    It is a wireless G Broadband router Model #WRT54G. ISP is bellsouth which is now at&t. I have also tried to reset it and when it asks for the user & passw, well I leave the user blank (as told in the instructions) & typed "admin" for the password. Well it didn't work. It just kept repeating itself.

    Did it and it worked letting me go to setup again but it still left my connection as local making it unable to work on the web. I rechecked the cables and they're the same.

    Okay, where you say you reset it are referring to the button on the back or runing the setup cd.

    You can reset it one more time. Push the reset button on the back of the router for 10 sec. while its power on. You should see the power light flashing while your holding the button in.

    Then you try to log back back in to the router using your browser. (type And again no username and password is "admin" See if its will work.

    Just to remind you resetting it will set the router back to the factory defaults. And can you also include the brand or the model of your modem?

    What is the brand and model no. of your modem. Also what is the operating system of your computers.

    Ok, since you can now access the setup page of the Linksys router, make sure that the Internet Connection Type is set to Automatic Config DHCP, and Change the router IP address or LAN IP address to then save the settings.

    the turn off the router and the modem for one minute. Turn on the modem first, wait for the lights to go solid and then turn on the linksys. this should get you online.

    You just leave it to Alright after doing the steps that i gave it stil didnt allow you to get online?

    Can you check the status page of the router? What is the IPAddress and the DNS 1 & 2 that you have there?

    And can you also tell me how you get online with your computer directly to the modem? Do you need a username and password before getting online or does it just automatically opens your webpages when you open your internet explorer?

Zoom X7n Dsl 2/2 Modem/router/gw DSL light will not stop blinking - trying to connect with Earthlink

Earthlink is not your local telephone company? You would need to contact your local service provider. If earthlink set up your DSL thru your local telephone company, you may have to have them contact them. Does your local phone to you or do you subscribe thru what they call a CLEC?

How do i connect a wifi router to the dsl of my pc?

Your internet provider should have provided you with a modem (dsl modem) that will have a ethernet port which can be connected to a computer directly or a router to make internet available to multiple computers. Router usually comes with five ports one of them is WAN port (Wide Area Network) and other four are LAN ports (Local Area Network) The dsl modem should be connected to WAN port of your router and the LAN ports are use to connect to any computer with an ethernet cable. If the router has wireless capability you can use your laptop or smartphone to access internet wirelessly!

Router won't connect me to internet

both the dsl box and the router must be configured to work with each other.

ask your internet service provider on how to turn the dsl box into a regular modem as most are hybrid modem-routers.

Not providing valid IP addresses

make sure that your router is acting like a DHCP server.
also make sure that your pc's ip is set to "obtain automatically" under local area connection->properties->internet protocol->properties

Loss of connection to internet for no apparent reason

Can you check if this happens without the router ? if you connect your modem directly does it still drop at times ? If not , see if you can update the firmware of your router. that could help

I went from a ATT dsl modem to a net gear modem and i cannot get the net ger mode and linksys mode to talk to the computer

Most DSL providers use PPPoE (Point-to-Point Protocol over Ethernet) to establish Internet connections for end-users. To set up a Linksys router, you need to enable PPPoE on the router’s web-based setup page.
To setup a Linksys router with a DSL connection you need to perform four steps:
  1. Verifying Internet Connection
  2. Connecting the Devices Together
  3. Checking the LEDs
  4. Setting-up a DSL ISP on a Linksys Router
Verifying Internet Connection
Connect the Broadband modem to the computer using an Ethernet cable without the router installed and make sure that the Internet connection is active. If not, contact your Internet Service Provider.

Cannot complete downloads

when you say that everything works when the router is NOT hooked up to the PC, does that mean that you have the DSL modem connected directly to the computer?

then, when you hook up the router, you're connecting it BETWEEN the DSL modem and your computer?

You probably need to log in to your router and set it up to connect through the DSL modem to the internet: it may not do it automatically.

is this computer running windows XP?

if so, go to control panel, then network connections.

if you double click on the local area connection, and go to the support tab, it should list something like this:

Address type: assigned by DHCP
IP address:
Default gateway:

Try opening internet explorer, and typing in the numbers it lists for default gateway.  hopefully, that will bring up the configuration screen for your router.
