Two possibilities:
1) Your BIOS is not configured properly, in which case you would need to enter your CMOS setup at boot (usually by pressing the DELETE key, F2, or another key), and enabling the ethernet port.

2) If that is not the problem, your ethernet port has failed, and you would have to replace the motherboard.

Good luck!

Modem light is blank on motorola wr850g, how do i fix?


If the modem light is not turning ON,
1) check if the modem is ON
2) check if the ethernet connection is properly made
3) check if the port on the modem is working, confirm it by connecting it straight to the computer.
4) check if the ethernet cable is working fine.
5) Then try power cycling the router. Unplug the power cable and connect in back after 20-30 secs.
6) Then try pressing and holding the reset for 20 secs.
7) Finally connect a single ethernet cable from any LAN port to WAN port and check if the modem light is ON.
Ultimately, if even after this step, if the light doesn't turn up, either the modem LED would have gone bad or the WAN part of the router would have gone bad.


For further clarifications, revert!
Thanks for asking,

Modem router(quest gateway) works on one computer but won't connect to two other computers. was working on two ,and now only the one wired to it.


Place your wireless G router in a wide open and central location. Don't connect the power plug into the router, yet. Make sure your computer is turned off.
1. Step 2
Connect all the devices.

Find the Ethernet cable that connects your PC to the modem. Unplug the Ethernet cable from your PC and insert it into the wireless G router's WAN port. You should have an additional Ethernet cable that came with your router. Take this cable and plug one end into one of the LAN ports on the router. Then connect the other end to your PC's Ethernet port.

2. Step 3
Turn on your modem, router, and PC.

Plug the power plug adapter into the modem. Turn on the modem. It'll take approximately 30 seconds for the modem to boot up. Connect the power plug adapter to the router and the other end into a power strip or outlet. Like the modem, it'll take about 30 seconds for the router to boot. Turn on your PC.

3. Step 4
Verify lights are on for your devices.

Make sure the following lights are on for your router: power, WAN, and LAN light. If you don't see any of them lit, confirm these devices are turned on. Make sure the Ethernet cable connections are installed correctly.

4. Step 5
Install and configure software.

Use the setup wizard application to configure your Belkin wireless G router. Set up features, such as creating your password and setting up your time zone. Continue to follow the setup wizard so you can configure  other settings.

How do i set up without the installation cd


Try this after you've pressed the small reset button on your router follow this procedure:
  1. Turn off your modem, routers, computer, and wifi receivers, and laptops and printers on the network.
  2. Connect the Wifi router with an internet cable to the modem. The router will have an internet input port (ethernet) that should be labeled differrent than the rest of the ethernet ports on the router. Plug the ethernet into the internet or modem port on the router, and to the modem...DON'T TURN THE MODEM ON YET.
  3. Turn your router's power on and let it cycle up.
  4. Then after the router is up, turn on your modem and let it cycle up. It will find your router as the main MAC address and this will establish communication between router and the internet via modem.
  5. After your modem is cycled and all lights are correct, you can turn on any computer, printer etc... and the router will assign MAC addresses to your printer etc while maintaining a proper internet connection.
that's all you should need...Since you already have a working modem to pc... remember this "firing order" and if you have a power outage or have to move again, you'll be good to go.

Can't connect to internet after resetting router.


Try to connect your PC straight to the cable modem and see if the problem persists. If so, the modem is the problem.

You might have to reset your modem.
Unplug your router (power and ethernet to modem), unplug the power of the modem and wait 20 seconds. Plug the power back into the modem and wait until all lights are on. (This sometimes takes a minute or so.) Then plug in a cable into the modem FIRST and THEN into the router.

Now connect the PC to the router and see if you can get internet access.
If not, check your PC settings. It should obtain the IP address and DNS automatically.

If this doesn't help, please supply more information on what modem you are using.
