Try reseting them both but sticking a paper clip in the little hole on each box and then turn them both off and on again but wait 30 seconds before turning on

How do i hook the dang think up to my computer?

Turn your cable-modem (or DSL-modem) off.
Turn the router off.
Turn your computer off.

Cable-modem <---- Ethernet cable ---> WAN (or 'Internet') port on the router.

LAN (or 'network') port #1 on router <---- Ethernet cable ---> network-port on your computer.

Turn the modem on. Wait for its lamps to settle-down to a repetitive pattern.
Turn the router on. Wait for its lamps to settle-down to a repetitive pattern.
Turn the computer on. Wait for Windows to start-up.
You now should have Internet access.

Click Start
Click Run
Type CMD
Press Enter
Press Enter
Look for output like "Default Gateway ..."
Start Internet Explorer
Press Enter
Login to the web-interface "inside" the router
Click to run the "Wireless Networking Setup Wizard" to configure the router's "wireless" configuration:
* pick an SSID
* pick an encryption-level, e.g., 'WPA'
* pick a password

Now, your "wireless" devices can connect to the router.

I bought belkin g wireless modem ruter but they didn't give me CD . How can i install this and how can i use my wireless ruter please. Thank you.

Power-off your cable-modem (or DSL-modem).
Use an Ethernet cable to connect from the modem to the WAN port on your router.
Use another Ethernet cable to connect from one LAN port on your router to the network-port on your computer (desktop/laptop).
Turn the modem on.
Turn the router on.
Turn the computer on.
Click Start
Click Run
Type CMD
Press Enter
Press Enter
Look for output like:
Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . : 1234.678.0.1
Start Internet Explorer
Type http://1234.678.0.1
to access the web-server "inside" the router.
Run the Network Setup Wizard.
Run the Wireless Networking Setup Wizard,
to pick an SSID, an encryption-level (use 'WPA')
and to pick a network-password.
Now, you can disconnect the Ethernet cable from the computer, and try using the wireless-adapter inside your computer.

My wireless router will not pick up my modem connection nor will it let me go wireless, what is the problem?

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.

The wireless network is being picked up by the laptops in the house, but there is no internet connection between the modem and the router. MY router is a Belkin G Wireless

if you connect the computer directly to the modem, does it work?
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 router is not working. i have to connect it directly to my modem

have you rebooted your modem after you plugged in your router? remember, your modem picks up you computer's ip address and stays with that address until it gets powered off and on. then it gets the ip address of whatever device you have plugged in to. if you plugged your router to your modem without power cycling the modem, then you won't connect other devices wirelessly because it does not recognize the ip address.

My computer connects to my wireless router, but I cannot get on the internet. The "Locked" light is on - I'm not sure if this is the problem .

Thank you for contacting the experts. The first thing to do is to ensure that your router is getting internet connection.

1. Plug the ethernet cord from your modem to your laptop directly by bypassing the router to see if you can get on the internet.

2. If you are able to successfully get on the internet, then plug the cord from the modem back into the correct port on the router. Make sure you have the cord plugged into the port that says "internet".

3. Once that is plugged in correctly, depending on if you are using DSL (phone company), you will need to log into the router to change the password/user ID settings. If you are using high speed (cable company), then you will not need to put in a user id/password unless you are setting up security.

4. Power cycle your router and modem simulatneously to make sure that the router picks up the modem connection and the modem picks up the router.

I hope this was helpful and thank you for contacting the experts.

I have just purchased a netbook. How do I use a router to connect to the internet. I already have a modem. Do I plug the router into the modem??? How will the netbook pick up the signal. Thanks

If you have an internal modem, just plug the ADSL directly to it. If not, the router is at the same time the modem, just plug the ADSL line to it then connect it to your netbook (of course the modem/router must be configured properly).

LInksys wrt160n v2 wireless router not connecting to internet

Most cable companies will only allow 1 active device at a time conneceted to the cable modem. When ever you change what is connected to the cable modem you must always cycle the power/reset your cable modem.

When you are reseting the units, always rset the cable modem first, wait until it boots back up then reset the router. If that doesn't fix the poblem then it may be a configuration problem.

I forgot to ask if you are cable or DSL.

Hope this helps

Problem between my Qwest actiontec modem and D-link router

You need to sign into the dlink router and check the status tab, to make sure that the router has picked up the modems IP address. it sound like it hasn't, and is just assigning lan IPs to the client machines, butd oes not have a valid WAN IP to the internet.

If it hasnt got a wan ip, you want to do a hard boot on the router .unplug the router ONLY for 30 sec, and power back up the router only ...not the modem this should allow the router to find the modem IP
