Is it as slow as when you connect it from the router(not the modem) to your pc with a wire instead of wireless? if so its bc adsl is slow in nature and you may need a filter adapter going into your MODEM first

Show me how to connect linksys wireless


Hi

The Router configuration is not that much difficult, only few thing you have sure,
1) Correct ADSL Connection User name & password,
2) Chose unique ip address in All host.

Follow the mention bellow instruction to configure and connect to Wifi Router,

  • Plug the network cable ( Mine was Blue ) which comes with the Router Box pack to your computer. The other end goes into any of the Router Ethernet Port ( 1 or 2 or 3 or 4 )
  • Now type in 192.168.1.1 in IE or Firefox or any browser. You will prompted for password which is admin. You must be logged into Linksys Router.
  • Now since your ADSL modem is also having the same IP , we will change the IP address for WRT54G2 Router to 192.168.5.1
  • Under Setup >Basic Setup look for Network Setup and Change Router IP. Change to 192.168.5.1 and Save changes.
  • Since the IP has changed you will need to close the Browser.
  • Sometimes the IP doesnt change automatically. Do a IPCONFIG / RELEASE and then IPCONFIG / Renew

Making WRT54G2 Router talk to ADSL broadband modem
  • Plugin the Ethernet cable which comes from the Modem into the port on Wrt54g2 router which says Internet.
  • Open Internet Explorer and Type in 192.168.5.1.
  • Type in same password ( admin )
  • You will be in Setup > Basic Setup
  • Take a look at Section , Internet Setup. The current selection should be Automatic Configuration DHCP. Select Static IP instead.
  • Add following details to it. In the first step we backed up All the IP configuration. Use them here
Internet IP Address: . . .
Subnet Mask: . . .
Gateway: . . .
Static DNS 1: . . .

Configuring for Wireless Connection :Now once your Router is talking with Modem, it is pretty easy to connect on Wireless. The only thing we need to setup here is Security. Lets get WIFI
  • Get to the Lynksys page again. Do all login and regualr stuff.
  • Now look for menu Wireless, click on it. You should land on Basic Wireless Settings.

  • Select wireless configuration to Manual .

  • Give a Wireless Network Name (SSID), make sure its unique.
  • Make Wireless channel selection 11 ( 11 - 2.463 GHZ)
  • Select Wireless SSID Broadcast to Enable
  • Save Settings and you will be back at the same page with changes you made.
Now Lets secure the Router :
  • Go to Wireless Security on the same page.
  • You will need to configure here Security Mode : WPA Personal, WPA Algorithms: TKIP
  • WPA Shared Key is what you will need when you connect to your router without wire. This key does the authentication and keep unwanted people away. Add 8 digit alphanumeric key.
  • As suggested in comments, there is a new mode which you can use : WPA2 with AES
  • Save changes.Just make sure you save that key to a notepad or remember it.

Wrt54g2 wireless security

  • Now last step, Move to next menu Security > Firewall .
  • Uncheck Block Anonymous Internet Requests .

Where do find my security key to connect to the internet..I,m trying to set up a new computer..Thanks


If you have access to a wireless computer that is already connected to and operating on your network, then you should go here and download this utility http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareDownloadIndex?softwareitem=Im-88880-1&cc=us&lc=en&dlc=en
and then run it. Once it fully scans, click on Show Advanced Tools in the bottom left of the window and select Retrieve WPA/WEP Key, it will be on the right side.

If you do NOT have a wireless computer available, then you need to loginto your router (sorry, but I do not know which router you have) and go to the wireless page. If you have WEP, just copy down the WEP key that has the radial button selected (green dot) and that is your key. If you have WPA, copy the Preshared key.

If you do not know how to get to your router setup, go to a computer that is conencted to your router by a LAN cord. Go to Start > Run and in the Run window type CMD. If you have Vista or Win 7, go to the Start Orb and just type CMD into the serch bar. In the command prompt window type IPCONFIG /ALL now look for Default Gateway (that's your router) and copy down the IP Address.
Now open a web browser utility and type that IP Address into the address bar.

My laptop finds wireless router but will not connect to internet


Hi there. You may need to connect to the wireless network manually. What is the operating system running on your computer? If XP, you may follow these. (This is also applicable in other operating system, it may just vary a little) Right click the monitor icon showing on the system tray near the clock. Point the mouse in the icon and it will display the name if it is wireless network connection or network connection. Right click the icon and look for view available wireless network. If it is not showing, look for network connection. Right click and select "open network connection". Right click wireless network connection and select "view available wireless network" . Look for the wireless network you're trying to access or have connection.Highlight and click connect. If encrypted, you need to supply the pass key or security key twice and hit connect. It should allow you now to go online wirelessly. Please remember these, you should be able to go online wired. Make sure that there are other wireless computer connected to the wireless network you're connecting with and can go online wirelessly.

Hope this help :)

Can't even connect to "setup assistant"


it sounds like you need to keep using your usb modem to connect to the internet. then setup internet sharing on the computer and connect the wireless router to the network plug on the computer.....

then basically you are sharing the internet to the plug on the back of the pc into the router and then wirelessly out to the network and PS3

How to setup an adsl modem and a router

Internet connection


Connect a computer to one of the lan ports 1-4.
Connect the adsl modem to "internet" or "wan" port of hub.
Open the hub's configuration page in your browser, usually this is http://192.168.1.1 Under Setup->Basic Setup, set the configuration for "Internet Connection Type " to "Automatic Configuration - DHCP". Under Network Setup, enable the hub's internal DHCP server so your lan hosts can get their ip's from the hub. Each local computer should have DHCP enabled. Your adsl modem must support DHCP for this to work, some do not. If it still doesnt work, try setting "PPPoE" instead of DHCP.

Networking


You actually have a couple of issues here. Fix these in this order. 1.) Login to router and turn off wireless (if you're not wanting to use wireless) 2.) Connect the ADSL modem CAT5 port to the WAN port of the Belkin router. 3.) Login to router and turn on NAT and make sure DHCP is enabled. 4.) On your Windows machine turn on DHCP under the network settings. This should allow your connection to be setup automatically and stop wireless access on the Belkin router. Let me know if you need more help. JC
