Just bought PB Ixtreme x5620. i am trying to connect my virgin broadband to the pc. i have netgear router which has the yellow cable in the moden and router and the blue cable in the PC and router. i can...


Hi,

Can you supply more detail of your network setup? You have a broadband modem, a seperate router and the PC.

For this setup cabling should be ....

1. Phone Socket (Pref. Master socket) to ADSL socket on modem

2. Modem LAN socket to Router WAN socket

3. Router LAN socket to PC Ethernet socket

Usually in this configuration you will have to switch off DHCP on either the modem or the router as they may both be trying to supply IP addresses to your PC. I would suggest disabling DHCP on the router and leaving the ADSL modem to supply IP addresses. If you do this you will have to setup the Router with a valid fixed IP.

Have fun!

Cheers,
Ripface.

I lost the instructions on how to install a Linksys wireless router. I would like to down load these instructions.


cable setup

This guide is recommended for Cable Internet Service in the USA like Charter, Cox, Comcast, Cable Vision, etc.
  1. First you need to connect the device together. You need to connect your cable modem to the internet port on the back of the router, and the computer should go to one of the 4-port on the router labeled Ethernet (1, 2, 3, 4).
  2. Then turn on the modem first, wait for the lights to stabilize before powering on the Linksys router. Lights that you should have on the router are Power (solid green), Wireless/WLAN (Green sometimes flashing), One of the no. lights where the computer is plugged in (flashing), And the internet light (flashing).
After doing this step there are times that this will already get you online. If the internet will not work, you continue following the steps 3.

3. If the internet is still not working; we will need to adjust a setting on the router setup page. To access the setup page of the router you need to open your internet explorer or Firefox on the computer that is hardwired directly to the router. In the address bar of your browser (Internet Explorer or Firefox) type http://192.168.1.1/ and hit enter or click Go. It will ask you for a username and password. Just type "admin" for the password field and there is no username. If you have ran the setup CD prior to this, then use the password that you have set when were running the setup CD.
4. Once you are in the setup page of your router make sure that the Internet Connection Type is set to Automatic Configuration DHCP, then click the save the settings button at the bottom of the page. After saving the settings, click the sub tab at the very top of the page that says MAC Address Clone. Set it to enable and click the button that will say Clone or Clone your PC's MAC and save the settings again.

5. After doing step 4, do a power cycle. Power cycle is done by turning of the router, modem and computer. Leave them off for a minute, tuned them back on in this order. Modem first wait for the lights to stabilize, then the router wait until the power light become solid. Then turn on the computer. This will get you online through the router.

First thing to do is plug in your router. Next, remove the cable from your modem, and plug it into the respective port on your router (will say "DSL" either above or below it). Next, connect an ethernet cable from the computer, to the router. Finally, log into your router via the web interface (usually 192.168.1.1)

Do you know how to access your router's setup page? If yes then setup the MTU on your router, for DSL use 1492, for Cable use 1500/1400/1300 (try which one will be best for you). If this may not work you may want to directly connect your computer to the modem and test if the connection there is stable.

If you do not know how to access the router's setup page, please provide me this information,what is the model number of the router and the operating system of your computer. Is your computer wired or wireless? is there a wired computer?
