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.

I have a broadband router with SRX400 and im trying to install it on my laptop and i cant. i need help installing it. i have the disk but it keeps telling me it cant connect


Do you have CD? Start>Control panel>Add Remove and uninstall it. Restart computer. You have to use the "lan" cord with the cd to install it. Reset your cable or phone modem by the back reset switch. Install cd and follow the directions that cam with it in exact order or you have to remove it again. Do not hook it up to your internet modem until instructed to do so. Linksys does have a 1-800-326-7114 customer support line to help but if you do call them make sure you have it completely uninstalled.

Can I use more than one modem on my phone line to support multiple computers? Also, where can I obtain a list of modems compatible with a Netopia 2249n? Thanks


Hello

The short answer is no you really cant use multiple modems. The internet should come in to your home via the modem, then go in to a ROUTER. Many times the router will have 3 to 5 ports on the back to hook your other computers too. This means running cables. Another way is to use WIRELESS cards that you can find on the net or from best buy.

If your router does not have any extra ports you need to buy something called and ethernet switch. Again they come in 4 and 8 port models up to LOTS AND LOTS Of ports for big companies. You hook the switch in to the router, then hook the computers in to the switch.

I hope this helps you

Just connected router to clear network modem and VoIP (wireless phone service), now when the phone ring, it disconnects me from the internet and the connection is lost until the phone call is complete.


Is your modem a DSL or cable modem?
If it is a DSL modem do you have a DSL filter on each phone line to the phones in your house?
The DSL modem does not need a DSL filter on the phone line.

Wndr 3300 net gear router wont work with hn 9000 hughes net modem


I went to the Hughes web site to check out the modem. They say it is also a router. I think you will have to disable the router abilities of your WNDR 3300 Net Gear Router.

Get into the Netgear setup by loging on to it.In its WAN setup select Static IP Address and set the Static IP Address to the same as the hughes modem, except for the last number which should be about 50 greater. IE: Hughes 192.168.12.1 and Netgear 192.168.12.55.

In the DHCP setup, disable the DHCP Server

In the Wireless setup, Give your network a name is SSID. You should also set up security to keep others off you internet connection with a WEP key.

I hope this helps.

Connecting windstream dsl modem to xbox


Did you get a router, the dsl modem it self wont do much good, you need a router so it can assign your xbox an IP address. You need to have a router hooked up to the DSL modem, and the xbox hooked up to the router.

Router not hooked up properly


Router setup
If you are using the cd that comes with the router, that is the problem. You do not have to use the cd. Go to the control panel and un-install the program that the cd installed.
then:
Shutdown your PC. Unplug the power from the router and the cable modem.
Wait 30 sec. then plug in the power to the cable modem, wait 30 sec. then plug the power to the router. Wait till you have "Internet" light then restart your PC. The PC should pick up an IP address and you should be able to get on-line.



If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

Need to hook up Belkin G wireless router to Motorola SB5120


Plug your cable line into your modem, make sure it's tight, but don't use a tool. Next plug the ethernet line from the modem to your PC ethernet port. Then plug in your power to the modem. Allow your modem to sync. Don't use the USB line at all. Do not even hook it up unless your computer doesn't have a working ethernet line. Don't run the disk either, it will only install the modem driver that is only used if you use USB.

If you have issues connecting after that, you may have to go into your ethernet adapter settings and make sure that it is using DHCP. DSL usually uses a different setting (PPP I think) and you will not be able to connect.

By the way, excellent choice in modems.
