DSL uses a ppoe account. Your DSL provider should have given you a router/dsl modem to connect to the internet, and then you can use another router to feed the house a wireless connection. The ppoe user name and password should be set up on one of these devices. If you don't know what your user name and password is, (I forgot mine a long time ago), you can contact your provider and have your password reset. Once this is done, you will either have to connect via wire to the device that should have your user name and password, and set it. Default IP address to get into this router is 192.168.1.1, type that into your address bar on your browser.

default user name and password are both admin, all lower case for both.

Once you get into the device then you can go into the setting and look for connection settings.

Here is the PDF for this router. Start looking at page 5 to learn how to set up a ppoe user and password.

I lost my netgear installatio cd, what do i do to install it?


You dont need that CD, in fact I recommend NOT using it.
1. Power off your cable or dsl modem for about 30 minutes 2. Also power of the router 2. Connect a cable from the modem to the Internet port on the Linksys router 3. Connect your PC to the router. 4. Power ONLY the dsl or cable modem on NOT the router. 5. After about 1 minute power on the router.
Should work now.

Re-installing my linksys


Before you can use your linksys router again, you must configure first your AT&T modem under bridge mode. If the AT&T modem is already set to you may connect the devices (modem router and PC) must be switched OFF first.
after the devices had been connected,...
1) turn ON the AT&T modem first, wait for the DSL light to stay solid
2) turn ON linksys router,wait for the lights to stay solid
3) turn ON computer,wait for your desktop screen
4) try to access Internet Explorer

After successful instn of my linksys wireless router i cannot access to wireless online connection


Whenever you connect a different device to the cable/DSL modem the modem itself must be reset. Dont even waste a phone call to linksys. Its useless.

If you are using DSL depending on your ISP you may have to enter your account info into the router's PPoE section

Cable users should have the router set to "Obtain IP aadress automatically"

Use the reset button on the back of the router and start from scratch.
Unplug the cable/DSL modem power
Hook up your router WAN/Internet to the Cable/DSL modem Ethernet/LAN jack
Power on the Cable/DSL Modem first, wait about a minute, then power on the router.

Linksys router


unplug your DSL modem. Wait 30 seconds and plug it back in.

Make sure the router is connected to a DSL modem. Lately I have seen DSL modems connected to offices that are really routers. If thats the case it may not be talking because the DSL is address the gateway with the same address as the router.

The best way to test this is to see what happens when you disconnect your linksys router and type in http://192.168.0.1
in internet explorer.

If the DSL modem screen appears, it's configured as a router.

Then you will have to take the linksys router and turn it into a switch with a wireless access point. I
