Actually a router will not improve your speed, unless you are upgrading from one speed to a faster speed. A router is a device that controls the 'traffic' on your network. In the simplest explanation it 'routes' the uploads/downloads/etc across your network. It also enables you to have multiple computers access the internet through the same internet access such as dial-up modem, cable modem, satellite, DSL, etc.

If you are running a 56K modem for your internet connection, the only thing you can really do to improve your connection speed is to obtain a software program that accelerates the download.

There are different types of 56K modems, and some do have faster overall speeds but the speed is not a huge change.

If I am misunderstanding your question, please provide more details and I will be happy to respond with further details.

Belkin F5D7234-4 V5 MODEM LIGHT AND INTERNET LIGHT ARE BLANK. WHEN I RUN A CABLE FROM MY MODEM TOMY COMPUTER, INTERNET WORKS, BUT WHEN I CONNECT THE CABLE FROM THE MOEM TO THE BELKIN WIRELESS ROUTER, NO...


Is this a new router - or should I say did you only have the one computer hooked to the modem until now? Some ISPs use the MAC address of the installed PC to assign the network IP address. Since the Router will have a different MAC address, the modem will not recognize it. ISPs use this as security, but it makes networking impossible. However, most routers have a feature called MAC spoofing, which allows the Router to fake the modem into believing it is the computer originally attached to the modem. On newer routers this is a feature that can be automatically done during the setup wizard. You need to have the original PC hooked to one of the router ports (not WAN or INTERNET) and when the router asks you if you want to use the MAC spoof, say yes.

Hello, my internet service provider gave a preinstalled modem to use, however I would like to use my Linksys Wireless - G ADSL Home Gateway to be able to connect my devices to the internet wirelessly......


No. Your wireless router will not be recognized as a modem, nor will your service provider allow it if it would work. Plug the router into the modem.

Plug a cat 5 wire in from the yellow jack on the router to the same on the modem (it may not be yellow). The rest is software. Reboot everything and run the wizards depending upon the version of windows you are using, which you don't mention, BTW.

Your service provider may offer to help you set up your home network. Give them a call.

Thanks for your question @ FixYa.com

The router needs to have a modem to run off from, Even DSL provides modems if you do not have a modem then your DSL ISP (Internet Service Provider) did not provide you with one. I would suggest to follow the ethernet cord and see where it plugs into. You will need a modem to use a router.

Unable to connect to internet through Linksys WRT160N router. Can unplug it and internet is fine. Tried power cycling the modem and router. Linksys comes up with all lights flashing and will not...


If I understand your problem correctly, you are able to connect to the Internet when you hook the computer directly to the modem, but not when the router is connected to the modem.
If this is the case, then you need to do a power drain on the modem. Power cycling the modem is not enough to clear the NVRAM of the MAC address of your computer. You have to unplug the power cord of the modem for 15 to 20 minutes in order for the NVRAM to reset and allow the modem to recognize the MAC address of the router.
After the modem has been unplugged for 15 to 20 minutes, disconnect the power cable from the router and then connect router to the modem using the Ethernet cable.
Next with the router power cord still disconnected, plug in the power cord of the modem and allow the modem to sync to the network.
Once the modem is finished with its start-up, plug-in the power cord of the router and let it sync to the network.
After the modem has completed its start-up, it should now be connected to the internet.
Good Luck

When i hook up my router , it cannot be plugged up too the computer to give off internet, so my desktop no longer has internet when the router is hooked up


Try unplugging the power cable of the modem for about 15 minutes to let the memory clear the MAC address of the computer.
After 15 minutes, plug in the modem while connected to the router.
This should allow the modem to use the MAC address of the router and provide an IP address to it.

Internet problems


try resetting your modem, not the router. Unplug it, wait a bit and plug it back in. the modem needs to see the routers ip address so it allows connectivity. Right now the modem has your computers ip address and doesn't see the router, until you reset it. try it, it should work.

I'm trying to hook up my modem through my router. My last router had an ip address of its own which I used to tell it to work through the router. Does the sb4220?


You may want to have the modem working with your system first and hook up your router after wards.
Disconnect your router and modem.
Reboot your system.
Run your hard wire direct to your SB4220 from computer net card.
Allow to load whatever drivers necessary.
On your computer type ipconfig /all This will show you all your information.
Try the internet and see if it works. If you know the ip of your carrier, Type ping ????? ie: Ping comcast.net
If you recv. a timeout you still have problems.
If you succeed, you are their.

If not, type ipconfig /renew This will reset your ip and configurations.
Now, hook up your router and you should be their.

Disc loaded connection exc. still can't get on to internet


Lets start at the beginning, you should have a DSL/CABLE modem that connects you to the internet to begin with now. It would be helpful to know the Manufacturer and model of that device. There were probably two possibilities on how you had your internet set up before. The modem could be a modem/router with only one port in which the router supplied the username and password to access the internet. If this is the case you will need to hook a computer up to the modem directly access its default IP address usually 192.168.1.1 or .254. To access this device you will have to manually set your IP address to a address that is on the same subnet. You do this by going to network connections in control panel right clicking the Local Area Connection and clicking properties. Then scroll down in the box until you see TCP/IP click on it and hit the properties button. Set your ip address to something like 192.168.1.50 and a subnet of 255.255.255.0. You will need to change the routing pattern to Bridged Ethernet. This will allow your new router to do all the work. You will then need to hook your modem directly to the WAN port on your router and connect your computer to one of the switch ports on the router. You will then need access your router by using 192.168.1.1 or .254. You will need to set the PPoE Information i.e. username and password. Now you will need to go back to your network connections and change your ip address back to the obtain automatically. Your internet should kick on and start working. If i have made any wrong assumptions please let me know and I will follow up with a more detailed response.

Thanks
