Eric, I have a wireless G and have had loss of my IP address. Call Linksys Tech and they will help you restore it again. They did that for me once and they were very helpful.

L cannot get internet when connected to my router, but l get internet when connected to modem directly.


Your ISP allows only one device to connect to their network.
When you change devices (router versus computer),
you need to power-off the ISP's modem, and unplug it.
Connect the router to the modem, and connect your computer to your router.
Plug the modem back in, and the modem will "forget" what device was previously connected.

Connected to wifi but no internet connection


Wireless networks have become an increasingly popular way to access the Internet. Connecting to a wireless network allows you to browse the Internet without having to physically connect any cords to your computer.


Troubleshooting wireless connectivity can sometimes be confusing, because even if a wireless network is not able to bring you to any web pages, often your computer's wireless card will still connect to the wireless network that is being broadcast.


In other words, a wireless network will read "connected" even if it is not connected to the Internet.


Connect to a different wireless network. If there is an alternate wireless network within range of your computer that you legally are able to use (a free public Wi-Fi rather than your neighbor's wireless network, for instance), try connecting to it and browsing the Internet.


If the same issue occurs on the alternate wireless network, you may have an issue with your computer's wireless card or with your Internet browser.


If you are able to connect to the alternate network but still not able to connect to your own, the problem is most likely localized to the wireless network you use at home.


Reset all devices.

The great majority of Internet connection issues can be resolved by a simple reset of all the devices in your home network.


Locate the power cords of both your modem and your wireless router and unplug them (if you use a modem/router combination, simply unplug its power cord) for a full 30 seconds.


Plug them back in and restart your computer.

Try to connect to the Internet using your wireless network after your computer has booted back up.


If the connection still fails, some further troubleshooting is required.

Bypass your wireless router.


If your computer's wireless card is connecting to your wireless network of choice yet you are still not able to access any websites, there may be a connection issue on either your modem or router.


The easiest way to locate the problem is to temporarily eliminate the router from the network. Locate the Ethernet cable that connects your modem to your router and unplug it from the router.


Plug the cable directly into one of the Ethernet ports on your computer and reset the modem in the manner described above.


Now try your Internet connection again. If there is still no Internet access, the problem is most likely with your modem or your computer; contact the technical support department of your Internet service provider (ISP) for further assistance.


If the modem goes online directly connected, your router is causing the problem and may need to be reconfigured. Contact the router manufacturer for further assistance.


Hope this helps

I can not connect to the Internet. I have WiFi connection but can't do anything else


Plug your computer/laptop directly into router. Can you get to the Internet then?
If you CANNOT get to the internet when your computer is plugged into the router, reboot your router. If it doesn't have a power switch, unplug it. Leave it unplugged. Next, you need to figure out if you have another modem for DSL or Cable. If you do have another DSL or Cable modem, unplug that device to. After 5 minutes has elapsed for both devices being unpowered, plug in the DSL or Cable modem to the power source. Keep the router unplugged from power. After your DSL or Cable modem has powered up for 5 minutes, plug your router into the power source. Wait a few minutes. Reboot your computer/laptop. Try the wireless connection again.
If you CAN get to the internet when your computer is plugged into the router. Reboot your computer. Try to connect again. If you cannot connect after rebooting, make sure you are connecting to YOUR OWN wireless access point and not someone else's.
Do you have other computers/laptops/wifi devices that CAN/CANNOT connect to your wireless / access the Internet?

Unable to connect to internet through Linksys WRT160N router. Can unplug it and internet is fine. Tried power cycling the modem and router. Linksys comes up with all lights flashing and will not...


If I understand your problem correctly, you are able to connect to the Internet when you hook the computer directly to the modem, but not when the router is connected to the modem.
If this is the case, then you need to do a power drain on the modem. Power cycling the modem is not enough to clear the NVRAM of the MAC address of your computer. You have to unplug the power cord of the modem for 15 to 20 minutes in order for the NVRAM to reset and allow the modem to recognize the MAC address of the router.
After the modem has been unplugged for 15 to 20 minutes, disconnect the power cable from the router and then connect router to the modem using the Ethernet cable.
Next with the router power cord still disconnected, plug in the power cord of the modem and allow the modem to sync to the network.
Once the modem is finished with its start-up, plug-in the power cord of the router and let it sync to the network.
After the modem has completed its start-up, it should now be connected to the internet.
Good Luck

My belkin wont keep connection


1. Powercycle your equipment (unplug the power to your router and your modem)
2. Wait 15 seconds then plug equipment back in.
3.If your Modem runs off signal from a tower try and get more signal simply by moving modem closer to a window.
4.Check your connections to the modem and to the router, ensure the wires are plugged all the way in.
5.Using your wireless signal from your computer pc or laptop ensure you have sufficient signal you may have to move closer to the router, once in a while you will be to far from your router to have a good connection.
6. Make sure the ventilation slots on modem and router are not blocked.
7.Check to see how far your modem is away from any electrical equipment your modem should be away at least 3 feet away.
8. If you are able to keep connection directly plugged into your modem from your computer most likely there is an issue with the router, In this case you can always reset your router there may be a configuration error in your router, To reset simply press and hold reset button on the back of the router for approximately 15 seconds or until router restarts, Caution by resetting your router will reset back to factory default and your router will be unsecure once again.
9. When your are disconnected from the internet make sure that the Connection itself isnt still connected if your connection itself is connected and you are unable to get online you may need to renew your ip address. usually your ip address automatically renew's once the router and modem have been powercycled (unplugged and plugged back in) however you may need to manually renew your ip.
10.Windows Xp: Start/Run/CMD and press ok
A.Type ipconfig /release
B.Type ipconfig /renew
Windows Vista/7 Start/All Programs/Accessories/Right click on command prompt and hit run as administrator.
A.Type ipconfig /release
B.Type ipconfig /renew then restart your computer
If you are a Mac user:Here is a link to show you how to renew http://support.apple.com/kb/TS1920 If your continue to get disconnected contact your ISP (Internet Service Provider) Check and ensure that it is not an issue on there end

Computer wont connect to internet with router


Troubleshooting steps:
1) Make sure that you can get it to work if you go from the cable/DSL modem directly to your computer
2) Assuming that works, disconnect the cable from the back of the computer and plug it into the WAN/INTERNET connection on the router and take a different cable and go from one of the LAN ports (labelled 1-4, typically) to the computer
3) turn off the computer, unplug the router and unplug the cable/DSL modem. Plug in the cable/DSL modem and wait for the lights to stabilize. Plug in the router and wait for the lights to stabilize. Finally, turn on the computer and try it.

Make sure you have the cable plugged to the right spot. Your modem to the Internet/WAN port and your computer to port 1, the 2nd pc to port 2. Try to reset the router. There's a reset button at the back of the router. Hold it down for 30 seconds. Then do a power cycle. Unplug the power from the back of the router and also unplug the power from the modem. Wait for 30 seconds. After that, Plug the power back to the modem first, wait for all the lights to be steady then plug the power back to the router. That should do it.

Followed the cd set up instructions to the letter every thing worked except it will not connect to the internet internet connection is ok when plugged straight into the computer


Try to reset the router first. There's a reset button at the back of it. Press it for 20 seconds, then unplug the power to the router, unplug power to the modem as well. Make sure the modem is connected to the Internet/WAN port of the router, and your PC is connected to port 1 on the router as well. Now power on the modem first, wait for all the lights to go solid, when they are solid, plug the power back to the modem now and check if you can go online now.

Belkin router


I just worked on one of these today. Try this and see if it helps.

1. Unplug your cable or DSL modem and your wireless router

2. Plug back in the cable or DSL modem and wait for the internet to successfully connect (watch the lights).

3. Plug the wireless router back in again and wait for it to connect (again, watching the lights)


If this doesn't work, make sure you have the equipment plugged-in in the right order.

cable or dsl signal goes to modem ==> modem plugs into wireless router ===> computer plugs into wireless router.
