Hi,

Had this work before?

If yes, and you're using Cable modem then just Power cycle the Linksys router by unplugging / plugging the power cord.

If not, then you have to configure it with the correct settings for Cable and DSL ISP connection.

Check you physical connections; Modem (cable or dsl) - to Linksys (WAN or Internet port) - then plug (wired) your PC to check internet connection.

Good Luck!

Connected wireless to router, excellent signal, but unable to connect to internet.


connected to wireless router with excellent signal may not means you are connected to internet. make sure your modem provided by internet service provider has signal! connect your computer to modem directly bypassing router. If you are online that means your internet is functional. Then connect modem to your Linksys router and use your wireless to log on to internet.
Your router wireless signal active and excellent means you are connected to router not necessarily the internet. The modem supplied by your internet service provider with active internet should be connected to you router on WAN port!
good luck!!

My linksys w/2phone ports cannot hook up with the ethernet


Most Cable Internet Service Providers (ISPs) use Media Access Control (MAC) Address authentication to establish Internet connection for end-users. MAC address is a unique identifier assigned to the network adapter/s of the computer.
To set up your Linksys router to work with a Cable ISP, you have to enable the MAC Clone feature of the router. MAC Cloning is a procedure which enables a router to copy the MAC address of the computer registered with the ISP.
To set up a Linksys router with Cable connection, you need to perform four steps using the computer that's been registered with the ISP:
i. Verifying Internet Connection
ii. Connecting the Devices Together
iii. Checking the Router's LEDs
iv. Setting Up a Linksys Router for Cable Internet Connection

Verifying Internet Connection
Connect the computer to the Broadband modem using an Ethernet cable without the router installed. If you cannot get online, contact your ISP. If it's online, use the computer to set up the router.
NOTE: Some cable modems use the USB port. If the physical connection is via USB port, you may not be able to go online via Ethernet connection. Contact your ISP to have the Ethernet port of the modem configured.

kb17251-001_en.png NOTE: The image may vary depending on the computer and modem you're using.
Connecting the Devices Together
After confirming the Internet connection through the modem, connect the modem to the Internet port of the router; connect the computer to any of the four Ethernet ports at the back of the router. For instructions, click here.
Checking the Router's LEDs
After connecting the devices together, check the lights on the front panel of the router. Ensure that the Internet light, as well as numbered light corresponding to the Ethernet port where the computer is connected, is lit. For further instructions, click here.
Setting Up a Linksys Router for Cable Internet Connection

Step 1:
Access the router's web-based setup page. For instructions, click here.

NOTE: If you are using a Mac computer to access the router's web-based setup page, click here.

Step 2:
On the Setup tab, click the MAC Address Clone sub-tab.

Step 4:
Click Save Settings.

Step 5:
Click the Status tab.

kb17251-004_en.png

Step 6:
Check the Internet IP Address. If the Internet IP Address has numbers, this means the router has been properly configured. You should now be able to access the Internet. If you're still unable to access the Internet, powercycle the modem, the router and then restart the computer.

kb17251-005_en.png

NOTE: If the IP address is still 0.0.0.0, click IP Address Release then, click IP Address Renew. If this does not change the IP Address, powercycle the modem, the router and then restart the computer.

  • 3Connect the computers to the ports on the new router.
  • 4Configure the new router settings to match the old router settings.
  • 5Use IPConfig to check you current IP address
  • 6Use this information to create a static IP on the computers connected to your network.
  • 7Set the Default Gateway to the IP address of the router in which the computer connects.
  • 8Check that all computers can access the internet and "see" each other on the network.

    Cable modem internet works when directly plugged into desktop, but when run through the router, no connectivity


    Most cable Internet Service Providers (ISP) use a Media Access Control (MAC) Authentication to establish Internet connections for end-users. A MAC address is a unique 48-bit (6-byte) integer that is attached to an Ethernet NIC for each computer. To set-up your Linksys router to a Cable ISP, you have to do MAC Cloning. MAC Cloning is a procedure which enables a router to copy the MAC address of the PC that's registered with the ISP.
    To setup a Linksys router with Cable connection you need to perform five steps:
    1. Verifying Internet Connection
    2. Connecting the Devices Together
    3. Checking the Router's LEDs
    4. Configuring a Linksys Router for a Cable Connection
    5. Power Cycling
    NOTE: Before proceeding, use the computer that can go online when connected to the modem and follow the steps below.
    Verifying Internet Connection
    Connect the Broadband modem to the computer using an Ethernet cable without the router installed and make sure that the Internet connection is active. If it is not, contact your ISP. If it can go online, the PC connected to the modem is the one that's registered with the ISP.

    kb4682-001_en.png NOTE: The image may vary depending on the computer and modem you're using.
    Once an active Internet connection is established through the modem, connect the modem and the computer to the router by following the instructions below.
    Connecting the Devices Together
    After ensuring that you have an active Internet connection, connect the modem to the router's Internet port and the computer to any of the four Ethernet ports. For instructions, click here.
    After connecting the devices, check the LEDs by following the instructions below.
    Checking the Router's LEDs
    The Linksys router's front panel will indicate the status of the connection. After connecting the broadband modem to the WAN or Internet port, the computer to an available numbered port and powering on the router check the lights on the front panel of the router. For instructions, click here.
    After checking the router's LEDs, configure the router for cable Internet. For instructions, follow the steps below.

    Connecting Laptop wireless and Desktop wired to the router


    Do you need to see the desktop or just share folders from each other? If the latter then you need to do the following:

    Use Windows Explorer and select a folder you want to share. Right click and select sharing and security.

    On the sharing tab click on Share this folder. Enter a share name ( I like to enter the PC name _folder name; Rick1_Downloads)

    Click on Permissions. If your ok with everyone using the PC's and Laptops having access then highlight Everyone and click on Full Control.

    Do this on each PC and Laptop.

    That should be it or darned near close.

    Normally, all ruters are hubs as well. if you want to connect it as a hub only; try connecting only the ports minus the WAN port that goes to the DSL modem. In this case the router will behave just like a hub.

    DSL/dialing connection?


    No, the router will do the connection for you.
