I have comcast cable, but used to have verizon DSL. When I had everything configured correctly using my DI-524 and verison dsl, it worked fine. But now for some reason using cable modemit doesn't. Let me give you an example.
I can connect (no problems) with my PC using an internal wifi card, but as soon as I try to connect to the net and network with say; a laptop or another PC wirelessly...they cancel out one another continuously, conectuing and reconnecting, one at a time.
Can someone help me out with this problem, I can't figure it out.

To connect to the Internet you need a few extra things aswell as a network card and install the LAN card driver. 1. You need to sign up with an Internet service provider. 2. Connect a LAN cable from your computer to the DSL or cable modem 3. You need a DSL or cable modem and connect and configure the modem to inaccordance with your Internet service provider's instructions. 4. Install Internet Explorer if it has not been done. 5. If everything has been done correctly, when you open Internet Explorer youcan access the Internet.
If you have a wireless router and it is connected to the DSLor cable modem then - To connect to yourwireless router, the router needs its wireless settings to be configuredwith the SSID, encryption key etc., also the wireless cards in all thelaptops/computers needs to be configured with these router's wireless settings.Then the laptops/desktop computers can communicate with your wireless router.
Hi Susie With related to your particular issue it seems like that your broadband modem is not configured for the router. There are basically 2 types of connection. DSL and Cable modem. Verizon, ATT are DSL and comcast other providers give you a normal cable broadband connection. If its comcast make sure the cable from the comcast modem is going to the internet port in the linksys router and also make sure that there is a system connection the linksys router and the cable from the system goes to any of LAN 1, 2, 3 and 4 ports. Then reset your cable modem by using a pin and inserting to the reset hole in the modem. You could use the same step to reset your linksys router as well .If its a verizon or dsl connection you need to put normally your username and password in the router page. here is the link to how to configure linksys for your internet modem. Here is a video as well on it? http://in.youtube.com/watch?v=vSAXMO7aNzg http://tinyurl.com/5tqqhl
Also post the linksys router model. your ISP modem model number and also information on how many systems are wired to the router and wireless and let me know if you need more help.
In looking on the internet the unit is a DSL gateway. Trying to use it on cable internet is not a real good way to set up your network because I believe the router is waiting for a DSL sync before the services turn on. I would spend the money and pick up a Linksys or Netgear G router, there around $50.
Please understand as I get very basic to start but things very obvious to you I cannot see.
Generally when including a router in a home network starting from the cable (tv) or the phone socket (dsl) in the wall with a phone wire plugged in. The next box is generally provided by your internet service provider and is a modem/something that connects to the phone line or cable. Then sometimes when only one computer exists computers are directly connected to the modem with an ethernet cable (looks like a fat phone wire with oversize connectors) or a USB cable (small flat retangular ends).
When you want to add a router for multiple computers. The computer gets disconnected. If a USB cable was used it is often replaced with an ethernet cable and that cable connects to the WAN port (probably separate from a block of 4 lan ports) of the router you bought (tell me if you have two routers -- that is a different problem). If your service comes from a cable (tv) company your router may already be properly configured. If however you have DSL service from the phone company the chances your router is correctly configured are less. To finish with the cabling story -- your computer then hooks to one of probably 4 LAN ports all in a block. Now if you are lucky power on all devices and boot up your computer and see if you have internet access. If you do great if not please provide me the name of your internet service provider or a link to their help/support website and I will see what I can do to assist in completing the router setup. Until your wired computer gets access to the internet your girls wireless connections will not work either. Once we get the wired connection working we will address the wireless connections.
If necessary unplug the router and plug the computer back into the original cable until we get the router working.
Has any machine ever successfully connected through your router to the internet wired or wireless?
If not the requirements of your ISP must be reviewed to assure the wan/modem side of your router is configured correctly. This will require at least your ISP (phone./cable company) name or preferably a link to his support web site to gather information.
The manufacturer's and model of your wireless router/access point and wireless adapters (computer if the wireless adapter is built-in) will also be required to acquire common copies of the manuals to facilitate the configuration of the devices.
IF you provide the necessary information in a comment to this problem we can continue to step toward the establishment of a wireless connectin to your laptop.
Does your wireless router supply DNS addresses via DHCP or are they configured into the wireless adapter on the other computer? If the DNS addresses are configured into the working laptop's wireless adapter and not the router -- they may need to be configured into the wireless adapter of the new laptop. Is there a proxy server configured into the browser of the new machine that should not be there or does not match the working machine? Is the new laptop statically configured to an inappropriate IP address or gateway or DNS servers for the network you are attempting to use it on.
router is configured incorrectly.
I need more info to help you. who is your DSL thru? is it using PPOE (probably)? are you having trouble thru wireless or wired into router?
suggestion...call your DSL provider they should be able to help you ge tthis configured over the phone. If not...let me know...we can work on it.
