I want use my 2wire (2701HG-B) Wireless Router without the dsl line


Modem and routers are considered only as access point you computer may be able to connect to your router but if you dont have a DSL line you will not be able to go on line... if you dont want a DSL line there are service that concentrates on wireless alone... in this DSL line are not required nor router but may provide you a USB wireless adapter that has their wireless service then again try calling an Internet Service provider for this options...
thanks... Roger

Lost install disk


You don't even need the installation disk! Just do these easy steps:
Plug in your PC directly to your router. And make sure it is turned on. Also plug in your MODEM into the routers modem port.
On your computer open up Internet Explorer. Then in the address box type in: routerlogin,net
User: admin Pass: password
if password for the password does not work then just leave the box blank. Then just complete the steps.
If this works or if you need help then PLEASE email me:

email me wither it works or not!

How a conect to internet


METHOD 1 - Using Internet connection using DSL or cable connection.
1st. If you wish to connect to the Internet with a LAN cable or a wirelessly and if your computer doesn't have a LAN card or wireless LAN card you need to purchase a LAN card (to configure the wireless router) and if you want a wireless connection you will also need to purchase a wireless LAN card.
2nd. You need to select an Internet Service Provider in your area with a plan and cost to suit your requirements.
3rd. You need to decide what type of broadband connection you need, DSL or cable modem with or without a built-in wireless router, the Internet Service Provider can assist you with this.
5th. The Internet Service Provider can supply these items or advise you what make and model to purchase. They will also provide information on how to connect and setup your Internet connection.

METHOD 2 - Using USB wireless adapter that plugs into the laptop's USB port. It doesn't need a wireless router or a cable or DSL modem.
This is used mostly on laptop computers which allows Internet access anywhere the Internet Service Provide has a wireless transmitter. It uses the G3 mobile system.
This type of service usually costs more and again you need to select an Internet Service Provider that can provide the wireless coverage, the plan and costs that suit your requirements.
Installation and setting up information is supplied by the ISP.

Linksys WRT54G wireless router not compatible with Aztech modem?


Darvin, gotta love your ISP. Never fear......

if it isn't too much of a problem (knowing you have wireless setup done already), then do a factory reset on your router ** remember to copy the WEP Key if you have, or recall the PASS PHRASE so you won't have to reset all wireless devices ** Reset is located on back, you need a ball point pen to reach the reset switch.

Reset process: unplug, take ballpoint pen & insert into reset switch & plug unit back in. Sometimes tricky, but you should notice green light goes to yellow/orange upon resetting.

RESET or NOT - you want the Linksys set for ::

Connection Type - AUTOMATIC (for automatic discovery)
Router IP Address - 192.168.2.1

DCHP - ON, Addresses - 192.168.2.100 and allow 5-50 users
(for security, assign the number of DESKTOP + WIRELESS expected users +1, this way you don't get overrun without knowlege)

Take the cable from Aztech ETHERNET OUT to WAN on Linksys. (usually BLUE) (??) not 100% sure as I have the little silver pocket edition of the same Router. - power cycle (turn both DSL modem & Linksys off for 20 seconds. turn on DSL Modem, wait till it's about as ready as possible, turn on Linksys, should only take 20-30 seconds to power up & recognize.

VERIFY SETTINGS: access router - 192.168.2.1, goto STATUS. you should see IP Addressing, SubNet, DNS1 & DNS2 settings. If you do not, then you have no internet connection.

ALTERNATIVE,

Setup Linksys Router with COnnection Type: PPoE, you will need your ISP assigned ID & Password. Follow all other instructions properly.

If you still have problems, please contact me at 906-495-1707 or via Yahoo IM junodr@yahoo.com or through this website.

No internet connection


This should be connected as so. From wall outlet to DSL modem, from DSL modem to D-Link router, From D-Link router to Laptop via wireless or wired connection. You will still need the DSL modem installed but the wire coming from the DSL modem will go to uplink port on the router instead of into the laptop.

Lost setup dvd


Don't worry about the lost cd. Router will still work even without the setup disc. What is the model # of your router? What is your internet provider, Cable or DSL? For cable ISP, you'll just need to connect the Cable Modem to the Internet port on the back of the router, and your PC connect it to port number 1 on the router as well. Now try to power cycle all devices by unplugging the power to the router and the modem. Wait for 30 secs. Power on the cable modem first and wait for the lights to go steady then power on the router. Check if the internet works fine. If you're on DSL, you can do the same steps first. Otherwise, post your feedback.

Best wireless router


She could use it to connect to a Local Area Network, but without plugging it into a Wide Area Network cable (ex. DSL, Cable, Fiber, etc.) she will not be able to connect to the internet..

In other words, NO, she cannot just fire that up and get internet access without a ISP Provider.

She still has to have some way out to the internet, and that is still her dial up connection..
