Cannot get router to work on PC hard cabled to router

System has worked fine for about 4 months. Added a new computer and since then, the PC that is hard wired will not access router. Both of our other computers work fine. Tried to reload software, no go. Uninstalled software and tried to reinstall, startup simply says unable to find internet but I can see the router working.

    Is the new computer the one hard wired to the router.

1 Answer

No. We have two PC's and one lap top in the network and the two PC's have been on the system for the whole time. the laptop was new. Last night I worked with "smilemaker" and before all was said and done, I now have no internet service at my house.
When I try to load the software for the router, it says that it can't find the internet but eventually get to the screen when it ways that it is configuring the computer but never goes beyond that point. I have tried uninstalling the software, unplugging the router from power and the PC, then starting all over again and still have the same result.

Router problems


I've seen many routers die this way. Belkin routers have a tendency to go intermitant before they die. If your computer can get onto the net when connected to just your modem, then the router is the answer.

Good Luck

i have read the same problem on the supportrix forum and you may try this and see if this help solve your problem. make sure your computer is directly connected to the router

Step 1: Shutdown the computer.
Step 2: reset the router while power on then Unplug the router’s power cable.
Step 3: Unplug the Broadband modem’s power cable and wait for 30 seconds.
Step 4: Plug in the Broadband modem’s power cable and wait for its lights to appear stable.
Step 5: Plug in the router's power cable once the modem’s lights appear stable.
Step 6: Power on the computer on and configure the router settings
Step 7: test the Internet connection.

if this still didnot work, upgrade the firmware of your router and repeat the same steps.

note:
configuring the router settings will depends who is your provider. if your isp is dsl you need to configure your ISP username (email address format) and password on the router. if your router is a cable no need to change any settings on the router. it should automatically work

if you are still having trouble configuring your device, try to call supportrix

NIC blinks on then off for longer run lines


You need to update the firmware of the router then hard reset it.

Download the router's firmware at www.linksys.com/download

After updating the firmware, you need to hard reset the router.

Press the reset button at the back of the router for 30 seconds then unplug the power for 30 secs then plug it back in. That should fix it.

ADSL Dropping on DSL-G604T


You can try something to narrow down where the problem is. Plug your pc directly into your modem and unplug your router altogether. This will not allow you to use you other computers on the internet. Don't worry you only have to do this for 4 or 5 hours. If the pc remains on net and you have no glitches then you might want to think about getting a new router. Since the router worked fine for 8 months, I wouldn't think the settings got changed. Routers aren't perfect pieces of equipment, I have had to purchase 3 in 4 years.

Belkin Router - Network works for 5 minutes than everything loses internet capability.


hi,

           This issue usally occurs when the router is able to save the data stored or in  other words the Router id not able to AUTHENTICATE,  but as you already got a new router and you have already done the fireware upgradation of the router. we can also upgrade the firmware of your speedstream modem.

 

plz do these following steps ,( plz disconect the router from the computer and modem completly while doing the steps )

 

 

 

The Efficient 5260 modems that can be upgraded are as follows:

Look on the label on the bottom of your modem. It should read:

SpeedStream 5260 Ethernet ADSL Modem
Part Number: 060-5660-00x (where x=any number)
Revision: any (all revisions seem to work)

If your part number reads anything else, your modem is most likely not upgradable.

For those curious, 5660 models 003 and earlier do NOT support G.Lite ADSL, only DMT. If you are buying a 5260 or 5660 model secondhand, and your DSL ISP uses G.Lite DSL, it would be a good idea to check with the person selling you the DSL modem.

UPDATE: As of 5660 Firmware v2.3.0(2) and later all 5660 including 5260/5660 hybrids support G.Lite ADSL. It pays to use the latest Firmware.

 

 

 

PLZ REPLY IF THIS HELPS, I WILL TRY TO FIND OUT THE RESOLUTION FOR THIS ISSUE

 

REGARDS.
