Have you gone to your new ISP providers website, and surfed the internet?
I know, most routers have to be registered to gain access to the internet.
You might have to manually input the MAC address (found on the bottom of the router) to your ISP, then sometimes it takes anywhere from 5 minutes to 1 hour for the router to register, depending on your ISP.

After the router is registered, you can plug or wireless connect to the internet.

We moved and when everything was hooked up i cant get a connection from my linksys wireless router to my laptop


Ok - hook the power to the Linksys - then RESET - the folded out paper clip will work. Once RESET - hook it up to your ISP provided MODEM [ You must have this service to get on the web] now unplug the Modem provided by your ISP or provider - and unplug the router.
WAIT
15 seconds - then
hook up the MODEM from the provider - then hook up the router - then restart the laptop - if wired it will need to be plugged in - if wireless - run your 'search for a wireless signal and you should have it.

Thanks

to star config you need to be connected with ethernet cord rj-45
or conenct via wireless by conencting to linksys on wireless

admin user: blank
admin pws: admin

*choose a protocol on your linksys router on internect conenction type:

check isp protocol :
dhcp: needs serail number of mac address
it picks up automatic
pppoe: needs username and pws from isp

*the ip address has to be diferent from the isp modem:
isp modem 192.168.1.1 linksys 192.168.1.1 incorrect
isp modem 192.168.1.1 linksys 192.168.2.1 correct
change the ip on lan settings on your router

*wireless: ssid by default is linksys
ssid: linksys
wep : none
to setup wireless
access the wireless basic
change the ssid to any network name
enable the wireless password

No internet connection


When connecting the devices make sure that you turn on the device in this manner: modem (wait for the lights to be solid) then router, then the computer.

Check if you can get online, if not then follow the steps below:

1. Open a web browser and type this in the address bar: 192.168.1.1

2. Then you will be in the setup page of the router. You need to know what is your connection type obtained from your ISP.

If DHCP, internet connection type should be: Automatic Configuration - DHCP should be selected.

If PPPoE, select PPPoE and type the username and password provided by your ISP.

3. Then save the changes.

Once that the internet connection is working from the PC hardwired connected to the router, then check the wireless settings under the wireless tab. Take note of the SSID, wide channel, and the wireless security and preshared key.

Put those settings on the wireless adapter of the laptop and you should be able to get online.

I hope this works! Good luck!

for that we need to know the ip address of xbox and port numbers for xbox.contact microsoft for knowing the port numbers and their range,so we can do a port forwarding on your router
