Trying to access DSL with HP modem


If you mean you're trying to use DSL service with the modem that came built into an HP computer, you can't. That modem is for dial-up Internet service only, or if you want to use your computer as a fax machine along with a scanner or all-in-one printer.

To connect to DSL, you'll need a DSL modem. If you're just getting service, your service provider should have supplied one. (Actually, I think you have the option now of ordering DSL service and not getting a modem if you already have one. Maybe you did this.) The DSL modem has a telephone-type jack to connect to the phone line (same as on the HP modem), but the connection to your computer is through a different, larger, jack usually labeled "Ethernet" or "Computer". If you don't have a modem, you can easily find them for sale. You can buy new ones at retailers who sell computers, and many used ones are available on eBay or on your local Craig's list.

Another possibility is that you already have a DSL modem and are asking how to connect an addtional computer. If this is so, you don't connect the new computer to the DSL phone line. Instead, you need to share the network connection coming from the modem. This is done using a router, which allows several computers to use the same connection either through a cable or wirelessly. The DSL modems typically supplied now have the router built in, with 4 connections for wired computers and wireless capability as well. If your modem is an older one intended for a single connection only, it will have just one network connection. If this is the case for you, you'll need to supply your own router.

Asl light blilnks and i get error message saying low or no connectivity


This error occurs when your ISP 's(Internet Service Provider) server is partly down or either way. Or it might occur when the DSL wire got any loose connection or cut. Try checking the DSL cable and if still the problem exists, complaint your ISP to check on their side. Thank You.

Everthing is connected but power light is red and not green.


I'm sorry I cannot completely solve your issues here, but this is due to certain details that are specific to your internet service provider, and other details not provided in your request. However, I do have quite a bit of experience with 2Wire gateways and setting them up for use with DSL service. The following is based on my experiences with 2wire gateways, and AT&T as service provider:

There are a many things that could possibly be causing the red power light (which indicates a system error, more details below), and the reason why you have no internet connection. Your very best bet is to call technical support for your internet service provider (or ISP) for DSL service. You likely received this unit from your service provider - if you did, then they will have technicians who can walk you through the setup process for this specific 2Wire gateway. Also, if you received the unit from your service provider, you most likely received a setup CD/DVD for setup on your pc. If you have not already run this setup disk, do so prior to contacting technical support, and check the status of your lights / internet connection again prior to calling tech support. Depending on your service provider, if you did not receive a CD/DVD from them to setup internet service, then you most likely can find a download of the setup utility available via their website...just go online and see if you can find it on their specific website,& if so, download and run the setup utility. Only run the setup utility on a pc connected directly (by ethernet cable) to the 2Wire gateway, unless directed to do otherwise by your service provider, or their setup utility's instructions.

If you did not receive the unit from your service provider, then you should contact them asap to find out: A) if they support the 2wire gateway (give them the model number), and if they do support it, B) find out what is required to set it up for use with their service.

According to the manual from the manufacturer, available here , when your power light is lit solid red, it indicates the following: "system error, contact technical support". You need to contact technical support for your Internet Service Provider (such as AT&T DSL), NOT for the manufacturer.

If you have your PC connected to your 2wire unit, and the unit is powered on, you can access the unit's setup utility via your web browser (please ensure you have Internet Explorer 5.5 or later, or Mozilla Firefox 3.2 or later). Open your web browser, and in the address bar type the following:

http://gateway.2wire.net/

Click the system tab to open the System Summary page. The diamonds should be green or red, indicating the status of your LED's on the light panel of the 2Wire unit. It may give you only the status message I indicated above, or could provide you with more info. I maintain that you should first contact your ISP's tech support, but if you have not already accessed the gateway's setup utility and run the setup wizard, you may do so from the System Summary area. Look to the far right of the page, and you should see the Setup Wizard utility link in the lower right-hand portion of the page. Links for other registration info are also in this section, if available. Follow the on-screen instructions and check your status lights again.

Again, I hope this information helps, and again, your best resource is the tech support team for your internet service provider. Best of luck, and please report back to let us know if you get it set up, or, if we can be of further assistance to you in any way.

Hi, i have wnr2000 and am trying to set it up. i'm at the setup wizard which says that i already have a valid internet connection. what does this mean and what do i do next?


Basically you need to sign up with an Internet Service Provider in your area. The ISP will advise you the type in modem/Internet connection you need for their service (ie. DSL or cable) and advise you or provide you with a compatible DSL or cable modem. The ISP will provide an installation disc or instructions to configure the modem so it connects with their Internet server.
The modem is then connected to the wnr2000 router's Internet/WAN port with a LAN cable.
If you have already configured the modem and connected it to the wrn2000 router and the setup wizard has detected that you already have a valid Internet connection (it has detected your TCP/IP address which your Internet Service Provider has given you - this IP address is your unique network address - it is similar to your house address in your street, in your suburb, in your state, and in your country). Just click OK and continue with the setup.

No internet connection


This should be connected as so. From wall outlet to DSL modem, from DSL modem to D-Link router, From D-Link router to Laptop via wireless or wired connection. You will still need the DSL modem installed but the wire coming from the DSL modem will go to uplink port on the router instead of into the laptop.

Loosing DSL connection


Call the DSL service provider and tell them to fix the problem because it is obviously a problem on their end. Besides, why would you pay so much a month for that service, if you cant use it all of the time?

How To Set Up PPPoE DSL Connections with a Linksys Router


This article describes how to manually configure a Linksys Router for broadband DSL that uses PPPoE (Point-to-Point Protocol over Ethernet) for authentication. For automatic configuration options, please try: 1. Linksys Easy Connect (see Answer ID 1650 for more information), or 2. The Linksys Setup Wizard CD-ROM software that came with your Linksys Router. Simply insert this CD-ROM into an online computer before connecting your Linksys Router, and the Wizard will provide step-by-step instructions on how to install and configure your router.
