Hi there! This are some steps on how to
setup your modem/router
New DSL Modem Available
Embarq is now shipping an updated version of the DSL Modem called the "660". It is smaller than the older model (645) and is much easier to setup.
A few years ago, Sprint/Embarq changed the way their servers communicate with the DSL modems. The new method is called DHCP, which is how the 660 modem works. The older 645 Modem used "PPPoE". So it's best to have the new 660 DSL modem.
The older 645 modem also had the same default IP address as the Linksys Router (192.168.1.1) - so you had to change one of the addresses to make them work together.
The new 660 DSL modem uses 192.168.2.1 as the default IP address. This does not conflict with the default IP address of the Linksys Router (192.168.1.1). Note that if you had changed the Linksys Router IP address to 192.168.2.1, then you will first need to reset it back to the default address 192.168.1.1.
If you call Embarq and request the new 660 DSL modem they will sent it to you at no cost. When you install the 660 DSL modem, you need to be sure that you power down the old 645 modem amd leave it off at least 1 hour before you plug in the 660 DSL modem. The Embarq server needs to "forget" the old 645 modem. After an hour, all you should have to do is plug in the new 660 modem and everything should start up properly.
Call Embarq Tech Support 1-877-646-3282 if you have problems setting up the modem. If the Internet Lights does not come on after a few moments - then call Embarq Tech Support.

You can't just connect up a new router to some ISP's (internet service provider) and expect it to work. My ISP requires the MAC address of the router before it can access the internet. Call your ISP and tell them what your doing. The MAC address is the physical hardware address of your router (there is no other one the same in the world). The MAC address is on a sticker on the router and consist of 12 numbers and letters.

the problem you are facing is due to the double nat issue(the embarq modem provides the ip address in the range of belkin router, that is 192.168.2.1)...hardwire the pc to the lan port of router.
login to the router setup page(type 192.168.2.1 in IE)
in router setup page, click on lan settings and change your lan ip to 192.168.5.1....the problem ll get resolved...if still the status is not connected, switch off the router and modem and switch on it after a minute....it ll get fixed
