Hi Chapers,
Before resetting the router need to know the settings of your new service provider which can be changed so that it can worked with your new service provider. If the router settings are correct and you are connecting you router wirelessly with computer, need not to do anything else if it was working previously.

Both My Inspiron and linksys will not connect to my ISP. They say both are receiving an invalid IP address! I have used all trouble shooting techniques including trying to release and reset! Even went as...


Step 1: Plug the computer (ethernet wired) directly into the modem. Power cycle the modem and when all the light come on you should have internet. If not call your ISP to trouble shoot.

At this point we should be able to determine if it is a PPPoe connection (needs username and password to connect) or if it logs in automaticly.

Step 2: Plug the router back into the modem and the computer plugged wired (ethernet) to the router. Remove power from both the modem and the router. Plug the modem back in first, once all the lights are on plug in the router. Try to connect.

Step 3: Log in to the router via its IP address (normally 192.168.1.1), if no one has reset the user name password it should admin for both. If it has been reset, you will need to know what the user name and password are to continue.

Step 4: Under setup if in step 1 you found you needed PPPoe, then you need to set that under the setup tab. Make sure you use the user name and password provided to you by your ISP. If you dont need PPPoe then make sure this is set to obtain IP automaticly.

Step 5: save settings. Once the router restarts, try to connect again.

If these step do not work, let me know:

1. who is your ISP?
2. What modem do they use?
3. What is your IP address when plugged directly into the modem?
4. What is your IP address when plugged into the router?

I will be around for about 1 more hour, its 2PM central time now.

you can log into the netgear.

the ip address and the password are usuall underneath it.

connect it to yout laptop or pc and login using the details. once logged in, you will be prompted to insert new services provider details, or if its a DHCP connection and you have your router plugged into the wireless netgear, it will pickup the settings, all you will need to do is define SSID (wireless name) and password.

any probs let me know

How do I connect my linksys wireless router?


Here are the steps :

1.Attach the antennas to the Linksys wireless router.

2.Place the router in a central location, making sure it's not surrounded by metal. (A signal can't be obtained through metal.) The router should be located so that the distance between clients (computers) is somewhat equal. This will create a better connection.

3.Plug the Ethernet cable into the "Internet" port on the back of the Linksys router.

4.Connect a computer to the router by plugging another Ethernet cable into the Ethernet port on your computer and attaching the other end to one of the available ports on the back of the router. You can choose any port except the one labeled "WAN."

5.Plug the router into an electrical outlet.

6.Wait for the power light to stop flashing, at which time the router is finished booting up. While the router is booting, the power light will be blinking. This process may take a few minutes to complete.

7.Reboot your computer so it can access a new IP address from the router through the Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP).

Configure the Router procedure.

1.Open your web browser, type " http://192.168.1.1/ " into the address bar and hit "Enter."

2.Use "Admin" as the username in the pop-up box and leave the password blank.

3.Connect to the Internet and click on "Internet Setup."

4.Select your connection type from the drop-down menu. Choose "DHCP" for cable modems or "PPPoE" for most DSL modems. If you are unsure of these options, check with your ISP.

5.Set a service set identifier (SSID) to identify the router and change the password.

6.Encrypt your wireless connection using a Wireless Encryption Protocol (WEP) key. Under the "Wireless Security" option, enter a passphrase and click "Generate." This will generate a password which will need to be used by any client connecting to your router.

Can't connect to internet thru wireless router


You need to have an Internet Service Provider. You connect the router to a modem from the cable Service Provider or through the phone line for BT. Then you can connect wired or wirelessly to internet through the router.

I set up my linksys wireless router this morning on my desk top which has high speed or DSL and I like to have it on my laptop also. I need instructions on how to ave it on both computers,


If your laptop has a wireless card built in - or external, you will be able to get the wireless signal.  You need to open your wireless dialog - Start > My Network Places > View Network Places

I dont know haow to connect Linksys Wireless-G Broadband Router with SpeedBooster WRT54GS - wireless router


  1. Connect your modem to the Internet port of the router. Your computer needs to be connected to one of the 4 Ethernet ports at the back of the router.
  2. Access the router's setup page by launching Internet explorer and typing 192.168.1.1.
  3. It will ask for a username and password. Leave the username blank and password is admin.
  4. Once your in the setup page, set "Internet connection type" with what your ISP requires you to have.
  5. If you have cable ISP, usually it is "Automatic Configuration-DHCP."
  6. But if you have DSL ISP, then it will be PPPoE. You need to know your username and password from your ISP.
  7. Better yet, verify your Internet connection type from your Internet service provider.
Hope this helps!

Need ip adress and primary dns to install a wireless router


DSL or cable? DSL you will only need your usernam/password combo for PPPOE, cable you should be able to just plug it in and go. set your router for DHCP and it will pull all pertinent info from your ISP's DHCP and DNS servers.

I can not get on the internet through my Linksys Model WRT54G.


You're a little sparse on details there. The first thing to try is to access the router itself, by typing http://192.168.1.1 into your browser's address bar. Try it first with wireless, and if that fails with a wired connection. If you can access the router, log on and make sure the DHCP settings are correct for your service provider (who can provide you with those details if you need them). If you can access it with a wired connection, but not with wireless, reset the router using the tiny reset button on the back - it may be that it's encrypting the connection and you don't know the key, and resetting it to factory defaults will solve that problem.
