I have had similar problems in the past with 3 different brands of wireless routers, including the linksys Wireles-G router. In all cases, it was the same scenario, worked fine for a year or so, and then started giving inconsistent intermittent connectivity problems. Resetting, recycling etc. etc. would work for a while and eventually it would become unusable, and I would end up replacing. I went from a D-Link wireless router, to a Belkini, to a Linksys, and now use the Apple airport wireless, which I have also recently replaced with another Apple airport wireless. So unfortunately, I can't tell you if it's me doing something to kill them or if they are just short life expectancy for wireless routers, but the only fix I have experienced is replacing the router. Good luck...

Why can't I connect to the internet via my router but when I connect directly to the modem, I have internet access


If you don't reset the modem after connecting the router, the modem is still trying to send data to the MAC address of your PCs network card.
You need to disconnect power from everything, then power up the router first.
Once the LEDs on the router settle down, power up the modem.
Once the modem's LEDs have settled down, power up the computer.
You should now be able to access the internet through the router.

The only time this won't resolve the issue is if the PPPoE negotiation is being done by the PC and not programmed into the modem itself.
This is almost unheard of with modern DSL and ADSL modems today, but if that is the issue, you will need to contact your ISP for the information you will need to program the router to do the PPPoE login through the modem and reconfigure the computer to not do the PPPoE authentication any more.

Internet connection is fine when my PC's connected directly to the modem. The router connects fine. But won't let the wired PC online. Under the "status" bar the "router" tab won't show the correct...


here are times when there is a need to connect a wired computer to an access point in order to set it up. To connect a wired PC to a Linksys access point, follow the steps below. Step 1:
Connect the PC to the Ethernet port located at the back of the access point.

Step 2:
Assign a static IP address on the computer. For instructions, click here.
NOTE: To assign a static IP address using Mac, click here.
The Access Point can be configured in four different modes:
  • Access Point
  • Access Point Client
  • Wireless Repeater
  • Wireless Bridge
The Access Point mode allows wireless clients to connect to the access point and routes traffic between the wireless and wired interface. Use this mode to create a standard wireless Infrastructure network. For instructions, click here.
The Access Point Client mode allows this device to act as a wireless client. You can connect a wired PC to the access point to connect to a wireless router or another access point wirelessly. You can enter the MAC address of the Access Point or use the Site Survey button to select the Access Point you want to connect.
NOTE: The WAP54G will only communicate with another WAP54G when set to the Access Point Client. For instructions, click here.

DHG535-2 and LAN switch issue


It sounds like the LInksys that they replaced was also a router. A router will route packets to multiple pc's that are connected to it. The cable modem just sees the router as 1 pc. When you use a switch, the cable modem will see all of your PC's. and Comcast just allows 1 pc. You will need to buy a router to use more than 1 PC which will be cheaper than using Comcasts Home Networking service which will network up to 4 pcs

Not recognized by cable modem


Turn everything off for 2 minutes, cable modem, router and pc.

Turn on modem and wait 2 minutes for the modem to sync to TW.
Turn on router after 2 mins and wait until the router syncs with the modem.
Turn on PC
It sounds like your router lost its connection to the cable modem, which happens from time to time. TW will not help with your router. I worked for a cable co and the router and modem losing sync was the at least 70% of the calls. FYI cable doesn't use DSL,just the phone co.

We keep getting dropped for known reason .


Your internet modem needs to be reset to find the router first. The modem will find the first address when rebooting the entire system or if something gets unplugged..
I've had great success doing the following:
First of all turn off ALL computers, routers, modem ...everything... Then connect power to the main routing source... usually you've got your modem plugged into this.. Just start the router first with all ethernet cabling etc disconnected. Then secondly, connect power to the modem... As the modem connects, it will find the router ip address first... then you are set to turn on the wireless, and the other computers... and the router should designate proper ip addresses for all the peripherals and keep them connected without dropping someone off to allow the other address on... Hope this is clear.... So first the main router, then the modem followed by everything else... Let me know what happens ... and if you need more help...

Stop.

Forget about wireless at the moment.

Power down your modem, router, pc and laptop.

Plug in a wired cable between the router and the PC and a wired cable and the laptop(you have ethernet cards in both, right?).

Power up the modem and let it completely cycle.

Power up the router.

Power up the PC.

Try accessing the internet from the PC.

Power up the laptop.

Try accessing the internte fro the laptop.

If this works write next week when you get back from vacation and we will get wireless working.
