min.
No I am not kidding. Technical reason: Clear the ARP Table back at the ISP.
Restart the router then the computer.
Still no internet?
More details will be needed.

Wont connect to the internet


Try this, assuming you're using Internet Explorer: Go to Tools > Internet Options and select the Connections tab. Does it show your old dial-up connection in the list? If so highlight it and click on REMOVE. Close IE and re-open it. It should now use the Belkin LAN connection.
