Connecting a modem and router to my desktop

Im trying to connect my desktop to the internet. When I connect the modem directly to the desktop the internet works fine on it. When i add a router to the mix the internet no longer works. Basically i connect the modem to the router and then connect the router to the computer. One thing that does work is my wirless because i have no issues getting on with my laptop.

    Who is your internet service provider? And what is the brand of your modem? So that we will be able to tell if your router is setup properly for internet connection.

When you connect all the devices make sure you reset them all after plugging them together. Also use a different ethernet cord and make sure your plugging the Modem into the WAN port on the router. If your still having same problem just let me know.

Ive connected my belkin device to may desktop. Now im trying to connect my ipad to my modem or the belkin..but getting no where lol Ipad finds the modem but say 'unable to join the network'. Any ideas...


which belkin device have you connected to your desktop? The ipad will be looking for a wireless network to connect to. So you will need a wireless router to allow it to connect, also the modems ethernet cable needs to plugged into the wireless router and IF you have the modem connected directly to the pc to allow it to connect to the internet , then you need to connect a lead FROM the router to the PC

I just starting using this wireless router and when I set it up the router software keeps saying I don't have a connection to the internet but I'm on the internet on that computer right now. ...


Make sure that there is not direct connection between your desktop and modem ( USB ). If there is any USB connection from the modem to the computer then it will go on linee but the router will not be on line.
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.

Im trying to connect my ps3 to my wireless router. it has recently stopped working. is there anything i can do?


Sure! Try this:
1 Turn your network off. Modem router, computer, printers etc. turn them off.
2. Leaving the wireless router connected to the modem with an ethernet cable (modem power off) , turn your wifi router on and let it cycle up.
3. After the router is cycled up, turn power on to your modem , leaving the ethernet cable connected to the wifi router's internet port. Let the modem cycle up .
4. After this, turn on all computers, routers and etc... no particular order.
This should allow your modem to find the wifi router and direct it to your computer via wifi or ethernet..

DSL line disconnects on WRT54GS only


Try to change the LAN IP address of your router to 192.168.2.1 by accessing the router's Setup page. You also need to set your Westell modem to "full-bridge mode". You need to ask assistance from your ISP to bridge the modem. After that, set-up the Linksys router to PPPoE then power cycle it.

You know it is not your connection nor is it your modem. Contact your isp and ask them to release and renew your ip lease. Then connect the router and retry. Should be good. Otherwise contact Microsoft

(800)936-3900,
choose 1 from the confusing menu. The line is free, open 24/7 and there is no
waiting. The best part is that they are very knowledgeable and helpful

My router doesnt seem to be Broadcasting the wireless connecition!


it may be that the router is not assigning ip addreses properly, and is duplicating the ip address on all pc's. or you have done the windows diagnose and repair or detect problems. Go to the properties of each wireless card in control panel>network connections and on the TCP/IP line click propertes again and ensure obtain ip address automatically is checked. Also go into the routers settings and ensure DHCP is enabled to give all pc's an automatic ip address. Restart all pc's and your router (not Reset) and you should get renewed ip addresses and be able to connect.
