    Forgot to include: Pressing the reset button on the router and unplugging it from the outlet does not solve the problem. The router is still frozen.

You can find a reset on the router. Press and hold it using a pen and release after 30 secs.

    Can you ping the router? To ping it, connect a computer directly to it using a cable. Go to command prompt and type ping 192.168.1.1. If your get replies, there is a possibility that the router can be upgraded .

    If you want, I can walk you through the process, call me through skype or yahoo.

Set up the router to new modonm


It should be simple to just plug the modem into the Internet (WAN) port on the Linksys Router. You should plug the line from the wall to the modem then the modem to the Linksys router. The router should "ask" the modem for an IP address. The modem should have lights on it. Make sure that the DSL or Internet net light is solid or at least flickering.

Why is my port lights and internet lights blinking no power light comes on at all?


If the indicator for the numbers and the internet are blinking like christmas lights, this indicates that might be a hardware problem on your linksys router. A working router should show solid green power light. You may still resolve this by upgrading the firmware of the router.

Check your connection between modem and router.

Cannot connect to internet


best way to check if your ethernet is working (internet port) is by looping. get an ethernet cable, connect one end to either one of the local ports (1,2,3,4) at the back of the linksys router, the other end of that will then be connected to the Internet port or the WAN port. if the internet light goes on upfront, that will mean your internet port is working.

okay about making this work with your modem, it is still best if you start with ground zero on the router.

locate and press the reset button on the router for 20-25 seconds, then let it go, after so unplug the power, then plug it back in after 15 seconds.

once that is done follow these:

check your PC's IP.
XP
click start>run>CMD> then click "OK"
on the command prompt type in ipconfig then press "enter"

vista
click start(orb)>on start search type in CMD then press "enter"
on the command prompt type in ipconfig then press "enter"

if your IP address shows 192.168.1.xx (xx being a number from 2 to 253), you may close the window and proceed to the next step.

if your IP starts with 169.254.xx.xx please repeat resetting the device, then the power cycle.

okay so you got a good IP, follow these then.

1.open IE
2.on the address bar type http://192.168.1.1 then hit go
3.it will as you for a username and a password, leave the UN blank and the PW is admin, if that did not work try putting admin on both username and password.

when a linksys window shows up, you will see tabs like:

Setup
Wireless
Security
Applications and Gaming
Administrator
etc

on the "Setup" tab, look for a subtab that says "Mac Address Clone" then:
1. enable the clone service
2. click on the "clone your PCs MAC"
3. click on "Save Settings"

once saved, we do a power cycle including the modem.

1.turn the modem and the router off
2.after about 10 seconds, turn the mdoem and wait for the light infront of it to be stable. (like the "online" light should be solid)
3.once it is solid, turn the router back on, then let it sit there for about 15 seconds or modem until the power light is solid

once both devices are on, go back to your Linksys setup page, click on the status tab and you should be able to see an IP address on the internet section, once you have it, you're now online.

When i try and set up my wireless router it tells me the router is not detected


Please ensure that you have the router connected via the blue cable directly to your computer's ethernet port. You should be able to interface into your router's config page by typing in 192.168.1.1 in the web browser expolorer bar. Hope this helps, however, please do get back to me should there be anything else. Thanks.
