I have a Linksys 5-port switch connected to a cox cable modem and I'm trying to use it to connect two computers at the same time. Only one works at a time and I have to reset the switch and modem to get...


Because the cox cable modem will only bind to one mac address (computer). You need to purchase a router, any router linksys, dlink, will do, get a wireless one so you can setup wifi as well. Plug your cox cable modem into the wan port on the router, plug your pc into one of the ethernet switch ports, you can use your web browser IE to login to the router and secure your wifi signal, power cycle your modem to make it bind to the new router. Most linksys dlink are programmed for a class c network, you could in theory put 254 devices, computers on your connection now.

Slow dsl


The cable modem should be connected to the WAN port of the router. Then the computers should be connected to any ports from 1-4 at the back of the router.

Once they are connected properly. Reset the router. Just hold the reset button for 10 seconds. Then turn off the modem, router and all computers.

Then you need to turn on the modem first, wait for the lights to become solid green, then turn on the router. Once the WAN light on the router is on, turn on the computers and check if there is internet connection.

If still no internet connection, contact your ISP. They might need to clone the mac address of router to their end.

Hope this helps! Good luck!

How to configure Linksys WRT54G router with BSNL's C2110 modem?


The Linksys WRT54G broadband router is one of the most popular consumer routers there are. Linksys makes configuring your router easy. This article will walk you through the initial setup options for this particular model, but many of the basics we talk about here can be applied to any router setup. Setting up the router consists of four basic steps, such as Testing your Internet connection, connecting your hardware, setting up the connection and power cycling the entire network. Aside, from setup, we'll also describe some security concerns so you can make an educated decision on the administration of your home network.
Test Your Internet Connection First While this seems like something you would not need to be, make sure your Internet connection actually works. If you haven't already, plug the cable modem directly into the back of the computer and make sure you can get onto the internet. You may need to reboot the machine first.
Connect The Modem and Router to the PC Now that we have confirmed the Internet connection works, the next step is to connect the modem to the router and the router to the PC. The modem will attach to the router's Internet Port. You will then attach the router to the PC via any of the four Ethernet ports in the rear. Check the LED lights in the front of the router to confirm all of the connections are properly made. The Power, WLAN, Ethernet Port to PC and the Internet should all be lit.
Configure The Linksys WRT54G Settings With all connection made, you will now need to login to the router via your web browser. Type 192.168.1.1 and hit enter. You should see the login screen. Leave the username blank and type admin as the password and hit enter.
You will now need to configure the router's connection to the Internet. Under the Setup / Basic Setup section, make sure the router is setup to Automatic Configuration - DHCP. This allows the router to receive an IP address from your Internet Service Provider.
Next, go to the MAC Address Clone tab in the same area and enable Mac Address Cloning. This allows the router to clone your PCs MAC address, as the ISP may require this.
Power Cycle the Router and Modem Now that everything is configured, you'll want to power cycle everything. This is done to make sure everything has an IP address from the modem all the way through to the PC. To power cycle, shutdown everything. Unplug the modem and router power source. Shutdown the computer. Plug in the modem and wait for all green lights. Next, plug in the router and wait a few minutes until its lights are also green. Lastly, boot up the PC. You should have an Internet connection.
Change the Linksys WRT54G Router Password You noticed when setting up the router, that there was a default username of nothing and a password of "admin." Be sure to log back into the router once everything is running properly and type in a username and change the password. If you don't, a hacker that sees you have a WRT54G router could login to the router with the default credentials.

Internet wont work thru my Linksys BEFSR41 Cable/DSL Router W/4 Port Switch.....can i fix it or do i need a new one?


hi there, you need to configure the router first to connect over the internet.

checked if everything is properly connected, modem-router to the computer, checked the lights on the router and the modem as well if it is properly lit up.

if your ISP(Internet Provider) is cable then you need to clone the mac address of the computer, if you are running DSL, you need to input the username and password of your account from your ISP.

Accessing the router setup screen, open IE and type on the address bar 192.168.1.1 then nothing for username and password is admin.

on the setup screen you will see there Internet connection type, by default it is automatic configuration if you have cable connection as your Internet then leave it that way and look for mac address clone sub tab.

if you are running dsl for the Internet connection type you need to put PPPoE and input there your username and password from your ISP. then in everything you do you need to save the settings there.

tell me if it

I have Time Warner Cable for internet and Vontage cable for my phone thru my internet. I'm trying to connect a Linksys router for my wireless laptop. I also have a Netgear switch connected to Time Warner...


If you purchased a Linksys wireless roter then you shoul not need the switch anymore-
Try going directly from your time warner modem into the Interner/WAN port on the router and then plug your desktop computer and the vontage phone system into 2 of the ports on the router. After everything is hooked up you will probably need to power cycle for it all to work correctly.
Please power cycle in this order:

Reboot modem - then Router- then Vontage phone system.

Hope this helps

Connect Linksys 8-Port Switch to two PC's, a modem and printer


What's the model number of it? Is it a router/switch? Or just a switch?

The modem would go into a WLAN port. Everything else would go into the numbered ports.

If you pass me the model number then I can provide more information.

You'll want to connect one computer or laptop to it first before setting it up so you can configure the correct settings. You'll need the admin password. If it's just a switch, then you can just plug in; however, I strongly advise putting a router in between a modem and switch. You want to have a firewall in place.

WRT54G Router Hookup


All you need to do is connect the modem to the router. From the router, you will want a computer connected to it so you can configure your wireless network.
