We moved and when everything was hooked up i cant get a connection from my linksys wireless router to my laptop


Ok - hook the power to the Linksys - then RESET - the folded out paper clip will work. Once RESET - hook it up to your ISP provided MODEM [ You must have this service to get on the web] now unplug the Modem provided by your ISP or provider - and unplug the router.
WAIT
15 seconds - then
hook up the MODEM from the provider - then hook up the router - then restart the laptop - if wired it will need to be plugged in - if wireless - run your 'search for a wireless signal and you should have it.

Thanks

when sharing internet connection, it's all about sequence when turning it on... Sequence in regard to what's turned on first, second etc... Here's the solution:
1. Turn everything off... modem, router...computers etc..
2. Turn on the wireless router FIRST and let it boot up.
3. Then turn on the modem and let it cycle up...
This allows your modem to lock onto the wifi router.
4. Turn everything else back on...
You should be good to go without drop outs...

If the power goes out, simply follow this sequence...
It's all about the sequence!!

Cant get wireless internet...however i can when mx6445 is hook directly to modem


connect directly to your wireless router, hook the modem to the router WAN port. From the computer type http:\\192.168.1.1 and log into the router. First make sure you can get Internet on the laptop through the wired connection. Then setup wireless without encryption or WEP and see if you can attach to the device unsecured.If both of these work, set WEP up and make sure you use the key and not the passphrase to authenticate.

The key looks something like AAB4562E...

Are you trying to set up router ?
You can set up your router manually, without the CD.
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.

My laptop connects to the router but the internet doesn't always work. The connection is perfect yet most of the time it won't go anywhere. Sometimes if I move the laptop around a few inches it'll work for...


Greetings,

If the laptop is hooked up by ethernet cable and the problem happens when you move the laptop, you either have a bad ethernet cable or a bad ethernet port in your laptop.

Probably the best thing to do in your situation is since you have a wireless router, enable wireless on your laptop and use that instead and work wirelessly.

Let me know if you need help setting it up.

Can you hook up the router without hooking to a tower


Yes the Router can be hooked to a high speed modem like DSL or Cable, that high speed connection would go from the modem to the "internet" port of the router. Now the router would need to be configured if you need wireless, and then a temporary connection to a tower or laptop would be needed.

Want to hook laptop up to home computer via cable modem


You need a router or a wireless router to do that.
If your cable modem is wireless you can set directly via wireless network a connection with your laptop (the laptop also need a wireless card (if dont have any built in))
The connection must be done in this way

ISP ----->> Cable Modem ---->> Wireless Router o Router ----->> Computer ( 1, 2, or more)
