Hello,

its obvious that your MSI router is faulty or needs to be reset. Check the back of the router, your will see a reset button, press the reset button and the router should be reset. If resetting does not resolve the issue, then maybe you should take the router to a man to fix the fault for you.

You can as well reinstall the router as it might connect, but basically, there is something wrong with the router.

Or get a screw driver, dismantle the router, use a brush to clean inside of the router and try again.

Good luck.

No broadband connection.


Since you successfully have connected the Vista system to the router, it is the router that is blocking access. Has the router been configured to allow only a short list of unique MAC-addresses to be able to access the Internet?

If you use a cable to DIRECTLY connect the Vista system to the cable-modem (or DSL-modem), and then power-off/power-on that modem, and then restart the Vista system, do you get Internet access?

My acer aspire one wont connect to internet. it says it is connected to wireless, and i have wired it to modem but the problem still persists. please help.


Based on your description, the following is assumed.
1. The service to your Internet Service Provider is through a cable or DSL modem.
2. Internet service was initially set-up with your netbook directly connected to the modem.
3. A wireless router was since added and is using the direct wired connection to the modem.
4. The netbook is connected to the wireless access point being provided by the router.
5. The netbook says it is connected to the wireless access point but still no internet access.
The problem is likely due to the modem capturing the MAC address of the netbook when access to the internet servce was initially set up using the netbook directly connected to the modem and now the modem will only allow access with the netbook directly connected to it. You can check this out by reconnecting the netbook directly to the modem. It may be possible to "flush" the captured MAC by unplugging the AC power to the modem, waiting a few minutes and then powering back up with the router connected in place of the netbook. To make it easier, you may want connect your netbook directly to the router's LAN side to check if you now have internet access through the router. If you still don't have internet access, you will need to use your netbook to log onto the router to clone your netbook's MAC address for the router's WAN connection. The router's user guide/manual has directions on logging in and doing the MAC address clone. It will also have an explanation as to what is a MAC address.

I have internet connection but my laptop will not connect


Check your connections. 1. Wired: directly connected to the modem (not the router) If this works, the router is the issue. 2. Wired directly to the router If this works then wireless is the problem 3. Wireless Check Key for accuracy, Upper and lower case matters. Check that your router does not have MAC address restrictions 4. Clear the cache on the laptop IE. Use the Options menu to clear this.

Linksys Wireless-G 2.4Ghz Broadband Router Problem


You have to check if your computer can connect to the modem with an Ethernet cable. This will tell you if the ethernet port on the modem is working. if that does not work call your cable provider.

Next thing after you get the instructions above done.

Press the reset button on the back of the router> press it in for 30 seconds then let go and pull out the power. Connect the router up the way it should be before you reset by the way. check if you have internet if you do not follow hte directions at teh link below.

Unplugged per cable company instructions & not won't connect


The configuration of your cables is correct, as long as your modem is connected to the 'internet' port on your router. You must unplug the power cord from the back of your modem and plug it back in so that the modem recognizes the router. After doing this you should be able to get to the internet.

The modem has a security feature that only recognizes one physical address. When you were plugged directly into your pc, it had the pc's physical address saved in its memory. When you reconnected to the router, the modem blocked the router's access to the internet because the physical address of the router did not match the physical address that was saved in memory.

L2TP connection problem


Hello, I've had the electric cut off and immediately back on and I lost my connection from Wireless router to modem. I could not connect in the same way. I could access the router settings with wireless laptop and PC but not to internet on either. I bypassed the router and connected the PC computer to modem then to internet verifying with a browser. I then reconnected the computer cable back to router and router to modem. It stayed connected. But I'm not sure if you have a PC connected to the router also. Sometimes just unplugging some cables and replugging will solve problems. Hope this helps.
