Won't connect to internest.


first there should be 2 cables connected the device.
1) power adapter
2) ethernet cable from either a dsl modem or a cable modem connected to the wan connector
with most cable modem service its usually dhcp meaning you are always connected to the internet
with some there is ppoe connection where a user name and password is used to make a connection to be on the internet with the dsl modem
there are some dsl companies that are dhcp just like the cable modem companies.
with the ethernet cable connected the wan port on your router there should be some kind of activity light on the router but check with the type connection from your dsl or cable internet provider. also you will need a second ethernet cable to connect your computer to setup and configure the wireless settings and wep protection.
need more info?

Internet Connection Issue: How to do a Sequential Power Cycle


Most of the time we worry about why our Internet Connection suddenly goes off without warning and when this happen, we find ourselves nowhere to run for help or cramming to call a technical support line ending up paying for a simple support such as a Sequential Power Cycle. <br /> Internet Technology backbone is based on transmission signal. Signals can sometimes "time-out" causing your modem not to detect connection thus kicking your Internet off. This sort of problem is so usual that most people tend to overlook it. That is why I'm writing this tip as sort of a "First-Aid" for non-technical people to patch their Internet "time-out" problems. <br /> <br /> How to do a Sequential Power Cycle: <br /> <ol> <li>Turn off the Computer. (laptop or desktop)</li> <li>Turn off the Router (if you have any). Unplug it off the power supply.</li> <li>Turn off the Modem and make sure to unplug it off the power supply.</li></ol> <br /> Leave the devices off for at least a minute. Then turn them back on sequentially. <br /> <ol> <li>Turn the Modem back on. The modem will do a self test to check if all connections are working. Leave it for at least a minute to initialize.</li> <li>Turn the Router back on. Let it initialize properly and wait at least a minute before going to the next step.</li> <li>Turn the Computer back on. Allow it to fully load all the startup programs and services.</li></ol> <br /> After doing the above steps. Check if you can browse the Internet using your preferred browser. Hope this helps.

Ive had this modem for a while now. all of the sudden some lights start blinking and sometimes they dont blink at all and thats when i lose connectivity to my internet. ive try resetting it back to default...


Sounds like the signal level drops too much.
Connect the modem in the first cable from outside (without splitters).
Check the fitting (must be clean and shine, the copper wire).

You could have too much drops with your cable installation. You need to put an amplifier.
Or try to eliminate some splitters and renew the fittings.

Good luck.

Rate my possible solutions. Thanks.

How do you set the router up!!! no diagram to hook up to desktop


How you connect it depends on how you plan to use it. Let me explain:

Some people have a dsl line (high speed internet connection) and their modem from their internet provider only has room for one computer cable to connect and use the internet. If the customer has more then one desktop computer they want to connect to the internet, they will need to buy a router. A router provides multiple ports for several computers to connect to the internet at the same time.

If you have a dsl modem already and bought a router to add additional computers to your network - then follow the instructions below to set it up:

Connect your phone cord from the wall into the dsl modem. Plug in the power cable from the dsl modem to the wall and turn it on. Connect an ethernet cable to the dsl modem (ethernet cables are the ones that look like a regular telephone cord but the ends are a little larger) and connect the other end to your router. Make sure you plug this cable into the port marked "ethernet" on your router. There is only one port for your internet connection line coming into the router, the rest of the ports are for adding computers only. Some routers say the word "ethernet" near the port for the internet connection. Others have a picture near or or brackets around it to show that it is different then the others. Plug in the power cord to your router and turn it on. Make sure you turn on your modem first and let it warm up before connecting your router. Modem power on first, then router power on - always.

Now connect an ethernet cable to your router and connect the other end to the pc you wish to use on the internet. Do not turn on your pc until the ethernet cord is attached. Your dsl modem has to be powered up first, followed by your router and then your pc. All in that order.

Your computer should automatically sense the internet connection upon start up. You can verify that your connection is installed correctly and that your pc is sensing it by looking at the bottom right side of your screen near the clock area. You should see a picture of a computer monitor that represents your internet connection status. Sometimes they glow green when they are healthy. Sometimes they show a red X on top of them if they are disconnected from the internet. If you can't find the Icon for your internet connection on the bottom right side of your screen, unplug the ethernet cable from the back of your pc - while watching the bottom right side area and plug it back in again. Watch for a change to locate the icon. Sometimes there is a downward pointing arrow near the clock which needs to be clicked on to open up the area and view the icons.

Thats all! One line from the modem to the router - another line from the router to the pc - and the internet should be up and running fine.

If you bought a router combination modem - then its the same as above - just without a separate dsl modem. (i.e. Connect the power cable from the router/modem to the wall. Connect the ethernet cable to the port marked "ethernet" for your internet connecton and connect the other end of the cord to your pc. Then turn your pc on. Router/modem power on first and pc power on second in that order)

All the lights on your modem should be green and steady - except for the one marked internet or connection which is usually flashing and moving. If you have any red or yellow lights then you need to troubleshoot and correct the problem before your internet connection will work.

I have a ZyXEL P-660R-D1 router connected to my Linksys Wireless-G 2.4 GHz Broadband router and I'm having a few problems. First, the internet light on my ZyXEL won't light up EVER. I am not sure if that...


First of, unplug your Linksys and go right into your ZyXEL, (you might need to run a cable) Run that way for a while, If your not cut off then it's your router. Do this first and we can go from there.

Loss of internet connection


Please google "network magic" from cisco. Get it ... free for a limited time then they want $ or ... keep using the limited version for free.

I use the paid pro version to manage my network and I love it.

The program is easy to use and will perform all the functions you will need to stay on the WWW. Did I mention it is SIMPLE to use yet it is complete and comprehensive. It will help with wireless security too, if that is an issue.

Might want to try a new ethernet cable going from your modem to your computer- If that does not fix your problem then I would try connecting through USB.

The network is working but I can't get the internet


If the internet is not working first thing to check here is the internet connection from your modem without the router, make sure that your computer can access the internet when computer is connected directly to modem, if no internet without the router you need to contact your ISP for that, but if there's internet without the router you need to reset and reconfigure the router.....if you have the setup CD of the router just run that to reconfigure it back.........

Loss of internet connection


Sounds like a switch before the signal gets to your house. Modems usually don't go out intermittently unless they are overheating. Is the modem in a ventilated area where it can get some air? An alternate is to borrow a modem from a friend to test it. Usually one of your niehbors will have the same service and the same modem. I had my surfboard (from comcast) for 5 years and it was solid as a rock, the spotty services was always at the Comcast switches (at the street or the nearest hub.

Hope this helps
