You need to call your internet serie and give them the Routing Number specific to your Linksys modem. Let me know if this helps.

I just received this in the mail and I am now trying to hook it up for wireless internet and phone service. HELP


First step: You need to make sure that your internet service is active that means the modem provided by your internet service provider is working.
next connect this router to your modem with ethernet cable provided. Use the WAN port of this router to connect to your modem
you are done with wireless part but you need to log in to the router to make it secure! If you need help with that please send a request!
Once you make router secure connect your phone service device (IP Phone) with ethernet cable to one of the LAN ports of the Linksys router. Power cycle (power down and up all devices) once if necessary!
good luck!

Will a westell modem work on a computer that had dial up.


What do you mean that pc has dial up? Did you mean that you have a dial up connection to the internet? If that is the case, using a westell modem is not necessary because dial up connection just uses a phone cable directly plug in at the back of your pc where you will see a port for phone cable. If you have a dsl connection and your pc is currently configured for fial up set-up, then you can use the westell modem but need to check first if westell modem s compatible with your internet service provider.

Sounds like a problem with your cable connection. Check your coaxial cable, and the splitter from where the cable enters your home. The tech will use a signal meter to measure the quality of your cable, and then replace the wiring if necessary.

One possible cause could be that your modem has lost it's connection to your internet service provider. To test this you can check to see if you have internet access. If your modem has a connection to the internet than you should connect a phone directly to the tel 1 port of your modem. If you have dial tone wile directly connected than there is an issue with the internal wiring of your home. In this case your best bet is to contact your ISP to have them fix the issue. If there is no internet access to the modem than this is typically do to a signal related problem. To trouble shoot the problem you will need to connect the modem directly to the main cable line where it first enters into the home. This process is known as bypassing the splitters. You will know when the modem establishes a connection by the top 4 lights becoming solid green. If bypassing your splitters resolved the issue than you will need to replace the malfunctioning splitter. Typically splitters only cost a few bucks and can be purchased from any electronic store. If at any point all 4 top green lights start to blink in sequence than you will need to contact your internet service provider to "unwall the modem". If you can not get a connection from the main line than there is a issue with either the modem or the signal coming into the home and you will need to contact your internet service provider.


I hope that information above has helped is some way.
If possible please rate this solution.

Assuming that Windows has recognized the modem, and has loaded the correct device-drivers, Windows can use the modem.

You'll need to find an Internet Service Provider that provides "dial-up" service.

You'll need to have a land-line telephone (not a cell-phone) with your local telephone-company.

Connect a 4-wire cable (not an 8-wire Ethernet cable) from the "line" port on the modem to the telephone wall-jack.

Then, follow the instructions given you by your Internet Service Provider to configure your modem to connect to their dial-up server. Or, telphone them, and their Technical Support staff will guide you through the necessary configuration steps.

My internet exployer windows will not reconize my wireless router. I changed from Knology to Mediacom cable. Before I changed I was able to go wireless. I called Mediacom and I was told to contact Netgear....


Hey Sheila,

Follow the below steps to reconfigure the router:

CONNECTIONS:

1. Connect a Ethernet cable from the modem to the WAN port of the router (isolated port).
2. Connect the computer to the router using any one of the 4 available ports. Please make sure that there is no direct connection between the modem and the computer (either using Ethernet cable or USB cable).
3. Power off the modem and the router after making the connections.
4. Power on the modem and wait for the lights, then power on the router.

RECONFIGURE:

1. Open the browser (Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox or Safari).
2. Access the router, usually with http://192.168.1.1 or http://www.routerlogin.com.
3. Login to the router with the Username as "admin" and Password as "password" (please note that the Username and Password are case sensitive).
4. Click on 'Basic settings' from the left menu and select 'Use Computers MAC Address' from 'router MAC Address' section.
5. Click Apply.
6. Once it updates the settings then power off the modem and the router. Power on the modem and wait for the lights, then power on the router.
Hope this helps.

Yes i want to find out if a cable modem will work with your dsl phone internet service?


No.

A cable-modem connects with a coax-cable to the cable-company's network, but a DSL-modem connects with telephone-cable to the telephone-company's network.

Arris Modem connected to Mediacom Service


I didn't have incoming calls for a year (didn't mind, no telemarketers). But I fixed today.

Check with your home alarm company. Turns out they can download a signal. No, it wasn't the computer's internal modem, it wasn't the phone/cable company or the arris modem.

No need for service call.

Use of router in network


Try reset the router & cable modem. There ia a reset (very small) button on the back of the wireless router & the modem. Disconnect the power cords to both. Use a pen & hold in for 10 seconds (router & modem). Re-connect power (router & modem) & restart PC. If your service still has not returned. Chances are it's your internet provider & not you. Double check by connecting your modem directly to your PC.

Luck!
