Question about Linksys Wireless-N WRT150N Router

2 Answers

After upgrading to DSL, router does not work

After I finally got DSL, my router won't allow me to connect to the internet. I can see all the lights on and my laptop shows that the wireless connection is good. But, neither it nor my desktop (that is hooked directly to the DSL and router) will access the internet.
Any help, suggestions would be appreciated!

Change the ip address of the router to 192.168.2.1. It will conflict with your dsl modem if it is set to 1.1.

Thanks and please take a moment to rate as fixya. Thank you.

    If you want to change the lan ip of the router you dont need any internet connection, you just need to connect a pc directly to the router and access the router setup page and there you can change the lan ip of the router..



    Hope that helps.......

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?

Share Your Internet Connection with More Than One Computer- The Easy Way


Here is a simple way share your home internet connection with more than one computer. This will work for both wired and wireless and doesn't require alot of technical or computer skills to accomplish. I'm sure there are other ways, but if you're looking for a simple repeatable setup, here it is.

If you've got a dsl connection through a dsl modem, this TIP will work for you.
If you've got a cable modem, this TIP will work just as well.

Here's a list of what you'll need.

  1. Dsl or cable modem that works on your system and you can access internet with one computer (If you're using the internet, most likely you've got this already).
  2. Wired (Ethernet) or Wireless Router (wifi routers have 4-6 ethernet ports also).
  3. For Wired: Ethernet cable to connect modem to router.
  4. For Wireless: Wifi compatible computer or wifi card for your computer (follow manufacturer's instructions for proper install).
Procedure:
  1. Turn all components off. This includes anything on your existing network- computer, modem, printer and any router you may currently be using.
  2. With all power off, connect an ethernet cable between your modem and your new cable/dsl router(wired or wireless).
  3. Turn on the power to your new router only and let it boot up completely.
  4. Turn on the dsl/cable modem and allow it to boot. Since the router was booted first, the modem with recognize the router's MAC address (ethernet numerical address) and connect that address to the internet.
  5. Connect all the other components onto the router with the ethernet cables as needed and turn on the components- no particular order is necessary after the router and modem are booted. Your router will assign MAC addresses to all the ethernet components. Once the MAC address is assigned, your computer should work correctly with the internet and shouldn't drop out when the second computer is turned on.
  6. For wireless connections, boot up your computer with the properly installed Wifi card, airport card and allow it to "find" your router. Once you get confirmation of the signal, you're good to go.
Following this procedure will allow your modem, your router to use their designed software to connect you without a bunch of programming. You will actually enjoy having more than one computer sharing an internet connection.

Remember this procedure and follow the steps again if you lose power and have to reboot your network.

I have Belkin N150 Rouer. My internet is Time warner. It has no connection between the modern and Belkin router. How can I set up Belkin N150 Router to solve this problem?


f the modem light keeps blinking, it means that the router hasn't been configured yet. Also, rarely, it can be an issue with WAN port/modem port on the router or the ethernet cable connecting the modem to router or finally, modem may not be working as its not applicable in this case(as you said).

1.Connect comp.--(gray port) router (yellow port)--modem
2.On the computer, open the router page by typing 192.168.2.1 in the address bar of browser

NOTE : IF YOUR INTERNET SERVICE PROVIDER IS CABLE FOLLOW THE BELOW STEPS

3.Under Internet WAN , SELECT the connection type as Dynamic.->NEXT
4.On the far left column, click on "MAC address" under Internet WAN.
5.Click on clone and apply changes and finally check Internet status
6.If internet status > Not connected, we need to do a network power cycle
7.For this, unplug the power from router, then from modem, then unplug the coaxial cable from cable modem.
8. Wait for 60 sec, then connect the coaxial cable, then connect power to modem, wait for lights on modem to get steady, then finally, plug in the power to router.
Now, you may see proper lights lit on the router.
All my best wishes for a fast internet service through the router.

FOR PPPOE OR DSL CONNECTIONS
1.Under Internet WAN , SELECT the connection type as PPPOE ->NEXT
2.ENTER THE USERNAME & PASSWORD PROVIDED BY YOUR IN INTERNET SERVICE PROVIDER
3.CLICK ON APPLY CHANGES

Computer wont connect to internet with router


Troubleshooting steps:
1) Make sure that you can get it to work if you go from the cable/DSL modem directly to your computer
2) Assuming that works, disconnect the cable from the back of the computer and plug it into the WAN/INTERNET connection on the router and take a different cable and go from one of the LAN ports (labelled 1-4, typically) to the computer
3) turn off the computer, unplug the router and unplug the cable/DSL modem. Plug in the cable/DSL modem and wait for the lights to stabilize. Plug in the router and wait for the lights to stabilize. Finally, turn on the computer and try it.

IChat: No response with Audio/Video after modem/router changes


The local Apple Genius Bench was nice to reload iChat and OS for us. But he could not get iChat going for me and my relative. It looks like iChat will have trouble between DSL and Cable but DSL to DSL and Cable to Cable each case is fine. Anyway, after connecting to Apple iChat Test Site
Appleu3test04, my MacBook started to work better with iChat as my relative is able to see and hear us although on my end the incoming picture is not too clear. Then finally Upgrade of New OS seems to make the picture sharper. Thinking back, the original problem came from Modem upgrade to higher speed but I did not use the new DSL telephone filters. Please post this up to help other frustrated iChat users. Anyway, we still like Apple! By Jim on 05/30/2009

Internet cutting on and off


If you haven't done a firmware upgrade I think doing so will be of a benefit to your problem! Just remember to backup your router settings beforehand! Hope this helps!

WAN


The wan port is what you hook your modem to. Wan stands for Wide Area Network, which in your case is the internet. Your house with your 2 pc's and networking equipment would be considered a Lan, local area network.

The 4 ports on the router are switch ports, when you hook the modem up to the switch instead of the wan port the modem will only allow traffic from one physical, (MAC) address to pass through, this is why only one of your pc's can access the internet. The wan port on the router has its own MAC address, so the modem will associate with the wan port and trust all traffic that comes from that port.

Finally, after you have connected the modem to the wan port, pull the power cord on the modem then plug it back in to reset it, this will force the modem to orient with the wan port.

Lost internet connection


Change the calbe from the router to the dsl modem. Make sure you check labels on the rear of these devices to make sure the connections go where indicated. Is there and ethernet light on your modem. If that is on then the connection is made. Also check if the DSL modem works directly connected to the pc.
