Question about Linksys Cable Modem

1 Answer

I unhooked computer to paint walls. Now

I unhooked computer to paint walls. Now reconnected, computer will hook up to internet but after a while drop out and I have to restart computer. diagnosis says modem is not connected to internet---so have pushed on the reset button on back (although it doesn't seem like it's being pushed) still have to restart computer and up for a while and back down again. Last time after only 10 months (I moved & i moved this stuff gingerly) I had to buy a new modem. What's up with these modems that once you hook them up you can't sem to move them again or out they go and you have to go buy a new one?!?!??!!??

I think you must be just unlucky.

I think the reset button just resets the wireless internet but I am not certain about that.

Usually when a router loses it's memory it needs a call to the internet service provider who will get inside it and reset the addresses and check the connections and so forth. This is usually necessary even if you own your own router rather than having one provided by the ISP.

Diagnostics says the router isn't connected to the internet so maybe that is the truth and the problem - coincidences do happen and maybe there is a fault somewhere on the line and it needs reporting to ISP so they can check it or get it checked.

It could be worth double-checking the connections and leads first. I recently had trouble with a phone that worked only when it felt like it. The trouble was a couple if pins in the master socket had gone green and was failing to make contact with the phone plug some of the time.

SOURCE: Linksys routetr problem

HI,
The problem can be caused, because of two reasons, one the router profile on the computer has got corrupted and second the router itself. Have you tried resetting the router to factory defaults.. Caution: all wireless security settings and user name and passwords would go back to factory defaults.

1.Disconnect all cable from the back of the router.
2. Shut down your computer and the DSL box
3.Press the reset button, using a paper clip at the back of the router.Keep it pressed for 5 seconds
4. Disconnect the power cord to the router
5. Switch on the Dsl box, wait for the lights to stablize
6. Reconnect the interenet cable and the power cable to the router and power it on.
7 Let the lights stabalise on the router and power on the computer.

Check if that resolves the problem, if not we might need to update the router.


Thanks
Proton

Not sure if I understand properly but your router should have a WAN port or an "Internet" port

your modem should be connected to it and your PC should be on any of the LAN port

Is recycled paint good for walls


generally speaking if the lids have been left on tight and you strain the paint with a stocking it will be ok but it might not smell to pleasant for a few days.try dropping in some perfume to kill the smell or a tea spoon of bleach will do suffice.

A newly painted wall looks splochy, shinny in some spots and dull in others.


I would hope that you had the paint mixed well before putting it on and that the entire wall was done in one event. Also it would be of help to have primed the existing paint first.

Comcast unhooked it and i dont know how to hook it back up


Make sure that your computer is able to go online directly through the modem.
If your computer is able to go online through the modem, that means the modem is working fine.
You will need to connect the computer to the router and the modem to the router.
open the set up page of the router and change the settings of the router according to the ISP.

I dont know how to set up my routers


Put the setup disk in your computer and it will step you through the process.
Typically, you will have to hook your computer directly to an internet connection (with ethernet cable), then unhook it and connect the internet cable to the router (usually in port 1), then connect an ethernet cable from the router to your computer and plug in the router.
The disk should download the appropriate software and walk you through setting up a password and stuff.
After all that, you can unhook your computer and use it wirelessly.

Amp Turns off after 30 seconds of song play.


Check your ground and make sure it is grounded to metal in your car with no paint. Also, make sure you are running 4 gauge power wire. Another possible cause could be that the ohm load is too low on the amp. Also, if your car battery drops below 10v it will send the amp into protection.

How do i reconnect linksys


Oh man your going to have to help me out a little on this one. Do you mean you had to unhook it and connect directly to the modem and now you want to hook the router back up? If thats the case Unplug all the devices (Pc's modem and router) connect an Ethernet cable from the ethernet port on the back of the modem (not the linksys) to the internet ethernet port on the linksys (usually set a little apart from the rest) then connect all the computers to the routers ethernet ports (usually labeled 1-4) then turn on power to the devices starting with the modem, wait for it to completely boot up all the lights like they're supossed to look. Then turn on the router and wait for that to finish booting up then all of the computers. If you have wireless devices that will take a little more help.
