This may be a lengthy description, but I just wanted to be as forthcoming as I could, as I was annoyed by the lack of support I was able to find to fix this problem myself. As far as I understand it, the problem is in the router. I don't know what it "thinks" it's doing, but the solution detailed below will essentially just tell it to do the basic things it should be doing.

What I had to do to fix this (Same router model, same issue) was to unplug every cable from the back of the router (including the cat-5 cable coming from the modem and going into the WAN port), except for the computer that I know works when plugged directly into the modem. I left the modem turned on, though disconnected from the router.

The point of this was to have a simple connection between computer and router so that I could get into the router and tweak its settings. For some reason it was freezing up on me when the modem was plugged in and I could not access the router at all. So, after plugging in only this computer to the router, I unplugged the power to the router, waited about a minute, and plugged it back in. When the router first turns on all of the lights on the front come on. Wait for all of the numbered ones to go off (by 'numbered' I mean the lights numbered 1-4 on the right side of the front panel display) except the one that corresponds to your computer's connection port in the rear of the router (the number your computer is plugged into).

Once this has happened you should be able to get into your router through a web browser by putting "192.168.0.1" (no quotes) into the address bar. The default username/password combination (which you should be prompted to put in) is "admin" for the user name, and leave the password field blank.

You should now be viewing the router's page, which should by default be showing the "SETUP" tab. If we cant fix the router by renewing your DHCP (as detailed below), then we will return to this page.

For now, plug the cable from the back of your modem into WAN port on the back of the router. Click on the "STATUS" tab (3 buttons to the right of SETUP), and look under the "WAN" heading. Note that the settings (I'll refer to them as "WAN Settings") displayed under this heading are as follows:

MAC Address
Connection
IP Address
Subnet Mask
Default Gateway
DNS

If it says "Connection : DHCP Client Connected" and there are numbers besides just zeroes for the lower WAN settings, then your internet should be working. Verify this in a new window by attempting to browse to your homepage or google or something. If it does not work, or if the Connection status is not connected, then click the "DHCP Renew" button directly to the right of the "Connection" setting.

A number of things could happen here. If it works, the WAN settings should no longer display only zeroes (you may have to navigate back to this page). If the DHCP renew attempt times out or doesnt work, then navigate back to the "SETUP" tab on the main page of the router (the page we started on).

There should be a button in the middle of the page under the "Internet Connection Wizard" heading labeled "Setup Wizard". Click it, then click it again as it changes to "Launch Internet Connection Setup Wizard". The four steps are:

  • Step 1: Set your Password
  • Step 2: Select your Time Zone
  • Step 3: Configure your Internet Connection
  • Step 4: Save Settings and Connect

For the "configure your internet connection" step, click the button that copies your MAC address. At the end of this process your router will be reset. Again, wait for the lights on the front of the router to display properly before signing back in. You will have to sign back in afterwards using your new password (admin should still be the username). At this point it worked for me. If it is still not working, go to the STATUS page again and renew the DHCP (same step as before) now that you have run the setup wizard. Good luck, hope this solves it for ya!

I can not get internet access to my router, I have internet access but only by directly connecting my desktop to the modem. The modem will not send internet access to my new router.


I understand that you are not able to go online through the router WNDR3400. Please perform the below task to reset and reconfigure the router:

RESET:

With the help of a paper clip, press the reset button on the back of the router for 20 seconds (please refer to the label on the bottom of the router for reset button location). Release the reset button after 20 seconds and turn off the router. Turn the router on after few seconds.

CONNECTIONS:

1. Connect an Ethernet cable from the modem to the WAN port of the router (isolated port).
2. Connect the computer to the router using any one of the 4 available ports. Please make sure that there is no direct connection between the modem and the computer (either using Ethernet cable or USB cable).
3. Power off the modem and the router after making the connections.
4. Power on the modem and wait for the lights to come on and then power on the router.

RECONFIGURE:

1. Open a web browser like Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox or Safari.
2. Access the router's GUI by typing http://192.168.1.1 or http://www.routerlogin.com.
3. When prompted for Username and Password, please enter 'admin' for the Username and 'password' for Password.
4. Click on 'Basic settings' from the left menu and select 'Use Computers MAC Address' from 'router MAC Address' section.
5. Click Apply.
6. Once it updates the settings then power off the modem and the router. Power on the modem and wait for the lights, then power on the router.


Please revert back for any further clarification.

Hello,

Is this the first time you set your router? Make sure that the cable from your modem to your router is connected properly. You can also try connecting the modem directly into your PC just to make sure your modem is connected to the internet. If it is working without the router, reset your router then connect the modem again to your router.

If your modem(the device given by your ISP) connected the linksys router on WAN port just power down all devices and power on modem and make sure all lights are on and then power on linksys router. This should fix most problems. If no luck connect your computer to modem directly and check if you are able to log on to internet! If your modem is not working then your ISP is the best option to call!

Here are some troubleshooting steps that you can do so you can isolate whether the problem is with the router , the modem or your pc.
1. Disable / enable the wireless connectivity in your laptop.2. Restart the laptop. Then check if it is working. If not, go to the next step.
3. Restart your modem and router by unplugging the power cord on the back of the devices. Wait for the devices to load, then check if it is working. If not, proceed to the next step.
4. Try connecting your laptop to the modem directly by using an ethernet cable. If it did work, the problem is with the router. Its best to call the manufacturer of your wireless router if that's the case.
5. If step 5 still didnt work when you already connected your laptop directly to the modem, the problem is with the modem itself. Call your internet service provider and they'll do troubleshooting steps on their end too.
Hope this was helpful! Have a great day.

Adsl wont stay on ,quick set up ,says cant find modem


Either the router is not connected properly to the modem, or the modem is not set up properly. First, unplug the router from the modem and disconnect power to both of them. Make sure the modem is connected to its data source, in this case the telephone line. Make sure the company has authorized the modem and make sure it's connected to the phone socket they specified, if they did. You should plug a CAT-5(ethernet) cable between the LAN port on the modem and the WAN port on the router. Now power on the modem. Wait until the modem's lights indicate it has a connection. If the modem doesn't indicate a connection, call your ISP. It will probably be as simple as them sending a refresh signal to it. After the modem finds a connection, power on the router. Your internet service should now be working. If not, try plugging the computer's network cable directly into the LAN port on the modem. If that computer then has internet, your problem is with the router. If the computer still doesn't have internet, then the problem is either with the settings on the computer or there's still a problem with the modem/ISP

Unable to connect to the internet using a linksys wireless adapter. Connects to the router but can't find the internet.


Isolate the issue by directly connecting the PC to the router via ethernet cable (if possible).

If you were able to get online while hardwired connected to the router, then check the IP address of the wireless network connection, check the wireless security if the network key matches.

If you cannot get online while hardwired to the router, then directly connect the computer to the modem.

If you were able to get online while directly connected to the modem, then the problem is the internet settings on the router. Check the WAN configuration, such as DHCP or PPPoE.

If you cannot get online when directly connected to the modem, then you will need to contact your Internet Service Provider.

Wireless router problems


your computer is only connected to the signal coming from the router that's why it's saying connected but it seems that your router is not properly configured to provide internet access since your dns server is the same as your default gaetway. it could be that the your router is not in sync with the modem.
- if it's working before, tyr to power cycle everything by turning all the devices off then turn on the modem first, wait for all the lights on the modem to turn on then power on the router and the computer.

- if the router is for initial setup, kindly provide me you ISP, brand and model of the modem and how you connect the modem to the router and tell me if how you access the internet directly from the modem.
