I can not get internet access to my router, I have internet access but only by directly connecting my desktop to the modem. The modem will not send internet access to my new router.


I understand that you are not able to go online through the router WNDR3400. Please perform the below task to reset and reconfigure the router:

RESET:

With the help of a paper clip, press the reset button on the back of the router for 20 seconds (please refer to the label on the bottom of the router for reset button location). Release the reset button after 20 seconds and turn off the router. Turn the router on after few seconds.

CONNECTIONS:

1. Connect an Ethernet cable from the modem to the WAN port of the router (isolated port).
2. Connect the computer to the router using any one of the 4 available ports. Please make sure that there is no direct connection between the modem and the computer (either using Ethernet cable or USB cable).
3. Power off the modem and the router after making the connections.
4. Power on the modem and wait for the lights to come on and then power on the router.

RECONFIGURE:

1. Open a web browser like Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox or Safari.
2. Access the router's GUI by typing http://192.168.1.1 or http://www.routerlogin.com.
3. When prompted for Username and Password, please enter 'admin' for the Username and 'password' for Password.
4. Click on 'Basic settings' from the left menu and select 'Use Computers MAC Address' from 'router MAC Address' section.
5. Click Apply.
6. Once it updates the settings then power off the modem and the router. Power on the modem and wait for the lights, then power on the router.


Please revert back for any further clarification.

Don't know how to hook up my router kids unpluged.


This is an easy fix. The back of the router has a single power jack and 5 jacks for network cables. 4 of the jacks are grouped together on one metal "plate" and are called LAN or "Local Area Network" jacks. The 5th jack is removed from the others slightly, and is by itself on its own metal "plate" closest to the antenna. This jack is called the WAN or "Wide Area Network" jack.

Disconnect the power cord if not already unplugged.

The WAN jack (closest to the antenna) should be connected to your DSL or cable modem output with a cable long enough to stretch between the two.

The LAN jacks should be connected to the computer(s) network jacks in your home that do not use a wireless connection.

Once everything is connected, turn on the DSL or cable modem (if not on already). After 30 seconds, power up the WGR614. After 30 seconds, you should see the power light on, the test light (a check mark) should be off, the wireless light (the antenna) may be on or off (depending if you configured it to be on before) and the internet light should be on or blinking (it's the icon next to the "1" light). If the internet light is off, check the WAN jack and cable back to the modem and make sure the modem is on.
After the internet light is on, turn on the wired computer(s). The 1, 2, 3, and 4 lights will flicker when computer(s) are on and connected to the 1, 2, 3 or 4 jack(s).


I hope this was helpful!

I lost the instructions on how to install a Linksys wireless router. I would like to down load these instructions.


cable setup

This guide is recommended for Cable Internet Service in the USA like Charter, Cox, Comcast, Cable Vision, etc.
  1. First you need to connect the device together. You need to connect your cable modem to the internet port on the back of the router, and the computer should go to one of the 4-port on the router labeled Ethernet (1, 2, 3, 4).
  2. Then turn on the modem first, wait for the lights to stabilize before powering on the Linksys router. Lights that you should have on the router are Power (solid green), Wireless/WLAN (Green sometimes flashing), One of the no. lights where the computer is plugged in (flashing), And the internet light (flashing).
After doing this step there are times that this will already get you online. If the internet will not work, you continue following the steps 3.

3. If the internet is still not working; we will need to adjust a setting on the router setup page. To access the setup page of the router you need to open your internet explorer or Firefox on the computer that is hardwired directly to the router. In the address bar of your browser (Internet Explorer or Firefox) type http://192.168.1.1/ and hit enter or click Go. It will ask you for a username and password. Just type "admin" for the password field and there is no username. If you have ran the setup CD prior to this, then use the password that you have set when were running the setup CD.
4. Once you are in the setup page of your router make sure that the Internet Connection Type is set to Automatic Configuration DHCP, then click the save the settings button at the bottom of the page. After saving the settings, click the sub tab at the very top of the page that says MAC Address Clone. Set it to enable and click the button that will say Clone or Clone your PC's MAC and save the settings again.

5. After doing step 4, do a power cycle. Power cycle is done by turning of the router, modem and computer. Leave them off for a minute, tuned them back on in this order. Modem first wait for the lights to stabilize, then the router wait until the power light become solid. Then turn on the computer. This will get you online through the router.
