To connect your router to your network with out losing your Internet connection will depend on what kind of modem your have. If you have a modem with a built in router in it you can connect it to one of the extra network ports on the modem.


However if your modem does not have a router built into it you will have to disconnect the modem for a short time to connect the router into the network.

Note if your have a modem with a router in it the best thing to do is let it keep assigning IP addresses and turn on the DHCP server in your router and use it just as wireless access point. To do this you will need to set it to the same IP group that you already have on your network. So example if your modem has an IP address of 192.168.5.1 you will want your router the routers IP address to 192.168.5.2. The third number section is what is important. If you do not currently know the IP address of your modem and it is connected directly to your computer the link below will help you determine the IP address of the modem. The IP address listed as the gateway IP address should be the IP address to your modem. Note if you already have a router in your network this will be its IP address.

If you need more help and/or have trouble getting everything setup let me know the make and model of your network devices and how you have them connected so I can see what we need to do to get you setup with your new router.

If you connect your computer with the Ethernet adapter you should be able to get internet. Generally the drivers for Ethernet cards are generic and it will work without drivers so you can download your drivers.

Possible reason why you lost the connection with your DSL line is that the router's configuration was changed. To reconfigure your Linksys router, you need to connect your computer wired to the router.
Open a Web Browser (IE, Firefox etc.) on the wired computer and type http://192.168.1.1 and press Enter. On the Username box leave it blank and on the password box type in admin. You will then see the router's configuration page. Under the Basic Setup tab you will see Internet Connection type on the left side of the screen. Click on the down arrow button and select PPoE, type in the Username and password that was provided by your DSL Internet service provider. Once your done click on the Save setting button on the bottom of the screen. Click on the Status tab on the top of the screen. Click on the Connect button and check if you will have an IP address on the Internet IP address option. If a valid IP address is present then you should have an internet connection then.

If the laptop is wirelesly connected , Would suggest to wire it to the router first and then ensure you can browse. Once you have the router / laptop working wired, please set up the wireless connection once again.

Although cable to desktop connects to internet, my router from desktop to laptop via router won't connect.


Desk top to internet is OK.
How about Destop through Router connection to Internet OK?
Assuming you want to connect wireless from Lap top to Network, need to configure correctly for wireless in Router.
If you connect Lap top to router by wire and it didn't work that mean your router is bad.

Can't get internet connection to my lap top.ps i have a desk top.


Is your laptop wireless adapter correctly configured? It may be set to only recieve certain types of signals (802.11b, when you may beed 802.11g etc), so check if the configuration of the laptop matches the configuration of the router.

To test if the laptop can get internet at all, try to get to a wired internet line (your wireless router may have some Ethernet ports on the back; laptops usually have Ethernet connectivity), just incase your laptop is set to block all internet signals coming in.

Hope this helps!

Laptop


the internet cable should be connected to the "Internet" or "WAN" port on the router. Your PC should be connected to one of the regular ports on the back of the router and your laptop can be connected just like the pc, or it can connect wirelessly.

Then you should be able to see the internet from your laptop.
