On you wired computer

Reset (press the reset button on the back for 1 min) and power cycle the router.

open your internet browser. type 192.168.1.1 in the address bar.
type admin for the password.
set the internet connection type to ( DHCP, if you have a cable provider, PPPoE if you are using a username and password from your internet provider ) then save the settings. Then click on the "MAC address clone" subtab. save the settings.

just power cycle your modem and your router then you will be online after that.

Connecting a Linksys WRT54GL. no internet connection detected


The ISP modem connects to the main LAN port on the router. The PC connects to any other port. Done. You should have internet via wire at this point.

peter_picasa:

You cannot use a Wireless Access Point (WAP) to connect directly to your IPS's modem. A WAP does not provide the ability to share a single IP address on the internet like a router does.

Either return the WAP for a refund and buy a wireless router or buy an Ethernet wired-only router and plug the WAP into the LAN side of that router. You would then plug the WAN side of the Ethernet wired router into your modem.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Well you'r ISP connection is good since you have internet when connected to the modem (just be verry prudent since you have no security when connected to the modem)

First verify with you'r ISP what type of connection you have (STATIC IP, DYNAMIC IP/DHCP, PPPOE, etc...)
Ask you'r ISP if they can reset you'r account (MAC ADDRESS, PASSWORD, etc...)
You can also verify the connections from the modem to the router (CABLES, CONNECTORS, etc...)

Good luck!

Not connecting to internet


You will need to reset your modem or have your internet service reset. When you have a PC connected directly to the modem the modem locks on to the NIC MAC address and will not assigin a pubilc IP address to the Linksys router until the modem is reset. I hope this helps.

Cant connect to the internet with linksys wrt160nv2


if this is DSL connection then you have to configure your modem before you connect router

follow this
first disabled wireless on your modem/router

.1) Turn off DHCP on your modem/router I am assuming this is verizon westell
2. Configure the first VC port to Bridge-Bridge mode
3. Keep hitting "apply" in the windows until the 7500 reboots
4. Plug the "Internet" port on the linksys to one of the normal ethernet ports on the modem /router
5. Turn on the Netgear and wait for the green Internet light to go solid

good luck if this does not work provide more info on your setup

Setup linksys wrt54g2 broadband router with prolink h9200 modem


You probably will need to make some configuration changes in the Linksys router, or in your computer, or both. Your are correct that you connect the Linksys WAN connection to the LAN connection of the modem. If your connection type is PPPOE, you will need to set that up in the Linksys with the username and password provided by your ISP, so the modem will allow you to login and connect to the internet. If that is how you were connecting to the modem with your computer, you will need to configure a new LAN connection in the computer in order to connect to the Linksys. You can then configure the Linksys through your web browser to connect to the modem.


If you find my suggestions to be helpful, please share with us some details so that others may benefit from knowing the whole story. Thank you!

I need help!!!!!!!!!!!!


What is you modem? Who is the ISP? First you have to check if the internet is working when your pc is connected to the Ethernet port of the modem and not the USB port if there is any. check the ip address of the pc connected to the modem and make sure that the DEFAULT GATEWAY is not the same as 192.168.1.1. if the address is the same you have to change the linksys router ip address from 192.168.1.1 to 192.168.2.1.

set the internet connection type of the linksys to obtain an ip. then save it.

switch off the linksys router then connect the modem to the WAN / INTERNET port. Plug the power adapter back in then wait for the lights to be stable. please note that the power light must be solid green. if it's blinking it's bye-bye to the router.
lastly check the internet if it's working.

Wireless internet connection


I may be able to help with this...but I need a detailed description of how you have things connected between the XP desktop, the cable, modem, the Linksys router, and the laptop. Also, is the Linksys router new?

Typically, the wan port on the wireless router connects directly to the cable modem with a cat5 network cable....then the desktop pc connects to the router...on port 1 for example...with a similar cable. Once the wireless router is set up properly, the laptop should then be able to connect using wireless.

Cannot obtain internet through router


Try resetting the router and modem. Unplug them both from the electrical outlet. Leave them unplugged for at least 1 minute. Then plug the modem in, let it establish a connection, then plug the router in. Do this with your pc turned off. After you reset the router and modem, plug them all back together and into the pc, then turn the pc back on.
