Hi Heathcass,

Ok, generally, you must have the the modem connected to the wireless router throught the port marked WAN and the the computer that is directly connected to the router (if options like that are available), though the lan port.

That said, there could be a few reasons for your computer not being able to connect to the wireless router. Please ensure that:

  • Your computer has a wireless adaptor and that that proper drivers and software for the computer using the wireless adaptor have been loaded into the system.
  • The physical cabling are all intact and firmly connected.
  • You are able to "see" the access point by ensuring that the software loaded into the computer to be connected wirelessly says "you are now conencted to the access point and the internet"
If all these are up and running, there should not be ny problems. However, if you do face problems, try to identify the arena of error by doing a ping test. Follow these steps:

  • Go to Start>Accessories>Command Prompt and open program
  • Type ping www.yahoo.com -t This is done to ensure that there is a connection to the internet.
  • If you ger a respond that says "unable to send ping packets" or something like that, with a failure report of "request time out", you might need to reset the the WAP or modem by powering it off and on.
  • re run the ping test to see if connection is established.
whilst these are some simple troubleshooting steps, please do not hesitate to revert back to me if you should find there should be any trouble. Also, please dont forget to rate this solution if it has helped you in any way. Thank you.

Wireless broadcast is usually the first thing to go when a router is failing. How old is your router? Try these steps:
Turn off computer
Remove power from router
Remove power from modem
Wait 2 minutes
Restore power to modem
Wait for modem to boot up and gain all signals
Restore power to router
Wait for router to completely powerup
Watch for wireless indicator light
Boot up computer, verify your wireless network is broadcasting
Connect

If you still can not get the wireless network to access the internet, try connecting your computer with an ethernet cable. If everything connects fine and you can access the web, it might be that your router is going bad and needs replacing.

Try running the ethernet cable from the modem to port #2 on your router. Then run the second cable from port#3 on the router to your computer. This effectively uses the router as a pass-thru and bypasses all its functions. If you are able to access the internet this way, you need to replace the router.

Are you trying to set up the router.
You can do it manually without the CD.
Make sure that your computer is able to go online
through the modem.
If your computer is able to go online through the
modem
Then you need to connect the computer to the
router and the modem to the router.
open the set up page of the router and change the
settings of the router according to the ISP.

If the wireless internet works, the desktop doesn't


Check that the cable-modem (or the DSL-modem) is connected to the 'WAN' port on the router -- there is only one 'WAN' port.

Check that one of the 4 (or 5?) 'LAN' ports on the router is connected to the network-adapter on your computer.

Turn the router off.
Turn the router on.
Restart your computer, and it should regain Internet access, for both "wired" and "wireless" devices.

Changed from AT&T to a cable company for DSL. Trying to set up


You need to "fool" your cable box into thinking that the wireless router is the computer. This just means that the modem is locking into the first ip address it can get... it tends to block out all others. Here's how to remedy and allow everything to get access...

1 Shut off computers, routers, everything.
2. Turn on your wireless router FIRST... leave everything else off until you see it's completely booted.
3. Then with the cable connected to the modem/cable box and the router, turn on the cable box/modem and let it cycle up. This should allow the cable modem to "find" the wifi ip address as the main ip.
After that, turn on any other routers, and the computers...
This should allow you access to the net by any of your computers because the wifi router should give all the other comptuers and routers on the system inddividual ip addresses and all should be well...
Give it a try and let me know!

Setting Up a Wireless Network


You can still use your existing Linksys router with your cable modem. In fact the router your have is designed to work with DSL/Cable Broadband connections.

1. Make sure to properly connec the devices in your network. Modem will be connected to the Internet port of the router. Then, laptop will be connected to one of the 4 Ethernet ports of the router. For initial setup of your router with modem, you need to hardwire laptop to the router.
2. Press and hold reset at the back of the router for about 15 seconds.
3. After 15 seconds turn off the router and then turn off the modem. Wait for a minute.
4. Power on modem and wait for the lights to be ready.
5. When modem lights are on, turn on router.
6. There should be 4 lights on. Power should be steady green. Internet, WLAN and Ethernet port.
7. Checked if you have Internet connectivity on your laptop while it is wired to the router.
8. If Internet is working, disconnect laptop from wired connection to the router and check available wireless network that laptop can detect.
9. The default wireless network name that the Linksys router broadcasts is "linksys". Connect to it which is an unsecured wireless network.
10. Once you are successfully connected, check Internet.

Hope this helps!

Wireless connection problem


Hello:

Ok...I am a bit confused. You must have a modem to connect to the internet...whether you are broadband (cable/DSL/wireless), Dial-up or T-1 or higher (TSU/DSU).

This is how it should run once you are sure you have the modem...

Modem....to router...pc to router. If you have no router...then plug ethernet cable from your modem to your NIC card on PC.

You will have to make sure your network card is working (check for flashing green light and one solid green. Then you can goto COntrol panel and run the wizard to connect to the internet...it should work.

What kind of router do you have? Also, what is the model number of your modem?

Let me know if I can help further.

Good luck my friend.
