SOURCE: setting up linksys wireless router with motorola 2210 dsl modem

Hello,

First set up WAN side access to the internet. For this you need information about your internet service provider. Please respond with your internet service provider's name or better yet a link to their help/support website.

I assume you already have access to configure the router at 192.168.1.1 if not please do the following. Open Internet explorer and enter 192.168.1.1 where you would enter fixya.com and press enter -- do web pages appear in your screen from the wired computer. If so we have manual access to configure the router...

hope this helps you..

Thank you!!...

Access linksys wireless-g wrt54g with Nook tablet


Change the wireless network name and then change the key.
Try to connect to the new wireless network and see if that works.
If not then you can try to upgrade the firmware of your Linksys router.
After upgrading the firmware, reset the router and reconfigure it.

Hi Support team, I use Modem Motorola SB100 with Linksys WAP54G, and DLink Wireless G DWA USB Adapter to connect to Linksys WAP from my PCDesktop. Connection from the PC to Linksys is ok but can't...


peter_picasa:

You cannot use a Wireless Access Point (WAP) to connect directly to your IPS's modem. A WAP does not provide the ability to share a single IP address on the internet like a router does.

Either return the WAP for a refund and buy a wireless router or buy an Ethernet wired-only router and plug the WAP into the LAN side of that router. You would then plug the WAN side of the Ethernet wired router into your modem.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Hi, I'm an idiot! PLEASE HELP


you may be suffering from mixed Cat 5 and Cat 6 cabling.
The wiring is slightly different and they don't work well when mixed in routers and modems etc. One or the other will work , but when they're mixed it'll do what you have going on here...

I would recommend wiring everything with cat 6 ethernet cabling. Look on your cable and you will find the labeling on the outer casing.

Solution


Here's a user guide http://broadband.motorola.com/noflash/customer_docs/user_guides/510984-001.pdf

but basically all you do is

  • screw the coax (tv cable) to the rear of the Motorola modem
  • connect the power to the modem and wall outlet
  • plug an ethernet cable into the rear of the modem (looks like a very wide telephone jack)
  • plug the other end into the WAN or Internet port of the Linksys router
  • plug the power into the router and wall
  • if wired, plug another ethernet chord into a LAN port on the router (probably numbered 1,2,3,4) and then plug the other end into your PC/Laptop
  • if wireless, an usecured network should now show up when you search for a wireless network (named LINKSYS or something)
if all is well and DHCP is enabled by default you should be online.

How do I remove linksys broadband WRT54GS Wireless-G router from my pc. and revert to just my Motorola, SB5101 surfboard cable modem. Tried simply removing the router and pluging the modem back in, but no...


Hi intriguedkiw;

Yes this is fairly simple. Open up your network connections and delete the icon for the local area connection to the Linksys router, and click on Add new connection to create a new connection to the Cable modem. The add wizard will walk you through connecting to the modem, just fill out the questions correctly, and you should be good to go.

Good Luck,

Mark

Setting Up a Wireless Network


You can still use your existing Linksys router with your cable modem. In fact the router your have is designed to work with DSL/Cable Broadband connections.

1. Make sure to properly connec the devices in your network. Modem will be connected to the Internet port of the router. Then, laptop will be connected to one of the 4 Ethernet ports of the router. For initial setup of your router with modem, you need to hardwire laptop to the router.
2. Press and hold reset at the back of the router for about 15 seconds.
3. After 15 seconds turn off the router and then turn off the modem. Wait for a minute.
4. Power on modem and wait for the lights to be ready.
5. When modem lights are on, turn on router.
6. There should be 4 lights on. Power should be steady green. Internet, WLAN and Ethernet port.
7. Checked if you have Internet connectivity on your laptop while it is wired to the router.
8. If Internet is working, disconnect laptop from wired connection to the router and check available wireless network that laptop can detect.
9. The default wireless network name that the Linksys router broadcasts is "linksys". Connect to it which is an unsecured wireless network.
10. Once you are successfully connected, check Internet.

Hope this helps!
