Hi, morning/afternoon. This may not be a problem with your router. I'll explain.

Refresher: computer > router > internet. Your computer can be connected to your router and yet not connected to the internet. Suggest that you do the following in this order: (although to post your issue, you must have been connected to the internet.. hence no problem, right?)
1) Power off your laptop/desktop
2) Power off your router
3) Power off your internet connection (cable modem or dsl)
leave off for 30 seconds

Now:
Power on your cable modem (if you have one) or dsl connection
Power on your router
Power on your laptop/desktop

That should get you going Your note: connected to my router (means you are connected to the local router) but not getting web pages could be your ISP. Also, check your cable connections. If this happened "suddenly" respectfully, have you paid your internet bill? Because you can be connected to a router, but blocked from the internet. Hope that helps. dw

Belkin N300 Surf problems


The router has to be manually configured in the gui page within it to allow remote wireless access point. This is not done by default as a security feture on routers. The way to find out the ip address of the router to set up a wireless access point or remote configuration is to go on your machine that has active working internet and click start, all programs, accessories, right click comand prompt, select run as administrator, confirm, then once in comand prompt admin, typ in ipconfig /all, then look for default gateway in the first list shown this is the ip of your router. Hope this helps.

Purchased new linksys wireless N router. letss me connect to wireless but can't surf web or connect to web . lIKSYS SAYS TO BUT AN usb connector that will talk to router???? Has to be better fix


Have you done any configuration on it ? Or did u just plug it in and connect to it ?

You may need to log into the router to configure certain settings it needs to connect to the internet (the settings to connect to your Internet Service Provider) ie: PPPoE

Assuming your on a Windows PC -

Open a Command prompt
Type IPCONFIG

Notice the Default Gateway IP Address.....likely close to 192.168.1.1

Type whatever shows as the default gateway into your web-browser and it should bring you to a configuration page.

My laptop is not connecting to the internet, its all connected to the wireless but when m trying to connect to the internet, its saying "the page cannot be found"


A 'page not found' error usually means that you are connected to the internet but the address of the page you want cannot be determined. Try connecting the laptop directly to the router with an ethernet cable and see what web pages work correclty. Then try wirelessly but do not go too far from the router.

Im having trouble hooking up my wireless connection.


1. Open a web browser on the computer.

2. In the address bar of the web browser, type http://192.168.2.1.

3. Click Login in the upper right-hand corner of the page. The router does not ship with a password, so just click Submit.

4. Click on "Connection Type" under Internet WAN

5. Choose the appropriate connection as provided by your Internet Service Provider (ISP) and press "Next"

6. You will need to enter the settings as provided by your ISP. If you have options such as Encapsulation and MTU, then these should be set to VCMUX and 1454.

7. Once all of the appropriate settings have been entered, you may click on "Apply Changes". Your Modem Router will now save this data and attempt to connect to the Internet.
Your Modem Router should now show you that the "Internet Status" is "Connected" in the top right-hand corner of the interface. On some Modem Routers you may need to select the "Connect" button found on the "Home" page.

If you need more help come back.Post / thumbs / testimonial are welcome!
