Dual Routers? I have a small home network on a Linksys router (4 port+wireless).  My new ISP uses an ADSL modem that is also a router (2 port).  I connect using PPPoE configured on the modem/router.  Both devices default to 192.168.1.1 What's the best configuration so I can have four DHCP ports and wireless? Thanks! -Andrew

Disable DHCP on the router and connect the modem to one of the router's LAN ports - that will give you 3 DHCP ports + wireless. If you need more than 3 ethernet ports, use a hub on one of them.

Disable DHCP in the router. Connect the modem to a LAN jack on the router. You'll have 3 LAN ports. If you need more ports, buy a hub. (You can change the default IP address on the Linksys, but you can't forward through 2 NATs.)

Westell 7500 set up guide


modems are not routers. Routers can port forward. You need your WAN to face your ISP, and your LAN will need to face your router. Once you have your router talking to your ISP you can set it up to hand out interal network services, but I doubt SOHO routers will do port forwarding. Routers, however, can do port translation like passing gaming traffic over port 80 (web). You can do that in the security tab on your linksys.

My router won't establish an internet connection to my new network (Frontier)


re you trying to set up the router.
You can do it manually without the CD.
Make sure that your computer is able to go online through the modem.
If your computer is not able to go online through the modem then you will need to call ISP first.
If your computer is able to go online through the modem
then you 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.

Will comcast support Actiontec - ADSL Modem with 802.11g Wireless Router and 4-Port Ethernet Switch


Comcast will not support that kind of modem. Comcast is a Cable ISP thus the ADSL modem won't work with them because ADSL modem is for DSL providers. Cable Company uses different protocol than DSL. But Comcast will provide you the cable modem if you subscribe to them.

ADSL ISP provides same address for IP and Gateway


Can you manually change the WAN IP on the router?  If so, give it an IP like 123.12.167.5 and set the gateway address to 123.12.167.1.  If it asks for a subnet mask, give it 255.255.255.0.
If she has a Linksys router, you may need to change the operating "MODE" on it.  A lot of Linksys routers have 2 modes of operation---Router mode and Gateway mode.  For her configuration, make sure the Linksys is in Gateway mode.  This will fix the NAT problem.

Cheers!

Help me please


I think Not.
There are ADSL wireless routers however.
I guess your purpose is to make your ADSL modem available wirelessly, you can connect the
modem via lan line to the wireless and use that as a router.

Pls. help


When dealing with a router there are multiple IP address scenarios, on the internet service provider's (ISP) side you can have either a static or dynamic IP address. I believe most routers by default are set to accept a dynamic IP address from the ISP. Where the ISP permits the router can also assign IP addresses to each device that attaches to it allowing a single ISP connection to be shared by multiple computers. This is also generally the default for routers purchased for home use and the wireless adapters also accept the dynamic IP assignment from the Router. With the logical discussion out of the way I believe you wish to discuss the physical connections to be established. Again this is a generic discussion not knowing your specific environment. port types - I will refer to phone ports (technically RJ-11 either two or 4 wires (these cables plug snugly into phone jacks and modem connectors) and ethernet ports (technically RJ-45 which are 8 wires and to big to fit in phone and modem ports) First you have a connection provided by the ISP for DSL this is your phone line where filters are attached to your voice phones and an unfiltered phone connection goes into the DSL modem's phone port often with an ethernet port. If you have cable generally the cable company provides a connection to a cable modem which has an ethernet or other port to connect to your system. The ethernet port generally connects to the wan port (generally separate) of your wrt54g router with an ethernet cable. Computers can be attached to the wrt54g router using the 4 ethernet ports in a group provided they have an ethernet port too. Wireless cards connect to the wrt54g router through radio waves and with antennas on the router and often internal to the wireless adapter (often embedded in a notebook computer today). These details are enclosed with your ISP's instructions and the Linksys router instructions often with pictures to help the explanation.

Setting up linksys adsl2 modem


The ADSL, Ethernet, and USB ports are located at the back of a Linksys modem. These ports are where the phone cable and computer will be connected. The ADSL Line should be connected to the ADSL port and the computer either be connected to Ethernet or the USB port., If u r using a ethernet cable no need to run the setup cd just connect the ethernet cable and contact ur isp..
do not worry about ur sagem modem, let it be inside.. just connect ethernet cables alone..

To setup a Linksys ADSL Modem with usb cable you need to perform two steps:
  1. Connecting the Devices Together
  2. Installing the USB Driver
Connecting the Devices Together
Step 1:
Connect the phone cable to the wall jack with ADSL service and then connect the other end to the ADSL port of the modem.
Step 2:
Make sure the power adapter is plugged to an available power outlet.
Step 3:
Connect the USB to the USB port on the back of the modem and then connect the other end top the USB port of the computer.
Step 4:
Power on the modem. After connecting the device together, install the USB driver. For instructions, follow the steps below.
Installing the USB Driver
Step 1:
Power on the computer.
Step 2:
When the Hardware Update Wizard window appears. Click Install the software automatically (Recommended).
NOTE: Windows XP has pre-installed drivers for the ADSL2MUE and will automatically install the USB driver for the modem.
Step 3:
Click Finish.
