1) unplug the power for both the Linksys router and the Westell DSL modem from power for 5 minutes. Also disconnect the DSL modem from the phone line during this time frame.

2) plug the power for the modem back in, wait until the online indicator light is lit up and green.

3) make sure the ethernet cable for the linksys is connected to the modem and the INTERNET port on the linksys. power the linksys back up

4) connect an ethernet cable between your computer and a numbered port on the linksys. make sure the wireless is disabled (button on laptop, or pull the adapter from your desktop).

5) open up internet explorer (or firefox). if a webpage opens, the router has a good connection to the internet, and if not, don't worry about it right now, we'll pick back up at step 9.

6) type 192.168.1.1 in the address bar and you'll get a username and password dialog box (no user name, password is admin).

7) click on the wireless tab. change the wireless network name (also known as a SSID) to something unique and save the changes. write the network name down.

8) when the wireless page loads back up, click on where it says "wireless security" directly below the wireless tab. set the security mode to WPA and type in a password (8 or more characters, any mix of letters and numbers). make sure you write this down. click save at the bottom of the page. you just secured your wireless.

9) if you didn't get a web page to open at step 5 (such as msn, google, or yahoo), you'll need to verify with Verizon that you're using PPPoE and if you need to punch the login information into your router or not; if so, get the login information from Verizon tech support and punch it into the main page of the router. if not, ask the tech support rep what the IP address of your router is on the internet (he'll be able to pull this up); if it's 192.168.1.anything, you may need to change the linksys's ip address and the range of the home network addresses to make it work. )I have mine set to 10.0.0.1 with an ip address pool between 10.0.0.5 and 10.0.0.254.)

also, remember that linksys's tech support number is 1-800-326-7114.

You can access your wireless router by first running you ethernet cable from pc to wireless, then in address bar, type 192.168.1.1 and this will enter the wireless router's software. If it asks for username and password, try typing admin for both.

Wireless router wont connect to the internet


this would be mine that no computer is connecting to the Internet right now?

here's what we need to do. We need to identify first what Internet connection type you have in there.

have checked connection on the network as well, first and foremost - modem-router-computer is the connection you have.

For cable connection, you need to do a mac cloning on the computer

For DSL connection you need to have a PPPoE connection type on the router

For cable connection:
> access the router setup screen -
> on your IE - address bar 192.168.1.1
> no username and password is admin
> on the setup tab there is a mac clone service
> enable it and hit the clone button
> save the settings after

For DSL connection:
> access the router setup screen -
> on your IE - address bar 192.168.1.1
> no username and password is admin
> under setup tab - look for internet connection type
> set it to PPPoE connection
> try to connect and save the settings there.

Cannot install D-Link router


You may try typing admin on the username field. Just leave the password field empty.

Once you're in the setup page, click on WIRELESS tab which on the left side of the page. On the Wireless page, you will see the wireless settings set in the router. You may also enable the wireless security on that page if there is not security enabled yet.

Please check this for your reference http://support.dlink.com/Emulators/di524/h_wireless.html

Hope this helps!
