Hi Edwards.

Most routers can be configured either using a USB cable, or the Ethernet cable (RJ45 terminated with square shaped connector).
Check the kit instructions, and find out if there is a procedure to do setup using the ethernet cable.

If instead you have to connect USB cable to the wifi transmitter, and transmitted is attached to the router, you need to connect a laptop to the transmitter to configure the transmitter, and then configure the PC to control the kit.


If that does not work, regarding the Road Runner kit, I could not locate the model, maybe more info on model number and manufacturer of the kit can help (eg seller URL, or manufacturer web address from instructions). Try giving me kit and router info if the above does not work.

1- in order of what connects to what
1- linksys connects to road runner modem. Should be a network connection on the back of the router that says uplink. This connects to the road runner`s wired port on the back of the unit.
Vonage phone will/should connect through the wireless section an in your personal wifi connection when you get the router wireless setup. Name your wireless something that other people are not using and then tell vonage phone to connect to that network.
Hope this helps

Purchase either a USB stick that adds wireless capability to your laptop/desktop, or purchase a PCI wireless adapter-card for your desktop, and install it.

Then, you can move the cable-modem much closer to the cable-outlet, and then connect the cable-modem to a newly-purchased wireless-router ($20 to $70) to receive/transmit over your in-home wireless network.

Hi, to connect your computer to the wireless network of the router you need to have a wireless adapter. The bluetooth adapter will not work in this case as the router does not communicate with the bluetooth signals.

Purchase a wireless adapter like NETGEAR WG111

Rate it, if it helps.

You need first to configure the linksys router to work with your road runner cable internet, if you have the setup CD for the router you can use to configure the router but if not you need to manually configure the router to work with Road runner cable internet by accessing the router setup page, if you're not aware on how to manually configure the router to work with road runner you can call this number so a Tech can walk you through with the process 1-877-787-8749...

Connecting a router so I can use a second desktop pc


In addition to a wireless router you will need a wireless reciever for each PC you wish to have working simultaneously (assuming the PC does not already have a wireless networking capability) .

The wireless receiver is usually a USB or laptop PC slot device which you plug in to the PC and after installation of the necessary software (usually supplied with the device) you can surf wirelessly. The USB type wireless devices are about GB£20 to buy .

Use of router in network


Try reset the router & cable modem. There ia a reset (very small) button on the back of the wireless router & the modem. Disconnect the power cords to both. Use a pen & hold in for 10 seconds (router & modem). Re-connect power (router & modem) & restart PC. If your service still has not returned. Chances are it's your internet provider & not you. Double check by connecting your modem directly to your PC.

Luck!

Not working on my 2nd computer


I am going to assume Vista is the first OS and both machines are windows computers and you are accessing the cable service through a DI-524 wireless router. There are many issues that can relate to your problem. First does your cable provider require you to logon to access the internet. If so, try using each computer individually (with the other one logged off and shutdown) with the existing wireless connection. If this works both machines are configured correctly for the router and the issue appears to be dealing with the logon possibly having it performed by the router if possible. Second if that does not work -- on each machine bring up a command prompt window (Start > All Programs > Accessories > Command Prompt) and type ipconfig and press enter. There may be multiple local area connections but look for one with a 192.168.?.? address on each machine. The first question mark should be the same on both machines and the second different. If this works both machines have connected to the router and we are seeking another issue. If this is not true one machine has a configuration problem and cannot access the wireless router (probably the Windows ZP computer from you description). We will need to diagnose further once you answer the above questions.
