My USR 9106 Wireless Gateway is just 3 years old and following an issue with my broadband internet access provider it stopped working. I cannot get the ADSL light to stay on and the status report is No Line. It is out of warranty and I feel like I have been abadoned by USR and my ISP. HELP!
I am currently getting access to the internet via a wired connection through the USB modem provided by the ISP. I have little technical knowledge so low jargon responses would be much appreciated.

Re: No Line on US Robotics ADSL Wireless Gateway
Initially what I suspect is that your USR's connection to your ISP is intermittent but with that of the USB modem is consistent. This is clearly an ISP issue and should be resolved by them.
One thing you can try is to verify the integrity of the line splitter that is commonly used to split the 2-wire signal to the telephone and to the modem/router. You can actually remove the splitter and connect the telephone line straight to the WAN/ADSL input of the USR 9106 Wireless Gateway and check if their is an improvement or if your ADSL and WAN IP will light up consistently.
Alternately, if your ISP is too busy to attend to your concern, you can try mimicking the USR's WAN settings to that of the USB modem's. While still using the USB (provided by your ISP) determine its WAN IP settings. This would be IP address, Subnet Mask, Default Gateway and DNS. You need to access the USB modem to get this data. Should you need detailed instructions, pls post back the make/model of the ISP provided USB modem. If you were able to gather the information. Connect your USR 9106 Wireless Gateway (Ethernet 1~4) to your PC using a LAN cable and enter its configuration page. In its WAN/ADSL settings, use the numbers gathered from the USB modem. You may need to do a full hard reset on the router (rear panel) prior to putting in the numbers.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. If problem persists, pls post back as requested, how things turned up or should you need additional information.

The "IP address" is your DEFAULT GATEWAY so you can try 192.168.1.1 or you have to check it by going to START>RUN and type CMD in the box and then Enter (brings you to the COMMAND PROMPT type IPCONFIG and enter you will see your DEFAULT GATEWAY.
For the user name and password (you didnt mention the model #) so for all US ROBOTICS the User names are (unless you changed it) try "root" "Any" "support" "Admin" and Passwords are (unless you changed it) "12345" " Admin" "support" "password". If you did change it and cant remember you can always press the reset button on the back and restore it to the "Out-Of-The-Box" settings.
If this was helpful, please indicate so, if not -comment back so we can dig further to resolve this.
I would suggest you to change the wireless user name and the network key. This should solve the issue. For more information click the link below and read the instruction carefully and follow the steps.
Not quite sure I understand this. Your modem (do you mean modem as in dial-up or do you mean ADSL router as in broadband?) works in one room but not in another. But your desktop works when plugged into the same jack!
please confirm that you are using broadband and not dial-up as the above makes no sense. Broadband is tied to a specific phone line & number. Dial-up works on any phone line.
Firmware Version 220.127.116.11.8This firmware fixes the following issues:
DST (Daylight Saving time) Firewall issue with how IAC (Internet Access Control) works.
PPPoE server disconnect/reconnect
PPPoE inactivity timer
PPTP client disconnect/reconnect
Note: If upgrading from Version 18.104.22.168.3, follow these instructions before proceeding.
With a thin tool, such as a paper clip, briefly press the RESET button on the back of the router.
Wait about 30 seconds.
Continue with instructions below.
Important: To ensure a successful upgrade, please perform the firmware upgrade from a client that is physically wired to the router. A wireless client may become disassociated from the router during the upgrade process resulting in an incomplete upgrade.
Download this file to a temporary location on your computer's hard disk drive.
To upgrade your USRobotics Wireless MAXg Router with all operating systems, open an Internet browser and enter the router's IP address. The default IP address of the router is 192.168.2.1
Enter your User name and Password. Click OK.
Click Device in the main menu.
Under the "Upgrade Router" section, enter the location of the USR5461-v22.214.171.124.8.usr file in the text box, or click the Browse button to search for the file. Then click the Upgrade button to begin the upgrade process.
When the upgrade process is complete, the router will reboot. To re-establish a connection with your router, wait approximately 15 seconds and click Continue.
I don't know what you mean about 'so that default ip address is require', however to access your router/access point, the default address should be 192.168.0.1 for your routers configuration site, which you would type into your internet browser (internet explorer).
If it is not set at 192.168.0.1 for any reason, go to start>run>cmd and then OK. In the command prompt, type in "ipconfig". It will list you some addresses, Default Gateway would be the address to your router settings, enter that one into your browser.
Your sister was accessing the wireless access point at school which is connected to the Internet/WEB access via a router and the school's broadband service provider.
For you to access the Internet using your wireless adapter on your laptop, you need your own wireless access point and connect it to a broadband ADSL or cable modem and then connect it to an Internet Service Provider. Some Internet Service Providers (cable and ADSL) can supply a combined modem/router/wireless Access point.
If you already have a broadband modem all you need is a wireless access point/router. You only need to configure the wireless access point and your wireless adapter so they will communicate with each other. Folow the instructions in the manuals.
It appears you may have confused the world because of your IP addressing choices. Do you know what a subnet mask is? It determines which machines share the same network with other machines. Routers by design are the connection between different subnets, Most routers default to 255.255.255.0 for the subnet mask which means both of your routers are in the same subnet as they are 192.168.2.? meaning you have two separate networks sharing the same same subnet address when they should be unique. Try making the wireless router 192.168.3.3 or 192.168.3.1. This puts devices in your wireless network on the 192.168.3 subnet and the devices in the ADSL subnet in the 192.168.2 subnet which includes the WAN half of the wireless router. I believe this will correct your network issues. In this case if hardcoded the gateway for the wireless router would be 192.168.2.1 also known as the the adsl modem
