Hi there!

I want to help you out. I have some questions to ask you first:

1. What brand and model are your wireless router and laptop?
2. Does the laptop have a built-in wireless card or you installed one?
3. If it's has its built-in wireless card, check the wireless switch of the laptop. ICheck if it is on or off (some laptops sometimes has an on/off switch)
4. Check if the wireless light on your router is on (it's sometimes refered to "WLAN")
5. How many wired & wireless computers do you have and their operating system?

Your physical connections are correct. BTW, can you also specify what port from the modem is going to the router? Some routers have 1 port named "Internet or WAN" and 4 ports for "Ethernet." Check if the modem is connected to the "Internet or WAN" port.

I have a linksys wireless g router that worked fine until yesterday. Now it won't connect to the internet. I have a desktop wired to the router and a laptop used wireless.


Check if you can connect to the internet when hooked directly to the modem. If your connection works fine through the modem, then your router needs to be reconfigured.

I have Time Warner Cable for internet and Vontage cable for my phone thru my internet. I'm trying to connect a Linksys router for my wireless laptop. I also have a Netgear switch connected to Time Warner...


If you purchased a Linksys wireless roter then you shoul not need the switch anymore-
Try going directly from your time warner modem into the Interner/WAN port on the router and then plug your desktop computer and the vontage phone system into 2 of the ports on the router. After everything is hooked up you will probably need to power cycle for it all to work correctly.
Please power cycle in this order:

Reboot modem - then Router- then Vontage phone system.

Hope this helps

Desktop and two laptops won't work with modem & router now


Probably you used the wrong type of ethernet cable, a crossover one. Try another Ethernet cable but this time a straight one.

How to change Linksys wireless router?


When you get cable internet, the cable company provides you with a modem (usually). From the cable modem you can hook up the Linksys router with an ethernet cable and it will work just fine. Hook the router up to the desktop or laptop with another ethernet cable if you need to make changes to the router security or whatever. The router address is generally 192.168.1.1. YOu can type that address right into the internet address and you router page shoud show up. If you have been using the Linksys router with the phone line all you need is to connect it to the cable modem to work. An ethernet cable is like a telephone line with a fatter connecter.

Connection to my Desktop not working.


Try and change the cable from the router to computer with a new one and do the same with the modem and see if connects. Hopefully it's just the cables that are faulty.

Ethernet Port failure new router


Check the socket in either the router or the PC. I had the same problem, only with my modem. When I inspected the port, the pins were misaligned, causing it to drop a connection. I corrected mine with a screwdriver, which is not ideal but it works.

Server not found} NetGear WGR614 Wireless Router doesn't connect me to the internet.


Dear Loud Nouises,

Your router must be connected properly to the cable modem. This must be to the wan port on the router.

Next, the router must be set-up accordingly to recognize the modem's internet connections. Please ask for the IP address.. and other relevant informations from your internet provider.

Set -up your computer using the internet connections wizard on each of your respective computer.

This should work fine if all connections were correctly configured.
