Okay, you may have DSl or cable as your ISP, let me post both for other's use

better if you start off with a clear 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. this router's reset may be hidden, use a paper clip or a pen to do this, it will be tagged "reset" eitherway.

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.
for DSL ISP (that uses PPPoE)

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 line or an item sayiong "Internet connection type" click the drop-down menu then set your connection to PPPoE. you will then see a space for your username and password, type in the UN and PW from your DSL ISP, then click on "save settings" on the bottom part of the page.

-after this go to the Status tab and you will see your internet IP address, if not you should have a "Connect" button on the middle of the Status page.

for Cable ISP

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.

Hi Vivian,

Chweck you cables and where they are conencted.

You will need to make sure that the Comcast modem is providing internet, you can do this by connecting your laptop to it using ethernet directly if it connects to the internet, that will be a good thing.

From your comcast Modem, the ethernet Cable should go to the linksys where it says "WAN". this should give you an internet connection and make your comcast modem communicate with your linksys Router.
