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!!...

The wireless connection is not working. The only network that shows up is lynksis wich has a waek connection and asks for a password that i have neever had to use before, so i dont know what the password...


Unfortunately the Motorola SB5100 SURFboard is not a wireless device. The Linksys you are trying to connect to is most likely someone in your area and they have it password protected, which is why it is asking for a password.

In order to setup Wireless you will need to invest in a Linksys, Netgear, D-Link, or some other Wireless Router. They can be found at any computer store.

Once you have the wireless router you can connect an Ethernet cable from the Motorola SB5100 SURFboard to the Wireless Router. From there follow the instructions for the Wireless Router you purchased to set it up and secure it.

If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response.

Thank You,
Brandon

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.

all you need to do is to connect the ethernet cable to the internet port on the back of the linksys router and then plug the routers power cord into the wall and you should be ready to go.

MY LINKSYS WRT54G WONT READ MY COMPUTERS INTERNET CONNECTION


Ok to start the yellow ethernet port should be connected straight to the Linksys router in the ethernet in port. Then you connect the cmputer to one of the other the 4 ports on the back of the wireless router. wala you shouldn't have any more trouble after that.

Get no connection useing 6100 modem connected to wireless B router


Hi starman re westell 6100.

Hi i hope you have find solution with your issue ifnot let me walk you through on how to get it up and working.

First , you need to connect your modem directly to your computer. We need to access its Graphic Unit Interface by opening your browser and type onyour address bar its default gateway.

The def. gateway can be 192.168.1.1 or depending what ISP youre connected to . For ATT broadband its 192.168.1.254 / verizon broadband is 192.168.1.1..  { onyour address bar : type in 192.168.1.1 and hit Enter.

to check def gateway : you can go to start > run > cmd then enter > on DOS command type in ipconfig /all  then HIT enter > itl provide you your network list > your default gateway is your westell modem or if your linksys is connected than it should be you linksys.

Itl route you to your westell page. Try to go to  Broadband and choose connection or configure connection.button. Look for configure and by default you will see its in PPPoE> change it to bridged ethernet and save.

By enabling bridge to your modem w/c is westell youl have a chance to configure you linksys to PPPoE. 

Connect you westell to your linksys and on your computer try to check your default gateway as seen above. By default linksys can be access by typing in 192.168.2.1 or 192.168.1.1. Itl prompt you for UN and PW: by default your Username is : Blank and Password should be admin. { blank = dont type anything}

On your linksys SETUP page > by default it is set to DHCP or obtain IP address automatically. Pls change it to PPPoE and type in your UN and PW : username@isp { your ISP name}. and hit save settings or save.


Restart your linksys and try to browse to check fore connection.

========================
For all types of modem such as westell : you need to set it to bridge mode first foryou wireless router to work ie linksys. Set linksys to PPPoE .. that should work .

For more detailed steps or questions re: this issue pls dont hestiate contact me. Best wishes.


Pls enable you Wireless Encryption for your home network security.

Ciao .

Wireless internet connection


I may be able to help with this...but I need a detailed description of how you have things connected between the XP desktop, the cable, modem, the Linksys router, and the laptop. Also, is the Linksys router new?

Typically, the wan port on the wireless router connects directly to the cable modem with a cat5 network cable....then the desktop pc connects to the router...on port 1 for example...with a similar cable. Once the wireless router is set up properly, the laptop should then be able to connect using wireless.
