Can't access internet, says I am connected but then says no internet connection


I think you should try to reset and reconfigure the Linksys router and see if that works.

If your Linksys router is old then you can also upgrade firmware on the router.

Connect your computer directly to the modem and make sure that you can access Internet directly through the modem.

Connect the modem and computer to the router. Open the setup page of the router and change the settings manually.

Try this website to setup your Linksys router manually.

I can also suggest you a Fiverr Gig where you can pay only $5 and get support for your Linksys router.

You need to make sure the password is entered correctly as well as the settings you have setup on the router as like WEP or WPA match the same settings your computer is recieving. Worse come to worse you can call clear internet and can see if they can help you

Cant get wireless internet...however i can when mx6445 is hook directly to modem


connect directly to your wireless router, hook the modem to the router WAN port. From the computer type http:\\192.168.1.1 and log into the router. First make sure you can get Internet on the laptop through the wired connection. Then setup wireless without encryption or WEP and see if you can attach to the device unsecured.If both of these work, set WEP up and make sure you use the key and not the passphrase to authenticate.

The key looks something like AAB4562E...

I Think you ISP must be DSL.
Your internet is working with the old router when it is in bridge mode.
Check the IP address of your computer when it is connected directly to the modem and NOT in the bridge mode. Suppose the IP address is 192.168.X.Y. After that connect your computer to the ethernet port of the router. DO NOT connect the modem to the router. check the IP address of the computer again. Suppose the IP address of the computer is 192.168.A.B. Now make sure that both the IP addresses are not in the same range that means X is NOT equal to A. If they are same, then open the set up interface of your router and change the Local IP address of the router. that will help.

Configuring router for Cable Internet (LINKSYS)

To configure your router for Cable you will need to set your router's WAN (INTERNET) port to 'Dynamic IP' (DHCP) option. The router is set to this option by default.

Configuration Steps:

Step 1
Connect the cable modem to the WAN (INTERNET) port of your router. If the modem has USB connection make sure that it is NOT connected to any computers via the USB cable and that the modem is switched to Ethernet (not USB). Only the modem's Ethernet port should be connected to the router's WAN (INTERNET) port.
Connect your computer(s) to the router's LAN port(s) or establish connection to it wirelessly.

Step 2
Open your Internet Explorer and log into your router by typing in its IP address (in most cases the default IP is http://192.168.1.1 ). Note that you do not have to be on the Internet in order to access this address because you are just connecting to your router's address. Specify username and password for your router, default is `admin' for password and username is blank (nothing).

Step 3
After logging into the router select Setup. Set Internet Connection Type to 'Automatic Configuration (DHCP)' option. Under Setup, click on MAC Address Clone tab. Enable it and click on "Clone My PC's MAC". Do this from the computer which the cable modem was directly connected the last time. This will place the MAC address of your computer into the router. Save settings and reboot the router.
Step 4

Click on SAVE SETTINGS and then on REBOOT THE DEVICE including the cable modem to apply the new configuration.

If you are having difficulties accessing the Internet, you need to:

- Log into the router and go to Status page. Note what IP address it is getting on the WAN (INTERNET) interface. If the IP address you see under WAN (INTERNET) appears to be in the same range you are using on your network (e.g. 192.168.1.x), you will need to change the range you are using on your LAN to something different, e.g. 192.168.88.1. You can do this on your router under Setup > Basic Setup. Note that after changing the IP of your router you will only be able to access it through its new IP, e.g. 192.168.88.1.

- Uninstall your antivirus/firewall software (sometimes disabling or closing the software is not enough) and reboot your PC. After establishing the Internet connection through the router, reinstall your antivirus/firewall software.

No connection with router


This may be a lengthy description, but I just wanted to be as forthcoming as I could, as I was annoyed by the lack of support I was able to find to fix this problem myself. As far as I understand it, the problem is in the router. I don't know what it "thinks" it's doing, but the solution detailed below will essentially just tell it to do the basic things it should be doing.

What I had to do to fix this (Same router model, same issue) was to unplug every cable from the back of the router (including the cat-5 cable coming from the modem and going into the WAN port), except for the computer that I know works when plugged directly into the modem. I left the modem turned on, though disconnected from the router.

The point of this was to have a simple connection between computer and router so that I could get into the router and tweak its settings. For some reason it was freezing up on me when the modem was plugged in and I could not access the router at all. So, after plugging in only this computer to the router, I unplugged the power to the router, waited about a minute, and plugged it back in. When the router first turns on all of the lights on the front come on. Wait for all of the numbered ones to go off (by 'numbered' I mean the lights numbered 1-4 on the right side of the front panel display) except the one that corresponds to your computer's connection port in the rear of the router (the number your computer is plugged into).

Once this has happened you should be able to get into your router through a web browser by putting "192.168.0.1" (no quotes) into the address bar. The default username/password combination (which you should be prompted to put in) is "admin" for the user name, and leave the password field blank.

You should now be viewing the router's page, which should by default be showing the "SETUP" tab. If we cant fix the router by renewing your DHCP (as detailed below), then we will return to this page.

For now, plug the cable from the back of your modem into WAN port on the back of the router. Click on the "STATUS" tab (3 buttons to the right of SETUP), and look under the "WAN" heading. Note that the settings (I'll refer to them as "WAN Settings") displayed under this heading are as follows:

MAC Address
Connection
IP Address
Subnet Mask
Default Gateway
DNS

If it says "Connection : DHCP Client Connected" and there are numbers besides just zeroes for the lower WAN settings, then your internet should be working. Verify this in a new window by attempting to browse to your homepage or google or something. If it does not work, or if the Connection status is not connected, then click the "DHCP Renew" button directly to the right of the "Connection" setting.

A number of things could happen here. If it works, the WAN settings should no longer display only zeroes (you may have to navigate back to this page). If the DHCP renew attempt times out or doesnt work, then navigate back to the "SETUP" tab on the main page of the router (the page we started on).

There should be a button in the middle of the page under the "Internet Connection Wizard" heading labeled "Setup Wizard". Click it, then click it again as it changes to "Launch Internet Connection Setup Wizard". The four steps are:
  • Step 1: Set your Password
  • Step 2: Select your Time Zone
  • Step 3: Configure your Internet Connection
  • Step 4: Save Settings and Connect

For the "configure your internet connection" step, click the button that copies your MAC address. At the end of this process your router will be reset. Again, wait for the lights on the front of the router to display properly before signing back in. You will have to sign back in afterwards using your new password (admin should still be the username). At this point it worked for me. If it is still not working, go to the STATUS page again and renew the DHCP (same step as before) now that you have run the setup wizard. Good luck, hope this solves it for ya!

Cant go wireless


I think the problem is not your laptop configuration. Can you check the setup configuration of the router it's maybe the wireless function is disable. Or try to reset the router to his default configuration. Press the reset bottom of the router for 15 second then try to connect your wireless connection if still not working setup again the router configuration.

thanks
