  1. Unpack the router and plug it into a power source.

  2. Connect one end of the network cable to the computer's wired network adapter and connect the other end to the wireless router (in any port that isn't labeled "Internet," "WAN," or "WLAN").

  3. Open your web browser and type the address of the router's configuration webpage. For most routers, the address to the configuration webpage is http://192.168.1.1.

  4. Once in the configuration page, you'll have to login. Use admin for both user id and password. If admin doesn't work for password, type password
  5. SSID type something like Susans_Wireless
  6. Use easy to remember password instead of all of those ramdom characters; add a couple of number in front and at back

Most DSL modems have their internal network set at 192.168.1.0/255.255.255.0
which is the same address space by default in your Linksys Router... more or less the routers IP is 192.168.1.1 and the default IP of the DSL gateway is 192.168.1.1 ... following steps to fix...

hardwire a PC to the Linksys router navagate to the webpage at http://192.168.1.1 (default username *BLANK* password: admin)

first setup all wireless options SSID: (choose something other than the default "linksys" so you can tell it from all the other linksys default systems in the world), WPA/WPA2 Encryption (so only people you know can get on)

after you set all that up then go back to the basic lan setup and change the address space from 192.168.1.1 to something else (e.g. 192.168.10.1, 192.168.21.1, or so fore)

Wbr 1310 does not seem to connect to laptop. erthnet cable is connected from modem to wan port on router and another erthnet cable from port 1 on router to laptop erthnet connection. no...


connect your computer to the router and open internet explorer and in the address bar type, 192.168.0.1 and push enter. it might be 192.168.1.1, don't remember. login and setup your internet connection. if you have cable internet set it to DHCP. if you have DSL you will have to get the settings off the providers web site. you can also try resetting the router. with the power on, press the tiny reset button on the back of the router for about ten seconds. you will see the lights go out and come back on. once the router reboots try it again. Good luck.

I just can't connect


Every tech will tell you to unplug the router and your modem from the power for about 15 seconds and plug them back in. After you wait a few, it should be working again. If not, sometimes routers will mistake the modem for IP spoofing. Resetting the router to factory will fix that. For DSL, unplug your phone, satellite and DSL filter and jack straight to the wall and try it. Finally, go straight to the modem with an Ethernet cable. If it still fails, its on the ISP's end and you should call them.

Asus WL 520gu can't connect internet


1, connect your wireless router with cable to your laptop,
2. Login into your Asus-WL520gu and setup your wireless how you want it to run." do not bother with putting your username settings in there"
3. In your Asus-WL-520gu after setting up your wireless turn the DHCP off in it.
4. Now connect the cable that you have connected to your laptop to your router instead of your laptop.
""You should now be able to connect to the wireless with your settings. and connect anything ells you want to the other 4 ports on the back of you wireless router"" note: do not connect anything to the WAN port as it is used for DSL modems; and not Routers with ADSL modem.
when connecting a router to a router - the one that is connecting you to the internet needs DHCP turned on because it is the one that will be giving you IPs and Gateway settings - the other router such as wireless router after setting it up needs its DHCP turned off - other wise you will have 2 routers trying to do the same thing with ip's and gateways. And you should never connect a modem router to the WAN port as it is a modem router and NOT just a DSL-modem. The WAN port is intended for DSL-modems only. Not only consumers but also many technicians make that mistake

LInksys wrt160n v2 wireless router not connecting to internet


Most cable companies will only allow 1 active device at a time conneceted to the cable modem. When ever you change what is connected to the cable modem you must always cycle the power/reset your cable modem.

When you are reseting the units, always rset the cable modem first, wait until it boots back up then reset the router. If that doesn't fix the poblem then it may be a configuration problem.

I forgot to ask if you are cable or DSL.

Hope this helps

Have SBCglobal with 2wire but want N wireless capability


Follow the dots -

2 wire DSL wire to back of DSL modem.

Ethernet cable out of DSL modem, to current router (if you have one).

Ethernet cable out of current router (if you have one) to new Wireless N router.

If you currently have a wireless G router, keep it, or, use the new Wireless G/N router alone. You will need to set up all security settings again if you remove your current router, and if the new router is N only, you will need to make sure all your wireless connecting computers have wireless N cards in them.

Connection


Hi Susie
With related to your particular issue it seems like that your broadband modem is not configured for the router. There are basically 2 types of connection. DSL and Cable modem. Verizon, ATT are DSL and comcast other providers give you a normal cable broadband connection. If its comcast make sure the cable from the comcast modem is going to the internet port in the linksys router and also make sure that there is a system connection the linksys router and the cable from the system goes to any of LAN 1, 2, 3 and 4 ports. Then reset your cable modem by using a pin and inserting to the reset hole in the modem. You could use the same step to reset your linksys router as well .If its a verizon or dsl connection you need to put normally your username and password in the router page. here is the link to how to configure linksys for your internet modem.
Here is a video as well on it?

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.

No IP address via LAN (+)


what reset did you do?
assuming you reset router by unplugging then plugging back into power source?
back up current config file first, to save your settings, reset to factory settings, power cycle.
