Can i connect adsl wireless router to a cable modem?

Posted by on

  • mike4pres May 31, 2010

    I had read several posts which stated that as the ADSL router has an input for an ethernet cable, that the cable modem could be directed through the ADSL router, which would in essence just turn the signal that it has received from the cable modem as WiFi.

    I've tried this and it doesn't work but that's because I believe there are additional steps in the setup process which I am missing.

    Any Help??

Connect ethernet cable from ADSL modemTO wireless router wan port.
Then you need to configure your router .
Connect your router to computer with ethernet cable then you can access it with following default link.
http://192.168.0.1
or
http://192.168.1.1
If you are not able to access it with above ip then check your computers ip address gateway ip is your router ip try with it.
Then it ask for user name and password.
Type user as "admin" and password as "admin" or "password" or blank.
Then you can see configuration page of router.
Click on WAN settings and set those settings as your internet service provider settings.
Enable DHCP if you want to get ip from router.
Click on wireless settings enable wireless then enable WEP Security then add WEP code .It is your password to connect wi fi.Then save settings and restart router.
Then you can connect your wi fi network with that code.

Let me know if you need further assistance.

    Then Connect your router to computer with ethernet cable then you can access it with following default link.
    http://192.168.0.1
    or

    Then it ask for user name and password.
    Type user as "admin" and password as "admin" or "password" or blank.
    Then you can see configuration page of router.
    Then click on wan setting and set all settings as your internet service provider settings if you have static ip then configure it as static.If you need user name and password for connect internet then configure it as pppoe then click on wireless and enable it.
    Then save settings and restart router.
    If you need ip address from router then enable DHCP then set ip get automatic in wireless network adapter tcp ip property.

    Thanks so much, I was finally able to get a wifi network working on my MacBook, but now I cannot get my PC or second laptop to connect?? I cannot even connect PC via ethernet cable plugged into one of the empty ports on the ADSL wifi router? I had previously not had an issue connecting PC to ADSL wifi router prior to my changing over to a cable network.


    Do I have to reconfigure router some how to each machine that will connect to it? I was under assumption that after I configure it to send out wireless signal that it would automatically be picked up and all I would need is correct password?


    Thanks

Yes it is possible. As long as there is available LAN port on your cable modem. You can connect the two device by using a LAN cable. Make sure that both devices dont have same gateway IP address. There would be possbile conflict of IP when you connect the two devices. You can alwys change the Gateway IP address to avoid conflicts.

    I see. Have you checked their gateway IP address? if both have the same gateway IP then there is an IP conflict there thats why there is no internet connection.

    Apologize for delayed response but I was away from home for couple of days and that is where issue is.


    I know that I can easily connect the ADSL router to the cable modem and thus creating a normal router out of the ADSL router but what I am trying to do is create a WIRELESS network using the ADSL wireless router connected to the cable modem.


    Cable modem has 1 ethernet outlet.
    Wireless ADSL modem has 4 LAN's + 1 ADSL in Ethernet outlet.
    If I connect the ethernet from the cable into one of the 4 LAN's, then I have a cabled network with 3 connections out.
    If I connect the ethernet from the cable into the ethernet outlet on the Wireless modem which is labeled ADSL, then nothing happens.


    They do not have same IP adresses.


    The ADSL wireless router is a USRobotics 9108
    The cable modem is Scientific Atlantic EPC2203

    Hi. Connecting the Scientific Atlantic EPC2203 to your USRobotics 9108 via ethernet cable should do. You should be able to do wireless connection at this time. Your wireless modem (USrobotics) will serve as your access point. Data or internet coming from your Scientific Atlantic EPC2203 will just flow to your USRobotics 9108 without a problem. You dont need to connect anything to the ADSL port. May i know the the Gateway IP of the cable modem and your US robotics.

    Tried this solutions in a number of different configurations and was never able t create a wireless network.


    Cable Modem to ADSL LAN Input #1 - Allows me to connect another PC to another open Lan input and get online wired, not wirelessly.


    Cable Modem to ADSL LAN Input Labeled "ADSL" - Nothin happens and does not allow any internet connection.


    When connected directly to Cable Modem-
    IP ADRESS - 94.113.137.49
    ROUTER - 94.113.136.1
    DNS SERVER - 213.46.172.36, 213.46.172.37




    When connected to ADSL Modem -

    IP ADRESS - 192.168.1.2
    ROUTER - 192.168.1.1
    DNS SERVER - 192.168.1.1

    You should not be getting any problem if that is the case. I am also using a cable modem and a ADSL wireless modem/router (prolink 9300G). I was able to go wireless here at home by just connecting the Prolink to my Cable modem via ethernet cable using the port 1 of Prolink. I didnt plugged in any cable under ADSL port. No configuration has been done for both devices. I think you need to contact your cable modem provider. Possibly, they could have locked some setting in the cable modem so that you cannot use it to connect to routers. Their aim is to established a one-is-to-one connection.

You need a router which connects to ethernet..ADSL is connected by RJ45(Telephone connection) ... Many cable companies include a router in the Modem (Verizon) others need a router to do wireless which gets connected between the PC and the Modem . the DSL-2750U is well over $2000.00.. a normal wireless router is $50-$100... a regular router gets connected by ethernet to Modem and router ,, then has 4 other connectors .. ehternet to PC.. Also requires power supply. .. wireless has to be setup for the software.

Sitecom WL-342 Wireless Router won't access internet.


Hello,

Make sure there is a network cable going from your ADSL modem into the WAN connection of the router.

If the ADSL modem is wireless, then it is also a router in whihc case you will want to bypass the WL-342 all together.

Thanks,

Pat

I connect fine to it but cannot get to internet


This is not a trivial task but to start, I presume that your Wireless Router is connected to an ADSL or CABLE modem:
1) Make sure that you can connect to the Internet/Web directly from the ADSL/CABLE modem. 2) Once you have step 1 validated, connect your Wireless router to the ADSL/CABLE modem. 3) Ensure that you can communicate to the Wireless router and use Netgear supplied software - I suggest that you connect your PC/LAPTOP used for configuration directly via an ETHERNET cable attached to your router: 'NETGEAR's Smart Wizard™ makes the set-up of the RangeMax™ wireless router easy and hassle-free. Smart Wizard automatically detects your ISP's network settings, then walks you through each step of the installation proces' 4) When the installation is finish, try connecting to the internet via the ETHENET cable on your router. If it does not work, the FIREWALL on the ADSL/CABLE MODEM may be blocking the port and needs to be opened/disabled. 5) You can now concentrate in getting the WIFI working by first using an 'unsecured/no encrytion' connection by setting an appropriate SSID. 6) Once setp 5 is working, you SHOULD NOW SECURE your Wifi connection by using a selected encryption (such as WEP or better) and security key.
ps. you will get this 'limited access' message if anywhere in the device chains the IP addresses cannot be resolved.

I have a DSL502T ADSL Router,and have bought a new emachines computer. I can not connect to the internet. The computer has a wireless connection loaded but I want to connect by dailup Please could you help...


You are a bit confused with the various components required for Internet connections.
If you have a dial-up connection with an Internet Service Provider, all you do is connect your computer's modem port to the phone line and dial the phone number of your Internet Service provider.
If you are connected to the Internet Servise Provider by ADSL and have a combined ADSL router and modem then you connect the phone line to this router/modem. If the ADSL modem is separate component then the phone line is connected to the ADSL modem and this modem is connected to the router with a LAN cable and the computer is connected to the router with another LAN cable. If the route is wireless and the computer has a wireless card then you don't need a LAN cable between the router and the computer.
If you are connected to the Internet by ADSL, to secure your Internet connection and configure your computer so it can connect to the Internet, please follow my instruction - click on this link :-

If the Internet light is off then there is a problem with the phone line to the ADSL modem or the modem is faulty or there is a problem at the telephome exchange.
Disconnect the phone cable at the ADSL modem and connect a phone handset to this cable - check for a dial tone and that you can dial out.
If you don't get a dial tone, use a different or new phone cable.
If the phone line is OK then : -
Ring your ISP to get them to test your connection to your ADSL

ADSL support for ADSL router


No, you can't connect your router directly to your ADSL. Maybe you should try a wired router.
