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.

To connect to the Internet you need a few extra things aswell as a network card and install the LAN card driver. 1. You need to sign up with an Internet service provider. 2. Connect a LAN cable from your computer to the DSL or cable modem 3. You need a DSL or cable modem and connect and configure the modem to inaccordance with your Internet service provider's instructions. 4. Install Internet Explorer if it has not been done. 5. If everything has been done correctly, when you open Internet Explorer youcan access the Internet.
If you have a wireless router and it is connected to the DSLor cable modem then - To connect to yourwireless router, the router needs its wireless settings to be configuredwith the SSID, encryption key etc., also the wireless cards in all thelaptops/computers needs to be configured with these router's wireless settings.Then the laptops/desktop computers can communicate with your wireless router.
It is possible that a neighbor purchased a wireless access point that it on the same channel and they are competing. Change your wireless channel. You could also try a hard reset. Instructions at D-Link's website. Good luck!
Wireless broadcast is usually the first thing to go when a router is failing. How old is your router? Try these steps:
Turn off computer
Remove power from router
Remove power from modem
Wait 2 minutes
Restore power to modem
Wait for modem to boot up and gain all signals
Restore power to router
Wait for router to completely powerup
Watch for wireless indicator light
Boot up computer, verify your wireless network is broadcasting
If you still can not get the wireless network to access the internet, try connecting your computer with an ethernet cable. If everything connects fine and you can access the web, it might be that your router is going bad and needs replacing.
Try running the ethernet cable from the modem to port #2 on your router. Then run the second cable from port#3 on the router to your computer. This effectively uses the router as a pass-thru and bypasses all its functions. If you are able to access the internet this way, you need to replace the router.
If you can access the configuration page of the router then check the IP configuration. Check WAN and LAN configurations. IP 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.0.1 will able u to access configuration page. Username and password hopefully be admin admin.
As is typical with PC's, the best idea sometimes is to reset it to factory default. Afterward, simply change the username/password and in the wireless settings enable a form of WPA security settings. Don't use WEP, it's too easy to crack (within minutes) by someone sitting outside your home in their car. Never hurts to reset the cable/dsl modem either (unless your wife is talking to her mother and you disconnect her).
You need to "fool" your cable box into thinking that the wireless router is the computer. This just means that the modem is locking into the first ip address it can get... it tends to block out all others. Here's how to remedy and allow everything to get access...
1 Shut off computers, routers, everything. 2. Turn on your wireless router FIRST... leave everything else off until you see it's completely booted. 3. Then with the cable connected to the modem/cable box and the router, turn on the cable box/modem and let it cycle up. This should allow the cable modem to "find" the wifi ip address as the main ip. After that, turn on any other routers, and the computers... This should allow you access to the net by any of your computers because the wifi router should give all the other comptuers and routers on the system inddividual ip addresses and all should be well... Give it a try and let me know! K
Your sister was accessing the wireless access point at school which is connected to the Internet/WEB access via a router and the school's broadband service provider.
For you to access the Internet using your wireless adapter on your laptop, you need your own wireless access point and connect it to a broadband ADSL or cable modem and then connect it to an Internet Service Provider. Some Internet Service Providers (cable and ADSL) can supply a combined modem/router/wireless Access point.
If you already have a broadband modem all you need is a wireless access point/router. You only need to configure the wireless access point and your wireless adapter so they will communicate with each other. Folow the instructions in the manuals.
After connecting your router hardwired.. do the ipconfig in the command prompt window... make a note of your default gateway...It should be as 192.168.1.xxx Enter this no... in the address bar in Internet Explorer... Access the Modem... Try to configure it with the username and the password provided from your ISP, eg bell, verizon, primus etc..
this is the manual installation of your wireless router.. make sure that the modem is in the bridged mode or DHCP mode...

Whenever you connect a different device to the cable/DSL modem the modem itself must be reset. Dont even waste a phone call to linksys. Its useless.
If you are using DSL depending on your ISP you may have to enter your account info into the router's PPoE section
Cable users should have the router set to "Obtain IP aadress automatically"
Use the reset button on the back of the router and start from scratch. Unplug the cable/DSL modem power Hook up your router WAN/Internet to the Cable/DSL modem Ethernet/LAN jack Power on the Cable/DSL Modem first, wait about a minute, then power on the router.
