Question about Linksys Wireless-G WRT54G Router

I can't get my router to connect to the phone jack

I just moved apartments. I have plugged my router into the computer but I can't plug it into the wall jack because the end is two big. If I use a normal phone cord in the wall jack, it is too small for the router.

It seems the wall jack you are trying to plug your router into is just a regular phone line. Routers require an Ethernet port, which has a larger plug, to connect to a network such as the Internet.
What you seem to need is a cable modem from your Internet provider - usually your cable company. The cable modem will have the Ethernet port you need to connect your router and your computer to the Internet.
If you need further help, comment back with any questions.

Who is your Internet service provider ?
You said that there is a connection in the wall. It is suitable for the hpone connection.
I believe you need a modem.
If you connect the computer to that wall connection, does it work ?
I think not.
You can not connect the computer directly to the phone connection. It will go to the modem.
The Linksys routr requires modem or Ethernet connection from ISP.

I have just moved into a new house, my computer & fax machine is in a room with no telephone jack. i have cordless phones but the extnetion phone has no outlet jack. is there a solution without h


Hello friend, you seem to be talking about how to get broadband / Internet to your computer.
Sounds like you need to buy a wi-fi router and install it at the phone company connection. This will then 'broadcast' your Broadband Internet all over the house. You also need to buy a 'Wi-Fi dongle' (check on Ebay) which you plug in to a USB port on your PC. Install the above two as per their Instructions and you should be fine.

Wirelessrouterstepbystep learn howto setup


1
Choose your equipment wisely. There are many types of wireless routers, and they are not all created equal. Some of the lower end wireless routers are very basic, and will limit your home network to speed of 56 megabits per second (Mbps.) This is really not a very fast speed. If your access points will be very far apart, consider getting a router with ultra-range abilities, or a dual-band router. Also, while you're at the store, be sure to pick up one wireless access point for each computer you intend to connect to your network.

2
Remove your DSL or cable modem from the power supply.

3
Remove the Ethernet cable which connects your DSL or cable modem to your computer from the computer, but leave it plugged into the back of your modem. This cable looks something like a phone cord on the ends, but with much larger connectors and a larger, round cable. Do not remove the phone cord from the modem which is plugged into the telephone jack on your wall.

4
Connect the loose end of the Ethernet cable to the internet port on the back of your router. This port should be clearly marked, and will probably be a different color than the other ports.

5
Reconnect your modem to the power source. To protect it, plug it into the same surge protector which guards your computer.

6
Plug the Ethernet cable which came with your router into the Ethernet connector on the network card on the back of your computer. Then plug the other end into one of the Ethernet network ports on the back of the router.

7
Plug the router's power cord into the power supply. This device should also be protected by a surge protector. If you run out of plugs, it is well worth ten or twenty dollars to invest in a second surge protector.

8
Check the lights on the front or top of your router. The power light should be on, as well as the internet light, the wireless light, the security light, and a light for one of your Ethernet network connections. Check to see if any lights are off, flashing, or red or amber in color. This will indicate that the router is having a problem. If any lights are not on as they should be, check your cable connections to ensure that they are securely connected. Repeat the setup steps if necessary.

9
Install the software provided by your wireless router's manufacturer.
This is it you are done
Thanks .

No ethernet connection on my computer thats hooked up directly to the 2wire router. how do i acquire ethernet connection?


My guess is that the 2wire router has a DTE plug and a DCE plug. The DTE plug is meant to plug in to your DSL modem, while the other plugs are meant to plug into computers.
If you move the plug, it might work, assuming you have an upstream and downstream connection on the router.
Failing that:
Make sure the cable is an ethernet cable and not a phone cable,
Make sure the wires are run straight through. If it is a crossover cable, it might be meant to connect a DTE to a DTE without a hub, and it won't connect a computer to a router port.
Try a different cable.
Try a different computer (borrow one, etc.)

Conecting netgar wpn824v2 to cable internet


what exactly do you plug directly in the wall? what kind of connector does it use? an 'f' connector on a coax cable or RJ45 (like a phone plug? if you are using a cable connection you have to have a modem for that to work. if you are using a Ethernet cable tied directly to a jack on the wall you'll have to be sure routers are allowed to connect. or register the router with your provider. be sure your wireless router is getting an address form the internet provider. with out more details i can't give you any more specifics.

-good luck-
