  • 2Use this open port to connect the old router to the new routers WAN(wide area network) port. If your old router has an uplink port, use this instead of the last LAN(local area network) port and keep the last LAN port open.
  • 3Connect the computers to the ports on the new router.
  • 4Configure the new router settings to match the old router settings.
  • 5Use IPConfig to check you current IP address
  • 6Use this information to create a static IP on the computers connected to your network.
  • 7Set the Default Gateway to the IP address of the router in which the computer connects.
  • 8Check that all computers can access the internet and "see" each other on the network.

    I have bsnl broadband connection; i am using a desktop to connect the internet,but i cant able to connect other laptop with wifi. i need bellow things with step by step instruction: 1.connecting one...


    Your router has an lan address or IP. Something like 192.168.1.1. This is what you must connect to. Each of the machines you want to connect must have (in this example) an IP number between 192.168.1.2 and 192.168.1.225. As long as your machines all have a unique IP they should all connect to your router. Your modem will have a gateway and typically this will be something like 10.0.0.1. So setup for one machine may look like this [192.168.1.3 subnet 255.255.255.0

    To find these setting, click on your lan connection, select "properties" and choose "Internet Protocol TCP/IP". Here you will see these settings. Your router guide will give you these settings, make sure you get them from your router guide.

    Setting Up a Wireless Network


    You can still use your existing Linksys router with your cable modem. In fact the router your have is designed to work with DSL/Cable Broadband connections.

    1. Make sure to properly connec the devices in your network. Modem will be connected to the Internet port of the router. Then, laptop will be connected to one of the 4 Ethernet ports of the router. For initial setup of your router with modem, you need to hardwire laptop to the router.
    2. Press and hold reset at the back of the router for about 15 seconds.
    3. After 15 seconds turn off the router and then turn off the modem. Wait for a minute.
    4. Power on modem and wait for the lights to be ready.
    5. When modem lights are on, turn on router.
    6. There should be 4 lights on. Power should be steady green. Internet, WLAN and Ethernet port.
    7. Checked if you have Internet connectivity on your laptop while it is wired to the router.
    8. If Internet is working, disconnect laptop from wired connection to the router and check available wireless network that laptop can detect.
    9. The default wireless network name that the Linksys router broadcasts is "linksys". Connect to it which is an unsecured wireless network.
    10. Once you are successfully connected, check Internet.

    Hope this helps!

    Make sure that all the network connection settings on your new computer are the same as your old computer. Also, does it show you are connected to your network?
