Routers/switches are fine if a little past their use by date for a laptop, even if you are not a road warrior most of us in Australia are at present enjoying the 3g broadband network whereby we pay AU$78 for a prepaid broadband dongle it uses the cellphone network at a reasonable (for Australia) 7.5 mbps. The good part is you plug the dongle into a USB port, it loads its own drivers and software and in about 3 minutes you are on line surfing the nett. You can use your old ISPs mail box but I reckon Google Chrome with Gmail (google them) is the fastest, most secure and easiest way to go. Hope you have someone like Vodaphone near you, remember this will need to be in an area or cell which has 3g or 4g coverage. Good luck John

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!!

I have connected my wlan connection. but still bsnl gets connected only through lan. if lan is unplugged it is not connecting through wireless though the wireless connection shows as connected


Connecting to the Internet using a router
  1. Choose a convenient location to begin installing your router, such as an open floor space or table. This does not need to be the permanent location of the router. For wireless routers, it may be necessary to re-position the unit after installing it as the signals may not reach all areas needed.
  2. Unplug the power to your Internet modem.
  3. Power down your computer(s).
  4. Plug the power in to your router.
  5. Connect your Internet modem to the router. The cable plugs into the router jack named "WAN" or "Internet". Turn on your Modem.
  6. Connect one computer to the router. Even if the router is a wireless model, connect this first computer to the router via a network cable.

  7. Turn on the computer.
  8. From the computer connected to the router, open your web browser. Enter the router's address, http://192.168.2.1, and press Enter on your keyboard.
  9. Click Login in the upper right-hand corner of the page. The router does not ship with a password, so just click Submit.

  10. To configure the router to connect to the Internet, you must enter information provided by your Internet Service Provider (ISP) into the "Connection Type" section in the left-hand column under the "Internet WAN" heading of the router's configuration page. If using DSL Internet, you may need to enter the PPPoE username and password. Likewise, if you have been issued a static IP address by your provider, the static IP fields (including network mask and gateway) must also must be set in the router.

  11. If this is a wireless router, change the network name (referred to as SSID). While the router comes to you with a network name set at the factory, you may want to use something more familiar for your network. Read Changing the router's wireless channel and SSID for a description of this process.
  12. Plug the power back into your Internet modem.
  13. Verify that this computer can connect to the Internet properly. Open a new web browser and visit a few Internet sites such as Google.com or Yahoo.com.
  14. Finally, configure additional network security features as desired to guard your systems against Internet attackers.

Firstly please check the connections. The modem should be connected to the "Internet" port on the back of the router. And the computer can be connected to any of the 4 ports of the router. Checked the lights. They should be steady. If you have a cable connection (cable modem) than you can connect directly to the internet. Else if you are using a DSL connection than you need to configure the router according.


**If this works please rate else let me know in case of further help.**

Belkin 54g Router won't connect to internet.


If you can access the configuration page of your belkin router you have to copy the MAC address of your computer to the router. The router has the capability to clone the MAC address. It's because if you have a cable internet connection the MAC address is registered in the server.

Belkin Router not allowing an Internet connection


It's not unheard of for a router to fail. When you connected the computer to the Modem, did you use the same cable that was connected to the router? Does your internet connection require a username and password? If so, is that configured in your modem, or the router? If not in the modem it must be the router.
