Unplug the roadrunner cable modem completely as well as the Linksys. Let them sit for 20 minuets or so and then plug in the roadrunner modem first. Let it power up completely and then connect the linksys via the internet or wan port.

Check for connectivity.

If no internet connection enter the linksys control web page usually at 192.168.1.1 and perform a ip address release/renew on the status page.

If you do not know your admin login for linksys the default is admin with a password of admin. If you are unable to access the router then perform a factory reset on the router.

Make sure the router is powered ON. Then Press+Hold the Reset button of your router for 30secs first. (Reset is found on the back panel of your router, you have to use a pen or a paper clip to press the button) For the LED's if the power blinking that indicates that the router is being reset and then power-cycle the router for only 30secs.

If the Power LED won't blink Press+Hold the Reset Button for 1min and then Power-cycle the router for another 1min. Then check the IP address of your PC then try accessing your router's GUI admin console using a web browser with the address of 192.168.1.1 and use admin as your password.

1- in order of what connects to what
1- linksys connects to road runner modem. Should be a network connection on the back of the router that says uplink. This connects to the road runner`s wired port on the back of the unit.
Vonage phone will/should connect through the wireless section an in your personal wifi connection when you get the router wireless setup. Name your wireless something that other people are not using and then tell vonage phone to connect to that network.
Hope this helps

Need help, router will not connect. The internet service road runner is working when I plug directly in computer but through the router it won't activate. This router has been working for over a year now...


Try unplugging the power from Road Runner modem and disconnect the computer or router. Then only plug in the power to the router and plug in the power to the modem.

If this does not work, try resetting the modem's config to factory defaults by sticking a paperclip end into the reset button hole in the back while powering it up. hold the buttin in for atleast 15 seconds while the router restarts. then retry the first suggestion.

My linksys wrt120n will not reconize the road runner modem when the ethernet cable is hooked up to it


This router has lot of issues with the firmware. Firmware is the software of the router. First thing you need to do is upgrade the firmware of the router.
If you connect your computer directly to the modem it will go online. Download the firmware of the router from the web site www.linksys.com/download .

Now connect the computer and the modem to the router. open the router set up page. upgrade the firmware. After upgrading the firmware, reset the router for 30 seconds . Unplug the power and plug it back in. wait for 1 minute and reconfigure the router.

You have to configure your laptop the router. For that First down load the CD which came with the linksys router to your laptop. It carries all the instructions how to set up the internet connection. After downloading, Connect your laptop to router with Ethernet cable. Normally the linksys link should come up automatically. If it doesn't open the linksys link by clicking on the icon on the desktop.it will give you step by step instructions on how to configure your laptop to the wireless router. You should not have any problems as it is simple

Linksysy asks for a network key (Wep key or WPA key)


1. Using a computer that is wired to the router, access the router's setup page by typing 192.168.1.1 on the address field of your browser.
2. By default there is no username and password is admin.
3. Once you're in the setup page, click wireless then there is a sub tab there called wireless security.
4. You will find there the wireless key that is enabled in your router.

Use of router in network


Try reset the router & cable modem. There ia a reset (very small) button on the back of the wireless router & the modem. Disconnect the power cords to both. Use a pen & hold in for 10 seconds (router & modem). Re-connect power (router & modem) & restart PC. If your service still has not returned. Chances are it's your internet provider & not you. Double check by connecting your modem directly to your PC.

Luck!

Not working on my 2nd computer


I am going to assume Vista is the first OS and both machines are windows computers and you are accessing the cable service through a DI-524 wireless router. There are many issues that can relate to your problem. First does your cable provider require you to logon to access the internet. If so, try using each computer individually (with the other one logged off and shutdown) with the existing wireless connection. If this works both machines are configured correctly for the router and the issue appears to be dealing with the logon possibly having it performed by the router if possible. Second if that does not work -- on each machine bring up a command prompt window (Start > All Programs > Accessories > Command Prompt) and type ipconfig and press enter. There may be multiple local area connections but look for one with a 192.168.?.? address on each machine. The first question mark should be the same on both machines and the second different. If this works both machines have connected to the router and we are seeking another issue. If this is not true one machine has a configuration problem and cannot access the wireless router (probably the Windows ZP computer from you description). We will need to diagnose further once you answer the above questions.
