Re: g router wont work through vista or satellite dish
-- who is your internet service provider -- what is the operating system of your computer? -- is this working fine before or is this a brand new router
you may try this and see if this help solve your problem. make sure your computer is directly connected to the router
Step 1: Shutdown the computer. Step 2: reset the router while power on then Unplug the router’s power cable. Step 3: Unplug the Broadband modem’s power cable and wait for 30 seconds. Step 4: Plug in the Broadband modem’s power cable and wait for its lights to appear stable. Step 5: Plug in the router's power cable once the modem’s lights appear stable. Step 6: Power on the computer on and configure the router settings Step 7: test the Internet connection.
if this still didnot work, upgrade the firmware of your router
configuring the router settings will depends who is your provider. if your isp is dsl you need to configure your ISP username and password on the router. if your router is a cable no need to change any settings on the router. it should automatically work
if you are still having trouble configuring your device, try to call supportrix and use supportcall as your promo code for 1 free technical support.

if you connect the computer to the modem, does it work ? If that works then the modem is working working properly. now connect the modem and the computer to the router. open the set up page of the router. here you can change the settings of the router.
You don't need CD to set up router Click here to know more about how to set up router.
The router will work properly with your internet connection if you have the right configuration. There is a configuration for cable internet connection and broadband internet connection. If you are using a broadband internet connection some of the ISP are providing a username and password before you can access the internet connection, so in your router, you will have to use the PPPoE username/password type of configuration. If you have cable internet connection, choose Dynamic IP DHCP and clone the mac address of your NIC by clicking the Clone Mac address.
Just in case if you don't know how to access the configuration page of your router follow the steps 1. plug your router to your computer via ethernet cable 2. If you are using windows XP - click start - click run - type cmd - press ok - type ipconfig on the black screen - look for the default gateway (this is the ip of your router) - open internet explorer - type http://the default gateway that you found - press enter - under internet, choose manual configuration - save all settings after providing the correct configuration.
3. If you are using windows vista/7 - click pearl button - click start search - type cmd - right click the black icon up at the top - left click run as administrator - click continue - on the black screen type ipconfig - check the default gateway - open up internet explorer - type http://the default gateway that you found
let me know if this helped you we'll see what else we can do
1. check if there are lights on the specific router port where you have connected the Vista (e.g. if it is on port 2, check if there are lights on #2 at the front panel of the router). 2. check the ip address by going to command prompt (click start-run-type cmd press enter. on the command prompt, type ipconfig/all) 3. ip address should be similar to what your Windows XP is getting. Subnet mask, gateway, and DNS servers should be identical.
Eg. If XP has a 192.168.1.100 IP, your Vista should have 192.168.1.x IP address where x is a variable number other than 100.
4. If your IP address, subnet mask, default gateway, and DNS seems aligned for both PCs, check your browser settings. Open IE, go to tools, internet options, network connection and make sure that never dial a connection is selected.
who is your broadband provider? Is this cable or DSL connection? Setting up the router is done via http://192.168.1.1. Leave username blank, password is admin. If you have Cable ISP, then make sure you have "Automatic Configuration-DHCP" selected and MAC address Clone is enabled on Setup > MAC address Clone (click Clone, and Apply). If it's a DSL connection and your broadband provider gave you a username and password, select "PPPoE" for Internet Connecton Type, and enter in your DSL username and password. Next verify if your modem is communicating with the router by going to the Status page and by verifying that you have an Internet IP address. If none, wait for a few minutes and power cycle your modem and router.
You could do this, it would be a bit of work! You would have to dedicate the computer with the sprint card to provide the internet connection to your router, which would then supply all the other computers with internet.
Assuming you have windows XP or Vista on the machine with the sprint card you would enable Internet Connection Sharing, which would provide an internet connection into whatever is plugged into the ethernet port, your router.
Ok I have done it a little different sometimes... try this approach...
First connect up the DSL Modem to the PC via Ethernet.. Configure the modem from the PC using the Connect to the Internet Wizard... enter all ya ISP details Logon, Password etc.
Once this is going OK.. Disconnect the Modem... and then connect it up to the "Router" using the "Uplink" port and when connect ya Modem to the router... then connect another Ethernet cable from Router to same port on ya PC.
Then simply use the network setup Wizard to set up an Internet Connection and connect up via ya router thru ya modem...
generally works for me....
